The Surge 2's combat is all about violent self-expression

Things aren't going well in The Surge 2's dystopian landscape. Jericho City is a far cry from the dimly-lit industrial buildings that dominated so much of The Surge's runtime, but it's hardly a happy place. A mysterious storm lingers overhe...

Review: The Council - Episode 2: Hide and Seek

Back in high school, my buddies and I used to always play a "hide and seek" map in Counter-Strike 1.6. It's a darker map set on just a single street of a neighborhood. Looking back, I'm not sure how we got so many enjoyable hours out o...

Review: The Council - Episode 1: The Mad Ones

As soon as I began playing The Council, I was immediately reminded of Agatha Christie: And Then There Were None on the Wii. I doubt others will have this moment in their head, but bear with me. The atmosphere felt incredibly similar as...

Review: The Surge

The first few minutes of The Surge are nothing if not evocative. It begins on a shuttle. Warren, the game's protagonist, sits idly as the car marches forward. He's a gruff, vaguely plain-looking man; the kind of guy whose worn and tired fea...

Review: Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom

These days, it's unusual for me to actively seek out role-playing games. The allure of embarking on a grand adventure is still strong as ever, and I love assembling and growing attached to a crew of characters, but the sheer time commitment...

Action-RPG The Surge really wants you to lop off limbs

Deck13 has garnered interest from Dark Souls fans, myself included, with The Surge. It's an action-RPG with a near-future-Earth twist that has you dodging, whittling away at your enemies, and striking with a finishing move to slice off spe...

The Surge is doing its sci-fi action-RPG thing in May

"The Surge" isn't just something you'll find in a stuck-in-time pizza joint's soda fountain -- it's also an upcoming sci-fi action-RPG from Deck13. Has the studio learned some hard lessons from its 2014 release Lords of the Fallen? I'd sure...

Review: Styx: Shards of Darkness

The last time I played Dungeons and Dragons, I ended up in the shoes of a nasty gnome thief. A cocksure little prick who valued gold over the life expectancy of his friends, never took a shot that wasn't cheap, and would gleefully steal any...

Keep an eye on action-RPG Shiness this December

Admittedly, Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom isn't my normal jam. It's doing the grand action-adventure RPG thing, which I can occasionally sink deep into, but it's rare these days that I feel like I can take on that sort of time commitment....
