Review: City of Brass

It's that classic tale: strapping young hero makes his way to a mythical city to vanquish skeletons and break the genie's curse. City of Brass is a first-person action roguelite with an Arabian Nights theme. The game does a lot to impr...

Review: The Swords of Ditto

Black Future '88 is a rogue-lite with synth-punk style

I saw an unbelievable amount of rogue-lite games at PAX East. I felt like I was drowning in the damn things, but developer Superscarysnakes' Black Future '88 and its giant colorful booth made it stand out in the sea of indie titles. I spoke...

Review: Immortal Redneck

When I first saw the phrase Immortal Redneck I laughed out loud. Like a real, hearty belly laugh. It was so absurd, absurd enough to get me to give it a shot, and I'm glad I did. Although the game's humor translates about as well as it...

Review: Xenon Valkyrie+

As a child of the '80s and '90s, the retro revival of 8- and 16-bit games has been a blessing for me. I love the look, the style, and the mechanics of these titles and absolutely gobble them up when I can. In fact, I've consumed so many of ...

When I first experienced Enter the Gungeon on the PS4, I couldn’t help but think of how great the game would play on a portable system. Today, that dream finally comes true, and it’s everything I could have hoped for. While it d...

Dead Cells' Brutal Update adds tons of new content

Dead Cells took me by surprise. The self-proclaimed 'RogueVania' takes inspiration from a handful of other games and mixes them into a challenging, rewarding mix. Though it's still in Early Access, Motion Twin's procedural platformer is a p...

Nuclear Throne's final major update has landed

It's been quiet on the Nuclear Throne front for quite a while now, with the last big update releasing back in February 2016. Developer Vlambeer broke that silence this week with a new update; the final update. You'll find the patch notes be...

Review: Road Redemption

So hey, remember the 3DO? A CD-based game system that came out in the nineties and was meant to revolutionize gaming, cost nearly a thousand bucks, and was quickly forgotten? With several different manufacturers producing their own versions...

How Strafe's 'Millennium Edition' overhauls the entire game

When it released in May 2017, Strafe was something of an anomaly. The first-person shooter looked like a game from a bygone era. It was fast and violent, not unlike Quake, with relentless enemies hell-bent on stopping players dead in their ...

Review: Pylon: Rogue

Roguelikes are becoming a hot commodity in gaming. What was once a unique way to experience an old genre is now a common indie crutch to pad out an otherwise thin experience. We’ve seen absolute classics utilize elements from roguelik...

STRAFE is getting a massive update with extra content

Say what you will about the hugely divisive STRAFE, but I thought the game was a total blast. It certainly can be obtuse and definitely isn't an old-school shooter, but developer Pixel Titan's take on on first-person Spelunky was a challeng...
