Acaratus brings robots onto the tactical RPG battlefield

There is something about turn-based battles on a square grid that always seems to captivate me. Taking that idea out of the generic fantasy setting garners bonus points for me too. Granted, Acaratus is described to take place in a medieval...

The Chaos Engine is coming back with a 'restoration'

My first reaction to this annoyingly teaserish trailer for The Chaos Engine was, "Holy eff! They're remaking The Chaos Engine!" That is not quite what's happening here -- this is a "restoration" of the classic top-down co-op title (also kn...

Avalanche Studios has a steampunk-style game on hold

Will there be another Just Cause? Probably. I mean, if there's any justice, yes. But those recent pictures Avalanche Studios founder Christofer Sundberg put out on Twitter aren't it. When Edge pressed him on the matter, he came right out an...

Oh boy! Dishonored has five different pre-order bonuses

You know, I'm getting quite tired of all these exclusive pre-orders at every single retailer for every new game that comes out. It becomes a hassle if you pick a crappy one, because then you have to wait a couple months to purchase the rest...

Preview: Steam and spirituality in Civ V: Gods & Kings

Few games actually require no introduction, and this is certainly one of them. This long-winded, turn-based strategy series has persistently delved deep into the core of human history, and what it takes for a nation to start, grow and die. ...

Preview: Our first look at Dishonored

Locked up for a crime you did not commit, and accused of killing the empress you swore to protect, you are left to rot in prison for your unjust conviction. Your only saving grace is an amoral mystical being who endows you with special powe...

Dishonored unleashed a debut trailer full of Stilt Police

We've seen some very pretty screenshots of Bethesda's Dishonored, but so far, nothing in motion. Those hoping for gameplay footage will be disappointed, since this is a CG trailer, but it's still pretty exciting stuff. Check it out! The vi...

Check out this insanely awesome steampunk fight stick

I've been in the market for a cheap fight stick for a while now, but this custom one from Shoryuken forum-goer b15SDM has convinced me that opulence may be more important. After all, why get a basic no-thrills stick when you can get the ste...

Metroid arm cannon gets steampunk'd

Steampunk, while something I have never gotten into, is an interesting concept that romanticizes a bygone age of top hats, monocles and industrialization. It also gives rise to some unique takes on technology, like a steampunk version of Sa...
