Hands on with MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries

Sitting down to demo MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries, the first thing that struck me was the scale of what I was seeing. The demo I played didn’t start at the helm of a mech, it started in a garage. A hanger bay I explored on foot as a tin...

Vanillaware and Atlus have teamed up for 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, "a departure from the studio's traditional fantasy style." While I still can't pin this one down after watching the TGS 2017 trailer -- more gameplay would've helped! -- it h...

Voltron game announced for PSVR

You've got character: The Hunchback

When it comes to competitive multiplayer games, we all have our favorite characters and classes. In this series, I'm putting some of mine under the microscope to see what makes them tick, how they fit into their games, and ultimately why I ...

Developer Harebrained Schemes crowd-funded BattleTech in 2015 to the tune of nearly $2.8 million. It was a little less than both Shadowrun: Returns and Shadowrun: Hong Kong combined. That reward was probably earned, given that the preceding...

Titanfall 2 is on the right track with its free DLC plan

Respawn Entertainment has a commendable post-release strategy for Titanfall 2, one that will hopefully help grow the player base and keep folks engaged enough to stick around. The short of it is that "anything that has effect on gameplay" w...

Mech-combat sports game RIGS has single-player, too

Guerrilla Cambridge's RIGS: Mechanized Combat League was an early PlayStation VR favorite of mine; so early, in fact, the device was still called "Project Morpheus" back when I previewed the game. To date, it has largely been billed as a m...
