Nice! Crypt of the NecroDancer is getting a DLC prequel

Crypt of the NecroDancer is such a neat game. It's a fusion of rhythm (you need to time your movement to the beat of the music as best you can) and roguelike dungeon-crawling (you need foresight and strategy to hit enemies but not be hit b...

Review: Demon Truck

Demon Truck released on Steam last week, and I've been trying to work my way through it ever since. It started life as an entry in the Ludum Dare game jam, where developers try to make a game within 48 hours. It's got an interesting control...

TumbleSeed is a different kind of roguelike

What exactly is a "rolly roguelike?" The second you see TumbleSeed in motion, you'll understand. It's a game about a seed dodging holes and other dangers while rolling ever-upward to the top of a mountain. Ahead of a showing this weekend a...

You were aware that a new ToeJam & Earl game is currently in production, right? If not, I'm happy to be the bearer of good news. Series co-creator Greg Johnson took to Kickstarter last year to crowdfund ToeJam & Earl: Back in the G...

Below delayed again, no new date given

Earlier this year, Capybara Games announced that Below would release this summer. It was substantial news because Below felt as if it were one of those games that has been talked about forever but was never any closer to coming ou...

Necropolis review photo

Review: Necropolis

The "friends" argument in the critical side of gaming is an amusing one to partake in. "Aren't all games inherently better with friends?" people say. Well, no. There are of course varying degrees of success in which a game implements multip...

Review: Heart & Slash

Over the years, I've backed very few Kickstarter projects. I'm cognizant of the risks involved, and for that reason, I'd rather not take a chance on anything from studios without a proven track record. But I have made a few exceptions ...

Touhou roguelike coming west on PS4, Vita

Once upon a time, Touhou games, despite being something of a phenomenon in Japan, didn't have a snowball's chance in Hell of ever seeing a western release. But it's clearly no longer that time. NIS America has announced plans to publish&nbs...

Downwell is great on PlayStation, with one major caveat

During the waning hours of a Montréal game jam, I spied a developer playing Downwell on his laptop. Unlike the rest of his comrades, mostly female designers making last-minute adjustments to their projects, he was enjoying someo...

 
 
Loot Rascals photo

Loot Rascals makes a wonderful first impression

I came into playing Loot Rascals at a recent indie-game-night event not knowing what it was, or who was making it, or anything at all about it, really, other than the name and what it implies. Loot? It's everywhere in gaming these days, bu...

I take it back when I said Marluxia is the worst boss, fighting Ansem, while you are forced to float and having to dodge his dumbass charge attacks is annoying in Abd then of course he comes back for round two, just die Jeez

Question: would anyone here be interested in hunting monsters together on older games? Either MH4U (made a new character but also have an endgame save) or Portable 3rd HD (ppsspp + HunsterVerse - brand new character)
