BattleTech lets you unload mech mayhem, XCOM style

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...

SmuggleCraft is an ambitious racer, but needs some tweaking

I'm a huge fan of racing games. I'm terrible at them, but I've always loved driving around at high speeds with my friends. Throw hovercraft into the mix and I'm sold from day one. Games like F-Zero, Diddy Kong Racing (I know they were water...

 
 
 
We Are Chicago preview photo

We Are Chicago is a bit rougher than its namesake

We Are Chicago takes place in Chicago's south side. It is a city whose residents are besieged by violent crime, with homicide rates that make Los Angeles and New York look like Pleasantville. Much of that is confined to the gang-heavy south...

 
 
 
 
Relativity preview photo

Willy Chyr's Relativity is Escher art come to life

When you jump off a ledge in Willy Chyr's Relativity, you can keep falling. Forever. The abstract world, made up of floating platforms and puzzle rooms, loops. Why climb a huge flight of stairs when you can just "fall" to the top? But that'...

 
 
Goliath preview photo

Goliath eliminates the repetition found in survival games

Survival games like Don't Starve can provide some of the best moments in gaming. The early hours of trying to fathom how this new world works, the slow strengthening of self until you gain confidence, and the subsequent downf...

 
 
Super Dungeon Bros photo

Super Dungeon Bros plays like garbage, with humor to match

Unnecessary negativity is a blight, especially for writers. It can poison the mind and alienate the reader; a cancerous state of mind that serves nobody. Personally, I try and avoid it whenever possible. That mentality does me no favors. No...

 
 
 
 
Beyond Eyes preview photo

Beyond Eyes abstracts the world as perceived by a blind girl

I have been following Beyond Eyes since I first heard about it a year and a half ago. Videogames can be powerful tools for relating experiences that may otherwise be difficult to comprehend. Blindness both fascinates and terrifies me; I kno...

 
 
 
RIVE preview photo

RIVE was my favorite twin-stick shooter at PAX East

When I learned that Netherlands-based Two Tribes Studios (Toki Tori & Toki Tori 2) was bringing its snazzy metal-wrecking, robot-hacking, twin-stick shooter RIVE to PAX East this year, I jumped at the chance to set ...

 
 
Windward preview photo

It's easy to zone out in the open ocean of Windward

The PAX East expo floor is one of the least peaceful places to play a game. There are sweaty crowds, children who haven't learned to use their inside voices, and booths blasting dance music and/or eSports commentary. And yet, at the back of...

 
 
Necropolis preview photo

Harebrained Schemes nails it once again with Necropolis

As I explored the opening area of Harebrained Schemes' third-person action roguelike Necropolis at PAX East 2015, I discovered an inviting treasure chest. Upon opening it, I realized too late that I wasn’t alone in that first room. Wh...

 
 
Firewatch hands-on photo

Firewatch has topless teens, meaty hands, and mystery

I've been firewatching out for Campo Santo's new 'exploration mystery' since hearing about the talent behind it. Artist Olly Moss, Mark of the Ninja designer Nels Anderson, and season one The Walking Dead writers and des...

 
 
Planet of the Eyes photo

Planet of the Eyes is a treacherous place for Polaroid robots

Crash landing on an alien planet is the worst. There's hazardous flora, deadly fauna, and even rock formations that seem to have some sort of blood lust. That just piles on top of the existential crisis of being a robot with an unknown purp...

CaimDark Reloaded

One issue with Telltale games in action-packed settings like Batman or TWD is that it would look silly not to have any action, yet they cant have an involved battle system, so the QTE battles get kinda lame, and sometimes
