Saints Row IV Armchair-A-Geddon

One of the biggest selling points for the ludicrously spectacular Saints Row IV was the crazy awesome super powers it gave your psychopaths puckish rogues. They were so awesome, in fact, that the powers wound up overshadowing almost every other aspect of the open-city mayhem game. Why do you need to trick out cars when you super-run and […]

Fight-The-Dragon-Gameplay-1

DIY RPG Currently an Early Access game but scheduled for full release in October, Australian indie developer 3 Sprockets’ Fight the Dragon is a hack’n’slash adventure game with a seriously addictive level editor and an already thriving user community. While the game’s developer-created single player game is currently a little thin and repetitious, the ability to […]

ArcheAge, a new Korean MMO from developer XL Games and publisher Trion Worlds, just saw its North American release this past week, and I hopped in to check it out. Trion’s Rift had one of the most technically successful launches of any recent MMO, but things didn’t go quite as smoothly this time around. With nearly […]

Yoshi's Woolly World

Ever since his platforming debut in Super Mario World, Yoshi has been a mainstay in the Mario universe and its auxiliary properties like Mario Kart, Mario Party, Super Smash Bros. and more. While he stepped into the spotlight with Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island for Super NES, in spite of his fanfare, Yoshi’s starring roles […]

Tower defense games are standard fare on mobile devices, and it’s not hard to understand why. They’re usually fast-paced, action-heavy games that don’t require the kind of precise — yet still often awkward — controls that shooters demand. Maps scale well to iPads and other tablets, and there is a nearly infinite number of variations […]

Call-Of-Duty-Advanced-Warfare2

The Call of Duty franchise has continually sold well throughout its existence, particularly with games since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, but with 2014 containing launches of games like Titanfall, Wolfenstein: The New Order, Destiny, and Evolve, the series needed to make some meaningful changes to keep up with the competition. After sitting through […]

When I was younger, I would sometimes buy packs of construction paper with my allowance. This wouldn’t be for some art project (at least I saw it back then), but rather supplies for me to create levels in video games. I remember conceptualizing characters, levels, and even level hubs using pen and notebook paper, then […]

A gluten-free RPG. A 3D action platformer with beat ‘em up mechanics and RPG elements, which also stars a protagonist made out of bacon, is definitely a page jumper from the get-go. The team behind it are Kickstarting the project and hoping to also get a Greenlight on Steam. After a few hours of getting […]

Super Smash Bros

There are few games in this industry that come with as much fanfare as the Super Smash Bros. franchise. Debuting on the Nintendo 64 in 1999, every successive Nintendo console has received a new entry that has gone on to be one of the top-selling titles on the platform, with Melee and Brawl each selling extraordinarily […]

A Six-Shooter FPS/Rogue-Like Worth Giving A Shot With the immediate classics that Delvolver Digital seems to be producing, Heavy Bullets is another title that takes the formula set by a genre and flips it into a new and exciting experience that seems both unique and familiar. On PC only, Heavy Bullets is a polygonal FPS […]

After making a strong comeback with last year’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Ubisoft is making bold moves with Assassin’s Creed: Unity. Not only doing away with the naval combat that was so popular in Black Flag, but also making this entry exclusive to current generation consoles, Unity could be the entry that changes the […]

Hyrule Warriors

Despite being one of the most beloved franchises of all-time, The Legend of Zelda series is not known for its ability to differentiate itself from previous entries. Sure, the technology, movesets available to Link, and the overall feel of the game change with each successive entry, but at the end of the day, Zelda games typically […]

Dead Island 2

While the internet has rendered many E3 reveals as less than surprising this year, as well as recent years, there were a few titles that ended up being legitimate shockers when they were announced at E3 2014. One such title was Dead Island 2, the follow-up to Techland’s 2013 zombie action survival title, Dead Island: […]
