Dragon Fin Soup: PAX Prime 2014 Preview

Dragon Fin Soup

Ah, roguelikes. Classics such as the ever-charming Nethack to the more recent Bionic Dues have provided their own takes on the punishingly difficult dungeon crawling subgenre. I don’t understand what draws me to games like this, but it probably has something to do with what makes each one unique. Nethack presents itself with ASCII text, Pokemon: Mystery ...

Randal’s Monday Preview (PC)

Randal_logo

I’ve never been much of a fan of point and click adventure games. Sure I’ve played (at least part of) Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead, but that is really the exception to the rule. What initial drew me to Randal’s Monday from Nexus Game Studios wasn’t the humor, interesting art style, ...

PAX Prime 2014: Interstellar Marines Hands-On Preview

Interstellar Marines

I’ve considered myself a fan of tactical first person shooters for a long time. Thing is, it’s kinda hard to get them right. So many things can go wrong; bad AI, weak gun reports, poor squad management options, and so on. Thus, it’s interesting to see games like Interstellar Marines crop up; something ...

PAX Prime 2014: Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Hands-On Preview

Shadow of Mordor

Not One Ring in Sight Mordor used to be a nice place. Mighty stone structures dotted the landscape, fields of lush grass lined the planes, and Uruk herded slaves throughout the region. It’s a deceptively pretty world I got to explore in Monolith Productions’ Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. If it weren’t for ...

PAX Prime 2014: This War of Mine Hands-On Preview

This War of Mine

The Call of Duty Goes Unheard This War of Mine was my PAX Prime 2014 game of the show. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, allow me to explain exactly why I think that. This War of Mine is a sort of “what if?” story of my life, your life, ...

PAX Prime 2014: Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Hands-On Preview

borderlands

Come With Me Now What if I told you the next Borderlands game consisted of fifty percent playable bad guys, twenty-five percent anti-heroines, and twenty-five percent annoying orange robot? Would you scream and cry? Would you shout to the heavens, “by god, they’ve done it!”? Would you ask, “does it take place ...

PAX Prime 2014: Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell Hands-On Preview

gat_out_of_hell

My first trek down the show floor of PAX Prime 2014 went something like this: “oh boy, I get to see the new Volition game they’re revealing here! I wonder what it is!” Then I glanced to my right, and just past the Metro Redux displays was Saints Row: Gat Out ...

PAX Prime 2014: Minimum Hands-On Preview

minimum

My demo with Atari’s Minimum, or “how I trekked over a mile from the Seattle Convention Center to go to the top floor of a really expensive-looking hotel and demo Atari’s Minimum” (we’re still working on the strapline) was very different from the rest of my experiences at PAX. More casual, more ...
