Grim Dawn Preview: Clone Saga

Grim Dawn Preview: Clone Saga

Starting an action RPG like Grim Dawn is always an exciting moment. I’m getting my PC prepped, ticking all the “very highs” and post-process boxes, and setting the game to borderless windowed mode (as I’m privy to do). Then the UI disappears. Entirely. That’s to be expected — this is an ...

Godfire: Rise of Prometheus Hands-On Preview — Pax East 2014

I didn’t know what to expect when I sat down with Godfire: Rise of Prometheus. Now, I can give you the five-word pitch: God of War on iPad. That may sound good, but from hands-on time, I can tell you it needs a bit of work before it hits God ...

Always Sometimes Monsters Preview – PAX East 2014

Promising a world of endless choices that question your morality, Always Sometimes Monsters has been on my radar for quite a while. The game boasts an unprecedented level of choice, making contemporaries like Mass Effect and The Walking Dead seem paltry.

Race the Sun: Endless Runner and Endless Fun – PAX East 2014

Race the Sun by Flippyfly is an endless runner that slowly introduces more power-ups and new tools through a mission-based experience system.

The Blackwell Epiphany Preview — Pax East 2014

I’m a fan of point-and-click games, especially those from Wadjet Eye Games. After playing through Gemini Rue, I was eager to check out The Blackwell Epiphany at PAX, so I sat down with Dave Gilbert, the same man who showed me Gemini Rue a year prior. The Blackwell Epiphany‘s hook ...

GlomTom Prepares for Kickstarter (with a Contest!)

Friend of the site Cliff Chambliss (a.k.a. @8BitBass) is aiming to change the way you game. Nepotism aside, his product is a genius idea. See, Cliff used to hold his sleeping children in his hands during late-night gaming sessions, but he knew there was a better way to do it. ...
