  • Stronghold Crusader 2: Hands-On Impressions (PAX East 2014)

    The other weekend at PAX East 2014, I also checked out the upcoming Stronghold game, Stronghold Crusader 2. Though I'm no wizard of the RTS genre (no brag-worthy APM score here), I certainly enjoy playing them on a casual level. How did I fare going hands-on with the game? Spoiler: I got my butt...

  • Secrets of Grindea (Beta) - Co-Op Gameplay Stream

    Last night some of the Co-Opticrew and community decided to check out the beta version of Secrets of Grindea. The game on the surface looks like a JRPG, plays a bit like a Zelda game, and has hints of a ARPG like loot system. We thought it'd be a good idea to stream our adventures online. Whi...
