    By Robert Florence on September 2nd, 2014 at 9:00 pm. Hello youse. There is SO much board game news right now that we really have to do another column that is about BOARD GAME NEWS. Company mergers, massive releases, re-prints, you name it – it’s all happening in the wide world of sports we call “Board Game Sports”. (We don’t call it that.

  • Tricera-plops: The Stomping Land Removed From Sale

    By Adam Smith on September 2nd, 2014 at 6:00 pm. The last time we heard anything from multiplayer dino survival game The Stomping Land it wasn’t a stomp at all. It wasn’t a roar or a chomp, it was a statement about a change of engine. The dinos were gearing up for a switch to Unreal Engine 4, or so the developer reckoned, but it looks like the whole affair has come to a standstill.

  • The Best Pun On Kickstarter: Ray’s The Dead

    By Ben Barrett on September 2nd, 2014 at 5:00 pm. It’s been a while since we’ve heard from strategy-puzzler Ray’s The Dead, which first showed up at Sony’s E3 conference in 2013. The eponymous Ray is a zombie with the power to control others, giving the game a great blend of dark humour and tactical party-based action.

  • Tricks And Tomes Will Break Your Bones: Runers

    By Adam Smith on September 2nd, 2014 at 4:00 pm. Now this here story I’m about to unfold took place back in the early afternoon – just about the time of my deep submersion in a different game altogether, an enormous, deep RPG. I only mention it because sometimes there’s another game…I won’t say a masterpiece, ’cause, what’s a masterpiece? But sometimes, there’s a game.

  • Laser Days: Gratuitous Space Battles 2

    By Adam Smith on September 2nd, 2014 at 2:00 pm. The conflicts in Gratuitous Space Battles 2 are certainly deserving of the adjective applied in the game’s title but the new video below brings several other descriptives to mind. ‘Colourful’, ‘cunning’, ‘extravagant’, ‘fabulous’ and more besides.

  • Invisible, Inc. Early Acccess Impressions:

    By Alec Meer on September 2nd, 2014 at 1:00 pm. Invisible Inc is a turn-based, grid-based, cyberpunkish stealth strategy game from Klei, creators of Don’t Starve and Mark of the Ninja. It’s about secret agents breaking into sinister corporations to steal cash and data. It’s about risking everything and losing everything, but then trying it all again because you’re damn sure you can do better.

  • Freeware Garden: Star Commander

    By Konstantinos Dimopoulos on September 2nd, 2014 at 11:00 am. Having distilled the core elements of 4X strategizing into a sleek and easy to get into game, and thus having done away with lengthy tutorials and hefty pdf manuals, I am happy to declare that Star Commander has achieved an uncommon straightforwardness.

  • Old News: Strafe-Jumping’s Near Death In Quake 3

    By Alice O'Connor on September 2nd, 2014 at 9:00 am. I learned to strafe-jump the hard way back when games were games, my keyboard made of broken glass, and my mouse an actual mouse biting my fingers as I clicked. I still welcome Quake Live adding an automated slower substitute. Everyone should get the experience the joys of zipping around like a rubber ball.
