  • Impressions: Crypt of the Necrodancer

    Published at Rock, Paper, Shotgun - 18 readers

    Crypt of the Necrodancer blends roguelikes with rhythm action, neatly makes that wild concept work, and is out on Early Access today. I’ve been dipping my twitching toes in and out of it for the last couple of weeks.

  • Madden NFL 15: Top Likes and Dislikes

    pastapadre.com - - 9 readers - For years Madden has been a decent game that could be enjoyed by overlooking its considerable flaws and deficiencies which have generated frustration yet avoided game-breaking status. For many that was possible and the value was there, for some it was still too much to get past.

    Rock, Paper, Shotgun - - 4 readers - By Richard Cobbett on August 26th, 2014 at 5:00 pm. Reluctant shadow hunter Gabriel Knight returns to the scene of his first case soon, and we’ve played through the first few days (though for this one, we’ll be talking just about a recent build offering a polished up version of Days 1 and 2).

  • You Should Be Playing Tap Sports Baseball

    …Mobile games these days are largely dominated by free-to-play offerings that pressure users to spend money. Often it’s about spending money just to be able to continue playing the game rather than the more traditional paying for optional upgrades or bonus content. This has resulted in a reliance on “whales” – the incredibly small percentage…

  • Impressions: Gabriel Knight 20th Anniversary

    … of the game and turn a 90s adventure classic into a modern one too? Here’s some impressions. Gabriel Knight is, and by no small amount, one of my favourite adventure games of all time, and one I hold very dear – an early glimpse at a world that truly embraced the kind of narrative and atmosphere and maturity that we now take for granted, but was in sadly…

  • Impressions: Mini Metro

    …By Alec Meer on August 26th, 2014 at 1:00 pm. Sounds like an old British car, is in actual fact about designing underground rail systems. Basically, if you’d rather not play anything to do with transport, walk away now. No, no, hey, come on, I didn’t mean that, let’s sit down and talk about this. I didn’t really want to play anything to do…

  • Mighty Gunvolt - preview

    …This comes from a Mighty Gunvolt preview over at NWR... Mighty Gunvolt seems like a fine free experience, but it won't last. It is not overly challenging and once you are done, you are pretty fulfilled. It is an intriguing snack though and I am three levels away from beating Mighty Gunvolt with every character available. It tickles a fancy for more…

    …After publishing my thorough conversation with Pillars of Eternity lead designer Josh Sawyer, I realised that I hadn’t actually expressed an opinion about the game. I was curious and hopeful but hadn’t had a chance to play it, and see how well all of the elements came together. The backer beta, which launched yesterday, is a huge relief. Pillars…

  • Diablo III Feels Like It Was Made For Next-Gen Consoles

    …It all started with the dodge button. Blizzard added that to Diablo III when bringing it to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2013. Dodging was a great feature, but it wasn't enough to make me switch my allegiance from playing on a PC. Now that Diablo III is out for the PS4 and Xbox One, it's a different story. Read more…

  • I Just Spent Two Weeks Being A Space Commander

    …"Don't be That VR Guy," I keep thinking. I've spent the last couple of weeks playing Elite: Dangerous, a PC space-sim that works with the newest Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. It's been pretty amazing, and I'm having a hard time not being That VR Guy. Read more…

  • Eyes-On: Mordheim – City of the Damned

    …A warlock with a wooden leg was the highlight of my first day at Gamescom. I didn’t know a huge amount about Mordheim: City of the Damned before I sat down to watch a live demonstration of a typical mission, but half an hour later I was telling anyone who would listen that it deserved far more attention. It’s Warhammer Fantasy with a hint of XCOM…

  • Hands-On: Rise of Incarnates Beta

    …I spent the past two weeks living off-the-grid, as I’ve been moving into a new place. After an encounter with a very strange ISP technician, I finally have internet access again, just in time to try out the Rise of Incarnates Beta. Rise of Incarnates is a new IP from Tekken and Soul Calibur developer Bandai Namco. This PC-exclusive title is a 2…
