    Fight the Dragon Steam Early Access Impressions

    When I first saw Fight the Dragon described as “Diablo meets LittleBigPlanet” on the game’s Steam page I thought that sounds too good to be true. But after spending a good chunk of time playing the in-progress Early Access build, I can agree wholeheartedly that […]

    Super Smash Bros. Nintendo 3DS Demo Impressions

    I haven’t played a Smash Bros. game in six years (I was disappointed by Brawl on Wii and quickly lost interest), but diving into the 3DS demo for Super Smash Bros. was like slipping into a favorite pair of tattered jeans or broken-in slippers. Link […]

    By now you’re probably familiar with indie developer Spry Fox for the studio’s hit casual game Triple Town, which combined match-three puzzle mechanics with the strategy of a city building sim. Spry Fox’s next game, Road Not Taken, borrows Triple Town‘s adorable art and design […]

  • Over 9,000 Zombies Steam Early Access Impressions

    Over 9,000 Zombies Steam Early Access Impressions

    With a title like Over 9,000 Zombies, there is no mistaking what this game is about: You kill zombies. Lots and lots of zombies. 9,000 is actually selling the game short, because in four hours of play I’ve already slaughtered more than 60,000 of the […]

    Cosmic DJ Steam Early Access Impressions

    I don’t know what the hell is going on in Cosmic DJ, but I don’t really care. I just know that this game is straight up bonkers. And I love it! Actually, it’s difficult to even consider Cosmic DJ a video game by regular standards. […]

    The Golf Club Steam Early Access Impressions

    A Tiger Woods-sized void has opened up in the video game golf market with EA Sports deciding to part ways with the declining superstar athlete late last year. EA will continue to make licensed PGA Tour games, but without Tiger’s name and playable presence it’s […]

    Grim Dawn Steam Early Access Impressions

    Iron Lore Entertainment may be no more, but its spirit is being carried on vicariously by former members of the studio behind Titan Quest, including that game’s lead gameplay designer, who are back doing what they do best at indie studio Crate Entertainment. Crate’s first […]

    Preview: Morphopolis Hands-On

    Look on any casual gaming site and you will find dozens if not hundreds of hidden object adventures to choose from. Hidden object games are fun, but there typically isn’t very much that distinguishes one from another. For the most part they are a bit […]
