AAA vs Indie: Another Meaningless Assassin’s Creed Subtitle

News of the latest Assassin’s Creed makes me wonder. Do we need another one? Haven’t we had enough meaningless subtitles? Meaningless collectibles infesting the mini-map? Meaningless and tedious – so very, very tedious – framing stories? Of course, it doesn’t matter what I wonder. The yearly arrival of a new AssCreed is as inevitable as death and annual EA Sports ...

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Okhlos

Today’s Greenlight spotlight is on Okhlos, a unique take on the action-roguelike genre. In Okhlos, you take control of an angry mob of ancient Greek citizens. First of all, it is most likely pretty obvious as to why this game was chosen for the spotlight. Controlling an entire angry mob? Come on, that sounds like one of the most intense ...

Preview: Starfall Tactics is the Next Big Space RTS

“Create a custom space fleet, lead it into battle and fight for control of the galaxy!” This is the sentence that I first read about Starfall Tactics, and it immediately led to me wanting to know more about the game. Space has always been a fascination of mine, and from space sims to RTS games such as Homeworld, I’ve lost ...

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Sentinels

Today’s standout on Greenlight is Sentinels. Sentinels is a combination of elements of tower defense and the skills involved in first-person shooters. While games such as Toy Soldiers have taken similar mechanics and implemented them successfully in the past, it is still nice to see another game trying to put a spin on the tower defense genre. For me, tower ...

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Viridi

Today’s Greenlight spotlight is on a rather unorthodox game. Rather than being a game in a traditional sense, Viridi is more of a simulation and a tool to help unwind from a long and difficult day. It is the sort of game that you pick up when you’re having your morning tea on a Sunday morning. A game that you ...

Preview: Ymir Combines 4X Strategy With City-Building

  City-building games were a staple of my youth. From games like Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom to Zeus to Caesar 3, I spent hundreds of hours building cities and watching them fail during my youth. The city-builders of today have unfortunately not had that same effect on me, and left me with no desire to revisit them once ...

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Guardians of the Forest

Today’s standout on Greenlight is Guardians of the Forest, a multiplayer brawler that features cute animals that die in various violent ways. It seems that the theme of Greenlight games the past few days has been multiplayer arena/brawler games, and as a frequent game night attendee, I could not be happier to have a wider variety of games to play ...

Revising the Many Franchises of Konami

Unless you’ve been living under a cardboard box for the last few weeks you’ve no doubt been struck by news reports of Metal Gear mastermind Hideo Kojima parting ways with Konami, his studio of residence for almost 30 years. To many observers the announcement hit like a monolithic rock plunging into the relative stillness of the videogame pond, of which ...

Space Beast Terror Fright: The Alien Game We’ve Been Waiting For

With the disappointment of Aliens: Colonial Marines, and the mixed reactions to Alien: Isolation, fans of the Alien franchise, or just alien horror in general, have had a rough time getting a decent game. While Colonial Marines was just an absolute disaster, Isolation bored many people with its repetitive mechanics and stretched-out storyline. An alien horror game needs tension and ...
