Castle Crashers Remastered Review

image (2)

Castle Crashers was one of the biggest games on the Xbox 360’s Xbox Live Arcade. Its bright art style, excellent multiplayer, and insanely fun gameplay made it an instant hit. Since then, we haven’t really seen much like it. Thankfully, The Behemoth has seen it fit to bring the glorious adventure into the next generation with Castle Crashers Remastered on Xbox One. ...

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Estoc

download (1)

Today’s Greenlight spotlight is focusing on Estoc, a simplistic multiplayer sword-fighting game. Often in games, simple mechanics lead to boring and repetitive gameplay, which in turn repels potential players. Estoc features such simple mechanics that I worry it won’t have enough lasting potential to draw a large community. However, as well as Nidhogg did (which is a very similar game), ...

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 ...

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Sentinels

download (1)

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 ...

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 ...

Today’s standout on Greenlight is a game that I actually had my eye on late last night. Ambit, a 3rd person action game that has a strict focus on story which drives the gameplay is a game that is being developed by Zebik Media. Zebik Media is an extremely new addition to the indie community, as they have just gotten ...

It is a prelude to Bare Mettle’s larger project, Sui Generis, which ...
