castlestorypreview

Some time during 2011, a fledgling indie-game studio revealed the title that they had been working on for years; a game promising an exciting blend between the mold-able world of the popular voxel-based genre that gave birth to Minecraft, as well as the strategy inherent within the RTS genre.

Wolfenstein: The New Order – Looking Ahead

B.J. Blazkowicz

It’s not every day you hear that a historical genre-defining game gets another chance to wow the masses. It has happened before, with disastrous and series-ending results, such as Duke Nukem’s Duke Nukem Forever  or the Perfect Dark series’ lackluster followup Perfect Dark Zero. Sometimes reboots hit the target, such as developer Crystal Dynamics’ 2013 Lara Croft, which helps catapult a good game ... Read More »

A Hat In Time Wallpaper

Some time last year, a game called A Hat in Time on Kickstarter was brought to my attention that checked off a whole bunch of boxes in the “What Seth Looks For In A Game” list.
