Scraps: Modular Vehicular Combat Preview


Scraps: Modular Vehicle Combat is just what it says on the tin: build a car, fight, collect scrap from your fallen foes, hit the evac point with your pickings, repair and revise your vehicle, then get stuck back in. Notice that’s “revise,” instead of “upgrade”?  You aren’t just limited to what you started with in a match.  If your current ... Read More »

Leap of Fate Feature Image

It’s always nice to see Steam’s Early Access program being used the way it is meant to be used, as a way to help fund indie games that are still being developed and not as a dumping ground for misleading garbage. Though this is happening less and less due to the Steam Refund Program, Early Access still has a bit ... Read More »

Most Anticipated Game of Fall 2015 – Xenoblade Chronicles X

Photo Cred:

Living in a lake-effect snow area tends to warp one’s perception of seasonal changes, so imagine my surprise when I discovered that the December 4th debut of Xeonblade Chronicles X actually counts as an autumn release. Huzzah! It’s a particularly exciting localization for two reasons: First, the original Xenoblade Chronicles on the Ninteno Wii almost didn’t make it to North ... Read More »

One where you can play as Shovel Knight slicing into a police officer with a broadsword? Yes, the game’s as awesome as it sounds. In Road Redemption, you play ... Read More »

Kidding aside, Chaos Reborn is an interesting title. It’s a funded Kickstarter title that has since gone on to Steam’s Early Access, and it is currently in ... Read More »

Tree of Savior – First Impressions of the Closed Beta


Most MMO players have fond memories of their first encounter with the genre. It’s not unusual to hear them recall a time before Warcraft’s decade long market dominance, when they first stepped into the online world of games like Everquest and Ultima. My memories, however, are of the Korean MMO Ragnarok Online. A game that despite, or more likely because ... Read More »

Evoland 2 Preview – All the Genres

Evoland 2

Games generally aim to have what is known as a mechanical identity—a certain set of mechanics the game is easily identified with.

Mechanical identity is one of only a ... Read More »

Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 First Impressions – Terror in the Night

Five Nights At Freddy's 4

Something you should know about me is that I’m a very nervous person. I jump whenever a friend sneaks up behind me to say “boo,” I look around me when I hear strange creaks in the house, and I freeze up at unexpected knocks at the door. There’s a warning in front of these sorts of games that tells me that ... Read More »
