    iOS to get two new Terra Battle games

    Hey, wow. Terra Battle—Mistwalker's fantasy RPG for mobile devices—is getting not one, but two new titles this year. The studio founded by Hironobu Sakaguchi has just announced the Terra universe will expand with Terra Battle...

    Review: Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs for Mac

    I love JRPGs, but they're always so heavy, you know? So melodramatic. That's part of their appeal, I suppose, and yet there are times when I'm in the mood for something a bit more upbeat....

    Review: Thrustmaster Y-300CPX gaming headset

    Whereas online multiplayer features were originally tacked onto single player action as an afterthought or bonus, games these days focus on multiplayer. In some, it's the only option. And to communicate with with your team...

    Review: Mr. Shifty for Mac

    You would think a super secret agent entrusted with saving the world would get some nifty weapons and armor, but you would be wrong. So very wrong. Your primary weapon is your fist and your...

Whereas online multiplayer features were originally tacked onto single player action as an afterthought or bonus, games these days focus on multiplayer. In some, it's the only option. And to communicate with with your team or chastise your opponents, you'll need a gaming headset like the Thrustmaster Y-300CPX....

Prison Architect: Mobile—a port of the BAFTA award-winning management simulation game from Introversion Software—challenges players to design, build, and maintain their own maximum security prison. It's free to download, but you'll need to make one-time in-app purchases if you want to extend your sentence....

What I find intriguing about Fall of Light is that the developers acknowledge Dark Souls and Ico as their inspiration for the game. It's quite an interesting combo with quite a few years and variations between them, but a quick look at the announcement trailer will show you how it comes together....

You would think a super secret agent entrusted with saving the world would get some nifty weapons and armor, but you would be wrong. So very wrong. Your primary weapon is your fist and your trench coat is your only armor, but you're "blessed" with a very nifty skill: the ability to shift....

Review: Total War: Warhammer for Mac

May 6, 2017 | 0 Comments

Total War has built a name for itself as a historical real-time battlefield game with strategic elements. The Napoleonic Wars, ancient Rome, Shogunate Japan, the conquest of Attila...but still, one question remained—what if orcs were hit by fireballs? Thankfully, Total War: Warhammer has arrived to answer that question....

I first got a good look at Bounty Train at E3 2015, where its graphics and unique gameplay elements made a lasting impression. Although billed as a "mix of strategy, simulation and rogue-like gameplay elements," I couldn't help but think it was the most I'd had on a virtual train since Sunset Riders....

Review: Prey for Mac

May 4, 2017 | 0 Comments

The good news with Prey is that pretty much everything that's wrong with it is wrong within the first five minutes. This is important to point out because there's plenty wrong with those five minutes: the writing, the acting, the beating of racists with a wrench.
