In a new recurring column called “You Should Be Playing”, we’re going to take a look at games of all types – the AAA to the Indie, and explore why they deserve a look.

Steam Hammer Hands-On: It Leaves All the Guess Work to You

Steam Hammer is a sandbox survival game set in the year 1837 and prides itself as being a hardcore RPG in a “steampunk” setting.

Dead Cells is a Rogue-Like Metroidvania Game You Need to Play

Having just landed in Early Access late last week, Motion Twin’s Dead Cells has quickly become the Indie Darling of 2017. Rightfully so, this blend of stylized pixelated gore, Rogue-like repeatability, and Metroid-like exploration and combat mean Dead Cells is just about a perfect storm of gameplay and panache. All this, and it’s not actually coming out for another eight to twelve months. Yep, Dea...[Read More]

Our Prey Bullet Point Review in Progress

I have to admit that Prey isn’t usually the kind of game that I play. I generally have always generally liked third person games better. I guess there’s something to be said for seeing your character, right? At any rate, however, I’ve been watching Prey’s development and the ramp up to last week’s release with interest. Not only is the premise of the story interesting...[Read More]

Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs PAX East Preview

Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs is a game which hadn’t been on my radar before PAX East, but I’m happy I had the opportunity to talk to some of the developers and play it. In fact, I spent 45 minutes just playing this game and for anyone who hasn’t been to a convention before, spending that long on a single game on the show floor is rare. If you are looking for an interesting, fun, and quirky tactica...[Read More]

The Surge is the best homage to Dark Souls yet…

The Surge is the latest in a line of Dark Souls-inspired action RPGs. But unlike so many of the also-rans, The Surge actually happens to be good. We’ve spend the better part of the past two weeks dabbling in Deck13 Interactive’s new adventure, and are happy to report that if it stays on target it’s going to be a new addiction for fans of the hardcore action RPG genre. Deck13 are clearly fans of th...[Read More]
