What I Learned Playing Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth

Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth is now available, though I’ve had the opportunity to try it a while, particularly in multiplayer to round out the experience of the team member composing our review of the game. I won’t do any scoring or critiquing myself, but I’d like to share some facts for those who have made more »

Civilization: Beyond Earth’s quests are brilliant

There’s one thing I always wanted in Civilization V. I wanted to feel like I had more control over my decisions, as though there were some sort of purpose. Civilization: Beyond Earth gives players that in the form of quests. With quests, every player gets to feel like each game could be even more unique. more »

There are no good Siege Worms in Civilization: Beyond Earth

I bet you’re expecting a Civilization: Beyond Earth review today. After all, the other sites have them up. Some minor, technical difficulties have unfortunately gotten in the way and our review won’t be online until Monday. In the meantime, I’d like to share an Civilization: Beyond Earth anecdote, if I may. Siege Worms are the more »

Skyrim girls experienced growth spurts

As I’ve said multiple times in the past, I have modded the ever loving crap out of my Skyrim game. This occasionally leads to odd situations, such as the intro sequence breaking down, or Jarl Ulfric having a gag over his mouth for the entire game. This time around, it seems to have caused a more »

Costume Quest 2′s final costume is disappointing (Spoilers)

Again, just to make sure, this little piece is going to contain some big ol’ Costume Quest 2 spoilers. Like, the biggest Costume Quest 2 spoilers possible, probably.

There are four days left before the Battle Chef Brigade Kickstarter ends, and it is an undoubtable success.

Paranautical Activity dev threatens Gabe Newell, gets punished

Paranautical Activity launched and was removed on Steam on October 20, 2014. That might as well be the epitaph on its tombstone, because it was removed the same day. If you blinked, you probably missed it. Is that a record for a game being pulled from Steam, by the way? For those not familiar with Paranautical Activity, more »

I have a Skyrim stalker

Skyrim has a lot of fun sandbox tidbits. Amongst those is the ability to invite certain adventurers along. They follow you, carry your stuff, attack your enemies, and are capable of doing a few other things depending on who they are. The only downside to this is that the game decides who is and isn’t more »

Enter the InnerSpace on Kickstarter

In the same appealing way that Darksiders is the “sampler” of  main stream videogames, InnerSpace appears to be a loving mixture of lesser known titles. Created by PolyKnight, InnerSpace seems to have elements of  Flower, Antechamber and Shadow of the Colossus as core ingredients to its recipe. The basic idea is for players to pilot an aircraft through an inside-out world, fulfilling the more »

Metallica will shred Blizzcon 2014

Well, this is something of a surprise. Former metal gods and current metal punching bags Metallica are headlining BlizzCon 2014, of all places. Guess that subscriber revenue is still flowing in! Of course, it helps substantially that Blizzard is mitigating the cost of the event by selling “Virtual Tickets,” essentially charging you $40 for a more »
