An Octave Higher Review: Musical novel

An Octave Higher Price: $11.99 System(s): PC Release Date: March 27, 2015 Publisher (Developer): AGM Playism (Kidalang) I count myself among the minority crying out for more narrative-driven games and for better narratives within them.

Pillars of Eternity Price: System(s): PC Release Date: March 26, 2015 Publisher (Developer): Paradox Interactive (Obsidian Entertainment) ESRB Rating: Rated Mature for Blood, Sexual Themes, Strong Language, and Violence I have a real love/hate relationship with CRPGs.

Steam Workshop now supports paid mods, starting with Skyrim

User-made mods can now be bought and sold through the Steam Workshop. Although a wealth of player modifications have been available free through the Steam Workshop for years, such content has never been sold, barring a few rare instances of developer-sanctioned DLC.

Kerbal Space Program takes off April 27, 2015

Let’s be honest with ourselves – there aren’t many runaway Early Access hits. Some are good, great even, but few are titles that go above and beyond to impress players.
