Take a peek, find something good, and maybe share the keys you won’t want with friends. GamerTell’s Best Indie Game Bundle more »

Testing out Starbound Upbeat Giraffe

The Starbound Upbeat Giraffe update is here, as I mentioned yesterday. It’s a huge development, since it entirely changes aspects about the game. There’s a different start, new progression, additional gameplay elements, and feels completely different. Which is, of course, why I decided to do a brief Let’s Play video showing what it’s now like. more »

Videoball Preview: Do not play Videoball against Tim Rogers

Look, I get it. Videoball, the minimalist title from Action Button Entertainment, is a promising game, and you want to give it a try. And Tim Rogers, the main mind behind the game, is right there. But don’t give in to the temptation. Sure, you may have seen the game here and there over the more »

Tales of Aravorn: Seasons of the Wolf Price: $24.99 System(s): PC Release Date: November 15, 2014 Publisher (Developer): Winter Wolves (Winter Wolves) ESRB Rating: “Mature” for violence and suggestive themes I’m a huge fan of visual novel games.

Starbound receives first stable update since March 2014

Wow. It’s been almost a year, but Chucklefish has finally come through and delivered a stable update for Starbound, it’s interstellar exploration and adventure game. It’s a shock and awe kind of moment, am I right? Not that there haven’t been minor, unstable updates in the year since. But, the crux is that those updates more »

The Zen of Cat Goes Fishing

I wanted something simple to play before I’d fall asleep. A soothing sort of game, one where objectives were there, but didn’t really matter. They were trappings to ease one into the mechanics, but never forced the player down one route another. Something with no complications, that only required me to enjoy the ride. I more »

Dragon’s Dogma Online is coming to Japan this year

Capcom is adapting the Dragon’s Dogma IP into a free-to-play MMO, the company announced in a recent issue of Japanese game magazine Famitsu.

Shoot the breeze with Scooter in Tales from the Borderlands

It’s not clear if you’ll be able to Catch-a-Ride! with him, but according to the newest trailer for Telltale’s episodic game, Tales from the Borderlands, players will, at the very least, be able to interact with the lovable mechanic, Scooter. It’s a good thing, too, because Scooter’s magnetic personality and endearing slowness are downplayed in more »

I don’t get Dragon Age Origins’ combat

Recently, because it was available for free, I got a hold of Dragon Age Origins. I’d heard it was an incredibly good RPG, and that well may be true. Certainly, it seems to have all the interesting parts that a good RPG should have. It has interesting stories, solid character creation, and you get to more »

Here’s Guild Wars 2 Heart of Thorns

Guild Wars 2 first released in 2012, and now, almost two and half years later, it is finally getting its first expansion. Guild Wars 2 Heart of Thorns takes place in Maguuma, and adds a lot of new aspects to the game. Not only are there new places to explore, like brand new open world more »

JumpJet Rex Preview: A big head and little arms

In a time when a Borderlands Collector’s Edition can run you $400 and licensed games, specifically Alien: Isolation and Shadow of Mordor, are some of the best on the market, we can always find solace in at least one familiar constant. We’ll never run out of 2D indie platformers. The most recent addition to that list (that I’ve more »

Squirreltopia Review: Twitchy Fun

Squirreltopia Price: $3.99 System(s): PC Release Date: January 12, 2015 Publisher (Developer): Surreal Distractions (Surreal Distractions) ESRB Rating: N/A Squirrels are twitchy, tricky creatures. It’s actually quite odd that they haven’t really starred in many games until now, aside from say Acorn Assault, because they’re a natural protagonist. Especially for gut-reaction, muscle memory platformers. Cue more »
