Capcom offering refunds for Resident Evil Revelations 2 on PC

Unlike its console counterparts, the PC version of Resident Evil Revelations 2 does not include local co-op. This comes in stark contrast to the game’s adverts and Steam page, which all listed offline co-op as an included feature until today. Capcom told Eurogamer that local co-op was cut “to ensure a stable user experience across a variety of different PC more »

One Piece Treasure Cruise Review: Puzzle and Dragons, Minus Puzzles, Plus Punching

One Piece Treasure Cruise Price: Free (microtransactions) System(s): Mobile Release Date: February 4, 2015 Publisher (Developer): Namco Bandai ESRB Rating: N/A As a One Piece fan, from back at the tail end of the 4Kids days (shout-out to the folks from even before that), it’s still hard for me to process Bandai Namco’s recent streak of game localizations.

Freaking Meatbags Review: Get Off my Lawn

Freaking Meatbags Price: $9.99 System(s): PC Release Date: February 4, 2015 Publisher (Developer): Plug In Digital (Wild Factor) ESRB Rating: Not Applicable I have a spurious suspicion that independent game developers secretly judge one another in some Holy Grail-like search for the project worthy of the title “Most Indie”. I gather that the criteria must be grueling; who can more »

The Real Best Valentine’s Day Gaming Gifts

Being an Elven princess, I don’t really understand romance as you mortals do. You have weird, strange rituals that make no sense to me. However, I have been watching you for quite some time, and I think I’ve managed to figure out your various mating rituals and how they work. Thus, I have compiled a more »

I Braved the Snow for the Rosalina Amiibo

There are two facts, unrelated to football, that you should know about Sunday, February 1, 2015. The first was that this was the day that Target’s exclusive Rosalina amiibo became officially available when stores opened at 8:00 am.

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 »

Desert Ashes Review: Warfare on Ice

Desert Ashes Price: $9.99 System(s): PC Release Date: November 10, 2014 Publisher (Developer): Nine Tales Digital (Nine Tales Digital) ESRB Rating: “Everyone” Desert Ashes is interesting, as it emulates a style you’d think would be in more of a state of abundance than it actually is. Strategy RPGs are a dime a dozen, but what more »

My Holiday Tradition: Secret of Mana

My brother and I share an annual gaming tradition. Every late December, during the crunch time just before Christmas arrives, he and I set aside the weekend to partake in a specific conquest. We must, for if we don’t, there is no Christmas. Every year, we start a new game in Secret of Mana on more »

I’m learning the art of selling video games

I’ve been collecting games for about as long as I’ve been playing them, and I’ve been playing them for over thirty years. I enjoy collecting. I like having everything arranged nicely on shelves and stacks of new additions awaiting cataloging and sorting. I love buying old things in person, talking with the people who owned more »

Paradigm Alpha Demo Preview: The Future is Dumb

The eponymous Paradigm of the video game demo Paradigm inhabits a world where nothing works particularly well. Various generations of radically varying technological advancement have been kludged together to make a quasi-functioning world, but what with all the horny computers, beat-boxing eggplants, and industrialist sloths with bad comb overs, it’s a wonder anything gets done more »

Democracy 3 Extremism DLC: How Controlling Will You Be?

Democracy 3 was already a complex and fun game. It put you in charge of a simulated country, and showed you how your reactions and choices regarding certain issues would effect your country. It was expanded once with Social Engineering. Now, the trend continues with the Extremism DLC. As of May 13, 2014, your Democracy more »
