Review – Peggle 2

It was 2007 when I got my first taste. Just a quick fix to get me through the day, “Try this,” a friend said, “it’s not like anything you’ve ever had before.” He was right. Not long after my first inhale, I was higher than I’d ever been in my life. Everything was beautiful. Colors […]

Review – State of Decay

After watching the development and growth of State of Decay for at least two years, it’s always a wonderful feeling to see the game release to record-breaking sales and enormous applause as it did in June.

Review – Sacred Citadel

In the world of Ancaria, the setting of the Sacred universe, there is a deep layer of character progression and role-playing inherent to both the first and second game in the series. New downloadable title, Sacred Citadel, steps away from the isometric view of old and presents a side-scrolling, beat-em-up with mild shades of RPG. The bright colors […]

Ascend: New Gods Video Preview

I had a massive sit-down with Signal Studios, developers of the upcoming free-to-play game Ascend: New Gods. Free-to-play is always a scary word, but I trust the studio and, after my time with the game, I’m looking forward to seeing the final product!

Ascend: New Gods PAX East Hands-on

“Free-to-play gaming” carries a certain stigma to it, one that suggests a modicum of anti-hardcore sentiment or is seen as an intrinsic time-waster. Free-to-play is none of these things of course, but that fact has never been made more apparent than when I sat with Signal Studios at PAX East 2013 for a hands-on demo […]

PAX East Hands-on with State of Decay

Though I’m always at-risk of fanboying out at these events, I remained generally composed when I met with Undead Labs, developer of State of Decay. I’m very eager to see the final product, though the controls have me a bit concerned.
