Review: ‘Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach’

Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach (direct link) holds true to tabletop roots, and the turn-based strategy game manages to capture the feel of the more complex strategy games that its publisher, Slitherine, is...

Review: ‘Space Hulk: Deathwing’

When I first saw there was going to be a first-person shooter based on the Space Hulk games, I was overjoyed. The typically turn-based game puts you in control of a squad of Terminators with heavy bolters,...

Review: ‘Battlefleet Gothic: Armada’

There has been a steady stream of Warhammer games lately, and with Sanctus Reach and Dawn of War III just around the corner, it doesn't appear this will stop anytime soon. Battlefield Gothic: Armada is an...

Xenonauts May be the True XCOM Sequel

Xenonauts was a great game that fell victim to timing. It all started when 2K Games announced they were going to reboot the XCOM series, and as fan excitement quickly died down when they saw what was in store....

The Brief Beauty of Submerged

Submerged is an odd little game that takes place in a flooded city, where you'll need to sail about and scale the protruding tops of buildings to get medical supplies for your ill brother. The third-person...

Why Verdun is the True WWI Shooter

Bringing something new to the FPS genre is no easy feat. Have a look at the Call of Duty series, and you'll see that even when jumping from Soviet battlefields to space-based dogfights, it's still the same ole...

Blood Bowl 2 Review

While I'm a big fan of the Warhammer universe, it's been a long time since I played a football game. In fact, I think the last one I played was on the original Playstation. So it was with some hesitation that...

Review: Crypt of the Necrodancer

There's something admiral about a game that can add a new feature to a well-known genre, and by doing that make it feel fresh again. And there's something even more admiral if they can do it and still please...

Review: Pix the Cat

Copying ideas is one of the hallmarks of gaming, whether it be the Doom-like FPS genre, the Minecraft-like sandbox genre, or the infamous Rogue-like roguelike genre. Yet, for every game that introduced a...

Review: The Witcher Adventure Game

I've never gotten into the "digital boardgame" titles before, with the exception of a brief round of Settlers of Catan. Video games can do so much more than just shift static pieces across a digital board,...

Review: Xeodrifter

METROID LITE Red suit. Glowing visor. Gunplay, upgrades, and platforming exploration across a vast alien terrain. No, this is not Samus Aran’s vengeful hunt of the Metroids. This quest is a far more...

Hand of Fate is a surprisingly good game. That's "surprising" not because I had low expectations, but because I thought the game looked very good and was surprised that it surpassed even that expectation. It...

Space Hulk Ascension Edition: Review

The secret of all great military units throughout history has been in their ability to attack and defend as one. The Spartans and Roman Legionaries locked shields. Special forces of today's world have complex...

Review: Wings! Remastered Edition

I never had a chance to play the original Wings! but it's one of many games that pulls on the strings of nostalgia for many-a-geek, and it's a game that was recently remastered and re-released. Wings! is...

A Return to Sam & Max Hit the Road

I'll never forget the day I got my first computer. It wasn't one of those go-to-the store things. My dad had a friend who built compturs and we stayed at his house the whole time he put it together for us, and...

Review: Azure Striker Gunvolt

Juiced, Jarring, and Very Very Blue Lightning’s a miraculous thing. Unfathomable chemistries, in a heartbeat, channel such incredible energy from the clouds that, for just an instant, the sky extends to...
