MirrorMoon EP Review
0 CommentsPosted by Michael on September 7, 2013 under Featured, Mac, PC
Some games are truly beautiful. Ever since playing Dear Esther I've found my self actually seeking out games that don't really follow the standard formula. Upcoming titles like Lacuna Passage for example have my interest piqued. So when there was a simple banner ad on Steam, sporting some very outlandish-looking artwork and a title that read "MirrorMoon EP", I couldn't help but click on it. I was ... more.

The first gaming console I ever owned was a Sega Master System II. I loved it. I used to leave the thing turned on for days at a time with a game paused so that I could play it after school without having to restart my games (for those of you too young to realise - games back then didn't have save points). One of the games that chewed up countless hours of my childhood was Lemmings. That crazy pla... more.
Get it funded: Mafia, the Party Game
0 CommentsPosted by Michael on September 5, 2013 under Featured, Mobile
Apparently there is a game that people play at parties called Mafia (it's also known as Werewolf, or so wiki tells me). I've never played it... but reading up on it, it sounds fun. Either way, I don't really attend too many parties, being an introvert who hates people and social gatherings and all. But hey, it looks like I might not need to anymore, seeing as Advanced Studios are setting out to ma... more.
Just Cause 2 Multiplayer Beta
0 CommentsPosted by Michael on September 4, 2013 under Featured, PC
Just Cause 2 was a great game. Delivering above and beyond most peoples' expectations, the game provided an insanely over-the-top action-packed experience that is yet to be successfully repeated to the same degree. But some people didn't think it was enough. Not content with grappling and parachuting from one car to the next plane on their own, a group of the Just Cause 2 community got together in... more.
Silas Greaves Comes Home – Call of Juarez: Gunslinger Review
2 CommentsPosted by Govind on August 15, 2013 under Featured, PC
Not many games can boast story telling like Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, the fourth episode in the Call of Juarez series. After Bound in Blood many were excited about The Cartel which suffice to say was a more painful experience than going to the dentist who refuses to use drugs. But they had learned from their mistake, they came out swinging and said that Call of Juarez: Gunslinger will be goi... more.
Bigger, Better, Bolder; PAYDAY 2 Hands-On (Beta keys giveaway!)
110 CommentsPosted by Jonathan on August 3, 2013 under Featured, PC, PS3, Xbox 360
The original PAYDAY is a cult following among the fans, with OVERKILL's dedication and time on the forums in tweaking the game for the better, we have a gem (no pun) of a developer. I know, because I am part of the fans out there that couldn't stop playing it; the satisfaction of pulling off heists on higher difficulties, along with level and weapon upgrades. The Ordinary Gamer team had the privil... more.
Help it get Greenlit: Galactose – Pastries in Space
1 CommentsPosted by Michael on August 1, 2013 under Featured
Every wanted to fly a cupcake? Or maybe do battle with a giant thanksgiving turkey mothership with it's own squadron of broccoli bombers? If you said no to either of those questions you are sad and I don't want to hang out with you anymore! If you said yes, then you might be interested in Galactose: Pastries in Space, a crazy colourful space shooter/rts hybrid title currently endeavouring to get t... more.
Zombies. Review – Apparently the undead hate photocopiers too!
2 CommentsPosted by Michael on July 29, 2013 under Featured, Mobile, PC
So I've just started a desk job. It's the first time I've ever worked in an office and I had very little idea of what to expect, aside from movies like Office Space (which, unfortunately, is not an accurate representation). Overall, I have found the entire experience thus far to be quite tedious and droney... And it seems that indie developer, thebignic, noticed this at some point also as this is ... more.

Help it get Greenlit: Viscera Cleanup Detail
1 CommentsPosted by Michael on July 12, 2013 under Featured, PC, Videos
If there's one thing that RuneStorm has proven with their last release, Rook's Keep, it's that they like blood in their games. And it seems to be a continuing motif with their games if the recent proof of concept alpha they put out, Viscera Cleanup Detail, is anything to go by. Check out the video below...

This Game Deserves So Much More – Rising Storm Review
4 CommentsPosted by Jonathan on June 3, 2013 under Featured, PC
I’m a big fan of WWII games, particularly those set in the Pacific theatre of war. We’ve played a ton of games set in Europe, and there was never much focus paid to the other side of the world. Games like Medal of Honor: Rising Sun and Call of Duty: World at War manages to satisfy my hunger for war in the sweltering heat of the Pacific. Rising Storm is a standalone expansion from the origin... more.
