Iconoclasts is nearly here – see it in action

I’ve been writing about videogames going on about eight years now. For the majority of that time, I’ve had one eye firmly glued to Iconoclasts, an ambitious metroidvania by solo Swedish developer Joakim ‘Konjak’ Sandberg. It’s been in development over six years now, and is finally, tantalisingly close to release. Word is that Iconoclasts is […]

Guild Wars 2’s fourth season of new content begins soon

Guild Wars 2 might not be the talk of the town anymore, but the fast-paced MMO is still chugging along nicely, with a major new desert-themed expansion – Path of Fire – released just this September. It’s really rather good, bringing some satisfyingly weighty-feeling mounts to the game, making exploring feel fresh and fun again. For […]

THQ Nordic buy the studio making Biomutant

The cutesy Biomutant raised a few eyebrows after its announcement during Gamescom in August, enough that THQ Nordic have gone ahead and bought the studio making it. THQ Nordic were already publishing Biomutant, and now they own both the post-apocalyptic open-world action-RPG and developers Experiment 101 too. (more…) Powered by WPeMatico

Reigns: Her Majesty swipes right to December 7th

Nerial’s Reigns was such a lovely surprise. An utterly unique take on role-playing that worked a little like King of Dragon Pass mashed up with Tinder. Slipping gracefully into your role as King, a procession of courtly visitors sidled up on your PC or mobile phone screen, and you swiped left or right to answer their queries and […]

Touhou 16 shoots onto Steam

Touhou is a phenomenon. Despite niche appeal, this long-running series of bullet hell shmups has grown into an enormous shared franchise in Japan. It’s an indie scene unto itself, enabled by creator Zun giving his blessing to people making and selling fan works. Touhou boasts twice-yearly conventions dense with cosplayers, multiple official comic lines and fan-made works including […]

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds shows yet more desert

“Oh that’s quite nice,” you might have thought after seeing screenshots or the map of the new desert level coming to Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds. Sure, I guess looking at pictures is ‘fun’ if you like that sort of thing. But I am a deeply serious Plunker, in it to win it. Now that another new batch […]

Land of enchantment: an American Truck Sim – New Mexico photo diary

Recently, I ran our review of American Truck Simulator: New Mexico, the first paid DLC for my all-time favourite driving game, and which adds the Union’s 47th state into the game, alongside the existing California, Arizona and Nevada. Though I consider it absolutely essential, in that it really makes ATS feel like a signficant part […]

Titan Quest has a new Norse expansion and it’s out now

Well, this is a sight for Thor eyes. I thought Titan Quest was done for good, which wouldn’t be surprising considering it’s more than a decade old. But today, right now, THQ Nordic have released a fresh expansion, Ragnarok, that takes the mythological hack and slasher into the cold of northern Europe. Titan Quest has […]
