So Hero Academy, right? Some of you have probably heard of the Robot Entertainment title. Apparently it’s pretty good. I write this while looking at the seven games running on my screen and decrying the abilities of the dark elves. Because seriously. For those of you who are unaware, Hero Academy is an asynchronous strategy… Read More »

Dawnguard has been out for the Xbox 360 for a while now, but it just hit PC. So you know what? I’m going to talk about it now. Dawnguard does deliver on the initial promises made by both the trailers and Bethesda DLC in general. There’s a lot of content, a whole host of new… Read More »

Note: I’m talking about the endgame pieces of Diablo 3 here. There isn’t much present in the way of spoilers, but I’m speaking to a very specific population. If this isn’t you, that’s cool. Rock on in your Diablo 3. I want to chat about mine for a minute. So until this week of vacation… Read More »

So apparently a lot of people got Diablo III. About 6.3 million as of May 22nd, according to Blizzard. According to my math, at the $59.99 price point this means Blizzard now has all the money. Six million and climbing may also serve to explain the glut of day one issues plaguing the service, as… Read More »

Blizzard Entertainment’s Diablo III has been out for a week. If you weren’t aware it was kind of a big deal. This also means you likely already have Diablo III. For those of you still on the fence or who haven’t ever Diabloed before, let’s get some of the basics out of the way. Diablo… Read More »


Review: Binary Domain

So let’s talk about Binary Domain. In short, Binary Domain’s a goofy, mostly self-serious cover-based third-person shooter. Another way of saying all that might be saying that it’s Gears of War with robots, and that’s accurate enough. It’s those small differences that will either sell you on Binary Domain or not, but regardless the efforts… Read More »

Review: King Arthur II: The Role-Playing Wargame

So I’ve had King Arthur II for about a week now on Steam, and I’m not sure I understand it any more than I did when I first acquired a copy. The game, from Paradox Interactive, came out on Steam a while back, and while I’ve played a fair amount of it, I’m still not… Read More »


Review: Puzzlejuice: Breaking Your Brain with Awesome

So let’s talk about an iPad game. Generally these have been less than great. With the exception of a pretty cool port of Plants v. Zombies, standouts like Infinity Blade, and several thousand variants of Angry Birds, it’s hard for a touch game to convey any sense of speed without feeling clunky. That’s what makes… Read More »


Armored Core V is (Hopefully) Still Coming

If you were holding out for Armored Core V well, hold less of your breath? The game has been delayed until January 2012 in Japan (astute gamers might note that this should hopefully be soon), although Playasia has the game set for April and Amazon is predicting a US release of December 31, which is… Read More »
