Funko Additions to ReAction Line!

Funko Additions to ReAction Line!

A fan of retro action figures? Funko and Super 7 have you covered. With the 2013 launch of the ReAction Figures Series Alien they’ve returned to bring us series 2 and expand to a new property. They’re bringing a classic take on these vintage characters in November – some of which look like they’re having a rough time on the Nostromo.   Not an Alien fanatic? No problem ̵...[Read More]

Far Cry 4: Hands-On Preview

Far Cry 4: Hands-On Preview

Ubisoft’s Far Cry series has continued to gain acclaim with its first-person, open-world gameplay. I was fortunate enough to get some hands-on time with the game. So let’s talk about the game and what’s it has to entice gamers to the Himalayan country of Kyrat.

IndieCade 2014: Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions

IndieCade 2014: Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions

Geometry Wars has had an interesting path. Born from Bizarre Creations, it started life as a mini-game in Project Gotham Racing 2, and was eventually released as its own in the form of Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved. Its success led to ports and spin-offs before an eventual sequel: Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2. After the dissolution of Bizarre Creations, many of the now defunct’s staff creat...[Read More]

IndieCade 2014: VR Typing Trainer

IndieCade 2014: VR Typing Trainer

I have found my reason to purchase an Oculus Rift once the consumer kit becomes available. I was just meandering (I was born in the south, I know how to meander) down the festival walk, going nowhere in particular, when, set up simply in the corner of a larger tent, I saw VR Typing Trainer. I suppose more accurately, I saw the crowd around VR Typing Trainer, and I decided to investigate further. I...[Read More]

IndieCade 2014: Choice Chamber

IndieCade 2014: Choice Chamber

Twitch Plays Pokemon was an unqualified phenomenon, but it was incredibly messy. The concept of controlling the game solely through crowdsourced input was fascinating to see in practice, but it didn’t seem like it could hold attention long-term (at least not mine). I don’t know if Choice Chamber was thought up because of Twitch Plays Pokemon, or if it’s just coincidence, but it t...[Read More]

IndieCade 2014: Cuppa Quest

IndieCade 2014: Cuppa Quest

Why did Karl Marx hate Earl Grey tea? Because all proper-tea is theft! I’ll wait while you compose yourself… Unlike Karl Marx, I’m quite a fan of proper tea (none of your herbal nonsense, thank you very much). This is why a game about finding tea struck me as particularly interesting. Still in proof of concept, Cuppa Quest was created during the 2014 Global Game Jam, and isn̵...[Read More]

IndieCade 2014: Swords & Soldiers 2

IndieCade 2014: Swords & Soldiers 2

I’m not much of a real time strategy guy, generally. I’m a big fan of Civilization, and other turn based strategy titles that give me time to think and plan; to me, a great strategy game is like a nice game of chess, with deliberate moves planned and executed. Now, two days into IndieCade, I find myself intrigued and excited by not one, but three real time strategy games. Yesterday, I ...[Read More]

IndieCade 2014: Mini Metro

IndieCade 2014: Mini Metro

Living in the Los Angeles area has been my first encounter with a metropolitan rail system. I was not an eager adopter, by any means, but now that I’ve spent the better part of a year using the LA Metro for nearly all of my transportation needs, I (mostly) adore it. Because of this, while walking around the Game Showcase today at IndieCade, Mini Metro stood out more than its vibrant minimali...[Read More]

IndieCade 2014: Close Castles

IndieCade 2014: Close Castles

I only had a couple of hours to spend at IndieCade today, and only a couple more that I can spare over the weekend, so I’m reduced to brief experiences with many of the festival’s offerings. One of the most memorable to come out of today was a game called Close Castles, from the maker of Threes. It was quick, smooth, and incredibly fun. Close Castles is a real-time strategy tower defen...[Read More]

With that said, Bethesda is at it again with a new gameplay trailer for the upcoming horror game release The Evil Within. This title will be coming to Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC on Oct, 14...[Read More]
