A while back, we shared a ton of amazing games that we nominated in various categories as some of the best games from our time at PAX East 2017. That weekend brought many of the Marooners’ Rock team to Boston, checking out hundreds of games and experiencing quite a bit of sensory overload. Just as I mentioned in our nominations post...[Read More]
I can’t help but feel captivated and deeply moved by the game Hob. During my hands-on experience at PAX East, I had the privilege of sitting down with members from the Runic Games team and trying things out myself. Needless to say, I was impressed and fell in love.
Physics based games always get me excited. As soon as I learned about Forts, a physics-based battle game, I personally volunteered for this one at PAX East 2017 back in March.
Back in March, I had the chance to try out all three of the major VR systems for the first time: Oculus, HTV Vive, and PSVR. Most of the experiences I played feel like an homage to classic arcade games, which is where I believe VR will eventually find the footing it’s been needing. However, there were some interesting developments f...[Read More]
PAX East 2017 provided a lot of great chances to see upcoming games from many companies on the show floor. At one of my many appointments, I got to sit down and play the PC game Conarium from Iceberg Interactive. Conarium is a chilling Lovecraft-inspired game, which follows a story involving four scientists and their endeavor to challenge...[Read More]
Boston, an often overwhelming city, offers one of the best opportunities to see the newest games and ideas in the industry. Six of our writers descended into the city from all over the country and we want to take the time to show some of the most noteworthy games we had the pleasure to check out. Now, it is important to note that there we...[Read More]
Survival horror is a favorite genre of mine. I’ve always enjoyed good tension and feeling helpless in a video game (if that doesn’t sound weird). In my opinion, a good horror game needs to make the player defenseless, so the stakes feel even higher when approaching a each situation. A sort of disadvantage I guess I could say, the most com...[Read More]
One of my favorite multiplayer experiences across all consoles has to be Monster Hunter, starting first with Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. Some of my best gaming memories from college involved everyone gathering at a friends house with their 3DS systems to hunt super challenging foes, all while making our characters stronger and sharpening o...[Read More]
During PAX East, I had the pleasure of sitting down with developers at the IMGN.PRO booth for a hands-on preview of the game My Memory of Us. Though the game is still in its early stages of development and has yet to be given a release date, I can confidently say that I have never been so deeply moved by a game so quickly.
Back at PAX East, I sat down with Italian developers, LKA, to play The Town of Light. Originally released on PC, this story driven title is set to be released on PS4 and Xbox One later this year. After sitting down and discussing the game with 3D Artist, Lorenzo Conticelli, I hesitate to call this “survival horror.” Calling this horror, i...[Read More]
