Greetings Backloggers! Welcome to column 007, where if I were planning better, I would have gone and played one of the various James Bond games lurking in my backlog.

Now, I’m sure that, based on this current admission, you’re wondering why I am writing an article about an upcoming MMO. The answer is simple: TERA kicks ass.
In an effort to combat the abundance of malefic and inappropriate behavior in their popular online multiplayer game League of Legends, Riot Games Inc. introduced a disciplinary system known as the Tribunal on May 24. This system allows players the ability to judge their peers who have been reported for violating the Summoners’ Code – a set of rules published by Riot to ensure courteous play and a ...[Read More]
If you were paying attention last week (and if you weren’t, what the hell?), you already know how excited I am for this week’s Steam release of Cloning Clyde.

Last week, I had the chance to sit in a roundtable discussion with Sony Online Entertainment’s Senior Producer, David Georgeson, and members of other gaming websites. The session, which lasted about an hour long, was not only a ton of fun but gave me a new appreciation for the MMO genre. Georgeson, who boasts an impressive resume, has been working in the industry for over two decades, having...[Read More]
About a week ago, I got one of Steam's announcements for a new puzzle-platformer, CreaVures, from Muse Games. As soon as I saw the first moments of the trailer, I knew I was going to buy this game! Imagine my surprise, when I received an email the next day, offering me a chance to review it! Sweeeeeeet!
