Anyone that knows me knows that I have been all about Cuphead since its debut in 2014. I grew up watching Disney, Max Fleischer, Ub Iwerks, and more. If some of those names don’t ring a bell, that is okay. You don’t have to recognize those names to understand that Cuphead’s aesthetic borrows heavily from those creative geniuses and the cartoons of the 1930s.
Since its launch on Steam, a bunch of us here at Marooners’ Rock have been playing a ton of Gigantic, Motiga’s new free-to-play strategic hero shooter. And now we’ve teamed up with Motiga and publisher Perfect World to give everyone a leg up on the competition!
I do enjoy a good shooter and when it comes to FPS (First Person Shooters), I think of quite a few. This time the team is wanting those of you that love the Sniper Ghost Warrior franchise to learn more about the “Safe House” within the game. What all things can you do in this safe house? What things can you create and more? You’ll be able to find out in full detail of what you ca...[Read More]
Some of the earliest first person shooters, and even games as a whole, I remember playing in my youth were Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, and Quake. Ever since Bethesda has taken over the old iD Software licenses, they’ve been slowly bringing the classics into the modern era with Wolfenstein: The New Order and DOOM. Now, it’s Quake’s turn with Quake Champions, a mulitplayer experience that’s focusing...[Read More]

That’s where the Jumpers come in, equipped with high tech weaponry, gadgets, and armor. Players will be able to take up the cause and bring the fight to the bugs with Hive Jump, a run-and-gun action game with ...[Read More]
A sequel that isn’t afraid to be different. Triangle Service’s EXZEAL is the followup to TRIZEAL Remix, but it’s much more than a simple rehash. Choose between multiple ships and specialize in each one’s weapon system. Will you focus on good old shooting, virtuously patient shot charging, or dangerous but powerful close-range attacks? In EXZEAL, it’s your choice.
It is the year 2201 and expanding technologies have given man the power to live anywhere in space. Amidst this backdrop, the story of Target Earth begins with a war between Earth (and its colonies) against a cyborg army returning from the farthest reaches of space. In the game's early stages, the nature or purpose of these cybernetic adversaries, named Chron, is unknown. However, it is later revea...[Read More]
Multiplayer is an important aspect of game design. Since the days of the Egyptians playing Senet, people have been playing against each other and with each other. Kinetik is being marketed as a tactical RPG shooter from the talents of the folks that brought Everquest and H1Z1 to life. Hero Machine Studios is a new independent company built from these developers who are looking to bring their newes...[Read More]
This year being my first at E3, I sought to find a definition for the experience. After some thought, I realize it’s about the discovery of gems. Those games you weren’t expecting to see but leave a mark long after the expo doors close. For me, this is one of those games. Majesco’s Nano Assault was, surprisingly, among my favorite games of E3.
