If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Little Orbit’s Falling Skies: The Game hits the nail on the head. Billing itself as a squad-based strategy title, the design and gameplay feel very reminiscent of a similar award-winning title where humans battle against an alien horde. Though not as strong as other titles of the same vein, Falling Skies does bring a few unique angles to the board. F...[Read More]

More from C2E2: Marvel Puzzle Quest: Dark Regin

While at C2E2 this past weekend, I wasn’t just talking about action figures and ogling Spandex-clad gentlemen. While this convention is mostly about comics, there are usually some games on display there as well. I got to chat with some of the team from D3 Publisher, which is the company that brought us one of my favorite Nintendo DS games ever: Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords. They w...[Read More]

Review: TowerFall Ascension (PC)

Review: TowerFall Ascension (PC)

Over the years, I’ve bemoaned the disappearance of local multiplayer in video games. Most of this was due to the fact that my household only had one Xbox 360, but two heavy gamers. This resulted in either one person sitting to the side for a indeterminate period of time, or both people playing from a limited library of entertaining local multiplayer titles. Last year, at IndieCade, I had an ...[Read More]

Review: The Banner Saga (Steam via PC, Mac, Linux)

The chill of winter’s bite digs deep into your bones. The snow is thick and covered in blood. The drums of battle sound in a rhythmic pace. Looking from side to side you see your brothers in arms breathing heavily, their breath visible in the cold northern air. Enemies surround you, yet you can tell they are nervous; more so than you. With a battle cry you and your brothers rush in, shield bearers...[Read More]

Review: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (PC)

Review: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (PC)

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance was easily one of my favorite games of 2013. I had the pleasure of reviewing it on the Xbox 360 platform, and found myself, for the first time, truly loving a Metal Gear game. A lot of this may have been due to Platinum Games having their hands in on the game’s development, of course. If you’ve been paying any attention, I often praise Platinum Games to a...[Read More]

Review: Sanctum 2 (XBLA)

Review: Sanctum 2 (XBLA)

When it comes to games I’m always on the lookout for a one that may or may not kick my ass as I play it. One game I’ve been playing lately has been the game Sanctum 2, which you can find on Xbox Live and Steam. If you have ever wanted a game that was part first person shooter and tower defense, then Sanctum 2 is the game for you! I can state now this is an addicting game to play whether you’re alo...[Read More]

Review: PAYDAY 2 (PC)

Review: PAYDAY 2 (PC)

I don’t really know anyone who dislikes a good heist movie. From classic con jobs like The Sting and the Ocean films to a more direct robbery like Heat, there’s always a great sense of camaraderie, clever calculation, and conflict that draws people in. There have been few attempts to translate this popular genre into video games, but Overkill Software has started to make a name for the...[Read More]

Create Your Saints Row IV Character in the Saints Row IV Inauguration Station

Are you looking forward to creating your character in Saints Row IV? Well you can get started as of today creating your custom character (mine looks like a total bad-ass with pictures to come via my Twitter).  After doing so you’ll be able to import the creation to your game once it has been released. Now you may be asking yourself, where do I go to download said program? First you can simpl...[Read More]

Review: Rise of the Triad (PC)

Review: Rise of the Triad (PC)

There were pros and cons to attending the school where my father taught. The biggest con, of course, was that all of my other teachers knew where to find one of my parents immediately and conveniently. The pros, in my opinion, outweighed the cons. I had an on-site ATM for lunch and vending machine money. I had a ride to and from school every day. Most importantly, my dad was friends with the compu...[Read More]
