There are lots of gaming items out there that are simply gimmicks; however, that’s not the case with Shovel Knight: Official Design Works!
Several years ago, I was tasked with trawling forums to find interesting projects to bring to light. One of those projects was Ama’s Lullaby, an adventure RPG with turn-based combat that was in the very early stages of development. Not long after, developer Marc Chevallereau of Mercy Ground Creations decided to take the game in a different direction, but you can view the previous version her...[Read More]
It’s that time again! Here’s our awesome list of PAX East 2017 Parties and events this week! As you can guess, this list will be ever-changing and we’ll do our best to keep it as up-to-date as possible. You’ll see our friends at SideQuesting doing the same on their own PAX East Party Page, and we want to give our thanks to the Facebook PAX East Parties group for keeping us ...[Read More]
Greetings Backloggers! I guess I didn’t learn my lesson from Super Thunder Blade, because up next on the list was another SEGA classic: Bio-Hazard Battle.
Greetings Backloggers! I hope everyone had a good holiday season. My backlog may have taken a bit of a wrong turn thanks to the Steam Sale, but it’s a new year, and a new chance to get on track. I’m not much for official New Year’s Resolutions, since those are far too often derailed almost before they’re begun, but I do believe in building on success, or at the very least, working on improving whe...[Read More]
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. Instead, I set out with a plan to knock out a seemingly easy SEGA classic that’s been in my backlog in one form or another since picking up Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection for my PS3 back in 2009.
Yesterday, EA announced a new partnership between Real Racing 3, their award-winning mobile racing franchise developed by Firemonkeys Studio, and the FIA Formula E Championship.
I recently had the opportunity to sample Can’t Drive This, a new cooperative arcade racing game from Pixel Maniacs. Can’t Drive This differentiates itself from other arcade racers by requiring two players to work together. While Player One drives a car in a standard 3rd-person viewpoint, Player Two utilizes a top-down view to lay down the track ahead of their comrade. It’s dynamic, fast-paced, and...[Read More]
At TwitchCon 2016, Team17 and Mouldy Toof officially announced the upcoming release of The Escapists 2, the sequel to the 2015 hit game The Escapists, by releasing their official reveal trailer.
Thunder Lotus Games released Jotun almost exactly one year ago, and its hand-drawn animation, bad-ass female Viking protagonist, and deep attention to Norse mythology gained them a solid fan base from the Kickstarter to the current Valhalla Edition. Now they’re back with the highly-anticipated sophomore effort, entitled Sundered. This announcement comes just before TwitchCon 2016, where thou...[Read More]
On September 12, Steam shook things up again in the store in an attempt to address “scam” reviews that have been clogging up the pipeline and providing what are considered fraudulent review scores for video games.
Here at Marooners’ Rock, we’ve already shown everyone the latest hands-on preview for The Metronomicon, a highly-anticipated rhythm RPG from Puuba and Kasedo Games. We’ve known for a while that the release date is sometime in September, but it’s finally been set in stone: September 29.
