Cthulhu: Call of Madness

Another day, another obtuse Focus Home trailer for me to lose my shit over. This time they're teasing us with the mind bending realities of the Call of Cthulhu, with a strong emphasis on the real threat of the Elder Gods. No, silly boy, not violent dismemberment, or grizzly evisceration. You think in such simplistic…

XCOM 2’s Long War Mod: Better, Stronger, Longer

The word “Mod” is shorthand for some minor “modification,” but it really doesn’t do justice to XCOM 2’s Long War 2 mod. Stormtrooper helmets and new haircuts are good and dandy, but Long War 2 is more like a community-made DLC package for die-hard fans. Long War 2 adds new weapons, classes, skills, and missions, and…

Imperium Galactica I & II Remastered

It’s been a mere eighteen years since Imperium Galactica 2 was released, but in the current resurgence for all things 4X, it was only a matter of time before someone revisited these classics.

The Walking Dead: A New Frontier – Ties That Bind – Part…

Actually released on the same day as the previous episode, and even sharing a part 1/part 2 title scheme. Conventional wisdom would seem to suggest treating Ties That Bind as a singular entity. However, though there are certainly a great many elements holding both together, they are still clearly distinct entities that, like any episodic…

Beautiful Desolution Kickstarts Soon

Mysterious trailers have popped up recently to tease a new game from the people behind STASIS. The clips feature lovingly rendered views of a post-apocalyptic world, home to flora and fauna just a little bit different to how we know them here on Earth. Like the developer’s previous work, the game features an isometric view, but…

Cyber-Punk Squad Based RTS M.E.R.C. Now Available on Steam

If you are into cyberpunk settings and squad based combat, then you are in luck. M.E.R.C. is a squad based, real time strategy game set in a cyber punk dystopian world. The visuals remind me of Syndicate (old school RTS one, not the horrible bloom blinding overload FPS from EA) or Satellite Reign. It has launched…
