Slam Bolt Scrappers Preview

Super Smash Bros, Castle Crashers, Tower Defense and Tetris walk into a bar… Hidden off on one of the Indie Alleys of PAX was Fire Hose Games’ Slam Bolt Scrappers, and like so many indie titles SBS packed all its unassuming charm into a fast and furious battle (and a couple of fireman hats). When […]

NeoDefender 2

I wouldn’t buy it if it was free. Sometimes I’m puzzled by a non-puzzling game, and I start to wonder if I am just plain missing something – like the good times. Back to the menu I go to review the details of How to Play; sadly, they do not explain how to enjoy Neo […]

E3 2010: Interview with Perfect World Entertainment

Big thank you to the Perfect World E3 team, and to Product Manager Jon Belliss for taking the time to answer our questions! ZTGD Can you briefly explain the relationship of PWE to PW in China, and the PW game? Perfect World Perfect World Co. Ltd. is our parent company and we work closely with […]

Penny Arcade and Used Games: Legality & Morality

The eternal debate hits home. Full disclosure, I’m a little uncomfortable writing this. I like reading Penny Arcade, I’ve met the people-shaped components that make up the now monolithic P.A., definitely enjoy their company, and frankly, I just plain like getting along with people. Dissonance is upsetting on a fundamental level, especially when it’s made […]

Torchlight II

Did you play Torchlight? No? Then first things first, go play it. Back? Now you can show the proper enthusiasm: I’m going to tell you about Torchlight II. Developed by some of the same folks that worked on a little game called Diablo, you’re going to see a few of the same pleasing similarities – […]

Rage

Please be patient, the world is ending. Go take your favorite post-apocalyptic open world game, pick up the crafted universe of Bioshock, make some smoochy sounds and out comes a beautiful screaming baby – with guns. We’ll name it Rage! At E3 we were taken through two different sections of the game, and both supported […]

Dragon Age 2

More than just another digit. Before getting our hands on the game we were given our Dragon Age 2 lessons. Seated in a room at their booth a fresh batch of gamers were taught the three tenets of the game’s sequel, each of them things from Origins that the team said most needed fixing: story, […]

Brink

Hands-on with Bethesda’s latest. Going into the BRINK demo at PAX I can’t say I entertained more than an idle curiosity in the game. I didn’t even know much about it, really, and this was the first time I got to dive into actual gameplay. The demo opened with an intro video covering the four […]

Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer

While at PAX I got a second chance to visit the most ill-conceived meeting booth of all time – you know, the one next to the Harmonix booth. This time Funcom’s Craig Morrison, Executive Producer, soldiered on to tell me about the Age of Conan expansion, Rise of the Godslayer. Godslayer is set in Khitai, […]

More Zombies?!

Shred the undead with Bob, the bullet delivery system. Do you find yourself in need of more zombies? Has Pocket Monkey Games got the survival shooter for you. In the cunningly titled More Zombies?! you play as Bob, a.k.a. Bullet Delivery Man, the guy who brings the hurt. I like that Bob takes his work […]

Monkeys in Space: Escape to Banana Base Alpha

I got these monkeys on lockdown. With line-drawing as established an app formula as match-3, it’s nice when one comes on the scene that doesn’t make me want to cry from the pain of bland mimicry. The abundantly titled Monkeys in Space: Escape to Banana Base Alpha stays true to the simple hook of path […]

Minigore

Fight the Furries! Cast into a 3D storybook countryside you play as John Gore, heavily armed and ready to do battle against…Furries, no, not the pervy kind, the monster kind. Dark, scary and of varying sizes the snarling Furries come at you from all sides as you help the remarkably square John Gore stem the […]
