Street Fighter X Tekken Mobile Review

Sep 24, 2012

Fighting games are slowly moving into their own on mobile devices, and it’s all a great deal because of the work Capcom has done. They began with Street Fighter IV, upped the ante with the fantastic Street Fighter IV: Volt, and have had a hard time topping the formula since. And with good reason: Volt does everything a mobile fighting game needs, from controls to multiplayer. With the new Street Fighter X Tekken Mobile, we had our fingers crossed that we’d see that Volt magic one more time.

Little Masters Review

Sep 13, 2012

It seems that the longer Nintendo refuses to port a Pokémon game to iOS, the closer other companies are getting to finally bringing a successful monster capture franchise to the world’s most popular pocket devices – mobile platforms. Facebook’s Outernauts was the first game I’ve played to truly feel like a genuine monster capture game that worked, but I’ve still been hard-pressed to find a quality mobile experience.

SpyParty Preview

Sep 9, 2012

Do you wish that you were a spy? And no, we’re not talking about the near-superhero qualities of the indestructible trigger-happy madman known by the agent number 007. We’re talking real spies: social sleuths that are so cunning with their skills that they wear fake identities like a skin suit. In SpyParty, you’ll be using your conversational wits to create an international mission while not being caught.

Harold Preview

Sep 7, 2012

We’ve all had this happen to us before: you’re watching a friend (or even a stranger) play videogames, and they’re flat-out terrible. It’s almost painful watching them die over and over again to a simple obstacle. You want to call out to them to just hand you the controller and let you make the decisions for them, but you don’t want to be rude. Luckily, in Moon Spider Studio’s Harold, redirecting a terrible player is your sole job.

Neverwinter lead Andy Velaskez talks the importance of player-created content [interview]

Sep 6, 2012

PC

The Neverwinter name is over 20 years old, and has become a longtime piece of canonical history in the Dungeons & Dragons universe. The lands have been long regarded by fantasy fans for its excellent role-playing history, specifically across the classic Neverwinter on AOL and Neverwinter Nights series’. In the latter content creation played a big part for most players, and when word came out that Neverwinter would be seeing release in the form of a free-to-play MMO, fans were worried that this major aspect of creation would remain untouched.

Super House of Dead Ninjas Review

Aug 21, 2012

Adult Swim Games is responsible for a wide collection of memorable games on the web, including Robot Unicorn AttackHemp Tycoon, and House of Dead Ninjas. I wouldn’t call any of these games masterpieces, but they’re each quirky and addictive in their own special way. However, with Adult Swim’s new sequel to the latter title, Super House of Dead Ninjas, I’ve had to seriously consider what a web game from Adult Swim is capable of delivering.

Warhammer Quest Preview

Aug 21, 2012

If you’re into fantasy, it’s nearly guaranteed that you’ve run into the Warhammer universe at some point or another. The highly-regarded fantasy setting  has permeated through tabletop and electronics games of several forms as far back as the 1980s. But along those years, there’s one place Warhammer has yet to extend its reach: mobile devices. Until now.
