Imagine Populous’ slices of land, rolling hills, water and trees and stuff. Cool, now imagine that but with Proteus’ “for it’s own sake ’cause it’s fun and pretty” attitude. That’s a pretty good idea of what it’s like to play Biome. You may know what biomes are from Minecraft a... Read More »

Wolfenstein: The New Order Preview – Engage Stealth Mode

During Eurogamer Expo last year, I queued up to play a game named Wolfenstein: The New Order.

TheIndieJar: Assault Android Cactus – Early Access Preview

If you were to talk to me back in 2008 and tell me that in 2014 there would be a twin-stick shooter I was really excited about, I would respond with incredulousness. “GUH, another Geometry Wars ripoff? That’s the only game anyone makes for Xbox Live Arcade anymore!” And after you got done explaining to me that th... Read More »

Wolfenstein: The New Order Preview – Herr to the Empire

In my life there are a few watershed moments that I refer to when talking to people about gaming, such as the first time I gamed online, my first home console, or the jump from standard to HD graphics.

Shadow Warrior Preview

For better or for worse, there has been a big wave of late-80′s to mid-90′s nostalgia sweeping gaming lately.

Disney Infinity Preview

Disney Infinity Preview

I’ve watched a whole bunch of Disney films in my time; growing up with the likes of Peter Pan, Robin Hood (the one with the best soundtrack of all time), and Sleeping Beauty to name a few.

Stepping into an overgrown warehouse, full of rusty barrels, crates and smoke, I knew very little about The Last of Us.
