With the game due for release within the next month, not counting potential further delays, I’m going to keep this preview short and to the point, mostly just tackling the skirmish mode so that when I go to review the full game I’ll still have plenty to talk about. Currently if you buy the game you’ll get access to the ongoing beta that should hopefully result in the game being reasonably balanced in time for launch.

The point is the game is essentially on sale now, and that means people deserve to know if it’s any good.
Robinson Crusoe is the kind of game that scares people away with its collection of tokens and cards and tiles that contribute to a tabletop experience that’s actually quite easy to understand once everything clicks.

Eurogamer recently held a short and interesting interview with a member of DICE regarding their forthcoming Star Wars: Battlefront title. The interview wasn’t interesting because of how much information was revealed, though, but rather because of how evasive and completely generic it was. After fending off a question […]

For all the praise heaped upon Steam over the years many people seem to blatantly ignore how crap its attitude toward customers could be. Not only is there no quality control on Steam, allowing games that don’t even work to get released, but attempting to get a refund […]
