Only a handful of titles are available at the moment including Solitaire HD, ... Read More »

Full of observational humour and one-liners; voiced by the likes of Elijah Wood, Jack Black and even Wil Wheaton, with a whimsical storyline to accompany them, Broken Age tells the ... Read More »

What do you get if you throw some classic titles into a blender, pour it out and put some dressing on it? Taking obvious inspiration from titles such as Another World, Abe's Odyssey and Inside, Sand Sailor Studios has your mind ticking amongst this noir platform-puzzler, Black the Fall, but is the story as gripping as said classics and how do the puzzles fare? Black the Fall sees you playing as a machinist trying to escape the clutches of a communist regime; one could say a Mudokon escaping Rupture Farms if we were to compare to Abe's Odyssey - given ...

The second-in-command to Final Fantasy for being one of the most anticipated sequels, let alone the length of time it takes to develop is the Kingdom Hearts saga.

Last night saw the annual Square Enix live show in which they dish out tasty teasers and information about their upcoming titles and plans.

Unbeknownst to us, BioWare has been working on the new action-RPG IP Anthem for five years, according to Aaron Flynn, general manager of BioWare. In an interview with CBC Radio, he spoke purely about the development of the game and some other tidbits that some may be confused about: So the mechanics are, there are shooting mechanics in it, it's an action game, it's a roleplaying game, it's got a lot of those elements to it that let you just become a character and participate in this. It's co-operative, so it's our first game in a long time that you're ... Read More »
