Stationed in the frozen tundra of Saskatchewan, Alientrap Games recently released its stylish platforming shooter, Capsized, suiting up the player as an astronaut crash-landed on an apparently hostile planet. At first look, one would be forgiven for associating it with the likes of Contra, Metal Slug, or even Super Metroid; however, its many thrills and moments of brilliance scratch a different itch than those games or anything like them. After some time is invested into the game, it becomes clear that it is far more unique and skillfully crafted than […]
The Witcher games are dark fantasy games set in a world heavily influenced by European myths and culture and based upon the works of Andrzej Sapkowski who twists classic fairytales into grim, adult stories. Kings rule the land while nobles get fat off the sweat of peasants. To add colour to the world, there are monsters, mages, elves and dwarves. There are also witchers. Witchers are the professional monster hunters of the world. Taken away at a young age, they’re subjected to intense training while their bodies are mutated to […]

Dejobaan Games artist Amy posted a few pieces of concept art for the indie studio’s currently-in-alpha frenetic rhythm/action game on the company’s blog. It’s worth a gander if you’re into game design, especially game design with an emphasis on insane(ly awesome) art direction. You can take a look at the rest here and here. via Dejobaan Games
There are, by and large, two sorts of sequels in the gaming industry: sequels that publishers demand because they are guaranteed hits that will contribute to a company’s bottom line; and sequels that need to be made, that deserve to be developed, because the mechanics, characters, or design of the original game deserve to be fleshed out and appreciated to a degree and scope that the original never allowed for. Portal 2 is the latter, the game that needed to be made, and one that most gamers will want to […]
Game Save Manager does what it says on the tin. It will automatically scan through your save files, back them up, and later on restore them. I would say it’s an essential download for all PC gamers. I’ve only being using it for a short while and have already fallen in love with its feature set.
An EA employee has confirmed to Press X or Die that Valve’s upcoming first-person-puzzle-platformer Portal 2 will be sporting cross-platform co-op between PC and PS3.
Microsoft’s Digital Distribution service and PC game brand recently relaunched as part of Microsoft’s new push into PC gaming. The Games for Windows brand first launched in 2006 alongside Windows Vista, with a download service and client launching in ‘08.

James is at Eurogamer Expo 2010 in London, and while he’s trying to enjoy himself at his first games showcase, he’s also trying to work and get some hands-on time. This is one of several previews of games featured at this year’s event. One of the games that really surprised me at the Eurogamer Expo this weekend was at the Indie Section: a turn based strategy called Frozen Synapse by Mode 7 Games. It’s a squad-style turn-based shooter that’s a bit hard to explain in only a sentence or two […]
James is at Eurogamer Expo 2010 in London, and while he’s trying to enjoy himself at his first games showcase, he’s also trying to work and get some hands-on time. This is one of several previews of games featured at this year’s event. Often enough we’ve seen the term “squad-based shooter” bandied around by production companies and developers alike, but the games just end up being Rambo-style free for all shooters with the only clear objective being to kill whoever’s not on your team. Certain modes in games like Counter-Strike, […]
