The 9 dodgiest religions in games

Ah, religion. I know this is a topic we all have trouble agreeing on. But fear not, humble practitioner of a good pray, I am not here to squint angrily at your favourite book of life advice. I’m only here for the videogame religions. The ones that are very, very, very, very bad. You know, the gun-loving cults and the xenophobic people-burners. The (mostly) fictional…

Feature: Don't leave the blankets until spring!

Stay comfy: games you can play with a hot mug in one hand

Winter brings out a part of me that immediately seeks a mountain of blankets in which to burrow. Even in my seasonally confused state of Texas, the weather has tended towards the chilly and left me with little excuse not to have a kettle boiling interminably as I layer on socks and pull the biggest comforter from the top of the closet. But this presents…

Watch me slay Slay The Spire’s slimes as the Watcher

The Watcher is the best thing to hit Slay The Spire since sliced fungi beast. She's the new character currently lurking on the beta branch: a monk for whom deck balance is unprecedentedly essential. She's all about flowing in and out of different stances, dishing out unseemly damage, but then taking unseemly damage if you can't play a card that stops her being so angry.…

Slay The Spire’s next character is a badass monk

Oh no. It's happening again. Slay The Spire has released a new character on the beta branch, and I'm once more betwixt its jaws. She's still being tested and won't appear in the main game for a while, but let me introduce you to the Watcher. She's a monk who flows between "stances". Calm, one moment, a hurricane of double damage the next - albeit…

Slay The Spire’s fourth character will be free

A fourth playable character is coming to Slay The Spire for free, developers MegaCrit Games announced today. They've muttered before about the possibility of adding more dungeoneers, and confirmed it today while also blasting the first update since their delightful deck-building dungeon-crawler left early access in January. My favourite Spireslayer is the Defect, the character which Mega Crit added long after the first two -…

Best Slay The Spire mods

While I can't claim to have sunk hundreds of hours into it like Alec, I've still lost entire evenings to Slay The Spire's deck-building. If you're one of those people who regularly finishes it, it might be time to change things up a little. The game already has an active modding scene, and while it's just a small collection, here's a bundle of minor mods…

Slay The Spire’s Jungle mod adds a whole new act (with lions and spiders)

The newly v1.0 Slay The Spire, wot I called "a miracle of design" in our Slay The Spire review earlier this week, is just the start of the story. The mod scene hit the ground running when support launched last month, with the highlights being an impressive selection of new playable characters and the truly joyful Marty Feldman mode. Now we can add a whole…

Slay The Spire 1.0 out now, with a higher price – and new content planned

Yes, I'm trying to retroactively validate playing Slay The Spire for almost 200 hours - and all too often while I was supposed to be working on other games - by continually posting about it now. Here's my Slay The Spire review, here are some delightful Slay The Spire character mods and here is the best mod of all time, for anything ever. And this…

Slay The Spire review

It’s not often I get to play a game for 187 hours before reviewing it. Hell, it's not often I play a game for 187 hours. Deck-building, singleplayer roguelite Slay The Spire, which gets a full release today after just over a year in early access, has me on its hook. Traditionally, I look at a number like that and hate myself – so much…

5 of the best Slay The Spire character mods

"With more planned." For months, that's all we've had to go on, when it comes to the nagging question of whether or not the wonderful Slay The Spire will ever stretch beyond its three playable characters. Third character The Defect's relatively new, and the focus is currently on spit'n'polish for this week's escape from early access, so I'm not holding my breath for an official…

PSA: Slay The Spire gets a full release this week, buy now if you want the cheaper price

Wednesday, January 23 2019 will be a day remembered in infamy. The day that the human race committed, inexorably, to self-destruction. The day that cardsy-roguey titan Slay The Spire left early access and got itself a full release. Such a lovely game, such a lovely game. You can check it out any time you like, but you can never Save & Quit. And so I…

Slay The Spire dooms us all by adding official mod support

Oh, great. The very last thing I needed was another reason to play Slay The Spire every day for the rest of my life, forever and ever and ever and ever. On the other hand, perhaps I can finally fulfil my dream of replacing The Time Eater with a GIF of Jareth the Goblin King, which I've just decided I've wanted since the day I…
