E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

No awful minigames like in summer - this sale's twist is a virtual advent calendar here, where you can click a door each day for a handful of Steam wallpapers, chat emoticons and holiday-themed fluff. Beyond that, users can cast their vote on the…

Feature: Yo dawg, I heard you like RPGs...

CrossCode review

Satirical website Hard Drive once ran a story which poked fun at the long, drawn-out nature of most RPGs. In a hard-hitting investigative report, one player was commended for finally “getting to the good shit” at the 117-hour mark of a fictional game, while his roommate scoffed at him for only making it mid-way through the game. Like most RPGs, CrossCode is an immense and…

Action RPG CrossCode levels up out of early access September 20th

I reckon that CrossCode is quietly one of the more exciting things lurking around in Steam's early access section right now. It's a fast-paced action RPG in the vein of Terranigma or Secret Of Mana, set in a pseudo-virtual world that reminds me of Phantasy Star Online. Initially demoed and crowdfunded back in February 2015, with plans to launch at the start of 2016.  Obviously that…

CrossCode’s Update Expands On Its Best Part: The Story

CrossCode [official site] is a Japanese-inspired action RPG about hurling great big balls of energy to kill enemies in a fictional MMORPG. CrossCode deftly blends a lot of different retro-ish inspirations and looks great doing it. Our resident Lord of the Dance, Marsh Davies, thought so when he waltzed through its world, noting that the game-within-a-game narrative was a "surprisingly multilayered fiction, which, despite the…

Premature Evaluation: CrossCode

Each week Marsh Davies jacks into the virtual battleground that is Early Access so that his spandex-clad avatar may wrestle with the digital monstrosities therein. This week he’s uploaded himself into CrossCode, a top down 16-bit-styled singleplayer ARPG set within a distant future MMO, where the boundaries between the real and virtual worlds have blurred. It is a strange vision of the future in which…

Game Within A Game Within An IndieGoGo: CrossCode

"I've heard of CrossCode [official site] somewhere on here before!" you scream in fury at me, because you've just discovered you can pronounce square brackets and it's freaking you out. Yes, Graham spoke of it in the dearly departed DevLog Watch almost a year ago when the demo I've been playing was far less robust. It's about a futuristic MMO which is based on an entire…

Feature: My Log Saw Something That Night

DevLog Watch: Kaiju Panic, Somewhere, CrossCode, More

When I was first following along with videogames on the internet, there were these things called .plan files. They were essentially blogs, or Twitter before Twitter, but they were updated by game developers like John Carmack, Cliff Bleszinski, Randy Pitchford and more before everyone grew too busy, too old, or too ensconced in the PR machine to speak so openly and frequently. They were great,…
