Feature: Refreshingly doom-ridden

Steam Charts: Entropy Edition

As time inexorably ticks away, its guttural screaming horror counting down the seconds until our infinite deaths, it's important we remember what really matters: that the game you like best isn't as good as the game I like best. The game you like best, the game you like reading about the most, is indicative of how foolish you are, how you're wasting your precious moments…

Feature: The biggest hits of the past 12 months

These are the top 100 Steam games of 2017

Another year over, a new one just begun, which means, impossibly, even more games. But what about last year? Which were the games that most people were buying and, more importantly, playing? As is now something of a tradition, Valve have let slip a big ol' breakdown of the most successful titles released on Steam over the past twelve months. Below is the full, hundred-strong…

Steam charts: it’s the end of the world

Wotcha gang. Your old chum Alice here for this week's charts, as everyone else has been fired. Out of a cannon. Blown into a jillion little pieces. Hence the Apocalyptic yellow tone to the skies today. Hold your breath when outside, and hold your breath while we count down last week's top ten of the top-selling games on Steam.

The Bestest Best Games Of 2016 So Far

We usually do our enormous GAMES OF THE YEAR posting fest at the end of the year (as would seem logical) but because it seems silly to reserve praise for special occasions we're doing a Games Of The Half Year collection to tell you about everything we've loved playing so far. It can double as a summer holiday recommendations list too! We've listed ours in…

Feature: I hope the sequel's called Cheerful Dusk

Impressions: Grim Dawn

Lots of grim, not too much dawn so far. Which is a shame. Dawn's so pretty. Might lift the spirits after all that zombie-twatting in the gloom. Still, that is what we've signed up for: Grim Dawn, an action RPG created by much of the team (and the tech) behind Titan Quest, is here to be our alt-universe Diablo III. No fancy business models (other…

Feature: Interrogating Crate's Arthur Bruno

Crate Expectations: On Grim Dawn’s $500k Kickstarter

Having read our previous interview with Crate's Arthur Bruno - a crucial portion of which he has reposted on the Grim Dawn site as a sort of manifesto - I wanted to catch up with him and to talk about how the indie ARPG was looking after its half million dollar Kickstarter success. Read on for a discussion of the challenges of Kickstarting, and some…

Feature: Give And You Shall Receive

Kickstarter Katchup

This makes sense as a thing to do. With so many gaming Kickstarters running, for games we're genuinely interested to play, let's have a look to see where they all are this weekend. The headline news is that Grim Dawn has finished its run, with just shy of double its target reached. Below you can catch up on Moebius, Xenonauts, Tex Murphy, and many more.…

Life After Diablo: Grim Dawn Soldier Trailer

You waited more than a decade. Diablo III's finally out. You can even play it when the server gods smile upon you. And it's fun! But it won't last forever. Randomly generated or not, you and the big red Lord of Destruction (no, not that one) will eventually grow apart. And then what happens? What do you hack? Whom do you slash? Where do you…

The Sun Has Got His Moneyhat On: Grim Dawn Funded

Forget the rest of the loot-gathering crowd for a moment and concentrate your senses on the other ARPG. The one that isn't a sequel but does see much-loved developers working in a genre where they have excelled in the past, the one with non-linear story progression and different factions to side with. Yes, it's this one, Grim Dawn from the designers of Titan Quest. Although…

Here Comes The Sun: Grim Dawn Kickstarter

I wasn't sure what the polite level of enthusiasm for action-RPG Grim Dawn was but as it turns out it's perfectly acceptable to perform a small dance while saying "it appears to combine the best of the developers previous game, Titan Quest, with a pleasingly unpleasant new world to discover and factions with which to side and war". Alternatively, just holler wildly and punch the…

Two Hundred And Sixty-Five Seconds Of Grim Dawn

Diablo III's landing in May might have made the biggest tremors in the release schedule, but there's still every reason to keep an eye on the beautiful, sinister dungeon-crawler, Grim Dawn. I tell you, after this interview, there are few games I am looking forward to as much. The latest trailer shows the Occultist class in action. It's looking more intense than I'd imagined, and…

Titanic Quest: Crate Speak About Grim Dawn

Crate Entertainment, an indie development studio born out of the ashes of Titan Quest creators Iron Lore, have been working on their first major project for a while now. Grim Dawn, built using the tech behind Titan Quest, will hopefully be entering alpha at some point this year, and it's a game we're extremely excited to see. So we caught up with Crate's core man,…

Crate News! Grim Dawn Reveals Combat

I think Titan Quest is one of the most underrated action RPGs (as we all now so politely call Diablo clones), so it's with a happy face that I see new news of the team's new game, Grim Dawn. From Crate Entertainment - the company formed by many of the former Iron Lore gang - comes some pre-alpha footage, as spotted by PCG. You can…

Crate Expectations: Grim Dawn

One Mr Azri reminds me of the existence of Grim Dawn. It's being created by veterans of the sadly missed Iron Lore - who you'll remember from Titan Quest. Last time I checked there was no images, but there's a mass of early Alpha shots to nose at now, as well as talk about its features such as destructible scenery, building characters from five skill-classes…
