Steam Charts: Christmas Miracle Edition

I don't what is this? How many? Are we sure we're in the right charts? This is definitely the Steam Charts, where the mad-brained broken people just buy the same four games over and over and over? Because something is up. People have only bought the same three games over and over!

Feature: *or just as many as we care to mention

Podcast: Every game released in November reviewed very quickly*

 There are too many games. November is over, but it was a big month, and our giant collective digi-trough runneth over with shooters, stabbers and clickers.

This week the pod squad are running…

Feature: Turn-based Stalker, with ducks

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden review

Watch half an hour of Mutant Year Zero’s manimal tactics

A duck, a pig and a human walk into a store. They buy several grenades and a top hat for the duck which gives him +10% to ranged damage. You were expecting a punchline? We've covered a bit of tabletop RPG turned tactical hybrid  Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden before, but previously we only had a CGI teaser trailer and a few screenshots to…

Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden blends genes & genres

So, stop me if you've heard this one: A duck, a boar and a lady walk into a bar... No, it's not a joke, but the set-up for the reveal trailer to Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden, an upcoming post-apocalyptic RPG from The Bearded Ladies Consulting, a small Swedish outfit featuring talent from both Hitman and Payday's development teams, and based on a well-regarded pen &…
