Ruiner’s first patch makes cyber-life a little less ruinous

Grungy cyberpunk hack n' slasher Ruiner [official site] was well-received at launch, but developers Reikon Games are still tweaking and tuning it behind the scenes. They've just rolled out the game's first major patch (full notes here) since launch, with an emphasis on smoothing out some kinks in the difficulty curve, and making bullets the deadly people-killing projectiles they're meant to be, as opposed to a poor man's melee substitute.

Ruiner: Watch 15 Minutes Of Cyberpunk Slash-O-Shoots

Mate, I've got blue hair and was wearing a leather jacket while I wrote that post (it was cold, okay). But can Ruiner accomplish what I cannot: have both style and substance? Have a gander at fifteen…

Cyberpunk Shooter Ruiner Looks Pretty Dang Swish

Ruiner [official site] looks like the perfect game for the monstrous self-parody I affect for professional purposes. A top-down shooter with someone in a leather jacket roaming around a cyberpunk city where an incidental NPC with neon hair shaved at the sides says "every revolution has its haircut, man"? That's me, man. This game is for me. Reikon Games have been muttering about Ruiner for…
