The 14 Best Metroidvania Games On PC

The Metroidvania is perhaps one of the more tricky genres to nail down. With its very name coming from an amalgamation of two actually quite different Nintendo-based game series - Metroid and Castlevania - quite what qualifies is always up for debate. Hence, we suspect this could be one of the more controversial lists, when it leaves out a favourite game that someone else might…

The History Of Overwatch’s Hero Abilities

Developers imitate each other, as do writers, musicians and artists, and Blizzard are the best in the business at it. No other company is so good at distilling the sweat of another’s brow and refining it into pure, unadulterated joy. Yet, while it’s easy to see in Overwatch the objective-based gameplay of Team Fortress 2, the team dynamics of League of Legends or the creative…

Centipedal Force: Strider

I just dodged the biggest bullet of my professional career. The greatest hazard of this job isn't furious comments or frustrated developers - far from it - the true terror lies in the weird crap I find myself typing into Google. There's a new Strider game coming out early next year and when I decided to post the trailer, I figured I'd reminisce about the…

Oh, Hurrah: Capcom’s Strider Revival Getting PC Version

No, not Aragorn from Lord of the Rings. No, not the Half-Life 2 spindle horror colossus. No, not the giant mecha thing from Stanisław Lem's Fiasco. No, not the tiny bicycle brand. No, not the pony named after Aragorn from Lord of the Rings. This Strider is an ultra-ninja from a future that (sadly) never will be. He battles the Cybersoviet Union's robot legion in…
