Feature: Scourgebring it on

ScourgeBringer review

Comparisons to Dead Cells might come easily, but platforming slash 'n' dash ScourgeBringer feels less like a modernised Castlevania and more like an answer to the question: “What if Samurai Gunn had a single player story mode?” This is a question that nobody, save the developers of this gun-toting room clearer, seems to have asked. We should be ashamed of ourselves.

Feature: Off the hook

Have You Played… A Normal Lost Phone?

Have you ever found a lost phone? If you're not a complete wrong 'un your first instinct was likely to find some way to reunite it with it's owner. But there's another urge, bubbling away just under the surface of your otherwise squeaky clean sense of morality. It's okay, you can admit it: You sort of wanted to take a peek. It's only natural.

The Dungeon Of Naheulbeuk review

In the classic opening move for the type of review some of you might typify as "the classic 7/10", I'll say this: I liked The Dungeon Of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet Of Chaos far more than I expected to. It's XCOM by way of Order Of The Stick, but with the battles connected by wandering about in the ‘gather your party and venture forth’ tradition of…

Scourgebringer slashes and dashes out of early access next month

Oh, we didn't forget about you, Scourgebringer. After seven months of hacking and slashing and gravity-defying leaps in the bowels of an otherworldly labyrinth, Khyra is aiming her sword straight at an October release date. This week's new trailer may claim "the ordeal is coming to an end", but I reckon the bloodshed is just waiting to be cranked into full gear.

Four whole sexy games made Steam’s top new releases in February

Right out of the oven, here are the hottest new games on Steam from February and boy they are hot indeed. Put those games on the cooling rack and open a window, will you? Games with "sexual content," (in the parlance of professional business speak) do occasionally crack the list of top selling new games but four is quite a feat. There are other trends…

Feature: Hit me with your rhythm stick

Have You Played… Old School Musical?

I didn't expect to be taken on a NES-fuelled fever dream when I first started playing Old School Musical, but this retro-infused rhythm game ended up being one surprise after another. A love letter to the pixel classics of the 8 and 16-bit eras, Old School Musical follows the tale of white square Tib and his younger, taller brother, Rob, as they fight to save…

ScourgeBringer is your next roguelite crush

ScourgeBringer is a game that exists in your fingers. It's an action roguelite fidgetspinner about bish-bash-boshing across single screen levels of enemies. The protagonist Kyhra has a sword for slashing, a drone that can fire a blast of bullets, and a set of movements that feel sublime to control. I've been playing an early alpha ahead of an early access release planned for later this…

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…

Recompile digitises the Metroidvania genre next year

Still screenshots don't do upcoming 3D metroidvania Recompile much justice. You might get a feel for the scale of the Tron-like virtual world developers Phigames have built, but it can't convey the mad, wibbly glitch effects that fade as the world reassembles itself, Bastion-style. It's hard to even get a handle on what its protagonist looks like in stills - a humanoid form made from…
