Dillon's Rolling Western Review

Rollin', rollin', rollin', rawhide!

When I first started playing Dillon's Rolling Western, I was pleasantly delighted. Delivering several different gaming ideas into one neat, stylistic experience, Rolling Western didn't offer anything new all to itself, but initially, it provided a nice mix of exploration and real-time battles with some light tower defense mixed in.

Rise of the Martian Bear Review

What has a bear, a beard, two-legged mechs, and flies? Iron Brigade: Rise of the Martian Bear.

Last year, I praised and criticized Double Fine's Trenched before it received a new name. My verdict? It played and worked well, but didn't offer enough variety and versatility to last as long as a proper tower defense game should. Fortunately, Rise of the Martian Bear provides a lot of content, weapons, and towers that resolve many of the issues the original Iron Brigade faced.

Quarrel Review

An addictive word/turn-based strategy game that everyone can enjoy. Now go buy it so we can play!

It is a total shame when not enough people are playing a game like Quarrel, a unique mashup of Scrabble and the strategy genre. I have some small hope that word of mouth and internet buzz will make more and more people shell out the five smackers to try it out, and I need your help.  If you just give the game a chance, you’ll find that it’s enjoyable from the outset and becomes addictive as you dig in for some intense wars with words.

Bioware Working on Command & Conquer Generals 2

Bioware's latest is certainly a departure, but nothing along the lines of a new Uncharted-like game.

It appears we can put two rumors to bed. Command & Conquer Generals 2 is officially coming and it's also Bioware's brand new project - a departure from their typical RPG work. Not much else is known about the game right now, but more information is likely on the way in the upcoming week.

Might & Magic Heroes VI Review

An epic game with epic bugs

The creation of the sixth installment of the Heroes of Might & Magic series sent the small turn-based RPG gamer niche through various emotional highs and lows. The two biggest sources of concern was the renaming of the brand to Might & Magic Heroes (which made many think back to the failed 3DO series), plus the “dumbing down” of the unit tiers from the almost double digit tiers to just three. It seemed that the things that made it great would be forsaken in pursuit of the lucrative mainstream market.

Syndicate Preview

Syndicate stays true to its roots while adapting to the future.

When EA outed Syndicate early this year it was met with a fair amount of criticism.  Critics specifically belabored the fact that the reboot was taking the beloved isometric action-adventure-strategy game and molding it into a “visceral first person shooter.” In a video game landscape where the FPS is king the move makes sense, but that doesn’t mean that longstanding fans are going to be understanding of the change.  So it is perhaps with an olive branch extended that publisher EA has revealed that the new Syndicate will contain a robust four-player cooperative campaign to go along with the single-player experience.
