The week before E3 is usually a dull one in terms of videogame releases. Still, there are few games that you should keep an eye on. Capcom’s Remember Me has been getting some buzz. This stealth-action game takes place in a futuristic version of Paris and uses some interesting sci-fi concepts. If you’ve missed out on Skyrim then you should consider picking up The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Legendary Edition, which has all the bells and whistles. Lastly, Marvel Heroes launches this week. As a comic-book nerd, I’m intrigued … continued
Double Fine is going to the Kickstarter well once again for a turn-based strategy game called Massive Chalice. The game uses tactical-RPG gameplay in a sword-and-sorcery setting. The Kickstarter rewards include a t-shirt, a poster, your very own in-game house name, participation in a brainstorming session at Double Fine HQ, and more. As of this writing, the Double Fine is on the cusp of reaching its $725,000 goal with 24 days to go. Check out an excerpt from the official description, as well as the pitch video below… continued
As most of you know, I’ve been spending the last few weeks playing The Moving Game, which is something you need to play every now and then, but also utter crap. Thankfully, I’m done with that…experience. Now I’m playing the slightly better Unpacking Game. To keep myself somewhat sane, I’ve shoved all the non-essential boxes into the closet of my home office/filming space. Of course there will be a lovely surprise when I discover that an important box is tucked away in the corner and I have to … continued
My consoles are all packed up, waiting for the (three-block) journey to their new home. That means it’ll be an iOS gaming weekend for me. First up is Wizard Ops Tactics. A pal at Autodesk brought this game to my attention and I’m super happy that she did. The game is a tactical RPG with combat that’s similar to Final Fantasy Tactics (my all-time favorite) and Ogre Battle. Nerd combat on isometric grids is totally my thing. As I mentioned earlier in the week, my friend Scott Foe … continued
Okay. My heel pain has been downgraded to heel soreness. That nasty surprise attack from food poisoning has been vanquished. I still have some remnants of a cold, but it’s not as bad as it was earlier in the week. That means it’s time to play Packing II! Yeah, moving a few weeks before E3 2013…isn’t the best, but it’s time to leave lovely Wilshire Vermont Station and the silly rent hikes. Despite my weakened condition, I’ve managed to get a lot done. Most of my games and CDs … continued
Here’s an interview with Reverb Publishing executive producer Ted Lange on Sanctum 2. The game was developed by Coffee Stain Studios for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. It combines tower-defense strategy and first-person shooter action. Lange talks about improvements made over the original Steam-only game, the different types of levels, the various characters and classes, and more. Check out the interview and let me know if Sanctum 2 is something that interests you!
On a side note, I think this is the first videogame interview I’ve done that … continued

Rihanna, the undisputed queen of pop, has set her sights on getting a leg up in hardcore gaming with Razer’s best-in-class Naga Hex Wraith Red edition gaming mouse. The pop songstress was spotted picking up the hardcore gaming mouse with her younger brother in a NYC BestBuy over the weekend.
Being the inventive lot that you are, I know you guys … continued
This weekend, I’ll be playing two games that are incompatible with each other. First up is one of the worst games of all time – The Packing Game. As some of you know, I’m moving at the end of the month. In order to save some cash, I’m going to try to pack as many boxes as possible. (I’ll let the professionals handle the kitchen and furniture though.) My apartment currently looks like one of the ugliest games of fort ever played…or maybe part of a level in a … continued
The latest Humble Bundle features Double Fine games Costume Quest, Psychonauts, and Stacking. If you pay above the average price (currently $7.90), Brutal Legend is added to the mix. There are additional rewards at the $35 and $70 levels. If you’ve missed out on these great Double Fine games then this is a fantastic opportunity to give them a whirl, support an excellent developer, and contribute to a charity.
For those of you not familiar with Humble Bundle, DRM-free games are offered on a pay-what-you-want basis. Most … continued
In case you’ve been living under a rock (a common occurrence in the Dagobah System), The Walt Disney Company and EA have entered into a multi-year licensing agreement that allows the latter to publish Star Wars games. BioWare, DICE, and Visceral will be the EA studios handling the upcoming games. It’s been lots of fun reading and listening to reactions on the deal. Some of them are just…crazy. Some people are acting like Disney handed over the rights to Star Wars to a legion of baby seal killers that hunt whales and burn down rain forests on the side…more
