To his surprise, he was chosen in a lottery to attend Hope's Peak Academy - a school that is only reserved for top students from every field imaginable. The school is enamored by hundreds of years of tradition, sending the 'cream of the crop' into the work force every year. The students that graduate from Hope... more.

Ubisoft’s latest release in the Might & Magic series takes an old-school approach to role-playing games. Designed to resemble the original games from back in the day, Might & Magic X Legacy is a truly brilliant and nostalgic role-playing experience. And while it replicates its classic predecessors, Legacy still uses a modern 3D engine and includes features that are still available in som... more.

Darkout offers a fresh, new approach to an overused concept - it’s an open-ended, sandbox-style survival game. You must harvest resources that will help you craft and survive, among other things. Darkout is far from being an easy game - you have crash landed on a rogue planet in the middle of nowhere, with only a few basic items to help you survive. With so many games like Darkout springing... more.

The third release in MonkeyPawGames' 'Retro Rush' campaign is an obscure PSOne title that's actually a sequel to a Super Famicom game.

In this day and age of action-packed "in your face" games, it's not often I come across a different kind of puzzler that I can take a breather with, giving my trigger finger reflexes a rest -- not to mention easily kill time away (which came in very handy while I was laid up sick for awhile, shortly after the hustle and bustle of the holiday season). The fine folks at King Art Games excellently... more.

Released on the PC in 2011, Terraria is an open sandbox platformer that places you into a 2D pixelated world where you dig, build, explore and survive. Since its initial release, Terraria has been referred to by many as a 2D Minecraft, and for good reason - to survive, you must dig a lot of dirt, chop down countless trees, and battle hordes of nasty monsters. You are also required to build a shelt... more.

Dominions 4 takes a unique approach to the 4x strategy genre. It involves bringing forth your Pretender, which is much similar to a god or demigod. You also need to have an enormous army to accompany your false prophet to help spread his word. As you conquer the neighboring provinces and continue to build your army, word will spread throughout the land about your Pretender. By building shrines ... more.

I've always been more of the world championship winning, monster slashing kind of gamer. But with that being said, I set aside my "win championships and monster battles, not wars" mentality and gave Air Conflicts: Vietnam by Games Farm and bitComposer Entertainment A.G. a valiant try -- a try that proved to be somewhat disappointing. AC: V is an arcade flight game that is set in the Vietnam Er... more.
