I Am Bread Review: … and So Can You! - I Am Bread flopped its way out of Steam Early Access this week and landed flat onto the hot coils of the Steam New Releases page. Is this “bread simulator” the neatest thing since… well, sliced bread? Or is it half-baked? Let’s find out in my I Am Bread review! (Full Disclosure: I was provided a copy of this game for review. I am not otherwise affiliated with Bossa Studios, however.) I Am Bread is clearly a new entry in the “bumble... http://ow.ly/2Xi0V5

The Destiny End Game “FriendWall” - Recently, after a half year hiatus, I was finally able to play Vault of Glass… and I was blown away. The play through was epic, but what is even more surprising is the fact that this content has been in the game since shortly after launch, yet I may never have played it simply because I didn’t have a big enough group of Destiny friends. “End game” content of this style has some significant downsides. In this article I’ll dissect the p... http://ow.ly/2X5D8R

VoidExpanse Review: Gaze Into the Void - Top-down 2D space sims are a classic genre almost as old as gaming itself. VoidExpanse is a modern entry in this genre, billing itself as a fusion of old school mechanics with modern conveniences. This is another genre I have fond memories of, and I personally am happy to see renewed interest in. But is VoidExpanse worthy? Let’s find out in my VoidExpanse review. (Full disclosure: I got a review copy of this game at no charge. I ... http://ow.ly/2X0T4o

Ironcast Quickstart Guide - Ironcast is a roguelike match-3 puzzler that we checked out at SxSW and took home a copy for review. I’ve been bashing my head against the wall with this game, trying to beat the campaign. In this quickstart guide, I’ll explain how to get ahead in Ironcast and push the French back to France (where they ostensibly belong) without losing your jaunty monocle in the process. Hold Out for Good Gear When you get your first blueprints for mark-II ge... http://ow.ly/2WYC4c

5 Essential Tips for Crossy Road - You may think you’ve got Crossy Road all figured out, but without the tips in my Crossy Road guide, you’re just another bug splattered on a windshield. Although Crossy Road is a simple game, there are a few interesting wrinkles in the formula that new players overlook. How many of these Crossy Road tricks do you know? Crossy Road Tip #5: Car Conundrums No doubt you’ve ended many games of Crossy Road by getting splatted by oncoming traf... http://ow.ly/2WHWu2

Assault Android Cactus Preview - Assault Android Cactus is the debut game from Witch Beam, an Australian indie team of AAA game developer veterans. It’s a dual stick shooter featuring a cast of anime-styled robot fighters that do battle against legions of out-of-control robots. At SxSW Gaming, we played a bit of co-op and gave it our Best Co-Op award. Sanatana Mishra of Witch Beam was on hand to coach us at the con, and he also gave me a key to check out the single play... http://ow.ly/2WEgch

The Spatials Review: Spacemalls - How’d you like to run a luxury space destination? Maybe exploit some planets to make cheap consumer goods? Part management sim, part action RPG, and part god game, The Spatials joins the ranks of Dwarf Fortress, Evil Genius, Gnomoria, Prison Simulator and similar titles that focus on constructing and managing a business along with a roster of workers and supplies. This is a historically complex genre that is hard to get right – how does... http://ow.ly/2WBmHC

Dyscourse Review: RIP Dysast Air Flight 404 - Dyscourse is the latest game from Owlchemy Labs, the studio behind Snuggle Truck and Jack Lumber, and more recently the VR game/experience Job Simulator. Dyscourse is what I would call a “modern” adventure game, with the focus placed more on managing relationships and making complex decisions, and less on solving abstract puzzles to proceed. Is Dyscourse worth your time and money? Read on to find out! Dyscourse is the story ... http://ow.ly/2Wt3d7

Ironcast Review: Bejeweled meets FTL?! - Ironcast is a roguelike match-3 puzzle game set in an alternate history, steampunk version of Victorian-era Britain. After the discovery of a new power source, France and Britain are locked in a war that seems to have hit a stalemate. Giant steam-powered walking tanks called “ironcasts” are the latest weapon of this seemingly neverending war. On the eve of a massive French invasion, we join the British ironcast pilots as they mak... http://ow.ly/2WkbOI

SxSW Interactive 2015 Post Mortem - Over the weekend, EBongo and I spent a considerable amount of time navigating SxSW Interactive and the events surrounding it. This was our second major gaming con of the year, and I feel like we learned a lot between PAX and SxSW. Still, though, there were things we could have done better. In this article, I’m going to take a look at what worked for us and what didn’t, in the hopes that we can hone our game for the next round. Transpo... http://ow.ly/2WhIIy
