Dying Light is a welcome surprise into the open world action genre. We break down the first hours including the experiences that make this game a blast to play.
While there were many games in space-themed settings at PAX South 2015, Rebel Galaxy’s star shone a little brighter in my galaxy. Here’s why it a game worth keeping your lens focused on.
Dragon Age Inquisition multiplayer is a blast. If you’ve been skulking around in single player for the past few weeks, it’s time to give multiplayer a try. Here are some tips to get you oriented to this awesome experience.
One of my favorite aspects of any Bioware game is not only exploring the world created, but the characters that inhabit it. Dragon Age: Inquisition features, to the best of my knowledge, one of the most diverse ensembles of characters in gaming in terms of background, gender, race, sexuality, and age, just to name a couple traits. Of particular relevance to me is there are A LOT of women, and women in positions of power, featured prominently throughout the game

Even that child? Especially that child. Sneakers? Don’t forget the gel insoles. Zinc and vitamin C? Begin a rigorous course three weeks prior and bring some with you just in case.
The morning before the official start of PAX, I flew out the hostel door with camera gear and Tomodachi Life in tow. My first stop was Volunteer Park, a small park set back behind the carefully manicured homes of Capitol Hill.

Full disclosure, when I first booked my appointment to check out Motiga’s Gigantic most of the folks I talked to wondered why I wanted to check out “yet another” MOBA title. Due to the insane success of free to play MOBA titles such as League of Legends and Dawn of the Ancients 2, designing the next great MOBA has become a quest of sorts for developers everywhere, and for good reason, success means a whole lot of cash and quite a bit of glory. After about five minutes with Gigantic I was blown away with how unique a specimen it really was and may have actually had more Team Fortress in its DNA than League of Legends. Gigantic is a tactical class based action game at its core, and it turns out its core is made of gold.
