very once in a while we encounter a new band that we can’t help but talk about. Form and Shape’s album My Conquest is the Sea of Stars sends listeners on an auditory journey through deep space with ominous beats in all the right places. If you’ve ever imagined what sort of music people might listen to while traveling at light speed on a starship, the answer is Form and Shape.
As of April 3, 2013, Disney closed down LucasArts and assumed development of any Lucasfilm properties. A look at the legacy left behind by the studio and its 30-year legacy. As former LucasArts composer Lesse Harlin put it this past…
As I was wandering the show floor at this year’s PAX East (while trying desperately to avoid the dreaded PAX POX), I stumbled across Secret Ponchos, the latest title from Switchblade Monkeys. While there were hundreds of games at PAX to be played something about Secret Poncho’s raw style really drew me in. I guess I’m a sucker for a good poncho.
Supergiant Games’ Transistor. In a word… speechless.
Yesterday I attended the second full day session of the Game Design Workshop. My brain is currently overfull in a wonderful way. While many of my fellow attendees are nursing their very real hangovers, I’m holding down an intellectual one.
Who ever thought that seating people next to one another could be so much darn fun?!
A great origin story with exploration, action, and adventure awaits in Tomb Raider.
So It’s GDC week and for the first time ever, I’m out here – and it’s amazing! Seriously, I’m as excited as a little kid going to summer camp! (well, a confident little kid, not the kind who dreads leaving their parents and is overcome with a paralyzing fear at the sight of strangers).

When we got word that Volition games was booking appointments for Saints Row 4 at this year’s PAX: East, I couldn’t wait to see what new trouble the Saints had gotten themselves into. Wow, I’m a fan of this franchise?
The Art of Survival follows the development of Lara Croft from some of her earliest concept art (there was a monkey involved), to her final finished render. Not simply a book of art, The Art of Survival also features a “director’s commentary” by Senior Art Director Brian Horton, who hand picked each image featured within the hefty 272 page book.
I was ushered into a small theatre this morning, complete with four grim looking bouncers (yes really), to take a brief look at Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and walked away incredibly impressed. Ubisoft catches a lot flack for releasing Assassin’s creed (almost) annually, but I’m happy to say Assassin’s Creed IV appears to be something entirely new and innovative.
Gears of War: Judgment is set to hit shelves in just a few hours and fans of the Mass Effect franchise might be surprised to see a very familiar name in the opening credits. Ali Hillis, the voice of Mass Effect's Dr.…
