Arc System Works, the popular developers behind Guilty Gear and BlazBlue, have just launched a new teaser site for an upcoming game. The countdown, superimposed with the initials BRCS, indicates 7 days until the reveal and features an anime-esque artwork showcasing a busty, leather-clad heroine with a dagger of sorts.

PAX East – Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth Announced for This Fall

The Civilization games have always had a bit of fun with history. Interweaving historical monuments and figures into a game that allows for a surprisingly free reign over your chosen society. All that sounds like it could change in some interesting ways with the annoucement of Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth which, rather than looking to the past, allows players to colonize alien worlds way into humanity’s future. From some of these announcement details I get the impression that while [...]

Spate Review – True Detective

It must have been some sort of coincidence that the week I played indie platformer Spate was the week I finished up watching HBO’s True Detective. It seemed given that both are noir detective stories with a good chunk of horror elements that I could reference one within the other as an easy way to grab your attention. And I need it now, because if there’s a game I’m asking you to check out, it’s Spate.

A title I’m keenly interested in however was recently rated M and the ESRB’s description for Drakengard 3 makes me think the game will be everything I expected it to be. Their description can be read below: This is a role-playing action game in which players assume the role [...]
