Rouge-likes are all the rage these days, with more and more being released every week it’s becoming harder to find the ones that do something different and take risks. Enter Dungeon of the Endless, an up and coming randomly generated dungeon crawler that makes opening every door a battle of life and death, and it’s rather cracking.

Here’s Something Awesome: The Banner Saga

Gamers love to imagine what would happen if multiple games were combined together, to picture a game that takes all the best elements of games they love and mix them to create something incredible. Sadly, most gamers are left to dream for a game that captures what features they desire, but not for me, as The Banner Saga manages to capture everything I love in a masterfully crafted adventure.

Steamworld Dig Review

Way back in the day, there was an Xbox 360 indie title called Miner Dig Deep, it was a nice relaxing game all about sitting back and working away at a mine. Steamworld Dig is just like Miner Dig Deep, except it has robots, monsters, puzzles, and rocket punches. Oh yes, it has sweet, sweet rocket punches.

At the dawn of this generation, Xbox Live ignited a revolution. In previous console generations, games were for the most part a lonely experience limited to yourself or a few local players, but this generation’s advancements have meant playing video games is now one of the most social experiences we can have at home.

Why Digital Distribution Trumps Physical Distribution

Over the last decade we’ve seen more and more mediums going digital. Most music is now pirated and bought online through services like itunes, and more recently streaming TV shows and Films through services like Netflix is becoming the norm. We are transitioning into an almost exclusively digital age, and gaming is inevitably next to go.

Origin for Mac now available but what next?

EA-Origin-600x300

Origin today released a 66mb update to their Origin client for OSX after last week announcing that Origin would indeed be coming to OSX after a successful Alpha period of only two weeks. So what does the new update bring us? Well it now brings us the entirety of Origins back catalogue of Mac compatible games which currently isn’t huge but it’s a start. Unfortunately, there really isn’t any other major feature to write home about, just yet. A nice surprise though was to see the hugely successful Batman Arkham series which had been successfully ported by Feral Interactive. The only snagging point on this was the pricing for the games at £19.99 for Arkham Asylum and £29.99 for Arkham City considering currently on Steam in PC format for £9.99 and £19.99 respectively. Another case of Mac user’s having their pants pulled down? Surely with Origin coming to a new platform it would learn from what Steam does and offer us content at a fair price. It’s bad enough we generally have to wait well over 12 months for a port anyway.

Steam for iPad
