Don’t worry, the animals are punching EACH OTHER, so it’s okay. Them’s Fightin’ Herds is a 2-D fighting game that stars a cast of fluffy warriors with hooves. If it looks a tad familiar that’s because the developer, Mane 6, originally developed this game as a free-to-play tribute to the meme-flexing cartoon My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Originally known as Fighting is Magic, it looked promising, even to those not ponyliterate. Unfortunately, like most beautiful things that can never be, the threat of legal backlash halted production on Fighting is Magic indefinitely. Continue reading Them’s Fightin’ Herds – The Animal Punching Game
Two things that I love are Warhammer and Total War; can’t get enough of the war. So the drug-like thrill I get from any new information on the upcoming Total War: Warhammer shouldn’t be surprising. Continue reading Total War: Warhammer – First Official Dwarf Gameplay
The city of Knoxville is a small place. It’s a simple town with simple tastes, such as pubs, parks, possums, and free-for-all murder games, apparently. One of Microsoft’s developers, Press Play, is working on a game that will satiate your almost constant need to betray the ones you love. Continue reading Project Knoxville – The Battle Royale of the American South.
More dragons? And so soon? Apparently Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is going to be released on Windows PC and Steam in January 2016. It’ll be priced at $29.99 and feature “stunningly high-res graphics and improved fidelity.”
Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen was the enhanced version of the base game that included new quests, items, fixes and all prior DLC. It seems like a pretty decent value if they make good on the visual upgrade. Finally a chance for PC users to try out this once console constrained gem.

In this alternate history puzzler you’ll hear the metallic crunch of behemoth war machines. The old streets will crumble under the thunderous echoes of high-caliber canonry, and be illuminated by the crackle of lightning coils ready to mark their targets. But most importantly you’ll think about your every girder creaking maneuver, knowing that one mistake, one miscalculated command, could be the difference between victory and a chassis shattering defeat. Strap on your tin watch and brass goggles, because Ironcast is probably the best tile-matching game you’ll play this year. Continue reading Only Ironcast
Loadout is, if anything, bombastic. In a developer market obsessed with waist high cover and tactical realism, it certainly isn’t a game that will appeal to everyone. It can be loud, crude, ridiculous, infuriating, and juvenile at the best of times. You’ll hear the shrill screams of your characters’ final throes and find yourself either laughing or shaking your head when they raise a bloody middle-fingered salute. You’ll see this sort of thing a lot, as survival is something of a luxury in a game teeming with so much frenetic commotion. Make no mistake, staving off the reaper for more than a minute is a grand feat when considering the arsenal of skin-searing murder weapons. So if you’re looking for a game that rewards patience, brimming with constant tension and sweeping maneuvers, then you’ll probably want to avoid the exasperation and take a pass here. However, if the words: “penta-barreled, laser-guided electric rocket launcher” fills your eyes with a childlike sparkle and curiosity, then maybe you should just download the game right now.
