Wasteland 2 Beta Impressions

I was one of the 32,781 people to woft $15.00 USD gently in the direction of Wasteland 2 when it first showed up on Kickstarter, which means I’ve now got access to the game’s beta…

Grid Autosport Preview

It’s difficult to frame Grid Autosport as anything other than an attempted Codemasters apology to the Grid fans who didn’t appreciate the drift-happy antics of Grid 2. While that sequel’s looser, more arcade-focused approach was…

Endless Legend Early Access Preview

Such is the dizzying nostalgia high generated by Master of Orion II, most ‘4X’ strategy games find themselves confined to space. A lot of those titles are doomed to chase a decaying dream with tragic…

Starpoint Gemini 2 Early Access Preview

Starpoint Gemini 2 is more difficult to describe than you might expect. You’re a space pilot with a lone craft left to your own devices in a wide-open galaxy, trying to make a name and…

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2 Preview

For me, this foray into the closed beta build of The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2 was a tale of two characters. Perhaps that’s appropriate for this not-quite sequel, which aims to pick up…

Hegemony Rome: The Rise of Caesar Preview

Prior to putting a few hours into this Early Access version of Hegemony Rome: The Rise of Caesar, I’d no experience with Longbow’s Hegemony series. It seems like I’ve been missing out a bit because,…
