Blasting – or should we say flying onto the show floor was this indie party game by Procrastinatus. Imagine a 2D game in profile perspective, where four players come together to control an airship of their own. Imagine there was a bomb set to go off in 60 seconds. And now imagine if you could

GAMEX 2013 Hands-on Preview: LIGHTNING RETURNS: FINAL FANTASY XIII

When I played FINAL FANTASY XIII back in 2010, I branded it the worst FINAL FANTASY main-series game I had ever played. Three years have passed and upon replaying the game since then, I wholeheartedly stand by my opinion on that matter. But Square-Enix have proven that they have the power to turn things around, their improved release

Preview: Saints Row IV

I’ve been a fan of the Saints Row series since the first game’s release in 2006. Originally a gritty but sometimes humorous interpretation of gang culture, Saints Row 1 is often seen as one of the many Grand Theft Auto clones that used to litter the market. With the release of Saints Row 2, developer Volition pushed the

Demo Impressions: Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (3DS)

Monster Hunter is possibly one of the most “not for everyone” series around. The combat is clunky, everything feels slow and the games typically only thrive in multiplayer, leaving the single player feeling a little too lonely at times. Yet, for those who don’t find those to be issues with the games, players will find
