Legend of Dungeon
A free update recently dropped in the laps of all Legend of Dungeon fans. The game finally gets some cool new unlockable classes including pets! Getting more build diversity sounds like a good move as it will give the game even more replayability.

If you follow the site you are aware that we are all pretty excited about Steam Machines and the Steam Link. I've mostly been tuning out the other stuff because, to date, nothing has seemed as compelling as buying a game in one place on Steam and playing it anywhere I want.

With that, last week I found out about the upcoming Nvidia Shield Console that is a $200 high powered Android TV device that supports in home streaming and Nvidia's new Grid service. Using Nvidia's in home PC streaming you can broadcast your Steam games to your Nvidia Shield console. Steam Machines and the Link do that too but what is interesting is the Shield console runs a full blown Android TV system which supports... [Read All]
The Legend of Zelda
I just found out that The Legend of Zelda Wii U game is getting delayed. It looks as though it will not be released this year. While I am eagerly awaiting the release of the new Zelda game and I was excited to see some of it displayed at last year's E3, I feel that the reason behind the delay is justified (see quote below). It also appears that the game will not be shown at this year's E3, which I find disappointing.

Here is what Eiji Aonuma has said about the delay:

"Since I declared at the Game Awards in December that the game would launch in 2015, the directors and the many members of the development team have been working hard developing the game," Aonuma said. "In these last three... [Read All]
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
I was excited many months ago when WhiteBoySlim told me about Skywind. "It is a non-commercial, fan made modification for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim that seeks to merge the amazing world of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind with the enhanced graphics and capabilities of Skyrim's engine." (Source: SkyWind FAQ)

While I have played Morrowind and own two copies of the game, I have not yet completed it. It wasn't until I played Skyrim that I got into The Elder Scrolls series. I am excited about this project and am eagerly awaiting its release. While this mod was publicly available, it currently is not.

It's been a long time since Fornight was unveiled by Cliffy B at PAX. Since then Cliffy has left Epic and started his own game company, Epic released Unreal 4 engine for free and Unreal Tournament is getting a reboot. Fortnight has remained in pretty active development but I haven't heard very much about it from others or the press. As I was reading about Fortnight I watched the video above showing off gameplay, construction and basic game mechanics. In Fortnight (or one mode of it) your team builds up a base to survive the oncoming hordes of invaders. Some of your team members gather resources while others build the base to hold up to the invasion. After watching the video I have a... [Read All]
Broken Age
Double Fine is releasing the second and final act of Broken Age on April 28th. Most of us have followed this game from it's record breaking Kickstarter to it's act one launch to it's eventual final chapter in April. I picked up Broken Age as a Slacker Backer during one of the Amnesia Fortnight events. I wanted to wait until the game was fully released to start playing it so hopefully i'll have the time to start it up when April 28th comes round.

Curious if anyone has played this and what they think of act one so far(please no spoilers).

After the gamemaster was finished explaining the rules for March of the Ants I was ready to build my colony. As a young kid I couldn’t get enough of SimAnt so it seemed like March of the Ants was something i’d enjoy. Created by Portland locals Ryan Swisher and Tim Eisner, March of the Ants was successfully Kickstarted to it’s currently released state of strategic game goodness. The joy of playing a locally crafted board game run by the people that had a hand in developing it is one of the reasons why attending GameStorm is a unique experience. Plus it doesn’t hurt if you can take down a rogue centipede or uncouth spider. If you are looking to play new games in early stages or buy... [Read All]

I wanted to let everyone know about a slew of new features that I added to the site over the last few weeks that I can finally talk about. I've wanted to add this stuff for quite some time and have been really happy with how it turned out. Let me know how the new features work out for you and if you run into any issues with them.

Steam Login

Most of us use and love Steam. Steam is constructed such that the Desktop and web client are pretty much the same. One cool part of Steam on the web is that you can authenticate to a website like Cheerful Ghost through Steam. Facebook, Google and Steam have provided websites like Cheerful Ghost with the ability to authenticate for quite sometime so you... [Read All]

I enjoy reading every bit of interesting information I can about people doing interesting stuff in gaming. Recently Geoff Keighley sat down with Gabe Newell and Erik Johnson of Valve to talk about some behind the scenes stuff with Valves recent reveals. Gabe addresses people that look to creators to create sequels, massively hinting at peoples desire to see a Half-life 3. He doesn't say much other than he understands where people are coming from and as fans they want more of the things they love too.

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft
I just recently found out that Blizzard is giving away the Hearthstone soundtrack for free. If you are interested in owning the music of the game, check out the link below.

Diablo III: Reaper of Souls
Diablo III has had a pretty interesting journey from it's early design days to it's eventual reveal, launch, loot 2.0 and most recently with the Reaper of Souls expansion. As a fan of the original games I pre-ordered the Diablo III Collectors Edition and had high hopes for the game. I enjoyed the final released game but felt it didn't have quite a long tail that the original games seemed to have. When they released loot 2.0, a patch that fundamentally changed how the reward system worked, I was pleased as were many other people. If you wanted to know more about this process and the reasoning and history behind Blizzards early version of Diablo III to Reaper of Souls Josh Mosqueira had a... [Read All]

I downloaded BioShock Infinite on Linux and after updating my video card drivers I was able to play the game. BioShock Infinite plays similarly to... [Read All]
StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void
Blizzard will be opening up the closed beta for Legacy of the Void starting on March 31st. They are adding some really bad-ass looking units starting with the Protoss Disruptor which looks totally over powered in the video. Blizzard is great at balancing so I imagine it won't be quite as destructive but if used properly? Blizzard also added the Cyclone a new unit to the Terrans which is a tank that locks on to an enemy unit and can fire while it moves. I can see the Cyclone being a very important part of Terran harassment in Legacy. Zerg multiplayer finally gets the Lurker back and Blizz added a new Ravager unit that can drop Protoss shields and attacks with a damage over time corrosive... [Read All]

We're looking for help in deciding the next game we jump into for the month(-ish). Go here to vote: http://goo.gl/qO87UO , then join us in playing and sharing your experience!

We'll post a link to the event here in this post as soon as we get a clear winning title.
The Legend of Zelda
In this recent episode of Game/Show Jamin asks "Why can't Link be a girl?" And whereas that's not a bad question, i'd rather flip it to ask why Zelda can't be the hero of a game named after her? She seems capable and I bet Link could use a vacation. Jamin asks the question if people may be turned off by Link being a female and as I thought about it I imagine some would be. That said those people are more rare these days and getting a great Zelda game featuring Zelda or Femlink would be too interesting to avoid.

I was talking about this the other day with friends and one of them mentioned Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon as a game that features Zelda as the main character. I mentioned that... [Read All]
