I am really not sure how this one went under my radar.  I am also really not sure how radar works.  Perhaps I shoud lower my radar a bit?  Anyhow, just in case your radar is also calibrated at such an altitude where things might pass under it, you should head over to KickStarter and

There are basically two types of advertisements out there: the ones that explain why you should buy a product, and the ones that distract you from the reasons why you might choose not to.  Sharks don’t have a lot to do with deodorant, but I have definitely seen them used to sell it.  “Trying to

One of my favorite indie developers that we met last weekend at PAX East is Tom Eastman of Trinket Studios.  Tom is a guy with a lot of passion for making games, and that passion really shines through when he speaks about his work.  In today’s Indie Roll Call, Tom talks about two really cool

I have to admit.  When I first passed the Dive Kick booth at PAX East 2013, I just kind of assumed that the game was a joke.  Even without playing it, I understood the premise.  Dive Kick is two button fighting game centered around one overpowered move, the dive-kick.  Using only two buttons, and no

Ubisoft’s booth may have been the most central spectacle on the PAX East 2013 expo hall floor, and the action surrounding ShootMania Storm was a major reason.  They were running live matchups all day, with dozens of PC stations streaming directly to the big screen monitors above.  They even had a host onstage hyping up

BBTinterview

As I mentioned in my article last week, Battleblock Theater was my most anticipated game going into PAX East 2013.  Thankfully, on the first day of the convention, Jon and I were able to try out the cooperative story mode, and I got a chance to speak with The Behemoth team in a lighthearted, one-on-two

We already knew it was coming out sometime in Spring, but today, The Behemoth released a pretty comical video announcing that Battleblock Theater will be officially released on April 3rd.  I usually don’t post “news.”  There isn’t even a category for it in the header.  But this is big news, and the announcement comes in perfect
