[PAX East 2013] Powerhouse Gaming Laptops by ASUS & MSI – First Impressions

In the world of PC gaming, it is commonplace for your traditional PC gamer to have a rig that they built themselves. I still have mine, although it was built during the creation of Stonehenge. But how about your closed-quarters gamer looking for a desktop replacement? Not everyone has the space for a 500 key Razer keyboard with a game stats screen. So what do gamer-supporting computer companies consider a proper all-in-one gaming package? On...

[PAX East 2013] Legend of Dungeon Interview

Approaching the Legend of Dungeon booth at PAX East this year, the atmosphere was pure gamer happiness. I looked on as two developers excitedly buzzed about the showcase; shouting helpful tips to the 4-person gathering of fans demoing the game, explaining the finer nuances of poking pixel ogres with tiny sword sprites and genuinely enjoying themselves in their element. Speaking with Robot Loves Kitty developers Alix Stolzer and Calvin Goble was a real joy; I...

[PAX East 2013] Delvers Drop Interview

The retro gaming revival is alive and well, bringing us a steady stream of nostalgic wonderment from our childhoods with all the unforgiving difficulty curves we know and love. One of its best representations I’ve seen is Delvers Drop. Imagine if Link was dosed with hallucinogenic mushrooms, plunged into a dark yet colorfully lit dungeon of countless levels filled with shifting walls and baddies clamoring to gnaw on his bones and you’ll start to get a sense of what the Delvers Drop...

Quantum Conundrum Review

It’s hard to not be struck with Déjà vu at the start of Quantum Conundrum. In short, it’s a science themed first person action physics puzzler not unlike the Portal franchise. In fact, Quantum Conudrum’s lead designer Kim Swift, was the co creator of Portal and involved in the making of the Left 4 Dead games at Valve. With this in mind, I want to approach this review respecting the game as a unique entity...
