Nekro Preview: Action-Strategy For The Wicked

PrioVR Brings On Full Body Video Game Motion Tracking
Forget the Wiimote, forget the tablets, forget the PS Motion controller and forget Kinect. All of those do what they do (some better than others) but none of them do it the way PriorVR does it. Full body, video game motion tracking... for the win.
7Framed Is A Murder-Thriller; New Video Looks Like Heavy Rain

The Banner Saga Wins Over Critics, But Will It Win Over Sales?
Stoic Studios' The Banner Saga has already hit the ground running, as far as critical acclaim goes.

Mercenary Kings: An Unexpected Metal Slug-Style Delight
I've done my fair share of supporting the Early Access games. Not all of them, I feel, are worth the price of admission, but a few of them seem like they carry the sort of intrigue worth a gander.
