E3 2021: Falling Frontier Is Space-Faring Strategy From The Mind Of A Single Developer

When we hear "developed by a single person," we expect to see something on a smaller scale, perhaps a simple design and basic gameplay. We don't expect to see a gigantic, procedurally generated space strategy game with hours of content in every session, but Scott D'Arcy of Stutter Fox Studios is doing just that. After checking the game out during an online E3 2021 hands-off demo, Falling Frontier has landed firmly on our radar.

Days Gone PC Review - Not So MMO

t's been a little over two years since the last time I took Deacon St. John for a joyride in the freaker filled mountains of a post Zombie-apocalyptic Oregon. Originally released on the PlayStation 4 in 2019, Days Gone returns for a second ride by becoming the second first party PlayStation exclusive released for PC. How does the experience hold up?

Not So MMO: Hood: Outlaws & Legends Review

Hood Outlaws & Legends can be a fun game. Can be is the operative phrase here, as the "fun factor" is heavily dependent on a number of variables, most important being simply who you are playing with. A fantastic concept on paper, Hood stumbles a bit with its execution. Couple this with a subpar PC port and Hood feels just a little half baked in the end.

Blade & Soul: Revolution Review - A 'Hands-Off' Approach for Mobile MMORPG Gamers

Revenge. Danger. Epic battles. Blade & Soul: Revolution has all of these things, but in Netmarble's global release of this once top-grossing Korean MMORPG mobile title, if you play the game as intended, you could miss all of it. Blade & Soul: Revolution dazzles with high-quality graphics and an early story hook, but with 200 levels to grind and a ton of features to learn, will players see it through to the end?
