This last decade we’ve seen improvements on beloved genres as well as the creation of new genres spawning from a single game. This list is not based off of what games were the most popular, or made the most money, or even the most nostalgic. Instead, this list is a culmination of a 6 week process of deliberations that took place in a 5 part series of podcasts, as well as debates in our community Discord.

Microsoft just unveiled a limited-time subscription service, Xbox All Access, for not just games, but the console itself starting at $19.99 a month. Well, not exactly. You’ll essentially be signing up for a line of credit through a partnership Microsoft has with Citizens One. It’s going to feel like a subscription service because along with the console, you’ll get 24 months of Game Pass Ultimate (Includes Xbox Live, and Game Pass for console and PC), as well as an option to upgrade your console after 18 months. (Limited time 12-month console upgrade if you get an Xbox One X) Continue reading “Xbox All Access, Microsoft’s Promise of the Best Value in Gaming”

Many of the games I’ve played in the past that really put an emphasis on the art style usually lack when it comes to gameplay. Not that it means the gameplay is automatically going to be bad, but it’s going to feel limited. At least, this has always been my experience. You’ll maybe have just two or three buttons to mash, and the game won’t get much more complex than that. This is what I’ve thought about these different “Interactive art” style games that I’ve played in the past. That is until I played Ovivo, and I was pleasantly surprised at what the game turned out to be.
TaleSpire, developed by BouncyRock Entertainment out of Norway, is a new digital tool to build your own Tabletop RPG. TaleSpire’s Kickstarter campaign just launched on June 25th and runs until August 8th. The campaign has already raised over half of its first goal of $126,353. It’s no wonder it’s taken off, it looks beautiful and they’ve proven with their concept art and working Alpha that they know what they’re doing.
