Just released yesterday, the zombie infested city parkour adventure Dying Light is quite an unique title. The game vaguely feels like a free roam version of Mirror’s Edge with some Dead Rising mixed in. This creates some amazing experiences that can relate to the games quite unbelievable, however accurate, gameplay trailer. There’s nothing quite like running down an alleyway on your way to a mission, then stopping dead when you come to a street full of shambling zombies. What do you do? Take to the roof tops? Climb the nearest bus to avoid their attacks? Or just run head long and dodge your way through the horde? It’s the encouragement of those sorts of instant decisions that make Dying Light so interesting. (more…)

Creative writing inspirational title Elegy for a Dead World surprisingly appeared on Steam today weeks before it’s expected 1st quarter of 2015 release date. This is the official release though and no mistake! Elegy is an interesting almost educational software title, encouraging users to be creative and craft a story about alien worlds as they explore them.

The almost madlib style that writers are presented prompts in allows for encouraged creativity. There is also a freeform selection that lets players input any text they like. We gave Elegy a run through and will have a review coming soon. Till then, read on for the press release details announced today. (more…)

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker may seem to just be inspired by the Super Mario 3D World levels, but goes beyond those puzzle levels gamers fell in love with. I mean common, if nothing else it’s another Nintendo game that you can throw turnips at bad guys! I’ve missed that since Super Mario Bros 2 USA (or Doki Doki Panic in Japan). I grew up on titles like The Adventures of Lolo, so puzzle games like Captain Toad really appeal to me.

With boss battles and over 70 stages with a variety of locations, the game looks pretty awesome as it is. Even better, it seems to be a value priced title at only $44.99 MSRP. That’s pretty surprising since Captain Toad looks like a fantastic title! I guess Nintendo just wants to make sure as many people as possible get to experience this game and see the value of this concept. Read on for the trailer. (more…)
