Sir Plump Pledges to Bring Action-Platforming to Linux

2D action-platformers are an age-old genre and remain a staple of gaming for many good reasons. The genre as a whole has been refined exceptionally well over the years and it's hard to do a bad job with one - although there are certainly some clunkers. The recent Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back game is one such example of a game that greatly underperformed in all major metrics. Sir Plump is the debut effort from Gamelab and features the corpulent knight in a gorgeous adventure...

Smith and Winston Enters Early Access for Linux and Windows

The rise of Geometry Wars 15 years ago on the original Xbox led to a slew of imitators across all platforms. However, the biggest thing it did was revive the long-dead twin-stick shooter genre. Small attempts had been made to revive it in the form of a new Robotron game in the late '90s, but nothing stuff until Bizarre Creations' fun little side game brought the shooting sub-genre back into the limelight again. Later full-fledged entries saw it gain even more popularity, and ...

South Park: The Stick Of Truth Gets A Switch Release Date

The Nintendo Switch has made quite the name for itself over the first 18 months of its existence. One of the reasons for these praises is the strong 1st party lineup that it has made during its time, with all indications pointing to 2019 being another big year in that department. But also, the Nintendo Switch has gotten a lot of 3rd party support both in terms of new games, and past ones. Ubisoft has been one of the biggest supporters of the system and even went so far as to ...

Radical Heights Developer Boss Key Has Shut Down After Game's Failure to Take Off

Seems like not too long ago I was just writing about Radical Heights before its initial debut a day later. Released in 'X-treme Early Access' just a month ago to the gaming public, Radical Heights was looking to shake up the Battle Royale genre with its sense of humor, style, and 80s aesthetic. It offered an early glimpse to fans of the genre and ...

Pit of Evil Set to Bring RPG Action to Linux and PC on August 24

There are many RPGs on the market, but few of them feature a large group of kids going on a journey. The genre as a whole usually relies on older groups or kids being used as the main character but also relying on adults to get through the adventure. Outside of the Mother/Earthbound series, there just aren't many that use children in every main character role - but Pit of Evil is different. In this, Barry and two of his friends enter the Pit of Evil to save another friend. Ho...

Fallout 76 Beta Starts in October for Small Handful of People, More Allowed Over Time

Bethesda Studios Director Todd Howard was met with a roar of applause during the publisher's E3 press conference when he announced that Fallout 76 would be receiving a beta before the release. Not just any beta either; a B.E.T.A.(Break-it Early Test Application). No details were given about when the beta would start or what to expect from it, until now. Thanks to a post from a Bethesda community administrator on the official forums, we now know that the Fallout 76 Beta will b...

Half-Life 2 Mod Gives Players Super Mario Power

The Half-Life series is one of the most revered shooters in the history of gaming. The first title helped revolutionize the genre by proving that advancing shooting mechanics can work with a story-rich game, and gamers have enjoyed Half-Life 2 just as much by seeing how far Valve pushed the graphics and content of the original. However, easily one of the best things about Half-Life is the mods. Gamers from all over the world have come together to make some of the best mods no...
