  • Gravity Rush

    After the huge influx of titles during the launch of the Playstation Vita, in their battle against Nintendo to make it a more worthwhile handheld, my Vita has been ‘resting’ in the cupboard and along comes Gravity Rush to defibrillate it. Gravity Rush has a sandbox type feel to it in a fantasy based world (trying to…

  • The Indie Insider – Bastion, Frozen Synapse and Krater

    The Humble Bundle have only gone and done it again. In my opinion they consistently release bundles that offer the best value for money. In The Humble Bundle V you get to see some brilliant titles such as Limbo, Sword and Sworcery, and if you pay more than the average you get Bastion, which I think is…

  • The Indie Insider – Dynamite Rifles

    For the first time we’re seeing an indie bundle provider donate all the money to charity. Indie Royale have take the plunge with four games and three albums if you pay more than the average which at the time of writing hasn’t even reached the spiralling heights of £3!!

  • The Indie Insider – Amanita Design

    A cracking week for Indie bundles if you haven’t heard about them. We have the Indie Royale Spring Bundle which includes the Unstoppable Gorg title, a tower defence game influenced by outer space and circles. The great thing about this is that Unstoppable Gorg is only a few months old but what’s even better is…

  • The Indie Insider – Hard Waveform Tail

    Before I get into this edition of the Indie Insider, I want to throw a bonus game your way if you haven’t had the chance to see it yet and it’s MariO. Two very classic games in a mash up, Mario and Portal. The majority of the game is Mario based but this time the…

  • A-men

    Puzzle games have to be part of a staple diet of any gaming console and A-Men slips right into the aperitif section of a meal. If you think that this game’s a prayer simulator then I’m truly sorry to disappoint you but if you’re looking for something that teases your competitive edge then this may…

  • The Indie Insider – Stealth Vessel Gunpoint

    In the last Indie Insider I spoke about the IGF 14th Annual Indie Game Competition. Well, the voting is now closed so it won’t be long until we find out who reigns supreme in the competition. I can’t wait! Indie Past – Stealth Bastard Well, with a name like Stealth Bastard Tactical Espionage Arsehole what’s…

  • Uncharted: Golden Abyss

    I think it’s fair to be said that there were very high expectations of Uncharted: Golden Abyss. Not long off the back of Uncharted 3 what were we to expect? Graphically, I wanted a lot from it, even if it was on a handheld. If I wasn’t going to play it on the big screen,…
