GameHounds 198: Borderlands 1; Goalie 0

In: Podcasts by Edie Sellers

23 Oct 2012

It takes a big man to admit he was wrong. And Holy Goalie is a very big man. This week, Goalie admits that he’s caught the Borderlands bug and it’s not going away anytime soon. And GamerEdie Sellers and Nick Dinicola agree with him: It’s that good. In addition, the GameHounds team covers news and [...]

Review: Toy Soldiers: Cold War

In: Reviews by Dave "Holy Goalie" Gardner

13 Sep 2011

Nothing gets Holy Goalie’s juices going like the 1980s. I tried the demo for  the original Toy Soldiers, and even though it was different and cute to be fighting with the small guys, it just didn’t do it for me. Perhaps it was the World War I setting, or maybe it was just missing something. [...]

Review: Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes HD

In: Reviews by Leah "WhiteGodiva" Haydu

22 May 2011

Strategy games and I don’t get along. We never have. I’ve tried many times to get into the genre, in large part because the marketing for these titles often tries to trick me into thinking it’s something I really want to play. Featuring large-eyed, anime-inspired characters peering enthusiastically from the cover art of a game [...]

Indie Game Review: Mower

5 Apr 2011

After a long winter of shoveling snow, we all look forward to spring time so we can get back to doing outdoor activities: Cooking on the grill, throwing a ball in the back yard, and hanging out with friends and neighbors. However, none of this is possible until you cut the grass. Yes, I found [...]

PAX East 2011: Fallen Frontier Hands-On

In: Articles by Leah "WhiteGodiva" Haydu

13 Mar 2011

I’m a sucker for Metroidvania-style games — even though I hate that name for them — so I was immediately excited to try developer Moonshot Studios’ side-scrolling cooperative shooter, Fallen Frontier. Moonshot is primarily composed of ex-Bungie employees, so even though this is a completely different style of game than, say, Halo, no one can say [...]

Realistic racers with realistic cars don’t appeal to me very much. If I’m going to drive around a track during my gaming time, I want stuff to blow up every once in a while. Seems like a reasonable request, right? Developer Isopod Labs and publisher Autumn Games oblige my taste for virtual fiery doom with [...]

PAX East 2011: Trenched Hands-On Demo

In: Articles by Nick "Alsop Live" Dinicola

How do you make trench warfare fun? With giant mechs of course. At least that’s the thinking behind Trenched, the new XBLA game from Double Fine, which actually plays nothing like trench warfare and is all the better for it.

PAX East 2011: BattleBlock Theater Hands-On

In: Articles by Leah "WhiteGodiva" Haydu

13 Mar 2011

I love The Behemoth. I love its quirky-cute art style, I love its casually super-violent gameplay, and I love its emphasis on cooperative gaming. That’s why I was so excited to see the arcade booths that The Behemoth set up at PAX displaying its latest title, BattleBlock Theater, a game I’ve been drooling over ever [...]
