Hero Academy [ Review ]
A lot of people play games as simple distractions and time killers, while others seek challenge and competition. Then, there are those in between who like the challenge, but also the lightheartedness that some titles offer. Hero Academy is a very good example, which has done quite well in the iOS. It has now been made available for the PC, and there is good reason to give this title a good look.
This game does look quite good, with graphics that are both smooth and vibrant. The presentation is quite simple, emulating a board game. The character models look like high [...More
DOTA 2 - Hero Guide: Venomancer [ Guide ]
Most people want to play the carries and the hard hitters in DotA 2, taking the main roles in every game. Then, there are those who take the supportive roles. At least with tanks, they look badass, but supports don't get enough appreciation for what they do. One exception though is Venomancer, because he is that good.
As a hero, Venomancer is quite versatile and is able to fit into most teams. He does have below average strength and vitality, as well as low agility, so he's not much of a frontal assault type. But for what he lacks in physicality, [...More

It takes advantage of a physics engine to simulate gravity, ballistics, and how things respond to motion, impact, and other manipulations. The casual aspect of such games makes this very friendly to the mobile platform, especially the iOS. Siege Hero is no exception, although plays in a very different way.
Armor Games, developers of numerous games that have taken over the web, had made Crush the Castle, which was this tongue-in-cheek medieval puzzle game that was [...More
Half-Minute Hero: Super Mega New Climax [ Review ]
About two years ago in Japan, you would be looked at with surprise if you were playing Half-Minute Hero instead of Monster Hunter. The former is an unusual RPG game on PSP that has, what at first looks like, a primitive 8-bit art style; the latter is a hugely popular gaming franchise in Japan. Yet the quirky and original concept of Half-Minute Hero was a big hit in Japan, and the game has since gained a cult following outside the ‘Land of the Rising Sun’. Now, Half-Minute Hero is back and in high definition on the Xbox 360. [...More
