Ethan: Meteor Hunter Preview

Ethan Meteor Hunter is a puzzle platform game by Seaven Studio. You play as Ethan, a mouse given the power to stop time because he was hit by a meteor.

There is a counter at the top of the screen to let you know how many meteorites are in a given level and how many you have collected. It's definitely an original idea, at least from what I’ve seen.

What's a little Metal Gear hype without a few wild (and a few less wild) fan theories?

Innovation held back by Old Machines – Welcome to PC Gaming, and to PS4 and Xbox One

For years now, console gamers have rolled their eyes whenever the matter of PC gaming being “held back by consoles” has come up. The PC elite, with their often snobbish attitudes and condescending comments, have claimed that because all they get are poor console ports, that no publisher is really making the most of their more expensive, more modern hardware.

The Pros and Cons of Blocking the Second Hand Market

More than once, the second hand video games market has been called worse than piracy.
