Early Age of Empires II HD Buyer Reports Aren’t Good…

People who pre-ordered Age of Empires II HD now have access to the game, and although the game manages to be everything the nostalgic remember, that unfortunately means everything. It seems that this is a straight re-release, with a few graphical options added, and that no enhancements have been made whatsoever.

The rather charming Papa & Yo, formerly a PlayStation 3 exclusive, is on its way to PC. You can pre-order it off Steam right now for about a tenner (or $15 US), and that includes the fantastic soundtrack as well. It's a great chance for PC gamers to get a look at what I think was one of the more underrated digital releases last year.

Evoland – Interview with Sebastien Vidal, CEO of Shiro Games

Evoland takes the key gameplay components many of us grew up with and melds them together into a game that not only relives some of the best adventures of the late-eighties and nineties, but also is just pretty fun in its own right. Beginning life as a Ludum Dare competition winner, Shiro Games built upon the initial concept and created something that anyone old enough to remember the massive change between Final Fantasy VI and VII, or how rapidly games…

After months of rumours about the next-gen Xbox needing an always-on connection, the speculations came to a crescendo last night as the Microsoft Studios creative director, Adam Orth, took to Twitter defending an always-on console.

We were lucky enough to be able to speak with the producer of Kings & Warlords, Miika Tams, about how developer Digital Chocolate ...

After All These Years, Harmonix Relives The Story of Rock Band

To celebrate years of DLC, and as a final farewell after the release of the final song for the platform, Harmonix have today released a video reliving some of the highs and lows of the very best plastic music franchise ever. And if that isn’t enough for you, there’s some pretty terrible singing as well! It’s hard to believe that the main Rock Band franchise only really encompassed six games, and that two of those games were band-specific, but it’s…
