Dead Rising 4 Has Crawled Its Way Onto Steam

Just like its zomboid antagonists, Dead Rising 4 has begun permeating every available storefront.  Soon enough, we'll be bludgeoning copies of the game as they grasp for our ankles and moan "buuyyyyyy usssssssss".Technically, Dead Rising 4 has been available on PC since its December 2016 release, but only via the Windows 10 store.  For those of us wishing for a bit broader access to the title, it hit Steam on March 14th.  At long last, our Steam friends can see us enjoying the latest Frank West adventure and chuckle at our hilarious Steam handle!DR4 kind of got swept away in the whirlwind of winter releases, but by all accounts, it's supposed to be a pretty solid entry into the series.  Its availability on Steam is good news, if nothing else, then for the chance that it'll receive a substantial discount during the upcoming seasonal sales.

ORION: Prelude was released back in 2012 to quite negative reviews. Over the years the developers continued to garner feedback and update the game, a process we documented in our Indie-Ana Co-Op with TREK Industries. Their next game, Guardians of Orion may be following a similar path. Since release it has transformed from a twin-stick shooter to a hybrid game where gamers can choose to play from any perspective. Both games are built around cooperative play.Both games are going to be free to play for a limited time on Steam. Prelude is available for free until the 20th of March and Guardians of Orion will be free to play for the week of March 20th through the 27th. Today though we're giving away copies of both games to permanently add to your Steam library - in fact in total we have almost 50 keys to give out! ($1 Version) ORION: Prelude

Death Squared Co-Op Review

Death Squared is a charming puzzle game for one to four players. The game is developed by SMG Studio, based out of Sydney, Australia who have a pedigree focused on tight indie experiences. Their games are charming and colorful, and Death Squared fits right in with their style.  The goal of the game is simple: navigate a robot cube through a test chamber to its matching circle color on the other side. Sounds pretty easy.

Flying Oak Games twin-stick-shooter-RPG-room-exploring-game NeuroVoider will be releasing to Ps4 and Xbox One, come March 14th and March 17th, respectively.

The mix of shooter and RPG balances instant gratification with long term goals, giving you plenty of excuses to play just one more level, especially when you've got a couple of friends in on the action."The announcement trailer can be seen below, as well as on the Playstation EU YouTube.

Interview with LucidSound (PAX East 2017)

about X hours ago from

Last Saturday at PAX East 2017, I had the pleasure of interviewing Alex Verrey, the Director and PR head at LucidSound. We talked about the history and future of the company as well as the different types of headsets it offers gamers.LucidSound is a fairly new name in the headset business (debuting only around a year ago), but it was entirely founded by and is staffed with audio industry veterans, coming from other companies, such as TRITTON. LucidSound was founded for the purpose of creating beautiful, high-quality gaming headsets. Their first model was the LS30 ($149.99), which Alex described as a “do-it-all, everyday headset.” Unlike many gaming headsets currently out on the market, the LS30 is completely wireless with 15 hours of wireless time between charges. Instead of using Bluetooth, which Alex told me created unacceptable lag, the LS30 uses 2.4GHz wireless technology, which allows for uncompressed audio and a better gaming experience. The battery recharges via a micro USB cable that simply plugs into your computer to become a functional wired headset while charging.
