The remaster of the 2012 game came out today, bringing slightly nicer graphics and gameplay to an old fan favourite. There’s a cheeky 50% discount on Steam right now too, if you already own the original game. If only THQ Nordic had given it a slightly nicer name. I’ve already triple-checked that I haven’t written “re” too many times. (more…)

How fitting, then, that wonderful Wild West squad tactics game Desperados 3 today launched a Linux version. A Mac version arrived too, so even those city slickers might be tempted by the cowboy lifestyle. The first paid DLC mission is out now too, plus a challenge…

Oh hey look, here comes the first so-called “gameplay trailer” for Kingdoms Of Amalur: Re-Reckoning, which might look a fair bit like another World Of Warcraft-esque MMORPG but…
