The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

DAILY MANIFESTO

The Download March 7th, 2013

Posted on Thursday, March 7 @ 17:50:37 Eastern by

I wish I was playing SimCity. I really do. I think the game looks really fun, I like that it's friendly to people with less experience, and I love the interdependency mechanics, but why the hell can't I occupy a damn city? We'll continue to bring you more about the launch woes with EA's Origin service, but for now, here's this week's downloadables.

Xbox Live Indie Game Spotlight: Rad Raygun

Just click play. Please click play and listen to the awesome chiptune soundtrack that goes with Rad Raygun, a throw back to gray-brick Game Boy if there ever was one. Hints of Mega Man are strong with this one, and the arts style and dedication to the age of "totally rad" times is admirable. Even better, it plays super fast and really lays the nostalgia on thick.

Rad Raygun takes players to 198X and gives them control over namesake Rad. You'll trot around the globe hunting down communist robots. The action is spread over 5 levels and, the developer writes, "4 unique shades of monochrome off-green." I still can't get enough of the soundtrack from Fantomenk.


iOS/Android Pick of the Week: Sonic Dash

Why it took Sega this long to make an auto-runner based off of the blue blur is beyond me. Maybe they were waiting for Jaleel White to get back to them about voicing Sonic the Hedgehog in-game. Maybe they just don't know what they're doing with the Sonic brand anymore. Who knows?!

The point is, Sonic Dash is here and obviously very pretty. I love the frame rate and the bright primary colors in the game. It reminds me of Sonic Adventure 2 and the way everything looked clean and bright. The best part about Sonic Dash is that it never ends, so hypothetically Sonic could just run and run forever. That's right little buddy, run from those problems. We're all running with you....
