If you're not familiar with the name Mage Knight, here's all you need to know: the tabletop strategy game features collectible figurines, endless hours of flexible tactics, an expansive fantasy mythology and a rabid fanbase. Except for the tiny action figures, that sounds like the makings for a good PC game, too. Enter Mage Knight: Apocalypse, Namco's attempt to join the Action RPG ranks alongside games like Diablo and Dungeon Siege.
All of the core races from the tabletop game are
If five is the magic number for your party while playing the action-soaked left-clickathon Mage Knight: Apocalypse in single player, what happens when five actual humans join in the fray? To put it mildly, it's a running, gunning, yelling, healing and curse-filled fun-fest. But that's not the best
We have to admit, playing the videogame version of Mage Knight - a deeply storied and popular tabletop game from WizKids - without having ever touched one of the collectable miniatures made us feel a bit like poseurs. But the action role-playing Mage Knight: Apocalypse was so instantly addictive that we soon simply felt like heroes.
Mage Knight immediately stands apart from its towering peers because of its stunning good looks and versatile controls. With a flick of the mouse wheel, we zoomed
Another year, another installment of Duels of the Planeswalkers – and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Check out what’s new and what’s gone in the 2013 edition, which drops next week...
It probably won't do for graffiti what the Tony Hawk games did for skateboarding, but Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure has gotten a pretty bad rap lately. A game about a graffiti artist living in a police state where tagging is a capital crime, it's been called everything from a celebration of vandalism to a gang-recruitment tool.

Whats going on at Cryptic Studios? Three years ago, they came out of nowhere to deliver City of Heroes, the super-hero MMO that demanded you wear spandex when playing. It had a smart approach to group play (you could rope your low-level friends into your group by making them a sidekick) and comic book panache (punch a goon and hed fly back a dozen
Gazillion Entertainment's Marvel Heroes has a number of things going for it. Here are 12 impressions of the game we got after seeing it at this year's New York Comic-Con...
If you never played Mass Effect on the 360 you probably won't notice most of the improvements that have been worked into the upcoming PC version. But in a way, that's a good thing. BioWare's epic space opera still looks gorgeous and will keep you busy for hours on end as you trek across the galaxy with your ragtag posse outcasts and aliens. But most of the tiny problems we had with the console version have been addressed, which makes the PC
“Shepard! But... but you’re dead!” cries a baffled Asari crime lord having been backed into a corner by our hero. “I got better,” replies Shepard, as cool as a penguin’s bum. It’s not a dialogue choice, it’s right there in the cutscene; otherwise we’d have chosen the option along the lines of “I know, after that E3 trailer I’m just as confused as you about the whole thing."
If you felt Kasumi's Stolen Memory was too short and Overlord was too side-storyish, Lair of the Shadow Broker may be precisely what you're looking for in Mass Effect 2 DLC. According to BioWare, it's set to be the "richest in scope" of all existing add-ons, and also claims to bridge the events of ME2 with any future products. So, even though BioWare won't admit this DLC pack will likely affect your Mass Effect 3 game, it was definitely giving off that vibe during our hands-on.
