John Bardinelli - Contributor

John started playing games back in the dark days before the internet. You know, Game Boy link cables, multitaps and all of that. Now, with portable devices dwarfing the power of his first few gaming consoles, John mostly sticks to the PC and mobile worlds and has a particular fondness for retro-themed indie games. That, and Borderlands! Over the past decade John has written for more than a dozen gaming sites, covering everything from browser to mainstream games. Once the day's work has been done, he can usually be found with his nose in some ancient history or philosophy book. Next stop: publishing another game script, or maybe a regular old work of fiction!

When not writing or gaming, John has a summer home on Arrakis where he spends his leisure time wrestling sandworms.

Biomutant Extermination. The arcade game has just hit Steam Early Access and promises weekly updates with more of everything that makes it such a tempting purchase.

Well, assuming you know to shoot them, of course.

Zombies Monsters Robots Says it All

Just when you thought you had seen the last zombie game ever (just kidding, who would ever think that?), along comes Zombies Monsters Robots. It plays a little like Gears of War, the publisher calls it a sequel to Mercenary Ops, and it has online co-op confirmed for at least eight players. Oh, and it's being developed by Yingpei Games, a studio that was once known as Epic Games China.

And it will pay you for it, too.

Want to Kill the Mindless Undead? Zombie Hunter Inc Will Deliver.

Zombie Hunter Inc from Maya Gameworks is a rough and gruff shooting game that's all about making big gooey piles of zombie corpses. Er, un-reanimated zombie corpses, that is. Inspired by the likes of Castle Crashers and Seal Hunter, you have seven minutes to stave off the hordes. Use the cash given to you by the sheriff to purchase better guns, all so you can head back out there and kill zombies even faster.

Pulsar Features Cooperative Space Exploration with a Side of Permadeath

Aside from voxel sandbox games, Flappy Bird clones and "gritty" first person shooters with muscular male protagonists, the new "it" genre everybody's talking about is the cooperative starship simulator. Ok, maybe it's not as mainstream as we'd like, but the idea is certainly catching on. Pulsar: Lost Colony is the latest addition to the budding sub-genre, and the developers have some great ideas at a rolling boil.
