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.

Human: Fall Flat Co-Op Review

Ah, hello there, human! Welcome to the world! If you see anything you'd like to do, please feel free to give it a try. Oh, you want to push buttons? Go right ahead. Opening doors?

Monster Hunter Freedom Unite Returns to iOS, Online Co-Op in Tow

The 2014 release of Monster Hunter Freedom Unite for iOS did the nigh impossible when it adapted precision-based gameplay for greasy touch screens. It wasn't perfect, but hey, it was fantastic. The release of iOS 9 about a year later made Freedom Unite unplayable, so Capcom pulled it from the store. Sad face. It took some time, but the game has finally returned, just in time to compete with Monster Hunter Generations!

That's a lot of gold, and a lot of lead.

Lead and Gold Developers Giving Away 100,000 Copies for Free

Back in 2010, developer Fatshark released an old west themed third person shooter called Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West. It was met with plenty of nodding heads, but as the wheels of time turned the game was all but forgotten. Now, Fatshark has decided to spice the summer up by doing the digital equivalent of throwing a pile of money in the air and watching it rain. 100,000 free copies of Lead and Gold are up for grabs!
