And more dynamic lighting than a Prince concert

Legend of Dungeon Combines Roguelike and Beat-Em-Up

As of this moment, Legend of Dungeon is available to purchase. The 2.5D sidescrolling roguelike takes a page from old school brawlers like Double Dragon and wraps everything in a moody, dynamically-lit RPG shell, complete with randomly generated content. The result is a challenging and great-looking game that throws everything at you from snakes to crawling things that latch onto your face.

Soul Sacrifice, the game where you can hurt you friends - but in a cooperative way! - is a pretty highly anticipated Playstation Vita game this year.

Hammerwatch is inspired by classic arcade games such as Gauntlet, providing players with dungeons to crawl through, multiple character classes, and swarms of enemies to crush. The best news is that in addition to single player mode, Hammerwatch will support online, local and LAN-based co-op games for up to four people!

Free to play ARPG with high level of character customization enters open beta

Path of Exile Begins Open Beta

Path of Exile, a PC Action RPG, entered open beta today. The servers were wiped clean of all closed beta characters just a few hours ago, and there should be no more character wipes, even when the game officially launches. While similarities to Diablo II and other ARPGs can be clearly pointed out, Path of Exile stands apart from the crowd in several ways, including its unique skill system where skills are attached to gems (not the characters) and can be modified with other gems.
