As someone that lived through it, I can attest that many NES games based on 1980s action films were pretty terrible. 8-bit games like Robocop and Nightmare on Elm Street couldn't compare to the unforgettable film counterparts--in fact, thanks to color limitations on the NES, the characters looked a...
Independent developer Motiga's recently announced free-to-play PC game Gigantic may be reminiscent of a MOBA game, but the studio has described it as otherwise. To gain a better insight into how this new IP differentiates itself from MOBAs, we spoke to James Phinney, vice president of product...
