I am six hours into a brand new video game called Jack Keane 2: The Fire Within, which just came out on Steam today. Before we begin, this game is a sequel and you should know that I did not play Keane #1, so I'm judging this game not as a sequel, but as it's own thing.

I have spent five days with a video game called Pro Cycling Manager 2013 -- a title I found on Steam. I enjoyed this game. As King of the Nerds, this game scratches several nerdy itches that creep up from time to time. I find it fun and unexpectedly addicting.

What's crackin' people, AngelikMayhem here. Welcome to another edition of Neverplayed, the video series where I show you a brand new video game title that I've never played before.
Today, I've played a copy of Gunpoint, which is a 2D noir-style, spy-themed, action/puzzle game where you play the roll of a spy lost in a cold war between two rival gun manufacturers.
Normally, this would be the time when I told you which development house birthed this baby, but as it turns out this title is the brainchild of one guy: Tom Francis -- a games-industry writer from the UK.
Tom spent three years working on this project in GameMaker and he has finally launched it on Steam. Was it worth the effort? Let's find out.

Cubetractor is a new 8-bit-inspired action puzzle game from indie developer Ludochip. This company is just two dudes working together, but they've got almost a decade's worth of game design experience between them. So I had high expectations going into this review.
In the game, you play as Endroi -- a robot that decides that life as a servant just isn't for him and he takes off on a grand adventure -- much to the chagrin of his designers who just want him to manage some cubes.
Instead, he strikes out into the world heroically accepting and overcoming challenges from the other robots.
