Brigador is an isometric 2D mech-combat action game, and the debut game from indie studio Stellar Jockeys. In Brigador, you stomp, bulldoze, and/or hover your way through a variety of different futuristic cities while battling enemy mechs and causing mass destruction.

Kerbal Space Program (often abbreviated KSP) is a rocketry and space simulation game that has been available in some form or another for the last 5 years.

SteamWorld Heist Review: Grand Theft Bot-o

SteamWorld Heist is the most recent game in the SteamWorld series from Image & Form games, a Swedish indie studio. I played (and thoroughly enjoyed) SteamWorld Dig, so I figured it was worth checking out Heist to see if Image & Form could do as good a job with Heist as they did with Dig. Heist feels more like a combination of XCOM, Worms, and Firefly. That's setting the bar high - does Heist clear it? Now that I've spent a couple dozen hours with Heist, I'm ready to pass judgement. Coming up next on Without the Sarcasm is my SteamWorld Heist review!

And shoot stuff we shall, in a slow-mo time-moves-when-you-do FPS. Do you have what it takes to be a bad enough dude(tte) and destroy all those darned robots? Read on for my Tick Tock Bang Bang review!

Kingdom Review: My Horse for a Kingdom!

Kingdom is a minimalist RTS from Noio & Licorice, and published by Raw Fury. In this 1D, simplified take on a traditionally complicated and involved genre, you are a would-be king (or queen) tasked with growing and protecting a tiny kingdom. We checked this game out at SxSW, and then immediately found it on sale on Steam! I've logged a dozen or so hours already, and managed to destroy a good many kingdoms already. Should you mount up and check this one out? Find out in my Kingdom review!
