Fez is actually two different games. Only one of them is the game you were promised. I like the other game much better.
Welcome to Dragon’s Dogma! In this demo, you
Thank you for playing the Dragon’s Dogma demo.

Whenever I go to the pictures (or ‘cinema’ as most people call it) I make every effort to avoid trailers. Over the weekend I went to see The Cabin In The Woods, a film I knew absolutely nothing about other than it was apparently good, and it was written and directed by Drew Goddard (Lost, Cloverfield, Angel) and co-written by Joss Whedon (partly responsible for quite a few things I’ve not liked, particularly that fourth Alien film after the trilogy). We arrived early, got into the screen early and I had to watch the trailers. Looking back, I wish I’d had some ice cream to distract me.
The formerly iPad-exclusive Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is now available (and on sale) for PC on Steam. So you should definitely go get it if you don’t have an iPad. If you do have an iPad, you better have played this already! Because it’s amazing.
Sword & Sworcery is an indie action/adventure game with a really incredible soundtrack, and is frankly not quite entirely unlike anything you’ve ever played probably. It was also one of my games of the year.
So what are you waiting for? GO NOW.
A few more post-PAX reports! Indie was a huge precence at PAX East this year, and it would’ve been just as difficult to see everything there as it would have been all the triple-As. Here are impressions from just a few indie games I played at the convention. I’ll take a look at Girls Like Robots, Primal Carnage, and A Valley Without Wind: three games that are all pretty different from one another and reveal the huge variety of indie games that were available there.
Oh for God’s sake.
I’m reminded of a roundtable I once attended on violence in games. California Cassandra Leland Yee had just argued that military games teach kids how to kill. Professor James Paul Gee replied, in a perfect sarcastic deadpan, “the only thing any war game has ever taught me is that I don’t want to be a soldier.”
If you watch one video this year, make sure it’s of Electron Dance’s Harbour Master drinking with the fine folks from Arcadian Rhythms. It would seem that Mrs. Harbor Master and the miniature Harbor Masters are off on holiday. You know what that means: BEER, and lots of it.

The Log might be a little later than scheduled this month, but The Log is here nonetheless. And he’s here to count your gaming misery. March was a pretty brutal month for The Log, and some of those minus figures are really starting to toll up.
According to our header, you come to Tap-Repeatedly for the media, the opinion, and the attitude. But maybe, occasionally, some news? It’s been a week since PAX and I’m still writing up things that, while an entire week old, could be technically considered “news.” Now if you read the Tap-Repeatedly forums, you’d have gotten this information the day I got it, since I dropped up my rambling thoughts the day of the event. But if you didn’t, you still win, because now you get this information: with all-new screenshots! So, without further introduction, here’s the games I played at the SquareSoft press event at PAX East! Plus the bonus of opinions and attitude.
