Mobile Monday №207 Here's a trend we wouldn't mind seeing proliferate: games releasing alongside reference guides. Sure, you see the word "reference" and automatically think "boring" and sure, it's not a good idea for every game to do this, but in the case of Year Walk, a game based on Swedish folklore, a companion release that features more detailed mythological information is an amazing idea. Now we're almost more exciting about the companion than the game itself!

Link Dump Friday №305 There're horrifying things in this week's Link Dump Friday!

Mobile Monday №204 Do you ever stare at your iPhone or Android phone and just ask it what the heck it thinks it's doing? Sitting there, sucking power out of the battery, awaiting your commands like some sort of obedient machine. And then, when you're playing a game and suddenly fail, why it made you do that? Because you totally had the skills to pull that jump off, it was your phone's fault you missed it. Your phone's fault...

From a commercial re-imagining and overhaul of the 2011 indie game of the year to a musical celebration of deadly technology, this week has something for everyone.

The Vault №120 What's in a shooter? A bullet by any other game is just the same... right? Wrong! This week on the Vault, we look at three games that turn the genre you think you know upside down, from multiplayer madness set in a blink-and-you're-dead fantasy world, to hilariously entertaining zombie destructive physics environments, and even a visual novel/horizontal shooter hybrid that will keep you involved for hours and hours...

As a bonus, an absurdly addictive iOS hit comes to your PC, the Dustforce devs cook up something new, and Slender Man is right behind you.

Best of 2012! It was the best of times, it was the worst of times... wait, wait no. It's totally just the best of times, because it's time for the Best of 2012! Tell you what, if Charles Dickens had had all the awesome games that came out this past year, his work would have been a darned sight cheerier. After all, how can you not be excited when you have games about uncoordinated unicorns, random fire hazards in space, stories as currency, ponies with a passion for dental hygeine, and kitties that force you to confront the harsh inevitability of death?

The Vault №112 What's in an RPG? As games continue to evolve and change concepts, that's changed significantly. Some of them might merely incorporate "RPG elements", while others rely on providing a story-lite, but in depth combat-oriented adventure, and still more offer up classic JRPG style with a twist. Here are three games who all serve up RPG gameplay, of sorts, in vastly different styles and ways.
