The Indie Gaming Roundup – Wasteland, Concursion and More

The Indie Gaming Roundup – Wasteland, Concursion and More

This week has been filled with emails concerning release dates for a number of indie titles. It is always good to see indie’s getting released, though with the ever increasing number of games hitting platforms such as Humble Bundle and Steam, it is a wonder any of them actually get played, even if they are purchased for bargain basement prices. It is worth reading what Jeff Vogel (Avadon and Geneforge) has to say about the ‘indie gaming bubble.’ Once you’ve checked that out, head back here for word on Wasteland, Euro Truck Simulator and more.

Dishonored Gets Launch Trailer – Not Out Til Friday?

Dishonored Gets Launch Trailer – Not Out Til Friday?



It is a sad fact that in the games industry we have this funny little trend of games being released on different dates in different parts of the world despite the prevalence of digitial distributors like Steam and Origin. As such, it strikes me as odd to present a launch trailer for one of the hottest games of the year, Dishonored but yet have to remind our British readers that the game doesn’t actually release until Friday. It is an immensely frustrating state of affairs that is also affecting XCOM, and I have no doubt that this arcane release schedule is contributing to these two games sitting at the of most shared games on one of the large file sharing sites. I hope that someone, somewhere realises how stupid this way of releasing games is sooner than later. If you want to see the release trailer for Dishonored it is after the break.
