Pox Nora is a game that's hard to categorize. It's like Hearthstone, you see, because it's an online card game.

PAX South 2015: Moonrise and State of Decay shine at the Undead Labs booth

Most media appointments at an event like PAX South 2015 work like this: You meet the person you're supposed to meet, that person shows you the game her studio is working on, and then you rush off to the next booth on your list while cursing yourself for not scheduling time for a snack.

PAX South 2015: Slaying giants in Motiga's Gigantic

Motiga's Gigantic is one part Team Fortress, one part Dota, and one part Monster Hunter.

Choose My Adventure: TERA's Fate of Arun

As was mentioned many times during our end-of-year awards and the comments surrounding them, 2014 was a much better year for adding to existing properties than releasing new ones.
