Rock, Paper, Shotgun - (Steven Messner)

Last week G2A, a sort of eBay but for video games keys, and tinyBuild, the publishers of Speedrunners and others, had a bit of a tussle after tinyBuild accused G2A of facilitating the sale of $450,000 worth of fraudulent game keys. Both sides exchanged demands, and today G2A seems to have pulled back on their stance and is now rolling out a program that will, in part, offer developers and publishers up to 10 percent royalties on each sale of their game.

Rock, Paper, Shotgun - (Adam Smith)

Time for some freerunning. DoubleDutch’s SpeedRunners [official site] is a spiffy side-scrolling competitive platformer in which each player controls a superhero attempting to reach the scene of a crime ahead of his or her cohorts. It’s a game about running, dodging, jumping and – most importantly – swinging from a lovely grappling hook. It’s a splendid game, supporting local and online 2-4 player games, as well as solo play against bots. You can try it for free this weekend, starting now, and there’s a 67% discount should you wish to buy.
