Welcome to our Ascend: Hand of Kul guide! This guide aims to provide information on the many unique features in Ascend. In addition to the core mechanics, you'll find tips on making use of Ascend's varied equipment, items and spells. You'll find comprehensive lists of each area in the larger world, the many dungeons that populate it, the achievements you'll earn for progressing through it and the game's "collectibles" in the form Lore Stones hidden throughout it.
As Ascend: Hand of Kul is ongoing and new content is being planned and added, we can't guarantee our guide will cover all aspects of the title in the future. But for those looking to get a foothold in the game and learn how to make the most of their time spent hacking, slashing, looting and learning, you've come to the right place. If you've yet to check out Ascend: Hand of Kul, you can find our impressions in the official review.

Welcome to our guide for all things Dust: An Elysian Tail! Dust is without doubt my pick of the games released on XBLA this summer and an all-around fantastic game. While it's almost impossible that you haven't heard of this game by now, definitely check out our review for the game.
Dust can be pretty challenging at times, with a few tough bosses to defeat and a whole host of hidden content. In an identical way to classic games such as Castlevania and Metroid, Dust expects that players will revisit previously completed levels in order to unlock new areas and secrets.
In this guide, I’ll be providing some general tips and some combat hints on this page as well as a boss guide (beware spoilers) and a guide for the Bakers Dozen achievement (for finding all the hidden characters) on separate pages.

Welcome to our Hybrid build guide! This guide will provide builds to use throughout each of Hybrid's modes and are designed to account, collectively, for a good 90% of the game. Hybrid is designed with a lot of variety, in fact it's one of the things we liked in our review, so ultimately you and your team mates will deviate from builds, even the ones we have made for you here. However, it's important to have a starting point, especially if you're not familiar with Hybrid regarding what actually matters and what doesn't. For instance, most shooters don't subscribe to the idea of "suppression", it's usually not very effective, but it works in Hybrid and it works well.
Do enjoy the builds we've provided for you here, but keep in mind that these are starting points! Add your own flare or personal preference to really do well with them. If you have any suggestions, feel free to comment on the guide and in a few weeks we'll add good ones to a community section at the bottom of the guide. While the builds we've created for you here are more general, feel free to get ridiculously specific- all the way down to map and mode.
Enjoy the guide, and enjoy the game!
