  • How To Get Into The Gaming Zone
     

    If you have ever watched a pitcher throw a no hitter during a game of baseball, you know just how much value the right mindset can have when you are wanting to display all of your talents for people around the world to look back on for generations to come. The reason why a no hitter is so rare would be the…[Read more]

  • Velvet Sundown is like one of those murder mystery parties, but in a virtual world. You wander around a yacht (the titular Velvet Sundown) with a bunch of rich wankers, trying to steal corporate secrets or get people to join your religious cult. Here’s how my first game went.

    I was Malik, an undercover corporate spy-man who wanted to use his…[Read more]

  • Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms is a game that’s recently came out in open alpha stage on Steam. It’s one of those really shiny looking Action RPGs that everyone loves to call Diablo clones. I unfortunately can’t say a huge amount about the game as is because as of now the Alpha is an extremely short four hours or so with only the first act and a few…[Read more]

  • I’m pretty sure you’ve never played a game like Unrest before. I’ve certainly never played anything like it. Yes, it’s got an inventory and a map and a journal and many other tropes of a conventional RPG, but while a lot of this game feels familiar, a lot more feels unique and original. The setting, the characters, the art and the music blend…[Read more]

  • Alasdair Bachell swings his shovel retro style

    I’ve never owned a NES, or even a SNES. In fact no “Golden Age” gaming console has ever been in my household; I was a PC gaming child, and my first console was a PS1. The greatest crime? The first Zelda game I ever played was an emulated version of A Link to the Past. The game was still brilliant,…[Read more]

  • Air-Conflicts-Vietnam-Ultimate-EditionThe Vietnam war was a traumatic and contentious period of American (and obviously also Vietnamese) history. Air Conlficts Vietnam attempts to portray this war in an even-handed manner, with cut scenes in between the missions showing American pilots longing for home and questioning the morality of their actions. Meanwhile, this is also one of the…[Read more]

  • hyperdimension_neptunia_producing_perfection_03When you review a large number of games, you develop the ability to very quickly appraise their quality. Normally I feel the same about a game after fifteen hours as I felt in the first fifteen minutes, but occasionally a game comes along that’s much harder to judge. In the case of Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection, even after I…[Read more]

  • 2014-05-08 19.21.52So mobile games are all shit now, right? That’s what I said just a month ago, as the market became saturated with awful Flappy Bird and Clash of Clans clones. Everything was either a re-skinned piece of F2P trash that was stealing your money, or a cynical attempt to cash in on the Flappy phenomenon with a low quality endless runner. So what…[Read more]

  • For anyone that’s into hack and slashes like God of War, Ryse is really not bad. It looks great, controls well and has some fine set pieces. So why all the hate? Well it was a launch title, and the micro-transactions are pretty obnoxious (although not really a big deal).

    Anyway, if you like this sort of thing and can pick it up cheap, it’s well…[Read more]

  • TA-earth-2Space Invaders. Ok, so I said it, Titan Attacks! is a lot like Space Invaders. In fact, it basically IS Space Invaders, albeit with some cool twists, so I am going to say Space Invaders a lot in this opening paragraph, but I promise I won’t say Space Invaders again after that. So Space Invaders with power ups and a shop that you can buy stuff in…[Read more]
