Most Anticipated Games of 2016

Most Anticipated Games of 2016

From the dying embers of lackluster 2015 we look ahead to 2016 with hope, hope that finally shit is going to get real, hope that Ubisoft is going to deliver on its promises, hope that these f@cking rigs we built with our bare hands are going to get punished by some motherfunking bitching gaming awesomeness. And what gives us this hope? these mofo’s right here…….. Cyberpunk 2077   Cyberpunk 2077 is an upcoming ARPG that was announced back in 2012, based on the Cyberpunk 2020 series of tabletop role-playing games. It’s currently being developed by those those busy boys and girls at CD Projekt [...]

The Division Beta 1st Impressions

The Division Beta 1st Impressions

Tom Clancy’s The Division beta began yesterday for us PC gamers, among much anticipated fanfare and apprehension. How would the servers hold up? Would the graphics downgrade turn us off? No. As far as the internet is concerned the servers have held up as well as can be expected and even though in beta, it is a beautiful looking game. After loading up and getting into the game, one is taken back with how nice everything looks. The weather effects and worn down city-scape drop you smack in the middle of a recently virus ravaged Manhattan and the designers/devs (the [...]

World of Tanks: Generals

World of Tanks: Generals

No one was more surprised than me when I heard that a card game based on World of Tanks was being added to the Wargaming line-up. World of Tanks Generals is a free-to-play, browser-based Collectible Card Game focused on tank combat (with in-game purchases to support the ‘free’ part, obviously). I was lucky enough to get hold of a Closed Beta key, and I’m going to tell you what I think about WoTG, but before we begin I should tell you I’m no great CCG fan and I’m pretty hard to please. Not only does the game have to be enjoyable, but the setting has to be right too [...]

Homefront, better than you thought it was..

Homefront, better than you thought it was..

When we were suggesting games for our list of Most anticipated Games of 2015 I threw Homefront 2 into the mix. Two days later, when the laughter had died down and they finally realised I wasn’t trolling, they wanted to know why. ‘It’s simple’, I told them. ‘Because the original Homefront is one of the best FPSs I’ve ever played!’ (But with a hell of a lot of caveats!). Now before I go on, I’m not talking about the single player campaign, which was the worst kind of linear shit imaginable. The protagonist can fly a helicopter and operate any number of guns and explosives, but can’t open a [...]

Early Access Review: Stranded Deep (or, ‘Game of Rocks’)

Early Access Review: Stranded Deep (or, ‘Game of Rocks’)

Note that while this game is still in Early Access and is not representative of the finished product, since I’m being charged for this I think it’s fair enough if I point and laugh at it a bit. So, yet another survival game, but this time there aren’t any zombies, cannibals or zombie cannibals. Instead, your enemy is mother nature herself, time and – at this point in the game’s life – monotony. Search for food, water and building materials, but most of all search for rocks. Lots, and lots, of rocks. First things first, though. Beam Team Games’ Stranded Deep is jaw-droppingly beautiful. From the [...]

Review: Metro 2033

Review: Metro 2033

Aeons ago in gaming terms (well, 2010) there was a game we dubbed ‘The PC Crippler’ – a game so future-proof that it can stand toe to toe with many of the big-budget games released this year. That game, my friends is, Metro 2033 (obviously, since it’s named in the title). Last year, with surprisingly little fanfare, it was given a new hair cut and a fresh pair of pants with a ‘Redux’ version. Building on already-impressive visuals, Metro 2033 Redux  improves on the original in just about every way, with superior graphics and even new gameplay mechanics, transplanted from it’s sequel, Metro Last Light. Metro 2033 is a survival-horror shooter based on the [...]

Good Godus! Molyneux’s latest could be good

Good Godus! Molyneux’s latest could be good

Let’s begin by getting stupid. BuzzFeed stupid. I’m going to roughly guess your age by the answer you give to one question. In fact, not even a question, I’m just going to say a name. Here it is: Peter Molyneux. Okay, so if you exploded with rage or seethed momentarily with righteous indignation, then you were born some time in the late 1980s to early 1990s. If you nodded and silently made the face that says ‘Respect, dude’, you were born in the early 1970s or earlier. And if you just looked confused and said ‘Who?’ or shrugged and went [...]

Impressions: SimCity BuildIt, LEGO My City

Impressions: SimCity BuildIt, LEGO My City

Fans of city building, town planning and bus-stop placement have been somewhat spoiled lately. We’ve had SimCity and Cities in Motion 2 for about a year now, as well as the recent announcements by Monte Cristo and Paradox Interactive of the latest in their respective franchises, Cities XXL and Cities: Skylines. The genre lends itself well to high-powered desktop PCs and dedicated gaming laptops, but what if you want a quick fix of road placement and pedestrian stalking while you’re away from your plutonium-powered microchip monument? Well, there are now two more options. The first is EA’s latest mobile effort, [...]

Review: The Witcher Adventure Game

Review: The Witcher Adventure Game

In this digital adaptation of CD Projekt RED’s own The Witcher Adventure Game board game, franchise fans will know the four selectable player characters well – Geralt of Rivia (the Witcher himself), Triss Merigold the Sorceress, Yarpen Zigrin the Dwarven Warrior, and Dandelion the Bard. Each character has unique skills and multiple ways of overcoming obstacles, but you decide what to do and when. Do you fight your way to victory, call on your charm, or try your hand at diplomacy? You can bring enemies around to your point of view with a sword as Geralt – or bribe them with gold and the threat of powerful friends as [...]
