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 [...]

Interview with the Devs: Planet Nomads

Interview with the Devs: Planet Nomads

Daniel Maslovský from Craneballs  was kind enough to shoot the shit with us about their new game, Planet Nomads, currently on Kickstarter. “Planet Nomads is a sandbox game of survival through building. As a lone scientist crash-landing on a beautiful, but unforgiving alien planet, your wit and craftiness will determine your fate in the upcoming days. Salvage all you can from the shipwreck and build something useful. Shelter for protection against the elements and curious creatures. Vehicles expand your reach.

How to Siege

How to Siege

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege has been out now for almost two months now, can you believe it?  I had played the beta, and was pretty impressed, but honestly, I had just gotten Fallout 4, and Star Wars Battlefront so I was pretty much set for games for awhile. I was lucky enough to score a pretty good deal on Siege during Black Friday, and I figured, why not? I’ll fire this baby up and see what it’s all about. Long story short, I haven’t touched Fallout 4, or Star Wars Battlefront since. Siege has been my bread AND my [...]

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 [...]
