“If you are constipated this game is for you”

“If you are constipated this game is for you”

I don’t do scary anymore, something about me being a big girls blouse, but if I did this would be the one I’d want to play, especially as it’s half price on Steam this weekend. Outlast is a Survival horror video game developed and published by Red Barrels , a company founded by people previously involved with video games such as Prince of Persia, Assassin’s Creed, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell and Uncharted. So although you probably haven’t heard of them they have a solid gaming pedigree. The setting is somewhat predictable, you are a freelance journalist investigating sinister goings on at a psychiatric hospital. [...]

Bruce (previously known as Project Bogart) is the first game project of a brand new Polish dev studio named Tabasco Interactive.  The team partially consisting of ex-Nicolas Intoxicate members (Afterfall: InSanity), has put together a plan to construct a dynamic 2D platformer game strongly influenced by cultural phenomenons in the likes of Blade Runner and Sin City. The game – being developer in Unity engine – will feature special black&white bullet-time finishers (the whole game will have comic-style graphics) and is expected to put emphasis on both the mature plot and attractive, fast-paced gameplay. The protagonist, Bruce, will be able [...]

Dishonored Preview

Dishonored Preview

  I have to admit, I am a huge fan of the Thief series. The Dark Project and Metal Age are both in my private list of the best PC games ever with a believable protagonist, suggestive setting and terrific missions to play (seriously, who doesn’t love Steampunk?!). People like me have been waiting for the next iteration of our favourite game series for 8 years now. I was very excited before the June’s E3, hoping to see some footage from the 4th Thief game being currently in development at Eidos Montreal (or should I say Square Enix Montreal?). And [...]

Project CARS – crowd funding in motion

Project CARS – crowd funding in motion

Have you already heard about crowd funding? I am sure you have. For example, Kickstarter is just one of a bunch of money-raising projects allowing independent creators (private persons and companies alike) to acquire financing for their creative projects. They can then award every single one of those tiny investors with some project benefits. One of the projects that sought crowd funding is a yet-to-be-released (on PC, X360, PS3 and WiiU) racing game named Project CARS, developed and co-financed by Slightly Mad  (SM) – the studio behind EA’s Need for Speed: Shift and Shift 2 racing games. With EA having [...]

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO)

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO)

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) will expand upon the team-based action gameplay that it pioneered when it was launched 12 years ago. CS: GO features new maps, characters, and weapons and delivers updated versions of the classic CS content (de_dust, etc.). In addition, CS: GO will introduce new gameplay modes, matchmaking, leader boards, and more. “Counter-Strike took the gaming industry by surprise when the unlikely MOD became the most played online PC action game in the world almost immediately after its release in August 1999,” said Doug Lombardi at Valve. “For the past 12 years, it has continued to be [...]
