StarDrive is a new 4x space strategy game by Zero Sum Games, a one man team that has jumped every hurdle on the path to release. A successful kickstarter, passed greenlight on steam and then spent no short amount of time in beta. Have these trials been worth it? Here’s what I think.
Minimalism. Entertainment. What is left when a video game is boiled down, leaving only the fun parts? Thomas Was Alone is a shining example of what would exist if a video game could only consist of what is needed to be solid entertainment, with no frills, and those results were put under a spotlight.
Mars: War Logs is the absurdly named new RPG by Spiders Studios. Set on a human inhabited, war embroiled Red Planet, it follows the tale of the equally absurdly named Roy Temperance. Roys tale isn’t one for the faint of heart, featuring murder, mayhem, copious amounts of profanity and last but not least, attempted buggery. Welcome to Mars, tourist destination of kings.
A merger between Gaming and TV is an unusual one. Sure, we’ve had shows based on games and games on shows, but never a true merger. When It was all announced I was more than a little interested. I love both Sci Fi and MMO’s. I’ve played quite a bit of the game but having been on holiday, I’ve not had time to do everything I wanted so a What I’ve Played will come later. So, sunburn and all, I took the time to watch the first two episodes of Defiance. Here’s what I think so far.
My first ever review here was about FIM Speedway GP 2012 and I remember it being quite negative. I mentioned the controls being limited to simply turning left, there only being one racing line and that if you drifted off of it, you crippled your chances of ever winning that race. Well I’m happy to say that some of these issues have been fixed. Here’s what I think of the overall experience.
Zombies. Impossible to escape them, even in purgatory. I would have thought they would have shed the decaying mortal shell that binds them upon leaving our plane of existence. Shows how much I know! Operation “Zombie Bunker”, the new DLC for Painkiller, has us face the zombie hordes of the armies that fought and died in multiple wars, amongst other more exotic foes. Here’s what I think about it.
Football is a strange creature. It’s the most popular sport in the world in every respect, having the most participants and viewers. On the other hand it is one of the most controversial things you will ever encounter. Popularly known as being full of prima donnas only barely kept in check by their managers. Having spent my time as the manager of the Barnsley Dogs I’m going to tell you what I think about my latest job as the Lord of Football.
Let’s get a few things answered right now. Do pretty graphics interest you? What about humor? Pulling off combos? Exploration? Boss battles? How do you feel about chickens? Does the term “MetroidVania” pique your interest? Do you have a PS3 and/or a Vita? If you answered yes to any of those questions (minus the chicken one), go ahead and do your PSN library right by stocking a fresh copy of Guacamelee!
Bioshock Infinite is the next game of the franchise and also created by Irrational, the team behind the first Bioshock game. Set as far from the the underwater constraints of Rapture as possible, Infinite takes you to Colombia – an expansive, floating utopia in the sky. Having taken my time in Colombia I’m ready to tell you what I think.
Unless you live under a rock on the far side of the moon, you’ve no doubt caught wind of the new Sim City. To say that it’s had a troubled birth is the understatement of the year. It’s angered both fans and critics alike in so many ways that corporate sabotage would have been a likely candidate, if it wasn’t for us all knowing that the issues are results from decisions made on high. I’ve played it for over 100 hours and I’m ready to tell you what I think.
