So we all know everybody was looking forward to Dark Souls II. Could you blame them? No, not really. Demon’s Souls was awesome, Dark Souls was awesome and if the reviews are to be believed, Dark Souls II is also awesome. This trailer is full of those scores and a nice, ominous, voice-over.
I’ll be the first to admit when I first saw the trailer for the Rambo game, I was intrigued. “I will play this,” I thought to myself “If only for a laugh”. Thankfully I never did dip into my generally empty wallet, taking away valuable booze money, because every bit of evidence points to the game being arse.
Thief is coming out soon. Another reboot of another classic franchise that may, or may not, be done justice. Will Thief be good or bad? That is the question that haunts us all, or just me. Well there’s enough material out there for me to be a git and decide if I think it’ll be good or not, let’s find out.
I like Spiders. Why? Well, they have ambition but you’re pretty much safe with them, look at about four different bits of information and you’ll pretty much know how a game is going to play – then you’re in it for the story. Bound By Blame has given us another bit of information in the form of a ‘video that covers everything’ and this means that we’ve probably got enough now to judge it.
Dragon Ball Z has always been an Animé/Manga with a staggering popularity, both in its native land of Japan and also overseas, particularly in the US and the UK. This popularity was always going to ensure a number of game adaptations, but what has also helped has been a number of strong games that have used the DBZ license well, particularly the Budokai Tenkaichi series. Is this another game doing the franchise justice, or is it one that doesn’t help at all? That’s what I’m here to find out.
Based on the mini game OMG-Z, OMG HD Zombies is a remake for the PS Vita that shows the developer had some things left on the table after releasing the original. To be as direct as the game is, I will say: download this game for your Vita if you like zombie games.
I’ve spent a bit of time in the past writing about Bound By Flame, the upcoming RPG by Spiders, the studio behind Of Orcs and Men and Mars: War Logs. Hell, it comes as no shock because I’m a sucker for these RPG’s and Spiders, while not having a record of making spectacular entries in the genre, are pretty consistent and improving. Well, new details on their next release, Bound By Flame, are up on the newly launched website for the game.
Dark Souls II is one of this years big games to keep a look out for, we’re all quite aware of that. So that means when a new trailer comes out, it’s worth having a look. Oh sure, we don’t get to see any gameplay, but we know what that’s going to be already. What we get to see is some brilliant monster designs.
So it’s the end of the year here in blighty. In about four hours the sky will be full of shiny lights and explosions, possibly with a few accidents that maim the young idiots that are using fireworks in ways that they are never meant to be used. We need less of this misery now, so let’s move onto happier moments and those moments are from my Game(s) of The Year.
I’m always a big fan of console games finally making their way to PC shores. This is because we PC folks are a friendly, accepting, group of people. We’re happy to accept all games of all genres, more so when they’re suited for our format of choice. However, at the same time we also don’t like to feel like we’re being fobbed off with badly thought out or shoddily optimized ports. Does Zombie Tycoon have the brains, or is it dead on arrival? Here’s what I think.
