Announced as a surprise at their E3 conference, Fallout Shelter is a simple base building game for IOS. Being a casual fan of the Fallout series, I downloaded the freemium game out of curiosity more than hope. Everyone else should immediately do the same.
Event Horizon released in 1997 is an interesting film. Completely stereotypical as far as space films go, it follows the typical story of a ship, lost in space, that has now been found and needs investigated. It has gained a cult following for a few reasons but in our opinion remains a mess of a film.
E3 is apparently going to let the public in this year. While it has been a life ambition of mine to attend the show, letting the general public into a games convention brings with it a number of problems. I looked back over my own experiences at Gamescom in Germany. Basically Gamescom is the European E3 and has three days open to the public. I found this small piece I thought up while crying to myself in a long queue. Despite being four years old, nothing changed in any subsequent years. If you are lucky enough to be going to E3, be warned.
It has been a long time coming. Slowly the effects of age, time and other factors have killed team deathmatch and competitive gaming for me. But how did this happen? Am I just getting old? Let’s look back over the phases of multiplayer gaming.
If like me you keep up to date with gaming and trends, you will be on the look out for anything coming out of Asia. You won’t have missed the sensation of Attack On Titan. The manga series created by Hajime Isayama which, is inspiring anime, games and more. The question is, what is Attack on Titan?
t’s fair to say CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher 3, has met with universal acclaim. The hype train was building since last year and it appears to have delivered receiving a few perfect scores from reputable sites like Gamespot. However, my first few hours with the game on PS4 left a very different impression on me, than what I expected.
After my review of Project Cars I thought it best to put this short video up, which shows the best bits, rather than focus on the negative. Enjoy It’s about 5 minutes.
Project Cars should really come with a disclaimer. This is not a racer to play for five minutes here and there. You definitely can’t have a few drinks and stick it on to unwind. Being a racing driver, kinda sucks. This isn’t for Vin Diesel, it’s for Ayrton Senna.
I wake up, the sun is shining, despite the warnings of a tropical storm I take out my whitest suit. Lighting my first cigar of the morning, I walk to my balcony to address the masses. I am El Presidente and this is Tropico 5 on PS4.
t’s time. I have lifted the PS4 version of GTA V. Having sunk most of late 2013 into Rockstar’s finest, enough time has passed to play the game as new again. It only gets better with age. But why does this game appeal to me at 32? Surely this is a game for aggressive teens.
Released in 1982, Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner, based on the short story by Philip K. Dick has achieved something more than its original purpose. Whether by chance or design Scott’s film has become akin to a study text in the influence a film can have on other creative mediums.
In case you missed it end of level bosses are back in a big way. With the success of Bloodbourne and the Souls series, the struggle, that existed since videogames began is alive and well. But what bosses do you remember most and why? Let’s take a longer look at some of the best and worst.
This is a post I made on the now defunct 1up.com. RIP. I think it is just as relevant today. It also lets me go back and fix my punctuation, now I am a bit older and slightly wiser. These five games have mechanics that put most modern games to shame.
If you play this game long enough, you will be a master at it. The question all these games have asked of me is the same. Are you willing to put the effort in?
Dying light is a game that takes inspiration from many sources although when you are stranded early in the game, at night, with no guns and facing a sprint across rooftops and under fences before you can feel safe, you struggle to see where developer Techland’s game is similar to others.
