A Few New Games

Another day, another list of games to go through. Yooka-Laylee: I adore platform games. There is something wonderful in running around like a loon, jumping over enemies, and scrambling over the environment. Case in point, Team 17 has recently unleashed a mental platform game upon the world. Welcome to the madness that is Yooka-Laylee. Cuphead: Now we’ve been waiting for this game for a couple of years; and now, after an eternity of semis, we shall finally get our hands upon the indie run-and-gun we’ve needed. Produced by Canadian’s Chad and Jared Moldenhauer this game -taking a lot of inspiration from 1930’s cartoons- revolves around a Cuphead, a character who has to fight a number of vicious enemies in order […]

Metro: Exodus

Well, E3 has come and gone, and in its wake we have been left a veritable smorgasbord of new games, technology and esoteric concepts. (MMO’s confuse Raven. -Ed) Now one of the games that has truly moistened a few pairs of Morph-Man’s britches is the long awaited sequel (Third in the series! -Ed) to the amazing Metro 2033 and Metro: Lastlight. This is *Insert drum roll here* Metro: Exodus. Now for those that have not played the Metro series let me give you a little background information. The games are based on the best selling novel series from Russian author Dmitry A. Glukhovsky, in which, as usual, the world has gone to pot and a small number of survivors are […]

Elex

I adore the Fallout series. I equally adore Skyrim. (Oblivion was good, but could have been better. -Ed) I also love open world games. So you can imagine how excited I was when I found out about a game that combines all the best elements of these games and then takes it up a notch. This is the mouthwatering ELEX. From what we know of this upcoming game it seems as if we are going to be in for another long-haul adventure that is going to take many, many months to complete. Now the game takes place in the future on a decimated world where the player is thrown into the middle of a war for precious and powerful resources […]

Fortnite

Now I do not know about you, but I thoroughly enjoyed Team Fortress. It was a brilliant game. I got such a kick out of building defences, using unique abilities, blowing Raven off of a bridge three-dozen times. Ah, happy days. Now another thing I’ve enjoyed is fighting off waves of monsters and undead creatures, with the aid of my friends. And watching Raven get blown off of a bridge. So it should come as no surprise to you that when I found out about Epic Games, forthcoming project ‘Fortnite‘ I was blown away… like Raven, off a bridge. Now the reason I am excited about this game is quite simple: It has large nipples covered in cream-cheese. No! That […]

RTS games you should and shall play (2017)

I adore RTS (Real Time Strategy) games. I do. There is something wonderful about unleashing vast armies against your foes and indulging in a little intergalactic slaughter. Total War: Arena Now the first game on my list is an upcoming free-to-play monster created by the Creative Assembly. In this game, you and nineteen! YES! 19! You and nineteen others get a few units each with which to engage in absolute and total bloody warfare over a number of unique battlefields! Battlefleet Gothic: Armada The second game on my list came out last year. I’m more than a little surprised that it has not received as much attention as it should have. Set in the Warhammer 40K universe the game allows […]

GAMES!

I adore video games. Now this yeas, 2017, promises to be a year for some amazing video games. Let’s have a look at some of them. The Surge (It is out by now. This article was written a few weeks back. -Ed) This looks like an amazing game. From what we know of it the game combines RPG elements with unique combat experience (you use an exoskeleton suit) to help you combat across a dystopian world. Star Trek: Bridge Crew Now here’s a game for Wookiee. In this Star Trek game you and a group of “friends” take command of a Starfleet ship and engage the Klingons in a punch up or two -that is assuming you’re not beating your […]

Robo Recall (Game Preview)

Gaming. Gaming. Gaming. Gaming. Gaming. (I do hope you’re making a note of all this. -Ed) I adore video games. Mostly computer based ones. But I am open -and a little aroused- by new and interesting games on wonderfully unique platforms. Now many of you will have heard of the Oculus Rift and its groundbreaking “virtual reality” technologies. With these new ways of playing video games has come, obviously, a whole plethora of new video games. Now the one that has whet many appetites of late is Robo Recall. GAME FACT: You need an Oculus Touch to play the game. Now the game is set in the future, obviously, and revolves around a new and exciting robot technology that goes […]

Mass Effect: Andromeda (Game Review)

 

 “Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more.” -William Shakespeare (Henry V). I will admit this at the beginning: I was not looking forward to the new Mass Effect universe. Call it an attack of nostalgia or a case of narrow-mindedness, if you wish. I care not. I am simply stating that the idea of another Mass Effect game seemed to me to be nothing more than a case of Bioware milking itself and its creation for every ounce of its worth. That said, on discovering their plans for the game, my mood was somewhat improved. Indeed, I was glad that they did not simply carry on with another Commander Shepard story line, or indeed remain in Shepard’s galaxy. […]

Werewolf the Apocalypse comes to PC.

Back in October 2015 when White Wolf Studios were acquired by Paradox interactive, we all began wondering if Paradox would start churning out a plethora of branded games in the franchise. Skip to The beginning of 2017, and turns out we were both right and wrong. A new game is coming, but┬ástrangely enough it will in fact be developed by Cyanide (Blood Bowl 2, Game of Thrones, Call of C’thulu) and published by Focus Home Entertainment. Those of you who know me will know I adore White Wolf Studio’s Vampire The Masquerade, possibly beyond what you could call healthy levels. However this time round instead of the MMO Vampire the Masquerade, or Bloodlines 2 we were all expecting (read: hoping […]
