Middle-Earth: Shadow of War

It has been a few years since the majority of the world was introduced to the world created by J.R.R. Tolkien. Since then, numerous games and more have been unleashed upon the world. This is Middle-Earth: Shadow of War. The sequel to Shadow of Mordor continues the tale of Talion -the human/spirit hybrid. In this installment, Talion creates a new ring of power that will either allow him to become a king, or to replace Sauron as the Dark Lord of Mordor. Unlike the previous game, Shadow of War will feature a more fluid action-adventure combat system instead of the traditional hack-n’-slash. Though the game will still be third-person. This game looks like a lot of fun, and it’s definitely worth […]

Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord

If, like me, you adore the Total War games, then you will have no doubt wondered what it would be like to play as a soldier on those glorious battlefields? Well, now you can. This is Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord, a prequel to Mount & Blade 2: Warband. Taking place in a semi-alternate world, the player takes on the role of a soldier fighting for one of eight factions. Now this fighting can take place upon vast open planes, in dense woodlands or as drawn out sieges. The player gets access to numerous mounts, armours and weapons. The game is set for release on PC at some stage this year.

Vampyr

Once more ,London is bathed in a thick fog, and is beset by dark forces that seem keen on wiping out numerous human lives. This is Vampyr. Dr. Jonathan Reid is a man split between two worlds. On the one hand, he is a man of medicine and compassion. He has spent years helping the sick and healing the injured. On the other hand, he is a vampire who thirsts for mortal blood. Now unlike other vampire games Vampyr gives you a semi-open world to hunt in. (Not that different, yet. -Ed) But this is where the game takes a drastic turn. Dr. Reid is unable to simply kill and feast at will. Instead he has to learn about his […]

Kingdom Come: Deliverance (Video Game)

Now a lot of people get their trousers moist the moment they hear that a new Fantasy game is coming out. There is something so endearing about wielding swords, firing arrows, and riding dragons. (Skyrim and co have entertained us for years. -Ed) But now something interesting has happened: someone has removed the fantasy element and given us a gloriously realistic Medieval RPG. This is Kingdom Come: Deliverance. The game has been produced by Warhorse Studios, and is their first official game -and it looks a monster. The game is set in the Kingdom of Bohemia (Now part of Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic) in 1403, where the player takes the role of a blacksmith’s son. The boy sees […]

Death Stranding

Question: What do you get when you take Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen throw them into a massive open-world environment that is filled with action, adventure and danger; and then get Guillermo del Toro to direct? Answer: One of the most anticipated games in history. This is Death Stranding. Right, so we know a good deal about this game. For one, there is going to be a multiplayer mode. I’m hoping it’s going to be a little like F.E.A.R 3, only better. The game is based around a short story written by Japanese master Kobo Abe (7 March, 1924 – 22 January, 1993). The game is the brainchild of Hideo Kojima -the master games maker from the amazing Kojima Productions who have […]

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 […]
