Bloodborne – Prepare your Souls for death again

 

 Stop me if you’ve heard this before; you creep down a long dark passage, then you die. Some undead, moth eaten thing jumps out, then you die. You take a corner and you die. You breathe, you die. If Demon’s Souls, Dark Souls or Dark Souls 2 comes to mind, you are partially right. What I described was the next title From Software has been developing for all you masochists out there, titled Bloodborne. Don’t let the lack of the word “Soul” fool you into thinking this game isn’t another entry to the series, it looks, sounds and even smells like the other three entries, yes it reeks of the one million and two rotting corpses the in-game creatures have […]

BAD (Battle Arena Drones)

Today we speak to Travis Bulford about Celestial Games upcoming masterpiece, BAD (Battle Arena Drones). What inspired you to make BAD (Battle Arena Drones)? We have been toying with the game concept for years. We always loved Decent II getting far more enjoyment out of the freedom a 6axis game gives you. So one night I was tiered of all the other things I was working on so I started a prototype. How long did BAD (Battle Arena Drones) take to create? The initial build was really quick but that’s been all but thrown out for new code and assets. We have spend about 3 months working on the new version. Its far more solid and much neater and has […]

Overwatch

 

 “We’ve heard from our female employees, and even my daughter calls me out. We were looking at old Warcraft stuff on YouTube, a cinematic, and my daughter is like, ‘Why are they all in swimsuits?’ And I’m like ‘Ugh, I don’t know, honey. I think we’re clearly in an age where gaming is for everybody, we build games for everybody. We want everyone to come and play. Increasingly, people want to feel represented, from all walks of life, boys and girls, everybody. We feel indebted to do our best to honour that.” – Metzen. This weekend Blizzard Entertainment, at it’s annual BlizzCon, blew everyone’s minds when they announced their next game production would not be part of any of it’s […]

.5:The Gray Chapter Prieview

 

 .5:The Gray Chapter is the 5th Studio album by US band SlipKnoT. Released worldwide on 21 October 2014 this is their first album release in six years, and the first not to feature deceased bassist Paul Gray (whom the album title is an ode to) or  drummer Joey Jordison, who parted ways with the band in 2013. The album contains a balance of the melodic style of newer albums, but also incorporates the harder more brutal style of the Iowa era. The pain the band suffered from the loss of Paul is evident in the sombre tone of the album, as well as Corey Taylor’s emotional lyrics. The emotional track Goodbye and the frustrated Skeptic are both clear tributes to […]

Dying Light – Grand Mirror’s Island

 

 When you combine the urban world and mission structure of Grand Theft Auto, the fluid parkour mechanics and melee combat from Mirror’s Edge and the crafting system and rotting corpses from Dead Island, you get Techland Studios’ upcoming title: Dying Light. It looks incredible, so incredible in fact, that I can’t believe it is yet another zombie title. Dying Light is set to release 30 January, 2015, meaning until then we have to rely on the word-of-mouth of those who played it at rAge, what we can deduce from trailers and what the official website says (since those never lie or exaggerate) to debate whether it will be any good or not. So what have we learned thus far? You […]

Top 5 Classic Horror Movies.

 

 On this, the first day of Halloween week, we celebrate all things visually stimulating and decaying. And by that we mean films. To be precise, classic horror films. Films so old their stars, writers, producers and everyone involved in them have long since shaken off their mortal coils. Nothing on this list was made after 1940. The Mummy: (1932) This fantastic film was produced by Universal Studio and starred the legendary Boris Karloff (The Last of the Mohicans 1920, Isle of the Snake People 1971) and is the inspiration for the 1999 Brendan Fraser movie of the same name. The plot, though similar to the 1999 remake, varies a little as the newly risen mummy, Imhotep, seeks to find reincarnated […]

Hey now Santa, where are my games?

 

 “Good day Santa, no, that won’t work. Yo happy fatty! I think he’ll hate me. Howdy saint Nick… Whatever, listen up. I’ve been a very good (looking) kid this year and thus I demand you cover the area under my tree with the gift of my choice, GAMES!” Now while I doubt a letter to Santa this early in the year will be of use, I recently realized how many games I want. I then decided to compile a list of games I really, really want (if any of you readers are feeling generous). While the list is actually much longer and would give Santa consecutive heart attacks, this is the scaled down version comprised of my deepest desires, relating […]

Renoized: I Am Your Sin

 

 We recently interviewed British band Renoized where they mentioned that they were planning on releasing an album in conjunction with our friends at  Juggernaut Music Group in the near future. Well, the future is here in the form of their 13 track album, I Am Your Sin. Renoized – “I Am Your Sin” The first kick is fast and aggressive and while you’re down on the ground reeling from this savage assault, the album continues to kick you in the happy sacks. This antagonistic album typifies Renoized! The songs on this excellent album move quickly and with a purpose that is as subtle as a brick to the face. Tracks like I Am Your Sin , I’m Your God and […]
