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. […]

All Else Fails (Band Interview)

Today we speak to the minds behind All Else Fails. What’s the history of your band? We’re a metal band based in Edmonton AB, we just hit our ten year anniversary, and in that time we have put out 3 EPs, 2 LPs, 1 Live album, and 1 Live DVD. Also, we like beer, and don’t give a shit about the sub genres that everyone seems so butt-hurt about. What’s your musical history? (Trained or Amateur) We’ve all been playing for 15+ years, I don’t think I’d call us amateurs any more, one of us went to music school though. I’ll let you guess. So what can you tell us about your latest album? (Inspiration. Sound. Style.) It’s a bit […]

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 strangely 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 […]

Diablo: Rise of The Hunter

Today we speak to French-Canadian actor, Jean Drolet about his role in the new Diablo fan film “Diablo: Rise of The Hunter“. How did you get involved in Diablo: Rise of The Hunter? Well two, two years ago I was invited to a private screening by a young friend of mine Carlos Cobezas. He was the film Director and Stephanie Van Rijn Vincent (Valla) was the lead actress. A year passed liking each other’s postings until I’ve been invited to a scenario first reading of DIABO: ‘’Rise of The Hunter’’. There I met Amanda Lynn Petrin (Halissa) and Luc Godbout that became DIABLO’s Film Director. We repeat one scene or two to pin point meaning sand will and then there […]

The Bacon Battalion

What do you get when you combine RPG’S, cameras, bacon and YouTube? Perhaps one of the sexiest shows ever made. Welcome to the Bacon Battalion. Would you mind introducing yourself to the readers?

The channel is there to help geeks get more out of their game (role-playing). Basically it’s […]

Rise of the Tomb Raider

 

 I remember the first time I saw a Tomb Raider game, the year escapes me but it had to be around 1998, making me five years old. My mother had received the very first one’s collector’s edition on PC from my father because it featured Egypt and that was a theme that had her going bananas. I still have it today since she struggled too much and gave it to me, the box says “Tomb Raider: Unfinished Business”, and I have that game to thank for honing my gaming skills, even if I never did finish it either ironically. I knew back then when I crawled its badly pixelated hallways, caverns and corridors that it was something special that would […]

Brutal Legend

 

 There was a steam sale, And I wasn’t broke this time round, Among the clutter and crap, A game I wanted I found, It featured metal music, And an actor world renowned, Once I started playing, My inner metal head awoke at the sound. The Brutal Legend of Eddy Riggs is a tale as old as 2008 when this title released as a console exclusive, published by EA. In recent years it has been ported to PC, finally allowing me to embrace my eternal wish of becoming an axe swinging, guitar riff playing, hot-rod riding metal head that was sent by forces unknown so safe the world of metal. You play Eddy Riggs, voiced and modelled after a muscular Jack […]

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate

 

 Don’t you just hate it when the history books only tell half the tale? I mean who knows what we weren’t told. Maybe Hitler was fighting aliens disguised as people from a certain race, maybe Ghangus Khan was trying to build an army to fight the mole people, maybe the gangsters of 18th century England were trying to stop a race of futuristic pre-cursor people from enslaving us by using our fear of an exploding sun. Chew on that for a moment. Luckily there is an organization that still tells it like it is, and we can thank Ubisoft for their accurate account of history in their Assassin’s Creed series of video games. The latest of their incredibly factual entries […]

When Metal Gear Solid’s AI plays by the same rules

Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is a great game for a lot of different reasons, but when the AI of the enemy was affected by the same conditions and rules I was during general gameplay without it being scripted or a cut-scene, that was when I realised just how incredible this title really was. You might wonder what I am on about, so let me tell you a story. Admittedly a recorded video would have worked better but I didn’t have recording software running when this happened so I decided to recollect the events in short story format. I did dramatize it slightly for affect but that just makes the read better. It all started while Snake […]
