New Warframe update brings space combat, magical hat

Posted by on Oct 24, 2014

Warframe is really weird. Not because of all the strange alien creatures (including whatever your avatar is supposed to be), but because it’s a free-to-play game that...

Glitchspace: Hands-On

Posted by on Sep 9, 2014

Glitchspace excites me mentally. I love the idea of programming but didn’t really have the capacity to learn it or use it meaningfully. Glitchspace uses semi-simple...

New Warframe update brings space combat, magical hat

Oct 24, 2014

Warframe is really weird. Not because of all the strange alien creatures (including whatever your avatar is supposed to be), but because it’s a free-to-play game that doesn’t make you want to chew off your own elbows within 30 seconds of play. In fact, it’s rather good. Yes it’s crammed full of (hold your nose) microtransactions...

The first rule of Driveclub PSPlus edition…

Oct 21, 2014

Driveclub looks set to go down in the record books. Not in terms of sales (though it doesn’t seem to have done badly), and not in terms of critical acclaim (professional reception seems to average out at ‘lukewarm’). It currently holds the two somewhat embarrassing trophies that have emblazoned upon them in luminous metaphorical green...

Format: Vita Unleashed: Out Now Publisher: Marvelous Europe/Xseed Games Developer: Tamsoft Players: 1-4 Site: www.hanzonationalacademy.com/sksv/ From the moment you start Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus, it’s immediately apparent that it’s full of anime breasts and bums with a game placed somewhere beneath it all. Seriously, there are jiggle physics in...

This War of Mine: Hands On

This War of Mine: Hands On

Oct 10, 2014

This War of Mine is, quite frankly, shaping up very well in what it’s trying to do. It’s trying to show the effects of a war on the general populace rather than the standard macho soldier. What makes it even more interesting is that mechanically, it’s all about making hard choices. Every decision that you make will likely come back and bite you in one...

Format: PC Unleashed: Out Now Publisher: Wadjet Eye Developer: Grundislav Games Players: 1 Site: www.wadjeteyegames.com/games/golden-wake/ There’s a certain mystique to 1920s America, generally surrounded by the allure of the mob and the continued expansion that the nation was facing. There was a volatile mix of ingredients that make for some...

YouTube promotion Aragorn all wrong: There’s been a Mordor

Oct 7, 2014

We haven’t dipped our proverbial toes into the murky waters of “GamerGate” yet (perhaps that will change, as it’s not going away) but, nonetheless, even we can imagine certain wielders of the written word cackling with glee every time another piece of YouTube-flavoured PR shadiness falls out of the rotting woodwork. So what’s occurring? In...
