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...

If Seán convinces you to lay down some moolah, it can be purchased from them here.  The Tritton Kunai for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita is a reasonably good headset.

Format: 3DS Unleashed: Out Now Publisher: Nintendo Developer: Level-5 Players: 1 Site: https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Games/Nintendo-3DS/Fantasy-Life-899654.html When you think about it, RPGs tend to have a very narrow view of the world. Generally speaking, you’re the guy or gal (but usually guy) who goes out and kills things, and… that’s about...

Warlocks: Hands-On

Sep 22, 2014

  Warlocks is a promising looking Kickstarter; it even has a promising demo available as well. They also had an Alpha build that I was lucky enough to have a go with. It’s more or less a 2D action brawler that is quite heavily influenced by Risk of Rain. It has multiple unique characters, each with unique skills and fighting styles. It’s also...

Bedlam: Hands-on

Sep 19, 2014

Playing games within games may sound a little too Inception-like for some, but in the case of Bedlam it’s more like a playable history of FPS games. And with lessons to learn like rocket jumping, health bars and gunning down waves of cyborgs, what’s not to like? If the title sounds familiar, you might know of the book of the same title written by British...

Band Saga Kickstarter Needs Help to Hit the Road

Sep 17, 2014

Band Saga; you’d easily be able to forgive yourself for assuming that tis a Kickstarter for a chiptune album but that’s actually one of the finished aspects of this game. It’s a “Musical Action Roguelike” which sounds not unlike Beat Hazard (which is great btw) but judging by the videos and screenshots, it looks more like an isometric Binding of...
