Gang Beasts Online: hands-on

Gang Beasts Online: hands-on

May 16, 2016

While multiplayer brawler Gang Beasts has enjoyed success in the living room since its Early Access release in 2014, fans have been clamouring for a way to throw their more physically distant friends into meat grinders and off oil rigs via an online mode. Boneloaf have finally begun to implement such functionality in Gang Beasts Online Beta, and we’ve had...

Eisenhorn: Xenos – hands-on

Eisenhorn: Xenos – hands-on

Apr 18, 2016

Eisenhorn: Xenos is another of the multitude of Warhammer Fantasy and 40K games that has rather suddenly appeared (which is brilliant) as Games Workshop seems to be struggling a little in the physical world (which isn’t so brilliant). This time the license is based on a book (Eisenhorn Xenos, funnily enough) rather than being its own new-fangled story and...

I’m not anti-survival game per se, but I do find that they don’t generally hold my attention – especially when in Early...

Ark: Survival Evolved – Xbox One Game Preview

Jan 7, 2016

Game code provided by the publisher At just one penny shy of twenty eight quid, Ark: Survival Evolved is pretty expensive for a game that’s not even finished yet (and remember, this early access thing is still a relatively new concept to console gamers, if you don’t count Bethesda games). How does the unfinishedness manifest itself here? The frame...

Blade & Soul: hands-On

Blade & Soul: hands-On

Dec 15, 2015

Game code provided by the publisher NCSoft’s Blade & Soul isn’t exactly a new game; since 2012, the game has seen successful releases throughout the Asian territories beginning with South Korea, so you might be scratching your head as to why the game would warrant a preview rather than a review. The answer is simple: The MMORPG is finally headed...
