Ark: Survival Evolved – Xbox One Game Preview

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...

Wave of Darkness: Hands-on

Wave of Darkness: Hands-on

Aug 13, 2015

Game code provided by Developer Wave of Darkness is another Early Access title on Steam. It’s got a lot to do in it and it’s not too far off completion, depending on community feedback – which the developers, Dreamatrix, seem to be keeping a close eye on and are responding to fairly regularly on the forums. It’s got a lot on its plate and with it being...

Warhammer 40,000: Regicide is Chess but it is also a few other things – incomplete being the most important as it’s out in Early Access on Steam. Second most important is that it’s also got Chess-with-tactics gameplay as an alternate mode which will feature a Campaign – eventually. I’m a huge fan of Warhammer in both its fantasy and sci-fi...

Guild of Dungeoneering: Hands-on

May 8, 2015

Game code provided by PR Arguably, the best thing about pen and paper RPGs is the group of people you play with, closely followed by the fluid and dynamic nature of each game that builds as you go along. Whilst videogames have done a superb job of completely killing the social aspect of these games, they’ve done lots when it comes to mapping out your quest as...

Toren: Hands-On

Toren: Hands-On

Apr 21, 2015

Game code provided by the publisher Toren is an interesting game. It also looks to be both linear and story focussed, so I won’t give a full retelling of what I experienced and presume to be the opening to the game. Especially as what I played, I thought, could equate to a short game in its own right. Also, I’ve heard it has been compared to ICO;...
