Warhammer 40,000 Regicide: Hands-on

Warhammer 40,000 Regicide: Hands-on

May 26, 2015

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

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;...

Kyn: Hands-On

Apr 20, 2015

Game code provided by the publisher I quite enjoy Kyn, you could say it’s Kyn-d of good (gosh, I sure hope the pronunciation makes that pun work). It’s been compared to Baldur’s Gate (and other Infinity Engine games) which it seems to takes some inspiration from. From what I played, it seems to be true in that combat and movement is much like those; but...

Killing Floor 2: hands-on

Apr 16, 2015

Game code provided by the publisher If you’ve played Killing Floor or perhaps even Red Orchestra, then you may have already had an inkling that Killing Floor 2 would be good and while we can only speculate on whether it will be in its entirety, the version soon to hit Early Access is something I’ve very much enjoyed and am already telling friends...

Blackguards 2: Hands-On

Blackguards 2: Hands-On

Dec 9, 2014

While I only recently picked up Blackguards and haven’t had a chance to put aside the time for it, I have had a chance to take a look at Blackguards 2. I’ve heard that the first game is quite unforgiving in how you develop your characters and that seems to be the case with this one too but, after that first hurdle of getting through ridiculously...
