The Switch is an amazing new piece of gaming hardware that blends the home console with a portable gaming device. It is the perfect console for a young family that is both time poor and looking for games that don’t involve endless slaughter. It is the best way to access Nintendo’s IP which easily eclipses any other consoles exclusive offerings. It is so very much better than the WiiU.
A few weekends ago, my hopes and dreams were dashed. I participated in an MMO Beta weekend (which I was bound by an NDA not to identify), hoping against hope for my white whale – a game that revolutionised the MMORPG genre. While the beta was fun and flashy, it was nothing new. It had […]
Blizzard’s New Free-To-Play Card Game Coming Up Trumps. Ten years ago, and I couldn’t believe it was that long until I checked, Blizzard released their new MMO, World of Warcraft (WoW). WoW borrowed many aspects from contemporary MMO’s, streamlined them, polished them, made the genre more accessible and slapped their Warcraft IP across it. Needless […]
After my run in with the developers of Day Z (I mean Day Y!) I took a couple of weeks off. Time to collect my thoughts, look for a new target and let the burn marks heal. It had been confirmed, the dark world of Indie Games did indeed exist and it was far more […]
I am in two minds when it comes to Guild Wars 2 (GW2). The left side of my brain is immensely impressed with the near perfect execution of the new Massive Multiplayer Online Game (MMO), enjoying the way in which the title has collected existing MMO features and turned them into something very accessible. […]
My first memories of Grand Theft Auto (GTA) were playing GTA 1 & 2 on my school laptop when the teachers couldn’t see us in class. Flying through British streets in my Jaguar, gunning down all before me in what can only be described as good childhood fun. GTA3 coming out blew my mind. It […]
If you’re like me, you’ve flittered between MMORPG’s like a veracious junkie, always trying the new drugs but never finding yourselves satisfied. It all began with World of Warcraft and a confused Dwarven Hunter. Since then it has been Guild Wars, Lord of Rings Online, Eve, City of Heroes, Age of Conan, Star Wars the Old Republic […]
For most gamers, their gaming life revolves around the flashy titles of your EAs, THQs and Blizzards. AAA titles that you can find on the shelves at your local EB or read about in magazines. But hidden away in the shadows lies the obscure, sometimes frightening and often darker society of gaming. An underworld […]
The best thing I could say about The Secret World is that it makes you feel clever… or stupid, depending on whether you can solve the many clues put in your way. Sure, most people know that The Four Seasons was composed by Vivaldi, but it doesn’t make you feel any less of a genius for […]
A few weeks ago there was a very quiet shift in the online gaming scene, barely noticed but highly significant. The latest instalment of the Tribes franchise, Tribes: Ascend (Tribes), was released for open beta. Free-to-Play Tribes is essentially the latest in a long line of free-to-play multiplayer games. It takes the standard pay-or-play format, […]
