Rainbow Six: Siege – Thoughts

Rainbow Six: Siege – Thoughts

Back in October, I got stuck into the Beta for Rainbow Six: Siege and thoroughly enjoyed it. There was a limited range of maps to play through, but I could already tell that this was shaping up to be a very good shooter. Now that I’ve had a chance with the full game, I am happy to confirm that Siege is a very good shooter, but one that needs to find its feet.

Subterfuge: The Verdict

Subterfuge: The Verdict

I’ve played a lot of Neptune’s Pride; the real-time strategy space-conquering game. It was an intriguing mix of alliances, tactics and downright betrayal played out over a tactical map where you controlled fleets, took-over worlds, and performed research into new techs and weapons. You were pitted against other human players and had to form truces or trade and technological alliances in a bid to come out on top. This often meant backstabbing and as this game was ‘real time’ (a fleet requiring 2 days to get somewhere actually took 2 days to get there…) it was not unheard of to get up at 3am to issue some orders for the perfect attack or betrayal. Yes I’ve done that and no i don’t regret it..

Books. Books. Boooooks.

Say any word often enough and it will lose all meaning. Go on, try it. I like to use 'blancmange'. Let's face it, if any word is going to lose all meaning after saying it more than a couple of times, 'blancmange' is a pretty good candidate. Blancmange. Blancmange. Blancmange.

Sony Need to Do More on Remote Play

Sony Need to Do More on Remote Play

You know what is great? The fact that this week, a developer known as Twisted is releasing a Remote Play app for the PC which will allow gamers to play the latest PlayStation 4 games from the comfort of their PC. It's going to be a great bit of kit, one that I'm sure Sony will quickly challenge, but it makes me wonder where the console giant is with this?

Football Manager 2016 – I Think I’ll Pass

Football Manager 2016 – I Think I’ll Pass

Sports franchises which see a yearly release often go through peaks and troughs in quality. It should be expected when you consider the limited development time on offer, but it is an important thing not to let a trough become a slide towards mediocrity. While I don’t think Sports Interactive are in danger of allowing their Football Manager series fall into terminal decline, their latest release feel extremely half-baked.

Destiny – My Year Two Adventure

Things have come a long way since August when I last wrote about Destiny as I've reached Level 40 and completed the bulk of the main story missions across both year one expansions, and of course, The Taken King. You know what? Despite some ups and downs, overall, I've enjoyed it. A hell of a lot.

EGX Hands On – Assassin’s Creed Syndicate

EGX Hands On – Assassin’s Creed Syndicate

When I was at EGX, I mentioned on Twitter that I hadn’t played anything from the Assassin’s Creed series since the high-seas action of Black Sails, but that was about to change as I was in the queue for Syndicate, the latest game in the series that will be taking us to Victorian London. I also took some fairly ropey photos of Ubisoft’s booth for the game, but that’s by-the-by. I played Syndicate at the show, not once, but twice. Both times, I was impressed.

EGX Hands On – Giant Cop

There was one game in the Rezzed indie game section at EGX that repeatedly caught my eye. I walked past the booth several times became ever more interested each time I saw it being played. Unfortunately, for a long while, the game was really busy with people spending a considerable amount of time playing it. I finally got a chance to play it, and from the moment the introductory video played, I knew I was playing a potential Game of the Show. That game? Giant Cop of course.

EGX Hands On With The Escapists: The Walking Dead

EGX Hands On With The Escapists: The Walking Dead

I was walking around the Rezzed section at EGX today, checking out all of the latest hip, cool and new indie games, when amongst the hordes of humanity, one little game stood out. Loud and proud, it proclaimed itself to be The Escapists: The Walking Dead. What was this I wondered? Could it possibly be some tie-in between The Escapists, a 8-bit pixel-art game about escaping from prisons (that I have woefully failed to write about) and The Walking Dead graphic novel which also features a prison along the way (as well as zombies of course)? I thudded myself down onto the plastic stool, picked up the Xbox One controller and set about checking it out.
