New Heat Signature Trailer is Fun…and Space is Beautiful

New Heat Signature Trailer is Fun…and Space is Beautiful

It is always nice when you get to listen to a game developer talk about their game and really show some enthusiasm for their title. That is just part of the reason for why I am enjoying this Heat Signature video so much. The other reason is that the upcoming title from Tom Francis (of Gunpoint fame) just looks so damn good.

New Blitzkrieg 3 Trailers Show Off Destruction Tech

Don't you just hate it when you wake up to witness a fleet of tanks rumbling through your nearby forest, knocking down trees, destroying fences and then, once they reach the roads, crushing cars beneath their tracks like there is no tomorrow? If you don't hate that idea, then I have three videos that will be just what you need to see.

I Expect You’re Wondering Why I’ve Gathered You All Here.

I Expect You’re Wondering Why I’ve Gathered You All Here.

Ursula was dead. I couldn't be certain, but from the masses of vomit, the mysterious discolourations on her body, not to mention the fact that I'd just found half a bottle of poison left in a cupboard, I was pretty certain her demise was not the accident it appeared to be. No, this was murder, and as the resident Inquisitor it looked like it was up to me to sort it out.

Grand Theft Auto V Lands on The New Generation Tomorrow – Are You In?

Tomorrow is a big day in the world of the new generation machines. They'be both been selling by the bucketload, but apart from Halo: The Master Chief Collection and (a botched) DriveClub, they've been lacking on any exclusive title to set them apart with re-releases like The Last of Us Remastered making up the numbers. As we march our way through November, we are going to see if Grand Theft Auto V will bring the remaining few old-gen gamers over to the new world.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare – The (singleplayer) Verdict

Kevin Spacey, double-jumping and the (near) future. Yup, Call of Duty is back and better than ever. I've completed the singleplayer half of the game, I've enjoyed it, I've thought about many ways in which things could be improved and this is my Verdict.

Football Manager 2015 – The Verdict

Football Manager 2015 – The Verdict

I've been a long standing fan of the Football Manager series, stretching back to my debut with the games in their original Championship Manager incarnation. Each year, there is something of a debate about whether buying into the yearly releases is worthwhile. Most of the time, the answer is an easy "Yes", but with Football Manager 2015, I find myself unsure of whether this edition is a must buy.

Our Week in Games – Week 105

Our Week in Games – Week 105

It's that time of year when the big blockbusters launch ready for Christmas. I'm talking about games like Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed...sadly though, we will only be covering one of those games in the coming weeks. We weren't able to secure review code for Unity or Rogue here at The Reticule, so unless one of the team can afford to dig deep, they'll be on the back burner. In brighter news, I'll be having first thoughts on Advanced Warfare soon, while Kevin will be taking a crack at Dragon Age: Inquisition on the Xbox One.

With those few updates out of the way, let us get on with Our Week in Games.

The Old City: Leviathan – Launching December 1st

The Old City: Leviathan – Launching December 1st

I like to think that the first-person exploration genre started way back when with Half-Life 2: Lost Coast, though it can be argued that Valve's effort was more of a tech demo than a real stab at the exploration genre. The reality is that Dear Esther was the first such game, with titles such as Gone Home and Montague's Mount taking a stab at the alternative take on first-person action. They will soon welcome a new genre-mate as The Old City: Leviathan is due for release December 1st.

Dovetail Games Fishing – Get Casting in Early Access

I meant to drop a line about this last week, and I had thought about baiting in readers by giving the Early Access build a play...but yes, Dovetail Games Fishing launched on Steam's Early Access program last week. As my fishing puns are now depleted, please read on without fear.

Blitzkrieg 3 – Returning to War

Back in September, Nival, the guys who worked on Heroes of Might and Magiv V announced they were returning to their roots with the much loved strategy series Blitzkrieg. Sadly, I missed this announcement until this past weekend when a friendly British PR agency took over media duties and handily informed me of Nival's return to war.

Knights of Pen & Paper refuses to give up on Halloween

Who said Halloween should only be celebrated on the 31st October? What's that...everyone in the world? Well apparently nobody told Paradox Interactive as just last week they released a new Halloween themed update for Knights of Pen & Paper.

Lords Of Xulima – Early Access First Impressions

Back in November of 2013, Lords of Xulima closed a successful Kickstarter campaign to the tune of more than three times the $10,000 they initially asked for. I decided to take a look at the game in its final stages of Early Access and hopefully give you a good idea of what's on offer when the game releases very soon.

Stealth Inc 2 – The Verdict

There are some fantastic first-party games on the Wii U, but what is less talked about is the growing, and fantastic, range of indie titles that are available through the eShop. Steal Inc 2: A Game of Clones from Curve Digital (the guys who did Iron Fisticle) is just one of those games.

Our Week In Games – Week 104

In a rather strange series of news posts it became apparent that Ubisoft had removed all their new releases from Steam earlier this week. The reason why they felt they had to do this had not been fully discovered yet but the internet was rife with rumors of a fallout with Valve over the pricing of their games. Whatever the reason it seems to have sorted itself out as after a brief spell of wondering what to do with ourselves, the games magically appeared back on Steam.
