It’s timely. The full trailer for Terminator:Genysis (bad spelling, bad) comes out, Stephen Hawkin’s himself comes out and warns against the potential machine threat and then DoveTail Games Fishing enters it’s second phase of Steam’s early access. It’s the start of the end people, and it all begins with Fish A.I.
Jump to the cut for an explanation (of sorts…)
I’ve been playing Valkyria: Chronicles to give you our verdict on the recent PC release. So that’s what I did. So what do we have? Well it’s (really) bad port and has an anime style that while I have no issue with, doesn’t exactly get me excited either. Oh and OH SO MUCH EXPOSITION. Seriously, there’s a lot of talk about flowers. And goat poo. I’m not even making that up. Yet… I’ve grown, step by inexorable step, to love this game.

Our intrepid leader forwarded a press release onto me the other day and it piqued my interest enough to want to pass it on to you, our dear, highly intelligent and obviously beautiful readers…. It’s a card trading game called Coraabia and its out now. Jump to the cut for some info on this intriguing title.
Imagine my surprise when I logged into Steam, only to find that my brother had been playing Evolve. This surprise was further compounded when I saw it was in my library. The penny then dropped; I wasn’t special, or chosen….it was simply an open Alpha. Jump to the cut to find my thoughts on the game as it is.
Wow. Well we get sent things, and I wasn’t even aware that this title was coming (ostensibly as it’s currently Wii U only), but my word does it look fun. Stealth Inc 2: a Game of Clones (see what they did there) is a metroidvania-style platform puzzler with open (2d) world aspects that make it an entirely intriguing prospect. It’s also utterly gorgeous.
Come one, come hither, BandaiNamco games have released a new bevvy of screens for their upcoming title, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, to stalk the internet. And probably you.

Star Conflict is a space based-arcade-MMO-deathmatch-spaceship game. Think World of Tanks in space, with snippets of story and you honestly won’t be far off. It is clear that this game owes a huge debt to WoT, the similarities are in places, striking, but it mostly holds it’s own and manages to come across as a separate entity. This is no mean feat.
Read on after the cut to find out what I think.
A post nuclear apocalyptic wasteland. Sound familiar? It’s a theme that has been quite literally nuked to death, left to fester, and then played on. Fortunately though, Wasteland 2 is the successor to one of THE original post apocalyptic games. Hit the break to find out my early impressions of the Early Access build.
RetroBooster is an early-access title by ReallySlick where you pilot your ship around a number of levels trying to rescue survivors while avoiding/engaging an increasing alien threat. It is quite a pretty game, find out after the cut whether it lives up to the gorgeous visuals.
You’ve got to love the gaming exhibition season. There’s the sense of excitement, the feeling that everything has been building up to this one, last moment, a chance to show your title in the best light. It’s also the time of year when you start getting told about the titles you’ll be playing at the end of this year, beginning of the next. Chris has already attended the Welsh Game Dev Show earlier this year while Kevin will be attending the Scottish equivalent soon. Right now though I want to share some words on the Play Expo…
Recently I’ve been looking back at a number of the titles I’d missed first time around and i’ve playing a lot of Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space, a space exploration game by Digital Eel. Find some words after the cut.
Spider-tank, Spider-tank, does whatever a spider-tank does…
I’ve somehow managed to open this piece without even mentioning dogs or the watching thereof; welcome to a brave new world people! Find out what I think about Watch_Dogs after the cut.
I’ve always found E3 to be a peculiar beast and I still question it’s relevance given the internet’s always on, always now capabilities, but I guess you’ve got to give the PR guys ‘n’ gals a day out occasionally. That said, there were a few titles that immediately piqued my interest. Check them out after the break.
I’ve been playing a lot of The Last Tinker: City of Colours. As is often the case when you don’t get to play a title pre-release you can see a lot of other reviews pop-up and if you’re not careful they can colour your impression of a game. Almost without exception the reviews have been positive, great even in some cases. Is this the first exception….read on for my Verdict.
We look at each other across the bloody and disorientating mess that the battlefield has devolved into.
He casually raises his shield and then bows. I bow in return. There is a brief almost serene pause (punctuated slightly by a wounded-man running between us) and then we charge.
Who’d have thought it with all the looting and pillaging; Vikings are sticklers for etiquette, at least this is the case in War of the Vikings.
