It was two years ago that I first laid sight on Shadowhand from Grey Alien games. It was at EGX, and I said at the time that it was a card game I could get behind, with a combination of RPG elements and solitaire style action. To celebrate the confirmation of the 7th December release date, a new trailer has been released. Hooray!
I’ve been checking out Wulverblade as part of my desire to get stuck into some of the gems that are coming out on the Switch. I will be bringing you all my Verdict of this side-scrolling beat-em-up…just once I’ve managed to get past the second level. The game is a bit tough, but the good news is that developers Fully Illustrated are working on an easy mode!
Why yes, I have always wanted to play a game about being an cantankerous goose – how kind of you to notice.
Day one of EGX 2017 is done! This year, I’m only doing two days at the show, any more would be excessive, especially as the ratio of games to other stuff seems more skewed to other stuff than ever before. e-Sports, Twitch and other gubbins take over the majority of the show floor, and in some ways games seem like an after though. But, it is EGX, and I’m doing my usual boots on the ground report of what I’ve…
I’ve been playing a bit of F1 2017 recently, mainly in between sessions of Destiny 2 or Dishonored 2, and it’s proving to be a splendid game, one where I’ve finally found a way to play, and enjoy, what is a great racer.
I’ve had a bit of a gaming itch that I’ve been unable to scratch ever since I finished FTL. You see, I’ve wanted a game where you manage a base or ship, with crew/people to move around and big guns to fire at other people. Try as I might I couldn’t find any game that got that mix of strategy, management, random elements and KABLOUEY right (it’s a word…).
Mode 7 Games, fresh off publishing the well received Tokyo 42 have today announced they are working with Codebyfire to publish The Colonists, a settlement building game inspired by classic titles like The Settlers and the Anno series. The Colonists will be launching on Early Access in August, so not long to wait to see what it is all about.
I will resist making any jokes about Half-Life and something called Chapter Three in the same sentance. It’s been done elsewhere, and I think it does a disservice to A Place in the West, the comic created by Ross Joseph Gardner and Michael Pelletier, a fantastic piece of work that Valve kindly allowed to bear the official Half-Life IP commercially. The new third chapter entitled The Pit will release on Steam on Friday 21st July for $1.99/£1.49.
Big news for all of those of you who want to behold kickmen as Behold the Kickmen, coming from Size Five Games’ Dan Marshall, will be released on July 17th. That’s not far away for all of your beholding to start taking place. In typical Trump Dan Marshall fashion, he confirmed the release date on Twitter. Fitting, as Kickmen was “born of out Twitter nonsense”.
Welcome to The Reticule’s definitive roundup of gaming releases throughout July 2017. All release dates stated are for the EU, across all currently available platforms including Playstation, Xbox, PC, mobile and others.
Have you been waiting for new Tokyo 42 GAMEPLAY action? The recent trailer, which sneakily reveals the release date of the PC and Xbox One versions of the game as being the 31st May, is full of it! Check it, and more GAMEPLAY, out after the break.
Production Line, the upcoming car-factory tycoon game from Positech Games is progressing nicely through development and will be appearing on Steam Early Access on the 18th May.
It’s been a while coming, but Dovetail Games have finally revealed the first details about Flight Sim World which will be landing on Steam Early Access in the coming weeks. While it was originally due to be known as Dovetail Games Flight Simulator and releasing last year, Dovetail have clearly been busy behind the scenes working to ensure the new title is ready to meet the high expectations of fans.
The fine folks at Paradox Interactive have been busy, as ever, working on the next expansion for Hearts of Iron IV along with an associated large free update to the base game. Death or Dishonor is being termed a Country Pack, somewhat less than a full expansion like last year’s Together for Victory which massively expanded and overhauled how the Commonwealth nations played. Death or Dishonor is focusing on central Europe, introducing National Focus trees for four nations.
Late last year I wrote about Clone Drone In The Danger Zone, a short but already extremely enjoyable demo about robots clashing in ferocious gladiatorial combat. Since then, the developer Erik Rydeman has been discussing recent additions that have dragged me excitedly back in.
