Tokyo 42 – The Verdict

Tokyo 42 – The Verdict

It’s here, at long last, my Verdict on Tokyo 42, a game I seem to have been wittering on about for anywhere between 4.2 seconds and 42 years. This shooter/stealther/cat game has been thoroughly enjoyable to play, even if it can be devilishly hard at times.

Musings on The Surge

Musings on The Surge

I’ve been dabbling with The Surge this week, the new Dark Souls-meets sci-fi title from Deck 13 and Focus Home Interactive. It’s fun, but it also reminds me of why I don’t get along with the Dark Souls series. It’s just too damn hard for me to enjoy! This isn’t a Verdict, it’s just some brief musings.

Oxygen Not Included – Early Access Impressions

Oxygen Not Included – Early Access Impressions

Klei Entertainment have made some fine games over the years, everything from the Shank series of side-scrolling brawlers, to stealthy turn-based strategy Invisible Inc. Their latest game, Oxygen Not Included which has recently launched on Steam Early Access is somewhat more akin to the brilliant Don’t Starve in that you are trying to keep alive in an alien environment, focusing on the essentials at first to survive, before turning to the nicetities that you have always wanted.

Hellion: Preview

Hellion: Preview

Every so often you get access to something in the early stages of development  that has the potential to be big, really big. Hellion is just that; it has potential. Whether it lives up to that potential is one thing, but so far, it’s promising. Hellion is, well let’s just say it- a Star Citizen style survival game with Rust-like mechanics. That’s lazy of me yes, but now you know exactly what I’m talking about so I can focus on…

Flight Sim World – First Details

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.

Hearts of Iron IV: Death or Dishonor Detailed

Hearts of Iron IV: Death or Dishonor Detailed

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.

Back In The Zone

Back In The Zone

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.

Half-Life A Place In The West – Chapter #2 Released

Half-Life A Place In The West – Chapter #2 Released

Last September, a comic known as A Place in the West appeared on Steam. An unofficial bridge between the events of Black Mesa and City 17, the story started to explore what would have happened to the those living through the Combine takeover. Now, after Valve granted the team use of the official Half-Life IP, Chapter #2 is now available on Steam as a £1.59 slice of DLC. A very good price for a 50-page comic I must say. Hit the break for more…

To many casual sports fans, there is only one form of motorsport, that being Formula 1. The truth is, when you look past Formula 1, there is a whole world of different types of motorsport to enjoy. Motorsport Manager has so far focused on open wheel action with their in-game pyramid leading to their in-game equivalent of Formula 1. They are ready to expand their view of the motorsport world with an upcoming slice of DLC that will include GT racing.
