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.
The first expansion for Hearts of Iron IV is coming on the 15th December, and will radically shake up how the major members of the British Commonwealth play. Together for Victory will significantly change the game for Canada, Australia, New Zealand, The Raj (India) and South Africa with further knock-on effects to how Factions work in the game overall. Hit the jump for more information.
Paradox’s grand strategy game Europa Universalis IV is one of those games which keeps on giving with the new Common Sense expansion coming today along with a massive update to the base game which fundamentally changes how siege warfare works. It looks like a great set of free and paid-for changes. There’s even a video to show off what Paradox have been up to!
I haven’t dived into the wide open world of European Truck Simulator 2 for quite a while, and once I clear up some of my seemingly endless backlog, I’ll have to climb back into my Scania and take to the road. What’s better, once I hit the road, I’ll be able to explore Scandinavia.
It took me a while to get into Europa Universalis IV when I played it last October, it was only once I turned to online play that things fell into place and I understood what the game was all about. With the Art of War DLC pack, I knew straight away what I wanted to do – dive into the Thirty Years War as one of the German states and cause some chaos.
Paradox Interactive have had a busy week of Gamescom announcements and media blasts with a new trailer for Hearts of Iron IV leading the way. They followed that up by announcing Cities: Skylines, an expansive sequel to the Cities in Motion series with first details on expansion to Europa Universalis IV and Crusader Kings II then being revealed. Read on for the roundup.
In our continued attempts here at Reticule Towers to be perceived as a legitimate emporium of games journalism, we are again eschewing the notion that E3 is all anyone cares about when the big show is taking place. I mean, don’t people want to know a little bit about the latest European Truck Simulator 2 news? I for one, most certainly do. Hit the break for the low-down.
It is Super Bowl weekend, and while I was thinking about the upcoming big game last week, I found myself dreaming of making a game. I dreamt bout making an NFL management game, only to have my dream dashed against the rock when Out of the Park Developments announced they were working on their own game. Maybe I’ll take a look when it is out in the distant future, it might be as addicting as Football Manager.
There is another NFL related story to link to before we get on with Our Week in Games. Some enterprising soul has taken Madden NFL and played havoc with the teams contesting the Super Bowl. I’ll embed a video after the break, but I strongly recommend you check out the full article.
I am odd. A rare flower in the game-journo garden of cynicism and critique – I actually liked Bioshock Infinite. Oh, I’m fully aware of the myriad of reasons people had issues with the game, but none of that stopped me enjoying its quirky, broken and in some places utterly bonkers plot, its enjoyable combat system and the beautiful flying city of Columbia. Burial at Sea is Infinite’s latest DLC, set in the far more popular underwater locale of Rapture. It’s fun, confusing and criminally short.
The slightly puzzled verdict that follows is slightly spoilery of Bioshock Infinite, you have been warned…
Since I moved into my flat I haven’t had as much spare time to devote to my trucking career as I would have liked and I have seen some major changes take place to my beloved European Truck Simulator 2..
Rome II is the game that just keeps on giving, though admittedly a stream of updates was to be expected following the initial launch which was greeted with shouts of anger and frustration about bugs and poor balancing. Things have certainly come a long way with five major patches having been delivered thus far and more certainly on the way.
We haven’t only seen patches though as the game has been changing with more than just bug fixes.
It is time for more of Our Week in Games as the football transfer window approaches last orders, the kids get ready to go back to school and the end of year big hitting games get ever closer to launch. That’s right, we are now in September, a month where we will see Rome II and Grand Theft Auto V launch. You can see the latest GTA trailer after the break before we get down to business.
The guys over at SCS Software have confirmed the name and a host of images for their upcoming DLC pack for European Truck Simulator 2. The DLC pack which has just entered the final stages of Beta testing will be known as Going East and will feature a massive expansion of roads and cities in Eastern Europe.
The Indy 500 is this weekend along with the Monte Carlo Grand Prix and the Champions League final. Only one of these major sporting events is coming to a game as DLC, that is the Indy 500 which will appear in GRID 2 either as DLC or pre-order content with amazon.co.uk. GAME has a Brands Hatch bonus offer while Steam is going with a pre-order rewards system. It all gets a bit confusing and frankly, to me it this retailer exclusive pre-order bonus content is a bit naff. That’s a rant for another time though as you can just sit back and dream of what might be as you watch an Indy car race around Indianapolis. Beware, GRID 2 isn’t indie.
The question that I am left wondering after completing The Knife of Dunwall, the first story based DLC for Dishonored is as follows. Is it worth you spending £7.99 to go back to the city of Dunwall for three missions. I’ll try my best to answer that question in this Verdict. Don’t even think about reading this unless you have finished Dishonored.
