Good news everybody! The Signal From Tölva, the upcoming sci-fi open-world shooter from Big Robot is nearly with us! Coming out on Monday 10th April, I’m a teeeny, tiny bit excited for it! I played it at EGX last year and loved it, and the most recent trailer advertising the release date just builds up the excitement.
We love Mode 7 Games here at Reticule Towers, and we don’t need much reason to proudly proclaim our love for them. So here we are today with two videos to share with you, one from Tokyo 42 and the other from Frozen Synapse 2! Hit the break to check them out.
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…
I’ve learnt something today, don’t expose yourself to cops! Certainly not in Tokyo 42, they’ll kill you as soon as they get the opportunity if they see you. The Cop Drop mini-game has been shown off in a new video narrated by Paul Kilduff-Taylor from publishers, Mode 7 Games. It’s a bit fun, check it out below.
I first took a look at upcoming immersive sci-fi sim HEVN back in December at part of the #FiveForFive series which included a hands-on preview and Q&A with Larry Johnson and Mat Matthews from developers, Miga. Right now we have a new teaser trailer for this game that is inspired by luminaries like System Shock and Deus Ex.
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.
Recent events have brought the simple act of punching Nazi’s in the face back to the forefront of popular culture. It is somewhat good timing that Sniper Elite 4 is coming out now.
For many years, anthologies had largely disappeared from modern entertainment, only recently coming back to prominence with shows like True Detective and American Horror Story. Now, we are getting an anthology in the gaming world, and fittingly it is called Anthology.
Since I last talked about the latest American Truck Sim goings on in December, I have actually spent some time with the game, and have learnt to appreciate the elegance and simple joys that come with the Truck Sim games. The American adventures I’ve had so far have been a pleasure, the whole game seems more diverse, and the trucks the Yanks use are just beasts when compared to our puny European models. The good news is that the boys at SCS Software aren’t…
Cliff Harris of Positech Games (think Democracy and Gratuitous Space Battles) fame has been busy working on his new game for quite a while in the background while working on the publishing behind Political Animals and Big Pharma. The new game is Production Line, and Cliff has just confirmed that pre-orders are open with Alpha access the treat at the end of the tunnel.
I had a welcome surprise when I booted up Battlefield 1 this morning, and checked out the in-game news feed. EA were sharing details of a recently released custom game mode known as Back to Basics. It’s what the game has been calling out for.
This past week saw GameInformer drop a massive article charting Andrew Reiner’s longstanding quest to unearth information from Valve on the latest goings on with their most famous franchise, Half-Life. What emerged was a lengthy interview with an inside source, which pretty much confirms that Half-Life is all but dead. The article though prompted me to revisit an old home – valvetime.net, or as it used to be know, halflife2.net. What did I find? An interesting article looking at Half-Life Decay.
Somehow, I haven’t talked about the greatness that will be Tokyo 42 since my EGX 2016 reports. That’s exceedingly poor form on my behalf as this is a game that I have high hopes for. The good news is, there is a new trailer that I have embedded below.
With horrendous memories of 2016 still fresh in our minds, I thought I’d start 2017 off on a more positive note by highlighting a little interactive Twine adventure that made me smile.
It’s New Year’s Eve, and about time that I finished my series of entries in Our Year in Games. Through the first two parts of my chatter, I covered games from the last couple of years that I had spent quite some time playing this year, while in Part Three I covered three highlights from games released this year. Now, I have three further games released in 2016 that I want to talk about. Hit the break dear reader for musings on Battlefield…
