Hardcore Football Sim, Behold the Kickmen Goes Dystopian

Hardcore Football Sim, Behold the Kickmen Goes Dystopian

If you haven’t heard yet, there’s a hardcore football simulator coming out in the nebulous “soon”, and it goes by the name Behold the Kickmen. I even interviewed the developer, Dan Marshall back in the summer when all things were bright and beautiful. It’s something of a shock then to see that Dan is including a new mode in Kickmen which betrays the ultra-hardcore, extremely realistic simulation style of the game. The new mode – Dystopian Future BloodSport Mode.

Motorsport Manager Announcement Makes Me Happy

Motorsport Manager Announcement Makes Me Happy

When you consider all of the love (and sometimes, the grumbles) that I give to the Football Manager series, you might think that I started my management game life with something like Championship Manager 3. You’d be wrong, as my first sporting love was Formula 1, not football, and in turn, my first experience of in-game management was with Microprose’s brilliant, Grand Prix Manager 2. I loved that game to bits, and I might finally have something to replace it with Motorsport Manager.

The Sun Rises – Dawn of War 3 Announced

As the Sun rises in the East, it brings with it the dawn, the Daw of War. That’s right, Sega and Relic have today announced Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III. Coming seven years after it’s much heralded younger brother, Dawn of War III is the dawn of another event – the first main game in the Dawn of War franchise to be published by Sega. Dawn is coming, but please don’t get it confused with Dorne!

The Technomancer – Gameplay Trailer

The Technomancer – Gameplay Trailer

If you’re looking forward to a holiday on Mars this year, and fancy something with a different pace to Doom, you might just want to check out The Technomancer, an upcoming RPG from Spiders and being published by Focus Home Interactive. Unless I am very much mistaken, The Technomancer is sharing the same universe as Mars: War Logs, a game which I thought was interesting, but rough around the edges when I reviewed it a few years ago. I enjoyed the setting and story that Spiders were trying to tell in War Logs, but it was lacking in polish and a second chapter which dragged its feet. Judging by the gameplay trailer below, The Technomancer has received a bit of spit and polish, and hopefully makes more use of the morality system where your choices will have clear consequences later in the game.

Tokyo 42 – A Stunning Isometric Action Game Announced

Tokyo 42 – A Stunning Isometric Action Game Announced

The use of colour is so important in games, and very few seem to nail it. Everywhere I look are the same drab browns and greys, with little catching the eye. Tokyo 42 doesn’t have that problem as it combines a clean, bold colour scheme with some wild looking isometric action. It also features cats. Everyone loves cats right?

Hit the break to find out more.

The Taken King Gets a Launch Trailer

The Taken King Gets a Launch Trailer

It always seems odd to me when a launch trailer is released for a game more than a handful of days from release. Even more so when said trailer comes a full two weeks ahead of the launch of the game. Yet I still tend to watch them, out of an ingrained curiosity and the chance to get a glimpse (after all the other trailers that have already been and gone) of the action one last time before launch. If there is one thing that will get me more excited to see a launch trailer than normal though, it is when you read that the trailer is backed up by a great rock song. So here we are with the launch trailer for The Taken King, the upcoming massive expansion for Destiny, backed up by the mighty Black Dog by Led Zeppelin.

Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition – Shown off in New Trailer

Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition – Shown off in New Trailer

Larian Studios have spent their development career working on the Divinity series, a history which has seen them dive into the traditional RPG-fair with Divinity II: Ego Draconis and RTS/political-sim hybrid Divinity: Dragon Commander. Their true success however came with Divinity: Original Sin (see my Verdict), an RPG with a highly interactive world to explore with some hardcore turn-based combat thrown in for good measure. It was a great game, and is set to become even better with an Enhanced Edition.

Change the Course of History in Hearts of Iron IV

Change the Course of History in Hearts of Iron IV

Have you ever had a dream about changing the course of history? Have you ever wondered what might happen if Britain got involved in the Spanish Civil War? What about the United States taking an isolationist policy towards Europe in World War Two? If you have dreams like that, then you are either a historian, or you are waiting for Hearts of Iron IV from Paradox. The good news is that I have the latest trailer to share with you.
