Q.U.B.E. Director's Cut Review

   03/08/2015 at 17:10       N H       0 COMMENTS.
Q.U.B.E. (‘Quick Understanding of Block Extrusion’) first appeared at the tail-end of 2011, first on PC, then Mac, and now most other major platforms. The game was the ultimate product of a trio of students in the US, who took their idea and ran with it, culminating in this ‘director’s cut’. It’s an admirable story, even if the game is not always as inspiring. Q.U.B.E. Director's Cut takes place in a world of… cubes. The player character, usi...

Deep Silver have just covertly handed us the files to find the latest Lost Horizon 2 Trailer, brought to you from Game Arts, those nice folks who dumped the Secret Files series of games in your needy laps.

Rare Replay Pre-Order Trailer Is Glorious

Seriously, check the trailer out below, aint that just the dog's danglies? When a trailer is that lovingly crafted it gives great hope that the actual game is going to be something special. Well I say game, there's 30 of the buggers hidden away in this collection which includes new game modes, ways to play and even some new music. 12 days left to wait. I can sleep that long can't I?...
Tembo The Badass Elephant Review

Well talk about surprises. Out of the relative blue Tembo The Badass Elephant has made his merry way to your download store of choice (Steam, PSN and Xbox Live Arcade, no Wii U just yet, sorry nintendfans). It's being published by Sega and is made by Game Freak, those lovable Japanese chaps responsible for Pokemon (you may have heard of it) Nintendo's perennial money-spinner. You won't find wandering adventure and a catch-em-all ethos in Tembo The Badass Elephant...
The Red Solstice PC Review

   21/07/2015 at 18:13       CLAYTON CLIVE       0 COMMENTS.
Mars ain't the kind of place to raise a kid. Even after terraforming and a mass exodus of our planet. It's 117 years after Earth and something really shitty is going on within the capital of Mars. So you step up with a team of badass space marines to do your part. The Red Solstice is a tactical, RPG, RTS, top down, horror, survivaly game. Primarily promoted as multiplayer I was pleasantly surprised to see the game encourages you to try the solo campaign to learn the ins and o...
Snoopy Set For Adventure In The Peanuts Movie Game

Forget all that Call of Duty bobbins The Peanuts Movie: Snoopy’s Grand Adventure is set for release the very same day. The game will see Snoopy explore the fantastical worlds of his imagination to track down Charlie Brown and his friends in an intricate game of hide-and-seek. As he follows their trails, Snoopy will acquire new costumes (based on his many alter egos) that provide unique abilities for overcoming obstacles and reaching new levels, including flight stages ...
Star Hammer: The Vanguard Prophecy PC Review

Don't let the corny, 90s sci-fi title, and extra corny trailer fool you (you know he is asking for trouble when he groans "147th run..." and same old shit different day... or something to that affect. Not a direct quote.) Star Hammer: The Vanguard Prophecy, we'll call it SH from here on out, from Matrix Games is serious. You command Naval Group 7 as humanity's new home Novus comes under threat again from a warmongering alien race know as The Nautilid. Before I get st...
Farm Simulator 2015 Xbox One Review

   07/07/2015 at 16:31       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
I must admit, when these Farming Simulator games first appeared on the scene I thought they were a joke. You have to be kidding, I thought, who wants to sit at the wheel of a virtual tractor and plough a virtual field? I can understand shooting virtual space aliens in the noggin and such, but farmers are some of the most miserable people on the planet. There must be a reason for that. Turns out the reason for their surliness may just be those stupidly early 4am starts to chuc...
Order of Battle: Pacific - Review

   13/05/2015 at 19:16       CLAYTON CLIVE       0 COMMENTS.
It's been a busy week. I've moved house. There has been a heartbreaking election night. And worse of all, worse than five more years of that guy. I had to paint. When I finally got the chance to sink my teeth in to Order of Battle: Pacific, I wasn't going to loosen my jaw.  Order of Battle was developed by The Aristocrats and published by Slitherine, I have never once been disappointed by a game published by Slitherine so I felt positive. I felt like I was in sa...
Plough With Your Chums in Farming Simulator 15

Virtual green fingered gamers will finally be able to live the full "Farming experience", the same one that has already enraptured over one million PC players with its latest version: all its content, its activities, its vehicles and, only on PS4 and Xbox One, the online cooperative multiplayer mode! Inviting other players in your game opens many opportunities for developing your farm: increase your productivity by sharing tasks or co-operating on bigger tasks and develop your farm faster tha...
Tower of Guns Review

   24/04/2015 at 11:50       N H       0 COMMENTS.
Tower of Guns has a deceptively simple premise: get gun & run. Tasked with ascending through the eponymous ‘Tower of Guns’, one is faced with numerous other guns, with only your gun to protect you. Guns guns guns. It’s good fun, and pretty impressive in certain respects, but on first impressions it can fall rather flat, and it may not have the legs one might hope. It’s a ‘roguelike’, in that you have one life with which to beat...
Titanfall Season Pass is FREE Right Now!

   11/03/2015 at 08:56       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Electronic Art's pretty bloody brilliant multiplayer robot smash-em-up has a lovely surprise for you Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners today. If you check out Xbox.com you'll find that the season pass will now cost you nothing, nada, zip. This is grand news if you've managed to pick up the game cheaply lately, or hell, get the pass then make your way directly to the shops and pick up the main game proper. It's worth it, some of the DLC maps are beautiful. No free pass for P...
The Escapists Xbox One Review

   09/03/2015 at 13:02       N H       1 COMMENTS.
The Escapists recently released on X1 and on PC, where it has been cooking away in Early Access for some time, is a top-down pixel prison puzzler. Taking control of a customisable inmate (best named something absurd, so the guards frequently make themselves look stupid by yelling your name to all four grey walls), you must navigate the inmate rivalries, material shortages, guard brutality and warden waffling of prison life, to achive a singular goal: escape.  This takes ...
Hand of Fate Review

   25/02/2015 at 19:40       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Dare you risk the Hand of Fate. The dealer lays down the magical cards in front of you, it's up to you which you turn over first. It could ask you to outwit a Goblin, or share your food with a wandering priest, It could be a straight up ambush by foul creatures wanting to slake their blood thirst. Only one thing is for sure. You won't know until you turn it over. The first thing that struck me about Hand of Fate was how pretty it was, and all it was showing me was th...
Take a Look at Shiftlings.

Those helpful corporate overlords at Zomegacorp have released a new training video to introduce you to the probably-safe and exciting gameplay of Shiftlings, the upcoming physics-based puzzle platformer from Sierra and Rock Pocket Games.  This brand new in-game footage shows our two heroes, tethered together by a single air hose, inflating and deflating their way across the many traps and challenges that Zomegacorp is in no way liable for. You’ll get plenty of enco...
