Developers Warhorse have been pretty forthcoming with the patches and updates, which is great to see, and From the Ashes marks their first paid for expansion to the game.<br /> Here Henry will find himself rebuilding the village of Pribisalvitz, which was being held by a bunch of motley bandits. You don't have to have completed the game to access this new DLC though, you can jump in as soon as you liberate the village. Those who have finished can jump in at any time.<br /> As From the Ashes begins Henry finds himself on a rescue mission, which in true Kingdom Come: Deliverance fashion can be completed in multiple ways I won't spoil here. Eventually you'll end up as the Baliff of&nbsp; Pribisalvitz, where you and the surviving villagers of the sacked Skalitz can start rebuilding.</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12957">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12957#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>ReviewFri, 20 Jul 2018 13:16:51 +0200http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12957#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12957evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net Hockenheimring Returns for F1 2018http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12956<h4></h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12956"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/avatars/aatg.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="Hockenheimring Returns for F1 2018"></a>F1 2018 returns with its latest instalment on August 24th and includes for the first time the excellent Circuit Paul Ricard, home of the French grand prix, as it returns to the F1 calander after a 10 year hiatus.

Back in the heady days of 2009 there was no American Wotsit snorting his own farts in the oval office, nor a UK desperately trying to kick itself in the balls as hard as it possibly can. But there was Red Faction: Guerilla by Volition, the lovely people responsible for the Saints Row series.<br /> THQ Nordic have chosen to show the game some love in this so called Re-Mars-tered edition, fully reworking the graphics with juicy new textures and specular maps, along with updated shadows and shaders and all those other things that make games look not shit. You also get native 4K support on PC, 900p at 60fps on Xbox One, 1800p at 60fps or 4K at 30fps on Xbox One X, 1080p at 60fps on PS4 and finally either 1500p at 60fps or 4K at 30fps on PlayStation Pro.<br /> Anyway, enough with the numbers, what exactly is Red Faction: Guerilla all about I hear you cry.

The promise of VR has inevitably led to a number of low effort, or at least low achievement, titles that will be a sure fire waste of your cash. So what to make of the new VR update for Kona, a low key title from Canadian developer Parabole, originally released to the console in tired old 2D in March?<br /> The game itself first though, which is described as an &lsquo;interactive tale&rsquo;. You&rsquo;ll play as a detective brought to a remote, snowy, French Canadian village in the 1970s by a wealthy client. It&rsquo;s difficult to say more without going into spoilers, but everything goes predictably pear shaped and leaves you alone in a harsh environment with little clue about what has occurred here and no resources to speak of that could help you leave.<br /> Kona&rsquo;s structure is i...</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12954">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12954#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>ReviewMon, 02 Jul 2018 12:29:31 +0200http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12954#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12954evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net Conan Exiles Reviewhttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12953<h4>Conan Eileen</h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12953"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/articlethumbs/conanexiles1.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="Conan Exiles Review"></a>Review by Terry Bonds.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Once in a while I find myself late at night getting lost in YouTube, stay with me there is a reason for this start, one of those nights I'd somehow got onto the lonely island again - which is no bad thing - they are bloomin' funny.&nbsp; I digress from my digressing, I'd only ever watched the video for dick in a box, I didn't know Justin Trousersnake and Andy Samberg had gone and done two "sequels".&nbsp; So there I was watching 3-way (the golden rule), and then it got to part about how to impress a girl (2 minutes 40 seconds for the curious).&nbsp; Anyway, it's a very good song - 4 out of 5.<br /> Fast forward to now and I've been asked to review another one of these survival games, I'm rubbish at them and I don't really enjoy them.&nbsp; So who better to review Conan Exiles?&nbsp; Look, I've played Subnautica for a bit.

It&rsquo;s a fun game. It looks, sounds and plays nice. There&rsquo;s a compelling two-tone dynamic that finds you playing for considerably longer than originally anticipated. It&rsquo;s charming and easily learned while having a breadth that keeps supplying new things to chase, new things to do.&nbsp;<br /> It&rsquo;s hot and sunny outside and I really want to head to the pool with my young daughter. You have the gist, the essentials of this game in your mind now; go buy it. Can I go now?<br /> OK, if you insist, I&rsquo;ll tell you some more about Moonlighter. You play Will, a 16-bit kind of guy living in a 16-bit kind of world. His wee village has fallen on hard times, but the dungeons tucked just around that screen are beckoning once more. Will owns a shop, the titular Moonlighter.

They also wondered what happened if you made a hybrid of an arcade racer and a competitive team-based shooter. It turns out that what you get is Onrush, and ultimately an incredibly entertaining experience.<br /> So let&rsquo;s get this bit out of the way - Onrush isn&rsquo;t a standard racing game. It&rsquo;s not a run to the finish line, and there are no points for being ahead of the opposition. If you crash you get respawned somewhere near the running pack, so you&rsquo;re always close to the action.

Not content with all this visual splendour your ears will also be accosted by one Charles Martinet, the voice of Mario himself! I hope Nintendo don't know you are moonlighting, Charles, their lawyers are formidable I hear.<br /> As for the gameplay, would you be terribly surprised to hear that you are going to be doing a fair amount of running? You don't have to hold right to go here, you are always running, but you are responsible for jumping over obstacles and bizarre baddies, kicking through walls, knowing when to hold the jump button down so you float down to earth more gently and mastering that bloody double jump.

With his new studio Airship Syndicate, Madureira returns to the world of Battle Chasers, his very own fantasy comic book series.<br /> After a lovingly-drawn intro that faintly calls to mind the opening scenes to many an 80s or 90s Saturday morning cartoon - though with a bit more blood than you might have seen on Live and Kicking - we're introduced to ...</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12947">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12947#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>ReviewTue, 15 May 2018 16:51:03 +0200http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12947#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12947evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net Dragon's Crown Pro PS4 Reviewhttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12946<h4>Fighting Fantasy</h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12946"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/articlethumbs/dragonscrown1.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="Dragon's Crown Pro PS4 Review"></a>You know what I love?

In Dragon's Crown Pro they have prettied up their original 2013 release to a full 4K and added a wonderful orchestral soundtrack by Hitoshi Sakimoto. And by golly doesn't it look beautiful and sound lovely.<br /> Dragon's Crown Pro looks like a gorgeous fantasy painting come to life, with everything animated perfectly and with style.

You follow the story of Otto, a young Shaper who feels that the Golems are being misused and as such reluctant to join the Shapers ranks. Unfortunately for Otto, due to his engagement to the Shaper Supreme he is forced into taking the Shaper exam to become a Master.&nbsp; During the exam (in which Otto excels) the ground erupts and aggressive Golems appear under the orders of the nefarious Zahr to attack Otto and his teacher.

You are given an array of different weapon types with which to dispatch enemies and the ability to cloak yourself which lets you move through objects and remove yourself from dangerous situations where you may have backed yourself into a corner, it has proved invaluable and saved me from some sticky situations more times than I can mention. You are also given access to traditional tower defence structures that can be used to manipulate the route that ground forces take to your base and causing some damage to the oncoming enemy horde, used strategically you can force the enemy to take a long-winded path to your base passing towers twice along the way to maximise their impact. These can be placed at the star...</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12943">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12943#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>ReviewTue, 03 Apr 2018 12:50:54 +0200http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12943#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12943evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net The Council: Episode 1: The Mad Ones Reviewhttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12942<h4>Everybody's talking at me, I don't hear a word they're saying, Only the echoes of my mind.</h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12942"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/articlethumbs/councilep11.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="The Council: Episode 1: The Mad Ones Review"></a>Thankfully The Council: Episode 1: The Mad Ones isn't about your neighbours having a shit fit in the streets after the bin men 'forgot' to empty their bins again, rather it's a story driven adventure game set in the 1790's, in which you take the role of Louis de Richet, the son and heir apparent of Sarah de Richet, head of the Golden Order secret society, who has seemingly disappeared on the private island of Lord William Alexander Mortimer. Fortunately you find yourself in possesion of an invitaion to one of his lavish parties, which is an excellent oppurtunity to investigate and grill the guests, which include famous faces from history such as Napoleon and George Washington.<br /> On first glance The Council: Episode 1: The Mad Ones could be wiritten off as just as just another dialogue based Telltale type game (developers of the Walking Dead series, amongst others), but the French team of Big Bad Wolf have sought to do something more involved, inte...</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12942">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12942#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>ReviewThu, 29 Mar 2018 16:48:43 +0200http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12942#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12942evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 Reviewhttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12941<h4>A Knightmare?</h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12941"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/articlethumbs/hundred21.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 Review"></a>Review by Ashley Fiddes.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 is many things, it is a visual novel, an action RPG and a strategy game. Most of the time spent playing this game will be watching well drawn characters talk to each other in overly long story driven scenes. These scenes can be up to half hour long and on many occasions don&rsquo;t really move the story forward very much. It can be frustrating at times but thankfully between story sections you gain access to the world map, it is here the titular Hundred Knight gets to strut his stuff and the game really shows us how good it is.<br /> Hundred Knight is a manania created by the awoken witch Chelka, one of the stories main protagonists who has chosen to protect Amelie, Chelka&rsquo;s ex-sister and second main protagonist. In this role as protector Hundred Knight is required to reach a certain tile in the world map whilst defeating/running past the enemies that cover every i...</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12941">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12941#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>ReviewWed, 28 Mar 2018 17:44:45 +0200http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12941#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12941evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net Mulaka Reviewhttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12940<h4>Boom Shaka Mulaka</h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12940"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/articlethumbs/mulaka1.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="Mulaka Review"></a>Mulaka is one beautiful looking game, taking art cues from the Tarahumara, a real life indigenous culture from northern Mexico, everything has a solid, colourful, whittled from wood look that suits it down to it's beautifully rendered ground. Even the music is perfectly suited as the tunes are also performed using traditional instruments.<br /> As Mulaka begins you find yourself in the shoes of the titular character himself, a Sukur&uacute;ame, a type of Tarahumara Shaman gifted with the power of shape-shifting and vision with which you can see into another dimension revealing hidden items, platforms and enemies. Your task is to rid the land of a terrifying evil which permeates the earth and the wildlife, which is mutated and in a very bad mood.<br /> There is more than a touch of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess about Mulaka, and this is no bad thing.

Developers Kylotonn have taken on the task of recreating this event in all of its insanity and majesty, and in doing so have created something exceptional, though not necessarily easy to recommend.<br /> The Snaefell Mountain Course is the clear heart of the game, with the full track laser scanned for your death-defying pleasure, and we might as well begin here. If you follow the career mode, it will be a while until you are offered the opportunity to experience the full lap, but it is certainly worth the wait.
