A few years back Codemasters’ GRID was a new racing IP in the long line of racing games the studio has put out over the last decade. The Codemasters name has been synonymous with racing for years now (with the occasional foray into other genres with games like Operation Flashpoint), so when the studio announces a new racing title people generally listen. I personally enjoyed the first GRID game because it came in the midst of Codemasters’ rally game fever when they were pumping out the (also great) DiRT series, so it gave a change of pace and offered some
If given its proper due, German developer Daedalic Entertainment’s point-and-click adventure game The Night of the Rabbit is an utterly enchanting experience. With beautiful hand-drawn graphics and story elements inspired by Doctor Who and Winnie the Pooh, Night of the Rabbit sees players interacting with anthropomorphic animals while solve puzzles in a world of fantasy and magic. Players assume the role of Jeremiah Hazelnut, an all-around wholesome lad with an active imagination that fuels his sense of exploration. After a fateful day of foraging in the forest, Jerry unknowingly summons Marquis de Hoto- a magical half man/half rabbit entity that
Remember Me is a game that should not be forgotten, but probably will be. Don’t read that statement as a knock against the quality, because it isn’t. Remember Me is a game that has been ever so slightly pushed by Capcom over the past year and a game that most of the general gaming public know little about. This is a shame because while Remember Me has some major issues, it’s one of those titles that you can clearly see a bright light shining through and wonder what it could become if the series is able to continue. Unfortunately with
For an indie game, The Adventures of Van Helsing has a whole lot going for it. Considering Diablo III’s multiplayer wasn’t running on full blast upon release, Van Helsing offers a comparable single-player action RPG experience though its character customization and skill options aren’t nearly as robust. Pour yourself a frosty flagon of mead, dim the lights, and enjoy The Adventures of Van Helsing for what it is- an exciting gothic gaming experience that will definitely give you your money’s worth.
Fuse stars a new elite team of mercs known as ‘Overwatch 9′ who all have their own brand of strengths and abilities. Izzy was our favorite to use in the game but Dalton, Naya and Jacob each have their own charm. If you are playing the campaign solo you can ‘leap’ from one character to the next on the fly at any time to test our their special weapons and skills. Dalton has a shield as a special weapon so be sure to stick close by him if you are using any of the other three characters.
Microsoft Press Conference revealed much about their upcoming system like the official name ‘Xbox One‘ and that it would be released later this year in 2013. An extensive time (the first 30 minutes) was spent showing off the new interface, tech specs, system design and controller. The machine looks very robust and ‘strong’ like a tank – the new controller looks very similar to the old one but will have a new updated design — hopefully fixing any d-pad issues we’ve had over the years. Microsoft presenters used buzzwords like ‘intelligent tv’ when talking about the new interface – trying
With a television show on Syfy and a MMO by Trion Worlds, Defiance boldly treads into the world of cross-media experiences. The goal is to get you to watch the show and play the game concurrently. It’s an ambitious undertaking that does a lot to hit its mark of making the player feel a part of the Defiance universe; if only the game did more to distinguish itself as a MMO. In Defiance, you are an Ark Hunter – a person searching for alien technologies in order to make a quick buck. For an immediate crossover in the beginning of
The Resident Evil as a franchise has mutated as much as the bio-weapons you face in it with each new iteration. Starting as a survival horror series, it has slowly become more action-oriented. While there has been an outcry from people who wish for the series to go back to its horror roots, it seems Capcom had just the remedy for their aliment. Resident Evil Revelations came out for the Nintendo 3DS fairly recently, but is the new HD port worth the extra cash? Resident Evil Revelations has you as multiple characters across a variety of locales, from a barren
A hybrid first-person shooter & tower defense game with a smattering of RPG flavor, Sanctum 2 follows up its popular predecessor with more strategic options and fast paced action than before. The game pits players against waves of marauding alien invaders in a stylized sci-fi universe, though there are plenty of tough towers and armaments to keep the enemy at bay. The love that developer Coffee Stain Studios has for the genres that influenced Sanctum 2 is evident from the get-go, as players are able to play as one of four classic FPS archetypes with unique weapons and abilities. Whether
