TheIndieJar: Biome Preview

TheIndieJar: Biome Preview

Imagine Populous’ slices of land, rolling hills, water and trees and stuff. Cool, now imagine that but with Proteus’ “for it’s own sake ’cause it’s fun and pretty” attitude. That’s a pretty good idea of what it’s like to play Biome. You may know what biomes are from Minecraft and the like but for the uninit... Read More »

SingOn Review

SingOn Review

This is the strange thing about this review – SingOn isn’t strictly a game. I mean there are gaming elements to it of course, but the truth of it is this is more of an app than a game. SingOn is a karaoke ‘game’ that is coming for the PS3 this week for its initial release. However its plans on household domination are hoping to be stretched t... Read More »

Wolfenstein: The New Order Preview – Engage Stealth Mode

Wolfenstein: The New Order Preview – Engage Stealth Mode

During Eurogamer Expo last year, I queued up to play a game named Wolfenstein: The New Order. I could see other expo-goers fighting Nazis, armed with huge guns, and explosions going off all over the screen. It definitely made an impact, and when I sat down to try it for myself, I was not disappointed. The level we played introduced a laser cutter, ... Read More »

Guild Wars 2′s First Living World Season In Review

Time waits for no Tyrian it would seem. Mere days after wrapping up the first season of their Living World arc for Guild Wars 2, ArenaNet are busy revealing the next update in the works, and bidding farewell to a narrative that has stretched over the best part of a year. But before Season One heads off into the sunset, I’d like to take a look... Read More »

TheIndieJar: Salvaged Preview

TheIndieJar: Salvaged Preview

One of the main attractions at Rezzed Expo this year had to be Alien: Isolation. It has scare-your-pants-off, evil stuff going on. If you are a coward like myself and would rather send other mortals off to die, Salvaged by Opposable Games might be up your street. Command a squad through the space ship, instead of yourself! How you command these squ... Read More »

APRIL FOOLS… oh, wait. That’s done already. This month we’re blessed with The Elder Scrolls Online – for people who didn’t get enough enjoyment out of the 100+ hours you can lose to Skyrim. We also have Goat Simulator… if you like tongues. AND a new episode of The Wolf Among Us. We’re still waiting for a su... Read More »

The Problem With Next Generation

The Problem With Next Generation

If, like me, you’re the kind of person who struggles to bite your tongue when you hear a strong opinion, you probably keep the internet at arm’s length most of the time. I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve had to remind myself that reading opinions on Twitter is completely optional, and I probably shouldn’t be ... Read More »

A Look Back At Spyro The Dragon

A Look Back At Spyro The Dragon

Long before Activision’s Skylanders, back even before the Xbox was a twinkle in Microsoft’s eye, a purple dragon named Spyro entered gamer’s living rooms in a platforming romp, which proved to be cute and totally addictive. It was the year 1998 and a developer named Insomniac Games hit us with a Playstation classic and created a c... Read More »

Thief Review

Thief Review

When you’re stood on rooftops, cloaked in shadows, with a host of gadgets and skills at your disposal, The City is your playground; no house is locked tight enough, no item is too well guarded, and no safe is uncrackable. You’re Garrett, a Master Thief, clever and cunning, outsmarting your foes to reach your goals undetected…  At ... Read More »

Is Now The Time For Virtual Reality?

Is Now The Time For Virtual Reality?

Virtual Reality – a technology that brings several images to mind. Thanks to films, comics and even songs, we’ve been talking about the possibilities of this wondrous idea for decades. We’ve seen the technology used in gaming over the years, although not as successfully as one might have hoped. Now after this year’s GDC, Vir... Read More »

RollerCoaster Tycoon – 15th Birthday

RollerCoaster Tycoon – 15th Birthday

The point of this piece is to look back on a game that I have incredibly fond memories of. In fact, I have nothing but praise for this game. But I’m actually going to start this with something very recent: Tumblr. There is a meme somewhere out there about the creative genius that RollerCoaster Tycoon provided, which I think supergeek/actor/writer W... Read More »

Titanfall Review

Titanfall Review

“Titanfall ey? Coming over here, taking our shooty bang bang action. It’s just not on, is it? We’ve got our Call of Duty and Battlefield already. We don’t need none of this foreign robot muck, with it’s auto-aiming pistols and talking face boxes up in the corner, as if we’re living in some fantasy land. Not for me, thank you. What’s that? You say i... Read More »

Monster Legacy Review

Monster Legacy Review

Nintendo’s recent struggles have provoked speculation about Nintendo games appearing on mobile platforms as a way to boost the ailing giant’s income. Thankfully for Monster Legacy, a Pokémon game appearing on iOS doesn’t look to be happening any time soon. Essentially spawning an entire RPG sub-genre, the Pokémon series is the yardstick against whi... Read More »

Missing the Obvious: Limited World

Missing the Obvious: Limited World

Open world games are a fundamental part of modern video gaming. The technology exists now that vast, incredible, imaginative worlds that a player can explore and find lots of completely ingenious things hidden in every nook and every cranny can be created. But to quote a line from Star Trek (movie number six if you’re feel feisty) – “Just bec... Read More »

Far Cry’s 10th Birthday

Far Cry’s 10th Birthday

It’s unassuming launch in 2004 proved to be quite a big deal. Far Cry was here, and it’s the best looking PC game ever. You also needed top of the line hardware to get it running it’s best, thus cementing Crytek’s reputation of needing to upgrade everything in your computer anytime they released a game. Their tradition of great lighting, ridiculous... Read More »
