Retro Corner – July 2014

Retro Corner – July 2014

Hello and welcome, to what I hope will turn into a new monthly column. As you can probably guess, a lot of my time recently has been spent looking back into the gaming past. I’ve been reliving older games, classics that I missed the first time round. What I’ve found is an amazing community and seen just how big the retro scene has been ... Read More »

MX vs ATV Supercross – Preview

MX vs ATV Supercross – Preview

Normally when you hear the sound of trail bike engines, it’s due to some annoying 15 year old who’s just passed their CBT, ragging the poor restricted thing up and down your street at 1am. But this? This is where the sounds are meant to be heard. It’s been a while since we’ve seen an MX vs ATV game. Mainly because the owners... Read More »

TheIndieJar: Gods Will Be Watching – Review

TheIndieJar: Gods Will Be Watching – Review

Empathy Simulator seems to be a popular theme of games at the moment, and that exact title will probably show up next to ‘Grass Simulator’ or whatever trash shows up on Steam Greenlight these days. When you have fully formed characters and a well constructed plot, games are capable of breaking your heart. At it’s worst, you have digital characters ... Read More »

How I Survived The Steam Summer Sale On A Mac

How I Survived The Steam Summer Sale On A Mac

… I didn’t So in case you didn’t know, I don’t have a PC. Well I have a PC I can use but I am an iMac user. In fact my decision to go to Apple computers was partly because I get too distracted by gaming on a PC to be productive. So how exactly did I manage to succumb to the wallet emptying frenzy of the Steam summer sale? Well indie gaming pl... Read More »

TheIndieJar: Free games from the Space Cowboy Game Jam!

TheIndieJar: Free games from the Space Cowboy Game Jam!

Games Jams are popping up all over the place, which is great for developers to explore themes in quick games and for people who want free stuff to play! This particular jam, the Space Cowboy Game Jam, is all about – yes, you guessed it – space cowboys; things like Cowboy Bebop, the online comic Coyote Doggirl and the film the American A...

TheGameJar Podcast 094

TheGameJar Podcast 094

The podcast team are back TODAY for episode 94 of TheGameJar podcast! It’s a few of the usual suspects, plus a few new voices you may not have heard before! While writing this, I have actually no idea what the episode is about (gaming, hopefully), so it’s a bit of a surprise for everyone *goes to listen to it right now*. There’s s... Read More »

Alan Wake – Returning to Bright Falls

Alan Wake – Returning to Bright Falls

Every six months this happens to me. Pretty much like clockwork in fact. Everyone has their go-to game that they pick up and play again; in fact everyone probably has several. I myself have several but this one game in particular keeps surging itself back in to my psyche like the darkness in it is making me one of the Taken. Maybe its because I am ... Read More »

Alien: Isolation in #PreLCgate

Alien: Isolation in #PreLCgate

TWEET TWEET – All aboard the Twitterversy! Today’s slagging match is all to do with The Second Coming of Horror Gaming Christ, Alien: Isolation. Not content from people shouting about how it’s a horror game with no guns (yeah, like when did that ever work?), then getting confused when it actually does have guns, they’ve anno... Read More »

Why All The Doom 4 Anti-hype, Bethesda?

Why All The Doom 4 Anti-hype, Bethesda?

Trying to read between the lines when it comes to gaming news can be tricky at times. My current brainpower is currently attempting to decipher the news coming from Bethesda/ID over Doom 4. When I first got in to writing about games, Duke Nukem Forever was coming out. In fact I reviewed it but the news and the hype that Gearbox’s Randy Pitchford ma... Read More »

A Look Back at The Bitmap Brothers

A Look Back at The Bitmap Brothers

In 1988 a much younger, less jaded me was about to start paying attention to just who was making the video games I spent so much time playing. Today, we’re all intimately familiar with names like Infinity Ward and Bungie, but back then, developers weren’t rock stars. I didn’t pay any attention to past releases from the same studio...

Killer Instinct: 20th Birthday

Killer Instinct: 20th Birthday

Back in the 16Bit era, thanks to the success of Street Fighter 2 the fighting genre was a big draw for gamers everywhere. We saw Mortal Kombat come along with fatalities, blood and gore. Other fighters appeared trying to take the crown including Clay Fighter (I never really saw the appeal of this one), even SEGA turned there hand to the genre with ... Read More »

Worms Battlegrounds – Review

Worms Battlegrounds – Review

Team 17 returns! And what delights have they brought with them? A new Alien Breed, maybe? Or, even better, A NEW SUPERFROG??? Nope…they’ve brought out a new Worms game. I know, it’s a shocker, right? To be fair, Team 17 must be doing something right. We’re now 19 years removed from the very first Worms game, and yet they still find people to buy th... Read More »

E3 2014: Is This What Next-Generation Means?

E3 2014: Is This What Next-Generation Means?

Now that E3 2014 is done, and every gaming site, blogger, and social media user within the known digital universe has dissected the various announcements ad nauseum, it’s time to settle down and gather our thoughts in peace and quiet. Well, it’s that time for me at least, because over the years, I’ve grown accustomed to scooping u... Read More »

E3 – Missing In Action

E3 – Missing In Action

E3 has once more, come and gone. Loads of new games were teased on stage, the big three drew the battle lines in the sand as always. Each of them, Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo showing off their future ideas, new visions and hopes to win us over to spend our hard earned cash! There were a few surprises and some great new games. They teased us with n... Read More »

GRID Autosport – Preview

GRID Autosport – Preview

It’s time to don those fireproof overalls again, strap on your helmet and delve in to the wonderful world of club competition racing. GRID Autosport sits in a very weird place as far as Codemasters previous games have been positioned. GRID Autosport is the culmination of about 12 months worth of community feedback over GRID 2 which, despite t... Read More »

TheIndieJar: Super Time Force – Review

In Suepr Tiem For…damn it…let me start again. In Super Time Forks…oh, come on now! Ok, one more time. Im Syper Yim…AAAARRRRGGGHHH! Isn’t it frustrating, when you make mistakes over and over again? Super Time Force (yes! Finally nailed it!) takes that frustration and makes it the core tenet of a mindbending puzzle platformer, which will test the ana... Read More »

E3 Recap – Sony Press Conference

E3 Recap – Sony Press Conference

You may have heard us talk about the Sony E3 Press Conference on TheGameJar podcast this past weekend. If you haven’t then go and do it, but read this at the same time. Because, you know, multitasking right? You could argue that Sony certainly had the most invested in their conference in terms of delivering. Their console is still outselling ... Read More »

TheIndieJar: Kero Blaster Review

TheIndieJar: Kero Blaster Review

The gaming industry is finally getting to the point where we can reflect fondly on the ‘old days’, and boy are we. The majority of indie titles these days (as soon as the term ‘indie’ began to indicate something more than ‘Xbox Live Arcade Robotron clone’) try to intentionally harken back to outdated graphical an...
