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 feedbac... Read More »

Homefront: The Revolution – On the streets of Philadelphia…

Homefront: The Revolution – On the streets of Philadelphia…

I played the original Homefront back when it was released in 2011 and I was left, if I am honest, feeling a little underwhelmed. It was a very generic by the numbers shooter that never really got going until the very last mission, which saw you and your band of freedom fighters assaulting the Golden Gate Bridge. By tha...

Metro Redux – Preview

Now that we’re in the ‘next-generation’ of hi-tech wizardry, its only natural that developers will want to see their previous projects in all their digitally-enhanced HD glory. There’s going to a lot of HD-remakes on the horizon, in case you weren’t aware, and we’ve already encountered a few. There are those that have ... Read More »

The Evil Within – Preview

The Evil Within – Preview

The weight of expectation on The Evil Within is certainly on some broad shoulders. Resident Evil director Shinji Mikami happens to own those shoulders.

Lords of the Fallen Preview

Lords of the Fallen Preview

Lords of the Fallen has already had its share of comparisons, and it’s easy to see why. Being treated to a demonstration of a level following the anti-hero Harkyn, the new game from Deck 13/CI Games could easily be accused of ‘ripping off’ other franchises like Dark Souls, Darksiders and the like. Even the executive pr...

THE NAZIS ARE BACK, THE NAZIS ARE BACK! Real Nazis of course, not those zombie/alien/mutated/alternate reality ones, genuine Nazis. In the context of a video gaming sphere, WW2 games have been gone for a long time. CI Games have decided that, given the slew of future shooters and ‘modern’ combat games, it was time to r...

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 a... 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 play... Read More »

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.

TheIndieJar: Assault Android Cactus – Early Access Preview

If you were to talk to me back in 2008 and tell me that in 2014 there would be a twin-stick shooter I was really excited about, I would respond with incredulousness. “GUH, another Geometry Wars ripoff? That’s the only game anyone makes for Xbox Live Arcade anymore!” And after you got done explaining to me that th... Read More »

TheIndieJar: Dungeon of the Endless Preview

TheIndieJar: Dungeon of the Endless Preview

Being on Early Access is great for developers, but can be pot luck for gamers – there are some real stinkers out there. I thought I’d pull one out the pile that I’m really enjoying at the moment. In a quirky sci-fi world an escape pod crashes explosively on a planet. That is only the beginning of the ... Read More »

“SPORTS!” comes the cry of the cool kids. Show them this game and they may be tricked into nerdyness! Haha!

Wolfenstein: The New Order Preview – Herr to the Empire

Wolfenstein: The New Order Preview – Herr to the Empire

In my life there are a few watershed moments that I refer to when talking to people about gaming, such as the first time I gamed online, my first home console, or the jump from standard to HD graphics. But my first and therefore most memorable gaming revelation came in 1992 when I walked into a Dixons store at Marble A... Read More »
