The Wolf Among Us - Episode 3: A Crooked Mile Review : Class Warfare

Written by Katie Allen on 15 April 2014 at 17:30

Before I start, I am afraid I am going to have to issue a SERIOUS SPOILER WARNING for the first two episodes since, as with any episodic game series, it’s pretty damn near impossible to talk about it without reference to earlier characters and events.So for the sake of this review, I am going to have to assume that you’ve already played the previous two episodes. If you want to read a general overview of the series without any baggage attached, I suggest you check out my Episode One review.

Having waited an unseasonably long time for the arrival of Smoke and Mirrors, Episode 3 was pleasantly rapid in its delivery, arriving just six weeks after its predecessor... [More]

Written by Jon Sutton on 15 April 2014 at 16:13

The Oculus Rift isn’t even consumer hands yet, but the pioneering VR headset has already shifted more than 85,000 units, thanks to eager developers snapping up dev kits.

Backlash from the Facebook buyout doesn’t appear to have done any harm to Oculus VR founder Palmer Luckey and co, with more than 25,000 of those sold being the Dev Kit 2 units that went on sale March 19, just days before the announcement… [More]

Rumour: Dark Souls 2 PC Version Faces Further Delay

Written by Katie Allen on 15 April 2014 at 15:28

We’ve known for a good six months that PC fans would have to wait a little longer than console gamers for our fix of ultra-hard hack’n’slash action courtesy of Dark Souls II. The return, we were promised, would be a more optimized PC experience with higher frame rate and "visual improvements".

But, if internet rumours are to be believed, it seems that the six week delay wasn’t quite sufficient to get the PC port of Dark Souls 2 in order. Amazon UK, GameStop and ShopTo have both pushed the release date listed on their websites back to May, and are notifying pre-order customers via email... [More]

Blood Bowl 2 First Match Gameplay Trailer Released

Written by Neil Soutter on 15 April 2014 at 15:09

Cyanide Studio’s upcoming Blood Bowl 2 has had its first gameplay footage reveal, showcasing the eye-gouging, face-smashing Warhammer alternative to American Football. It still somehow manages to look more civilised than many rugby matches I’ve laid eyes on though.

Blood Bowl 2 comes sporting a shiny new graphics engine, so you can look up giant orc noses in full-blown HD. Manky trolls never looked so good. [More]

Moebius The Game Review : Paranormal Point n Clicker

Written by Chris Barraclough on 15 April 2014 at 14:22

The moment we discovered that Jane Jensen (creator of the brilliant supernatural series Gabriel Knight) was working on a new point n’ click adventure game, we squealed and bounced up and down, shaking our fists with glee.

Now Moebius: Empire Rising is finally here, and it’s pretty much another thrilling Gabriel Knight adventure in everything but name, complete with smart puzzles, freakish paranormal plot twists and a fair bit of obligatory globe trotting... [More]

Half-Life Completed In Under 21 Minutes In New Speed Run

Written by Jon Sutton on 15 April 2014 at 14:00

I remember watching a speedrunning record run of Half-Life about a decade or so ago, and the chap doing it managed to squeeze in a run under an hour. I was pretty blown away.

That is, until I laid my eyes on this incredible feat of human perseverance. I’m not too sure what wizardry is at work here; it seems as if this team of speed runners are making use of every trick in the book, but their dedication to the cause is impressive. Once you’ve got a timestamped Google Spreadsheet up and running, you know you’re taking your speedrunning seriously… [More]

World of Darkness, the hotly-anticipated MMO based on the Vampire: The Masquerade universe, has been canned.

CCP Games, the creators of the eternally popular EVE Online, announced yesterday that World of Darkness was cancelled and 56 employees had been laid off, following a difficult and protracted development since its announcement in late 2006… [More]

WildStar System Requirements

Written by Jon Sutton on 15 April 2014 at 11:26

WildStar is an upcoming scifi MMORPG looking to win back the classic MMO players of yore, who've been abandoning subscription-play in droves in favour of the rise and rise of the MOBA. 

There's been innumerable MMOs claiming to be the new World of Warcraft, but this new dev team comprising a number of ex-WoW, Fallout, Half-Life, and Diablo devs believe they've struck the winning combination. Before you can even think about playing it though, you're going to need to know if your rig is up to the demands of the WildStar system requirements... [More]

Written by Neil Soutter on 15 April 2014 at 10:12

Civilization: Beyond Earth, the recently announced spiritual successor to classic 4X strategy game Alpha Centauri, will be the next title in line to support AMD’s Mantle API.

AMD’s close-to-the-metal API is steadily improving its roster of supported titles, with this announcement coming just days after Nvidia released its impressive performance-boosting GeForce 337.50 beta drivers, which saw up to 70% increases for some titles… [More]
