Hunting Simulator 2 – Review

When I was younger, I played a good amount of hunting games, but I never really got into them. There’s something about their pacing that I couldn’t appreciate. Now that I’m older, I enjoy a slow burn and the ability to approach gameplay the way I prefer. It turns out that hunting games are pretty good for that slow burn style gameplay. Hunting Simulator 2 is a first person game that is all about tracking and hunting various animals—from waterfowl to grizzly bears. You can do this with various rifles, shotguns, and bows across six areas, two each in Colorado, Texas, and Europe. And you can bring along a canine companion to help in your hunt, as there are three breeds of dog, each with their own abilities. There is no story, and no real objectives—just you, your gun, your dog, and the hunt. ...

Crossfire X – Preview

Much was made of Crossfire X at last years E3. I personally had never heard of it, but it seemed to have quite the fanbase in it’s PC origins, so I was keen to check it out. Having spent a few hours with it, I can’t say I’m overly impressed, but I definitely keen to see where it goes from here. Three modes are on offer in the beta across 3 separate maps; two classic types and a more modern take (that I assume will be more equivalent to what we can expect from the Remedy-made single player portion). In terms of classic gametypes, on Black Widow we get our more standard fare in the form of bomb planting/defusal. Teams take it in turns to either attack or defend two points. Laboratory uses this concept too, but takes a more sci-fi approach, with the attackers being all but invisible when stil...

Minecraft Dungeons – Review

There’s a lot that can be said about Minecraft. From its humble beginnings to the juggernaut it is today, Minecraft has become a mainstay in homes across the World. With a diversified player-base, this block building phenomenon has captured the attention of millions. Be it casual players who rarely game or own just a few titles to those who consider themselves hardcore with a backlog that would take dedicated years to complete. The success of Minecraft is indisputable despite a lack of spin-offs in the series. When Minecraft Dungeons was announced, it was easy to snap to attention and keep a close eye on its progress. Now that it’s here, we take a look to see if this dungeon crawler lives up to the reputation the core game built block by block. Shunned and mistreated, an illager is all but...

Gears Tactics – Review

This might sound weird but this game reminded me of “Into the breach” rather than “X-Com” to me. Let me explain, Gears Tactics fundamental concept is pretty much like… well… Gears of war. 4 Macho men and Women fight against an endless horde of more metal version of orcs and goblins. That’s pretty much it. One of X-Com stronger aspects is you start as a small underequipped, obsolete tech, and practically weaker than your enemies then working up by stealing, scavenging, and researching your own weapons. Your soldiers also fragile and inexperienced, They are learning to be hardened veterans on countless trials by fire. On the other hand, Gears soldiers are already heroes units. Equally (if not slightly better) equipped than enemies. So enemies are mos...

Planet Zoo: South America Pack – Review

To start off, I enjoy the building aspect of Planet Zoo first and foremost. I got this pack for the build items, as for me the animals are secondary. While I agree that four animals isn’t enough, you’ve probably heard that enough by now. I’ll instead talk about the build items. Good: Two very versatile build sets. I have wanted a bamboo set since the game came out. While I was thinking of using it in Asian themed builds, it works wonders for a tropical setting too. The addition of a third -recolourable- stone set is a must have in my opinion. Especially since there is only two other stone build sets in the game without this DLC. The stone ruins are also unique, and allow one to make interesting disheveled buildings and habitat pieces. The decals are beautiful. From glowin...

Bleeding Edge – Review

Bleeding Edge comes dangerously close to not being recommended, mostly on its price tag. The mechanics are solid, the setting and characters a wonder to behold, the art style and music astonishing…. but it costs £24.99. That’s a lot to pay for a game wherein the players you’re teamed up with can make or break your experience, where victories can be few and far between, and defeats are miserable. Whatever good is masked and what ill is exemplified by the matchmaking, and there’s quite a few things missing for this to ask for the money it does. Ninja Theory’s brawler pits four players against another four, each choosing characters within the Damage, Support and Tank roles. It doesn’t take long to figure out character’s strengths and weaknesses, or th...
