INSIDE is one of those games that you play, and will remember that experience for a long time to come. The game is very much a spiritual successor to Playdead’s other game, LIMBO and it shows in terms of gameplay, aesthetic and overall feel when you’re traversing through these levels, and completing the puzzles. In the game you take control of a young boy with no real idea of where the story, nor the game is going to be taking you.

With the recent release of doom having reignited the excitement that once existed for more traditional shooters, developers: flying wild hog have re-released a remastered version of the 2011 game hard reset which was mostly well received amongst critics. The game takes place in Bezoar, a cyberpunk city with explosive barrels and electricity panels laid around conveniently for you to shoot and create havoc. Given what the game wants to achieve, which is to create a decent and straight forward shooter that is rather focused on the mechanics compared to more modern games that have to go through a whole checklist of things, here the narrative takes a back seat...

The Best Alternative To Call Of Duty Costs Less Than £4

The Steam sales act as the best possible time to try out new games and genres. Low prices mean we’re far more willing to drop money on a game we might not normally be interested in. There’s a fair amount of choice in the current sale. In the grand scale of things, there’s one game that stands out as a relevant title to talk about, Insurgency.
