Warhammer The End Times: Vermintide was one of the 2015′s best release. The top notch co-op experience managed to build upon the foundations that Left 4 Dead had laid.

Steam Midweek Sale Includes Two of 2015′s Best Games

Steam Midweek Sale Includes Two of 2015′s Best Games

Steam’s midweek sales are packing some serious punch.   Black Mesa is the stand out tittle, costing only £7.49. It may be a fan made remake of Half-life, but its quality is undeniable. There’s a few changes made from the original, but they only enhance the experience. Half Life Source was a rather lacklustre, Black Mesa shows how it’s done. Word of warning, the final Zen stages have not been finished yet, but for £7.49 its still worth buying. Everything Games Workshop is also part of the midweek sale. From Dawn of War to Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, it’s all on sale. Highlights include the underrated Space Marine, End Times: Vermintide...

Steam Weekend Deals include Rocket League and Final Fantasy 14

Steam Weekend Deals include Rocket League and Final Fantasy 14

Steam’s weekend deal is pretty damn good this week.   Last years ‘game of the people’ Rocket League is currently 30% cheaper, resulting in a price tag of £10.49. Rocket League is genuinely one of the most entertaining games on the current market. The sheer level of unpredictable chaos results in hours of fun. Final Fantasy A Realm Reborn has a hefty 50% discount as part of the deal. That includes the core game (£4.99 with a free month of play) along with the Heavensword Expansion (£14.99). Both games are also bundled together in the ‘Complete Experience’ for a cost of £14.99. A Realm Reborn is the rare time a...

Game Deals 18/01/2016: The Division, Rainbow Six: Siege and Farcry Primal Discounted

Game Deals 18/01/2016: The Division, Rainbow Six: Siege and Farcry Primal Discounted

Playing quality games on a budget is no longer a hardship. With plenty of sites wanting your money, there’s deals all over. From specialist retailers, to supermarket, they all have at least one decent offer. It’s the 18th of January 2016, and these are some of the best deals on the internet today.   Rainbow Six: Siege £29.99 It may have the odd rough edge, but Siege is fantastic. The multiplayer action feels fresh, focusing on approach rather than action. Fire fights are intense bursts of action, rarely allowing the players to feel safe. With barely any single player content, waiting for a price drop was more that justifiable. Both...

Latest Rainbow Six: Siege Patch Creates Issues

Latest Rainbow Six: Siege Patch Creates Issues

The latest patch for Rainbow Six: Siege hasn’t exactly done it’s job. Released earlier today, patch 1.2 was set to fix bugs and sever issues. While most of the stated fixes have been a success, others have only made the bugs worse. Matchmaking (both ranked and causal) is taking much longer. Prolonged searches for team members is now a common occurrence. It’s a problem that makes looking for a game a chore, with both sides quitting out. 1.2′s biggest problem is the ‘smoke screen’ bug. After a map has loaded, players become stuck at a single screen. This bug has been documented since release. Ubisoft stated 1.2 would fix this...

Rainbow Six: Siege Adds More Micro-Transactions, More Issues Arise

Rainbow Six: Siege Adds More Micro-Transactions, More Issues Arise

It honestly feels like Ubisoft just can’t help themselves these days. Early last week I looked at the issues surrounding Rainbow Six: Siege’s season pass. The pay-to-win nature of the pass conflicted with Ubisoft’s claim that there would be no split between non-pass holders and pass holders. After looking into the finer details of the pass, Ubisoft’s claims were revealed to be less than honest. Today’s news has saw the whole thing turned upside down however. Information posted on the official Siege site has revealed some very concerning news. ”The data we have suggests that the average FPS player spends 8-10 hours a week playing their favorite FPS (also in-line...

First Track For Friday The 13th: The Game Revealed

First Track For Friday The 13th: The Game Revealed

Yeah, I know, I know. I’m probably driving the readers crazy with my posts about the upcoming Friday The 13th game scheduled for next year, but I’ve been following the development closely, and I’m super excited for what we have in store when we all go visit the virtual Crystal Lake. With roughly $20k to go before the game is fully funded over on Kickstarter, Harry Manfredini the composer for both the game and the original Friday The 13th films has released the first full audio track for the game, and is just a tease of what we can expect when the game releases next fall. If this track doesn’t...

Outlast 2 Teaser Revealed & What I Want To See In The Sequel

Outlast 2 Teaser Revealed & What I Want To See In The Sequel

So, some of you may know that Outlast was one of my favorite horror games in recent years, even though I had the minor complaint of it getting a little repetitive towards the end, but the horror and over-all feel of the game made up for that small stumble. You can imagine my excitement when the teaser for Outlast 2 dropped this morning, from developer Red Barrels. We don’t know much about the sequel yet, other than the developers promise to torture us like they did with those skin-crawling, disturbed scares from the original game, and amazing DLC Whistleblower, which I still consider above and beyond the core game. Seriously,...
