Demons Age Preview

Demons Age Preview

A number of games have tried to relive the glory days of late 80′s and early 90′s RPGs. Demons Age is the latest offering in development. Although it may be in its early stages of development, there’s still enough to promise interest. Demons Age won’t be to everyone’s taste, this is made abundantly clear within the first half hour. Grid set turn based combat, stat management and plenty of lore are all at the heart of the game. In all fairness, this is very much a love letter to how RPGs used to be. It’s refreshing to have so much control over a characters stats. Every little adjustment can lead...

Engaging Simplicity – This Is The Police Review (PC)

This Is The Police is possibly the most erratic and frustrating management to be released in some time. For all its good ideas and concepts, there’s a glut of niggling issues that result in eye rolls and sighs. With all that taken into account, there’s something still a bizarre charm at the heart of the game. The concept is simple, players must manage the day-to-day running of the local Police department. Selecting which officers work a shift, deploying them to crimes across the city and overseeing the results. Simple, direct and effective. Depth comes in the stats each officer posses, determining how effective they are in the field. Small time...

We Happy Few Is Nothing Like Bioshock, Avoid Disappointment

We Happy Few Is Nothing Like Bioshock, Avoid Disappointment

We happy Few has seemingly got many people confused. When ever you see a gameplay video or Early Access lets play, you’ll be sure to see someone mention Bioshock. The unfortunate thing, at least for them, is We Happy Few has little to no shared Bioshock vibes. Gameplay is based purely on survival, this is not a simple case of shooting your way through. The player is vulnerable, struggling to keep their head above water. Areas are open, allowing the player to explore and discover. Yes, We Happy Few is played in the first person, but that’s one of the few similarities the two games share. The tone of the...

We Happy Few Preview – Solid But Uninspiring

We Happy Few Preview – Solid But Uninspiring

*Based on the Early Access build After creating a lot of buzz, mostly thanks to its tone, We Happy Few might not be the joyous experience many are expecting. At its core, We Happy Few is a survival game with some creepy imagery and themes. The Early Access build opens up a fair amount to play with, but it’s not exactly fun. For all of the world building and scene setting the initial five minutes indulges in, the gameplay is uninspired. Players must take into account thirst, hunger and fatigue. There’s various other effects that need monitoring when trigged, such as bleeding and sickness. Gathering materials and supplies forms the...

The Media Pins Shooting On Video Games. Just Another Witch Hunt

The Media Pins Shooting On Video Games. Just Another Witch Hunt

*Note – As someone who has grown up watching British media outlets sell lie after lie, this post comes from frustration and disbelief. The real topic on this latest event is not video games, for the media to try and frame that way is highly disrespectful towards the victims. They’re not your soap box.   It seems like the media can’t help themselves these days. Fresh off another tragedy, the media has promptly stood onto the fresh corpses in order to use them as a soap box. What’s their topic? Violent video games of course. The case in question is the recent shootings in Germany, in which a young male...

How Well Does Ana Fit Into Overwatch?

How Well Does Ana Fit Into Overwatch?

Ana, Overwatch’s newest hero, has been around for a few days now, but how does she fit in? She’s one of the more curious heroes that doesn’t directly compare to her peers. It’s not a bad thing, even though it has left a number of players seemingly playing her incorrectly. At her core, Ana is more of a secondary healer and crowd controller. Her primary attack heals a fair amount, but nothing that till carry a team. She thrives on situations in which she can stay out of the action. Distance and positioning is key to getting the best out of Ana, even if that means feeling a little left...
