Super Powered Battle Friends Looks Like 2D Smash Goodness

Super Powered Battle Friends Looks Like 2D Smash Goodness

I remember back when I was just a wee lad and my friends and I would haul a television and an N64 console outside onto his front porch and play Super Smash Bros all night long while sipping on cokes and munching away on cheetos and chips. Ever since then I’ve been a huge fan of games like Super Smash Brothers and I’m constantly looking for new games that delve into that formula to scratch my constant Smash itch. So you can imagine my glee when two friends of mine in the development community started developing their own 2D smash-like game called Super Powered Battle Friends (originally titled Wolf Pack...

These are three worst things about Battlefield 1 -     Scaled Back Destruction - For a game set during a time where the power of explosives and artillery was stunning the masses, not much can really be blown up.

No Man’s Sky Backlash Represents A Possible Consumer Turning Point

No Man’s Sky Backlash Represents A Possible Consumer Turning Point

No Man’s Sky may be Steam’s most poorly reviewed game, but that doesn’t reflect the game itself. If Hello Game’s product was merely disappointing, maybe even bad, no one would have been talking about the game this late after release. Reaction to the game speaks volumes about the state of the modern industry, at least from the consumers point of view. Some critics and publications may have went into overdrive trying to defend the game, but the consumers had no time for it. No Man’s Sky was sold on lies, not just a few white ones either. From features being promised then revoked only to be subsequently hidden under stickers...

When Is A Game’s Player Base Truly Toxic?

When Is A Game’s Player Base Truly Toxic?

Overwatch, Counter-Strike: GO, DOTA2, League of Legends and even Rocket League. All of these games have one thing in common, but it’s critical praise. Toxicity within the communities is a something nearly every player will experience. We’ve all played a fair amount of matches peppered with insults, trolling and rage quitting. The problem isn’t exactly new, every single multiplayer games suffers from the same problem. With popularity comes a wider audience, thus the exposure to toxicity becomes greater. The definition of ‘toxic’ within game communities is seemingly shifting however. Competitive play represents the core of most multiplayer games. Those who wish to enjoy quick, more casual, matches have plenty of...

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...
