Is Evolve Going Free-To-Play? *Updated* Officially Confirmed as Free-To-Play

Evolve, the game known more for its ridiculous pre-order DLC, is counting down to something.   The official site currently displays a countdown timer with the hashtag #StageUp. What could it mean? There’s been no press releases or any official word so far. With the amount of content currently on the market for the game, could Evolve be going free-to-play? Given how popular the model is, allowing for premium to be sold with a more appealing angle, it could be the next step. Evolve was never a ‘bad’ game, it was just a victim of greed and wing clipping for a cheap buck. Its pre-order DLC was announced before the...

More Of The Same, Just With Easy Loot – The Division’s Underground Expansion Review

More Of The Same, Just With Easy Loot – The Division’s Underground Expansion Review

Ubisoft’s The Division has been all over the shop since its initial release last year. Continued experimenting with ways to improve the game has produced mixed results. The first major expansion, known as ‘Underground’, is yet another attempt to freshen the game up, but is it successful? The main feature of Underground is the randomly generated areas, forming the core of the game. As you’d expect from the name, all of these areas are set within the sub way. Each area hosts a set of core games, all of which still require masses amount of shooting. There’s a fair level of challenge at play, even on the basic setting. With...

Limited Fun With A Flair of Old School – Hard Reset Redux Review (PC)

Limited Fun With A Flair of Old School – Hard Reset Redux Review (PC)

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 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. We’ve all heard people cry out for a alternative to Call of Duty and other shooters in the same vein. Insurgency is exactly that, the perfect retreat from shooters that focus on instant gratification over tactics or skill. Brutal and unforgiving, Insurgency does not...

Solid Action-RPG Thrills With A Story To Tell – The Technomancer Review (PC)

Solid Action-RPG Thrills With A Story To Tell – The Technomancer Review (PC)

* Review based on the PC version of the game* The modern video game market has shifted greatly in the last decade or so. Triple A games and indie titles share the same space, often leading some to believe that they are the only option. Found slotting in the middle of the two giants is the middle market. The gap between big budget and small scale games, a market left somewhat unappreciated. Publisher Focus Interactive has established themselves firmly as the modern leaders of the middle market. Pumping out games such as Styx, Sherlock Holmes and a healthy line of Warhammer games, they’ve garnered quite a reputation for themselves. French...

Battleborn’s Poor Matchmaking & Microtransactions Continue To Sink The Game

Battleborn’s Poor Matchmaking & Microtransactions Continue To Sink The Game

Battleborn’s hardships have no end in sight. As a fan of the game, I’ve invested around 35+ hours in the game. The combination of MOBA and shooter elements had me hooked. Interesting characters and mechanics kept the game fresh, for a time at least. Critical and user reviews had been rather positive, including on Steam user reviews. The honeymoon period is over. Battleborn’s rating now sits at ‘mixed’, with a number of players becoming disillusioned with the game. There’s a number of reasons to why Battleborn is dropping players as the weeks go by. Matchmaking has been a mess since release, often setting low levels against high levels. It’s a...
