Armello logo sign white title
Over the past few months there have been several games that smoosh (technical term) board games, card games and RPG’s together, Hand of Fate and Dicetiny spring to mind. Although each of them share similar smooshing techniques the elements are brought together in unique ways. Well, now there’s a third to add to your list, Armello. Armello, takes its base […]

witchbrew assault android cactus logo title
Imagine what would happen if you took some World of Warcraft gnomes, strapped heavy weaponry to them and threw them into a Gauntlet style environment. Well don’t bother, because Witch Beam has already done it, in the form of their arcade style twin-stick shooter Assault Android Cactus for PlayStation 4, PC, Wii U and PS Vita. Having trouble picturing it? […]

Chariot Wars Racing Game Steam Romans
Chariot Wars is a Chariot racing arcade game, available now on Steam, that uses the format of Mario Kart but with the loincloth and sandal wearing Romans of yester-century. Unlike Mario Kart, there’s a story. Emperor Hadrian organises a Chariot Race, so that the various noble houses all get to enter try to win and then hopefully wave their metaphorical […]

The Repopulation logo title
The Repopulation, is a kickstarter-funded MMO from Above and Beyond which not only has fully customisable towns but also apparently, no levelling. The no-levelling is an interesting concept, as it’s the levels that push your character and the storyline along. It also stops new players wandering into high-level areas and getting thoroughly splatted. According to the below you can pick […]

The Repopulation, City Building MMO

Windward logo blue seas rpg
Windward is certainly different as far as MMO’s go. In a land where 90% of the MMO’s are filled with orcs, goblins, humans, fireballs and trolls, it’s a refreshing change to play something that doesn’t have any of those things well, except humans, they’re in it. I’ve mentioned Windward a few times before, and it wouldn’t make any sense at all […]

Windward, a different type of MMO

Windward logo blue seas rpg
Windward is now out. I know what you’re thinking, what? No pre-amble, no length prologue about how I covered Windward both here and here. Well, apparently, just a wee, little prologue then. Well, Tasharan Entertainment have stuck to their promises and released windward on the 12th May, (i.e. yesterday) as promised. That’s right. Windward has exited early access and launched […]

Windward Released on Steam

Through the Woods Logo survival horror
I haven’t played many survival horror games recently. I played the hell out of Silent Hill and Silent Hill 2 as well as the first three Resident Evils. Since then, things have kinda tailed off. Maybe, I’m waiting for the right game to reel me in, and maybe just maybe, Through the Woods is the game to do it. Through […]

Momocon 2015 convention atlanta
I’ve posted a lot about Indie Games Development recently. There was this post for a start. Then, and a little more relevantly, I posted about the first annual MomoCon indie game awards, which is taking place at the end of this month. Well, out of a list of over 120 entries, they have finally shortlisted this down to twenty finalists. […]

Magicland Dizzy Codemasters Spectrum
I remember when I first got into gaming. Get ready for this, it was nearly 25 years ago, back in 1991, and computers such as the Commodore 64, Spectrum 128k and Amstrad were on every child’s Christmas list. However, back then the financial element of games was very simple. The consumer bought the game and played it; that was it.  […]

The Value of Escapism

video game cat gamer video games playing
I’ve not bought any new games for a while, but if you’re still having fun playing the ones you have and you’re not exactly burdened with an abundance of time there’s no need to buy new ones, right? At least my approaching-middle-age mind thinks so. I must look into that, it doesn’t seem right. Anyway, the last time I wrote […]
