Game Dev Tycoon – Stimulating Simulation

Game Dev Tycoon – Stimulating Simulation

A game has popped up on steam called Game Dev Tycoon, I had originally just pegged it for another stupid simulation game like the thousands that have been infecting steam lately. What I got I was surprised with, a well thought out and very entertaining simulation of a starting up indie developer

Dark Souls 2 – A Game Without Soul?

Dark Souls 2 – A Game Without Soul?

Like many of you I was so overjoyed at the release of Dark Souls 2, it was hyped up to be an amazing game, and while I played it I certainly thought so, but I’ve recently gone back to the first Dark Souls and it’s really made me think harder about its successor. While Dark Souls 2 is a very fun and interesting game, as far as the souls universe is concerned I don’t think it was on par with Dark Souls or Demon Souls for that matter

Does $500 Million Spent on Destiny Guarantee A Quality Experience?

Does $500 Million Spent on Destiny Guarantee A Quality Experience?

There was a recent announcement that the production cost of Destiny will be close to $500 million. Although this isn’t just development costs seeing as it includes advertising and other not strictly development costs, it’s still a lot of money that’s technically being spent on the game

Borderlands 2 Vita: First Impressions

Borderlands 2 Vita: First Impressions

As I’m sure many of you are aware, Borderlands 2 released yesterday for the PlayStation Vita, packaged into the new Vita Slim bundle. Yesterday morning, I knew I wasn’t going to pick up the Slim, but was still undecided on Borderlands 2. Was it really worth re-purchasing a ported version of a game I’ve already played? After watching a few gameplay videos and realizing that people were ebaying voucher codes for cheaper than retail, I decided to snag one. Impulse buy

Hero Look: Fract OSC

Hero Look: Fract OSC

The first Hero Look in the feature is a game called Fract OSC. The game is a mixture of puzzle elements with music sequencers or other music influences. By the end of the game it was enjoyable just to walk around and puzzle solve even if the puzzles took a while

MCM Comic-Con (My first convention)

I attended my first convention during the weekend, the MCM Comic-Con. It takes place in Ireland in the capital of Dublin. I have to say I was nervous; I took the long bus ride to the convention. It was my first convention, and I didn’t know what to expect

Information is still a little on the thin side but we do know that H1Z1 will utilized SOE’s proprietary next-gen Forgelight engine, the same engine used in PlanetSide 2, and we also know details surrounding some of the games features

Reasons to be Cautious of Destiny

Reasons to be Cautious of Destiny

When Destiny’s gameplay demo was shown off at E3 2013, gamers went wild. It was one of the bigger games shown at E3, and it was a nice change in pace from yet another Call of Duty, or even another Halo. It’s also at the top of many “Most Anticipated in 2014″ lists, and there’s definitely already a level of hype around it

What to Expect from Evolve

What to Expect from Evolve

Evolve’s multiplayer looks like an extension of Left 4 Dead multiplayer, but arguably at a lot faster pace. Players take one of two sides – the hunters or the hunted. The hunters are a group of 4 individual classes with one common goal – kill the beast and prevent it from destroying the objective. While it isn’t quite known what exactly “the objective” will be, it is likely that it will simply be something that the monster will have to destroy before being killed by the hunters, specific to each map

Watch Dogs Hype Train Derailed

Watch Dogs Hype Train Derailed

Don’t get me wrong, Watch Dogs looks like a phenomenal game and I really hope that it delivers. I think with the release approaching quicker than ever, some of the lost hype will naturally start to pick up again. It was sad, though, to have so much excitement for something only forget about it for months on end

Questioning The Dark Souls 2 SL150 Meta

PvP Soul level meta has been a rather hot topic amongst several forums in the Dark Souls 2 community. For those who are new to the series I will offer a quick history lesson: Whenever you wanted to PvP in the previous souls games you needed to find opponents around your own soul level, thus a SL meta was established to increase these matchmaking odds

Titanfall, is it worth our money?

Titanfall, is it worth our money?

Is Titanfall worth the price they’re charging for an only multiplayer experience? With EA charging sixty dollars or more for just a multiplayer experience it really does bring to question if it’s worth our money
