    • The Gothic Revival: Off The Map

      By Adam Smith on November 11th, 2014 at 3:00 pm. The Off The Map competition is my favourite part of GameCity.

    • Freeware Garden: Beneath The Crimson Moon

      By Konstantinos Dimopoulos on November 18th, 2014 at 11:00 am. Chances are that the average nightmare of an architect looks a bit like Beneath The Crimson Moon, but in this instance the nightmare is narrated by a guilty old woman on her deathbed dreaming she’s a girl. A woman who has run from that guilt for decades and is now finally and cruelly forced to confront it.

    … and passionate content team, it also comes at a considerable expense. We will have to see how many games can and want to afford that going forward. That’s indeed good news. Personally, I would be amazed if someone could pull off the level of detail we can see in Ryse: Son of Rome in a large, open world setting by the end of the generation; maybe in a potential Crysis 4? Let’s hope so. The article Crytek: Substantial Visual Improvements Possible, We Have A Lot of Ideas belongs to Worlds Factory. …

  • Wot I Think: Ryse – Son Of Rome

    … By Adam Smith on October 9th, 2014 at 8:00 pm. Having debuted as an Xbox One exclusive, Ryse has now decided to be an ex-exclusive and is out on PC today. My memories of its reception on Xbox were fairly dim – shiny in that Crytek way but with a short campaign and repetitive combat – and I went in having never even seen the classical carnage…
