• Impressions: Rust’s New Version

      By Matthew Cox on November 26th, 2014 at 5:00 pm. As of last month, developers Facepunch (headed by Garry Newman of Garry’s Mod fame) declared that what was previously known as ‘Experimental Mode’ is now the definitive version of Rust. It now launches by default on Steam, with an option to play on the old ‘Legacy’ servers instead if you’re not ready for change.

    • The Crew – Beta impressions

      First unveiled at E3 last year, The Crew has had my interest for quite a while now. A mix of MMO and open world racer, it comes across as the natural successor to Burnout Paradise. I’ve had the chance to play it a few times at EGX both this year and the previous year to varying results. It was due to have been released by now but another in a string of recent game delays pushed it back a month.

  • Deathtrap (PC) Preview

    … An eccentric mix between Diablo’s hack and slash formula and the traditional tower defense genre; is it crazy enough to work? Deathtrap is NeoCoreGames’ newest offering and is quite a bit different than their Van Helsing series of action/RPGs, which plays mores like your traditional ‘Diablo’ type game, which I mentioned above. There’s a few…

  • Amiibo impressions, as Nintendo joins the toys-to-life genre

    … A short time ago we got to play around with Nintendo’s Amiibo figures ahead of the official launch later this week. Here’s what we thought. Without a doubt, I’m pretty sure that I count as a ‘veteran’ of the toys-to-life genre that was kicked off by Activision’s Skylanders series a few years back. Not only have I played every Skylanders…

    … was then photographed and imported into the game. Even the explosion effects come from filming fireworks. Quick impressions plus some footage below, jazz-chums. It’s very much a shmup, and not, in my brief experience with it, a skyscraping one in any regard other than its aesthetics. It’s a scoreboard jobbie, in which you survive as long as you can in pretty…

  • My First 20 Hours With Far Cry 4

    … games of its calibre. More like Mordor than GTA or Assassin's Creed, Far Cry 4's world is one that only knows violence. Well, I guess there are also driving side-missions too. But what I mean is that the story and setting here put you very clearly behind enemy lines. When protagonist Ajay Ghale is deposited in the fictional Himalayan region of "Kyrat…

  • GameCube controller adapter - hands-on impressions

    …This comes from NintendoLife... The GameCube controller adapter does exactly what it says on the tin: it allows 2001-era controllers to work with your 2012-era hardware. However, the support is not limitless, and as of now only works with the one title. If you must play Super Smash Bros. for Wii U with GameCube controllers then for $20 – or $5…

  • That Moment When LEGO Batman 3 Gets Really Good

    … cosmic geek checklist. Micro-builds utilize smaller LEGO pieces as an economic way to recreate scenes and objects that would be far too massive at standard minifigure scale. Despite the downsizing, the right builder can really bring out subtle architectural features with a micro-build. It's an ingenious way to depict a shrinking world, one that had…

  • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Single Player Campaign Impressions

    … So, I just finished Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Instead of reviewing the game as a whole, as I don’t have any desire or the requisite time to put into testing the multiplayer side of the game enough to offer a fair and thorough critique, I’ve decided to focus my attention squarely on analyzing the campaign. (Yes, some of us do actually enjoy…
