• Shadow of Mordor’s dubious review code deal revealed by TotalBiscuit

    Published at The Gamer Headlines - 29 readers

    Amidst recent games industry controversy (i.e. #GamerGate, NotYourShield, and the like), one would think that many game publishers and developers would attempt to put a definite end to underhanded business practices, or, at the very least, try to keep them out of the limelight. Unfortunately, that is not yet the case, and Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment/Monolith Produc ...

    Tiny Impressions: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS ⊟ [Tiny Cartridge contributor Francesco Dagostino has played the dickens out of the new Smash Bros. — bet you didn’t know Dickens was an unlockable character — and offers up his enthusiastic impressions here, including thoughts on the “portable” aspect of the new game.

  • Alien: Isolation Review

    PLAY Magazine - - 15 readers - We don’t know if Ridley Scott plays videogames – he seems like the kind of guy that would, though. If he happened to play Alien: Isolation, we can’t help but think of how he’d react to it – we’re sure it must make him feel proud, but uncomfortable at the same time. Alien: Isolation is more than just a survival-horror game – it’s the best Alien game that’s ever been made, impres ...
  • Wot I Think: Alien – Isolation

    Rock, Paper, Shotgun - - 6 readers - By Adam Smith on October 3rd, 2014 at 2:00 pm. Alien: Isolation is Creative Assembly’s first-person survival horror take on Ridley Scott’s Alien. No predators, no marines, no swarms of xenomorphs. This time it’s not war. Instead, we have one space station, one creature and one Amanda Ripley, locked in an apparent cycle of terror.
  • Wot I Think: Gabriel Knight 20th Anniversary

    Rock, Paper, Shotgun - - 10 readers - By Richard Cobbett on October 15th, 2014 at 2:00 pm. Well, 21st Anniversary really, but who’s counting? Gabriel Knight 20th Anniversary Edition is a chance to return to 1993 to re-experience the Schattenjager’s first case, but has it stood the test of time? Note to anyone who hasn’t played it, this is mostly going to be looking at the game as a remake rather than as a brand new adventure.
  • Wot I Think Now I’ve Finished Shadow Of Mordor

    Rock, Paper, Shotgun - - 5 readers - By John Walker on October 6th, 2014 at 5:00 pm. Now I’ve played for a large proportion of the last five days, with the main storyline completed, and a worrying number of the collectibles and side quests ticked off, I feel far more prepared to give a more definitive statement on Middle-Earth: Shadow Of Mordor: I love it.

Ready for the moment when you do eventually weary of the handmade scenarios is PBEM multiplayer (with files and matchmaking handled by Slitherine’s labour-saving PBEM server), a battle editor, and a skirmish generator. The latter produces some very pleasing battlefields and nail-nibblingly close-run engagements, and, thanks…

  • The Legend of Korra Review

    … Welcome to the world of Avatar, a fun, frantic and fluid cel-shaded world with a few problems and lots of enemies. For full disclosure, I have been an unwaveringly loyal fan of the TV series since the very beginning. I sing Secret Tunnel when I’m happy and Little Soldier Boy when I’m not. I laugh every time anyone mentions lettuce leaves…

  • The Legend Of Korra: The Kotaku Review

    The Avatar: The Last Airbender/Legend of Korra universe is a tailor-made for a good video game. It boggles my mind that the much-loved series still hasn't gotten one. The Avatar series, for those not in the know, is about a world in which many people can manipulate the elements—earth, water, air, or fire—through (beautifully choreographed) martial arts.

  • Civilization: Beyond Earth: The Kotaku Review

    … Whatever you do, no matter how tempted you are by the sci-fi setting and purple landscape, don't think of this as a brand new video game. As novel as Civilization: Beyond Earth sounds, as fresh as it looks, and in spite of some pretty big changes it makes in a few key areas, you're much better served thinking of this as a Civilization V mod…

    … the word balance in many capacities so far in this review, however, overall game balance is not only compiled from each component, but is a flowing feature all its own. The good news is, Minimum’s overall game balance is just as good as the sum of its separate parts would suggest it should be. From team spawns to creep zones, I never felt…

    … Following in the footsteps of Bravely Default, Nintendo has released a playable demo of the upcoming Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, creatively titled Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire Special Demo.

    Trevor Gould On October 22, 2014 Review Overview A flawed but unique alteration of the match-three formula. Fans may find enough here for the budget price. Bored o’ those landlover match-three games? Then you’ve found the right game ye’ scurvy scalawag. If any genre is in need of a shakeup, it’s match-three puzzlers.

When you spend so long hoping for the continuation and conclusion of a story that was part of your earlier life, it’s a bittersweet relief to hear that the waiting is finally over. Parting is such sweet sorrow and all that, but it’s beneficial to have some closure. The Longest Journey began…

It's not enough to have once-dead people get up and attack you, for example. They're also wrapped in barbed wire…

    … By Alec Meer on October 22nd, 2014 at 1:00 pm. I came for the shark-stabbing, but I stayed for the underwater potato-farming. First-person survival game FarSky (which was released a few months ago but I’m looking at it now as part of Survival Week) is very much a Minecraftbut. It’s Minecraft but underwater, and it does enough with the latter…

Options are always nice, although I imagine the stylus will be preferred by the vast majority. I really wish there was a quicker retry option however! You can turn on an ‘auto retry’ (strangely off by default) but it can still be a long wait on certain levels…

    … By Robert Florence on October 21st, 2014 at 9:00 pm. Okay, I will show some mercy this week and tell you about a game that isn’t very expensive and is tiny in size. Board games often suffer from being TOO DEAR and TOO BLOOMIN’ BIG, so it’s nice to be able to recommend something that is neither. It’s a game that uses cards to tell the story…
