A nostalgic blast from the past, presented by Vicarious Visions Studios, it’s Crash Bandicoot – Oh god, please, if I hear that opening to the game just one more bloody time, I swear I am going to explode! Just as well the games that opening is concealing are excellent – as we check out this self-proclaimed nostalia induced trip. So if you’re a Crash veteran, or completely new to the franchise, is the N-Sane Trilogy right for you?
Harbour is a worker placement and resource management game, where you play an entrepreneur who has been invited by Dockmaster Schlibble and Constable O’Brady to set up business in their bustling town. You set up your warehouse and take a hard look at how the market is doing before making your first trades. Designed by Scott Almes and published by Tasty Minstrel Games it was first released back in 2015.
Free to play MMORPG, with a serious case of anime, yes it can only be Aura Kingdom. Or, as I like to call it, Anime: the Video Game. But enough joking about what this game is about, let’s look at the positives and the negatives of Aura Kingdom, a game I found in Steam’s many, many free to play titles. But just because it’s free doesn’t mean it’s free from scrutiny, nor is it something to pass up. Let’s get our inner anime on! Believe it! Plus Ultra! Believe in the heart of the cards! Uhh… DRAGON BALL Z! Okay, I’ve said enough anime things now.
Wanna get chased around by Zombies on a series of different maps? Thought Killing Floor 1 was too tough for you? Well Killing Floor 2 is here, but it’s no easier! Grab some friends, buy some guns from the trader and get ready for the next wave, as we’re looking towards the last wave, to fight any boss that comes our way – But how does this compare to its predecessor? Our full review is here!
You’ve just finished a hard day adventuring; You ache and you think you may have a new rash on your leg from that last battle. You’re sure it’s nothing and take some well-earned downtime in the local tavern. Sitting around the table are some fellow adventurers. The drinks start to flow and so do the stories, it’s time for you to become the biggest Braggart.
What do you get when you cross an RPG and a CCG?
Well actually the net result is rather clever. In the game by Defiant Development you sit at a table across from a mysterious figure for a game of cards, moving your token along random layouts that offer challenges, threats, conundrums and opportunities. Each round unveils a sliver of a story, uncovering sidequests and fighting your way to the finish line. It’s a rather interesting little take on a classic format that I picked up during the Steam Summer Sale. (more…)
I found out about #UrbanHeroes from an email that hit my inbox, just before we went to UKGE. Tin Hat Games were promoting their new board game called Dungeon Digger, so I went digging into their history and found out about this superhero based RPG. The last RPG I looked at was Pugmire, which was not a full review, but rather an introductory look. By contrast, this article is a more in-depth look at the #UrbanHeroes RPG; All that I am aiming for here is an overview of the book, and how I feel about it as a person who has played a fair bit of D&D. I aim to introduce you to the “world” so to speak and give an opinion of what I think a game of it might be like.
It was back in October last year that I first supported Family Plot, and I was anticipating its arrival. I have had my final copy for a few months now and thought it was about time that I finally reviewed it.
Creativerse is a title that’s not unlike Minecraft, so you may see people compare the two games quite often. In fact, as a spoiler, Minecraft will be name dropped a lot in this article. However, whilst Minecraft-like games usually don’t appeal to me, Creativerse certainly does. It’s a cute, clean game which is thoroughly well made. Furthermore, servers are really well looked after – So come and take a peek at this beautifully imagined game with us!
