Fifty Games are Given the ‘Greenlight’ on Steam.

Steam Greenlight is Steam's way of giving smaller games a chance to appear on Steam by way of a user vote. Fans of titles and even gaming enthusiasts take their turn giving the thumbs up to games which, if enough noise had been made, will end up on the Steam Greenlight shelves, metaphorically speaking, for eveyone to enjoy via Steam. Each month Steam release a handful of games into the wild and this month is a fairly hefty list.

Forced Review.

There are many RPGs that take the top down route for gaming, namely the Diablo series, there are also others that like to integrate puzzles into it's cocktail of meaningless violence to keep it fresh, that way it doesn't go stale and get repetitive. Which brings me to the game called Forced; I never really gave the name much thought as it could have been named “Macho Men Beat the Snot Out of Zombies” and I still would have been intrigued by the trailer that I saw. When it came to around to me actually playing the game I honestly did not know what to expect, other than the fact this game was about violence and a glowing anomaly that follows you around everywhere, so that’s something to look forward to.

Well to me anyway. But to those that kept the faith and the company that still kept its heart beating there is some good news.

Attack on Titan Review.

It isn't very often I find enjoyment in fan made games of a certain type of game, show or comic book. They always seem to be poorly made, badly thought out and horrendously copied clones. But such is life another one is made and comes across my path; however, this one is surprisingly well thought out and well made.

Defend or Break The Undertakers Streak in WWE2K14.

I think it’s time I should be honest with you readers, I love wrestling. I’m not talking about the actual Olympic sport I mean pro wrestling and after finding out about this new piece of news about my favourite wrestler, The Undertaker, I just had to come clean about it.

In WWE 2K14 has now added a new feature for players to defend The Undertakers winning streak or make attempts to destroy it. For those that don’t know back in WrestleMania, The Undertaker managed to rack an impressive winning streak of twenty one victories, yes I am aware that the matches are all scripted with pre-determined winners but I don’t care.
