The Chaos Engine Review

Have you ever sat down with a nice cup of tea in your hand, popped the telly on and watched one of your favourite shows only to spot an actor on screen for three minutes before that nagging question “Where have I seen him before” starts forming in your mind. Now replace “Telly” with “PC” and “Actor” with “Chaos Engine” where you will understand the first impact it had on me. Unfortunately, that was the only comical and slightly enjoyable aspect I received from this game.

Evoland Review

We’ve come a long way in gaming. When the first video game consoles to hit our television screens and gave us the like of Pong we were glued to the screen for hours watching two bars smack a little dot for points. As time progressed so did our technology and we were presented with newer and more powerful consoles, ever expanding the human imagination that we put into video games. From 8-bit pixels to rendered polygons you’d think it was a student’s amateur film, it truly is fascinating how the graphical and fun side to games have evolved. Evoland is one such game that presents the very growth of it and it does it very well.

#ThrowbackThursday: Resident Evil

Before Capcom decided to do what every company does and go about the actions of “Change” I would like to point out to the new generation of Gamers that Resident Evil was never an over the shoulder 3rd person action shooter. It began as a survival horror filled with puzzles, eerie atmosphere and a hell of a lot of zombies. As well as a lot of locked camera angles to make the game far more intense.

Divinity: Dragon Commander Review

For those of you that are Fans of the RTS genre I’m sure you get the greatest of pleasures creating a bunch of troops/cannon fodder, building your base, and raining great destruction on your foes as you conquer them. That’s war in one perspective. Other perspectives would show you from the meat shields point of view, the leader of a squadron sending his men into war and, of course, the ever overlooked diplomatic and political side. But what if you had you had them all together, in one game? Well, add all that to the cauldron throw in some fantasy and steampunk into it and I'll present to you, Divinity: Dragon Commander.

#ThrowbackThursday: The Firemen.

Now there have been a lot of genres throughout the gaming industry, knights saving princesses, aliens invade earth, and the old classic "you are the only one that can stop that evil guy", to name but a few. Now when it’s comes to terms of originality for games, The Firemen, just might have been given a ribbon and a pat on the back. The Firemen? With a name like that surely you play as a couple of guys with the power of flames, right? Well reader, you’re wrong. You just play as a fire fighter, fighting fires.

#Throwback Thursday – Zombies ate my Neighbors.

After seeing so many titles for zombie games it made me think about all the old titles prior to this generation of the Zombie genre in video games. It has made me think about the change between the staggering, limping zombies to the sprinting, punching infected as were calling them now, you know, because they have feelings too. So I thought I’d go back into the past and play “Zombies ate my neighbors".
