The game-consoles-as-girls are back, and they’re out for revenge! Or something less severe. Naps, sisterhood, and industry quarreling, chiefly. Welcome to Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory, the third installment in the fourth wall-breaking series.
So the past few weeks I’ve been quite intensively participating in a couple of role-playing campaigns, and there has been some interest in it so I figured I would share some tips on getting into role-playing.
Once again it is March, once again it is the BAFTA Games Awards, this year deciding it’s BAFTA Games Awards and not the previous British Academy Video Games Awards. Once again brought to us by Dara O’Briain, talking a bit faster than usual, though this year brining a new round of games.
The latest game in Idea Factory’s strategy series, Generation of Chaos: Pandora’s Reflection is a departure from its normal fare. They’ve teamed up with Sting, best known for their Dept. Heaven games, to breathe new life into the series. And with notches like Yggdra Union and Riviera: The Promised Land on their belt, it’s safe to say this is a favorable pairing on paper. But I think that’s enough of the name-dropping.
It is rare for a console game to grace the Friday Freeloader, and yet here we are with one of the crown jewels of the PlayStation 3 no less. As of this Wednesday Uncharted 3 multiplayer is now free to play up to a level 15 cap.
In today’s video gaming world, where more and more games are carving out a very specific identity for themselves, it’s a bit refreshing when one comes along every now and again where it doesn’t give you one at all. Drox Operative, may be just that game.
DUST 514 has hit open beta, allowing anyone with a PS3 to join in with one of the most interesting games of the year.
Joe Danger, career stuntman, has certainly made a name for himself over the past few years. His charming motorbike feats on home consoles offered an approachable but challenging platforming experience that won the hearts of many gamers looking for something fresh. After two sterling entries, his managers at Hello Games have decided to move onto something new, but not before giving their beloved hero a send-off. Joe Danger Touch is his final hurrah, but several missteps prevent it from being a positive one.
With the NHL season finally getting under way yesterday, it seems like a good time to tell you all that Out Of The Park Developments are working on a spiritual successor to their previous ice hockey management sim, due out later this year for PC and Mac.
A sequel to Bayonetta is in development at Platinum games. Bayonetta is surely one of the studio’s more popular titles, so this is not so strange. What is strange is that this game is being produced and published by Nintendo, and is releasing exclusively on the Wii U. At the time of announcement many reactions were pretty extreme, both positive and negative.
Just like 2011, 2012 was a year chock full of great games with equally great soundtracks. We were wowed by gaming’s diverse soundscape, from the smaller titles to big releases, and here we share some of our personal favourites.
It has long been the hope of gamers for the walls dividing consoles and PCs to be torn down. From exclusives to features to controls, there have always been factors keeping the two apart. But each generation, we get closer and closer. And the truth is… that hasn’t been a good thing.
We’ve played the games, we’ve made our cases for our nominees, and we’ve now sat and deliberated and voted on our top game of 2012. And we can now reveal that our winner for Game of the Year 2012 is…
My favorite games on the iOS App Store continue the trend that Nintendo’s Wii started in 2006; they utilize simplistic, natural controls to create engaging experiences that almost everyone can play, but few can master. Only a handful of developers have handled this as well as Semi Secret, who defined an entire genre with the “endless runner” known as Canabalt. These mad geniuses of design have returned with Hundreds, which might be their easiest/hardest game to date.
You’ve seen our nominations, now you get to pick your choice for Game of the Year. Select from one of our nominated games, or add in your own. We’ll announce the winner of the public vote alongside the writers’ vote on New Year’s Eve.
