After teasing the highly anticipated Class update for the Engineer a month back, Valve have finally unveiled the first day of new content for the Engineer class, revealing a highly limited edition Golden Wrench, and a brand new shotgun for everyone’s favorite soft-spoken, sentry building Texan.
Despite Bioware’s desire to stipulate that The Old Republic will have a strong singleplayer aspect to it with its storytelling, it is an MMORPG – so of course, along the way you’ll be grouping up with other people to take on ‘Flashpoints’, TOR’s equivalent to an instanced dungeon. In gameplay footage from E3, released today, the four classes of the Republic – the DPS-dealing Jedi Knight, the support healing Jedi Consular, the tanking Trooper and the jack of all trades Smuggler – work together to repel a Sith boarding party.

Rockstar has a, let’s just say, uncanny knack of having most of its catalog of games highly praised. Sure, you can say that about almost any major publisher, but aside from Manhunt 2, all of Rockstar’s games have been received well by critics and gamers alike. Red Dead Redemption, sequel to Red Dead Revolver on PS2 and Xbox, will probably be no different. I say popular because it’s still early days yet, but after spending a good portion of the weekend playing it, I can’t possibly see anything else happening with […]
A post today on the EU PlayStation Community forums confirmed what has probably been coming for a while now: Sony are terminating the servers for card-battling game The Eye Of Judgment.
Upcoming Square-Enix MMO Final Fantasy XIV has been dated for release on PC for September 22. Which strikes me as quite soon, and very bad timing for my university education. The PS3 version will not be released until March next year. I guess it’s easier to release to PC, fix all the bugs that will no doubt be around for the first few months of the game, then work that all into the PS3 release along with any optimizations.
Announced at E3, the £40/$50 Playstation+ subscription service has been released today along with the PS3 update 3.40. At first look, it seems like Sony are following Microsoft down the pay to play route, but that’s not quite what it is. Playstation+ is entirely voluntary, all the current features of PSN will be available to non-subscribers. Playstation+ simply adds to that.
This is not a review. This is purely the author’s musings about his feelings while playing DEFCON, and is in that sense entirely subjective. DEFCON is not a fun game, to me anyway, which is not to say it’s not a good game, or even an enjoyable game. In fact, it’s a quite enjoyable game; it’s just not a fun game.
Little more than a year ago, the idea of a new game based upon a franchise that had suffered more than a few stinkers in the gaming world being a critical darling would be scoffed at, but Batman: Arkham Asylum took the gaming world by surprise and showed people that it could be done. War for Cybertron is the Transformer franchises’ Arkham Asylum – and while it is easy to leave the review there and call High Moon studio’s shooter an absolute gem for simply being a sucess, being the […]
After a roaring success with the first episode of the Doctor Who Adventure Games, City of the Daleks – which was download over half a million times within the first 12 days of its release – Sumo Digital turn their hands to another of The Doctor’s most infamous enemies: The Cybermen are back! Does Blood of the Cybermen build on the good groundwork that City of the Daleks created, or should it be deleted as an inferior being?

If you talk to many a cantankerous old gamer you’ll hear about how easy today’s games are how much more challenging games were back in the day. The story usually goes something like this: “Back in my day we had a limited number of lives and you’d be lucky to get any continues. Saved games!? Forget about it sonny!” At this point you get rapped atop the head with a cane. It may be true that gamers today have unlimited lives and quicksaves but lets go back and look at […]
