Have You Played… Game Of Thrones: The RPG?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 May 2016, 10:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. No, not that Game Of Thrones game. The other one. The one no-one talked about. The RPG one. The one that was, confusing, based mostly on the books but had some TV people […]

You can play the new 'Legend of Zelda' early in New York City
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 May 2016, 10:42 am

You won't be left out of the E3 festivities just because you can't make it to Los Angeles for E3 Live. Nintendo is giving gamers in New York City an opportunity to play The Legend of Zelda for the Wii U between June 14th and June 19th if they're willing to jump through a few hoops. To start, you'll have to show up for a "Super-Fan Signup Day" at Nintendo's New York store on the morning of June 11th to have a chance of playing. If you're one of the 500 people to make the cut, you'll have to line up at the store on June 14th to get a wristband and make an appointment for some hands-on time.

Captain America: Civil War
Posted by A Green Mushroom [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 May 2016, 10:00 am

Captain America: Civil War is really good.  It's probably the best thing the Marvel Cinematic Universe has created so far.

It has so many heroes but still manages to fit them all into the story organically, give them their time to shine, and keep the pace of the story moving along.  It's a huge accomplishment and I can't believe they pulled it off successfully.

It's about two and a half hours but it doesn't waste any of it.  Civil War never feels like it drags or slows down too much.  It keeps moving and stays interesting throughout.  From the tense conversations to the direct confrontations it held my attention the entire time.

It feels like they earned this movie through a lot of hard work and set up.  It doesn't feel phoned in or cheap.  It was visceral and difficult to watch this team we know tear itself apart.  This is the benefit of setting up the MCU with so many movies before making the heroes come to blows with each other.

Not only do they manage all this, but they also successfully introduce both Black Panther and Spider-Man in interesting ways.  Now I really want to see solo movies for both of those heroes!

If you've generally kept up with the Marvel Cinematic Universe until now you need to see this entry.  It's amazing.

Just when you thought Goat Simulator [official site] couldn’t get any stranger, eh? Beyond the basic premise itself, the parkour update, the MMO spin, GoatZ, the I Am Bread collaboration, the PayDay 2 crossover…deep breath…the latest expansion is taking the bleating blighter on a journey into outer space.

The barbarians are at the gates. They’re not here to kick the gates down and storm the city though; instead, they retreat, in the direction of the camp that spawned them. “You might want to send a warrior after those barbarian scouts,” Firaxis’ Pete Murray advises, watching the screen over my shoulder. “They’ll fetch a […]

WildStar’s Steam page has been updated with an apparent launch date: June 1st. The Steam page itself went live sans promises back in April, but concerns over lingering rounds of layoffs, the cancellation of the Chinese launch, and poor financial performance in the preceding quarter had sparked worries for the future of the game. Earlier this month, Carbine announced new [...]

'Hohokum' developers make a roguelike full of loot and cute
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 May 2016, 9:30 am

It's been less than a year since Honeyslug, the trio behind games like Hohokum and Super Exploding Zoo disbanded to pursue solo projects. Today, we're seeing one of the first such efforts, Loot Rascals, a roguelike strategy game.

Loot Rascals is the first title from Hollow Ponds, a new studio founded by Nikki and Ricky Haggett, both of who were on the Hohokum team, the latter as lead designer. Also working on the game are artists Swatpaz, an animator for Adventure Time, and Meowza, who worked on Alphabear and Road Not Taken.

Come See Unreal Tournament’s New Underland Map

I still find it strange that Epic Games are making a new Unreal Tournament [official site], that’s out there right now, free to download, yet folk aren’t screaming from the rooftops about it. The late 90s/early 00s this ain’t, my friends. Of course, the lack of fanfare is mostly down to the way this multiplayer […]


Deadlight: Director’s Cut Out June, Survival Mode Deets
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 May 2016, 7:39 am
I was pretty torn with sidescrolling platformer/survival ‘em up Deadlight when I first played it a few years back. For the most part, I enjoyed its zombie apocalypse narrative, its challenging gauntlet sequences and its wonderfully bleak presentation, however really struggled with certain jarring features – like how the protagonist would instantly drown upon impact […]
