Game At A Glance: Broforce

Title: Broforce Developer: Free Lives What I Think: Broforce is an arcade-style shooter based on explosions and caricature, with the player using heroes based on various characters from classic action movies. When I say “based”, I mean they’ve added ‘bro’ to their name in some way, however tenuous. Broforce is a comedy game that’s actually fun to play; […]Read More

Game at a Glance: Firewatch

Title: Firewatch Developer: Campo Santo What I Think: Firewatch is a game in the same vein as indie darlings Gone Home, Dear Esther, and Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, where the game tries to balance the plates of gameplay, graphics, etc. on the unicycle of a strong story. In some cases, the wheel has fallen off […]Read More

Game at a Glance: Metro 2033 Redux

Title: Metro 2033 Redux Developer: 4A Games What I Think: Another post-apocalyptic game might sound about as welcoming as a bucket of live lobsters in a sauna, but Metro 2033 is different than your standard grey-skies-and-mutants/zombies fare. Firstly, the setting of the Moscow metro with all its dark tunnels and grim history (most of it was constructed by […]Read More

Game At A Glance: Betrayer

Title: Betrayer Developer: Blackpowder Games What I Think: Betrayer is the first game to come at us from indie developer Blackpowder Games, a company made up of developers previously employed by Monolith- the creator of F.E.A.R. It came through Steam’s Early Access program, which has a bad reputation in some circles due to the poor quality […]Read More

Game At A Glance: Luftrausers

Title: Luftrausers Developer: Vlambeer What I Think: Luftrausers is an extremely stylish game that resembles an arcade machine, with its 2D pixel graphics and simple controls. You play as a single pilot and your objective is to survive as long as possible while eliminating varying opposition, from small boats to massive zeppelins.  You can change […]Read More

Game At A Glance: Insurgency

Title: Insurgency Developer: New World Interactive My thoughts: Insurgency is a tactical multiplayer shooter in the vein of Medal of Honor (the good ones, not the panned recent ones) and Counter-Strike. You play as either the security forces or the insurgents, with their inevitable black balaclavas and AK-47’s. The gameplay bears a strong resemblance to […]Read More

Game at a Glance: Sound Shapes

Title: Sound Shapes Developer(s): Queasy Games and SCE Santa Monica Studio My Thoughts: Having downloaded Sound Shapes simply because it was free (on PlayStation+), not much was expected of this strange and colourful little game. After just a short session however the appeals of the game became clear: the importance of sound creates an immersive […]Read More

Game At A Glance: Mount and Blade: Warband

Title: Mount and Blade: Warband Developer: TaleWorlds Entertainment My Thoughts: Mount and Blade: Warband is a Role-Playing Game (RPG) where you take the role of an unnamed and unknown character who has just arrived in the continent of Calradia, which is split between six warring kingdoms, all with their own unique properties, cultures and traits. Your goal is to […]Read More
