Unturned – Early Access Preview

When myself and my friends decided it was time for a gaming night I remembered watching Yamimash playing a game called Unturned. Graphically the game was not impressive, but when the video started off with Yami and the gang driving around in a car, looking for supplies I wanted to give it a go as well. So, we downloaded the game (it was only 50 MBs in download size) ran it without a hitch and jumped face first into the world of cubes and zombies. So, was it worth the three or four hours we spent playing it? Is it still fun now as it was back then?

While this screeny was staged you should normally way more zombies chasing after you.

The Moon Silver – A Short Story in Video Game Format

Over the years Video Games have been more and more often used as a way of telling stories in novel ways. Moon Silver is another one of such stories. Rather than focusing on quick-paced gameplay or flashy graphics it tries to tell us a story, but there is a certain catch. Moon Silver does not tell you the whole story, instead it gives you numerous pieces and you have to gather them up to then realise what exactly has happened, and perhaps most importantly learn who the character is. I have decided to approach this review as one would approach a book or a piece of art, I will focus on the story itself, how it was presented and only interfere or interject where something has clearly broken my sense of immersion.

What is this mysterious room, and its role in the story?

War Thunder: Flying a Plane During Ground Forces Battles

During Ground Forces battles it is the tanks that complete the vast majority of key objectives, thus allowing their team to win. That does not mean that planes have no role themselves. In fact I would say that they may easily turn the tide of battle, with a single bomb. However, flying a fighter or bomber during these battles is not easy. While you might have plenty of experience with flying in the air from Arcade, Historical and Simulation battles Ground Forces Battles take on a different, somewhat more complicated, angle on things and here we will discuss the hazards of flying during Ground Forces battles.
