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.

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.

This is what my plane flying tends to look like during Ground Forces battles.

Team Fortress 2 – Expiration Date

Valve never ceases to surprise me with their shenanigans, and this time they hit a jackpot, at least with my funny bone. Expiration Date is a short film that was released on the 17th of June 2014, featuring all of Red Team. The Plot is simple, Red Team return from a successful mission and while resting the Engineer and Medic make a shocking discovery. Apparently the teleporters they used to this point caused massive tumors (this conclusion coming from what happened to bread that was teleported) and that the team had only three days left to live. In between this is a another plot of the Scout trying to ask out Miss Pauling for a date (the Administrator’s assistant) but will he succeed? Who knows?

FTL: Faster Than Light – Advanced Edition Mini-Guide

The FTL Advanced Mode unlocks new equipment, systems, race and ships. In this guide we will discuss some of these new changes so that you can see what manner of new possibilities you have when it comes to your FTL Games, in Advanced Mode. Personally I found these new additions to expand the possibilities of your ship, even if sometimes obtaining the necessary bits and pieces can be expensive or time consuming. This guide will be devided into a number of sections, focusing primarily on the new Systems, the Lanius Race, the new player ship and the new weapons at your disposal. If you are looking for a guide focused on the core, vanilla game please follow this link to our general FTL Guide.

FTL

The Mantis Cruiser Type C is a bit difficult to use. It lacks any offensive weapons, and instead comes with two types of bombs that are meant to stun enemies and hinder their movement. It is a very difficult ship to use at first.

Kenshi – Preview

What I personally like about new Studios is that they want to be-dazzle the audience with something new. In the case of Kenshi what allured me was a mildly big world, with an interesting combat mechanic, and the option to either go Solo, become a “Band” or create your own Outpost or Town. While it’s still not quite there (plenty of bugs, some crashes, and that general feeling of “There could yet be more!”) I found it enthralling for a number of reasons, and here you will learn what they are.

Kenshi

Kenshi’s map is sizeable, and one of the most impressive technical feats in the game is that you can jump from one end of the map to the other with very short loading times.

Deus Ex: The Fall – Review

Deus Ex: The Fall

Today’s review is going to be the just released (18th March 2014) Action RPG/FPS Deus Ex: The Fall. Deus Ex: The Fall was developed by Eidos Montreal & N-Fusion Interactive, and published by Square Enix.

Storyline:
Deus Ex: The Fall picks up where the novel Deus Ex: The Icarus Effect left off. Ben Saxon and his newfound partner, Anna Kelso, are on the run from the Illuminati and their top assassination team, a covert squad of elite super soldiers codenamed The Tyrants.
Ben and Anna are laying low in an effort to avoid certain death at the hands of Tyrants, but soon their supply of neuropozyne, a drug required by augmented people to help cope with their mechanical limbs or implants, begins to run low. Ben takes to the streets of Panama in an effort to procure a lasting supply of this vital drug before Neuropozyne withdrawal finishes what the Tyrants have failed to do.
Soon, however, Ben is embroiled in a plot that involves not only Belltower, his former employers, but also the Tyrants and the Illuminati. Can Ben survive long enough to uncover their plot and stop their latest scheme, or will this be where he falls.
Score: 5/10

League of Legends: Top Ten Most Annoying Champs

League of Legends has a wide selection of different champions that you may purchase, or you may end up playing against. Among all those champions will be those you will learn to love, and hate, with a passion. This list of our own Top Ten List of the most annoying League of Legends champions. Now, to make it absolutely clear, these champions will be annoying through their abilities, not simply due to their visuals or name. At the same time, only because a champion could be annoying does not mean that the player you might end up facing will know how to be “annoying”. In order for you to understand what I mean by “annoying” each champion I speak of will have an explanation of his spot on the list.

So, let us begin!
