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

Payday 2: DLC Weapons at a Glance

This article will be updated as more and more weapons are released through DLCs, for Payday 2. This will aim at providing you with as much useful information, as I can muster, on a short notice. Since it is a bit hard to get to know all of these weapons quickly I will state when I am more or less familiar with a weapon, so that you know what to expect yourself. As I gain more experience with a specific weapon I will update its information here.

Payday 2 – Weapons Guide

Another Fiction-Guide from myself. In this case I tried to imagine Bain getting in contact with a hardware supplier, in order to obtain guns and other equipment. Those familiar with the game would note how much of this information is accurate and how much of it is fluff. In general I tried to make all of the information as useful as possible while also making it feel “fun to read”. If you are not overly interested in such writing check out our normal Payday 2 – Weapons Guide.

Payday 2: General Weapons Guide

Looking for some general information on Payday 2 weapons? You may find what you are after, right here. Payday 2 has a decent selection of different weapons. Shotguns, rifles and one semi-automatics (as well as saw) from your primary weapons. Pistols, SMGs and shotguns from your secondaries. We will try to discuss each of the weapons available to you (including the saw) so that you may decide what you prefer using. Each weapons has its strengths and weaknesses, so if you were hoping for “Super Guns” there are a few good guns, but nothing without some type of flaw. Looking for a general Payday 2 guide? Look no further. We also recently released this Fiction-Guide which has a lot of fluff. None of this is official information, just a bit of creative improvisation. We now also have a Payday 2 DLC Weapon Guide where we strive to write about the different weapons you can obtain through DLCs.

Payday 2: The Beginner’s Guide

If you are not familiar with the Payday Series, or if you are having troubles understanding some of the game’s concepts, this guide is intended for you. The idea behind this Payday 2 guide is to provide you with all the necessary information to understand what the game, and your crew, might expect from you. This is not a guide that will tell you how to stealth every single heist, that is something you will have to figure out on your own. However, with this guide, you will understand some of the concepts in the game that will allow you to stealth.

When the going gets tough, get tougher.

Payday 2 – Beta Impressions

I enjoyed Payday 1. When I heard that Payday 2 is coming out my first thought was, “They can’t improve it. It’s impossible.”. It’s not that I did not hope we would receive a great sequel, I simply set my expectations very low, so that if the surprise turned out to be sour I would not be as disappointed. Guess what? I was not, in fact I am more than impressed, on many different levels. The graphics are improved, the difficulty is higher, more complexity, more rules, more customization, more everything. If I was ever to give an example of a good sequel Payday 2 would be one of the prime examples.

Gaze upon my mask of doom!

Chivalry Medieval Warfare vs War of the Roses

So, you are divided between Chivalry Medieval Warfare and War of the Roses? I understand, it is not an easy choice. Both games have their own strengths and weaknesses and in this article we will compare the two games. I will not tell you outright which one is better or worse, as I found both games to be entertaining in their own ways. It is all really a question of what you are after from your games, and if you need help deciding read on!

War of the Roses

Even though they look like Agathians these are in fact Men at Arms from War of the Roses.

Middle of Nowhere – Teaser Trailer

Some time ago I wrote about Middle of Nowhere, an upcoming Horror Survival game that has that Silent Hill feel. A few days ago the first Teaser Trailer was released, showing a bit of the gameplay mechanics, the monsters and the environments. While it is clear that the game is still a work in progress, and on the side of the graphics there is still a need for a lot of polish, I am glad we can take this short glimpse into Middle of Nowhere.

In case you did not read our previous article, or you can’t be bothered with clicking the link, Middle of Nowhere is about Issac, Emily’s father. Emily has been suffering a series of strange nightmares, and has often been found sleep walking, away from the house. In an attempt to find a doctor who could help Emily, Issac drives with her in search of a doctor. They crash, and when Issac awakens he finds Emily missing and he is forced to search the strange world of Middle of Nowhere to find her.

As myself and others have noticed, the game does have a certain Silent Hill feel to it. How far will the developers go with sustaining this, and what will the gameplay be like is yet to be seen. My personal hope is en par of something like Silent Hill, where combat, while present, will not be the focus of the game, and instead it will be the puzzles, evasion and the HORROR that will pull on our strings.

There will be an upcoming Kickstarter campaign for Middle of Nowhere, so stay tuned on news about that If you want to learn more about Middle of Nowhere check out their site.

Now, sit back and relax. It is time for the trailer. Do not be prepared for any super-duper CGI. This is some very early gameplay footage (I did find the music to be very good though, there is more of it on their site).

Natural Selection 2: 10 Commander Tips

A position of command is a position of great responsibility. Unless you do not really care for your position that is… That might lead to disaster, sooner or later. Your skills and abilities in Natural Selection 2, as the commander, are the difference between victory and defeat. If you played NS2 long enough you would realise that without a good, competent commander nobody on your team will have any fun, because you will be squashed around every corner. Of course, into account we also have to take the abilities of the individual “soldiers”, but Marines with assault rifles cannot defeat a fully expanded hive, no matter how skilled they are.

The purpose of this guide is to provide some useful tips when playing as either the Alien or Marines commander. Some of these tips apply to both sides, though they differ in usefulness. If this is what you are after, read on! If you need more details on any of the aliens, abilities or marines, check out the Natural Selection 2 Wiki.

Middle of Nowhere – Upcoming Indie Game

So, Middle of Nowhere. The title does not suggest much, does it? I decided to check it out regardless, and I was rather intrigued by what was offered, with my usual dose of skepticism. Middle of Nowhere is a Horror Survival Game, set in the world of “Nowhere”. While so far there are no gameplay videos, we have an opportunity to listen to the soundtrack, read up on the background of the characters and the game itself, and study the different screenshots to see what will await us.

I would not call it overly inviting… But it still better than staying outside, no?
