FAST RMX | REVIEW

There was something magical about going into an arcade in the 90s. Seeing the latest racing games all lined up with amazing graphics and blistering speed. It was just the sort of experience you couldn’t get at home on a console. As the years have gone on we’ve had games like that arrive in living rooms. FAST RMX has the visuals and the speed that really give you that rush of playing an arcade hit. It’s a...

If You Love The Witcher, Read ‘Blood Of Elves’

Blood Of Elves Novel Cover

Blood of Elves (available from Hachette Book Group), the first full novel about Geralt of Rivia is a testament to how well written the games are. As backward as that statement sounds you need to remember that the novels came first. Written by Andrzej Sapkowski who began the tales in a submission to Polish sci-fi / fantasy magazine Fantastyka in the 1986. The submission was for a contest the magazine was running and Andrzej won third place!...

Shadow Of Mordor Sequel Announced Today – New Trailer

Shadow Of War Trailer 1

The rumors are true! Middle-earth: Shadow of War is the official title of Monolith Productions next game in the series. I LOVED Shadow of Mordor and it’s certainly a title worth checking out to this day. The sequel continues the storyline and really begs to question if we’ll follow the canon at all, or if this really is a wild new tale of Talion versus Sauron where anything can happen. The original seemed to take liberties, but...

Leaked Mega Bloks Set Reveals Potential Destiny Tower Battle

So gamers shouldn’t look too far into this latest announcement about leaked Mega Bloks Destiny sets, however one interesting detail has emerged. One set focuses on a battle that occurs against the Cabal in the Tower on Earth. Many are speculating this is a nod to Destiny 2. Other leaked information has suggested that the Cabal would be...

The Intro To Torment: Tides of Numenera Has Me Hooked

Torment TON Title

In a pleasant surprise today, inXile provided me with an Early Access key to Torment: Tides of Numenera. I have to admit, it’s taking a LOT of willpower to not just get back into the game and ignore my regular duties. One kicker that is keeping me away is I don’t know if my early access save will carry over or not, so there is that at least. That and responsibility and all that good stuff of...

theHunter: Call Of The Wild Has Some Amazing Visuals

theHunter Call Of The Wild

Sport hunting titles seem like they’ve been around forever. I remember back in the 90s playing Deer Hunting simulators that felt like DOOM mods. It’s a genre that has quite a history. Even GTA 5 had deer hunting, let alone the entire hunting section in Yakuza 5. That long lineage makes it difficult to create something new. theHunter: Call Of The Wild is a game that has been in development for a decade, with much of it’s...

Rising World Is A Fun Minecraft Alternative To Explore

There are tons of Minecraft like titles out there and it’s hard to tell what isn’t just more of the same. Back in the earlier days of the series, many indie titles filled the gap of similar games on Xbox 360 before the titan of voxel building made the leap to consoles. There’s one thing that I always wanted in a game of this type though, and that was smoother landscapes. EverQuest Next: Landmark had a style...
