For a game with such emphasis on being able to step into a giant mech and wreak havoc, this is certainly an odd addition to Titanfall. It’s bound to make for a nice change of pace though, forcing even the most hardened veterans out of their comfort zone!
Welcome dear readers to week 35 of 2014, and our weekly snippets in which our writers pick their favorite news piece and release from the past week. This time, Peter’s getting excited about going to Hell, while Dave delves further into 3D land. Did any of that make sense? It will after you’ve read our picks!
Being able to face the competition in Mario Kart 8 as Link, driving the iconic Blue Falcon from F-Zero sounds like a crazy dream. Or maybe just crazy, but this November it’ll be quite possible, with the release of two new add-on packs for everyone’s favorite kart racer. Additional cups, featuring courses from other Nintendo franchises, are also on the menu.
SimCity 4 may be an aging game, but it does hold up surprisingly well; plus, unlike its more recent numberless relative, it can be played on an unstable Internet connection. Should you feel like dabbling with mods however, like, say, the Network Addon Mod… seems you’re better off avoiding the Origin version. How’s that for irony?
Update: Origin has dealt with the issue and patched SimCity 4 accordingly.
Welcome dear readers to week 34 of 2014, and our weekly snippets in which our writers pick their favorite news piece and release from the past week. This time, Peter’s all about undead PC’s, while Dave looks forward to spending time in court. Did any of that make sense? It will after you’ve read our picks!
Hey hey everybody, and welcome to another edition of the App Wrap Up! We have four iOS trailers for you this week… well kind of. Two of the games showcased didn’t actually have trailers, but there are people on Youtube nice enough to film short amounts of footage to give viewers an idea of what the game is like. You know, like a trailer should? I shouldn’t be harping on about this but it’s really one of those simple things that only helps a game stand out from the crowd, especially when writing a weekly article about iOS trailers themselves (wink)!
Nice to see EA continuing the Game Time fun, with a fully featured (minus DLC) trial of the multiplayer shooter Titanfall. Doesn’t seem like it’s a replacement for the previous addition, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare either, as even Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning™ is still available. As such, Origin fans currently have the option to either trial giant mechs, blast zombies with plants, or embark on a 200+ hour quest. Good stuff.
While GTA Online is certainly no stranger to content patches, they have mostly brought minor additions, like more cars, weapons and a couple extra jobs (fan creations, too). The recent GTA Online San Andreas Flight School update, however, goes above and beyond the call of duty, packing both solo content, multiplayer skirmishes, new aircraft, and even more fun stuff.
Two weeks ago on our revered weekly news wrap-up ‘Snippets of the game industry’ (go with me on this), I talked about the new difficulty modes added to recent release Gods Will be Watching. I made a statement about how the changes made address a universal criticism in the reviews, despite possible intentions from the developers.
When last I played the Baldur’s Gate expansion, Tales of the Sword Coast, I found that region to be quite challenging. More than enough, in fact. But alas, Solaufein is of a different mind, and as such, the Dark Horizons mod came to be, adding fresh encounters and other dangers to the Sword Coast.
Welcome dear readers to week 33 of 2014, and our weekly snippets in which our writers pick their favorite news piece and release from the past week. This time, Peter’s mind is boggled by a reveal, while Dave speculates game development finances. Did any of that make sense? It will after you’ve read our picks!
