The Next Level In Gaming

Back in the late 90′s/early 00′s extreme sport games were at the hight of popularity. I like many gamers out there spent hours trying to nail the perfect tricks on games such as Matt Hoffman’s BMX and Tony Hawks Pro Skater.

The game features the two DLC packs from Sniper [...]

It feels good to be back and writing again for PlusXP! (Cheap pop) Ok enough of that. Hot off the heels of The Order: 1886 being released; the question of morality in gaming has once again reared its ugly head. Sequels, tie-ins, DLC etc. There are so many things for people to complain about nowadays that I’ve just realised I’m complaining about complaining. For now, I’ll delve into the hot topic of longevity in a game. The Order’s length is [...]

Space Invaders, one of the few games ever created that when you mention its very name a huge amounts of nostalgia builds up for a lot of old school gamers and nerds. It is in essence the very first game that got a generation of children hooked on gaming. So when Puppy Games released Titan Attacks, a more modern take on the classic on the granddaddy of all games,  I jumped at the opportunity to give it a shot. My first [...]

With that in mind, Turtle Rock Studios has taken the concept  and introduced their own multiplayer spin to monster hunting with Evolve – A 4 vs 1 multiplayer game that pits four humans against one monster in an all out battle to the death! In Evolve, nature is wiping out the human colonies on a [...]

At this years EGX there was a huge range of games showcased for every games console, with the expo a great chance to show off the best of the latest releases for the next gen. One of the many games that was being shown off was Evolve, a game that definitely peaked my interest.

When you think about a video game with Mechs you think about a pilot physically climbing into a massive robot. Once inside the pilot then proceeds to destroy his/her opponent with an array of oversized weapons, and mighty robot power!  Beyond Flesh and Blood takes this idea and improves upon it – sure, you may still pilot a Mech, but you are doing so in deep space out of harms way.

When the title of a game intrigues, you simply must investigate. When I was tasked with personally overseeing how this particular game performs; I didn’t ask what it was about, how it played, who made it etc. I simply enquired as to what the title was again due to its very bizarre nature.
