Here’s a quick little weekend heads-up for all you Smite players; on Tuesday, when Ratatoskr launches, if you go to Smitepedia (a wiki dedicated to Smite) and click on the appropriate banner, you’ll not only get Ratatoskr for free, but you’ll get his recolor for free as well. The catch is that you need to… Continue reading
When I was a kid, and watching Toy Story for the first time, one of my takeaways from that movie was how fun it would be to be a toy. Not just because I wouldn’t have to eat vegetables or go to school, but because if I was a toy, than all the other toys… Continue reading
I’ve always been a bit on the fence about the whole Disney Infinity, Skylanders, and Amiibo craze. I like the idea of having little action figures that I can make come alive in my video games, but I also don’t like the idea of having to make room for those little action figures. I’m just… Continue reading
The latest video for Battlefield Hardline centers around the new, Criminal Activity content pack. This is the first major content pack for Battlefield Hardline, which released back in March.
The pack introduces new maps, weapons, weapon attachments, vehicles, masks (Dead Space fans will dig one of the new masks), and a new game mode, into the Battlefield Hardline experience.
We’re Not In Karkand, Anymore
The content pack brings four new maps into the mix, and the reveal trailer gives us a quick glimpse of the four maps. Code Blue looks to be an indoor/outdoor map, set around the Blue Eclipse nightclub which is well stocked with neon lights and has a luxurious skybar for snipers to setup camp upon. The Beat, on the opposite end of the living-large spectrum, is set in a rough-looking neighborhood where the buildings are all jammed together and run-down. Black Friday is, you guessed it, set in a large shopping mall, and Backwoods is set out in the woods in an area that looks straight out of an episode of Justified.
Battlefield Hardline: Criminal Activity goes live for EA Early Access subscribers in June.
Today Humble launched the Humble Nindie Bundle, a games bundle featuring Nintendo 3DS and Wii U titles. All eight games in the bundle are from independent developers (get it? Nindie…Nintendo + Indie?), so you won’t be finding Mario or Pikachu in the mix, but you will find some top-tier indie games. Humble Bundles tend to… Continue reading
Before I begin my review of Flame Over, I should make my opinion on roguelikes clear: I often enjoy the genre, but only a small fraction of roguelikes have been able to truly hold my attention for longer than a week. Usually I find roguelikes too random and harsh, especially when the player loses control… Continue reading
Growing up in Florida during the 90s, I was raised around the constant threat of hurricanes. All throughout the summer months we lived wary of the words “tropical depression” popping up on the news. With hurricanes, we’d have days, sometimes even weeks, to anticipate the storm’s arrival and adhere to the proper preparation and evacuation… Continue reading
Total War: Arena is Creative Assembly’s free-to-play spin on the Total War franchise.
Featuring 10v10 multiplayer combat, Total War: Arena challenges players to think strategically as they control three units of soldiers, headed by a central, historical figure.
Total War: Arena is currently in Closed Alpha testing, but those interested in partaking in future tests can register on the game’s official website.
Today, Zen Pinball released a trailer showing off their upcoming Portal-themed pinball table. In the trailer we get to see Chell, GLaDOS, Peabody, and Wheatley, doing Portal-things as the player bounces the ball around the game. The Portal Zen Pinball table will be available for $2.99 for PlayStation 3/4, Xbox One/360, and PC. Android and… Continue reading
The Little Crane That Could has reinforced the fact that I am under-qualified to operate machinery larger than a riding lawnmower. During my experience playing the game, I flipped my vehicles no less than twice in each level, —but always managed to right myself back up, so I get some points for that, right? Currently… Continue reading
