I had the pleasure of being shown a pre-alpha build of Stronghold 3 by the Director of Firefly studios, Simon Bradbury, this afternoon. He opened the demo by stating that he didn't feel Stronghold 2 was a bad game, rather that it tried to do too many things and lost focus of what made the first Stronghold game so popular. With Stronghold 3, however, the game is set to return to its roots.   read

The environments of Two Worlds II

Two Worlds was a game I was probably never going to like. Neither a fan of fantasy genres nor having the time and attention span for lengthy role-playing games, it just wasn't built for me. Nevertheless, I still kept eyeing it at the ...

Two Worlds wasn't too hot. I know it. You know it. The people who made the game know it. One person who definitely knows it is villainous henchman Sordahon, who gave up the life of a mysterious brooding thrall to become...   read

Our initial preview of Two Worlds II saw TopWare and Reality Pump show off a game that looked nothing like its predecessor. The team learned from their mistakes and have created everything from the ground up for the seque...   read

Slipknot, Rise Against & more bringing tunes to nail'd

nail'd is the upcoming racing game from Deep Silver and Techland that gives a giant f*ck you to the laws of physics. A game as crazy as this should have a rocking soundtrack and that's just what we're going to get. Songs from Slipknot, Bac...

Preview: Two Worlds II (it's actually fun!)

There are children yet unborn who weep within the bellies of their mothers, knowing they are to be thrust into the same world that gave us Two Worlds. The original RPG from Topware Interactive is so atrocious, so unutterably diabolical that...

I typically don't get along with "realistic" racing games, but I'll love any good racer that does something a little over-the-top. This is why I am somewhat drawn to Nail'd, a new bike racing game from Southpeak Interactive. It trades in realistic physics for sheer speed, and surprisingly it works out quite well. Read on for some hands-on impressions of Nail'd.   read

Two Worlds II debut trailer is all epic n' stuff

Two Worlds II is a game with a hard job. It's got to convince people it's worth buying despite its status as a sequel to the worst RPG made this generation. It's shocking to think Two Worlds ever got a sequel, but watching the debut traile...

We think Dementium II is trying to tell us something

Shop smart, shop Dot-Mart

3D Dot Game Heroes doesn't try to hide what it is and I respect that. One can call it a Zelda clone and they'd be falling right in line with the marketing. Take this brilliantly funny European trailer as an example. The premise is goo...
