Challenge Scot End of Year Announcement

Hello everybody! This is just a wee announcement to let you know that Challenge Scot is going on a little hiatus until January. I work a full-time job and make these videos in my free time, but as we race towards Christmas and New Year's I'm finding myself with less free time and even less energy.

Crowbar in Half-Life 2: Lost Coast - Challenge Scot

This week's challenge takes place in Half Life 2: Lost Coast, in which I must beat the entire level using nothing but the famous crowbar. Freeman is pretty proficient in crowbar combat, but there are some enemies that even the mighty crowbar cannot defeat...

No weapons in Hotline Miami Part 2 - Challenge Scot

So, last week I may have dropped the ball a little bit. Turns out I got slightly ahead of myself and thought I had completed the challenge when I was only halfway through. Whoops! So this week I'm here to finish what I start...

No weapons in Hotline Miami - Challenge Scot

This week's challenge centers on Hotline Miami, in which I have to beat chapter 5 without using any weapons. Even when fully armed, death is mere moments away in Hotline Miami.

Attempting tank theft in GTA V Online - Challenge Scot

This week's challenge is in Grand Theft Auto V in which I attempt to steal a tank from the military base whilst playing online. You die pretty quickly in GTA V and the military don't take too kindly to people trying to steal...

Death from above in Battlefield 3 - Challenge Scot

This week's challenge is in Battlefield 3 in which I attempt to run over an enemy player whilst piloting an air vehicle. With so many other players ready to blow me out of the sky combined with my lack of piloting skills, this might be just beyond my grasp! If you've got any ideas for future challenges you'd like me to have a go at, feel free to leave them in the comments!

Joining Modern Warfare's Mile High Club - Challenge Scot!

This week's challenge is in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare in which I must beat the "Mile High Club" scenario on veteran. I've never really been super into the Call of Duty games, so my chances of successfully completing this rather notorious challenge are not high! If you've got any ideas for future challenges you'd like me to have a go at, feel free to leave them in the comments!

Challenge Scot: Running solo in Left 4 Dead 2

This week's challenge is in Left 4 Dead 2, in which I was tasked with completing the first chapter of No Mercy on expert and without any bots to help me.

Running the length of Liberty City while most wanted

This weeks challenge is in Grand Theft Auto IV, in which I need to run across all three islands, on foot, to get to the airport, all whilst having a six star wanted rating. Liberty City is a big place and there are many trigger happy cops in my way! If you've got any ideas for future challenges you'd like me to have a go at, feel free to leave them in the comments!

Preview: Anno 2070

Anno 2070 is the latest installment in Ubisoft's popular strategy series. For the first time, the series takes place in a near-future setting, bringing all kinds of new challenges for fans both new and old. We got to take a look at Anno 2070 at gamescom, and I’m already scared how much free time I’m going to lose to the title.

Preview: Lollipop Chainsaw

Excitement is high for Suda51’s newest game Lollipop Chainsaw. A hack and slash game starring an 18-year-old cheerleader killing zombies with a chainsaw -- what’s not to be excited about? We took a look at the game at WB Games' upcoming title at gamescom. If you think zombie killing games are all the same, then you’re in for a pleasant surprise.

Preview: Anarchy Reigns

Anarchy Reigns is an over-the-top, fast paced brawler set in a futuristic post-apocalyptic world. Although the game stars many characters from MadWorld, it is not a direct sequel and the storyline is completely separate. We were invited to sit down in Sega’s booth at gamescom where we got the chance to get some hands-on time with one of Anarchy Reigns’ multiplayer modes.

Impressions: Space combat in Starhawk

What could be better than jumping into a giant mech, blowing up some buildings, then transforming into a jet and reigning death down on your enemies from the sky? How about doing all of that in space! Lightbox unveiled the long-awaited space combat in Starhawk for the first time at gamescom in Cologne. If you were expecting it to be Warhawk in space, you wouldn't be far off.

Feel the Hatred: Sephiroth

[It's not a theme about hating stuff in videogames without a blog about Sephiroth. -- CTZ] Final Fantasy VII was the first proper RPG I’d ever played. I think my favourite game prior to that was probably Sonic the Hedge...
