Re-Review: Scum

Scum is the survival game we asked for but didn’t want.

Survival gamers regularly ask for depth, complexity, immersion, stunning visuals, realistic survival mechanisms, and when Scum comes along ticking all those boxes, the players abandoned it en masse because it was not the gank fest murder hobo simulator they actually want.

On the flip sid eDeadside Launched as a murder hobo simulator and the same group flood to it, only to leave it en masse upon finding out it was not a deep and immersive survival experience they were hoping for. ....  Read Full Article

Is Youtubers Life OMG worth playing in 2020?

A new Name, more of the Same.

Youtubers Life due to poor sales, botched channel releases and delays never saw the fulfilment of the promises made during its backer/early access stages, and for well over a year languished without update until the developers were about to release a second title (Esports Life Tycoon).

YouTubers Life then received a substantial update which served to a dual purpose, generate goodwill for the developer and advertise Esports Life Tycoon. ....  Read Full Article

Is Call of Duty Infinite Warfare Worth Playing in 2020?

A sadder fate than it deserved.

Infinite Warfare was not embraced by the Call of Duty community, launching to weak player numbers it quickly lost a longterm sustainable player base.

Taking a look at Steamcharts, we can see that is launched to less than a 3rd of numbers that Call of Duty Black Ops III and Call of Duty WW2 enjoyed at launch, overall sold only half the total units that Call of Duty Black Ops III did, firmly placing a nail in the coffin of any possible sequels to the new era of Warfare. ....  Read Full Article

Review: Daymare 1998

Daymare 1998 would be a fantastic free total conversion mod for Resident Evil 2, sadly it’s not a fan mod but a paid standalone title, and that is where the trouble begins.

Voice Acting.

I have played hundreds of indie games and voice acting is often subpar.. the voice acting in Daymare 1998 is truly something else, while some of the characters are passable, others.. and especially the female characters are terrible, calling it high school drama club calibre of acting would be generous. ....  Read Full Article

Review: Wintermoor Tactics Club

Doesn’t Take itself too seriously.

Wintermoor Tactics Club does not take itself or the source material very seriously, and that is fantastic, the world is full of serious turn-based strategy games. In contrast, the Tactics Club take their own lives very seriously you cannot help but smirk at the gentle ribbing of how nerdy Dungeon and Dragons players often are. ....  Read Full Article

Early Access Review: Old World

Civilization finally has not one but two serious rivals in launching 2020, with Old World currently in Early Access and Humankind releasing in 2020 sometime during 2020, its a great time for fans of the 4X genre.

Competition leads to innovation and having played every Civilization title and expansion pack I am excited to see how the presence of two new contenders for the 4X crown will benefit the genre as a whole. ....  Read Full Article

Review: Streets of Rage 4

A sequel 26 years in the making.

Twenty-six years ago, I was seven years old, and only months away from receiving my first games console ( a Sega Master System on clearance sale). At the same time, I had previously played an hour or so of Streets of Rage 2 on a relatives console, I would not experience the series again until May 4th 2020, with Streets of Rage 4. ....  Read Full Article
