Posted on December 24, 2015 at 12:55 pm

Materfall is one of the games set to be released in 2016 that looks very promising. It is in the Sci Fi genre and looks to be a first person shooter game, although there is a possibility of it being otherwise.

The game is set in a futuristic world that has been infected by an alien material known as Smart Matter. Judging by the previous games the developer team is responsible for, such as Resogun and Dead Nation, expect more of an arcade like gameplay.

You play through the game as an unlikely hero who has some control over Smart Matter, although instead of the red colour that your enemies have, your Smart Matter is blue.

The game is set to be released in 2016 (exact date yet to be specified) on PS4 only, so PC and Xbox gamers only are out of luck on this one!

Counter-Strike:GO Crate Unboxing!!!

Posted on April 13, 2015 at 8:11 pm

Sweeping internet video streaming sites is a unique past-time called crate unboxing watching.

Opening a crate in Counter Strike is essentially like pulling the lever on a fruit machine. To open a crate the player needs to buy a key (about £1.30) they then need to use the one-time use key to open the crate. Crates are dropped randomly in-game but can also be purchased for a few pence.

Upon doing so a moving panel of Counter Strike items ticks past on-screen. The player then just waits and prays to Gaben (an inside joke for players) for the ticker to stop on a hopefully rare item.

It is admittedly addictive to watch people who’ve sometimes spent hundreds on keys and crates, to go on a unboxing spree, opening them in rapid succession and getting that little adrenaline buzz each time the ticker slowly passes by a StatTrak AK-47 Cartel.

CS:GO And Its Unique Economy

Posted on March 11, 2015 at 3:15 pm

CS:GO (Counter-Strike: Global Offensive) is a traditional online shooter. Traditional in the sense that it uses gameplay mechanics first seen a the original ‘Counter-Strike’, a game released 16 years ago.

Traditional in this sense but CS:GO has a unique and very modern player driven economy attached to it.

Available in the game as random drops are crates. These crates can be opened with keys that are available for purchase in game. Also linked to the game is a virtual marketplace where players can sell crates and the contents of crates alike. The crates contain weapon skins for use in the game.

Its quite a complicated system but after playing the game for a short time you pick up how it works.

The interesting thing though is that some of the weapon skins can sell for hundreds of dollars on the in-game marketplace.  This is a lot of money for a virtual item that can only be used in a single game and within actual playtime only.

But it’s the players who decide the monetary value of these items. They’ve decided they are worth this amount of money, so they are worth that much in game.

Wolfenstein

Posted on February 10, 2015 at 2:54 pm

Wolfenstein the new order is a game which has been released since 20th May 2014. Released across game platforms, you can play it on Xbox 360, PS3, Ps4 and Xbox One.

The game is set in an alternative timeline where the tide never turned in WW2, with the start of the game set in 1946, where you play a character who is one of the few remaining USA/UK forces as a prelude to the main bulk of the game.

At the end of this period of the game, you get injured and fall into a coma for 14 years, reemerging in a world in which the Nazi’s took of the entire planet and no opposition remains. In this part of the game you need to gather forces and begin to disrupt the Nazi’s activities.

The game is quite good, although the graphics aren’t quite up to the standard of some of the more recent games, such as the Last of Us, Destiny and Shaw of Mordor, but the gameplay holds its own and the story is interesting and engaging.

The Last of Us Remastered

Posted on January 26, 2015 at 3:59 pm

Everybody in the world of game should have heard of the Last of Us, and ideally would have played it as well. A game right up there with red dead redemption and dark souls, it is a game that everybody should have some experience with.

The remastered version is the new release of the game made specifically for the PS4, fully utilising the more powerful OS they offer, running at a full 1080p and 60fps – making it look amazing.

The game itself is set on the back drop of the end of the world; a fungus which was previously known to only affect small insects has mutated and can now attach itself to human hosts, fully taking over their nervous system and destroying their host’s brains. You play a smuggler in the game, where you have to smuggle a girl from within the quarantined zone of a city to find a group of insurrectionists and deliver her to them. The game is an emotional experience, and offers great gameplay alongside it.
