Heat: Not Exactly Selling like Hotcakes.

Saying it up front, wait for Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC. Might as well start the review off with the facts, it’s better to wait 18 months or so and play RDR2, however if you cant wait to get your rawhide on, lets take a look at code}{atch latest early access attempt. For the purpose of this review we will not over focus on the failure of starforge or the less than steller track record Reign of Kings, the

Fractured Space : A Polished Product without Market Appeal.

Boldly going where no man has gone before. Fractured Space is one of the most polished and well developed failures in steams recent history, if any game deserved to do well it was this one, and yet far from doing well, the game has struggled to break 350 peak CCU in recent months, matchmaking times are often measured in the 10s of minutes vs minutes and its only peaked over 1k once in near 2 years, for a game with

The Mean Greens – Plastic Warfare

A Hidden and Neglected Gem. The Mean Greens – Plastic Warfare never made much of a splash in the online multiplayer pvp scene, perhaps people felt it would be childish, perhaps they expected a army men like game with a campaign, there could be a dozen or more reasons why such a solid title simply never generated a sustainable player base. A fantastic Unreal shooter. The combat is simply to pick up, yet a challenge to master, the maps are

H1Z1: Played out all my Cards

H1Z1 is not a bad game, honestly it never was a bad game, while many better games have surpassed it, it doesn’t remove the fact that in and of itself H1Z1 is not a poor quality title. Then why is it dying? Its dying due to 2 main factors, the first is better titles like PuBG and Fortnite have surpassed it, the second is some poor directional changes by the developers, a Ferrari going the wrong way is still a

Tiger Knight: A Decent attempt, but no cigar.

The old Switcharo! Originally this game was released under another publisher as Tiger Knight Empire War, it sold a bunch of fairly pricey DLC, and then sunsetted about a year after release, the developers however took it upon themselves to relaunch the game,this brought about  many changes, including re-launching with the Chinese version of the Tiger Knight, (with localization) as well as combining all servers into a single international server. The game also swapped from a buy to play model

Guns of Icarus Online : Keep Holding On….

Tenacity your new name is Guns of Icarus. Guns of Icarus Online is nearly 6 years old and apart from a few fluke weekends has never done well, it’s all time high is form may 2018 with over 100k ccu, it normally hangs around 100 ccu average and 4k free weekends, what causes the game to rocket to 100k+ for a few days is a mystery, the game certainly isn’t a bad one, in fact the graphics, game mechanics, and

Infestation The New Z: Micro-transactions gone nuts.

Undeath Manifest. It just Keeps coming back, and wont leave us alone, War Z one of the most hated of all Zombie Survival games gets reborn every few months/years, under a “new” dev team with startling similarity to the previous “bad” dev team they replaced, the game itself is standard indie shooter fair, ticking all the checkboxes, decent graphic for an indie, terrible sound, decent gun control, a decent selection of modes, decent character customization, its not a bad game

Tree of Life: Tree of… undeath?

Hanging on for Dear Life. Tree of Life should have been dead 2 years ago at least, the fact its still around with a small but dedicated playerbase shows the game itself at its core is rather decent, the Art style is cute, the gameplay is solid, the combat is poor, the building system has been tweaked and changed so much i have lost track of what order the changes come, but its still decently fun as of now, crafting

Tooth and Tail: RTS Genre in a Pill

The very essence of RTS in a handy Capsule. Tooth and Tail is very much what you would expect from a very streamlined RTS, you build and protect resource gathering buildings, raise armies, defend your base while attacking the enemies base, everything is very fast and matches are not meant to last very long, this in itself is nice, as many times RTS multiplayer games can be a very long time commitment. The Art style and music are very retro

Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West : Next Step being Paid to Play it?

A solid title that just never found a market. Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West is a little dated by today’s standards, but still feels like a fairly good third person shooter, and one in a niche that hasn’t been milked to death either, it deserved to do better, the maps while not amazing have some great choke points for action, the class based gameplay is reminiscent of many shooters around today that do well, the animations while

Yet Another Zombie Defense : Indie Garbage and its Fantastic

So bad it comes full circle. Yet Another Zombie Defense looks terrible, it feels like a game created in a $20 game creator software, enemies and player models have terrible animations and the one map is drab, uninspiring and frankly a grey flat square, the graphics are poor, the sound is mediocre.. the game play and mechanics are fantastic, yes i said Fantastic, it is so much fun to play, like the joy of eating a lunchable as an adult,

Laser League – Undeserved Death

Build it, and they don’t always come. Laser League has a look and feel we just don’t experience get in any other game, the game is easy to pick up, a challenge to master, has some very interesting mechanics, unlike any other game on the market today, its sadly just not able to pull in a player base large enough to support this type of game, with a average CCU of below 100, and an all-time record of under 700,
