Outlaws of the old East (West).

Same old Story “China #1” Outlaws of the Old West was showing great promise, its userbase was growing by the day, and reviews while only mixed were leaning towards a positive overall tone, and then… the Chinese came, now don’t get me wrong this is nothing about race, i know many Chinese Americans, Chinese from Europe, parts of Asia etc who would never cheat, but it’s not racism to see what is right in front of you, opening up a

Pantropy : Déjà vu

While reading this review the astute among you will recognize its almost a cut and paste of my Heat review, and for good reason, both games suffer the same flaws and oddly released within 24 hours of each other! —————– Doomed to Die? Pantropy is not a bad game and if you buy it and find a good community server you will have fun, that being said i would avoid the official servers for now as these games become a

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

Atlas : Highs Seas or Low Expectations?

A lot of Promise, a Long way yet to go. We will get into the controversy later, for right now lets look at the game itself, with a sailing system which while not surpassing, does rival Sea of Thieves, a taming system that i feel while different is better than Ark Survival’s and a building system that is close to equaling the majestic system of Conan Exiles. Atlas pushes a lot of right buttons  and a few wrong ones along

Citadel: Forged with Fire : So much wrong yet So much right.

To late to the party? Sadly this much is true, by the time Citadel is even close to ready the  market will be controlled even more by the current leaders, while the game offers some creative features such as the spell system and a more in depth crafting system than many games, overall its the second cousin to better games and will never be a huge success. The world building is exquisite.. The map is stylized to the setting and

Fear the Night : Hopeful about this one.

SNAIL GAMES IS EBIL!1!! Yes Snail games the greatest evil since Emperor Palpatine because… no one is sure but normally it includes Reddit REEee about they are making money (that’s what a successful business does, making money = more development = more games for us) or for releasing a game into early (alpha) access that is.. of alpha quality.. shocking i know.. when will devs learn and start releasing finished/bug free games into a program that allows early access to

Stranded Deep: Yeah Exactly that…

Its Deep. Stranded Deep is an open world survival game like so many others, however what sets it apart is the depth of crafting and survival aspects, picking up coconuts isn’t a simple slot and snack ordeal, from climbing trees to cutting it open, there are a few more steps involved with everything you do. Crafting also shares this philosophy with multiple stages being required to produce most items, this adds a deeper level of immersion which for a game

A very solid game but we need to enjoy the journey.

Will to Live Online: Russian EA Failure v2?

Russian EA Failure v2? Slightly click bait title but for a valid point, not all Eastern Europeans are Russians, just like all Western developers are not American, that being said there have been Many Early access games from Eastern Europe which have frankly been scams, Will to Live however is not one of them, the developers while not perfect have tried to apply community feedback whenever possible and while the CCU is tiny its a solid game, a lot of

Life is Feudal: MMO vs Your Own

Two games, basically the Same. Life is Feudal games are basically the same, craft, shape the world, fight players, creatures, build things, look like a disease ridden peasant, get stuck in the landscape when you dig too deep, fall off cliffs, get stuck in landscape when you dig too deep, feel epic and powerful till you have your butt handed to you by a feral rodent.. get stuck in.. wait have i mentioned getting stuck in landscape yet? Overall the

Out of Reach or Out of Touch?

Unity engine.. we know where this is going.. Rust did well on the unity engine because it was the first true survival game on steam, that and the mechanics implemented by developers were of a high quality, Unity as an engine sucks and honestly it always come off looking as cheap unless in expect hands, and while the devs can try to dress up this pig, unity is a pig in a black dress, kinda sexy if you squint but

Miscreated: A Surprisingly Good Creation.

Do not Cry, for it is Cry engine. CryEngine is a fantastic engine for open world games and Miscreated utilizes it to a great degree, while the map design is admittedly rather dull, it’s very much a standard landscape from our world, as the game is one of grounded realities, it makes sense the map does not have the more interesting and fantastical locales found in games like Day Z and 7 Days to Die. Graphics while not astonishing are
