How Much Do I OUYA?
Review

By Jorge Figueiredo - August 13th, 2014

If you were one of the folks who jumped on the OUYA train, this particular post will be of interest to you. Extend Studio has released a clever little platformer for the cubed wonder called So Many Me. The cute art style and the cartoon-like dialogue hide a challenging and addictive puzzling mechanic that is sure to please even the most discerning players of this genre.

Football Manager 2015 Announced

By Rituro - August 11th, 2014

Finally, at long last, Sports Interactive has graced the world with precious, precious dates regarding Football Manager 2015. Now, I know that might seem like a bit of an overstatement considering that a yearly FM game is about as guaranteed as the yearly iterations of Madden, FIFA or Call of Duty. We know a new game is coming, people might say, so what all the hype? To those people, I say, “Shut your pie holes, you insolent whelps! They’re talking about Football Manager!”

Fashionably Late Reviews
Tropico 5

By Rituro - August 9th, 2014


Click here to play the video review of Tropico 5.

Sunshine, lush tropical forests, a gleaming presidential palace, acres of slummy shacks and tenements interspersed with banana and tobacco plantations…is there anything quite like life as a Caribbean dictator? Probably not, which is a very good thing. Also a very good thing? Haemimont’s third kick at the Tropico can, Tropico 5. Check out my video review to see what I liked and didn’t like in the latest edition.


First Impressions
Hand of Fate
Early Access

Being invited to play games that are still in development is truly am honour, as it not only allows a sneak peek at what is to come, but also allows you to help the developer tweak certain things by providing valuable feedback. When Defiant Development invited us to try out their new game, Hand of Fate, on Steam Early Access, I wasn’t sure what to expect. However, after spending some time with it, I was a bit disappointed; not because the game was a bad experience – but because it’s not finished yet and I really want to keep playing!

Anticipation
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution

The Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm series is (in my humble opinion) one of the best fighting games that you can play. It’s a pretty lofty claim, especially in the face of such greats like the Street Fighter series and the Mortal Kombat franchise (to name a few) – but the fine folks at CyberConnect2 continue to push the boundaries in terms of depth and fun, making for a better experience with each game (which is amazing, considering that the first game in the series is still really enjoyable to play). The next title in the series, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution, promises to be the best chapter yet, and includes even more playable characters and cool features than any previous version.

First Impressions
Tropico 5
Multi-player

By Rituro - August 2nd, 2014


Click here to check out the interview.

Change has come to the lush islands of Tropico. No longer do you oppress the peasantry, court world leaders and fund space programs in solitude – now you can put your dictator credentials to the test against other Presidentes in a full multi-player mode. This is not the challenge creator/leaderboards of earlier incarnations; this is you and up to three friends/enemies duking it out for glory, honour and a bloated Swiss bank account. Check out the video for my first impressions of Tropico 5 multi-player!

DG2: Defense Grid 2

By Jorge Figueiredo - August 1st, 2014

I love me some tower defense. When my friend Chris introduced me to the genre, I was immediately hooked! One of my all-time favourite tower defense games was (and still is) Defense Grid: The Awakening by Hidden Path Entertainment. The game-play and the production value were both incredible. Well, based on my impressions of Hidden Path’s latest game in the works, DG2: Defense Grid 2 (Beta), I think they might have another winner on their hands for the PC.
