The Golf Club

By Jorge Figueiredo - August 29th, 2014

The game of golf is interesting to me. Whether watching or playing, it is a game that involves patience and skill, with repeated practice resulting in great muscle control and the ability to do some very interesting (subconscious) physics calculations. Translating golf to a console in such a way as to keep the game entertaining (without sacrificing the sense of accomplishment that comes with a great round) is probably not the easiest of tasks, but HB Studios has done a really great job of doing so in their latest game: The Golf Club.

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

fm2015-ann

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!”

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

By Jorge Figueiredo - August 7th, 2014

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

By Jorge Figueiredo - August 4th, 2014

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.
