Critic Score
Gaming Nexus I like games where you shoot zombies. I like 2-D side-scrollers. I like tower defense games. However, I can honest say I’ve never thought about combining all of these together into one game. However, Meridian4 has done just that with their new game Deadly 30 for the PC. Let’s dive in and see how this mesh of genres works, shall we? 80/100


Lone Survivor Reviews

Based on 2 critics – Overal Score: 92 / 100

GameInfo: From Soul Brother developer Superflat Games comes a much more somber side-scroller. Lone Survivor is about just that: a guy in a surgical mask who is the only known survivor of some unspecified disease. As he tries to escape from the desolate city, he must sneak past, fight, or otherwise deal with a series of threats that he’s not even sure are real!

Critic Score
IGM Survival horror is not lacking in the game industry. Zombie games require a lot more than zombies to hold our attention today. Jasper Byrne’s Lone Survivor delivers in a dark, apocalyptic trek through an infected apartment complex with a twist. The last remaining human, known only as ‘You’, is suffering from vivid hallucinations, hunger, loneliness, insanity, and any number of unknown, mind-affecting maladies. Read Full Review 95/100
Entertainment Focus Lone Survivor is a remarkable achievement with a staggering attention to detail. The fact it’s come from a single person is incredible but this is what makes it so special. The sound, graphics, story and gameplay all work together perfectly. It’s not just a good indie game – it’s genuinely one of the best games of the year so far. For survival horror fans in particular Lone Survivor is right up there with the best of them. There’s a demo available and two options to buy ($10 or $50) – if you’ve any interest in the genre at all then you simply must buy it now. Read Full Review 90/100

IGM While Tropical Stormfront may not be a terrible game it certainly isn’t an especially good one either. The elements that seem to show true promise are ultimately overshadowed by poor controls, design and an overall mediocrity. Read Full Review 62/100

Adam’s Venture 3: Revelations Reviews and more

Based on 2 critics – Overal Score: 52 / 100

GameInfo: Vertigo Games Developer and Publisher Iceberg Interactive have announced their intention to release the third and final episode of ‘Adam’s Venture 3: Revelations’ in March 2012. In addition to further developments after Adam left for dead by thugs from the Corporation of Clairvaux, the players offered to make a digression into the past and learn how they first met Adam and Evelyn.

Critic Score
ChristCenteredGamer If you’ve played the first two Adam’s Venture games I would recommend this game to fill in some gaps in the story. The only drawback is that you’ll only get a couple of hours of gameplay with little replay value. Read Full Review 70/100
BeefJack The sinister goings on in the Revelations by the bad guys bent on world domination always feels very sanitised and threat-free, further reducing the excitement factor. It’s probably a small mercy that we are spared any Uncharted-style brawls or gunfights. The unforgiving controls barely get Adam through a door, let alone a frantic shoot-out.

Yesterday Reviews and more

Based on 5 critics – Overal Score: 84 / 100

GameInfo: In New York City, beggars are disappearing one after another, only to be found burnt alive. Meanwhile, a Y-shaped scar forms in the palm of the hands of seemingly unrelated people. With the police and the media giving little attention to these events, Henry White, a young and rich heir dedicated to a charitable organization, and his friend Cooper, are the first to investigate these disappearances. They are two of the three playable characters in Yesterday, the third being none other than the enigmatic John Yesterday, who is dragged into this incredible story after his memory is completely wiped.

This is the starting point of Yesterday is an original and dark thriller by Pendulo Studios, creators of the Runaway trilogy and The Next Big Thing. Yesterday will drive you into a dark story full of twists and turning points, and give you the chance to choose between 4 different endings! Choose who you want to control: Henry, Cooper or John in the game’s grand finale and leave the closing at your will! Do you want justice to win? Would you prefer a crooked ending? Or rather an unexpected, jaw-dropping one?

Critic Score
Hooked Gamers The studio that helped bring the point-and-click adventure back into the spotlight with the Runaway trilogy is ready to bring us another tale. However, instead of the comedy that Pendulo Studios has become known for, we’re getting Yesterday: a dark thriller fraught with plot twists, ruminations of death and greed, ancient cults, alchemy, and psychopaths. And, of course, a slight touch of humor. What would a Pendulo game be without at least a little comic relief? Read Full Review 92/100
Dualshockers Emily Putscher of Dualshockers.come writes “I don’t know how to start this review, and to be perfectly frank I’m still not exactly sure how I feel about this game. All I can say is that is was a hell of an experience, and while Yesterday is very much not the type of game I would normally chose to play, I’m mostly glad I did. Mostly. Check back with me in a few days when I’ve calmed down enough to get a good night’s sleep. Read Full Review 85/100
Anime Courtyard Recently we had the pleasure to try a YESTERDAY preview build, now having played a full release, we are completely delighted and no need to say that we enjoyed it from start to finish.
As we previously mentioned in our previous article it’s good to see a classic genre that refuses to die in a market flooded with (sometimes) mediocre and monotone FPS’s. What does Pendulo and Focus Home Interactive have in store for you? Let’s find out! Read Full Review

Total War: Shogun 2 – Fall of the Samurai Reviews and more

Based on 2 critics – Overal Score: 91 / 100

GameInfo: In 2000, the Creative Assembly re-invented the strategy genre with Shogun: Total War, an unprecedented blend of 3D real-time battles and turn-based management game and the first offering in the multi-award winning series. With over 7 million units sold and universal acclaim from the press and community, Total War has consistently been at the cutting edge of the genre and is today one of the most successful PC franchises of all time.

In 2011, the makers of Rome and Empire: Total War will release the sequel to the game that started it all. Shogun 2: Total War will take long-time veterans and newcomers alike to the next level of strategy gaming on PC. Based on 10 years of experience in making Total War, Shogun 2 is the perfection of the series with a new Artificial Intelligence (AI), revolutionary multiplayer modes, brand new campaign map options and epic 3D real-time battles.

It is the middle of the 16th century in Medieval Japan. The country, once ruled by a unified government, is now split into many warring clans. The player takes on the role of one Daimyo – the clan leader – and will use military engagements, economics and diplomacy to achieve the ultimate goal: re-unite Japan under his supreme command and become the new Shogun – the undisputed ruler of Japan.

Set during the golden age of Samurai warfare, Shogun 2 brings to life the most turbulent period of Japanese history.

Critic Score
Hooked Gamers Japan has had a turbulent history, with civil wars, scrambles for power and fragmented relations between factions dominating much of its existence. But by far the most turbulent time to live in Japan was in the mid-to-late 19th century, during the Bakumatsu era of the Edo period. It’s this backdrop of the influence of western powers, civil war and the end of the shogunate that Total War: Shogun 2 – Fall of the Samurai focuses on. Read Full Review 92/100
MasonicGamer In a land, with it’s civilization spanning back thousands of years, dictated by the honour and strength of both it’s people and it’s warriors in peace and war, how does one combat something so devastating and final as a firearm? In Shogun 2′s latest expansion Fall of the Samurai, you’ll soon find that the way of the Samurai quickly crumbles when guns get involved… Read Full Review 90/100

Jane’s Advanced Strike Fighters Reviews and more

Based on 1 critics – Overal Score: 50 / 100

The plot puts the player in the Middle East, in a fictional country Azbaristan. It has been ten years a bloody civil war. Most of the country occupied by the Northern Peoples Republic.

Janes Advanced Strike Fighters are more than thirty models of real fighters. Multiplayer mode that allows you to meet online to 16 participants simultaneously, and compare – which of these models is the battle. In addition, the game mode was implemented cooperative transmission – from 2 to 4 people.

Critic Score
STN The PC is usually the place to go to get an flight simulator fix, with its many keys available to represent every dial and switch from a real cockpit. The games that usually filter through to the console market tend to have an arcade-like feel and execution, what with H.A.W.X and Ace Combat blazing the skies or alterations of classic PC games like IL2 Sturmovik. Well we now have another action packed flight simulator appearing on home consoles in JASF: Jane’s Advanced Strike Fighters, but should we care? 50/100

The Sims 3 Showtime Reviews

Based on 3 critics – Overal Score: 68 / 100

GameInfo: The Sims 3 Showtime allows players to connect and share with their friends and fellow fans of The Sims without ever leaving the game. Players will venture into a new world and live the dream as singers, acrobats, magicians and DJs. Using the all-new SimPort feature, players can send their Sim into a friend’s game to perform in their world, book gigs in their friends’ town, go on tour, and be reviewed. Along the way, players can earn rewards for achieving goals and accomplishing special challenges that can be tracked and shared via in-game social wall posts. Players have the opportunity to post their Sims’ successes, share gameplay techniques, create wishlists and send gifts, search for new friends and share memories through their in-game news feeds and as e-cards.

Critic Score
Gamezone On the surface, The Sims 3: Showtime adds some nice features to the game. The new professions and interactive community features are nice additions, but in no way is The Sims 3: Showtime a must have. While the professions are fun, they aren’t anything we haven’t had similar experiences with other professions. It’s a nice change to dream big with Showtime, but unless you are really into show business or willing to fully utilize the SimPort feature, you’ll probably find little use in this expansion pack. Read Full Review 75/100
CGM It’s getting to the point where it’s difficult to say anything about a Sims expansion because the audience for this franchise is so well defined that everyone has their minds made up. The fans are going to go out and buy the new content regardless, and the skeptical will continue to remain just that. Read Full Review 70/100
Guardian The latest Sims 3 add-on, like the others, has been carefully crafted to find new ways to micromanage your time and befuddle your senses. The basic virtual dollhouse formula is unchanged but Showtime adds a new hood, new bling and a supposedly new incentive to play – namely, discovering your inner diva. Read Full Review 60/100
