I looked forward to this game. It had a good deal for pre-order (you get the original game) and the price was not too terrible either. Unfortunately, I am yet to play the original game, although it has been downloaded on my computer. When I start the game, the first menu that appears is the one for “create online profile”. That doesn’t sound too bad but that is the only screen you will ever see because the only other option is to quit the game. So, needless to say, I feel cheated because of that. I contacted Steam and numerous forums but to no avail.
Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 is an average game at best. There are no innovations that will blow your mind. Bullet camera is a standard by now so I can’t give them a plus on that addition. I also don’t think bullet ballistics makes this game unique because that has been around for a while. In comparison, for example, Sniper Elite and BF3 do a better job in terms of providing a more realistic sniping experience. Voice acting in English is average, almost cliche. Voice acting in Bosnian, however, is absolutely dreadful. I know because I am actually a native Bosnian speaker. Fact that you can’t pick up your foe’s gear is beyond one’s comprehension. My biggest woe with this game is the multiplayer. I don’t know what to say on it becasue it is not possible to connect and play. I tried on numerous occasions with no success. There are only a few servers available. In brief, I do not recommend this game for a full retail price. Save your money, wait until they make the multiplayer actualy playable and then give it a go. My apologies if this review seemed a bit general. I tried to avoid any specific “in-game” observations that would spoil the experience for those of you considering playing this game. Good luck and game on!!!

For a while now Eugen Systems has been developing a sequel to Wargame: European Escalation. A sequel that brings air combat prominently and significantly into the game while making a myriad of changes to singleplayer, multiplayer and AI. It is called Wargame: Airland Battle and today they started a multiplayer focused pre-order beta that doesn’t give players any new modes to play with, but it does give players a chance to experience aerial combat.
Eugen Systems announced the pre-order beta in a news post, but they didn’t mention that Steam has suddenly placed a release date of May 22nd for the game. It will cost $40, the same as the original game, but those who own the European Escalation can get the game for 20% off.
Good news for Just Cause 2 fans who could not attend to this weekend’s open beta test for the game’s upcoming Multiplayer mode, as this test has been extended for the whole week. Yeap, you read that right; you can go ahead, grab the beta client from the mod’s official website and start playing. We strongly suggest doing so as there is no release date yet for this mod, and we might not get it anytime soon. Therefore, enjoy it while you still can.
League of Legends is about to get a host of new skins dedicated to one of your favorite professional teams, the Taipei Assassins.
If you were living under a rock in season 2, you wouldn’t have know that the Taipei Assassins secured their place in both fans hearts and League of Legends history by claiming victory on the Fields of Justice when faced with Azubu.
James Bryant has informed us about the release of his retro strategy game, Machines at War 3. Machines at War 3 is the rare indie game that offers a full single-player campaign to compliment its multiplayer and random map modes. From the looks of it, Machines at War 3 is similar to Red Alert and Total Annihilation, which is a good thing in our books.
As more games begin to play with light we are starting to see some rather interesting new immersive atmospheres developed as a result. Toward The Light is a first person adventure game in which you are stuck in a cave and must find the way out, although you only have your trusty flare gun to help guide you in this pitch black environment.
The critically-accalimed Dark Souls, which has now sold over two million copies, will be meeting its younger brother early next year. The series’ second iteration looks to build on the success of both Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls. With the game making apperances at big events like the Video Game Awards and this year’s upcoming Electronic Entertainment Expo, it’s easy to say that this could be the biggest iteration the franchise has seen yet.
Ubisoft is one of the biggest publishers in the gaming industry, and it looks like they are upping their ante for the digital market with three upcoming titles.
The first game is going to be the already revealed, “Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon,” which allows gamers to play the always entertaining rolls of winning over the girl, killing all of the bad guys and saving the Earth. What more could you want?
