PC Game Releases – November 2015

Raging Justice – PC, Xbox One, Mac and Mobile

A nostalgic side-scrolling beat-em-up of the sort that filled the arcades of old, albeit with HD graphics and ear-splitting HD audio.
The visuals are 2D and pre-rendered but they
look great in HD thanks to the use of modern
graphics techniques.

From Streets Of Rage to Raging Justice, it may seem that the sidescrolling brawler hasn’t changed much over the past 24 years. Here we have a three-level demo packed with thugs that can be dispatched in numerous ways thanks to a wide range of combos, items dotted around that can be picked up and used, and some fiendish end-of-level bosses. Deja vu, anyone?

But there is no shame in harking back to the Eighties and early Nineties as long as you bring something new to the table and that’s what Raging Justice does. It may pay a nostalgic, cheesy homage to the genre with its ‘continues’ and maverick cops called Rick Justice and Nikki Rage, but it also seeks to move the brawler into the 21st century.

Developer Nic Makin tells us that beat-emups have been “sorely in need of updating” and you can see the steps being made to improve them. There is a modern soundtrack made for surround sound systems composed by Steve Burke and high-definition 2D visuals by artist Jay Howse, which deliberately provoke fuzzy feelings for the pre-rendered look used in games such as Donkey Kong Country and Killer Instinct.

On top of that, the controls correct past ‘wrongs’: there are four buttons rather than the traditional two, with one set aside for picking up weapons and another dedicated to jumping. As you bash the enemy into submission, you can make a choice: carry on hitting them in order to knock them out or just arrest them. Your decision will indicate if you are a good or bad cop. Genius. There is also a greater sense of maturity in the gameplay. The enemy AI has various patterns and strategies that you have to learn to defeat and the characters develop as you play the game, with bosses mixing things up. “We are introducing new gameplay as you play through – riding the Tractor on the Junkyard level has been a highlight of the shows,” says Makin. It also helps that you can simply pick up and play the game. It’s so accessible that there is no tutorial section; to insert one would be to patronise gamers of a certain era, we feel. “Every part of the game is designed for the sake of enjoyment, from how the player fights to the enemy AI, to the weapons and the vehicles,” says Makin.

He also says there are some features which will not be included from launch. Online multiplayer, alternate game modes such as a Bar Brawl (where players must survive wave after wave of enemies) and new playable characters are planned to come later. As it stands, though, it’s beating a strong path to our hearts.

Although you can pick up weapons and
wallop the enemy thugs, as a cop you can arrest the
criminals instead of smashing them.

Fallout 4 – Best Sidequests and Best Weapons

Essential Sidequests 

Make sure you search every school you find. One has a secret vault underneath, the pretence being it was to save the children and their parents (if they could afford it). The truth is far more horrifying, even for this series, and that’s really saying something.

It’s not all doom and gloom in the wasteland, as this charming adventure proves. Salvage a beer-brewing robot, while wondering if Bethesda come up with the pun first, then write the quest after. We’re not judging. That’s how 90% of OXM is brewed.

Stop impressionable youngster Jake from joining sinister Raider gang The Forged. Seriously, these guys are truly evil. Feeding-people-eyes-forsleeping- on-their-shift kind of evil.

Rescue Erin’s cat. Look, you’re going to commit some truly horrible sins in the wasteland. The least you can do is return this lost kitty. Think of your soul.

Great Weapons

At last! A weapon that fires all those useless rusty tin cans we’re always accidentally picking up.
Will launch any junk loaded into it and the longer you hold down the trigger, the more powerful the impact. Means it’s now possible to defeat a shotgun wielding raider with a pair of safety scissors.

Craft poisons at chemistry benches, then fire them into your enemies. Highlights include one that makes them bleed out for an agonising 30 seconds, or a shot that makes them think you’ve vanished into thin air. You know, just like people do all the time. Idiots.

Radiation poisoning means it’s no longer
safe to drink seawater. Shame, we used to love
doing that.

Bring a big knife to a gunfight and the Super Mutants will rightfully giggle as they minigun you to
shreds. Burn off their laughing gobs by crafting an electrified blade – it’s the closest you’ll get to wielding a lightsaber outside of Battlefront.

When stabbing just isn’t enough, go

Does disintegrating an enemy into red, steaming particles ever get old? No. No it does not.

Scourge of War: Waterloo – PC Reviews & Gameplay Images

Reviews & Images Screenshots & Specs Similar Games Trailer

Rating: 80/100

Rating: 75/100                                      

This game is not like Napoleon Total War especially concerning graphics. But it is a much deeper wargaming experience in its detail, scale and historical simulation. I enliken Scourge of War Waterloo with NTW in the same way I do with IL2 Sturmovik 1942 in regards to War Thunder.

SoWW is deeply satisfying to play if you enjoy the grand scheme of Napoleonic line battles. It can be adapted from casual to hardcore gamestyles — HITS, Headquarters in the Saddle, being a unique feature. Be prepared to invest time in learning the game controls as this will repay you in greater satisfaction.

Now go and try your hand as Napoleon, Wellington or Blucher (or a score of other historical commanders)!

Rating: 85/100                                                                 
If you enjoy strategy wargaming you need this in your collection, it’s as simple as that.

A game that strives for realism and historical accuracy, it may not be the prettiest, although it has a beauty all its own, it succeeds at simulating the experience of commanding troops on the battlefield.

A masterpiece.

Top 3 Indie Titles for PC


Ashen Rift is just the thing for people who like both survival games and dogs. It promises a deep and emotional experience, as you traverse an expansive and constantly changing wasteland with a canine companion. The game is clearly focusing more on its journey rather than the destination, having you testing your survival skills, while providing a different experience each time you play with its constantly shifting environment. Not to be confused with A Boy and His Dog.

Obviously there are many people out there who are big fans of Die Hard, including the people developing Turnover. Players take the role of an office drone, Clea, who must escape the armed guards attempting to take over the building, like an 8-Bit John McLane. The game itself seems to promise a lot of tense moments and close calls, reactive enemy AI will ensure you never quite know what’s coming next.

Every so often there is a game that takes two things that have been done before and blends them together to make something new. That’s exactly what you get in this experience as it combines the chaos of beat-em-ups with the strategy normally found in MOBAs thanks to a card based skill and equipment system. This mixture will have people staying on their toes as they find the best ways not to die.

If you want Legend of Grimrock, but with better combat (much more tactical) and less annoying puzzles, this is the game for you.

Rating: 70/100                                 
It’s a pretty solid dungeon crawler, and it’s well thought out to capture a large audience. Beginners in the genre, such as myself, will find an extensive tutorial and pick a easy level of difficulty, allowing them to get going without frustration, while seasoned players can skip the tutorial and choose a much harder level (there are 6 level of difficulty if I remember correctly).

Of course you’ll find most of the genre’s commonplaces right there as you expect them – from the visual style to the types of objects, the gameplay mechanics, etc. This has caused some people to blame the lack of originality, but at the same time, had the game departed too much from these standards, people would have complained about it (or simply been turned away) as well. So I think the developer made the right choices.

All in all, a solid recommendation if you’re attracted to dungeon crawlers, whether or not you’re skillful at them.

Rating: 80/100                                                        
Very nice combat focussed dungeon crawler. Nothing flashy, but very well made. The combat mechanics are especially good – deep, yet easy to learn. Navigating through the levels can take a bit of perseverance, but the puzzles are much less pesky than Grimrock. Would have been awesome with voice acting, but still strongly recommended if you like the old school.

Rating: 90/100                                                                          
Just Fantastic!

Great game that takes me back to my ‘Eye Of The Beholder’ days. Quite challenging even with the pause option.

Lovely environments and great ambient sound.

Only con for me are items and some pressure pads are very hard to see. Developer has since added sparkle to dropped items, but it wasn’t these items as such, it was items already on the ground hidden in corners I have trouble seeing. But that’s half the fun right? Why have everything handed to you on a plate? I’m 6 hours in and only on Level 2. I can see this lasting me quite some time. Money well spent and kudos to the developer.

– nice atmosphere
– stylish graphics
– strategic gameplay with lots of options
– true to the board game’s spirit
– nice developers who publish lots of updates

– long loading times
– camera bugs
– UI is a bit confusing and clunky
– bad animations, mediocre visual effects

Rating: 75/100                                          
I bought relatively early into Early Access, And I was super disappointed – the game was sluggish, unbalanced, boring and the multiplayer battles without consequences.

And then I started again with the last patch, after taking half a year off.

Boy did this get far. Mordheim is brilliant now. It’s still a bit sluggish, a bit slow with the loading, but it’s so, so, so much fun. While there’s only four warbands, there’s plenty of opportunity with different weapon styles and skillings to build your own unique troop. And every battle counts, every engagement could end badly for you.

The AI isn’t very good, but it gets lucky every now and then and manages to outflank you, so there’s still a considerable risk. Mordheim teaches humility – like when your Matriarch tank loses her shield arm and can’t enter Parry stance anymore, rendering her completely useless as a tank. And replacing her from the scratch will take a lot of time and training you might not have, as your commander expects a large delivery of warpstone soon!

My initial disappointment is completely gone, and I’ll be the first in line when new DLC featuring more warbands hits the store. It’s so good, and so exciting.

Rating: 80/100                                                                     
First up, this is not Table Top Mordheim. It looks like it, it feels like it, but it is an adaption of the table-top game, not a direct port. So if you want Mordheim as you remember it, this is not it. But it is still an amazing game.

It captures the look and feel of TT Mordheim very well. The characters look like they jumped right off your miniature shelf and into your monitor. The world feels exactly like Mordheim should…dark, scary and evil. It is very close to Warhammer lore, and if you want a Warhammer Fantasy fix this is surely your best bet today. No Age of Shitmar junk here! Just traditional Warhammer goodness!

-The maps are truly amazing and detailed. There is nothing else like it. Multiple stories in buildings, raised walkways and terrain, traps and dead ends. Ruined buildings and plenty of flanking and high ground opportunities abound. It blows away anything else in the market and needs to be seen to be believed. All maps also are different every time you play them due to procedural terrain generation. Never the same experience twice.
-The graphics are well done, the animations are varied and many, and as said above they really captured the feel of Warhammer in it’s entirety.
-The development options are immense. 175 total skills and 8 unique spells per faction. 7 different characters for 4 warbands. So many ways to build your characters to fit your playstyle.
-‘Hardcode’ gameplay. You cannot save and reload (although you can save/quit and continue again at any time) or as it’s known, save-scumming. Characters can get injuries and die. You live with consequences.
-Huge array of maps for multiplayer, with many options.
-Seamless integreation of Single Player and Multiplayer. They are basially one and the same.
-Unique campaign for each faction and a large single player experience.

-The wealth of options can be overwhelming to new players. If this doesn’t bother you, you’ll love it.
-The lack of dedicated MP support. Since the publisher didn’t cough up the cash for dedicated servers, the community will need to start their own leagues. But nothing stops you from doing MP-only with friends. You will need an ‘honor’ system (and screenshots) to enforce MP only.
-Hardcore gameplay can be a turn off. If you can’t handle setbacks, you won’t like this game.
-AI still needs work. It can be challenging at first, but after a while it is fairly beatable. Of course, that’s where MP comes in. Note the developers are still working on the AI.
-“Only” 4 warbands. If you want a lot of options they aren’t here yet. That said, the four warbands offer immense options anyway. But if your a TT purist, or really want Undead or Dwarves, they aren’t here yet.
-The complex maps can sometimes cause issues with AI pathfinding, and you may not get why you cannot disengage from combat because some rock or skeleton is blocking your way.

It has to be said the development team, Rogue Factor, has been truly amazing throughout the early acces in terms of accessibility, communication, and feedback. A number of suggestion I myself have made are in the game…they really listen to the community, beyond any other developer I’ve ever seen. They will continue to refine the game even after release, and if sales justifiy, it, they will add more Warbands and functionality.

In the end, I found this to be an incredible game, well worth the $40 US. If you like warhammer, and deep turn based strategy, and want fully 3D maps that blow anything in the market away (XCOM has nothing on these maps) then this is the game for you.

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen

One of the most enjoyable third-person action RPGs of 2012 is about to make its way to the PC, bringing the Dark Arisen expansion pack with it. Utilising an interesting hybridised class system and clever online support that allows your NPC companion to join other parties when you’re offline, DD should be a hit on PC.
