Kerbal Space Program Review

Review; Sep. 17, 2013; Channels: Video Games; By David Telfer

Kerbal Space Program Review I've seen many space films—Armaggedon, Deep Impact, Apollo 13—and they've all taught me one thing: space travel isn't easy. Something inevitably goes wrong, whether it's during the launch, refueling at the space station, a mechanical issue with the craft, or a problem with re-entry. I've always wondered what it would be like to go to space, so after hearing about Kerbal Space Program, a space flight simulation game, I thought "Here...

Star Wars: The Old Republic Review

Review; Aug. 30, 2013; Channels: Video Games; By David Telfer

Star Wars: The Old Republic Review It's been almost two years since the release of Bioware's galactic MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic, and it's come a long way. As well as the usual patch updates bringing new content for both PvE and PvP players, the updates deliver improvements to the game as a whole. UI and character customization, new races, and the ability to change the color of your armor are just a handful of the updates Bioware has introduced. Since the launch of the...

An Elder Scrolls MMO?

News; Mar. 19, 2012; Channels: Video Games; By David Telfer

An Elder Scrolls MMO? There are many places in the world of Tamriel that gamers have explored, yet only one game -- the first in the series, The Elder Scrolls: Arena -- has actually let players explore every region. The second installment, Daggerfall, takes place in the region of High Rock. Morrowind and Skyrim, of course, take place in their own regions, and Oblivion takes place in the Imperial Province of Cyrodiil. Yet, there are many areas gamers may not have seen...

New Sim City Set For 2013 Release

News; Mar. 14, 2012; Channels: Video Games; By David Telfer

New Sim City Set For 2013 Release Whenever a new Sims game is announced, the most common response from gamers is to make a new Sim City. And that's exactly what Lucy Bradshaw, senior vice president for EA's Maxis label announced March 7 at the EA Gamechangers GDC event. To top it off, it's being developed by Maxis itself, the brains behind the original Sim City in 1989. According to reports -- and various images and trailers already appearing on the web -- this is going to be...

New Star Wars Battlefront Game Rumors Surface

News; Feb. 9, 2012; Channels: Video Games; By David Telfer

New Star Wars Battlefront Game Rumors Surface Speculation of a third Star Wars Battlefront game has been ongoing. Rumors circulated that Spark Unlimited was developing Battlefront 3 at the same time as it was rumored to be working on a Resident Evil title. Yet, all gamers had to go on were a couple of tweets suggesting the company "couldn't say either way" what it was working on. That's all changed in the last couple of days thanks to fresh evidence hinting that Spark Unlimited is indeed...

World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria is Coming

Feature; Nov. 1, 2011; Channels: Video Games; By David Telfer

World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria is Coming A few weeks ago, a good number of World of Warcraft players would never have heard of the words Pandaria or Pandaren. Now, though, you can't log on without hearing them. So what are they? Well, if you play World of Warcraft and have been living under a virtual rock for these past few days, you’ll want to head on over to the official World of Warcraft page where details of the next expansion...

Project Zomboid Tech Demo Review

Review; Aug. 28, 2011; Channels: Video Games; By David Telfer

Project Zomboid Tech Demo Review The world as we know it has come to an end. Zombies roam the land as humans struggle to survive, not only against the flesh-eating hordes but also against one another. Gangs scour the streets, breaking into houses and stealing whatever they can get their hands on using any force necessary. It’s a grim yet imaginative concept — unlike the outright unification created in other games such as Left 4 Dead, Project Zomboid presents us with...

Tetris Friends Review

Review; Aug. 28, 2011; Channels: Video Games; By David Telfer

Tetris Friends Review Tetris Friends, or How To Lose Friends By Playing Tetris Together, is, on the one hand, a harmless multiplayer reboot of the classic Tetris — a game we all know, love, and respect. Place blocks in rows to score points; fill a line with blocks and you clear that row, scoring more points. It’s a simple system, a simple game, but simply outstanding and everlasting. On the other hand — the hand clenched and ready to punch you in...

Transformice Review

Review; Aug. 5, 2011; Channels: Video Games; By David Telfer

Transformice Review I know what you’re thinking. From the title alone, you’re thinking this is a game in which you play as transforming mice. Right? You're half right. You play as mice, that’s for sure, but I don’t see the transforming bit. And neither will you. Instead, be prepared to play one of the greatest games in which trolling really is an art. The objective is simple in Transformice: get the cheese get back into the mouse hole before...

iSketch Review

Review; Jul. 29, 2011; Channels: Video Games; By David Telfer

iSketch Review In Pictionary, you draw something and the other players have to guess what it is. The more people who guess it, the more points you get, so naturally you want to draw well, all the while resisting that all-consuming desire to draw stupid, ridiculously crude pictures -- or yell out what it is you're attempting to convey in exasperation. Introducing iSketch. It's played in much the same fashion -- you set the topic, you get a word/phrase/title,...

Dwarf Fortress Review

Review; Jun. 26, 2011; Channels: Video Games; By David Telfer

Dwarf Fortress Review By the end of this review, all of my dwarves will be dead due to any number of reasons. Will they starve or die of dehydration? Will the invading beasts that roam the lands attack them? Will one dwarf go insane from a lack of alcohol and for fear of the monsters from hell that live below his feet, stalk through the fortress, and pull everyone's fingers off? Or will those monsters of hell burst from the ground, bite their arms off, and beat them...

Star Wars: The Old Republic Preview

Feature; May. 9, 2011; Channels: Video Games; By David Telfer

Star Wars: The Old Republic Preview BioWare is no stranger to making great RPGs, with an impressive catalog of games including the unmissable Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights, Jade Empire and Mass Effect – to name a handful. Few developers can boast an incredible ability to craft stories that capture the hearts of their audience and build the game play to support them, but BioWare is definitely one of them. So when one of the biggest RPG developers announced its plans...

The NGP

Feature; Apr. 26, 2011; Channels: Video Games; By David Telfer

The NGP Overall, the tradition of naming consoles is fairly straightforward. There are a few exceptions; i.e., Nintendo post-SNES – how do you go from Gamecube to Wii? It follows no set pattern. So when Sony announced the next generation of PSP, one automatically thought, “Ah! It must be the PSP2.” But, no, Sony defied all logic and went for "Next Generation Portable” instead. Catchy, right? It's as if Sony's saying to Nintendo, ...
