Thief: Out of the Shadows Officially Unveiled

Square Enix have today officially unveiled the next Thief game. Subtitled Out of the Shadows, the new entry in the successful cult franchise will be released on PC, PS4 and “other next-gen consoles.” Aside from the trailer, very little was revealed about the game. It’s set in a city in which the poor are desperately waiting for something to change, and it allows the player to approach any given situation in a number of ways.  Of course, it looks fantastic…

Defiance Review

There have been a number of attempts to bring the MMO to consoles and they have, by and large, been unsuccessful. Instead of building a game to play with a controller in front of the TV from scratch, developers instead adapt a game built around dozens of keyboard keys and a mouse. They're often surprised when that doesn't work. Defiance is a game that brings together the spirit of third person multiplayer gaming and the massive, persistent world of the MMO, and it does it so successfully you might begin to question why it wasn't possible before. This feels ...

Of all the nonsense we'll see today, this is probably going to be the most annoying. Valve have placed an entry for Half-Life 4 into the Steam registry. After so many years of teasing for Half-Life 3, I'm sure there are more than a few fans who will find this a little close to the bone.

Masters of the World Review

If you’ve ever looked through the papers, hoping to find a shred of explanation as to why politicians act the way they do, knowing full well that you could do a far better job, Masters of the World is for you. It’s the third in Eversim’s geo-political simulator series, and while other games task you with ruling the world or coming to an uneasy peace with every other nation, in Masters of the World you’ll make difficult decisions, work to jumpstart the economy and still struggle to get into the people’s good books. Forget Civilisation; if you truly want to ...

Trials Evolution Gold Edition Review

Trials HD was perhaps one of the most difficult games of this generation. Getting through the later levels took such a degree of timing, so much muscle memory and a healthy dose of luck. For Evolution, Red Lynx pushed everything one step further, creating a game where the stunts were more deadly, the feats more impressive and the locations more interesting. Now the franchise is finally returning to PC, and to reward the long wait the developers have decided to pack in both Trials HD and Evolution. That seems like a lot of value, but remember that this ...

Strategy-Hungry Gamers Pledge $40,000 to Kickstarter in 24 Hours

The turn-based strategy genre used to be a big hitter on PC and even managed to leak onto consoles occasionally. That was a long time ago though, and if you want something similar today you’ll need to be content with going with something a little older or something that’s not exactly what you want. Maybe that’s why KING Art Games are making Battle Worlds: Kronos, and why 1000 gamers hungry for a return of their favourite genre have given almost…
