SW:TOR, Knights of the Fallen Empire, Chapter I The Hunt

Now that the Knights of the Fallen Empire has released for all subscribers and enough time has passed that I don’t feel bad about talking spoilers, we’re going to do exactly that! As I explained in yesterday’s prologue, I’ll be recounting the journey of Ravanor, my original character, in a somewhat dramatic, screenshot-heavy form.

SW:TOR, Knights of the Fallen Empire, Prologue

The release of Knights of the Fallen Empire expansion of Star Wars: The Old Republic ensures I’m afraid a continuation of our Star Wars coverage – it’ll probably bring this site to ruin, but damn it’s fun to write about. My plan is to write something about each of the expansion’s chapters, nine of which have been released, with more coming as episodic releases in the future. In short, I’ll chronicle the journey of Ravanor, my original character, created during the vanilla game’s early access period almost four years ago. There will be spoilers; in fact it will all be spoilers, of both the old content, including the class stories, as well as the new chapters, but hopefully it will make for an interesting read. If nothing else, it’s my latest experiment and who doesn’t love experiments?

Review – Assassin’s Creed Syndicate

You really never know what you’re getting when it comes to the Assassin’s Creed series; a Black Flag or Brotherhood, or a Revelations or 3, of course I’ve reserved Unity a category all of its own, though I don’t suspect Ubisoft will allow a game in that state to slip onto shelves again anytime soon. It has got to be an up year surely?

This Week In Videogames – 25/10/2015

It’s another week and a reasonable big one as far as game launches go, but not so much news front. Still I managed to scrounge up some real bangers, take a look!


Dropcast 30 - Vandenberghe

Matthew and Kyle are back for another Dropcast after a month's absence due to their lives being consumed by Metal Gear. In this episode they talk about Metal Gear Online, Star Wars and everyone favourite Assassins Creed.

Dropping In – Dungeon Manager ZV

Kyle hastily tries to explain to Matthew the myriad features that Dungeon Manager ZV boasts that Microsoft Excel doesn’t, pixels isn’t one of them! Dungeon Manager is a Japanese “megahit” now available for the first time in English.

Mod Watch – Star Wars: Empire At War: FoC, Legacy Era

We reach the furthest point along the now renounced Star Wars canon as we delve into the Legacy Era; a time when new Star Destroyers look more archaic than their ancient predecessors, and the Jedi have been erased once more. It’s a good time to be Imperial again.

This Week In Videogames – 18/10/2015

Keep all children and pets securely locked in doors and remember to turn off all your electronics at the sockets, because videogames are coming! I feel like I may have stated something similar back when Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain launched last month… But I mean it for real this time, the coming weeks see the releases of Halo 5, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, and (most importantly, obviously) Knights of the Fallen Empire! Still we're getting ahead of ourselves, let’s stay grounded and recount the last week of videogames.

Mod Watch – Star Wars: Empire At War: FoC, Galactic Civil War Era

This is it, the catalyst. It all began here. This is the mod that sparked my recent Star Wars obsession, which even months removed from its discovery continues to fan my self-destructive flames. This is Thrawn’s Revenge: Imperial Civil War, the mod that demanded far more of my time than any other game released this year.

Metal Gear Online: Who needs Tactical Espionage when you have a Walker Gear

Metal Gear Online 3 is a beautiful amalgamation of the core system that made Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain so great, and the ability to play the game with other people and friends, as everyone has their own play style for you to adapt to accordingly.

Mod Watch – Star Wars: Empire At War: FoC, Clones Wars Era

We continue our coverage of the Star Wars: Empire at War, Forces of Corruption mod scene. Jumping forward some three and a half thousand years to the Clone Wars era, we take a look at one mod in particular.

This Week In Videogames – 11/10/2015

It is your Destiny to catch up with this week’s curated news! Sadly, tragically even, there are no Kawaii hotdogs or ripped dudes sporting nothing but their skimpiest undies this time around. Instead we have plenty of disease, rotting and foetid!

Mod Watch – Star Wars: Empire At War: FoC, Old Republic Era

Mods, of a game from a time when the Steam Workshop simply wasn’t around, in this feature we explore mods in varying stages of completion and of equally varying quality. Starting with my hot picks from Star Wars: Empire at War: Forces of Corruption, a title with a surprisingly strong community considering it was forgotten years ago by the wider gaming audience.

Dropping In – Mad Max

Matthew and Kyle prowl the wasteland for fuel, scrap, and hot air balloons? Finding all with surprisingly little difficultly in Mad Max, on the PlayStation 4.

Dropping In – EPSILON

Kyle shows Matthew how not to diffuse a hostage situation in EPSILON, a somewhat stealthy, slightly sci-fi tactical shooter currently available in Early Access on Steam. Remember glow sticks are not for spamming.

This Week In Videogames – 04/10/2015

It’s a new week, with new happenings in the wonderful world of videogames, here’s your regularly scheduled selection of stories that made it through the filter of me! It’s a pretty dirty filter… filthy even.

Dropping In – Destiny The Taken King, Shield Brothers

The guys check out the Strike Shield Brothers, which features not one new asset, but THREE! That’s right three new assets hot of the cutting room floor; two Cabal bond brother dudes and a sweet Hive Dreadnaught core, all entirely original! It’s more Destiny The Taken King of course.

Dropping In - Rainbow Six: Siege Closed Beta, Terrorist Hunt

You know what’s not hot with the kids today? Syllables. Who has the time! Kyle and Matthew down unresponsive tangos in Terrohunt/Terrorist Hunt/whatever its now called, in the Rainbow Six: Siege Close Beta, on the Xbox One. Apologies in advance for that abhorrent attempt at a French accent!
