Dropping In - Star Wars: Battlefront, Cargo

Whoop! Whoop! That’s the sound of da police! And in this case ‘da police' happen to be Stormtroopers, and they really aren’t happy to have their cargo stolen. The guys check out Star Wars: Battlefront’s Cargo game mode, on the Xbox One, all that’s missing is the fluttering trail of cash.

This Week In Videogames – 22/11/2015

Compressed ghosts, big explosions, and ‘Gouache’ – whatever the hell that is – it’s Sunday again which means it’s time for our weekly roundup of videogame news stories. Upon reflection I seem to have gathered an alarming volume of old games to talk about, but don’t let that put you off, we’ve got pornographic charts too!

Review – Star Wars: Battlefront

There’s a palpable glee, a joy that only the white of a Stormtrooper’s armour, or the hard angles of an Imperial Star Destroyer can evoke in me, and those are two things Star War: Battlefront packs in abundance. I have made no secret of my addiction to (most things) Star Wars and that’s a double-edged sword I think; yes, it has a certain thematic advantage over my tastes, but when it is done a disservice few people are better placed to decry it. What will Battlefront’s flavour be I wonder; the sweet zest of glee or the sour tang of disappointment?

Dropping In – Star Wars: Battlefront, Fighter Squadron

The guys take a pass over the wastes of Tatooine to bulls-eye Womp Rats… Metaphoric Womp Rats that is, because they aren’t flying a T-16, no, the TIE Interceptor is a far more beautiful craft, and X-Wings such enjoyable prey. It’s Star Wars: Battlefront’s Fighter Squadron in all its glory. 

Dropping In – Mordheim: City of the Damned

Though ill-advised, Kyle and Matthew gorge in Wyrdstone and take to the hell-warped streets of Mordheim, hunger not yet sated. Mordheim is a PC Early Access adaptation of the classic Games Workshop table top game of the same name, its due to release in full any day now.

Review – Fallout 4

Stock up on Rad-Away and invest in a suit of T-51 Power Armour because it’s time to venture out onto the wasteland and it’s packed full of more rabid denizens than ever before. Yes, it’s Fallout 4 one of the games I least wanted to play this year, bearing that in mind my thoughts on its quality may well surprise you.

Dropping In - Fallout 4

The guys drop into the rad-ruined wasteland of Boston to... Arrange chairs? Matthew and Kyle exchange stories of their respective journeys through the behemoth known as Fallout 4, demonstrating the settlement building system, use of Power Armour, and of course unleash VATs on a den of hapless ghouls.

Dropping In - Call of Duty: Black Ops III

Kyle and Matthew ditch their limbs and go full robo as they bring war to the surprisingly high-tech gangs of Singapore’s slums, in Call of Duty: Black Ops III, played on the Xbox One.

This Week In Videogames – 15/11/2015

There too many videogames, too many I say! I tore myself away from the wasteland of Boston and the battlefields in a galaxy far, far away to bring you this week’s news. Almost a week of frantic third-person shooting has ensured that each word was typed with cramped fingers and pained wrists, enjoy.

SW:TOR, Knights of the Fallen Empire, Chapter II A Dream Of Empire

Having wrestled control of the Eternal Throne from his father, Arcann pinned the ‘tragedy’ on Ravanor and as all the best villains do, he froze our unconscious hero in carbonite and poorly at that. It’s Chapter II of the Knights of the Fallen Empire!

Review – Call of Duty: Black Ops III

You know I was alright with wearing a strength boosting exosuit to wage war on behalf of my corporate overlords, but having my limbs replaced is maybe a little far. Call of Duty is back in the hands of Treyarch this year, so get ready to hear gruff military men bark on about ‘the keys’ and their abusive owners.

Dropping In - Sins of the Prophets, Alpha v0.75.1

It’s like Reach all over again... Matthew and Kyle stand by idly has human colonies are glassed into oblivion, turns out it wasn’t an envoy ship at all – oops! They’re checking out the latest alpha build of the Sins of the Prophets mod for Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion.

Sins of the Prophets Alpha v0.75.1 (ModDB).

Dropping In – Halo 5: Guardians

The guys drop into a match of the new bittersweet game mode called Warzone in Halo 5: Guardians, and it immediately becomes apparent that each has wildly different priorities when it comes to gauging the quality of said videogame.

Dropping In - Assassin’s Creed Syndicate

Matthew joins Kyle for a gander around old Victorian London in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, on the PlayStation 4. The guys undertake an assassination mission and show of how the optional side objectives can affect your approach. It is only proper to give a mild spoiler warning, although the target is Lucy Thorne, a woman who literally wears a Templar symbol on her arm, there’s really no surprises here.

Review – Halo 5: Guardians

Never has there been so much ONI in a Halo game before; slick, black, and manipulative the word is never far from lips in the campaign and somehow it has even managed to worm itself into the multiplayer too. If that’s not reason enough to pick up Halo 5: Guardians then I guess you should check out the rest of the review?

This Week In Videogames – 01/11/2015

The first of November, as far as I’m concerned we’re now firmly in the videogame release season, yet somehow those crazy developers keep on announcing games – back in my day it was E3 or nothing! It’s time for another week of news.
