Open beta begins Thursday for World of Battles: Morningstar. To kick it off, developer Frogwares has released the above video. Much can be gleaned from a trailer such as this — World of Battles: Morningstar is a Real Time Strategy (RTS) game. It offers many customizations that allow the player to really tailor the experience to his or her style. There are a variety of fantastic and less fantastic creatures that you get to control in heated battle  (8 to be exact).

Arguably, the surprising thing about this trailer is that the game looks good, F2P or no. I’ll leave it up to you decide whether it has the power to steer you away from Starcraft II or League of Legends for a prolonged period of of time; but at the price point of zero, where’s the risk of trying out new IP?

Today Czech developer Bohemia Interactive announced that the third installment in its ARMA series will be hitting PCs everywhere in Summer 2012.

For those of you who may not be familiar with the ARMA series, allow me to fill you in. Basically ARMA is a military simulator for the hardest of the hardcore.

To get an idea of what I mean, check out this video from PC Gamer showing some co-op multiplayer action. Read more… »

First person tower defense games are a rare breed, and certainly not a proven one. Ever since the lowly RTS genre birthed the tower defense genre, pretty much every developer out there tried to make a quick buck off the concept, and as a result, left many gamers nay saying the genre. Well, fear not, inexperienced tower carpenters, because Indie developer Coffee Stain Studios wants to make you a believer with Sanctum.

Is Sanctum worth the $15 plunge? Take a break from building that lengthy maze of yours, and read on to find out.

Fearing a tepid reception as a full standalone title, Valve first released Portal with the Orange Box alongside a host of well-established titles at a bargain price. Little did they know that just few short years later that little three-hour long bonus game would be one of the most critically acclaimed and beloved titles in recent history.

Now that they’re back to deliver a full blown sequel, one large question is raised. Does Portal 2 live up to the original, or will we need cake and grief counseling at the conclusion of this review?

Gamer Limit Review: Rift
By: | April 25th, 2011

In a market dominated by World of Warcraft, competitors need to do everything in their power to set themselves apart. Many MMOs have come and gone since Blizzard graced us with the world of Azeroth – some failed miserably while others resorted to the free-to-play market. But as many, including myself, have found out since Cataclysm, World of Warcraft has grown tired and uninspired. There is no better time for an MMO to step up to the plate than now.

“We’re not in Azeroth anymore.” A tagline that boldly tells gamers that Rift has in store for them something they have yet to experience. But has Trion created a game unique enough for the diverse community of MMO players out there? Does it have the legs to stand side by side with the beast itself? Read more… »

Melancholy music, a shady figure climbing through the window and a disappeared woman – these are some of the trademark elements of a 1940’s B movie. Add monsters to the mix and you have The Next Big Thing, Pendulo Studios’ latest foray into the point and click adventure.

Some gamers may scoff once they read the genre. Of course point and click has seen better days as it seems, outside of licensed games and established franchises, there is a substantial lack of originality in this particular space. But these scoffing gamers would be at a loss to just shirk The Next Big Thing. Instead of trying to redefine the genre, it finds originality by staying true to its essential pillars and excelling on every one – challenging puzzles, in-depth dialog and quirkiness of plot. The game even manages to pull off a couple surprises in the process.

Chances are that you didn’t play the original Section 8, and even if you did, you might not have the best things to say about it. The campaign wasn’t impressive in the slightest, and multiplayer lobbies were noticeably devoid of players. It wasn’t awful, but at least there was plenty of room for improvement.

It’s been nearly two years and TimeGate Studios is back with Section 8 Prejudice. All in all ,the TimeGate development team is looking to raise the bar of what gamers can expect from downloadable shooters: and at just a $14.99 price point, it’s hard not to bite.
