This week Gamer Limit catches up with Wolfire Games, creators of the cult game Lugaru. We discuss the indie game scene, surviving as an indie developer, and their upcoming game Overgrowth.
Most people interested in this newest map pack enjoy the online multiplayer component to the game, but anyone who does not like the zombies must be a zombie themselves. We learn a little bit of new information including the fact that these newest zombies are in fact not Nazi.
Who was excited for Alan Wake way back in 2005, when it was first announced? This news writer admits that he’d never heard of it until 2007…after which he’d never heard of it again. Still, the strange thriller about a journalist who kills monsters with flashlights sounded pretty intense.
Still, the game’s future looked grim after a while, having been announced in 2005, but still not having been released. Thankfully, things are looking up for Mr. Wake; developed Remedy Games has just made an announcement that signifies good tidings for Alan.
One of the biggest hits of 2008, Fallout 3 has seen high praise for their Downloadable Content, and this praise will soon come from the mouths of Sony fans as DLC hits the currently excluded PS3.
Bethesda have stated, “We have been working on implementing it for a while and look forward to bringing it to PS3 gamers via the PlayStation Network. Operation: Anchorage will be released for PS3 in late June, followed by the release of The Pitt and Broken Steel 4-6 weeks apart.” Read more… »
Gas Powered Games holds a special place in my heart. After revolutionizing the RTS arena with Supreme Commander, it was difficult to play any other RTS that didn’t allow me to zoom out so far I could see my name in turrets. So I was pretty excited to hear about DemiGod, a DOTA styled RTS that not only allowed me to zoom in classic GPG style, but control ridiculously powerful beings and dominate my opponents in a tournament style setting.
But what I’m sure a lot of you Ancients devotees are wondering: is it the killer app you have been waiting for? I guess you’ll have to follow myself, and Colin, as we took on this multiplayer only epic to see if it could take down a DemiGod of its own.
Recently, I decided to take my dusty copy of Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn for a spin. I know that a lot of you are gasping now, or perhaps scratching your heads, but its true. This is my first play-through of the fabled series. However, I am no stranger to Bioware’s fantastic D&D based video games.
I played both Icewind Dale 1 and 2, with the later being one of my favorite gaming experiences. What really turned me off from Baldur’s Gate when I first tried playing it nine years ago was that my computer at the time was too weak for a full install. So every time I left certain areas…I had to put a new disc into the drive. Yes, I am lazy.
Now that my computer has the cajones to handle the massive full install (which isn’t so massive anymore), because im still too lazy to change the discs, my journey into the forgotten realms is finally underway, and I thought I would share my experience so far with you. Read more… »
There were reports from multiple sources that the servers for Killing Floor were not allowing some to log in. This was even stopping our very own from reviewing it for you, the reader! It was a rough launch for the title, and nobody likes to feel like their game is broken. We’re happy to let you know that they’ve got their ducks in a row, and the issues straightened out. Hit the jump for a full list of patch notes!
ACE Team’s creative use of story telling, game play and design all crammed into Valve’s Source engine is truly a product that pushes video games ever closer to an art form. Zeno Clash is so bizarre and brutal that it is one of the most beautiful games made by any independent developer. The game redesigns the first person shooter genre from the run and gun type to the more up close and personal melee combat. It’s a nightmarish paradise mixed with a fantasy reality. This game is so cunning that it breathes life into the make-believe. Read more… »
The one thing about PC gaming that is difficult to keep up with, are the rigorous system requirements that exsist to play many titles that are already on a console. Street Fighter IV seems to buck this trend with fairly reasonable system requirements. I think we’re dealing with more of a beautiful art style, than performance intensive graphics. Check out the specs below!
Battlefield 1943 takes you back to WWII and throws you into the battlefield across the islands of Wake, Iwo Jima, and Guadalcanal. This new trailer features Pacific warfare in Iwo Jima loaded with ground combat and carpet bomb attacks from fighter planes. Hit the jump to read more and watch the clip.
And Yet it Moves is one of the most highly praised indie games of this year, so we took it upon ourselves to find out the history of And Yet it Moves, how it’s currently going and what the developers are planning to do next.
And it turns out the cards may be from an entirely new deck. A community manager from Blizzard Entertainment has confirmed that there is a new project in the works at Blizzard, and it’s not going to be a “craft.” Read more… »
