I'm not sure what I was expecting when I started playing Gunpoint, but it surely wasn't a puzzle game. I thought it was going to be a neat little 2d shooter with some platforming spliced in and an interesting story. I realized pretty quickly that it was a mix of stealth and puzzle more than anything. Great stealth and puzzles.Read More
Re-posting this as much as possible to make sure everyone sees it.
I'm on a bad streak of iPad games nowadays, okay, Devil's Attorney was great, but the games I've been trying out recently... They're not very good. Take Doom & Destiny for instance, I'm kinda baffled how a game full of RPG maker assets could land on iOS. Can you even use RPG Maker to make iOS games? Probably not, but this game feels like it. Also it's pretty immature and dumb, like Unepic was. I probably would've cared much more about it if it played the story straight.Read More
Man, there's a lot of websites out there. Some for a lot of things, others for specific things. Here are my most-frequented ones:
- Pocket Tactics
Great coverage of "proper games" for your mobile devices.
- Red Door Blue Key
From the same network as Pocket Tactics, except focused on PC gaming, and in the same vein is tailored coverage not necessarily news news news.
- Evil Avatar
Not a place for in-depth journalism or articles, but they get their hands on a lot of news way before other sites seem to.
- Rock, Paper, Shotgun
PC-focused site, you probably already read RPS. If you don't: do.
- Shut Up & Sit Down
A website for board games! Weekly news, a video review every Friday; really stellar content.
Which sites do you read when it comes to games?
Risk of Rain has great core gameplay mechanics. It's a platformer/roguelike where you pick a character then need to find teleporters to get back to your ship without dying. There are tons of items you can randomly find during your journey, each class has different abilities, there are tons of unlockables / challenges, the game is pretty difficult but rewarding and I really love its style. It has, however, a fatal design flaw.Read More
Devil's Attorney is a nice little turn-based RPG for iOS. You play Max McMann, a shady defense attorney that'll defend anyone. You go to cases, fight with the skills you have unlocked, and then gain money to buy items and furniture that allow you to unlock more skills. The writing is very funny and even if the randomness breaks the game a little, I've enjoyed it so much that I beat it in a few days.Read More
While I already wrote some words on Path of Exile, a while ago, its recent re-release on Steam had me curious and I went back and tried it. I was supposed to write about Risk of Rain, but I spent most of this week and last week playing PoE. They've added some things, fixed others, and left most of it like it was before. My issue number one with the game - how floaty and unresponsive it felt - isn't a problem anymore...Read More
Now we at Nitrobeard have a love of glitch videos and overall gaming hijinks. Who can forget Brian Belida's classic 'a truck chase a scooter', or the hilarious 'fun with handling.dat'. But this Assassin's Creed 4 glitch is on a completely different level.
Some could call it not just a glitch, but maybe.....divine intervention?
