Another day, another Early Access game! Darkwood is a game which takes place in some creepy woods in Soviet Bloc territory. What the hell is going on there?
Ubisoft tends to end its annual E3 conference with a bang. In the past, it’s given us glimpses of games like Watch Dogs and The Division. This year, we got to see a brand new Rainbow Six. I have a soft spot for Rainbow Six; I played far too much of the first RB6: Vegas as a co-operative game. This new one seems to be focused a lot more on the adversarial multiplayer aspect.
If there’s one kind of pornography that never gets me into trouble, it has to be car porn. Those sumptuous spoilers. The feel of some bonnet booty. The lure of the leaf spring! The caress of the crank-shaft! All this, and more in the upcoming closed beta for The Crew! Here’s what you’ll find in that test version of the open-world racer.
Want to see what I saw of The Sims 4 at E3? Well, even though the presenters and Sims were different, the highly staged gameplay walkthrough is almost identical to what I saw. However, we do get a glimpse of future features that might not make people too happy.
From everything we’ve heard about the newly rebooted Doom, it sounds like the glorious union of old-school sensibilities and new-generation technology. Doom sounds very much like it’s getting the same sort of attention to detail and love as the recent Wolfenstein: The New Order – and for fans, that’s exciting stuff. Pity you probably won’t get to even see it until next year.
The Steam summer sale is finally well behind us. It was a tough time, with my wallet shedding tears every few hours because I absolutely had to buy whatever was dirt cheap. It’s not all glitter and rainbows though (for the wallets anyway), because Steam are playing home to Indie Piñata, a sale dedicated to a selection of indie games. Run wallets, run!
You know how we keep debating if eSports is a "real" sport and when will it get noticed/appreciated by a mainstream audience? Well, much like the 4th of July hotdog eating competition and World Series of Poker, eSports has finally gotten the attention it deserves, from ESPN.
Welcome to our weekly post of featured downloadable content available for different gaming platforms sponsored by www.evopoints.co.za. Hit the jump for this week’s list of fresh downloadable games and content.
Early access has been getting some regular coverage lately here at Lazygamer.net. It's a potentially dangerous thing which could see you spending money on a game which is either junk, or a game that may never see an official release if the developers hightail it. On the flipside, you get those developers who pour their souls into their work and their games genuinely evolve based on the feedback received from those gamers who pay upfront. I’ve spent some time with Door Kickers, an early access game on Steam, and it looks to be a solid investment.
I’ve been enjoying my time with Heroes of the Storm so far. I honestly think its the perfect place for beginners to get into MOBA’s, yet fun enough to keep veterans interested. There are already a variety of maps available, but Blizzard are releasing another one soon; the Garden of Terror.
It’s been a while since we last took a look at what is happening on our official Minecraft server but it looks like some people have been busily working away and making some really cool things.
People who pre-ordered Dark Souls 2 were treated to a bunch of cool swords, staves and axes. They could all eventually be found in the game - in the palace for sale from the ghost. However, they certainly can be helpful when you first start the game, and thanks to a hidden file, they can actually be yours.
Typing that title felt just as ridiculous as it sounds. Ever heard of Hatoful Boyfriend? It was a visual novel/dating simulator back in 2011, created by Hato Moa. You take the role of a human girl who starts attending St. PigeoNation’s Institute. The catch? All other attendees are pigeons.
I'm rather wary of Kickstarter. I’ve always been afraid of the recipient of all of that delicious crowd-funding to take the money and run, or run out of funding and end up not being able to deliver the product. Nobody imagined that would happen with Yogventures, the Yogscast game. Those YouTubers have become a a beloved media empire - so this is inconceivable! Only that’s what’s happened – and backers are now out of pocket.
