Recently we met up with the guys at Gameforge, best known for their free-to-play titles TERA, Skill and Aion Free-to-Play. We had a chance to take a look at some of their latest titles such as HEX: Shards of Fate, Sigils and of course Orcs Must Die! Unchained. Orcs Must Die!…
Whether you play Hearthstone, Might & Magic, Magic the Gathering or any over TCG, you have a lot to love. Whether it be the collecting, the battles or even the art work. But with a lot of digital TCGs taking over the Free to Play market recently, there is a…
This preview of A Hat In Time is based on an in-progress version of the game. It does not represent the quality of the final release, which will available when development is complete. Without a doubt, KickStarter is one of the greatest inventions of the current century. It might have…
You’re down to your last torch as you stagger through the polluted ruins. Your Plague Doctor babbles about the horrors in the dark, while your Crusader hacks up blood from his infected wound. As you push through into the final room, you are startled by a party of undead warriors.…
H1Z1 has to compete with a lot of other Zombie Survival Craft titles, so the question is, how does it fare against the competition? As VGU's self proclaimed zombie survival expert, I naturally found all the previous videos and blog posts about H1Z1 completely enticing. With it's release, H1Z1 took…
Here at VGU we had a chance to take some time away from video game writing to play some actual video games and Evolve is one a lot of people in the team have been looking forward to since we played it at 2K's. As there were so many inching…
After trying out the game for the first time at EGX 2014, I was a little disappointed with how WWE2K15 felt. There were lag issues, the matches seemed very slow, and there were FPS drops between going in and out of the ring. My expectations were at an all time…
For the longest time, the Souls series has dominated in its own unique niche of the gaming market. With no one to really compete against them, the games have effortlessly gained worldwide renown and a big fan base to boot. However, do they finally have a competitor in the form…
Dead Island to me still stands out as a fun game. It does have its problems and can frustrate some gamers, but the pure enjoyment of hacking & slashing zombies with insane weapons felt great. At this year’s EGX 2014 in London, I got the chance to get hands on…
It has been a long time coming, but the lights are about to go green for the launch of Project CARS. I had the chance to experience what the game has to offer ahead of its release, and test whether Project CARS is actually leaving other racing titles in the…
With F1 2014 primed for release I had the chance to experience the console versions of Codemasters’ latest racing title, having previewed the PC version. It was no small decision to skip next-gen consoles this time around for Codemasters. The scrutiny on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 editions of…
Sandbox games have always grabbed my interest. Whether they be in a fantasy or realistic world, the chance to just go bananas in an open-world location is something I cannot pass up. This is why I am a fan of the Far Cry series, especially Far Cry 3. The game…
Monster Hunter is a game series that you simply have to play to believe. The bosses you face in this title are made to feel like hunting wild animals rather than fighting a super sized bad guy. This game is built around the idea of facing massively monstrous beasts to…
Showcasing Shinji Mikami’s return to the genre he helped to define, The Evil Within was playable at EGX 2014, so we decided to take a look. “It’s a hard game,” Bethesda warned us as we picked up our Xbox One controllers, but that only enticed us further. The demo threw…
If there is one kind of game I grew up on most as a child, it was the rhythm games. These were the titles that got you off of your feet, onto a dance mat and had you going crazy to some killer beats. For the longest time I have…
OOOOOO YEEEAAAHHH!! Get ready to step into a slim-jim and claim your championship belt as WWE 2K15 was on show at EGX 2014. This year’s entry is promising to bring the next generation to the table, with updated rosters, new mechanics, updated visuals and cleaned up animations. But does the…
We have seen many books that utilise pre-existing game worlds to tell a story but we rarely see books adapted into games. Besides the hilarious 8 bit Great Gatsby game and the Witcher series, I can’t think of many other books that have made a successful transition to games. Bedlam…
Nosgoth is soon to be a free to play title that is currently in development, and available for early access. Focusing on Vampires vs Humans, Nosgoth brings multiplayer combat to a new level. I pounce across the map, passing three humans and landing on their trailing companion. As my enemy…
