REVIEW: Rigid Force Alpha

Review by Jon Donnis
I grew up playing arcade shooters like R-Type, in fact I spent a small fortune at the local arcade on that very game. So when I first heard about Rigid Force Alpha I was excited but also cautious.

With this being a PC / Steam game and this being a very much arcade/console type of game there will always be control issues, for example playing this using your keyboard is a big no no. And after a bit of teething trouble I managed to get my generic PS3 controller working, and boy does it make a big difference.

This is everything you love about side scrolling shoot 'em ups. But in glorious 2018 graphics, and an incredible soundtrack too.

You shoot the bad guys, wave after wave, you collect power ups, change weapons, collect orbs which allow you even bigger power weapons. And with various difficulty settings, this is perfect for newbies as well as seasoned shoot em up gamers like myself.

A really fun game, that I can really recommend. 9/10


More about the game:
Rigid Force Alpha breathes new life into the classic side-scrolling shooter genre with its lovingly hand-crafted 3D models, stunning environments, detailed effects and an electrifying Synthwave soundtrack.

Arm your fighter with numerous upgradeable weapon systems and supplemental Force Shards! Collect Energy Orbs to fill up your energy supply and eventually unleash an extremely powerful blast against your foes!

Rigid Force Alpha is available from Steam here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/724390/Rigid_Force_Alpha


REVIEW: 8-Bit Armies


Review by Jon Donnis
8-Bit Armies is a retro RTS game.

Following on from other recent "8-Bit" games, they continue the style of colourful, blocky pixel type graphics. This really does bring back memories for people my age of these types of games.

This is a simple game, 25 single player missions, 12 co-op missions, multiplayer and skirmish modes.

In the style of C&C & Tiberian Sun and Red Alert 1 & 2, people familiar with those games will instantly feel at home.

Best played with friends, but probably best to play through the single player missions first, unlock various things that way and then you will be better prepared for the multiplayer games.

This is a simple, fun game, perhaps not for fans of modern RTS games, but more for fans of old school games like Command and Conquer.

It might not win any awards for innovation or originality, but then that is not what this game is aiming for.

Perhaps the price is a little steep right now, but there is always a sale around the corner.

I give this game a solid 7/10

RuneScape’s record-breaking library of original music to be officially released for the very first time


RuneScape’s record-breaking library of original music to be officially released for the very first time
New orchestral music and classic tracks from Jagex’s iconic MMORPGs head to vinyl, CD & digital via a new partnership with Laced Records.

Watch “RuneScape: The Road to Harmony”, featuring The Philharmonia Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios, here:


9am, Friday 14th September 2018, Cambridge, UK – For the very first time, iconic music from both RuneScape and Old School RuneScape has been officially released to stream and purchase, publisher Jagex announced today. Thanks to a new partnership with Laced Records, two albums – RuneScape: The Orchestral Collection and RuneScape: Original Soundtrack Classics – are available digitally right now and are open for pre-order on CD and double deluxe vinyl albums.

Pre-Order via Laced Records:
North America: http://www.lacedrecords.com
ROW: http://www.lacedrecords.co

Featuring music rearranged by BAFTA award-winning composer James Hannigan (Harry Potter, Command & Conquer, Dead Space 3) and performed by The Philharmonia Orchestra at the world-renowned Abbey Road Studios in December 2017 and by the Slovak National Symphony Orchestra in Bratislava in 2012, RuneScape: The Orchestral Collection takes listeners on a classical journey to the fantasy world of Gielinor. The tracks from the Abbey Road sessions are all new compositions or new arrangements of classic tracks, with many making their debut on the album.

RuneScape: Original Soundtrack Classics takes a much more nostalgic journey through some of the most loved tracks from Old School RuneScape and the early days of RuneScape. The vinyl album is arranged to follow the first journey a player might have taken through Gielinor. The CD and digital versions include an incredible 19 bonus tracks, bursting with player favourites that would have been wrong to leave out. Pre-ordering the vinyl versions will also unlock digital copies, allowing people to enjoy their favourite tracks without delay!

RuneScape currently holds the Guinness World Record for the most original pieces of music in a video game (including expansions), with 1,198 tracks (July 2017). This figure has been growing ever since the game’s release in 2001, and in the last 12 months alone swelled to 1,228 tracks. Jagex’s partnership with Laced is a direct response to an online poll in 2017 that saw over 15,000 members of the RuneScape community overwhelmingly tell Jagex how much they wanted to see this library of music released, as well as what their favourite tracks are.

Additional music from the library are planned for release in themed collections over the coming months, beginning with two further soundtrack albums from RuneScape available digitally today RuneScape: The Arc and RuneScape: Menaphos.

“Jagex has an open dialogue with its community, involving players in how we develop the game and listening to what they have to say,” said Guy Pearce, Director of Brand and Creative Production.

“The community has been telling us for a long time that RuneScape’s music is, for many, the soundtrack to their youth and that they would like it to be more easily available. So, we’re thrilled to be able to make original, current and classical versions of some of their favourite tracks available for them to listen to where, when and how they want. This includes new previously unheard arrangements by James Hannigan, recorded with the Philharmonia Orchestra at Abbey Road last year.

“Holding the Guinness World Record for most original pieces of music in a video game is a huge source of pride for Jagex. Together these releases show the extent of the musical journey we have been on and we hope past, current and future players will enjoy them.”

Get to know the inspiration and development of Hodge the cat; a key character in ANOTHER SIGHT


Milan, Italy – September 13th, 2018 — Lunar Great Wall, the Italian developer behind the critically acclaimed Another Sight, released in September 2018 is delighted to share its latest behind the scenes video, ‘A study of Cats.’

The latest behind the scenes video can be viewed below:

Another Sight is available now on Steam:
https://store.steampowered.com/app/888630/Another_Sight

In this latest video, key members of the studio talk about their imagining and creation of our feline friend, and a character integral to the story in Another Sight. Hodge helps Kit as she discovers historical figures, mind-bending puzzles and an underground world full of secrets beneath Victorian London.

Inspired by Neil Gaiman’s urban fantasy, Neverwhere, Kit and Hodge encounter a hidden society made up of the world’s greatest inventors and finest artistic minds, including Claude Monet, Nikola Tesla, Thomas Edison and other historical cultural icons.

Another Sight Gameplay Features:

EMOTIVE DRIVEN – A story about a girl and her cat companion on a journey beyond sight and the real. A tale of warmth and intrigue is woven throughout the adventure, touching on trust, companionship and losing what we take for granted. Innovative gameplay and a story of heart is galvanized by a soundscape given life to by a symphonic orchestra to accent memorable moments between Kit, Hodge and the journey they’re on.

MASTERS OF THE PAST - Throughout the journey, Kit and Hodge will meet virtuoso artists such as Claude Monet and other cultural historical figures from the past, learning more about the world and dangers it presents. Each encounter visually impacts the world, taking on aesthetics of each creative movement from the famous characters Kit and Hodge meet.

STORY WOVEN GAMEPLAY – Use the unique abilities of each character to help Kit and Hodge traverse the world and overcome environmental challenges. Kit and Hodge can split up to investigate different areas of the locale that the other may not be able to reach, with both Kit and Hodge perceiving the world in very different ways, opening up different possibilities for overcoming their adventure.

Another Sight is out now on Steam and will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch later in the year.

REVIEW: Another Sight - PC/Steam


Synopsis:
A teenager who has lost her sight and a mysterious cat team up in a surreal fantasy adventure into the unexpected, weaving a tale that brings together some of the world’s greatest minds: Monet, Tesla, Edison and other historical cultural icons.

Review by Jon Donnis:
I have been looking forward to this game for a while, so to say expectations were high would be an understatement.

First lets look at the positives, the game is beautiful, stunning graphics, and an awesome soundtrack. A lot of effort has been made to make this game look and sound good. Special mention goes to the voice acting.

It also is an original idea, your main character is blind, and she can only interact with her surroundings through her senses. She is accompanied by a cat who you can switch controls to.

Now the negatives, the controls are poor, very clunky, jumping to new platforms never feels like you are quite in control. Because the teenager character is blind, she is incredibly slow to move and that is so frustrating. The cat is much better, much faster, but again trying to jump around is very hit and miss.

And regardless of how a game looks, if you don't feel in control of your characters you soon can lose interest.

Although a great idea for a game, it just doesn't quite have the right feel, it is very basic puzzle solving, move a lever here, swap to the cat to go stand on a pressure pad, switch back and so on. The game also has quite a few bugs which can end up with you getting stuck, or the cat disappearing.

I hoped for so much more and maybe after 6 months of bug fixes and improvements to the control systems, the game will be much better, but for now I can only give the game a 5/10

Surreal sci-fi game “Elea” launches for Xbox One and Steam®


Rotterdam, The Netherlands - September 6, 2018 - Today the first episode of surreal sci-fi game Elea launched as a console exclusive for the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X, and on Steam®. The game is fully Xbox One X enhanced, runs on 60 FPS and has dynamic resolution with native 4K Ultra HD support. Elea was developed by a small yet experienced two person core team at Kyodai.

Visit the Steam page: https://store.steampowered.com/app/812020/on
Visit the Microsoft Store: https://bit.ly/2LVpp9Y

A leap into the future
Elea is a first-person storytelling experience that revolves around space scientist River-Elea. It’s the year 2073 and mankind is living in revolutionary times. Space colonization is making rapid progress and humans have built thriving colonies on Mars and the moons Titan, Ganymede and Europa. Alien life forms have finally been discovered and the awakening of a sentient AI enables spaceships to travel at lightning speed. In the midst of these developments, humanity faces extinction due to a neural mutation, turning all earth-born children into violent psychopaths.

Remembering the past
Against this tumultuous futuristic backdrop, the story of Elea takes form. It all starts in a secluded house on the shores of Mexico, where Elea awakens. She’s pregnant with her second son, has just moved in with her husband and first son, and is preparing for a new life. In reality however, Elea is not in her home but in a recovery room somewhere, years later, revisiting her memories in some sort of simulation. As the memory trip progresses, the house and its surroundings start to change and deteriorate, as time passes and grief descends on a home that was once full of love and expectations.

Jagex also confirmed Old School RuneScape is now available to Pre-Order and Pre-Register from the App Store and Google Play at https://osrs.game/MobilePreRegistration

“The next few weeks are going to be incredibly exciting for myself, the Old School RuneScape mobile team, and for Jagex as a whole, as we count down towards the 30th October launch date.

Today’s invitation to Pre-Order and Pre-Register the game on the App Store and Google Play is a hugely significant one, and we can’t wait to throw open the doors next month.”

The highly-anticipated announcement comes after this summer’s extensive and overwhelmingly successful ‘Members Only Beta’, in addition to soft launches in Canada and Nordic countries, which have already seen some 500,000 Android players continue their adventures while on the move, on the sofa, or poolside on vacation.

Conor Crowley, Director of Game Development, Jagex said:

“2018 has been a year of significant milestones for Old School RuneScape on mobile, from the first closed betas at the start of the year, to the successful Members Only Beta and recent Canadian and Nordic soft launches over the summer, but none of them have been as highly anticipated as this. We are incredibly proud to confirm that Old School RuneScape on mobile is now just a matter of weeks from a full launch; we know our players – both existing and returning – have long wanted to play the game they love while away from their PCs. The countdown to 30th October is underway!”

Ever since a prototype of Old School RuneScape on mobile was shown at RuneFest 2017, the development team at Jagex has worked closely with the game’s community to ensure it delivers the same immersive living game experience, regardless of platform or device. Its top-level interface has been refined and optimised on mobile devices, including the introduction of a customisable, one-touch action button, and intuitive touch-screen controls. Featuring the RuneScape franchise’s trademark accessibility, players with devices running Lollipop (Android 5) and iOS 10 will be able to start or continue their Old School adventures across the world of Gielinor on the sofa or on the move.

Today’s announcement coincides with the launch of Old School RuneScape’s 139th quest: Making Friends with My Arm, where players will assist the maligned troll ‘My Arm’ as he tries to establish relations with the troll town, Weiss. Mobile players will be able to help My Arm out, as well as experience the many thousands of hours of available adventures, mini games, and skilling activities Old School RuneScape has to offer, in just a matter of weeks.

Milan, Italy – August 16th, 2018 — Lunar Great Wall, the Italian developer behind the much anticipated Another Sight, has today announced that Another Sight will be launching on Steam on 6th September 2018. To celebrate the announcement the developers have also released more screenshots and a brand-new trailer for the game.

https://store.steampowered.com/app/888630/Another_Sight

Marco Ponte, CEO and Founder of Lunar Great Wall commented: “Another Sight has truly been a labour of love for the team here at Lunar Great Wall. We’re now pleased to be able to share Hodge and Kit with the world and invite players to experience their journey with us.”

Another Sight is developed using Unreal Engine which has enabled Lunar Great Wall Studios realise their vision. Marco Ponte commented on using the Unreal Engine, saying “It is fantastic to have Another Sight powered with industry-leading engine. The reliability and completeness of the development suite provided with Unreal Engine allowed our developers to stay fully concentrated on gameplay and pursue our artistic vision for the project.”

Returning comment, Sjoerd De Jong from EPIC GAMES had the following to say on Another Sight incorporating the Unreal Engine “Unreal offers a complete suite of powerful tools which are designed to meet the needs of games developers across the world. It provides a solid foundation on which to build on allowing developers, such as Lunar Great Wall, to concentrate on creating award-winning stand-out games.”

ANOTHER SIGHT is a surreal fantasy adventure with steampunk elements set in London in 1899, towards the end of the Victorian era. With an emphasis on culture and character, ANOTHER SIGHT focuses on the emotional development of the relationship between its two protagonists, Kit, a refreshingly intrepid teenager, and Hodge – a mysterious red-furred cat.

They meet in the darkness of a London Underground construction site, after Kit loses her sight when the tunnel she had been exploring collapses. They team up for an adventure into the unexpected, with Hodge proving himself to be an indispensable companion, upon whom Kit will come to rely. Kit and Hodge explore a surreal fantasy world, both together and separately, each using their own unique talents to make their way through compelling environments, and to solve intriguing puzzles.

Beneath London, in a world inspired by Neil Gaiman’s urban fantasy, Neverwhere, Kit and Hodge encounter a hidden society made up of the world’s greatest inventors and finest artistic minds, including Claude Monet, Nikola Tesla, Thomas Edison and other historical cultural icons.

Another Sight Gameplay Features:

EMOTIVE DRIVEN – A story about a girl and her cat companion on a journey beyond sight and the real. A tale of warmth and intrigue is woven throughout the adventure, touching on trust, companionship and losing what we take for granted. Innovative gameplay and a story of heart is galvanized by a soundscape given life to by a symphonic orchestra to accent memorable moments between Kit, Hodge and the journey they’re on.

MASTERS OF THE PAST - Throughout the journey, Kit and Hodge will meet virtuoso artists such as Claude Monet and other cultural historical figures from the past, learning more about the world and dangers it presents. Each encounter visually impacts the world, taking on aesthetics of each creative movement from the famous characters Kit and Hodge meet.

STORY WOVEN GAMEPLAY – Use the unique abilities of each character to help Kit and Hodge traverse the world and overcome environmental challenges. Kit and Hodge can split up to investigate different areas of the locale that the other may not be able to reach, with both Kit and Hodge perceiving the world in very different ways, opening up different possibilities for overcoming their adventure.

Another Sight is launching on PC Steam on 6th September 2018 and will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch later in the year. The game can be viewed on Steam here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/888630/Another_Sight

New trailer reveals that sci-fi adventure ‘Elea’ launches on 6th September



Rotterdam, The Netherlands - August 13, 2018 - The first episode of surreal sci-fi adventure Elea will launch into the galaxy on the 6th of September. Elea is coming to Xbox One and Steam® and is already available for pre-order on Xbox One.



Visit the Steam page: https://store.steampowered.com/app/812020/rda

Inspired by the classics
Kyodai, the developer of Elea, got the inspiration for the game’s narrative from the books of classic sci-fi writers such as Stanislaw Lem, Arthur C. Clarke and Frank Herbert. Being big fans of story-driven first-person games, they asked themselves at the early stages of development what innovation Elea could offer to the genre besides its unique and touching story.

They noticed that many first-person adventures offer just one main distinct location, with one specific visual style. Inspired by their love of old-school platformer games, they decided to take a completely different approach for Elea. In classic platformer games the environments can vary from a lava level to a snow level, followed by a jungle level for example. The developers wanted to give Elea this same incredible variety in surroundings, to make it feel like an enormous journey through time and space.

A rising star
Elea already launched into Early Access on Steam® at the end of April. SOEDESCO’s community manager Marten Buijsse states: ‘’Thanks to the community’s enthusiasm and help, we have been able to finish and fine-tune the game based on their wishes and good advice. We are now confident that we can present Elea in its best form for the full release on Xbox One and Steam’’.

LONDON – August 9, 2018 - Netmarble Corporation, the fastest-growing mobile game company worldwide, today launched an update for its hit mobile MMORPG, Lineage 2: Revolution (http://l2.netmarble.com), introducing the Academy Clan – a tutorial for new and veteran players that guides players through the Clan system and helps them achieve victory.

Players level 10 through 180, who have yet to join a Clan, can join the Academy Clan to play through the full Academy Clan tutorial. Those who are part of the Academy Clan are able to stay a member until they reach level 181, at which point they will graduate and be recommended to join a player-led Clan. Players are also freely able to leave and register for the Academy Clan at any time.

To celebrate the new tutorial, three new Clan-specific events will be held from August 8 to August 29. The “For the Clan! Event” will offer special rewards including R-grade Armour Boxes, R-grade Mount Equipment Boxes and Radiant Upgrade Stone Selection Boxes to all players in Clans, including new Academy Clan players, after they have completed a series of Clan-specific missions. When members of a Clan donate items to their fellow members, they will also receive 1.5x more Adena than usual via the “Clan Check-In and Donation Reward Event.” A new “Clan Penalty Period Decrease Event” will also lessen the penalties of leaving and rejoining Clans during the event period, so players will have a chance to try out a variety of Clans.

A new Equipment Collection feature has also been introduced, where, by collecting specific Attribute Equipment through their time in the game, players will receive additional rewards and stats that will strengthen their character.

The Tower of Insolence will also now go up to 120 floors through the latest in-game update. All players will receive 500 Red Diamonds when they reach the 120th floor by August 29. Players can also compete to reach the 120th floor first during the “Tower of Insolence World’s First Clear! Event” from August 8 to August 29. The first 10 players from each server to clear the 120th floor of the Tower will be rewarded with Blue Diamonds. The first-place finisher will receive 5,000 Blue Diamonds, the second to fifth place finishers will receive 2,000 Blue Diamonds, and sixth to tenth place finishers will receive 1,000.

Wired Productions Announces Full Release Date for GRIP: Combat Racing



Watford, England - August 2, 2018 - Wired Productions Ltd., a leading independent video games publisher, and developer Caged Element Inc. today announce that GRIP: Combat Racing – a ferociously fast, futuristic arcade combat racer – will speed onto the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One, the all-in-one entertainment system from Microsoft, Xbox One X, Nintendo Switch™ and Windows PC via Steam® on November 6, 2018. Racers who pre-order through Game in the UK will receive the exclusive Nyvoss Hex Paint Kit, the Vortex Rim Pack, and five pre-order exclusive vehicle decals.

To watch the release date trailer for GRIP: Combat Racing via YouTube, check out the video, below.



“We're getting pretty excited as we near the finish line on GRIP,” said Chris Mallinson, Game Director. “It's been surreal to see this passion project evolve into the intense combat racing experience that players will soon be able to dive into."

GRIP: Combat Racing will see racers hurtling their way around 22 breath-taking tracks across a variety of hostile and foreign worlds, driving one of 15 armoured cars - some swift and agile, while others are brutish and heavily armoured. Players must be merciless; deploying a bristling arsenal of 9 outlandish weapons and power-ups to give them the advantage to take the lead against other fierce competitors. These weapons will allow players to not only target other cars, but also the destructible environments surrounding them.

Inspired by the Rollcage games of the late 90s and backed by a highly-skilled and accomplished team, which includes Rollcage programming veteran, Robert Baker, GRIP: Combat Racing celebrates the re-emergence of blindingly fast arcade combat racers, offering a true, wheel-gripping racing experience - where utter destruction serves one true purpose: be the first to cross the finish line.

Taking full advantage of the current generation of gaming hardware – and benefiting from the potential that comes with building on Unreal® Engine 4, the game accelerates ahead of the racing crowd by offering players gravity-defying physics reaching speeds of over 767 mph - making it the fastest racing game on four wheels. Along with the breakneck speeds and intense action, players will generate countless unforgettable gaming moments – online or offline – with split- screen races and tournaments. Born of the age of street racing, and losing none of its cut-throat nature, it’s not enough to just cross the line in GRIP: Combat Racing; more important is how you got there and how much destruction you have unleashed upon your rivals along the way.

Fans can get the latest news by joining the GRIP: Combat Racing communities on Twitter at @gripvideogame, Facebook at @gripvideogame, via #GRIPCombatRacing, and on Discord.
