Metro Exodus Review

Metro Exodus reviewed by Tristan Ogilvie on Xbox One X.

The year is 2036. A quarter-century after nuclear war devastated the earth, a few thousand survivors still cling to existence beneath the ruins of Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro. They have struggled against the poisoned elements, fought mutated beasts and paranormal horrors, and suffered the flames of civil war. But now, as Artyom, you must flee the Metro and lead a band of Spartan Rangers on an incredible, continent-spanning journey across post-apocalyptic Russia in search of a new life in the East.

Metro Exodus is an epic, story-driven first person shooter from 4A Games that blends deadly combat and stealth with exploration and survival horror in one of the most immersive game worlds ever created. Explore the Russian wilderness across vast, non-linear levels and follow a thrilling story-line that spans an entire year through spring, summer and autumn to the depths of nuclear winter.

Inspired by the novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky, Metro Exodus continues Artyom's story in the greatest Metro adventure yet.

REVIEW: Hyperide for Nintendo Switch

Review by Jon Donnis
Hyperide for Nintendo Switch is very much your arcade side scroller but with a twist, unlike classic games like R-Type this is not just a "hold your finger on the fire button" type game, instead the main flow of this game is avoid obstacles. Those can vary from asteroids to black holes.

Along the way you have the usual collectables that improve your ship, but you also have astronauts that you have to save, who are conveniently floating in your direction.

You can travel through worm holes to reach different parts of the universe. The game has 7 different void quadrants and 3 different game modes.

As you have come to expect from - Kool2Play, a studio from Warsaw, the sound track is impressive and the heavy beat trance style tunes help pump you up as you play.

The graphics are very good, and the ships you can choose from have taken inspiration from various sci-fi franchises, the most obvious one being Star Trek.

The game plays very well on the Switch, and the controls do seem almost perfectly made for the Switch.

The game may not be an all time classic, but if you are a fan of the side scrolling obstacle avoiding arcade game, then you should very much enjoy this, as I have done.

I gave this game a strong 8/10

You can get this game now from the Nintendo Store for only $1.99

The Sect of Metal runs amok in the new Season of Heavy Metal Machines

Florianopolis, Brazil - January 6, 2019 - Crazed religious fanatics are loose in Sect of Metal, a new Season that is available right now on the free-to-play car combat PC MOBA Heavy Metal Machines. The Season expands the game’s lore, bringing new insights into the machinations of the violent Sect of Metal religious order, as well as 90 new items, such as new skins for characters that have been “converted” to the sect: Rampage, Little Monster and Killer J.

This new chapter of Heavy Metal Machines now explores one of the richest and most popular facet in the game’s lore, and gave room for the art team to bolster the quality of the new assets, based largely on feedback from the game’s passionate community.

“We are also working on loads of new features based on the community’s feedback”, says Tatiana Moreira, Hoplon’s Head of Marketing and Publishing. “The community was the first to know about the theme of the Season 3 and already know a little bit about Season 4. Their approval is very important for us.”

Heavy Metal Machines came out of beta in September of last year, with the introduction of the Metal Pass progression systems and it‘s first Season, the gelid Road to Malmheim, which was followed by the lovecraftian horrors of Into the Abyss, before the arrival of Sect of Metal.

Why Heavy Metal Machines rocks

Just the Beginning: More content constantly updated and new characters, arenas and game modes on the way.

eSports Championships: Planned competitive tournaments featuring cash-prizes to fuel the game’s eSports scene.

League of Angels III celebrates Theresa and her dancing

While large chunks of the UK may not agree, League of Angels III aficionados will know that Theresa is indeed a hero. Which is why the game is putting on a special event in her honour. Of course, we’re not talking about the embattled UK Prime Minister, but the flame-haired hybrid child of Prime Angel and Dragon King Ulysses.

In League of Angels II, Theresa’s life was full of conflict and uncertainty (ok, still the odd similarity) due to her special heritage. Essentially, she’s not had it easy — but League of Angels III is celebrating her kind, albeit rebellious, disposition with a special in-game event that players can find right now when they log into the game. So, let’s all celebrate Theresa for a change!

League of Angels III has also seen some big improvements recently: in version 4.0.0. the Guild War game mode has been rebuilt, with some new rules and upgraded rewards. A first Mythic Hero has been added, Victoria in the new Temple — Nebula.

January also saw a new Mount arrive — Night Falcon. One of the few flying mounts, Night Falcon grants a sharp rise in the battle rating of your heroes while also adding a huge amount of bonus HP, ATK and DEF. He also has fearfully sharp feathers and an imposing appearance; which doesn’t do any harm, right? This legendary mount can be obtained via the Wheel of Fortune.

January’s earlier New Year celebrations saw League of Angels III invite players to enjoy Angel’s Carnival — a holiday event whose origins go all the way back to Mikaela and Glacia’s reunion. Included among some tokens for turkey dinner and pumpkin pie is a new outfit, Silverfrost.
