Taking a stroll in Planetside 2

What’s the one thing that you never get in coverage about fast paced first person shooter games? I think it’s probably somebody with a cloak watching people play, but that’s what we did.

Coming soon: us sitting on a gate in Eve in a cloaked ship badly heckling ship loadouts. Hang on, didn’t we do that already?

Apotheon

You know those ancient greek pots with all that artwork on them? Imagine you could make a game like that, and imagine if it was free on PS4 if you have PS+. Wouldn’t that be a nice thing? Well that thing is Apotheon and we really like it.

Transistor

Last week we took a look at the PS+ games available on PS4 this month. I’ve decided to claim that forgetting to post them here was an experiment to see what it did to viewing numbers because that sounds better than the truth.

Transistor is a game by the people that made Bastion. For this reason alone you should play it. It’s also a very good game so consider playing it for that reason as well.

Rogue Legacy

Last week we took a look at the games available on PS+ for the PS4 this month, and like an idiot I forgot to post them here.

Rogue Legacy is a game that I suck at. You are a person in a suit of armour with a big sword and a special ability I constantly forget you have. You then die and a descendant is selected to take your place. Who also dies because I suck at this game. Still, the more I play it the more I like it. I just wish I didn’t suck at it.

#IDARB

We’ve been at the video again, and we’re spending the rest of the week looking at what games you get on Xbox One and PS4 this month just for paying MS and Sony for their subscription services. First up is #IDARB on on the Xbox, which is a multiplayer sports game that’s really quite fun and actually has local multiplayer using multiple controllers. Whatever will they think of next?

The game also features what may well be the most misjudged social media integration ever. Or it’s the most brilliant. It’s one or the other.

Crackdown

We’ve been taking a look at Crackdown. There are orbs. So many orbs.

How To Murder Time 4.03

It’s time for another podcast, and this week we’re saying heretical things about Elite Dangerous, discussing HR policy in Shadow of Mordor, avoiding the issue in The Witcher and not playing the title character in Gat out of Hell because he’s boring.

Besiege

What happens when the current craze for block based building games meets medieval war machines? You get an awesome puzzle game.

No war crimes were committed in this video. Except the ones that were.

Crashing in Burnout Revenge

What’s the best arcade driving game series ever made? That’s probably obvious if you’ve either listened to us before or read the title of this post. We’re playing the crash junctions in Burnout Revenge that are so sorely missing from Burnout Paradise.

Star Trek Legacy

It’s video time again, and this time we had a look at Star Trek Legacy, a largely forgotten game that features the proper voice acting of all but one of the Star Trek captains, as well as Shatner doing whatever it is he does when he can’t be bothered to act. The game is worth playing if only just to hear how bored Kirk is with the whole captaining thing.

We mess around with the odd Quantum Leap episode part because I lost my save and I can’t face getting through Shatner to get to the real actors on the other side.

It’s an interesting game that probably should have done better than it did as it’s one of the better Trek games made, although that’s not exactly saying much.
