Battlerite Early Access Impressions – Oh please no, take anything you want.. anything… just not my soul!

  Here we are again. It’s like my gaming life has come full circle. Things started off  in 2009 when I was invited in to the League of Legends alpha. At the time LoL was pretty unknown, but since it was free I managed to convince a few of my friends to play. As the years went by we played more, and more, and more, and more. And suddenly its 2014, ALL of my friends played LoL and very regularly and we had done so for the best part of 5 years. LoL had the perfect mix of strategy, intuition, skill and grind that ticked all the boxes for an enjoyable evening of gaming. The biggest draw for me, towards the end was playing with all my friends. I grew tired of the toxic community and as such started only playing with my friends, and that gradually decreased my playing time until I stopped completely. Then came along Battlerite.

Early Access Evolution: Folk Tale

    We at MMGaming love early access games. It gives us a good taste of what fun feature complete games to expect in the future and the added bonus of (hopefully) being fun while still in early access. So what happens to all those games that we tried out in early access years ago? The ones that may have been popular for a time on their early access release but have gone under the radar since then? Let’s see where some of these games are now… Starting with Folk Tale!

Video Mondaily – The Forest Begins

“The Forest is an open world survival horror game currently in development for PC. Build, explore, survive in this terrifying first person survival horror simulator.” At least, that’s the tagline for The Forest by Endnight Games. What they weren’t counting on apparently was Tim being an absolute bad-ass and totally destroying the horrifying and evil denizens of the game. It’s hilarious, it’s awesome and it shows off an alpha version of a game which looks like it has a tonne of potential to be both amazing and properly scary. Check it out after the jump!

Video Mondaily – Sir, You Are Being Hunted

  Sir, You Are Being Hunted is a first person shooter set in a randomly generated British-style country full of forests, small villages, roads and all the sort of quintessential “British” rural necessities (or at least I believe that is what they were aiming for). Oh, plus there’s robots. The game is based around an alternate dimension sort-of-thing that the player has been teleported to in which you are the only human and steam-punk robots have taken over and are now trying to relocate your head from your shoulders. Plus they have top-hats, so they can’t be that bad.

StarMade Preview – SPAAAAAACE!!

  Ah.  It’s good to be back in the saddle and today I bring news of my week playing the Steam Greenlight hopeful StarMade.  “But what IS StarMade?  Can I spread it on my toast?” you may ask in a curiously attractive, yet nasal voice.  Well, beautiful internet person, let me tell (and show) you all about it after the obligatory bump.

Catch-Up News – Catching up from a time long since past…

I have no excuses of any real merit as to why I have not posted any News for the last two months and a half. Minus a week that I spent on Holiday without internet and the few days it took to move into my new student flat I really could have been posting Endweek News without any real issues. Seeing as it has actually been over a month since I last posted any form of News the prospect of posting EVERY piece of interesting News during that time makes me go pale with terror. I’ve posted long News posts before BUT I would very much rather avoid having to write out 10,000 words which, let’s be honest here, few people would ever struggle through (no matter how interesting the content). Instead, I did have a few tidbits I had collected with the intention of posting (but never got round to it) from in between our last post (on the 6th) and the present. Hopefully the interest level here will make up for the fact that most of them come really rather late…

Video Mondaily – Lots of Torchlight 2

Hey folks! Yeah we’re finally back after over two weeks of not posting we ought to be getting back into the game (pun intended). Seriously though the past few weeks have been a mixture of distractions, everyone being busy and most of us being lazy and so we haven’t been posting, I know it’s been ever longer than that since we’ve had some News, but hey… I was in holiday mode! Seriously though we ought to be getting back into the posting business properly round about now as we have all now settled into our respective Uni’s and are ready to work on things both Work and Game wise. Just as importantly we are already getting some great videos onto Youtube for you to check out! And today we have a rather nice little selection of videos for you to check out. Gary and Tim were lucky enough to start playing Torchlight 2, the top down RPG similar to Diablo 3, from Runic Games and have already created a number of cool little videos. Each video features a different encounter or a different challenge and most are conducted with the two of them mostly muddling their way through! So, short and sweet and you can check them out after the jump! Enjoy my friends! And remember to keep coming back for more!

War of Human Tanks – Preview

Fear not readers of MMGaming! Seb and Tim are back and we are ready to once again jump right back into our duties, and we promise they’ll be just as slow and haphazard as always… That’s just our style! Anyway this Friday’s review comes in the form of a Preview video Tim recorded a couple of weeks ago. War of Human Tanks is an anime style strategy game of a similar style to the famous Advance Wars for Gameboy, with the odd twist of a gameplay mechanic which is a combination of both real-time and turn-based strategy. In the game you take control of a number of, well as the name suggests, human tanks on a board covered in fog of war. The above interesting gameplay mechanic Tim shows and discusses and in the video you also get to see a fair bit of gameplay. You can check it out and read a little more after the jump.

The Humble Bundle 5, Limbo!

The video is now up! Watch it at the bottom of this post! Well then, the Humble Indie Bundle has been and gone yet again… What has it blessed us with this time around? Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Limbo, Psychonauts and Superbrother: Sword & Sworcery EP. I was mainly relying on the video I had made to do the majority of the talking with the short piece of gameplay and chat at the beginning. For those that dont like videos, ill try my best to sum it up into words. Don’t expect the works of Shakespear.
