Stellaris: Synthetic Dawn

Ah Stellaris, we have had a love/hate relationship. Our cold metal machine based emotion cores have grown fonder over the years however, and I can feel arcs of electricity between us now as we take over the observable universe with our sentient machine race. It’s time to talk about the dawn… of the synthetics. Dun dun duuuun.

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.

MMGaming – Where are we now?

Hi guys, This is just a quick blog post to update you on the happenings of MMGaming.Net. As you can see, we have had a major redesign of our website and our branding across all our social networks and YouTube. We also have aims to produce more unique and high quality content to accompany our fresh design; Board Game Let’s Plays, Board Game Reviews, MMGaming drinking games and the usual video game reviews.

MMGaming E3 Roundup

  Wow. It really has been this long since we have posted on MMGaming! As much as we would love to post regularly, “real life” commitments meant that our time was focused on other things, such as Seb getting his 2:1 degree in molecular genetics (congrats bud!) and myself working hard on my PhD. However, if there is one event that brings us back on track in the gaming world it’s the one and only Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3 noobs).

Nidhogg Review

Hey guys, I’d like to introduce you all to Brian, a new writer for MMGaming! Check out his first review for Nidhogg below. You can find more of his stuff at  SomeBrianDude Reviews.  Nidhogg is a game of inches. A false move will end with being skewered on a rapier, and a mistimed jump will send you tumbling down a (presumably) bottomless pit. The margin for error is tiny, but that’s where the joy in this title lives. There are little more satisfying feelings in all of gaming than beating an enemy who just pushed you to edge of defeat, and tasting your reward for victory – being eaten by a giant worm.

We Are Dead! Almost.

  It’s true! Seb and I aren’t dead, rejoices all round. I have to apologise for the lack of posting on the main site and our Youtube channel for the last month or so. It isn’t that we are no longer interested in MMGaming, in fact our interest is as strong as ever. Unfortunately it has gotten to that time of year where exams are looming and these ones are the big finals. This means that I will be out of action for the next month or so until the 8th of May. HOWEVER! Do not fret, I am planning a beautiful relaunch of content over the summer (bar a break for a USA vacation) that will be jam packed with reviews, previews and general gaming content. Seb does not have finals, only 3rd year exams yet I expect he will be also revising hard (right Seb?). If he isn’t, he will be absorbed in getting a higher gamerscore rather than playing new and interesting games making content for y’all. Who even cares about gamerscore anyway? One day Seb will be fully converted to the PC master race. Until then, we must put up with his Xbox ramblings about gamerscore and the such like. More like GAYmerscore. Adios and see you all on the other side. Tim

All aboard the Hype Train.

Choo choo motherf*****. A quick list of games we are hyped about at MMGaming. If the game is HOT, we are checking for updates on this bad boy every day. Wildstar (80% HOT) Titanfall (65%) The Division (60%) Watchdogs (40%) NEW – Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor  (20%)

Tower Wars – Tower Defence/Attack (Video Impressions)

Tower Wars is Supervillain Games’ shot at making a multiplayer tower defence game, which recently seen its release on Steam for £6.99 (About $11).  Ingredients for this game: take your Tower Defence genre and add the multiplayer element, here we have the base of the game. Now add a dash of Real-Time Strategy, being careful not to add to much, finally add a very generous lump of Steam Punk style and leave to bake for 25 – 30 minutes… No but in all seriousness this is a very fresh and brand new type of game in our eyes.

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.
