Syndrome review – Syndrome of a Down.

One of the worst things about becoming at least reasonably clued in to any particular medium is that you begin to recognise the patterns and tropes between titles. No longer do you approach every film/book/game with wide eyed optimism but instead with a leery cynicism as you point out every single thing that has been done previously. Of course, sometimes this sort of thing is just made a bit too easy for you and such is the case with Syndrome, a new indie horror by Camel101 in conjunction with Bigmoon Entertainment (the company behind Lichdom Battlemage).

Terraria and Tequila

So, this has been a long time coming. We actually recorded T&T at some-point mid/ate August in 2015, released a quick trailer around October and then just left it to sit and collect dust for a whole year. However, it is FINALLY here. Terraria and Tequila! Tim and Seb play a drinking game where every time you die in game we have to have a shot of Tequila (or a swig of fucking awful Tequila-infused beer). There’s a lot of dying, a lot of shots and a lot of cursing. Definitely well worth a watch ladies and gents! Plus, if you could nip over to Youtube and hit that Updoot and/or Subscribe button we’d really appreciate it.

Tyranny Review – It Feels Good To Be The Bad Guy (Spoiler Free)

  I feel like I need to preface this review with my previous exposure to isometric RPGs. I’m too young to have fully appreciated “old school” RPGs such as Baldurs gate, Planescape: Torment and Wasteland. I did indeed play Baldurs gate and Baldurs gate 2. The first of which was my mothers purchase when I must have been around 7 or 8 years old, 1999 or 2000. Obviously being a complex RPG the nuances were completely lost on me.

Funemployed!

Hey team! Seb, myself and a couple of other friends gathered together online to play some Funemployed on Tabletop Simulator. We now live all the way across the world so don’t have the luxury of playing our physical board games. This is the first time we have tried Tabletop Simulator and it was a reasonably seamless experience, but we will see how difficult things can get with more complicated games! Check it out —>

Ghost of a Tale Written and Video Impressions – Wee, sleekit, cow’rin, tim’rous beastie

  Hi folks! You may have noticed we have a schedule now, of course we never stick to a schedule but we certainly do try. This week Seb checks out the indie game Ghost of a Tale. The graphics and art style are super awesome but Seb doesn’t seem too impressed with the stealth mechanics. Anyway, have a look and see if it’s something you want to keep on your radar! You can access the video by clicking the title of this post, or by checking out the panel on the right hand side of the website.

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.

Fallout 4 review – I totally want to set the world on fire

Fallout 4 was my runner-up Game of the Year for 2015, and I want you to keep that fact in mind for the duration of this review. I enjoyed it a lot more than I think did a large amount of the gaming community, because despite a hugely successful launch I do continuously hear small niggling complaints about it. After all, as this is a Bethesda open-world RPG and so one expects to hear only praise and memes about it for the next 5 years, but one cannot help but notice that on places like Steam and Metacritic the average score is rather lower than one might expect. Unfortunately as well, is that these complaints were often about things that I too picked up on. So allow me to preface that despite the fact that this review might well sound rather negative, I did most definitely absolutely enjoy the game.

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!

Mage Wars Board Game review – Bro, do you even board control?

At MMGaming we don’t just draw the line at video games. We’re geeks through and through and something we have slowly but surely be gaining a profound appreciation of over the past few years is Board Games. So it seems reasonable that now we have developed a decent repertoire of board games, that we could start reviewing them in the same way we video games. Mage Wars by Arcane Wonders is one of the most stand out games I’ve ever played. Easily in my top 5, certainly in my top 3 and maybe even approaching the top spot of all the board games I’ve ever played. It’s no surprise really then that the game has been nominated for and won numerous awards since its release in 2012.
