Vermintide review – Ahm not a raaaaat!

Have you and your friends ever done that thing? Y’know, it’s later in the evening when someone says “man I kind of want to play some co-op games!” Then there’s the inevitable struggle to find something everybody enjoys and, more importantly, owns. Invariably, in these situations one ends up browsing Steam and the web for lists of the “best multiplayer games” so that you can avoid playing hours of Garry’s Mod (which, let’s be fair, tends to only be amusing in short stints). Every single one of these lists almost always makes some mention of Left 4 Dead and how it is a quintessential multiplayer and co-op experience (both local and remote). So it has always confused me how it seems nobody has really quite captured the same feeling of the games. Well, look no further friends, because Warhammer *hurrrk* The End Times *hurrrk* Vermintide does actually more than just come close. Aside from the silliness of having two subtitles (when really just “Vermintide” suffices) the game does so much right that I feel the need to say that it is definitely more than just a carbon copy of L4D.

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!

Endweek News – Awesome Gameplay of Dishonored, Concept Art of Episode 3, some Halo 4 stuff, Meeting the Pyro and the release date of Guild Wars 2

Another week has passed, I hope that for you it was more productive than mine was. The biggest news that you can expect from me this week is that I completed Deus Ex: Human Revolution on Xbox and despite constantly saving and being more careful than a very careful thing I managed to set off a bloody alarm at SOME point during the game without noticing and thus missed out on an extra 100 achievement points for my gamer-score. Honestly, I think that has thrown me into a bad mood and I… Oh you’re here for some REAL news? I forgot that this Deus Ex stuff wasn’t important… So what is important eh? What important shiz has been happiziling?

Endweek News (unfortunately late) – Much releases and trailers, some early 0x10c screenshots, a new Borderlands character and some Bullshit Excuses

A number of you might have noticed the conspicuous absence of any Midweek News this past week. Well I fear those sharp-eyed amongst you to have spotted that will probably spot similar things again over the coming weeks due to a number of excuses that we at MMGaming have. Very good excuses actually, I’ll have you know! We can’t spend all our time playing games and talking about them… Ye gods! What the hell am I saying?!? Levity aside, it’s actually true. Nick and Josh both have commitments outside of the world of gaming which make the time they can spend on MMGaming fairly limited and me and Tim have now, once again, entered that foul time period known to all in University… Yes my friends we are once again preparing for exams and Tim at least won’t be posting AT ALL while doing so. Coincidentally we both finish on the 14th of May so you should see a return to normal around then.

Mass Effect 3 videos launched from the Normandy

Bioware have launched a whole FIVE new videos related to all things Mass Effect 3. They show of the Player Choices, the Co-op multiplayer, the combat and action, the personalisation you can do your guns and your Shepard and the enemies you will be fighting. I actually haven’t watched ANY of them. You see, all the sites I’ve seen these videos posted on mentions Spoilers (as I am now) and I don’t want to spoil any of this great game. That said I thought I ought to tell you folks about them in case you do want to see some of the new stuff. Again, that said I actually had a bit of trouble finding the various videos on Youtube. So I’ll just refer you to Eurogamer who have all 5 videos set out in a nice format for you to watch at your discretion! Enjoy!

Syndicate Co-op Demo coming soon

You remember Syndicate right? The game that I only JUST heard about? Well a co-op demo is coming to XBL and PSN very soon. And when I say very soon I genuinely mean in like the next week or so. My understanding is that the XBL version will be available on the 31st of January while the PSN version will be avaliable just a scant day later on the 1st of February.

Syndicate looks Awesome

Something which has literally just jumped onto my radar is the up-coming FPS Syndicate, a reboot of a 1993 tactical shooter. Due out on the 21st of February and made by Starbreeze Studios it’s a game which apparently combines the cool sci-fi feel of Mass Effect and the intense shooting action of Crysis. Having had a look at the announcement trailer and a trailer for the 4-player co-op (both of which solely feature in game-footage) I have to say it really does look pretty fucking awesome. I’d definitely suggest keeping an eye on this and watching the trailers after the jump!
