5 Games in 5 Minutes – Clustertruck, Book of Demons, Full Mojo Rampage, Rogue Wizards, Slime Rancher

As part of the ongoing attempt to spruce up MMGaming, to produce better, more informative and more amusing content, we present the first of a new series. Check it out after the jump and enjoy! 5 Games in 5 Minutes does exactly what it says on the tin. We have a number of games which we are either too busy or are simply not worth playing fully. With these games it is difficult to provide a full and accurate review. So, instead, we briefly play the game (enough to garner a decent first impression) and then quickly give you the run-down in one minute. It is designed to give you a quick impressions of a few smaller games to see whether or not it will pique your fancy.

Video Mondaily – Hawken First Impressions

Hey, it’s been a while since we did one of these! Don’t worry! We’re still  not ACTUALLY dead. We’re just in the middle of The End Times (capitalization intended and necessary). Winter is Coming, and all that jazz. BUT we’re still playing vidya, just not perhaps with the same frequency as we would at any other time. And, let’s be fair, our posting rate has been utterly abysmal lately. Anyway! Tim recently jumped into the free-to-play Hawken beta by Adhesive Games (which is currently on Steam) against some AI to give a brief first-impressions of a very cool and very polished looking FPS. Check it after the jump!

Video Mondaily – A first impressions of Impire

Hey look! We’re still not dead! Somehow… Anyway this Monday’s video comes at us courtesy of Paradox Interactive and Cyanide Montreal. The game I am playing here is their recently released strategy Impire and giving both me and you guys a first impressions look at it. Having never played the game before I had no idea what to expect going in except that it was an RTS and you play as an evil imp (hence the name). Check after the jump for the two videos so that you can have a look at some of the gameplay and at the style of the game! Remember if you do enjoy the video to head over to the Youtube Channel and send us some feedback. We always like to hear back from people!

The Banner Saga: Factions – Impressions

The Banner Saga is described as a role-playing, turn based strategy created by Stoic Games. The single player game is actually still in the process of being developed by the team at Stoic and utilising Kickstarter as a means of obtaining funds. As a basic description of the gameplay it appears to be an interesting and relatively unique style of RTS in which you choose a team of Viking-esque soldiers and then utilise your team on a grid-battlefield, moving a unit per turn switching between both sides. Currently, as I say, the singleplayer has not been released. However, the free-to-play online multiplayer portion of the game: Factions has recently been released and is available for download from both Steam and the game’s official website. Tim has now taken the opportunity to give us a look at the gameplay and style of The Banner Saga in an impressions video which you can find after the jump. With a rather nice graphics style and a pretty cool gameplay mechanic (not to mention it’s free) The Banner Saga: Factions is certainly worth looking at in our video!

Hard Reset: The Marmite of the Gaming World

Big things have been happening here at MMGaming: no longer are we a tiny site at the corner of the internet. We are now a tiny site at the corner of the internet that some developers actually know about! As such the wonderful people over at Flying Wild Hog Games (non-indie, composed of former The Witcher 2 and Bulletstorm staff just-so-ya-know) gave us the chance to preview their up and coming cyberpunk FPS game for PC: ‘Hard Reset’. So without further ado let’s take a look!

Ex Vitro: No Metroids here!

I should first of all point out that this is simply my first impressions of the game having played a demo version. The game is still being developed so this will not be a 100% accurate representation of the game. Pretty close though…
