Wolfenstein: The New Order review – William Blazkowicz did nothing wrong

I remember being very iffy when I heard the announcement for the latest iteration in the Wolfenstein series of games (an announcement which is now lost way back in the mists of time) but a lot of my fears were rather quickly assuaged by the fact that the game would NOT be set during World War 2, like every other Wolfenstein, and also by the trailers which showed an alternate timeline where the Nazi’s won World War 2 and now ruled the world (and indeed everything else as well basically). This alone seemed like a decent selling point as I am new enough to cyberpunk and steampunk that I am not worn out on them yet but it also was rather innovative, in a slightly cheating sort of way.

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…

Our Thoughts On: Blacklight Retribution

Tim has been hard at work the past few weeks and has came up with another couple of “My Thoughts On” various different games. Today’s video is a “My Free Thoughts On” the free to play FPS Blacklight Retribution from the developers Perfect World. It’s an awesome semi sci-fi shooter featuring intense combat and a mass of customisation and quite a few nifty gameplay mechanics which make it stand above the usual modern shooter crowd. To check out some of the gameplay and to hear what Tim thinks about the game you should check out after the jump and, as always, the official MMGaming rating of the game will be after the video. Also, once you check out the video and realise that the game is pretty damn awesome you can head to the above link and download it!

Aliens: Colonial Marines gameplay trailer

I’m still aiming for an air of being aloof and not really caring too much about Aliens: Colonial Marines, due to the poor experiences I’ve had with past Alien/Predator games. But I have to say this latest gameplay trailer actually doesn’t look all that bad and you can check it out here after the jump!

Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad otherwise known as Heroes of Stomping my face…

Well I finally got my act together and here is my long-awaited and long-outdated review of Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad. First off, just to goad Tim a little, I will say that I had perfectly good reasons for not being able to get this done sooner! Plus a diary of my slow adventures through it like I am doing with Gears of War 3 would have just been silly. Because every single mission is the same. Blast! I meant to say something nice first! Otherwise it won’t make any sense… Okay, take a chill pill and let’s get started.

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!

Retrospectacles: FPS Games (a.k.a. Is that a pistol in your pocket or are you just playing with a joystick?)

I’m going to take a shot in the dark here (yeah, look forward to more terrible puns) and guess that the vast majority reading this article have at some point in their lives played something out of the “Unreal Call of Halo 1942: Pacific Crysis” bandwagon. Not surprising really when the FPS genre is probably the most sure-fire (told you) profitable area of the industry right now with an endless stream of remarkably similar games trying to slice out their own little market share from the humongous money filled pie. I wonder how it was baked…
