Sword of the Stars 2: Lords of Winter Screenshots

October 30, 2011 4 comments

Hey guys, Given the utter fail that was the Sword of the Stars 2 release I felt perhaps I could help motivate some gamers to hang on.

So here you go, a few more Sword of the Stars 2 screens to make sure you don’t just totally give up. I wouldn’t go buying it right now, not until everything’s been fixed, but if you’ve already bought the game relax and wait it out, I think everything is going to be just fine.

Sword of the Stars 2: Release Fail

October 29, 2011 Leave a comment

So last night was the launch of Sword of the Stars 2: Lords of Winter but in all the excitement I seemed to forget that Steam is a lazy, buggy, money grabbing heap of bollocks. Ok that’s not really fair, I mean it is, but on this particular occasion it is probably more the fault of developers at Kerboros or more likely a rushed release by Paradox Interactive. Honestly folks, I’m as information starved as everyone else so it’s hard to point fingers.

In celebration of the release of Sword of the Stars II: Lords of Winter and our Epic SotS competition I’m going to give you a quick run-down of what made the first game the incredible, addictive and down right hard-as-nails work of gaming art it was.

Well today’s the day castle nerds like me have been waiting for. The long awaited release of Firefly Studio’s Stronghold 3.

But those who bought the game after the pre-load were in for a choc plutôt désagréables when they found that the game had only been supplied with French and German language options; with French being the default setting.

Iron Grip: Marauders

Hey everyone its CrossCrash I’m back for another MM Gaming Guest Review.

This time I’m looking at Iron Grip: Marauders a steam-punk-esque turn based strategy game currently available free to play on steam.

Now I’m gonna put a disclaimer here: During the review you will hear me talk about Ogame a lot. That’s because aside from the 3D strategy element that’s exactly what the interfaces remind me of. I’m not saying the games are similar in a wider sense but in the browser they do feel quite alike. Well mechanically at least. Basically I was looking for a point of reference for browser games and it was that or Farmville…
