It appears Seb isn’t the only one eagerly awaiting the release of Bethesda’s latest masterpiece. That may seem a little presumtuous to call it a masterpiece before I’ve even had a chance to lay it but after viewing these gameplay demos there is little doubt in my mind that this game will easily live up to my expectations. Roll on 11/11/11 !

Serious Sam Double D: Bringing carnage to the 2nd dimension

September 11, 2011 Leave a comment

I could go on and on at length about the various reasons why this game is brilliant but you really need only 2 words to convince you. Gun stacking. Nothing quite says ‘awesome’ like a shotgun attached to a chainsaw attached to a rocket launcher with a couple of lasers added on for fun. While you are digesting that hefty chunk of delicious epic perhaps you would like those other reasons too.

Retrospectacles: Casual Gaming (a.k.a. The jeans and shirt combo of video games)

With the Wii comfortably leading the current generation of consoles in sales and Microsoft and Sony making their own forays into the niche market with Kinect and Move respectively, casual gaming has certainly taken a massive leap forward since the Wii’s release in 2006. Accessibility to the general public has become a necessity for new gaming platforms with the ability to drop in and out of playing with next to no prior experience becoming the most marketable feature of new games. One only has to look at the old Wii adverts with ‘Grandpa’ giving his best shot at the golf to see where the money is at. And besides being the leading cause of hip replacements in the elderly it has certainly improved the image of ‘gamers’ from acne-ridden hermits living in the constant artificial glow of a monitor to friendly, relatively sociable people who kick ass at plastic guitars with multicoloured buttons. So what brought about this drastic change of opinion? Why have games without any real objective other than to kill time become so popular?

Space Pirates and Zombies: Epic name, average game

When you’re asked to review a game called ‘Space Pirates and Zombies’ you can’t help but get a little excited.

Unfortunately not even the addition of ninja sharks with lasers attached riding the bear cavalry into a black hole could have saved this game from a startling mediocrity.

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!
