Stellaris: Synthetic Dawn

Ah Stellaris, we have had a love/hate relationship. Our cold metal machine based emotion cores have grown fonder over the years however, and I can feel arcs of electricity between us now as we take over the observable universe with our sentient machine race. It’s time to talk about the dawn… of the synthetics. Dun dun duuuun.

Tyranny Review – It Feels Good To Be The Bad Guy (Spoiler Free)

 

I feel like I need to preface this review with my previous exposure to isometric RPGs. I’m too young to have fully appreciated “old school” RPGs such as Baldurs gate, Planescape: Torment and Wasteland. I did indeed play Baldurs gate and Baldurs gate 2. The first of which was my mothers purchase when I must have been around 7 or 8 years old, 1999 or 2000. Obviously being a complex RPG the nuances were completely lost on me.

Funemployed!

Hey team! Seb, myself and a couple of other friends gathered together online to play some Funemployed on Tabletop Simulator. We now live all the way across the world so don’t have the luxury of playing our physical board games. This is the first time we have tried Tabletop Simulator and it was a reasonably seamless experience, but we will see how difficult things can get with more complicated games!

Hi folks! You may have noticed we have a schedule now, of course we never stick to a schedule but we certainly do try. This week Seb checks out the indie game Ghost of a Tale. The graphics and art style are super awesome but Seb doesn’t seem too impressed with the stealth mechanics. Anyway, have a look and see if it’s something you want to keep on your radar! You can access the video by clicking the title of this post, or by checking out the panel on the right hand side of the website.

Battlerite Early Access Impressions – Oh please no, take anything you want.. anything… just not my soul!

 

Here we are again. It’s like my gaming life has come full circle. Things started off  in 2009 when I was invited in to the League of Legends alpha. At the time LoL was pretty unknown, but since it was free I managed to convince a few of my friends to play. As the years went by we played more, and more, and more, and more. And suddenly its 2014, ALL of my friends played LoL and very regularly and we had done so for the best part of 5 years. LoL had the perfect mix of strategy, intuition, skill and grind that ticked all the boxes for an enjoyable evening of gaming. The biggest draw for me, towards the end was playing with all my friends. I grew tired of the toxic community and as such started only playing with my friends, and that gradually decreased my playing time until I stopped completely. Then came along Battlerite.

Early Access Evolution: Folk Tale

 

 

We at MMGaming love early access games. It gives us a good taste of what fun feature complete games to expect in the future and the added bonus of (hopefully) being fun while still in early access. So what happens to all those games that we tried out in early access years ago? The ones that may have been popular for a time on their early access release but have gone under the radar since then? Let’s see where some of these games are now… Starting with Folk Tale!
