October 25, 2011 3 comments

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.


I’m a big fan of the series so I was asked have a look at back what made this game so great. Was also told to keep it short.

While not particularly relevant to me, it may be that some of you gamers out there don’t like playing on computers. Perhaps you dislike using mice and keyboards or perhaps you just don’t have a particularly good computer (and trust me, I know that feel bro).

Grand Theft Auto V

Ah well, I suppose it was almost bound to happen. If people still buy them, then companies still make them. The above photo is pretty much all that is known right now (as far as I understand) and was taken directly from here.

So a new Grand Theft Auto you say? Well I wouldn’t mind one thanks. But forgive me if I don’t go into overdrive excited mode. GTA has entertained and diverted me in the past, but it’s never been something where I’ve thought “I cannot live without that game!”.

Stronghold 3 Release Gets the French Treatment

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

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…
