Video Mondaily – Jumping on Command

A long time ago in a flat far, far away… (Also known as a few days ago in a flat in Edinburgh via an online messenger).

Tim: “Hey Seb, check out The Rake – Back to Asylum. Might be fun or make a good video.”

Seb: “What is it? What makes you say that?”

Tim: “It’s an Indie Horror game, check it out!”

Seb: “Uh… Sure! What’s the worst that could happen!?”

Well, I have demonstrated before, I have been known to do things on command and as you may have noticed my attitude towards playing The Rake by Mike R. was pretty gung-ho. After all… What could POSSIBLY go wrong with playing the free indie horror?

Well the answer to that is: “quite a lot actually” and if you are interested in watching me shrieking like a little girl in absolute terror then you ought to check out after the jump!

Our Thoughts On – Super Monday Night Combat

Today’s review comes in the form of another My Thoughts On from Tim and this time he’s reviewing Super Monday Night Combat or Super MNC. This is another MOBA similar to Smite in that it occurs from a third person perspective but again has a few unique things which set it apart from the rest. The game comes to us from Uber Entertainment and looks pretty entertaining. But you’ll have to look at the video to find out our thoughts on the game. It is also available for free download and play here.

Honestly I’d like to say more but I, like a great many people I imagine, am watching my recorded version of the Olympic Opening Ceremony so I” just let the video do the talking for me! Check it out after the jump!

Slender and Vicnity: Warp Reality – Some Ideas for Your Little Minutes


So you’re busy, you’ve got about an hour before you have to deal with some stuff in the real world. That world into which I rarely venture. I understand that some people, for bizarre reasons, don’t have the time to sit down and play six straight hours of Skyrim or Mass Effect 3 and so while I do not understand I suppose I should take pity on them and offer them some solace. Thus here comes the second article in our series of Some Ideas for Your Little Minutes. These articles will be of games (or perhaps betas of games) that we can’t rightfully give full reviews, because we don’t classify them as full games. But importantly these games will not be something you need to sit down and focus on for hours on end!

This time we have two games for your consideration: Slender by Parsec Productions and Vicinity: Warp Reality by students in their final year of theirĀ Diploma in Game and Entertainment Technology at Temasek Polytechnic.

Endweek News – Diablo patches, Updates and Release Dates and not really very much happening

It is unfortunate that I left at the mostĀ inopportuneĀ moment for a holiday… I left two weeks ago right in the middle of E3 and thus I missed out on most of what was going on AND I wasn’t able to post anything about it. I mean I also wasn’t here for last week’s news but that seems less important in comparison to learning about E3. However I am back now and I will once again dispense wisdom and knowledge to the masses every Sunday (or thereabouts) in the form of news of the world of video games! I might even summon the courage to look back a couple of weeks and sift through all the various updates and exciting things from E3 to give you our own highlights of this years expo… But that is just as possible to not happen, we will have to wait and see.

It’s an interesting point as well that with the massive frenzy of news that was E3 the video game world has quietened down a little bit recently as they try and take a few deep breaths to steady themselves. I can understand really, the build-up to E3 followed by the massive out-pouring of news… Well I’m surprised there’s really any news at all already! But let’s see what’s been going on shall we?

Endweek News – Assassin’s Creed lawsuit not quite finished yet, What is this E3 thing?, a new Gears of War and some truly awesome videos!

It is that time of week where once again I delve into the grim and gritty business of video game news. It’s a cut-throat world out there, a game eat game world. A world in which only the fittest and most awesome games survive. And Call of Duty of course (OOoooh! ZING!). But seriously, it’s not really that bad (well not for everyone) and we’ve got some pretty interesting bits and pieces of news to regale you with today. Also I want to make it clear that the above video is indeed sort of relevant to this post as you shall find out later (if you read through this!)

So, what’s new Gamers?

Endweek News – A writer sues Ubisoft, Halo 4 get’s a release date, Trailers for God of War and 0x10c are everywhere and Arkham City content get’s teased

Once again (due to the excuses I lined out last week) I again failed to post any Midweek News this past week. As well as that, this session of Endweek News was hastily researched and thrown together, you’ll just have to forgive me for these things as I have been rather busy. That said most of the news from this past week is actually trailers and other videos, so less reading for you guys. I will say no more on it but jump straight into the news!
