Impressions – Warhammer 40,000: Storm of Vengeance

By Alec Meer on March 10th, 2014.

Warhammer 40,000: Storm of Vengeance is a forthcoming ‘lane strategy game’ based on Games Workshop’s foremost sci-fi setting. It’s due out on March 27th, and I’ve been playing some preview code ahead of that. What follows are initial thoughts on that time, as I have not yet played all of the game, or its finished form.

Orcs vs Marinesies: Warhammer 40,000 Storm of Vengeance

By Alec Meer on February 25th, 2014.

My ears will always prick at news of a new Warhammer 40,000 game. One day, The Dream Game will happen. One day. This one I’m can’t quite draw a bead on, though. Is it a kind of casual moba? Or is it more Plants vs Zombies with Games Workshop dudes in? I suspect more the latter (and with an added multiplayer mode), but we’ll find out when Eutechnyx’s ‘lane strategy game’ Warhammer 40,000: Storm of Vengeance launches at the end of next month. Turn the dread eye of the Imperium towards the below trailer to see if you can get a clear sense of what this mobile-focused-but-also-on-PC dude-marching game is going to feel like.

Get In Lane: Warhammer 40K Storm Of Vengeance Revealed

By John Walker on December 2nd, 2013.

Some concept art.

I can’t keep up with you young people and your slogans. While you’re all hipping on your slideboards, downing an alcoholic milkshake, and playing TV games on your Playboys, I’m sat here wondering what the bloody hell a “lane strategy game” is. For that is how Eutechnyx describes their freshly announced Warhammer game, Storm Of Vengeance.

The Oval Office: Nascar – The Game 2013

By Adam Smith on June 18th, 2013.

When I was a small boy, I was very excited about the idea of having my own car. Games had taught me that driving was fun*, whether through the twisting roads of Lotus III, across the ramshackle rollercoasters of Stunt Car Racer, or in the violent competition of Fatal Racing. Then my parents bought me a Nascar game and everything changed. The graphics blew my Spiderman socks off but the tracks didn’t have any unexpected curves, loops or jumps. That’s why I spent most of my time with the game driving the wrong way, trying to cause massive collisions and pileups. I haven’t played a Nascar game since and the impending arrival of Eutechnyx’ latest on July 24th probably won’t change that, but perhaps you are a fan of cars wot go round and round?

Of Bikes And Men: Deep Silver’s Ride To Hell Resurfaces

By Nathan Grayson on April 5th, 2013.

Unsurprisingly, the brand new CG trailer looks absolutely nothing like this.

Deep Silver’s a pretty cool company, except when it’s super, super not. On one hand, their devil-may-care approach to, well, existing lends itself quite well to the Saints Row series, which they recently salvaged from THQ’s twisted, Darksiders-spattered wreckage. But, on the other, you might remember Dead Island’s bust of, you know, a female bust, disgustingly dismembered because shock value or something. Ride To Hell‘s sudden reappearance after its 2008 debut, then, leaves me wondering if it’s time to be all revved up or completely revolted. I mean, this new CG trailer looks almost like a grindhouse-y biker-themed Saints Row (correct reaction to these words: yesssssssssss), but the insanity’s toned down and stripper-laden enough to feel a bit gross. Personally, I need to see more before making any definitive judgments. For now, though, all we’ve got to go on is after the break.

It’s Time For An Auto Club Revolution (Beta)

By Adam Smith on March 30th, 2012.

pretty drifty

There used to be a cafe down the road from me called the Automatic Cafe, which transformed into the Automatic Lounge in the evening when drinks began to flow and musicians began to muse. Maybe even later, when the beat took hold and bodies began to shuffle toward a dance floor, it became the Automatic Club. Whether that’s the case or not, Auto Club Revolution aims to be a social hub, being both a cars wot go fast simulation, and a cars wot go fast collection and modification suite. Now in open beta, the community aspect of this particular Revolution seems as important as the actual driving bits. The trailer below has more menus than motoring.

Auto Club Revolution Beta From 25th

By Jim Rossignol on July 19th, 2011.

Car!
To my perception, “Auto Club Revolution” sounds like some kind of political movement whereby wrongdoers and malcontents are followed by implacable robots and automatically beaten about the head with a length of something heavy whenever they act for the worse. Back on the sober roads of reality, it is actually a game about shiny cars wot go fast. Auto Club Revolution, that’s the website. That is where you apparently have limited time to sign up to the closed beta which begins on the 25th of this month.
