Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr v2.0 overhauls the wonky action RPG

Technically launched a few days ago, Neocore only just now released their official video breakdown of Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr's v2.0 overhaul patch. While Martyr (I will use its full title no more than twice) nailed that Warhammer 40k look and sound, it fell short as a hack n' slash lootfest. This mega-patch rewires the game's guts to something a little more Diablo-like, with…

In the grim darkness of 2019, you can add green footprints to Warhammer 40K games for £1.50

While flailing helplessly through the ocean of Steam new releases today, I grabbed for a familiar shoreline to catch my breath. It was DLC for so-so Games Workshoppy action-RPG Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr, which I had temporarily mistaken for the rather good turn-based strategy thinger Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus. Before I steeled myself for another dive into those infinite waters, I clicked through, mildly curious…

The 100 best-selling games on Steam in 2018 so far

We've just passed the half-way point of 2018, so Ian Gatekeeper and all his fabulously wealthy chums over at Valve have revealed which hundred games have sold best on Steam over the past six months. It's a list dominated by pre-2018 names, to be frank, a great many of which you'll be expected, but there are a few surprises in there. 2018 releases Jurassic World…

"Miss, Miss, it's so sunny, can we have Steam Charts on the field?" "NO. Sit down and write about popular PC games in this oppressively hot room until the DAY YOU DIE."

Warhammer 40k: Inquisitor – Martyr stomps angrily out of early access

In the grim future of the 2010s, there are only Warhammer games. One every other week, it seems, thanks to Games Workshop's new licensing structure being an all-you-can-eat IP buffet. Not that I'm complaining - while there's been some forgettable games, there's no shortage of solid fun in there too. If nothing else, NeocoreGames' Warhammer 40k: Inquisitor -Martyr looks the part. This grimdark action-RPG has…

In the grim darkness of the 21st century, there are only bad choices about game delays

Today's Gaming Drama concerns the ever-contentious matter of videogame crunch, i.e. making staff massively overwork during the final months of development in order to meet a pre-determined release date. In the dock is Games Workshoppy action-RPG Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr, whose developers yesterday appeared to baldly claim they would be crunching like billy-o as a result of a delay to its PC version's escape…

Warhammer 40K: Inquisitor delayed into June

You have a little extra time to polish your crotchskull up nice and shiny, as NeocoreGames have announced that Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr will not make its planned May 11th launch and will instead arrive on June 5th. The 40K action-RPG from the studio behind the Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing games is being held up on PC by problems with the console versions…

Warhammer 40k Inquisitor ARPG adds a story at last

1) Burn Heretics 2) one of your own turns out to be a Heretic 3) burn them. Such is the traditional Warhammer 40,000 videogame plot. It's too soon to know if Warhammer 40,000 Diablolike Inquisitor - Martyr will ultimately sing that age-old tune too, but at least it's now made its first moves into having a story. Its first six months in early access were…

Feature: Clunk click, every trip

Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr is as clunky as its name

It's hard to imagine a game clunkier than Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr [official site]. Even the name is a lumpen boulder. (We'll call it "Martyr" for our sanity's sake.) This doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad game - there's probably something decent enough behind it all - just the clunkiest festival of clunk since Professor David Clunkington invented his Clunkatron 3000.

The Warhammer 40K: Inquisitor ARPG Is Very Explodey

Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr, the action RPG from the folk behind the Van Helsing hacker-slashers, has been quiet for the best part of a year, presumably because the horrifying punctuation of its title caused a directory error which rendered all its files inaccessible. The heretic-burning Diablolike just broke cover anew, offering us decent insight into what, yes, looks very much like an action-RPG in…

Warhammer 40k: Inquisitor – Martyr Announced

In the grim, dark future, there is only war, but in the grim, sunny present we... well, Warhammer 40k games haven't taken over everything just yet. Games Workshop are preparing to launch an assault on another genre, though, announcing an action-RPG with the lengthy title of mouthy title of Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr [official site]. NeocoreGames, them lot behind the Incredible Adventures of Van…
