A Couple Of Hours With… Dungeon Defenders II

Dungeon Defenders II is a tower defence/action-RPG hybrid, with a very heavy focus on co-op multiplayer, in which your fantasy archetype lays traps and wades into the fray themselves in the hope of defeating waves of marching monsters. Its 'pre-alpha' has been out on Steam Early Access for a short while now, and is proving rather popular. I gave it a very quick look to…

Agents of Smile: An Hour(ish) With Lego Marvel Heroes

Mr Fantastic, most boring of all Marvel superheroes, has just turned into an enormous pair of bolt cutters in order to let Captain America through. Not so boring now eh, Reed? The Hulk is tidying up New York with a dustpan and brush. Iron Man is worried that all of this is cutting into his hot tub time. Controlling Spider-Man is just like I've wished…

An Hour With UFO Online’s Beta: Choose You Faction

UFO Online is a free to play, browser-based turn-based strategy game from Gamigo, and it's heavily based on both X-COM and XCOM. It's in open beta now. I tried to play it. It's enemies's turn! I do love me a shonkily-translated game, and whatever happened while gamingo's browser-based X-COMlike UFO Online was being transformed from German to English, the net result is that it reads…

An Hour With… King Arthur II

The masterful Mr Stone is currently tackling the full-fat Wot I Think for Neocore and Paradox's 'roleplaying wargame' King Arthur II, but curiosity and the desire for a quick break from pretending to be a football manager guided me to have a very quick nose at it myself today. I knew almost nothing of it going in, so I wasn't expecting the roleplaying element to…

An Hour With… Blur

Well, more like three hours. Make of that what you will. Particularly if it's "Alec hasn't had the internet for several weeks so being able to play games again is probably over-exciting him." So: figured I'd take a look at Bizarre Creations' powerup-infused racer Blur, which seemed (on console at least) a little overshadowed in May by redemptive cowboys and men who were awake. On…

An Hour With: Monkey Island 2 Special Edition

The second special edition complete re-mastering of the Monkey Island games came out last week, and I thought since we're not going to be Wot I Thinking it, it'd be worth having a quick look at and seeing how seaworthy this once-flagship of the genre is with its new lick of paint. Because... well, I'll go out on a limb here and say that, for…

An Hour With… Alpha Protocol

We had hoped to bring your our Alpha Protocol WIT by now, but a series of unfortunate circumstances means that it's much delayed. You might even have your own Thoughts to Wot below. So here is a description of the first hour or two, which isn't a very pretty sight. I'm absolutely sure things much improve after this, especially now I have the game in…

An Hour With: Crysis

I'm playing dilettante this weekend, dabbling with some of the bigger games of the moment which I haven't had a chance to play properly yet. Some of them are on Televisual Pleasure Boxes (Mario Galaxy and Assassin's Creed) but one's home is on the Personal Thinking Machines whose progress we like to chart at Rock, Paper, Shotgun. It's Crysis. Which is a case where I'm…

An Hour With: The Witcher

Something new I thought I'd try. Kind of inspired by ever-lovin' Kyle Orland's A Game For Lunch, basically, it's a first impressions based solely on the first hour of a game. One hour, no more. Clearly, this isn't a real review or anything, just a collection of initial impressions. And clearly this serves the dual purpose of creating a thread for people who have played…
