Battalion 1944 revamps and fixes much in ‘major’ update

"TOTAL REWORK," declares a trailer for Battalion 1944's new free update. "THE COMMUNITY HAS BEEN HEARD." Bulkhead Interactive's World War 2 multiplayer FPS got off to a rocky start in early access, see. Our Alec admired what he played, even if his clicking finger has grown slow and preoccupied in his old age, but he did note a number of problems - and players did…

Battalion 1944: a hardcore hybrid of noughties COD and Counter-Strike, with teething troubles

"I wonder how long it will be before I get even a single kill in Battalion 1944", I whinged at my colleagues earlier. I had plenty of time to whinge, because I was, on average, getting insta-killed within 10 seconds of starting a round, then having to wait 50 seconds before the next one started, at which point I would respawn. The more capable players,…

Battalion 1944 is built on a different kind of historical research

Battalion 1944 [official site] blindsided me. I played a few rounds last week at developer Bulkhead's studio in Derby and consistently came last in the leaderboards at the end of our team deathmatch battles. That's partly because I'm not the best FPS player in the North West, let alone the world, and it's partly because I was playing with the people who made the game.…

Battalion 1944 is bringing the fight to EGX Rezzed

Battalion 1944 [official site] managed to get onto my good side within seconds of poring over the website for details. It does that by dispensing with buffs and unlocks, in an attempt to deliver a purely skill-based multiplayer shooter. It looks cracking too, with tight maps based on actual WWII locations. The proof, as ever, will be in the pudding though, and you'll be able…

The Turing Test review

Oh my goodness, if The Turing Test [official site] could have existed in a world that had never seen Portal nor The Talos Principle, it would be lauded, famous beyond belief. Then again, in a world without Portal and The Talos Principle, Bulkhead Interactive would never have made The Turing Test, so it’s a little academic. As it is, we’ve got here an often smart,…

The Turing Test Now Available For Closer Examination

We are all familiar with the Turing Test, in which a computer and a man must engage in a freestyle rap battle to determine which one is “thinking”. But there’s also a videogame of the same name, which is out today. The Turing Test [official site] is a first-person puzzler set in a research base on Europa, in which you play astronaut Eva Turing as…

The Turing Test Gets Release Date, Asks Big Questions

It's hard not to watch the latest trailer for The Turing Test [official site] and see all the stark parallels between Portal and The Talos Principle. A science fiction first-person game where a robot sidekick guides you through various chambers full of puzzles with themes of transhumanism? Still, despite those on-the-sleeve inspirations, I can't help but feel drawn in by The Turing Test's atmosphere and…

First-Person Puzzling On Jupiter’s Moon: The Turing Test

While much of E3 is dedicated to the big guns, it's always nice to see what the little guys have up their sleeves too - like The Turing Test [official site]. It's a first-person sci-fi puzzle game from Pneuma: Breath of Life developers Bulkhead Interactive, and echoes the likes of The Talos Principle and Portal. I had a wee bash of it at Rezzed earlier…
