So-Soverlord – Overlord: Fellowship Of Evil Released

Overlord: Fellowship of Evil [official site] is not the new Overlord game I’ve been waiting for. While the original games were Pikmin-y doodads heavy on having your little demonic minion mates do the dirty work while you stood back, this co-op-packing spin off is far more action-RPG-y. Still, charging into battle as Netherghul with your human chums and a few minions backing you up still might be a lark. Maybe?

Dirt Rally Update 0.8 Adds Finland Stages, New Cars

I’d like a future Dirt Rally [official site] update to add the ability to turn your engine off. Codemaster’s have focused their efforts on making cars which feel fun to throw around the game’s muddy rally tracks, but I’m bad at that. Instead I appreciate it for its hills, its snow, the way the headlights reflect off surfaces in the dark, and the forests which stretch off to the horizon. I don’t want to race around the latest update’s new Finland stages; I want to park in them. Watch a trailer below to breathe in the atmosphere for yourself.

Minions, Ho! In Overlord: Fellowship Of Evil Trailer

Minions are big business nowadays, I gather from ignoring all the Despicable Me meme Thinkpieces and Hot Takes scrolling down Twitter. And yet, Codemasters are stepping away from their own brand of minions in Fellowship of Evil [official site]. Their upcoming spin-off of the Pikmin-with-jovial-murder series focuses more on player characters in co-op action.

Minions are still around to do your murderous bidding, mind. Lest people think that they’re gone, Codemasters have dropped a new trailer focused on the minions, showing snippets of gameplay and a few of the great hats (and not-hats) they’ll get to wear. Very important to Overlord, hats.

Safety Car On Track: F1 2015 Released

Codemasters’ Formula 1 racing games hit a bit of a bump in the transition to a new console generation, meaning that here on PC we saw F1 2014 towards the end of the racing season, as ever, but F1 2015 [official site] is arriving a lot earlier this year. Today, in fact. It’s out now (and that’s after a one-month delay. You can buy it and play it right now.

A fair few folks are grumbling about poor performance and crashes, though.

F1 2015 Features Trailer Zooms Into Our Lives

For a game about going really fast, Formula 1 2015 [official site] seems to have taken forever to get here. It’s now just days until the game’s release, and Codemasters are drumming up excitement with a new features trailer. The video exhibits lots of shiny cars, emotionally stirring music, and a reminder that the game that was supposed to be here last month will finally arrive soon.

No Jokes, Please: Dirt Rally Goes To Baumholder

The simultaneous announcement and Steam Early Access launch of Dirt Rally [official site] in April was the kind of surprise I’d thought Big Video Games had become incapable of pulling off – someone always squeals. Content updates are less of a surprise, as that’s sorta what Early Access is all about, but still just as welcome.

Five new cars are now squealing around an all-tarmac German track, offering a different style of race.

The F1 2015 Cars Went So Fast The Game Is Now Delayed

Brrrmmmmmm!

Would you like to see a video of cars going really fast? That’s excellent, because I just happen to have here a video of cars going very, very fast for you to look at.
