The Longest Day: 24 Hours In White Gold

White Gold: War In Paradise, aka Xenus 2, aka Boiling Point 2 is the free-roaming FPS-RPG we’ve been meaning to take a closer look at for ages. A sequel to the famously mad, broken and ambitious Boiling Point (of which even the patch notes are comedy gold) from original Kiev-based developers Deep Shadows! What could be more exciting? What, indeed. An account of my first…

Precursors review

This seems like an appropriate way to start the year. Deep Shadows' FPS/RPG space-adventure Precursors was released to Russian-language markets just over a year ago, and recently it's been playable in English by modding the Russian version. Now, however, that modded version seems to have been released via GamersGate, making an English version commercially available. If you've played Deep Shadows' previous open-world offering, Boiling Point,…

White Gold: Nonsense Gaming At Its Finest

Here's a new video for the sequel to the infamous Boiling Point. The video's in Russian, but still does an excellent job of demonstrating the a) ambition and b) madness of Deep Shadows' open-world FPS. Why does he shoot that fisherman?

PCG: Precursors preview

I see that the good ship C&VG has reprinted my short preview of Precursors from PC Gamer. It's from my recent trip to visit Deep "Boiling Point" Shadows, and - since it's quite short - I'm only really able to give a general over-view of it. I do say things like this though, as I'm a sucker for contextualising. "You could call it the Mass…

PCG: White Gold Preview

I suspect I may have missed this one if RPG watch hadn't noticed C&VG had republished my PC Gamer preview of White Gold online. White Gold is basically, Boiling Point 2. You'll remember Boiling Point for being a bit buggy on release. Now, looking at the comments thread, they hit an interesting point. That I went on about Boiling Point having a load of bugs.…

Fixed: Size Of The Moon

I've been meaning to write about this for a while, because it just tickles me pink. If you were paying attention to PC gaming in 2005 then you'll probably remember Deep Shadows' spectacularly open-ended FPS, Boiling Point. It remains one of my favourite games of all time, partly because it was an astonishingly ambitious game of the kind I can't seem to get enough of,…

Graphicsability High. What about Gameplayability?

While you may not realise it from reading this blog, there are other PC shooters other than Bioshock we give a damn about. No, really. Firstly, Eurogamer head off to Germany to actually speak at length to the Crytek guys about their forthcoming Crysis, including getting hands on with the multiplayer section (Deathmatch sounds much as you'd expect, but the Power Struggle seems an interesting…
