Cool Guys Don’t Look At Explosions: Mad Max Reprise

Sometimes you just need to take a lot of screenshots of a game's character ignoring the giant explosions going on behind him. We did this for Just Cause 2, and it seems that it's happening all over again with Mad Max. So, for your viewing pleasure, here's Max nonchalantly not looking at shit blowing up from a distance that really ought to be frying his…

Interns And Explosions: Kerbal Space Program’s Latest

You might think yourself a real Top Gun, the next Dan Dare, or a veritable Buck Rogers. Kerbal Space Program has been out long enough for you, oh mighty pilot, to master space flight and possibly get a bit cocky. Don't worry, the latest update has added new things to cock up. Your space centre is destructible now, for starters. It also bulks out the…

Just Cause 2 Ignoro Gallery, Just ‘Cause

I've been replaying Just Cause 2 in my spare time of late. I remember my absolutely loving it, and then finding the ludicrous fun was spoiled by the difficulty ramping up far too far, and the game getting in the way of itself. So thinking it would be fun to muck around with it some more, this time I set things to Casual and began…

Are We Excited About Mercenaries 2?

Pandemic Studios' latest ludo-spawn, Mercenaries 2, is looking mighty explody. They've just released some new game footage with detailed developer-commentary over the top, which you can see beyond the click. The most sensible thing in there is also one of the more minor features, "vehicle disguise", which makes so much sense, and yet breaks the logic of most action games ever. I'm sure the idea…

World In Conflict Demo

The demo for World In Conflict has arrived, and it includes single player, skirmish, and multiplayer elements. You can download it here, at a beastly 1.2gb. World In Conflict is the direct descendant of my favourite RTS, also by Massive Entertainment, Ground Control. You can download that ancient sci-fi strategy from here, and if you do you'll see that it still stands up today. The…

10.1 ways to leave your lover

Stupid - releasing a version of DirectX (number 10, if you're counting) that doesn't work with Windowses other than Vista, and failing to provide any real reason why this should be so. Stupider - Not having any games that show what DirectX10 is capable of over half a year on from Vista's launch, compounding the many reasons not to invest in the troubled new operating…

Sky Biff

Like almost everyone I know I've spent too many hours capturing large red or white circles in the World In Conflict Beta. There's something particularly compulsive about trying to hold a small area on your own, while the rest of your team mills about across the battlefield, attacking the enemy without rhyme or reason. I particularly like playing as infantry and fortifying a position as…

Shoot You, Sir

It's been a while since an online first-person shooter has consumed all of my attention. That's probably going to change. There are two reasons for this. One is called Enemy Territory: Quake Wars and the other is called Unreal Tournament 3. Quake Wars will be the first of these we'll be getting stuck into later this year. No confirmed release date, but the ongoing private…

Living in the Shadow of a DX10 Mushroom Cloud

I'm just glad I can finally talk about this without breaking an NDA or eight. Massive have launched their open beta of their Cold War RTS, World in Conflict. I was playing in the closed beta, and biting my tongue to avoid just lobbing an enormous essay up on my blog about why I think it's perhaps potentially the most interesting RTS of the year.…
