Brigador All Saints update adds horns and more

My Fiat Punto might not be an armoured, rocket launcher wielding machine of death, mayhem and destruction - but it was unambiguously superior to the vehicles from isometric mech game Brigador in one key respect. Before the latest Brigador update, only my Fiat was capable of alerting everyone nearby to my presence/annoyance with an obnoxious beeping sound. That's all changed with the the All Saints…

Robots In The Skies: Project HON

Project HON is a game about mechs dropping out of the sky to have a block party. In the trailer below, you'll see one plucky fellow rollerblading along the seafront and two clumsy chaps taking part in a breakdance competition, which takes a turn for the worse when they accidentally clobber one another with their giant flailing feet and fists. Oops! The party doesn't stop…

Hit The Mechs: Fields Of War

Currently in beta, Fields of War is "a massive multiplayer third-person-shooter focused on large scale battles, territory control, skill and most importantly team play." When I read that description, I expected the video to contain tiny computer men running around and shooting at one another but the synopsis conceals the game's trump card. The tiny computer men are concealed within mechs, with up to a…
