Laser League review

I can tell Laser League is great because of the noises I make while I’m playing it. There’s my giggling, when I manage to weave my way through an improbably dense field of laser-based death. There’s my sharp intake of breath when I watch a teammate do the same, perhaps coming within a hair’s breadth of reviving me before being shunted away by an opposing…

Do A Bodacious Grind In OlliOlli2, Out Today

Because I know what a rad bunch of dudes, dudettes and dudeys you are, I bring news of the release of OlliOlli 2 [official site] on PC. Fully titled 'Welcome to Olliwood' it's the follow-up to 2014's hottest PC skateboarding sim that let you kick-flip on a dinosaur's back. This one features just as many mad locations and odd places to grind, with a bunch…

Not A Hero review

If Hotline Miami had come into being during a late night session in an British pub, it would probably have emerged into the light looking quite a lot like Not a Hero [official site]. Although its action is side-on rather than topdown, the content is similar – surrealist sprees of violence involving an odd crew of protagonists and countless stereotypical gangland denizens. It's from the…

Not Just Yet: Not A Hero Gets Delayed A Week

Bad news, to my fellow PC Brethren who've had their eyes and hearts clocked to May 7th as the release date for Not A Hero [official website], that side-on shooter from the dudes behind OlliOlli. You're going to have to wait exactly seven additional days before you see that baby, which granted isn't much of a wait. Just think of all the things you can…

Side-On Slide-O-Cover Shooter Not A Hero Gets A Demo

The release of a demo for Not A Hero [official site] is wrapped up in a marketing campaign with a load of guff about UK politics and Nigel Farage and immigrants and fake hackings but look, let's ignore all that. It's a side-on shooter where you can duck into cover and slide and murder men in cool ways, made by OlliOlli folks Roll7, so let's…

Winning The Election One Bullet At A Time: Not A Hero

As anthropomorphic animals go, Not A Hero's [official site] giant time-traveling purple mayoral candidate BunnyLord (no prizes for guessing the species of this guy) is up there with the best of them. His cover-hiding, gun-toting campaign manager, aka you, is a regular old human tasked with taking a tough stance on crime as part of the election run. "Tough stance" here meaning "extreme Hotline Miami-style…

Skate Or Dinosaur: OlliOlli Grinding PC Next Week

OlliOlli is a skating game in which you can grind a dinosaur. And a tank in wartime. And a Japanese mech's beam saber. And... well, you get the idea. The soundtrack also contains liberal helpings of jazz, apparently. Or maybe that's just a joke on the game's Steam page. I don't know. Point is, OlliOlli looks zany as all get-out, which is exactly what I…

Coverage: Not A Hero Announced

London lot Roll7's side-on shooter Not A Hero was given a formal announcement and grand unveiling at EGX Rezzed this weekend, perhaps not coincidentally opposite the Hotline Miami 2 booth. Oh, but to compare the two would be lazy. See, while Not A Hero is a point-scoring, man-murdering, pixel-bleeding, die/restart run and gun game, it's also a cover shooter. Having had a bash myself, I'd…

Board To Death: OlliOlli Coming To PC

I haven't played a skating game since the last Tony Hawk that was actually a skating game rather than a modern American soap opera. The plot synopsis for a skating game should never be more than a thousand words long and it certainly shouldn't contain sentences like this: "Gaining their approval, he is let into the ranch, and meets the leader of the group, Iggy…
