Premature Evaluation: PixArk

Premature Evaluation is the weekly column in which we explore the wilds of early access. This week, Fraser's lost in PixArk, the Minecraft-inspired Ark: Survival Evolved spin-off. It's colourful, whimsical and it's made him extremely grumpy. PixArk feels like the result of an algorithm designed to pick bits from popular games and Frankenstein them into something new.

Ark: Survival Evolved becomes a Minecraftbut in PixArk

History, scholars agree, is a washing machine on a spin cycle with a brick inside: as it bounces round and round, the brick will often return to the same point but is slightly changed by an entropy that eventually will violently shake the machine to pieces then our ma will give us a right skelping for copying YouTube videos. The cycle returns to a familiar…

Kung-Fu Kidnapping: Age Of Wushu Now Live

Woohoo, it's Wushu! Excellent, I have fulfilled my dumb joke quota in the first line. Now then, come reverently kneel in the dojos of intrigue. Age of Wushu, you see, might look like a typical MMO with high-flying wuxian trappings, but - at least, on paper - it actually sounds far more daring than that. Case in point: kidnapping. When you log off, your character…

Wu-woo: Age Of Wushu Brings F2P Wuxia

Those handsome chaps at Massively have scooped the announcement of Snail Games USA's next free-to-play MMO, which is the handsome-looking Age Of Wushu. The game's flag-waving feature set all derives from it being based on wuxia-type fictions, which means the characters are capable of absurd Kung Fu movie actions, such as being able to run on the surface of water. It also has a few…
