Feature: Whale Tale

Windforge review

Windforge is an action adventure with a broadly familiar frame: like Starbound and Terraria it's a 2D explora-ma-jig in a wholly destructible world, though Starbound's futurism and Terraria's hyper-nonsense has been replaced with a Verne-esque tale of flying whales and balloon-based battles in the sky. The question is: did it fulfill its porpoise, or did it make me blubber and wail? Here's Wot I Think.

Impressions: LOTR War In The North

Snowblind's orc-biffer was released in the US yesterday and is cruelly and pointlessly withheld from the UK until November 25th. Nonetheless, a couple of weeks ago I had a crack at a level from late in the game, in addition to more recently trying the demo on OnLive. So here's a quick primer on what to expect from the hacky-slashy fantasy game. I'll try not…

Middle-Earth Onlive: LOTR War In The North

Wondering whether to buy Lord of the Rings: War in the North? Depending on where you are in the world, you may have that option right now (US), on the 9th of November (EU) or in the distant future of the 25th of November (UK). All sorts of things can aid a purchasing decision, primary among them being our wise words, but few would argue…

Do You Remember LotR: War In The North?

In anticipation of its release at the beginning of November (though apparently the end of November for us UK folk), Snowblind have released three new trailers for action RPG Lord of the Rings: War In The North. Each trailer focuses on a different hero: a dwarf champion, an elf lore-master and a human ranger. I always think of elves as ranging, so I was a…

I Forgot About LoTR: War In The North

Okay, I have to admit that despite our last headline for this game being "Don’t Forget About LotR: War In The North", I had forgotten about it. I am the worst. But wait! There's a new developer diary for Snowblind's hack and/or slash adventure game, which reminded me, and which you can see below. The devs talk about the fun they're having making giant metal…

Don’t Forget About LotR: War In The North

I mean it! It would be a tradgedy if you forgot that Lord of the Rings: War In The North exists, because it looks like it might be alright? Who knows. As we can see in the following trailer, the co-operative action game is certainly looking co-operative and actiony. There's also a new website, where you can read that players will be able to "bloody…

Lord of The Rings: War in the North

Going through the Gamecom 2010 trailers, I noticed Lord of the Rings: War In the North, by console Action-RPG specialists Snowblind (Including My Delightful Fiance and Jim's Delightful Girlfriend's favoured Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance). And it's on the PC. This is, unless I'm very mistaken, the first time they've brought one of their games onto the PC, which means it's time to raise a glass…
