Hack And Class: Bound By Flame Gets Fighty

I don't know how to feel about Bound By Flame. I mean, it looks spectacularly competent in all ways, which I realize is something of an oxymoron. Let me explain: it's swollen - nearly pregnant - with pomp and bombast, but I can't really see what makes it truly special or standout. Developer Spiders' previous somewhat comically titled role-player, Mars: War Logs, was the same…

Fire And Slice: Bound By Flame

It's going to be very hard for a big ol' fantasy RPG to get my attention while not being The Witcher 3. From the developer of the wooden War Logs of Mars, Bound By Flame is the tale of a mercenary possessed by a flame demon. You are that mercenary! Or maybe you're the flame demon. That would be a decent twist actually, explaining away…

Less Wooden: War Logs Improves Voice Acting

Spiders send word that their action RPG War Logs - which John gave a long, hard stare a while back - has had new English-language localisation to improve the shonky voice-acting that the game suffered on released. They explain: "The actual game was thoroughly tested and released with very few bugs on PC, but unfortunately the procedures for the audio and text QA failed and…

Mars From Spiders: Mars War Logs Out Now

Yes, that's an attempt at a David Bowie reference couched in, like, five other references. Because Mars War Logs comes from a company called Spiders, you see, and Bowie's band was called... and then I switched around the stuff to mean... and anyway. My job is really hard sometimes, everyone. But yes, Mars from the videogame studio Spiders (which I can neither confirm nor deny…

It’s Noisy On Mars – New Mars: War Logs Trailer

An important lesson about background music can be learned from the most recent Mars: War Logs (yes, they're sticking with "War Logs") trailer. What should have been an overview of the promising-looking RPG turns into an ear-straining confusion as you try to pick out the voice from the strumming music and shouty game noise. Which is a bit silly of them, because it's looking rather…

Ringed By Fire: Bound By Flame

While Mars: War Logs prepares to lumber into view, news reaches us today that Spiders Studio are also working on a larger project, Bound By Flame, an "action/role-playing game [that] lets you play a mercenary possessed by a flame demon in an ambitious Dark Fantasy universe". The press release doesn't specify whether the real-time combat can be paused but the words 'Dark Fantasy' followed by…

Deus Rage Effect – Mars: War Logs Mixes Cyberpunk, Red

Mars: War Logs. Wars: Lar Mogs. Lars: Mor Wags. Yes, Mars: War Logs' name may be easily transmutable into extremely silly sounding phrases (I like the last one because it makes me think of some upper-class so-and-so commanding their dog, Lars, to wag its tail better), but it actually looks quite intriguing as far as Captain Commando McSpaceBiff adventures go. In short, Lars: War Mogs…
