Superhero action-RPGs Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 1 & 2 removed from sale

While not the greatest of games to begin with, and reportedly wonky at launch, the Marvel: Ultimate Alliance series of superhero action-RPGs is no longer available on Steam, most likely due to licensing deals expiring and changing hands. While store pages for the two are still up, the Activision-published dynamic duo can no longer be bought or searched for on Steam.

Zap! Marvel: Ultimate Alliance Patched, DLC Coming Free

For a £32 re-release of a decade-old game, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance was in a right sorry state when the minimally-revamped version hit Steam in July, and its sequel wasn't in much better shape. MUA didn't recognise Xbox controller buttons correctly, sound crackled, and none of the first game's DLC characters were included. For £30, I'd expect proper definitive editions of the superhero action-RPGs. Heck, I'd…

Oof! Marvel: Ultimate Alliance Re-Releases Are Messes

If you're going to re-release a decade-old game as new for £32, it had better be one heck of a revamp. For £32, I'm talking new kitchen, new bathroom, swept chimneys, and at least making sure the dang game works properly.

Chime review

Chime has come from the land of not-PC to the land of PC, via Steam with proper geek-power Still-Alive to round off its fine line up of bald techno-men (and Philip Glass). So, with controller abandoned and mouse held mightily in my paw, I have a look at this music-adorned charity-infused puzzler and tell you Wot I think...

Chime On Steam And We Have Some Codes

UPDATE: Codes sent out! Thanks for entering. Codes for you! But only ten. We're going to have to devise some manner of competition to distribute them in a useful way. Head below the click for details on that. But what is Chime? Well it's a musical puzzle game where the levels are set to soundtracks by Orbital's Phil Hartnoll, Moby, Philip Glass, Markus Schulz and…

Portal’s Still Alive In Chime

So as we previously mentioned Zoe Mode are bringing out their charity-helping puzzle Chime on Steam, and it's now available to preorder. But they've also tuned it to their new target audience, because the additional level on PC is Still Alive, the track from the end of Portal, written by Jonathan Coulton and performed by Ellen McLain. You can see how that works as a…

Put A Ring On It: Chime

There's a charity-based theme to my posts today, it seems. You know Chime? Zoe Mode-developed 360 casual music-based puzzle game developed pro bono for the OneBigGame (meaning some money goes to Save the Children and the Starlight Children's Foundation)? Features music by Philip Glass, Orbital, Moby and other folks? Always reminded me of Qix with a bit of a beat? Quite good, apparently? Anyway, it's…
