Warhammer 40,000: Regicide Gameplay Trailer — Violence is King

Chess is a violent, violent game. Don’t let those small innocent plastic or wooden pieces fool you. Each pawn that is sacrificed or gambited away represents thousands and thousands of men slaughtered in the defense of the king. It’s a cruel world. Especially the way I play chess, no one is spared. It’s a game… Read More »

Stranded Deep — Real Castaway Survival Game?

The Hum Story Introduction Trailer — This game will kill people

The Hum might just kill me.  Not in-game, but for real.  The survival horror game will have Oculus Rift support, and the virtual reality of a rapture-like apocalypse with creepy aliens lurking in the dark….that’s just too much.  I nearly had a heart attack playing Turok on N64 on a 13-inch TV.  A raptor would… Read More »

Wargame Red Dragon Launch Trailer – A land, air…and sea war in Asia! Get Involved!

A full-scale war in Asia would be a complete disaster.  Give me the Admiral Akbar Award for stating the obvious (“It’s a Trap!”) because here’s the obvious result of total war in Asia: millions dead, more displaced, and billions affected as several generations face chaos, recession and a world without cool gadgets.  That’s why Wargame… Read More »
