XCOM Enemy Unknown: Engage Project X – I’ve been really enjoying the remake of XCOM since its release a few months back and one of the best parts is that you can customise and rename your squad of alien fighters….but sometimes that doesn’t always go that well, here’s a story of how to deal with the loss of an XCOM veteran.
How To Choose The Perfect Board Game – if like me you’re interested in getting into modern board games, but don’t know where to start, then this might help you make a decision based on who you are and what you like.
Modder Creates The World’s Coolest Iron Man Video Game (Inside Grand Theft Auto) – the Iron Man films are really cool, if ever a film deserved a decent video game, it was this franchise, but until then we’ll have to make do with this GTA 4 mod.
Sweet Mother Of Dragons, Get A Load Of King’s Landing Recreated In Minecraft – I’ve never really done a great deal with Minecraft, the closest was probably watching videos like this “First Day Quick Start Guide video”, but it’s one of those sandbox games that I love that it exists, especially when people use it to create such impressive things, it’s almost a work of digital art.
Let’s Reboot…The Secret of Monkey Island – I was a huge fan of the ‘point and click’ adventure games back when I was a kid, particularly the Lucasarts ones, so reading this article about rebooting the franchise leaves me with mixed feelings. We’ve seen reboots can be hit or miss when it comes to films, so I’d be cautious wanting this, even though PC Gamer’s article makes some good points. Although, perhaps the best of both worlds would be for the original creator; Ron Gilbert to make another Monkey Island in the series (which he isn’t because Disney now owns the series), but he has outlined his vision of what a new Monkey Island game would be like…if that happened…which it isn’t.
