Hunger1

Tarsier Studios, the team responsible for LittleBigPlanet Vita has announced a new IP called Hunger; a PS4 exclusive third-person 3D action-adventure game featuring stealth and exploration.

Announced on the studio’s website, Tarsier received funding for the project from Nordic Game Program, also responsible for funding Max and the Magic Marker and the critically acclaimed Limbo.

The official synopsis states:

“A nine-year old girl named Six is kidnapped from her home and taken to work in The Maw – a surreal underwater resort catering to the whims of the powerful elite. When an unexpected twist of fate offers her a chance at freedom, Six takes a journey through the bizarre and unpredictable world of The Maw, and catches a glimpse at the corrupt heart of modern happiness.”

Tarsier Studios are of course very grateful for NGP’s funding. “This is not only a huge vote of confidence from the Nordic Game Program expert group,” explains CEO Ola Holmdahl. “The grant enables us to explore an idea we are deeply passionate about. Hunger holds fantastic potential, and our job now is to harness that promise into a great experience.”

The concept sounds intriguing and I personally will be keeping an eye out for this title. So keep your eyes for more info as more is revealed.

Steam Greenlight News: A Unique RTS Emerges Called The Mims: Beginning

The Mims Beginning 2

On Steam Greenlight (as well as the lesser known Thunder Clap social awareness booster) today is a new title being crowdfunded with a $5,500 budget (being raised over the next 47 days) on IndieGoGo and an impressively well put together pitch for gamers to digest while waiting for the full release. The title is already 18 months in development and has come very far including being playable internally for testing and visibly publicly in the video at the bottom of this article (gameplay, story, and dev diary all in one).

The Mims: Beginning is the game we’ve been talking about and is a 3D Real-Time Strategy / Adventure Game with humor involved, and yet it is more than that. On other planets the player takes the role of a leader helping colonists to expand and defend themselves in an area that was not originally their own. Fast reaction time and thoughtful moves are required though the game will serve both Adventure game audience as well as RTS vets.

With a mix of Strategy elements like building structures and commanding units as well as Adventure features like automated artificial intelligence and story-driven directives, The Mims: Beginning is already well underway. Take a look at the video below and see for yourself what the team at Squatting Penguins has put together so far.

Ex-Mythic Employee Pleads To EA Release Offline Mode For Warhammer Online Despite It Having “No Gameplay Of Any Kind”

Warhammer Offline

Recently Warhammer Online took its place among the deceased MMORPG games never to be seen again… until… Andrew Meggs (formerly of Mythic and now the co-founder for City State Entertainment) has revealed that the game has an offline mode which was never made available to the public. In a complicated sort of blog post the developer who worked on Warhammer Online, before EA ended up having to pull the plug on it recently, describes an offline mode which featured “no gameplay of any kind” but instead served as a 3D Interactive Tech Demo of the Warhammer Online world and a selection of its assets.

Will EA ever release such a thing? What is the potential for the modding community to do this for them? Time will tell, but here’s a link to the original Blog Post from Andrew making his plea to EA in the first place.

Speaking of Warhammer, we’ll be giving away 4 copies of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War to some lucky winners so check back at our Giveaway Page for more details on the contest as we announce it alongside our separate and even larger XMAS 2013 Steam Giveaway.

Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers Review

Air Conflict Pacific Carriers

Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers is a flight combat simulator showcasing dogfights and missions taking place during the second World War and specifically the Pacific as players get the option to play as the Japanese Imperial Navy or the U.S. Navy. The game was originally released in the United Kingdom on multiple platforms but has recently been re-released in North America and serves as a PlayStation 3 exclusive complete with 3DTV and PlayStation Move support.

Story, Gameplay, ControlsFor History buffs or just lovers of the World War II experience in video games, the context and plot-lines of Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers are probably the strong point of this game. Genuine to the WWII events that took place in the Pacific arena, you’ll participate in missions that involve scouting, dogfights, scrambling from aircraft carriers once an enemy has been identified (though landing is optional), and taking out communication systems as well as freeing prisoners of war.

Air Conflict Pacific Carriers 2

There are a few different ways to control things in the game, including an arcade-style maneuvering method that is friendly to players of all genres as well as a more challenging simulation mode. You can alternatively hook up the PS Move for a motion-controlled experience. Overall, the controls are not very difficult to master no matter which method you decide to go with. Players have a fair amount of leeway before stalling out, which allows more of a focus on gunning down other planes which is what the  majority of the game is. There is some extent of auto-aim throughout the game, so experienced shooters shouldn’t find Pacific Carriers terribly difficult in that sense.

Graphics / Art Direction: The graphics in this game are not bad at all, and if you’re looking for a more authentic World War II look then the Art Direction is a good fit for the experience.

Engine Performance: No glitches were experienced during our play-through of this game.

Final Verdict: Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers provides the perfect balance between realism and fun factor for the PlayStation 3. If you just want to relive a few Pacific-based World War II moments (from either side of the struggle) you’re in for a well polished experience. Unfortunately, this can become repetitive and the challenge never really increases. The game’s flow is very much a static one, causing you to feel the same way throughout the game. If it had more exciting moments and more of a variation of gameplay it could have been one of the greats. As it stands, Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers receives a respectable 7.5 out of 10 making it a Bronze Game on the RGN Rating scale.

Overall Score: 6.5/10

Developer: Games Farm

Publishers: bitComposer Games / Maximum Games

Available On: PlayStation 3
