Wargame Red Dragon Gets 3rd Free DLC, and 75% Midweek Madness Discount on Steam

Wargame Red Dragon

Real Time Strategy games are a huge deal right now, and very well as they deserve to be – the genre is making a comeback like that of which we haven’t seen in the video game industry in ages. Rubbish RTS games invaded the market place and nearly choked it out to death before titles started to uplift the genre back to its roots of highly pristine glory for intellectual gamers. Now, we are facing a monsoon of excellent RTS games in the industry – thank God.

But let’s not forget Wargame Red Dragon was one of the first titles to ride that wave, and while its not as much of a new arrival as it was when RealGamerNewz Reviewed it at a respectable 7.5 last May, it’s certainly still worth looking into for this week’s discount of 75% off all Wargame titles including: Wargame Red Dragon, AirLand Battle, European Escalation or the Wargame Franchise Pack. In addition to that little factoid we also have an announcement of the third free DLC pack now being available which adds over 60 new units to the game.

Focus Home Interactive - Wargame Red Dragon - RealGamerNewz

Excerpt from the Official Press Release:

Dedicated to the Scandinavian coalition, it features more than 60 new units for Sweden, Denmark & Norway. Effectively propelling this coalition as well as the individual countries into the early 90’s era, it will bring them onto an equal footing with the other nations from Wargame: Red Dragon. Every type of unit is represented (planes, infantry, tanks, IFVs.) including some iconic and long-expected “Northern” units: the Saab Gripen, Frømandskorpset, NASAMS… And as a bonus, ANZAC will also get an extra unit, in the form of the Vickers Mk.11.

75% Off Midweek Madness Discount on Steam

Dev Diary for New RTS “Offworld Trading Company” Revealed, Seeks #Gamers Feedback

Offworld Trading Company RealGamerNewz RTS Steam Early Access

The rush to space is real, found your own colony or get left behind in the dust with new RTS game OTC AKA Offworld Trading Company, by Mohawk Games.

The team behind Offworld Trading Company, a new Real Time Strategy game hitting Steam Early Access on February 12, 2015, is looking for the feedback of veteran gamers on the PC platform playing RTS games. They’ve stated a commitment to the community and a willingness to take feedback seriously. And yet, this title is already showing a unique and fairly established identity for itself.

Taking place on Mars, Offworld Trading Company is a diverse type of RTS that allows for corporate espionage, eco-system manipulation, EMP technology, competitive financials, environmental resources with fluctuating prices, and much much more. Mars is a place where survival is key, just imagine that on a micro / macro scale but done with more of the great aspects from traditional RTS games.

The following developer diary video blog was posted up by Stardock Games who is publishing this title developed by Mohawk Games.

Offworld Trading Company RealGamerNewz RTS Steam Early Access 2

The video is hosted by Soren Johnson (Founder at Mohawk Games, Co-Designer of Civilization III, Lead Designer of Civilization IV) who states that “the games are very dynamic, no two games are ever the same in Offworld.”

Age of Empires and Star Craft are stated as some of the team’s biggest influences with a love for the genre and a hunger for innovative RTS experiences at the heart of this project.

Not only is this a scenario that mankind may actually face in real life, but its a game with an original concept in a genre that seems to be revitalizing itself with top-notch entries. We are happy to see this Developer Diary and urge more developers to do these types of productions to let players know what their vision is and what their games are all about rather than the often mis-communicative trailers that Early Access titles sometimes get.

Let us know what you think in the comments below or on Stardock’s YouTube and get your voices heard.

Heroes of the Storm Beta Access w/ Founder’s Pack [HD 1080P Footage Inside!]

Heroes_Of_The_Storm_138203755237651

In case you haven’t heard, Heroes of the Storm is a game that Blizzard has been showing us at press events for some time now as well as getting players into during a gradually growing Beta which is now available for customers of the Founder’s Back released by Blizzard Entertainment on their market place and gaming community Battle.net . The feel of the game is something like Starcraft RTS elements meshed with Blizzard’s take on the MOBA genre. The gameplay thus far looks fluid, but a final build isn’t in players hands – so we’re still keeping a skeptic eye about how good that gameplay really is.

Take a look at the Gameplay Footage for yourself, with a listing of where to get the Founder’s Pack, what’s in it, and the animated trailer for it below in Full 1080P High Definition.

Heroes of the Storm Founder’s Pack Available Now at Battle.net $39.99

  • Beta Access
  • 2500 In-Game Gold
  • 3 Heroes
  • 3 Skins
  • 1 Epic Mount

Anomaly 2 PS4 Review

anomaly-2-ps4

Anomaly 2 comes from 11 Bit Studios out of Warsaw, Poland their flagship series is of course the Anomaly series. Since Anomaly 2 came out last year it got reviewed originally on PC with a score of 8.7 out of 10. They also came out with Anomaly Defenders where for the first time the campaign was completely playable as the alien race and that was a great perspective. It also received a score of 8.7 out of 10 so there is a lot of great gameplay coming out of this series so should the user except the same level of polish now that’s it’s on the PS4 in full HD?

The year is 2034 A.C. most of the earth has been frozen over and the world population is unknown, machines have returned to earth and have the sole purpose to annihilate the human race. The user will take control of a small squad as they travel across the campaign, they will meet Doctor Zander with the help of his associates the user will have Project Shockwave which is the ultimate weapon against the machines. Anomaly 2 is reverse tower defense where the user is the one attacking. Throughout the course of the campaign the user will be the commander of a squad of six vehicles which all look pretty normal at first but as the user progresses and new strategies have to be taken into account, they will find that each vehicle can morph; such as the Assault Hound morphing into the Hellhound. Each of these transformations can be done by the click of a button and they also can turn the tides of the battle depending on what type of tower they are up against.

Anomaly 2_20140919192254

The machines have some great towers up their sleeves as well so don’t count them out. Examples of the machine towers are the Scorcher which has punishing damage but its flaw is that it can only shoot in a straight line, the enforcer which is relatively weak but has shield surrounding it during battle, and the Behemoth which is heavily armored and has shock pulses plus several others.

 Anomaly 2 is playable on four different difficulty levels each of them providing the user with a good amount of challenge. Adapting to the situation is key in Anomaly 2 since scenarios change in game and then its up to the user to use the right kind of unit to survive against the machines. Anomaly 2 runs great on the PS4, the graphics are extremely crisp and beautiful the sound is amazing and is great through surround sound.

The game controls a lot better with the Dualshock 4 with everything taking a basic function with one of the buttons, all of the abilities are controlled with different directions on the d-pad while more of the squad control comes from the face buttons such as triangle, square, x, and circle. The movement is done with the left stick and camera movement with the right stick and this really just feels more natural. There is full multiplayer in the PS4 version of the game just like there was on the PC and from the several times looking for matches it takes a really long time to find a game and can cause the game to lock up your PS4 which happened on two separate occasions.

Anyone looking to pick this game up just for the multiplayer make sure to have another friend get it so that you can find a game, it seems that the multiplayer crowd might not be there yet but give it a few more weeks or a few more months and maybe a sale or something and there will be more copies and more users online.

Final verdict: Anomaly 2 is a great title and a great series there is a lot of game to experience from a long story that is extremely replayable with different difficulty levels and smarter AI. The movement of the game overall feels better with the Dualshock 4 it feels more natural and allows the user to fully submerge themselves in the game. The lack of multiplayer games out there is disappointing for now but it has the potential to get a lot better since the multiplayer is extremely fun and really addicting if user’s like to employ different types of strategy.
