Review by Meho Krljic Zeno Clash Developer Ace Team Publisher Valve Corporation/ Noviy Disk Released April 21, 2009 Available for PC Verdict: 4/5 Thumbs Up “If punching people in the face was this fun in real life no one would be taking heroin, going to college or playing videogames” The Curse of Independence In the […]
Rock, Paper, Shotgun has an interview with GSC Game World’s Oleg Yavorsky on the upcoming S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat, which is due this fall (yeah right). While I know that opinions varied on Clear Sky – a game I now feel I was too hard on – I am a stalwart fan of the series […]
Noitu Love 2: Devolution essentially bursts with quality. It’s just a highly professional piece of work, from the actual design of the stages and action down to the quality testing. It feels like a proper commercial product despite the low resolution, occasional screen-tear and the campy old-skool aesthetic. It’s a pick-up and play kind of game that anyone can play but that anyone will almost certainly be someone already considered a (dare I say it – hardcore) gamer.
One of the more interesting tidbits to come out of Gamasutra’s recent analysis of the state of GameStop was the huge profit GameStop makes selling used games. It’s not rocket science how they do it. They buy back nearly mint games from gamers for pennies on the dollar, slap a big price tag on the […]
Reasons to buy that PS3 just keep piling up, as word from the ticker reveals that Demon’s Souls, a dungeon-crawler action RPG from Atlus, will be making its way across the Pacific to arrive on U.S. shores in the fullness of time. Apparently Eurogamer gave it a 9/10 and called it “absolutely compelling.” Even if […]
Recently, I asked the question: “Why do some games, like Grand Theft Auto, Halo, Max Payne and others become such winners in the marketplace?” Ever since then I have been trying to unlock the secret to developing and selling winning games. So, the question for today should be pretty obvious. What makes gamers line up […]
PlayStation LifeStyle, Sony’s web portal for all things PlayStation, has posted very early footage of Team ICO’s next game, Project Trico, destined for the PS3. The footage is just under 4 minutes, but in that short period of time managed to make me feel all warm and squishy inside… either that or I’m coming down […]
Review by Mike “Scout” Gust The Path Developer Tale of Tales Publisher Tale of Tales Released March 18, 2009 Available for PC (version reviewed)/MAC Verdict: 4/5 Thumbs Up “I soon came to realize that this was not your typical video game. In fact, it can reasonably be argued that it’s not a video game at […]
It has come to my attention that some gamers enjoy a bit of didactic discourse. Dissection and deconstruction fashioned into posts and comments aimed at interpretation and insight seem to rule Tap-Repeatedly’s front page. Do Games = Art and if so, how and why? Luckily, gaming is all about choice. In order for games, or any single […]
It’s been threatening for some time now: first a bit of misdirection involving a possible sniper update, now revealed through clever internet chicanery to be the Spy. I don’t really play much Team Fortress 2 any more, but I do love these character movies. And so shall you!
