  1. So...my sister got me hooked on Subnautica. I had heard snatches about it a few years ago, but now the game has officially released...and has an ending! I love it! While I generally consider myself a person with few fears and the ability to manage the ones I have...deep open water scares the crap out of me! Even though I'm well aware that most of the really big sea creatures on our own planet aren't all that interested in little old you (whales and such), the very idea of looking down past your feet and seeing nothing but deep blue fading to black is terrifying! Needless to say, the bigger creatures in Subnautica DO very much want to EAT YOU! And I had a blast finding ways to survive while staying as far as possible from reaper leviathans. I won't spoil the storyline, but I thought it was well written, and I really appreciated that there was an actual end to the game. Usually, survival games just give you the goal of "survive and explore" or "horde phat loot", and for me, the fun wears out really quickly when there's no endgame. I wish more open-world survival games would do what Subnautica does, and it gives me a small amount of hope for Fallout 76...but only a little. And at $24.99 on Steam, I thought it was a really good value. The graphics are nice, I ran into few if any bugs and the development team seems dedicated. 8/10
  2. Hey guys and gals! James here aka Wade D McGinnis! Today I release the updated version of Holo Call. A weekly show where I talk about gaming news, entertainment, and my opinion on these topics. This episode is all about Abatron (an indie RTS title) that came out too early for Early Access and why I stop reviewing Mass Effect Andromeda. Check it out and let me hear your thoughts on if a game can release too early for Early Access and whether you enjoyed Andromeda!
  3. There's a game in steam that catches my eye and its called "Gunscape". The game is inspired by Doom and Quake and it looks awesome. The game is also made by Blowfish Studios For now, the game's state is in Early Access, and it shows potential, you can also build your own maps but for now, you can only use 2 different sets (Tremor and the Jungle set), but you can mix and match the different blocks, because of this, the game promotes community maps. Nothing much to say about the game and i recommend this to gamers who love the Doom and Quake play style and i recommend this game to players looking to experience the Doom and Quake play style. Here's the trailer for the game Here is also the Minimum Specs Windows Users OS: Windows XP Processor: SSE2 instruction set support. Memory: 1 GB RAM Graphics: DX9 (shader model 3.0) capabilities Network: Broadband Internet connection Hard Drive: 500 MB available space Mac Users OS: Mac OS X 10.6 Processor: SSE2 instruction set support.

  4. http://www.reddit.com/r/TOXIKK/comments/37pmjs/can_you_trust_reakktor/ I mean really? They ban pepole that rightfully demand money for content they've bought and it was released for free? They also ban everyone that does negative opinions. Furthermore, one of their mods seems to be breaking ALL THE LAWS constatnly. Seriously. According to forum, laws of user countries are respected aswell, and mine got broken several times. I got harassed denounced and annoyed by Sharkster, one of admins that has commited multiple stalking and harassment crimes and he let these crimes happen knowing about them. It has been reported, nothing done about it. I get also falsely banned (He represents whole Reakktor studios?) by suspecting that hes a racist/xenophobe by denouncing my country by disrespecting it's laws.. I'm from Poland, he's from Germany so you get the idea. I mean, WTF? I have no words how shady this developer seems to be. Did you know that they almost got a lawsuit from epic because they wanted to use Impact Hammer (the name) in their game but Epic prepared the lawsuit so they backed off? That info can be found only on epic and UT forums. Their forums are clear of any flaws of the game besides no playerbase. All of them can be pointed out only on other forums, as on their own they get deleted. They keep things really tight shut so nobody can talk or do anything about this. They lie, cheat and now this?! Wow, just wow. What do you think?
  5. Dear friends, we are searching for Life is Feudal players. My name is Doktar and I absolutely love Life is Feudal and these new Italian servers! Language is Italian, but they are open to anyone who wants to test the quality of these servers! USA players will find an impressive low ping for the best performance. You can find the Official Group on Steam here: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/LIFitalia/ To read news about the servers: http://life-is-feudal.org/server/3134/ Servers have two gameplay modes, a roleplaygame one and an action one (faster and perfect for PvP) After studying the successes and failures of other servers, Server Admins set up specific configurations and goals for the best gaming experience with Life is Feudal! - There are no Community zones- There are no pre-built structures- No help from the Admins that will be "unavailable"- Only one Goal: Just Survival! Please contact me for any questions, but don't forget, ingame you'll be alone xD Have a nice day!
  6. Hi Angry Army! I got my hands on a very early build of Killing Floor 2 which hits Steam Early Access on the 21st April. Is it any good so far? Yes. Yes it is! Reckon the Angry Army will want to get their teeth into this when it comes out?
  7. Earlier last year, The Repopulation went into a public alpha, claiming to be a sandbox mmorpg with influence from SWG and Ultima Online. Joe did a stream on it, but unfortunately I missed it. Please leave opinions and thoughts about its current, and planned features. Note that this is not a post about wanting to see the game become official, but rather seeing who is interested and what is known about this title.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ie_pPYZNjk0
  8. Hi guys, here's my Early Access Review of the magnificent harcore RPG Darkest Dungeon from Red Hook Studios. This game is deliciously difficult with a fantastic atmosphere. Have any of you ladies and gents picked it up yet? What do you think?
  9. Howdy-ho Angry Army? Lovely day today, isn't it? Well, I could swear there are racing enthusiasts among this community. I have made some posts before asking what kind of games do AJSA community members play, and thought that "racing is competetive as shit. we should get an official racing game for the AJSA!" Well what game? Mario Kart? In baby-land, sure. Forza? Well, if you're a squirmy casual. No no no, we need something realistic, while at the same time something new. And I do believe I have found it! It's an early access simulator by Kunos Simulazioni, and I am amazed actually that a game in alpha has better physics than most AAA racing games today (Forza, Gran Turismo). I actually made a little gameplay video showcasing the game. It's only like 35 euros and gets monthly updates, naturally. It's also supported by mods already, even though there is no official kit for making Assetto Corsa assets, people find a way.. (I think at least) Please excuse my crap driving. I made this thing in a quick race and didn't bother to really warm up or anything.
  10. http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-05-15-gog-on-early-access-definitely-not-every-game-should-be-permitted Yes, even Good Old Games is considering the dreaded "Early Access" module that Steam is using..
  11. Hi guys, Here's my recent Critical Hit video in which I talk about the problems with Steam's front page: What do you guys think about Steam at the moment? What do you think can be done to improve it? Thankyou for your time as always!
  12. What are your thoughts on the whole "Early Access" concept that Steam is now pushing? Do you think you should be able to pay for an unfinished game? Do you think it really helps game development?
  13. Yeah so I was wondering what yall think of early access games on steam. I personally don't have a problem with the concept but it kinda confuses me. Ok so games like DayZ are in early access, why? Hasn't it been out for a while now. Why don't they officially release it and just come out with updates. Thats what early access is basicly, a full priced beta. Now like I said I don't have a problem with it out right but I think that early access games should only be in early access for like 6 months then they need to have a official release. Thoughts?
  14. In Joe's latest video, he talked about being sick of Betas that weren't Betas at all. Either being a broken version of the full game, or just a "paid preview". For this reason, I wanted to know what defines a Beta and/or Early Access version of a game for you. Do you agree that Betas should not be stretched out for prolonged periods just to make more money? Why do you think so many companies are turning to this "release what we have, finish it later" style of distributing? What can we do about it, if anything? Thank you for your time.
  15. So, what is War of the Vikings? WotV is a Steam early access game with vikings versus saxons in bloody, violent combat! Perhaps you are familiar with War of the Roses? WotV is from the same publisher and is in the same spirit, the largest difference is the time period it is set in. And ofcourse some gameplay mechanics. WotR was about the war for the english throne between the Lancasters and York, contesting about who was the rightful heir in the 1400's. War of the Vikings, no surprise, is about the viking conquest of what was later to be England. The two sides involved in this conflict are the vikings and the saxons. Many of you might have watched the television series Vikings. This game is set in the same time period, exactly the same time period. Let's get down to the basics. There are 3 different classes: Hirdman (archer/skirmisher) Huscarl (heavy melee fighter) Thane (light melee fighter) As it is right now, there are preset profiles that you can chose between. In the full game, you will be able to pick 1 of the 3 classes and construct it from scratch, by picking weapons, armor and cosmetic appearance such as armor color, shield paint and unique helmets. You will also be able to choose perks. Some of them are unique to specific classes, some aren't. Perks will give you enhanced abilities or passive bonuses, such as Juggernaut that prevents anyone from knocking you down or Hard Hitter, that does just what it sounds like, to Bloodthirsty, which gives you health regeneration upon a kill. The combat system works around mouse stroke directions, stamina and health. By pressing left mouse, you will do a fast strike. By moving your mouse in any direction as you press, you will chose the direction of your strike. For example, if I press my attack button whilst moving (not much movement is required) to the left with my onehanded sword, my character will ready up a strike that will hit from the left. Parrying works in the same way, where you have to set up your parry correctly by doing the correct mouse movement, but instead of left mouse you use the right mouse button. There is also blocking with a shield, that requires a bit less reaction than parrying does, but still requires you to face the incoming strike with the shield in order to block it. There are regular attacks that require no charge time, and there are attacks that you can charge and hold for greater damage and force. There are also special attacks that you use by pressing F. Depending on the weapon, your character will do a special attack for high damage. Beware, missing with your special attack will leave you wide open, so timing it is important. All special attacks break a block or parry. One-handed sword special is a thrust forward. Unable to 1shot an enemy at full health, unless that enemy is an archer. One-handed axe special is a swirl, where your character turns 360 degrees and strikes at head height for high damage. This often decapitates or instantly kills any enemy. Twohanded axe special attack is an overhead chop. This attack ALWAYS kills your enemy, as it strikes from above and will often hit the enemy's head or shoulders. If the enemy is blocking with a shield, his shield may break into pieces. There are daggers, though I have yet to actually try if they have a special attack. Bows do not have a special attack. Stamina is used to sprint, to block, to parry and to strike. Constantly swinging or constantly blocking will make you run out of stamina, making you unable to keep up your attack or your defense, so wildly swinging isn't always a good option or going completely on the defensive will not keep you alive forever. Weapons available now, and planned: Onehanded swords, onehanded axes, twohanded axes, throwing axes, throwing knives, longbows, shortbows, daggers and spears. Ofcoures, variations on all of these. THere will also be differentiating armors, shields and lots of customization. These things will in the full version of hte game be unlocked by either purchasing the in-game currency with real money, or earning said currency by playing. You will get XP and coins (if this is in the end what they choose to use, it was used in War of the Roses) by killing, reviving, etc. There are two important gameplay mechanics that you will need to understand. 1. Execution 2. Reviving 3. Bandaging When an enemy is struck down, he doesn't die, unless he takes excessive damage before falling to the ground. Instead, he will lay on the ground. In order to prevent his friends from helping him back up, you will need to execute him. It's simple, you need to strike him with your weapon one more time to the head. The enemy, or you, can choose to kill themselves when in this downed state, so as to spawn again if they don't think they have a chance of being rescued. Likewise, if you see an enemy that has struck down someone on your team, you can actually rescue them if you manage to stop him from executing your team mate. By walking up to a downed team mate and pressing E, you will help him get to his feet so that he can fight again. If you find yourself heavily injured and almost dead, you can bandage yourself as well by holding E. This takes 6 seconds though and leaves you very open for attack. That's the jist of it, I think. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me or add me on Steam (account name is nominator2k, screen name is [Decoy] Olof Facechewer). Perhaps we could get an Angry Army group for this game? This is a perfect game for anger! Here are some gameplay videos with myself playing. No talking, just gameplay. Good gameplay too, I fancy myself a rather good player! A short gameplay trailer I put together, if you don't want to watch an entire match. Another shorter video with killstreaks and violence to the sound of Sabaton - Swedish Pagans. Hirdman gameplay, me dominating as an archer with shortbow. Huscarl gameplay, brutalizing my enemy with an axe! Mixed gameplay, with a lot of teamwork and some dodging.
