Secret Service: In Harm's Way
was pretty good. For a budget game, that is. But FUN Labs took the same game engine and most of the assets and made... another one. Little more than a mission pack sequel, does Shadow Force: Razor Unit
succeed on the merits of its predecessor?
No. Don't be ridiculous.
Chrome AKA Advanced Battlegrounds: The Future of Combat
Now in The Budget Barrel, a sci-fi shooter that's basically a Far Cry clone, except it came out in 2003... a full year before Far Cry was released. Spooky!Secret Service: Security Breach
Unfortunately, the Secret Service license passed to 4D Rulers software. And 4D Rulers made Secret Service: Security Breach, the worst game Roland's ever played.Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z (2014)
There's a new Dragon Ball Z game, right on schedule! We've had one of these just about every year for the last ten years, but the last few have been terrible. With Battle of Z, a new developer and style of game play attempt to mix things up. So let's see how well that works.Grand Theft Auto V (PS3): One step forward, one step back
Roland played Grand Theft Auto V for more than a hundred hours, a handful of which contained actual gameplay! It's flawed, rough around the edges, and rough around the middle, with many of GTA 4's best mechanics run through the strainer of Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3. By which we mean ruined.ELoG Awards: Best and worst of gaming 2014
It's Roland's third annual Best and Worst of Gaming video, with an idiosyncratic award naming convention lifted from Penny Arcade (just like Yahtzee did).A History of Cover-Based Shooters (and why they suck)
Roland takes a look back at the original cover-based shooters, and how they've evolved into the industry standard that's used for so many games today. Then he lays out three of the big issues that seem to plague these games, using Spec Ops: The Line, Max Payne 3, and several older games as examples.
