Shadow Warrior free on Humble Bundle until July 23rd

Shadow Warrior: Special Edition is currently 100% absolutely free on Humble Bundle for the next day or so, and you can get it here. As well as the base game, you also get the official Shadow Warrior soundtrack, a digital art book and two unique weapons – a Serious Sam 3 sledgehammer and a Hotline Miami katana. It’s a first person shooter and hack-and-slash game with a somewhat loud-mouthed, over-excited protagonist, if the trailer is to be believed. The game appears to have that Serious Sam vibe, with a pinch of Saints Row style over the top gangstas evil corporations,… [Continue Reading]

Grim Dragons – A 2D Dragon in a 3D World

Every so often, I’ll go to the search function on the Steam store and type in the word ‘dragon’ to see what comes up. Normally it’s the same old same old. Dragon’s Dogma. Skyrim. Dragon Age. Dragonball games. Far Cry 3 – Blood Dragon. Then there’s the stuff which is most likely good, but I don’t want to play. That Dragon, Cancer is probably absolutely amazing, but I’m trying to escape reality, not be reminded of it. Most games with the search term are either JRPGs, RPG games of some sort, or side-scrolling games. Assuming that you actually get to… [Continue Reading]

MeeM’s Thoughts on Voxel Hat Dimension Hopper

For those of you who don’t know – That’s FEZ. FEZ is a small game about a guy, called Gomez. He has a hat. More specifically, a fez. This covers the majority of the storyline. The rest of the storyline centres around the magical ability of this fez. It allows Gomez to visit unseen dimensions. Not quite a third dimension, but simply different perspectives of the same dimension. If you get what I mean. And if you don’t… you won’t. The thing about a FEZ is that (slightly less than) half of the game can be achieved solely through the application… [Continue Reading]

On Garry’s Mod

I actually haven’t really talked much about Garry’s Mod before. I wrote a brief article on the perils of posing in Garry’s Mod, but otherwise it’s a mostly unspoken subject. Which is weird since a lot of the Daily SPUF’s images are made by me in said game. Really, I could have moved on to Source Film Maker ages ago. I originally couldn’t because it ran so slowly on my old laptop, and my current laptop isn’t actually much better. The problem with SFM is that the program is a beefy one, which needs to run both a version of… [Continue Reading]

Warframe – Still Not Sure

So I said I was angry at video games. I still am. But I felt that Warframe deserved a third chance. Yes, third chance, because I played it over a year ago, got stuck somewhere, stopped playing, then uninstalled it to make space for another game. Elder Scrolls Online, I think. Coincidentally, Elder Scrolls Online was uninstalled to make room for Warframe this time round. 60GB of hard drive space could be used for a good 5-6 normal sized games. My first time playing was on an old account. I don’t even remember playing that account, and I’d been told… [Continue Reading]

Contest Entry: Unturned (by Bacxaber)

Unturned is a zombie survival game where the player must aquire food/water, armour, weapons and supplies to craft things. The game was immediately appealing to me, given that it reminded me of the Blockhead series in terms of style. I was quite upset to learn about the food/water meters, as I find myself unable to enjoy my time playing such games whilst I have those problems constantly looming over my head. That said, I see why it’s there. There wouldn’t be much point to the game otherwise. You start off completely naked (literally, you don’t have pants) and you can… [Continue Reading]

Mount & Blade: Warband – I Just Can’t Wait to be King

During last year’s Steam Winter Sale, there was a intriguing game with a mind-boggling proportion of positive reviews, many clocking over a thousand hours of play and telling epic and absurd stories of gameplay. I went and bought the series without a second thought. It was pretty cheap, after all. And then I…didn’t touch it. Left it to gather dust in my Library. This little contest allowed me to redeem myself. The Mount & Blade franchise is made of the titular Mount & Blade, Mount & Blade: Warband, which is pretty much the finished, updated version of the original, its… [Continue Reading]

Overlord – It’s Good to be Bad

Once upon a time, there was a fantastic land plagued with a great evil. People lived in fear of the Overlord. But seven valiant heroes set out to defeat him, ultimately succeeding in slaying the malevolent being and destroying his tower. And everyone lived happily ever after…for a couple years; evil always finds a way, and that’s where you come into play. In the dark depths of the tower’s dungeon, you are revived, pulled out of your coffin in the dark depths of the tower’s dungeon, shoved into a suit of armor, and summarily crowned as the new Overlord by the Minions, little… [Continue Reading]

Phovos reviews Overwatch – Getting into our heads!

Hi, Phovos here! And guess what? We’re finally playing Overwatch! After failing to get into every single beta so far, we’ve been playing the Open Beta that lasts until May 9th. Overwatch is a ton of fun. The characters look cool, the maps are amazing, there’s free loot and it’s overall a blast to play. Very chaotic right now, because of the influx of players who don’t know what they’re doing, but still awesome. The maps are the best part of Overwatch, they’re really nice, good-looking maps, even with their long lines of sight and large amounts of choke points.… [Continue Reading]

The Isaacing of Binds

I’m a royal pain in the ass when it comes to trying out new games. It’s very easy for them to annoy me and for me to stop playing, assuming I even get started. Elder Scrolls Online for example pissed me off early on by making lockpicking, stealth and archery all a real pain in the backside. No, I wasn’t expecting Skyrim Online, but I expected, I don’t know, something better, especially since it costs so much just to play the base game, and they had subscriptions and now they have an in-game shop. The Binding of Isaac though is… [Continue Reading]
