Etherium Isn't Just RTS On The Ground But A Galactic Warfare With Spaceships

Etherium Isn't Just RTS On The Ground But A Galactic Warfare With Spaceships

I'm not used to games not releasing gameplay footages/trailers until they've been completed. Etherium by Tindalus Interactive just got its first gameplay trailer and development is coming to a close. That's usually the sign of a troubled development or just shoddy game. The gameplay trailer is also rather rough, animations aren't that nice and the concepts here are like a mix of Universe at War and Company of Heroes, single-base control-point-capture styled RTS.

ZHEROS Is A 3D Perspective Shifting 2D Brawler - Some Call It 2.5D

ZHEROS Is A 3D Perspective Shifting 2D Brawler - Some Call It 2.5D

Rimlight Studios is a new studio in Italy. For their first game, they've announced ZHEROS, a 2D perspective 3D brawler with some platforming elements of avoiding traps and such. It does what new 2D platformers/brawler do, shifting perspective to the front of your character... I believe some call it 2.5D... which is downright ridiculous. I don't think this one will light up the world with 'revolutionary gameplay' but hey if you're a new studio, a solid release is probably a lot more important. It will be released for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One in 2015. Check out the gameplay trailer below...

Team Fortress 2 Smissmas Update Adds A New Game Mode - Grappling Hook Batman Mode On

Valve isn't done with Team Fortress 2. Since going free-to-play in 2012, it’s got a bunch of new additions. For Christmas on top of some festive new items drops, Valve are introducing Manpower Mode. It’s a CTF mode that gives every player grappling hooks. Yes... I said GRAPPLING HOOKS! That’s not all... they are adding power ups... Quake styled power ups that may give you double damage, reduce incoming damage, faster weapon fire rate, greater movement speed, increased critical hits and many more.

Battlefield: Hardline's New Gameplay Trailer Ratchets Up The Cop Drama To 11

Battlefield: Hardline's New Gameplay Trailer Ratchets Up The Cop Drama To 11

Look... DICE just isn't good making a single-player campaign. Which is why I'm a little excited about the prospects of a Battlefield game's single-player that is developed by another studio. Battlefield: Hardline is being developed by Visceral Games... that's the studio widely known for making the Dead Space series. Battlefield: Hardline's single-player looks pretty much like a cliché cop drama... angry police chief and all that included. This new gameplay trailer perhaps gives us a hint of how it's shaping up. Battlefield: Hardline releases 17th march 2015. Check out the gameplay trailer below...

Resident Evil Revelations 2 Opening Cinematic Is 'Terrable' - How To Crash In A Party

Resident Evil Revelations 2 Opening Cinematic Is 'Terrable' - How To Crash In A Party

If Blizzard has a knack for making amazing looking actin sequence CG opening cinematics, Capcom has a knack for the shlocky and corny CGs. Resident Evil Revelations 2 is no different. The video begins with a very cringe-worthy TV ad sequence of TerraSave, an NGO that's committed to helping people affected by Bioterrorism. Make no mistake though, Resident Evil Revelations 2 is no party... it's the Resident Evil of old with puzzle-solving. The first episode release 18th March 2015. Check out the cinematic below...

Here's What You Can Expect In The Halo 5: Guardian Multiplayer Beta - Frantic Red Versus Blue Action

Here's What You Can Expect In The Halo 5: Guardian Multiplayer Beta - Frantic Red Versus Blue Action

How is the multiplayer in Halo 5: Guardian?... in one word... faster. The addition of dash using the thrusters make you much more mobile and nimble. It's probably going to make some people a bit disappointed that it's now a bit more frantic instead of the slower tactical combat from previous Halos. The Multiplayer Beta is available for those that own the Halo: The Master Chief Collection and runs from  29th December 2014 to 18th January 2015. Check out the gameplay preview video and a trailer for the Halo 5 development video diary below...

Space Pirates & Zombies 2 Gameplay Trailer - Here Comes The Zombies

Space Pirates & Zombies 2 Gameplay Trailer - Here Comes The Zombies

Zombies aren't goes making things difficult for space ships, they're also infecting entire fleet of ships in Space Pirates & Zombies 2. The sequel to the top down do whatever you want space game has gone 3D and now it doesn't necessarily have to be top down at all (which was my biggest complaint about the game, the lack of visibility of what's outside your camera view. SPAZ 2 fixes that with a 'third person' or rather 'third space ship' view.

Grey Goo Goes Back To RTS Basics - But Is That Enough?

Grey Goo Goes Back To RTS Basics - But Is That Enough?

In this new Grey Goo developer video diary, the devs talk about building an RTS that goes back to basics... that's not something that's new altogether quite frankly. I don't think it has to be something new... but the idea of going back to the roots has been done to varying success in the past. Grey Goo certainly sound interesting... thematically. But what we've seen has been 'okay' at best. It's not a revolution but a return of a dying genre

Total War: ROME II Wrath of Sparta Campaign Pack Released - This Is Sparta!

Creative Assembly keeps cranking out the DLCs for Total War" ROME II. The latest one is Wrath of Sparta.
