So a few days ago Valve announced that Steam for mobiles would be coming soon, and in the meantime there would be a closed beta for which you could apply from within the app itself. If you weren’t one of the lucky few (and there were quite a few) we have compiled a little test drive of the app, and rather snazzy it is too.
Yup, you ‘eard. Great news for all us mouse-jockeys who love us some cheap cloud-based gameage. Unlike the 3rd party apps we’ve seen so far, Steam Mobile will now allow users to chat to their Steam pals and also hit the shop. What else are you going to do on the bus other than conceal your untimely unprovoked erection?
Steam Mobile is currently in closed beta, but you can beg pathetically to join the beta from within the app like the wee-stained wierd kid on the doorstep of an epic party trying to get in. Yeah, don’t worry, we’ve all been there.
When the management team at CyberConnect2 got together to talk about the development of a new game, I am picturing the conversation went a little like this;
CC2 Manager: “I want you to think of every craziest, blown up battle-fest you have ever seen in an anime or movie and crunch it all together in your head. On top of that, I want you to pull obscure references to Hinduism and other middle Asian religions and slap those on the main characters. Then I want you to all take a copious amount of hallucinogens I purchased from an insightful transient, then write down the result. That’s going to be Chapter 1. There will be many more; each one more immense than the last.”
CC2 Development Team: “That sounds… crazy. Like, brain-maggots crazy.”
CC2: Manager: (With a wild, maniacal gleam in his eyes) “Exactly.”
Thus was born Asura’s Wrath.
I’m supposed to by organising my house moving, writing reviews and doing ‘real’ work. However when I saw this mod for the ever-expanding Skyrim, I had to share it with the world.
The beauty of Skyrim is the massive level of customisation, and when the Creation Kit is released next week, we can expect more genius like the video below.
So yes, this probably isn’t the Assassin’s Creed review you were expecting, so firstly I have a confession to make: In all my ignorant foolishness I thought that Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood was merely Assassin’s Creed II with multiplayer-bells on and, as it turns out, I wasn’t far off the mark, but more on that later.
Disc in drive, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations was all ready to be played, enjoyed and subsequently reviewed, at which point our very own Daisy reliably informed me of my bumbling lunacy and that Brotherhood was in fact a proper game in its own right; storyline and everything. So this is me playing catch up, and I play therefore I review. ACR review coming soon, promise.
Its been a while since I last posted. Real life is crazy-busy at the moment, but when I saw this I just had to put everything down and tell the world.
You know that fantasy game, the one that involves a lot of walking? Um… Skyrim I think its called; we may have mentioned it on this site once or twice before. Well a talented young lady has released a cover version of the song The Dragonborn Comes. I’m rather late to the party as this was originally put on YouTube at the end of November. However it is absolutely spot-on perfect, and definitely worth a look if, like me, you’ve not heard it. Continue reading
