Goat Simulator Mmore Goatz Edition

mmore goatz banner

Goat Simulator Mmore Goatz Edition dropped this week on Xbox 360 and Xbox One and includes the updated MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) version of Goat Simulator and the Day Z zombie survival game inspired version Goatz. Living life as a goat in a sandbox environment sounds bizarre enough to me as it is, but given the original Goat Simulator’s past success I wondered if this would be more of the same glitchy hilarious craziness we saw in the first place.

Starting off in the world as a little goat you will be handed two game type options at the main menu, the MMO which is the original game but with lots more to do. There is a level cap of 101, new people to meet and more quests to help out the people of the community in weird and wonderful ways (one of them is dragging a man out of poop!). The quests are generally simple; ranging from killing a certain amount of enemies, destroying things or relocating people somewhere in the world. 

It is pretty much impossible to die in this game, instead you can get stuck in random places due to the glitches that are add to the comedic value but is easily fixed by the magic respawn button. You can explore the vast lands and find collectables, a lot of hilarious glitches, secret areas and defeat enemies with the glorious headbutt while levelling up your beloved goat. Being called the Mmore Goats Edition you can of course unlock a lot more goats each with special powers to use around the maps.

Implemented into the MMO side of the game is the inventory system where you can store pretty much anything you decide to lick, from which your goat gain XP for, licking items will store » Continue Reading.

Bungie strikes the Dreadnaught in latest Twitch reveal

TTK_Crucible_A_Heroic_01

Bungie have just wrapped up their second reveal stream on Twitch, and this time it focused purely on the new mechanics for strikes.

Special guest Mr Fruit, of YouTube fame, joined Community Manager Cozmo and Gameplay Designer Claude Jerome as they explored the Dreadnaught, showcasing one of the new strikes coming next month.

The Shield Brothers takes place in the new Dreadnaught environment, as Guardians are tasked with stopping a Cabal onslaught against Oryx and the Hive. Based in the rings of Saturn, players will be hunting down the Cabal brothers, and taking on both Cabal and the new Taken enemies as they make their way to them.

The emphasis on new strikes for The Taken King is how the final boss encounter has changed, and players will no longer be facing bullet sponges, such as Valus Ta’aurc in the original Cerberus Vae III strike. Instead, they will have to think through strategies to take down this new adversaries.

Once your fireteam has made it’s way through the twisted corridors of the crashed Cabal ship, guided by the Hunter mentor Cayde-6, they will enter an arena-style final room where they will face the Shield Brothers. Both Valus Mau’ual and Valus Tlu’urn have their own personalities, and much like arcade games of old, it is up to the players to devise a strategy to take them down.

First up is Valus Mau’ual, whose attack is very similar to the Titan Fist of Havoc, ground pounding his way around the arena in an attempt to stop the Guardians in their tracks. Once you fight him down to approximately half health, he retreats, and his brother comes in to play. Valus Tlu’urn has a much more range to his attack, barraging players with his mortars, and once he too is » Continue Reading.

Grab three hours with Dying Light’s playable demo

Dying-Light

Are you yet to step into Techland’s world of zombies with Dying Light? You must have missed my review then… it’s a must buy for any zombie fan, even more so now that there’s going to be a sizeable piece of DLC dropping. The new content is called Dying Light: The Following and includes dirt buggies, a huge new area to explore and a brand new progression system.

Need more convincing? Then why not see for yourself because there’s now a demo available that will let you explore the first ‘Slums’ area of the game. There’s three hours of unique content – so quite the demo – and includes one story quest chain, some side quests, challenges and random encounters.

With online co-op for up to four players and the full day/night cycle, if you aren’t hooked after playing this  this demo, then there’s no hope of enticing you to this superb parkour survival zombie romp.

 

 With the demand for Dying Light still high after more than half a year on the market, we wondered what else we could do to help players decide which game to buy. Then we thought: demoes were pretty much a standard in the previous generation, but suddenly they’ve become few and far between. So we decided to use some of our resources to release a demo now and let everyone experience our game first-hand.

Games-with-Gold

Xbox One Gold members will receive The Deer God and Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition for free during the month of September. Tomb Raider needs no introduction but you may be wondering what the Deer God is… How about a trailer to explain?

On the Xbox 360 the two games you get are Battlestations Pacific  and Crysis 3, wasn’t it mentioned that all future Xbox 360 Games with Gold titles would be available via backwards compatibility? If so then I guess we can take the Games with Gold program as confirmation of new titles added to the Xbox One’s newest feature.

Tales from the Borderlands Episode 4 review

talesfromborderlandsfeat

Tales from the Borderlands has been an excellent addition to the Telltale series of games, and at the end of Episode 3 I was left excitedly wanting to get my hands on episode 4. We are nearly at the end of the Tales journey and I’d have to say it’s up there with the first season of the Walking Dead in terms of Telltale games.

The penultimate episode, titled Escape Plan Bravo sees Ryhs, Fiona and the rest of the gang attempting to infiltrate Hyperion’s headquarters in a good old fashion heist as they try to collect the parts necessary to complete the Gortys Project, getting the final pieces will allow them to gain access to the Vault of the Traveler and the treasures that it holds within, which will help everyone.

Unfortunately, apart from a couple of moments this was probably my least favourite episode of the series.

The story never really felt like it moved on at any point, with the decisions you had to make not really feeling like they had an bearing on the story. Episode 4 lasts around 90 minutes and left me asking more questions than getting answers. As I mentioned there are some brilliant moments, including one moment that will bring a tear to your eye and quite possibly change the Borderlands universe forever. The other is a brilliant exchange between Rhys and his former colleagues that really did have me laughing. It such a shame that there was more to keep me smiling.

There are some great characters in the series and the barely get a look in this episode which is a real shame as it could have given the episode a much needed boost. It’s been interesting watching the relationship between Rhys and Flynn, and how it’s changed from the » Continue Reading.
