Toy Soldiers: War Chest Hall of Fame edition review


Toy Soldiers: War Chest is the third Toy Soldiers game, after fighting in the Second World War and then the Cold War the third title allows you to fight as G.I. Joe and other toys from your War Chest.

If you haven’t played any of the Toy Soldiers game then let me explain it to you; the game is a blend of Tower Defence mixed with RTS gameplay and a bit of third person shooter action! You start with an empty battlefield with the ability to build your first two turrets before the first wave begins. When the first wave begins you’ll earn cash for each enemy you kill, from there you can build more turrets and upgrade them. Your objective is to stop the waves of enemies from entering your Toy Box and destroying it. At the end of the round you are awarded a score and given XP and tokens that can be used to purchase boxes of upgrades and equipment to use with your army.

There are different types of turrets available from anti-infantry to anti-aircraft, you can then upgrade them to use more powerful ammo, or better protection with sand bags and eventually stone walls. Every kill you get not only gives you cash but builds up an action meter in the bottom left corner, as you get higher combination kills, the quicker your bar goes up. There are three stages of super powers you can unleash, with the third being the most powerful. Taking control of your hero unit is really cool, as they enter the battlefield they fall from the sky in their packaging before ripping out and allowing you to lay waste to your enemies. The Hero unit is only available for a short amount of time but can be boosted by batteries that are » Continue Reading.

Zombi review


Recently I’ve stepped back into Dying Light’s Harran, and boy do I have the hunger for Zombie flesh – have I turned already? Luckily for me, there’s a new zombie game to satisfy my undead needs. Zombi has arrived on Xbox One, originally releasing on the Amstrad way back in 1986 and more recently as a launch title on the Wii U.

The zombie apocalypse has hit London; an outbreak has engulfed the population turning them into creatures of the undead, but we were warned that this might happen. John Dee predicted the plague, and tried to find a cure, although it has become a mere myth and the Prepper, a mysterious voice who guides survivors through CCTV and radio comms, maintains it doesn’t exist. The Prepper did believe the prophecy, and has prepared safe houses and shortcuts, but are his intentions pure?

You follow his commands blindly, like any good sheep would its shepherd, being herded from one level to another. Unlike recent zombie titles, the world of Zombi is rather confined and linear in its level design – not too dissimilar to many FPS titles – corridors lead to large areas where you must negotiate a problem or set piece, all the while you must tread carefully, even a lone zombie can be a deadly threat and if you’re killed, that’s it! There are no restarts.

Instead you start back at the safe house in control of a new survivor, with your trusty cricket bat in hand and a pistol with limited ammo. Now you must start from scratch, scavenging for more precious supplies. There is a locker in the safe house that you can leave items for new survivors so they aren’t completely under equipped, and your previous character is out there, one of the undead, » Continue Reading.

Rainbow Six : Siege delayed until December


Ubisoft’s highly anticipated return to the Rainbow Six IP has hit a 7 week snag as, following extensive internal play-testing and closed alpha testing, Ubisoft Montreal have taken the decision to postpone the release of the title until December 1st 2015.

An update from the development team today confirmed that although the game release has been delayed, they have decided to go ahead with the September 24th date for the closed beta.

The development team update stated

The additional time will allow us to further test things like infrastructure and matchmaking. That extra testing and added polish will make for a higher-quality experience at launch.

We understand that many of you are excited to get your hands on the final game, but as gamers ourselves we know that quality comes first and we are committed to delivering the best game possible.

I for one am a little disappointed I wont be getting my hands on the full game on the 13th of October, but on the other hand if they need extra time to ensure the quality of the game I am happy they are being up front about their passion and commitment to deliver a top quality game.

This transparency from Ubisoft has been a welcome change following the public outcry over the release of Assassins Creed last year, and long may it continue.




Zombi shuffles on to Xbox One


Zombi, formerly ZombiU – a Wii U launch title – is now available to buy on Xbox One, and at £14.99/$19.99/€19.99, it’s an absolute steal. My review will go live later today, having spent last night sneaking around the dimly lit streets of London, it’s a great game that will test even the most experienced zombie player and it’s certainly worth the asking price.

Death is permanent and you aren’t able to wade into a horde and come out the other side unscathed, because of this, it can be pretty unnerving making even a single shuffling zombie a valid threat. Check out the reveal trailer below.


Ubisoft reveal new Spectator Cam for Rainbow Six Siege


Ubisoft have revealed a new Spectator Cam for Rainbow Six Siege multiplayer, allowing an 11th member to watch the battle unfold. Allowing the player to watch the match in real time, they are able to follow individual players on the battlefield, and observe all teams and objectives.

Spectator Cam will offer the player a real-time overview of the strategies and tactics as they unfold, making watching the multiplayer mayhem both entertaining and informative.

This will be a fantastic mechanic for competitive matches too, making it much easier for commentators to follow the action as it happens.

Rainbow Six Siege is due for release on October 13 on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC.

Players are still able to sign up for the closed beta via the Rainbow Six Siege website.

Ubisoft announce Zombi for Xbox One


Ubisoft have just announced the development of Zombi, an upgrade of the highly acclaimed survival-horror game.

Originally a Wii U flagship title in 2012, Zombi challenges players to see how long they can survive in a zombie-ridden London.

For the second time in history, the city has been shrouded in a fog of death, as the great plague returns. Leaving thousands dead, or infected by an illness more gruesome than death, this fear-fuelled first person shooter tasks the player to survive in such horrific and chaotic scenarios, armed with only the bug-out bag on their back, containing important items such as first aid kits, tools, maps, and more.

But they must be careful, as when their character dies, they die for good, and they are then in charge of a brand new survivor, and must go hunt for their old, infected character. If they are successful, they then have the opportunity to recover their old bug-out bag, but do they risk the chance of being infected again?

Xbox One zombie hunters will be able to experience the oppressive and intense Zombi, when it releases as a digital download on August 18.

Zombi is also releasing on Playstation 4 and PC on the same day.
