When it comes to tower defense games you should certainly know the drill by now, defend a position against waves of enemies that increase in difficulty. There’s nothing glitzy or clever about Defense Grid 2, it’s pure tower defense fun with a rough story laced over the top of the campaign in an attempt to give the game some grounding – it doesn’t work and I barely took any notice of the rather annoying one-liner companions that you get paired with.
There are five chapters to get through totalling twenty missions plus a prologue. DG2 also comes with multiplayer for when you’ve had your fill of the campaign, but if you only have eyes for the single player campaign, you’ll be pleased to know that there’s a whole host of content available in each campaign – you can opt for a straight up story mode or take on a more challenging wave of enemies by playing with buffs or limiters to your arsenal, each level may then be taken on at easy, normal, hard or elite mode.
When placing towers, the trick is to manage your resources carefully, which tower do you place or do you upgrade your existing towers – whichever you decide your main goal is to stop the aliens from stealing your power cores and to maximise your chances of destroying them you can place towers along their route to make the path to their goal longer, you can even direct enemies right the way around your tower groups making them spend as much time as possible in your tower’s area of attack.
Once you get through several levels, modifiers are available to your towers and can be applied before you start a level. This affects their behaviour towards enemies and can prove vital to your » Continue Reading.

If you prefer to do your gaming on a console such as Xbox, it’s great if you can get all the games you want on the one device. But there are some games where it’s better to go elsewhere, and that’s especially true for real money games such as bingo and casino games.
Before there were real money gambling sites, it was possible to play gambling games such as bingo and casino classics like roulette, blackjack and slots on a console. But the major downside to all the different versions of these games was that you couldn’t play with real cash. And while a positive from that is that you’re not spending money to play, any win that you had would always feel pretty meaningless. After all, what’s the point of playing a game that is designed to be about real money when you can’t place real bets.
The Xbox bingo option is Bingo Party, where there are four different types of bingo game that you can play. One plus point to playing these kinds of games on an Xbox is that you can make it a multi-player experience – inviting just the people you want to play with. Bingo Party can have up to 31 players at once, so you can certainly make it a party atmosphere if you want to. And the games can be fun as there are lots of unlockable items and over 50 different winning patterns.
However, you can invite friends to play with you at online bingo sites too. Click to play online here and you’ll see that there are different rooms that you can play in, and each of those has a chat room linked to it. So if you want your friends to join you in a game of bingo, » Continue Reading.
One of the best Summer of Arcade titles ever for the Xbox 360 in 2010, LIMBO from PlayDead Studio’s was a highly addictive and dark puzzle game that involved the constant death of a boy in search of his potentially dead sister! As a free gift to Xbox One gamers who bought the Day One edition of the console, redeem codes for the game are rolling out right now – you might want to check your inbox!
The whole game from start to finish is set in a monochrome land with perfectly detailed backdrops to give the impression of a small lost boy venturing through a big dangerous world. Further adding to eerie sinister setting is the lack of in-game music which really works more of an advantage. As you progress from one part of the land to another, the only sound you hear is your own footsteps and the effects of your current backdrop. When it’s raining, you hear the rain pour, in the forest the wind blows, in water you splash and as you trek across girders you hear the sound of clunky metal. Whilst the lack of in-game music might seem like a bore for some, it really would spoil the feel of the ambiance as each chapter is a new shade of darkness just waiting to be explored.
There doesn’t appear to be an obvious story from the onset; you are a lost boy looking to find your sister whilst experiencing mind blowing traps, puzzles and near death experiences along the way through an intelligent horror story. The moment you are immersed within this artistic masterpiece you do soon forget about looking for your sister because of your own need for survival. You will encounter other characters briefly, but they only mean you harm. Where » Continue Reading.

Joining Mr. Wheaton is Ashly Burch, Laura Bailey, Yuri Lowenthal, Cassandra Lee Morris, Rachel Robinson, and Cindy Robinson.
