ArmA 3 Wasteland

The ArmA engine is not the most flexible thing in the world, but it is very opened ended, and it’s sandbox editor lends itself to modding. To coin a phrase that will make the folks at Webster sigh and the folks at Budweiser sue for copyright infringement, it has “modability”. This modability has transferred over to the next title in the series, ArmA 3....

Company of Heroes: Eastern Front Mod 1.700

The Eastern Front mod's team have just released version 1.700 and its only getting better.

Lost Under The Snow

Puzzle games are tricky things. The creators have to get inside the mind of their audiences more than perhaps any other genre, to predict what their behavior is going to be when faced with a certain set of circumstances. Valve is a legendary dabbler in this field. If you have ever listened to the developer commentary mode on Half-Life 2 and even Left 4 Dead,...

ArmA 2: Day Z Mod

If you’ve ever watched The Walking Dead, you know that aside from the severe emotional trauma and the possibility of being eaten alive, a zombie apocalypse is fun as hell. Suddenly nothing costs money, private property only exists under the point of a gun, and shooting that annoying neighbor is totally justified. Aside from your dysfunctional/plucky/murderous...

Company of Heroes: Modern Combat

Company of Heroes: Modern Combat is something I’ve been waiting a long time for. It’s a total conversion/user-created expansion pack (in the vein of Eastern Front) that has been in development for more than four and a half years, and was just released on the 13th of March. There have already been three patches in the time since then Although the core...

Dynamic Zombie Sandbox v.95

Dynamic Zombie Sandbox is a coop multiplayer modification for ArmA 2 that includes a series of missions in which the group must complete varied objectives, which is exactly like the vanilla game except that this time you’re in the dark and surrounded by thousands of flesh eating ghouls. The new .95 release fixes a lot of the bugs that came with the previous...

Kerbal Space Program Modding

Kerbal Space Program is one of those games that has probably flown under your radar until now. It doesn’t have its own “pay-whatever-you-feel-like-maaan” bundle, and you won’t find it on Steam. Despite this its one of the most addicting applications I’ve played in quite a while. The object of the game is rocket creation, to which end there...

Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius Review

There are those who say that the long lineage of space combat sims has no living heir, that the ideas once championed by the likes of “X Wing Vs Tie Fighter”, “Wing Commander” or even ” Star Trek: Bridge Commander ” have been lost to the ages. When I encounter those people, I have to resist a persistent urge not to slap...

Jumping the Bandwagon: The Stanley Parable

More like it's own genre then a Mod, The Stanley Parable will hopefully trigger a new era in gaming where actions are just as important as the story written out to them.

Singing songs of horror with Portal – Vocaloid Edition

Obviously without any sort of new content beyond asset replacements, Portal Vocaloid Edition fills the void that only strange and robotic J-Pop can provide.
