There’s always been a long and storied history of contempt, jealousy, anger and spite on the battlefield of the console wars. However, one lone faction has always tried to get into the fray to show that — while it may be more expensive, more rare and highly susceptible to egoist — the Glorious PC Gaming arena shines bright as a beacon of superiority over its home console counterparts. Continuing the trend of staying several steps ahead of the living-room enthusiast devices, Dell’s Alienware brand has stepped back onto the scene to showcase why the GPCGMR are here to stay.
Capcom is still a conductor on the milk train, moving each of their franchises (save for Mega Man) through a re-release phase, and they’re doing it again with Resident Evil with the HD remake coming to the seventh and eighth-gen consoles next year. On the bright side at least Capcom is working on a new game… even though it’s only just another sequel. Continue reading →
Oh, what’s this? There are actually games being discussed again here at One Angry Gamer? For a minute it seemed like everything went to a pit in a pot full of the piss of a cesspool. Thankfully, PAX Prime 2014 has been a nice mitigating factor to offset all the depressing news surrounding game culture. On the up-and-up games like Firewatch have been announced and it really helps add some levity to a very darkening situation surrounding the likes of #GamerGate. Continue reading →
With all the vitriol spewed over the past couple of days from out-of-touch, quasi-pseudo-aristocratic hipsters posing as games journalists, it’s nice to see something refreshing and positive in the industry. What am I talking about? I’m talking about Comcept’s latest trailer for the upcoming game Mighty No. 9… yep, that’s right, the same game that the gaming community, real gamers, contributed to when it was on Kickstarter in order to turn it into a reality. The whole project is a celebration of game culture and the latest trailer really hammers that point home when you see how people who love games help fund a game being made by people who love to create them.

Two new interesting games have launched on Steam (depending on what you define as interesting). The first is a classic sprite-based RPG from Aldorlea Games called Millennium 3: Cry Wolf. It’s the third game in a series that happened to be greenlit by gamers, where players assume the role of Marine, as she and her friends journey through the eastern part of the world to recruit members to the team and fight back against the Lords of Mystrock. Yeah, yeah, it sounds like a Saturday morning D&D cartoon; just remember gamers voted for it. Continue reading →
Steering clear of a bit of the toxic crap happening throughout the gaming industry at the moment, there are still some things worth getting excited about in the realm of having fun and partaking in interactive entertainment. That’s not to say that The Crew is a game worth getting excited about, but the new five minute gameplay video at least showcases a few more elements of gameplay that some people might find attractive in the MMO-style racing title. Continue reading →
White Guardian Studios has a brand new game on the way called Celestial Tear: Demon’s Revenge. The premise sounds pretty slick, as players take on the role of Sen, a heroine who forges a legacy with other formidable characters centered around the conflicts involving prejudice and racism on a war-torn planet. The game aims to strike a fine balance between character development, story and classic role-playing tactics. The graphics are somewhat surprising and the combat is a nice throwback to the turn-based mechanics. Continue reading →
I’ve grown increasingly impressed with the sort of stuff that’s being added /modded into Keen Software House’s Space Engineers. The game has grown increasingly large since the short time it’s been racking up the sales and growing its audience on Steam’s Early Access platform. The game is hailed as a better looking, physics-based version of Minecraft. Well, this not-quite-a-Minecraft-clone has been updated with some nifty new mods. Continue reading →
