P.A.M.E.L.A. Early Access Review

P.A.M.E.L.A. is one of the most visually solid games on Steam today, in the indie market — and possibly including AAA as well. There was a rash of bad reviews for crashing and loading issues, but the issues were fixed very quickly thereafter. Even with a small development team, NVYVE Studios has produced one of the most polished Early Access games I’ve seen, and it bodes well for the future of the title and the studio.

Planet Nomads Early Access Review

Given that Planet Nomads is in alpha, some of the issues get a pass, but there are other, more serious optimization problems with this title, and the building mechanic is borderline terrible. Movement felt delayed, graphics looked choppy more often than not when moving, and the game went through a serious bout of crashing until I switched to a windowed-only view.
There’s a lot of room for improvement for this title, but the foundation the devs have built is workable. Keep your eyes on Planet Nomads going forward, but be wary; your expectations might not be met if you jumped into the game now.

Edengrad Early Access Review

Ultimately, server issues and stability have hampered Edengrad’s initial release. Were Edengrad a standalone offline game, it would be an ‘OK’ game. The problem is that Edengrad isn’t, though, and as an online game, server performance is mandatory — arguably the most important feature, even. The crashes, the lost characters, the performance dips, and more make this game unplayable.

Funcom Kicks Off its First Sale for Conan Exiles

New players get to enjoy 24 updates worth of new content, new features, and improvements since Early Access launch in January.

Impact Winter Will Be Launched on May 23rd, 2017

The post-apocalyptic survival adventure is going to arrive on May 23rd , 2017 on PC Digital. This will give more time to pre-order the PC Digital version and get the exclusive soundtrack created by composer Mitch Murder.

Quarantine Early Access Review

As of now, Quarantine doesn’t do enough to distinguish itself from others in the strategy genre, but the potential is there: Quarantine could easily polish up and add more content to boost replayability, creating a much more fulfilling gaming experience.

Northern Regime Early Access

Flintlock Studios presents us with a fascinating and entertaining concept, one that could bring a much-welcomed spotlight to a period of American History often overlooked. Yet considering the fierce competition out there, the limited size of the studio, and more importantly, the current state of the game, Northern Regime isn’t off to a promising start. I’m rooting for the British Columbia-based studio, but it’s got a long way to go until it's ready for a full release. A significant amount of work has to be put in before Northern Regime can be considered a quality Early Access game.

The Wild Eight Early Access Review

All in all, The Wild Eight is a relatively inexpensive addition to the Survival genre, and it's one that comes with a lot of potential. Even as it stands, The Wild Eight is an excellent choice for players who want to face the wilderness with a group of friends, and watching your loved ones’ avatars get gored to death by wild boars certainly breaks up the monotony of foraging.

Conan Exiles Early Access Review

I’m looking over at the clock, watching hours roll by, and I can’t stop. Despite being Early Access, Conan Exiles is already capable of standing up against any other open-world survival game currently released, and I'm excited to see what Funcom has in store.

Phoning Home Review

Phoning Home is an excellent example of what happens when developers think outside the box of their genre(s). While there are dozens of Sci-Fi themed Survival game option for players to choose from, ION LANDS has blended a remarkable combination of elements to create a saga that stands out from the crowd.

Conan Exiles Early Access - AAA Anonymous Epi. 9

With AAA Anonymous, we discuss our latest AAA game addiction for a handful of months, until the next one replaces it. This episode is the on the release of Funcom's Early Access release of their survival game, Conan Exiles.

Nyheim Review

Nyheim is a strikingly illustrated dice-rolling game which emphasizes the challenging survival element inherent in any post-apocalyptic title. While the difficulty seems challenging at first, once you have established certain strategies, Nyheim risks feeling repetitive.

Diluvion Review

Diluvion tugs at the soul of the land-bound adventurer who longs to experience the mysteries of the deep. It ties together RPG elements, resource management, combat, and the salty appeal of a marine environment in a brilliant blend of whimsical and exciting.

Judgment: Apocalypse Survival Simulation Early Access Review

Suncrash makes Hell-on-Earth seem divine. While the visuals are plain and the combat can be cumbersome, the simulation and management aspects of the game are well thought-out and elegant. With rich, immersive gameplay and various difficulty settings, Judgment promises to pull in fans of the genre and newcomers alike.

White Noise 2 Early Access Review

I’d love to see them add a few more maps, and even some more monster types, but as it stands White Noise 2 Early Access has a great foundation. It’s ready to play, providing fantastic teamwork and plenty of scares, and I will certainly be coaxing more friends into playing with me in the near future.

H1Z1: King of the Kill Early Access Review

If you’ve never played King of the Kill, there has never been a better time than now to try it out and see what the hype is all about. If you’ve played previously, then there’s plenty of new and improved features here for you try out.

Near Death Review

The experience of actually surviving Antarctica in a realistic simulation affords Near Death a sense of immersion that few entertainment mediums can achieve. With the exceptional visuals and damn near, if not perfect audio, Near Death is a game that is worth the price in money and time. Pick it up, turn on your flashlight, and don’t stop until you’re inside.

Dead Age Early Access Review

Dead Age is a must have for any RPG fan who has always hoped for a post-apocalyptic theme replete with realistic graphics and an awe-inspiring soundtrack.

Dead by Deadlight: Because I Absolutely Love This Game

Behaviour Interactive has overdone itself with giving us Dead by Daylight. Every time I play my heart pumps and I feel the thrill of being scared or frightened. Everyone should at the very least give it a try. You will be scared, frightened, thrilled, excited, and have other sudden emotional changes as you are hounded down by randoms serial killers online. Enjoy.
