Welcome to our Warhammer 40K Dark Imperium (Warhammer 40,000 or W40K) Review. This review is the first part of our ongoing Start Collecting Warhammer 40K series. The full details of the plans and thought-process behind the series can be read here. Combat in the 41st Millennium Warhammer 40K is the Daddy of wargaming. Games Workshop’s alpha wargaming system has reached into just about every other media genre out there. There are a huge amount of Warhammer 40K video games, there’s an animated movie, comics, novels, and there’s even a spin-off series of novels and games based on the history of Warhammer 40K. So even if you haven’t heard of wargaming, you’ve probably heard of Warhammer 40K through one medium or another Warhammer 40K is set in the 41st Century. Mankind has taken battle to the stars, led by legions of gene-enhanced, power-armor wearing warriors known as Space Marines. Previously in the setting, during an era known as the Horus Heresy, … [Read more...] about Warhammer 40K Dark Imperium Review – Start Collecting Warhammer 40K Part 1

Fantasy Flight Games have a long history with tabletop gaming in the Star Wars IP. They already have every other type of tabletop gaming covered with card games; dice games; role-playing games; X-Wing; which allows you to re-enact the space skirmish warfare that Star Wars is famous for; Armada, which took those space battles to a bigger scale and allowed you to play out entire fleet battles; and Imperial Assault, which combined a board game with roleplaying game elements and allowed to you fight small skirmish missions on the tabletop. With Star Wars Legion, Fantasy Flight Games are moving Star Wars fully into the wargaming hobby genre. There are several different groups of people that are going to be interested in this product, each for their own reasons, but we’re going to look at this product in three areas: The hobby side (the models themselves) As a stand-alone core box product (for those who want to dip in but not commit long term) The wargaming side (how the product … [Read more...] about Star Wars Legion Core Set Review – Pick Dark or Light and Go to War!
Maybe it's something about Renderware. It must be, right? 500 Agility Orbs in the Renderware-powered Crackdown, daring you to allow anything else in the game to rival those humming green treats for sheer narrative appeal. And in Burnout Paradise, another Renderware joint, 400 yellow crash gates. They're shortcuts ostensibly but, given the way they scatter on the wind in your wake, I suspect people would happily charge through them even if they lead to nowhere more exciting than a small out-of-hours pharmacy. 400 yellow gates, twinkling their lurid twinkle and lending a throbbing emergency-yellow shape to the wild city looping and tumbling around you. And 120 billboards to smash through. And 50 super jumps to super jump. And ten multi-storeys... Coming back to it after all these years, peeling out of the auto shop, mentally buckling in, physically shunting through the best worst soundtrack ever constructed in order to find the best worst song of them all - Avril Lavigne's Girlfriend - … [Read more...] about Burnout Paradise Remastered review
When it comes to Diablo, one should expect a sense of finality when an upgraded version features the word "Ultimate". After all, where do you go after defeating The Devil? Developer Blizzard's answer--in the Reaper of Souls expansion--was a villain that was the closest thing to Death. Unless the studio can come up with an expansion to vanquish a tax collector, it's safe to say that Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition is as final as it gets. Thanks to two years worth of PC version fixes, wise console-friendly UI adjustments, and a number of exclusive social features, this also happens to be the definitive version of Diablo III. Diablo III's bleakness is so comprehensive, one can't help but admire Blizzard's dedication. If you're not engaging in conversation with downtrodden and pessimistic townsfolk, you're fending off a seemingly limitless stream of demons. It feels all the more poignant when you walk on floors fully covered in corpses in Reaper of Souls. Given that the apocalyptic tone … [Read more...] about Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition Review
The Sega Genesis Flashback is an attempt to capture a seemingly new, or at least reinvigorated, market while also not being too ambitious. At $80, the same price as the Super Nintendo Classic Edition, the Genesis Flashback struggles to approximate the user experience of Nintendo’s throwback. Instead, it tries to best it with back-of-the-box bullet points that, while impressive sounding, do little to cement its superiority. Last year’s NES Classic Edition upended the low-end plug ‘n play console market, long dominated by a company called AtGames, which is responsible for the Atari and Genesis consoles littering checkout aisles everywhere. AtGames has been at this for a long time, but the low price is about the only thing easy to recommend on one of its consoles. Still, the company doesn’t have trouble moving units over the holidays. But when the NES Classic Edition happened, AtGames needed a response. HARDWARE The hardware is where the Sega Genesis Flashback … [Read more...] about Sega Genesis Flashback HD review
