Home • PC Game News • FIGHTCRAB • 27 Dominic Tarason Contributor 7th March 2018 / 7:38PM FIGHTCRAB! You really can’t beat that title, both for accuracy and sheer satisfaction value in shouting it aloud, hence why I insist it be capitalized. The latest from oceanically obsessed Japanese indie outfit Nussoft (they of the quite bonkers Neo Aquarium: The King Of Crustaceans and its sequel, Ace of Seafood), FIGHTCRAB has been in the works for a while now, but yesterday they released their best chunk of gameplay footage yet. Within, CRABS. And they FIGHT. Really, what more could you ask for? FIGHTCRAB! Possibly a little less daft than their earlier games, but still charming in its aquatic oddness, FIGHTCRAB looks to be primarily a game of physics-driven underwater wrestling. Two crustaceans enter, one leaves, their foe embarrassingly up-ended and wobbling around on their back. Oh, and sometimes the crabs have bloody great medieval swords, … [Read more...] about FIGHTCRAB is a game about CRABS that FIGHT, okay?
Video games are obsessed with secrets. Not only ones like release dates and surprise sequel announcements, but the kinds that reward you for pausing to peer into a corner as others rush by on the way to their next objective. For one elaborate example, look at Wolfenstein: The New Order. It hid a perfect recreation of Wolfenstein 3D's first level within its hub area (just go up to BJ's sad little sleeping corner and take a nap to try it out). Then when Id Software went to start over fresh with Doom, it couldn't leave Machine Games' clever repurposing of its own decades-old assets unanswered.On the look outFor more mysteries, check out our look at game secrets that were almost never found."What they did with the nightmare, that was super inspirational for the way we handled the Doom secrets," game director Marty Stratton tells me during an interview at QuakeCon 2017. "It was definitely throwing down the gauntlet. 'We cannot not do something really, really cool!'"Behind me, Wolfenstein: … [Read more...] about It’s like “having a silent conversation with the player”: why video game makers love secrets
For the old school console fan, 2015 is a paradise of fresh delights. Axiom Verge oozes that classic console feeling when it starts up on PlayStation 4. The grinding wub-wub-wub of the distortion field weapon and its glitchy effects warping the blocky environment seem like they were lifted right out of 1989. The same is true of The Adventures of Pip. Played on a Wii U, the hero’s transformation from single block into increasingly detailed pixel dudes is practically a greatest hits tour through the transitions in tech from Atari 2600 to NES to SNES. Odallus even has those fetching scan lines right on the screen to mimic sitting in front of a CRT television. “Wait a second,” mutters the console purist, gently setting down her Jaguar controller. “Odallus is a PC game!”JoyMasher’s game only looks like a console game. Axiom Verve and Pip, despite being readily available on those slick little boxes with controllers that never need a keyboard and mouse to … [Read more...] about That Console Feeling: What defines console gaming in 2015?
DC dropped a bit of a bombshell by screening Wonder Woman for a select few this past weekend in California. Every member of the audience probably had to sign an NDA so, with that in mind, here are a lot of second-hand reactions and a handful of naughty audience-members who have given us a glimpse as to whether the upcoming movie starring Gal Gadot is any good or not.For the most part, the Wonder Woman reaction seems mostly positive. As always, take these screeners with a massive grain of salt (unless the audience members were wrapped in the Lasso of Truth) but, hey, people don’t lie, right?Loving everything I'm hearing from the #WonderWoman test screening. Have so much faith in this film, in @PattyJenks and @GalGadot! BRING IT! pic.twitter.com/oEUv5cXUDLFebruary 19, 2017Hearing very positive buzz around the #WonderWoman test screening. YESSSSSS! #dccomics #WonderWomanFebruary 19, 2017Some people, including someone who was reportedly there, have even suggested it’s the best … [Read more...] about Is Wonder Woman any good?
