Wildstar was a game I enjoyed greatly when it first came out, but which fell foul of one of the MMO’s biggest issues as a genre: playing solo became quite boring, and I ended up giving up before I got too far due to there being fewer players in my level range doing any of the content. This was mostly problematic because I was very slow at levelling, but higher level players had no real reason to come back to my zones and so I was left exploring by myself. Now that it’s gone free2play this week, I’m really hyped to try it again.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, Elite: Dangerous fans, you’ll know that there’s a little event going on right now called CQC Mayhem, or alternatively just Mayhem for short. This event is packed full of challenges, streams, and most importantly MAYHEM! Cough. I’m sorry, that was cheesy.
Anyway, all of these activities are taking place on the 1.4 stress test server, and to celebrate I will be streaming some CQC this evening with three immensely talented pilots and streamers: KateClick, G33kGrrly_Gaming and RheaAyase (the latter of which is a total beast in combat and definitely one to look out for!) Make sure you’re following all of them on Twitch for amazing Elite: Dangerous gameplay and also a wide variety of other games too.
I recently received a copy of Soul Axiom from the kind folks at Wales Interactive, and after hearing it was a sci-fi adventure game with a bit of a creepy twist, I was instantly intrigued. You guys know I absolutely love creepy games, and I’ve been on a real cyberpunky sci-fi kick lately, so this seemed right up my alley!
The game opens with your character falling through the sky and landing unceremoniously on a spectral looking ship. You don’t know anything about yourself or where you are, but some exploration starts to reveal the basics of the game, and no sooner had I started to feel comfortable with my surroundings than a giant woman with wings let out a bird-like shriek and started ripping my spectral looking ship apart!
