Starpoint Gemini 3 puts players in the pilot’s seat

It looks like the just-announced Starpoint Gemini 3 will be a significant departure from Warlords, previous in Little Green Men’s space sim series. Rather than continue down the path of light 4X strategy and fleet management, the new game puts players into the cockpit of smaller craft. There’s first-person cockpits, and you’re able to meet […]

Who’ll stop the baby crying? Not me in One More Second

Competitive parents are awful, hurling obscenities and abuse from the sidelines of the local under-10s league, but I can sympathise with the parents competing in One More Second. It’s the middle of the night and their lousy baby is once again awake and bawling its head off. Both of this half-awake pair would adore even […]

Devil Engine thunders forcefully into stores with demo

I’ve always had an easier time playing ‘bullet hell’ shooters than more old-school ones like Devil Engine, which launched today. Enemies in those old shmups were positively ornery in their aggression, constantly pressuring the player with unpredictable mix-up attacks.

Trials Rising launches next Tuesday, February 26th, but anyone interested can take it for a free spin right now – Ubisoft are running an open beta running until just before launch.
