‘Chivalry: Medieval Warfare’ is an action adventure, multiplayer game that is set in an environment and game world resembling medieval times. As the world is modelled after the European Middle Ages, the combat techniques within the game reflect the same style. As such, maces, swords, boiling oil, catapults, crossbows and longbows, among other medieval weapons, are what are primarily used within the game.
Developed by Tango Gameworks, ‘The Evil Within’ is also known in Japan by the name ‘Psycho Break’. It is a game that falls into the horror genre, and it is a survival game. There is plenty of fighting in this game, and it is played from the “third person” point of view.
Like ‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Tales from the Borderlands’ video games, ‘The Wolf Among Us’ is an episodic video game.

The game is a point and click game and is based on the “Fables” comic book series by Bill Willingham. ‘The Wolf Among Us’ follows the canon of this comic book series, and is set up as a prequel or prelude to the actual comics.
Minecraft is far from a new game. It’s been around for years. But the beauty of this game is that it still regularly ranks among the top most popular video games – including this year.
Minecraft is essentially a construction or building game set in an open world. It started off as a video game where players could use building blocks to build constructions that were mainly shelters against monsters within the video game world. But as the game developed over the years, the simple building game that one could play among friends became much, much more than that. The gameplay expanded, and became more versatile and creative. And it helps that the building blocks used for construction within the game are beautifully textured 3D cubes. Continue reading “Minecraft: Building Blocks with Versatile Gameplay” »
There are some games out there . . . (OK, who am I kidding) . . . There are many games out there that, for the lack of a better adjective, are just downright addictive! We start on one level just for fun, or just to pass the time. And suddenly, we find that several hours have passed (or even an entire day!) – And even then we just keep thinking, “Just one more try!”, “Just one more level!”, or “Just one more hour!”
Needless to say, “one more” is definitely not what we stop with. Continue reading “Addictive is Thy Game! And How We Love it!” »

And this year, in December 2014, Sony PlayStation is offering ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us – Ultimate Edition’ as one of its freebie games!
