Free-to-Play Review: Star Conflict

Author: Jay-Rey (@jay_rey)

(Sample Ship via Star-conflict.com)

Game: Star Conflict
System: PC (Steam)
Players: Single, multiplayer (online mode only)
Price: Free-to-play (paid DLC is available)
Rating: 8/10 warp drives. Would participate in the Kessel Run

On Sunday, Kotaku reported about a massive battle that happened between two of the biggest faction in EVE Online. Now, I have never played EVE, but the general consensus is that the game is much more fun to read about than to play. What makes me interested is the idea of large scale spaceship warfare. We all got a hint of that while playing Rogue Squadron on N64, and Star Wars continued the trend in Battlefront 2.

Here is a quick rundown of a couple of games I bought from the Steam Holiday Sale (both big and small games) that you may want to keep your eye on for future sales!

Rating: 9/10

I just finished up my review on Batman Arkham Origins’ multiplayer. The verdict? Eh. Much like B:AO’s multiplayer, Lego Marvel Super Heroes can also be summed up in one syllable: Wow. I am in love and I don’t care who knows it! I haven’t enjoyed a video game this silly since the first Lego Star Wars. Maybe I have a slight Lego fetish, but that’s a story for a different blog. And now, on to the review. Continue reading

After completing the main campaign for Arkham Origins, running around the city to get little items from Enigma, and beating up Black Mask and Penguin thugs just didn’t excite me. So I decided to do what no person has done, at least on this blog: Play Online! Continue reading

Jingle bells, Batman smells… OF FEAR!!! It’s Christmas Eve in Gotham and Batman is the Santa the city deserves. He’s got a list a mile long and plenty of coal to dish out. We have an all-star cast of heroes and villains here in Gotham, so let’s have the Bat plane drop us off so that we can explore Batman Arkham Origins!
