Partisans 1941 Is A Modern Version Of Commandos.

In the late 90s I wore out my PC keyboard from overplaying the much-loved stealth orientated game Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines.

I was obsessed with the game and went on to play subsequent sequels of the franchise but always found myself returning to the original. There was something about it’s isometric viewpoint and its heavy reliance on tactics which gave me chills.

Now, more than 20 years later, it appears we have a suitable replacement in the form of a new game called Partisans 1941. The game is developed by Russian studio Alter Games and instead of playing a collection of special soldiers you will assume the role of a group of partisans fighting behind enemy lines.

As the eight minute demo below details the game shares a lot in common with Commandos. No word yet on a release date but my keyboard is prepped and ready to take an absolute pounding.

Tim Rogers Hilariously Dissects Red Dead 2

Personally speaking I think Rockstar’s latest open world game Red Dead Redemption 2 is sublime and a shining example of how games are overtaking movies and TV as a form of immersive storytelling.

Yes I have questioned why I’ve spent time stacking virtual bales of hay or lifting virtual sacks of grain or rooting through a virtual chest of drawers for a virtual tin of hair pomade, but the detail, story and level of immersion has me utterly fixated.

That being said there are problems in Red Dead 2 and who better to highlight these than Kotaku’s very own sardonic Tim Rogers. Just let this man review every game from now on.

50 Minutes Of Fallout 76 Gameplay.

Game developer Bethesda are releasing their latest entry in the Fallout gaming franchise next month, but tech website Gamespot managed to record 50 minutes of their early Fallout 76 experience and were kind enough to share it with the world.

The game looks fantastic and in our personal opinion any fears we may have had about the franchise losing it’s allure, now multiplayer has been introduced, dissipated.

Although this title and it’s fresh direction still seems to divide opinion among fans.

Latest Red Dead 2 Gameplay Demo Details Its Scale.

Rockstar Games released the second, and what might be the last, gameplay video of their forthcoming title Red Dead Redemption 2 yesterday and gaming fans were not left disappointed.

The four minute video revealed more details about the various activities a player can do, raning from large scale bank and train robberries to playing poker and fishing.

It’s the sheer scale of pursuits and undertakings which looks to set Red Dead 2 aside from the rest, making it one of the most ambitious open world games from Rockstar yet.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is released October 26th.

Here’s 48 glorious minutes of gameplay footage of the forthcoming, highly anticipated, RPG game Cyberpunk 2077.

The game has been developed and published CD Projekt, the company responsible for the hugely successful Witcher game series, and is adapted from the popular tabletop board game Cyberpunk 2020.

Battlefield V Trailer Pushed Bro Gamers Over The Edge.

Last night, live on YouTube the new Battlefield game trailer was revealed and like everything nowadays there soon followed much foaming at the mouth and spitting of rage.

A certain section of gamers and fans of the series went apocalyptic over the use of a female character in the trailer, raging at the developers for being ‘historically inaccurate’ with the new content, because it featured a woman.

Last night, live on YouTube the new Battlefield game trailer was revealed and like everything nowadays there soon followed much foaming at the mouth and spitting of rage.

A certain section of gamers and fans of the series went apocalyptic over the use of a female character in the trailer, raging at the developers for being ‘historically inaccurate’ with the new content, because it featured a woman.

It didn’t matter that tanks careered through buildings, trucks were dropping out of the sky, planes were crashing all around whilst soldiers, complete with facepaint, biker jackets, mohawk hair and metal prosthetic hands were jumping through top floor windows unscathed. No, these excessive, disproportionate details were fine, it was the inclusion of a female character which shat all over every aspect of the ‘historical accuracy’ this game was selling.

It’s a fucking video game with over-the-top action which is engineered to excite and entertain the player and the only true way this can be achieved is when reality is detached. Unsurpisingly the trailer took a beating on social media with bro-gamers using the hashtags #genderfield and #notmybattlefield.

Fans, who weren’t gagging on their toxic masculinity, were delighted to learn that the new Battlefield game won’t have a pay to win system or premium pass, meaning loot boxes won’t feature and once you buy the game any additional content will be free. Personally we can’t wait to see more.

Battlefield V is scheduled for release on Ocotber 19th.

GTA:V Fan Film Starring Steven Ogg aka Trevor.

 

Ever since the release of Rockstar’s sandbox, open-world game Grand Theft Auto V we’ve kept a close eye on the rise of actor Steven Ogg.

Ogg, who provided the voice and was motion captured for the game’s deranged and depraved protagonist Trevor, has since popped up filling out roles in Better Call Saul, The Walking Dead and more recently Westworld and his latest appearance in a viral fan film for GTA:V is garnering a load of attention.

Ogg once again reprises his gaming role of Trevor but this time in the flesh as he guides a player around the virtual reality version of the hit game.
