Company of Heroes: PC Game Review

Gameplay
Company of Heroes is a well balanced game with the Allies having great units and the Axis having some of the toughest tanks pre-Opposing Fronts (The expansion to CoH). Each side has three different Armed Branches or Doctrines which allow you to access diverse powerups, troops and bonuses, like the American Airbourne Branch get Paratroopers which will basically destroy anything, and the German propaganda branch gives access to abilities that send the enemy troops literally running.
However, when I play CoH I just get the feeling that it is just a skinned version of Dawn of War (Relic’s previous game), because Company of Heroes has just expanded upon that game and not really introduced enough new content.
8/10

Graphics
The graphics in CoH is simply superb, with cities rendered well even if the graphics are set to lowest. This is also true for the units, as you can see the mud on the front of the tanks and the pistols on the soldiers’ hips.

But this is all well and good if you have a new computer; unfortunately it does not run too well on lower spec computers as I have experienced on one of my computers :(.
8/10

Sound
The voice acting for the units is excellent and makes the game feel so much more believable, as you hear the troops yelling context-based dialogue such as “Fuck, they got us pinned down”, or “We’re really getting beaten up by that Panzer!”.
9/10

Level Design
The levels are based upon the Western front of World War 2 and have had a lot of time poured into their creation. In my opinion, the factory and urban based maps are better than the country side ones, but thats probably because I am a defensive player and prefer to limit the ways the enemy can attack me.
8/10

Replay ability
The replay ability of CoH is awesome, as maps offer many different ways to win and the different branches of each side can really add the random factor into games that many games are missing (Warcraft III for example). Playing online is also a great way to expand the replay ability of CoH as everybody online has a different tactic to crush you into the dust 😛
10/10

Overall game score:8.6

Company of Heroes = Totally Awesome
Worth Purchasing!

Everything you Should Know About Clash Royale

Gaming is no longer a symbol of geeks. It has become synonymous with coolness. Playing FIFA and Assassins Creed, especially the editions that had come out recently have become a symbol of your awesomeness. This is also one of the reasons why PlayStations and X-Boxes had become famous. And having the financial power to buy for yourself these big gaming consoles that are not portable was a matter of pride. But things have changed lately. In this age of Information, Smartphones and tablets have become so handy. So are the games that you can play on these smartphones. This is the age of Mini Militia where you play games with your friends, not on the ground, but connected over Wi-Fi or over the internet. These games define your coolness on this whole other level.

One such game that can be a symbol of your awesomeness is Clash Royale. Imagine Clash of Clans, but only cooler and much more advanced.  The Clash Royale Hack: Clash Royale Free Gems will never get old, but what is the point in knowing how to play without knowing what you are playing with.

Features of Clash Royale

The game has several features.

  1. Shop: The favorite of the game developers would be the shop feature. This is where you can shop, even if it is with virtual money. The items available at the shop generally include cards, gold and gems as well as treasure chests, and let us not forget the special offers that are available. With Card price calculators and the count calculator, shopping is fun without having to cram your head with boring math.
  2. Player Profile: Details about the player, such as tournament and player statistics and experience level as well as battle deck can be found here. But this is not the only spot for this though. You can also find it at the Battle Tab. The clan the player is a part of can also be seen.
  3. TV Royale: To view the battle between two players, just like you would go to the TV in real life, you go to TV Royale in Clash Royale. The battle can be replayed once in an hour, and it will be unavailable for replay in 24 hours, which means there can be 24 replays. When clanmates battles are on TV Royale, you could get the notifications.
  4. Screen Hints: Let us face it, what wouldn’t we give to have small hints that pop up everywhere in real life? And this is exactly what this app capitalizes on. The hints are however more for the sake of humor than for helping the user out.

Sega Lifts the Lid on Space Siege

Recently we got the chance to talk with the folks at Sega about Space Siege. I want to thank Denny for making the interview happen.
GVK: What is the background and setting for the game?

Space Siege is an action/role-playing game from Gas Powered Games. Set in the future, it starts with an alien invasion of Earth. The aliens successfully destroy the planet, but a few colony ships manage to escape. The player’s character, Seth Walker, is onboard the Armstrong, and it serves as the setting for the game. Unfortunately, the aliens-called the Kerak-are able to attach a pod to the ship, so the first task is to get rid of the invading aliens.

GVK: What are some of the units featured and their abilities and can you talk about the ability to customize your character and the repercussions that this can have in game?

There are a number of enemies in Space Siege, from different types of the Kerak to some surprise enemies.

While you can’t change your character’s general appearance, you can upgrade your visual look by acquiring different armor and weapon upgrades. The game’s biggest customization option is choosing whether or not to install various cybernetic upgrades. This choice forces you to decide how much you’re willing to sacrifice your own humanity in order to save humanity. The choices you make affect your character’s stats and give you different “pure” or “cyber” abilities.

GVK: What can you tell us about the A.I. players in the game and how they will interact with the player character?

In the earliest parts of the game, you rescue a number of characters who play important roles as the story develops. You have conversations with these characters throughout the game, as they’re back at a “home base” area trying to research the Kerak and determine what’s going on in other parts of the Armstrong.

GVK: How is resource management handled and will players be able to trade and salvage?

Players can find cybernetic pieces and weapons in the environment, and creatures drop “parts,” which can be used to upgrade your character at workbenches.

GVK: What can you tell the readers about how the Robot Sidekicks will be used in game?

Seth’s robotic companion is a Hodgsons Robotics Unit Mark V; “HR-V” for short. HR-V can be customized to use different weapons the player can find in the game. Proper use of HR-V is vital to a player’s eventual success.

GVK: What sort of weapons will players be able to use and how is combat handled in the game?

Combat uses a point-and-click interface; select your target, and fire away. There are a half-dozen weapons in the game, and each can be upgraded to add additional damage.

GVK: How will players save their progress in game?

The game auto-saves every time a player uses one of the health stations, which are liberally placed on each level, but players are free to save their progress at any point of the game.

GVK: What forms of Multiplay will the game offer?

The game has one multiplayer mode, which consists of a unique set of co-operative missions for 2-4 players that are set on a different ship. You create a multiplayer character that can be saved for future multiplayer games, with all of your upgrades and “parts” intact.
