Evil Dead – the Game! Out in 2021

This looks awesome. I am a huge fan of the evil dead franchise and this by far looks like a faithful adaptation of not only the movies but also the smash hit TV series Ash Vs Evil Dead.

Great to see so many recognizable characters from all the movies and TV shows. The staple over the top gore is faithfully recreated in the game which in my opinion is going to make this an instant success.

GeForce RTX 2080 Gaphics

This is a quick snippet of what we can expect from next gen consoles and high spec PCs of the future.

The extremely high quality graphics match the extremely high price tag of the new GeForce graphics cards capable of rendering real time ray tracing and real time reflections.

As you can see from the GTA V example above, the power of the graphics card really does bring the game close to real life quality. Improved ambient occlusion, radiosity and raytracing are all parts of what makes this possible.

Games that will be designed specifically to run on these types of cards will of course be much better. I for one cannot wait to see these games!

Game of the Month: Guns ‘N Stories

Guns ‘N Stories: Bulletproof is a really enjoyable arcade style shooter for VR headsets. I bought this for the Oculus Rift and honestly can’t stop playing it.

Set in the wild west with a single six shooter in your right hand you have to hold off waves of enemies coming at you from all sides. The Oculus touch controllers are really accurate which makes gameplay so enjoyable.

A character voice over helps the story to progress, hence the ‘Stories’ of the title. Whatever he says goes, and he doesn’t have such a great memory. As you progress you get two six shooters, then you get different arsenals of weapons including space age weapons that haven’t even come out yet.

What is fun about this approach is that the story is based around someone’s imagination of what happened, which means anything goes – even alien spacecraft!

The settings are really immersive and just as fun and cartoony as everything else, making a fun arcade experience.

It’s not overly intense or difficult, which is probably why I like it. It’s a great stress buster. Put on the headset and get whisked away to the wild west and have a fun shootout for 30 minutes.

Hey, I think they should have something like this in the workplace…imagine that, want to chill out, shoot some bad guys in the wild west!

The game is available for all major VR headsets. It’s available on Steam and on the Oculus store:

Stranger Things 3: The Video Game

The game of the month isn’t actually out yet, but this is a great example of what you can achieve with pixel art graphics.

It’s a great idea that the video game for this 80s themed horror show should be a retro 80s style video game. I’m really excited to get my hands on this one.

Thanks to Darsh for bringing my attention to this one on his blog. Read his fantastic article on his site here:

Metal Slug: Game of the Month

Perhaps one of the greatest 2D games of all time, well, in my opinion anyway. I spent hours on this game when I was younger. It has great cartoony graphics, fun settings and exciting gameplay.

A great thing about this game was the ability to destroy parts of the background.

You can pickup a range of weapons including machine guns, rocket launchers, flame throwers and more.

At certain points in the game, you can jump into the tanks and move through the platforms destroying bad guys and helicopters or enemy tanks.
