The History of Gearbox & How Their Games Began

Gearbox Software was founded in 1999 by Randy Pitchford, Brian Martel, Stephen Bahl, Landon Montgomery and Rob Heironimus, all former developers of the cringingly-named studio “Rebel Boat Rocker”, a studio that never managed to release a single game. Before this, core members of the group worked for studios such as 3D Realms and Bethesda Softworks.Gearbox’s first few projects might come as a surprise to some, being a mostly unproven studio without a single game to their name up to this point outside of their early efforts in well-established studios (which might be what got them the gig). Developing official expansions and

Review: The Crows Eye

This game is odd  The Crow's Eye is developed by 3D2 Entertainment in March 20th, 2017. I have found one previous game made under their name, and a new one coming soon named Arima. Oh yeah, and before I forget, this is the aforementioned previous one:Story  You play as an estranged child confined within a long abandoned college, under duress by a morally bankrupt scientist. I didn't find the story too interesting, but mostly because what I found is in audio logs, and I tend to have trouble focusing on them in particular while I am doing tasks. You won't feel

The Weird World of Peripheral Rhythm Games

Peripheral instrument-based rhythm games really became a thing (at least in the west) during the mid-2000s, with Red Octane’s (and later Activison’s) ‘Guitar Hero’ title for the Playstation 2. But between 1999 and 2007 Konami had already been releasing various versions of their GuitarFreaks, DrumMania, KeyboardMania and BeatMania games for Playstation consoles in Japan. Konami continues to release sequels to the arcades as late as 2018, more recently under the ‘Gitadora’ name.The genre was relatively successful (if not saturated) between 2005 and 2010, before having a final stab at reinvigorating its fan base in 2015, where it soon fizzled out once

Warhammer 40000: Mechanicus Review

There have been more and more games released in recent years based onGames Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000 universe, which is certainly harder for non-fans to digest than the much more easy-to-swallow orcs and dwarves and heroes of 40K’s fantasy counterpart. Anything featuring Space Marines would be relatively simple to get your head around, but the rank and file soldiers of this universe are the least interesting aspect. Games likeWarhammer 40K: Inquisitor – Martyrfocus instead on the less flashy elements, and Warhammer 40000: Mechanicus from Bulwark Studios does the same.The Adeptus Mechanicus are the tech-worshipping space wizards of this particular universe, a mix
