How ‘Quake’ Helped Define the Gaming Industry

Before Counterstrike, Unreal  Tournament, and League of  Legends, we had Quake—a first-person shooter game in 1996 that inspired many of the best titles in modern gaming. In fact, when IGN  interviewed creative director Tim Willits during Quake’s anniversary  in 2015, he commented, “If you look at games today, and if you look at the shape of the video game industry, Quake was actually more influential than Doom was.” And Doom introduced a lot of new things, from mod scenes and pseudo-3D graphics, to AI and action multiplayer. To say that another game is more superior—and one that came after Doom, at

Joggernauts Review

Joggernauts is an infinite runner with a deceptive childish flairStory:You (or your friends if you have any) have crash-landed on a planet where you will be jogging for your life!Gameplay:Since I myself have only had single player to go off of, this will not be a comprehensive review of the party game elements.My first impressions of the game were actually really fun. I've played bitrunner before for a brief amount of time and thought myself competent at infinite runners.Nope.The first world was challenging but doable, but afterward, I got absolutely reamed. The game is fairly simple, you have a blue character

Citadel: Forged with Fire Review

Citadel: Forged with Fire is pitched as a huge, online sandbox RPG with light survival elements, base-building, magic and the ability to tame and ride fantastical creatures. The DNA of survival games like Rust, Ark: Survival Evolved, Conan Exiles and more run thick through it, although with nothing but a relentless, soul-destroying grind awaiting you, particularly if you are playing on your own.There is a slicker, more attractive presentation than some of its inspirations, and the draw of forging your path as a newly minted wizard to the likes of an all powerful Battle-Mage riding a Dragon or Phoenix into battle

Streets of Rogue Review

Play as a vampire, hacker, gorilla, bartender, or 22 other characters in this weird, great roguelike.On my first run, I'm an assassin, backstabbing enemies and slinging shuriken. Then I'm a jock, barrelling through walls and swinging a baseball bat. Next, I'm a gorilla, flanked by three other primates, tearing scientists apart with my bare hands in the middle of downtown. Somehow, I avoid the patrolling cops on that last one, probably because I’d injected two of my companions with an invisibility serum—plus, there was a riot in the streets, turning the level into a mosh pit of gang fights, enraged shop

The Upcoming Death of Two Decade’s Worth of Browser Games

Adobe Flash is one of the last remaining multimedia applications for web browsers still functional on popular browsers. In its wake are other applications such as Adobe Shockwave, Microsoft Silverlight, Unity Web Player and Java Applets – all which have since been completely discontinued or are on their last legs. But this doesn’t mean the future is looking any brighter for Flash, Adobe plan to completely cut support for it by the end of 2020 and large browsers such as Google’s Chrome, Mozilla’s Firefox and Microsoft’s Edge plan to follow suit and remove functionality with their browsers before the year is up.What this
