Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is a heart-pumping blast from start to finish

There are games in which I just sit down, buckle up, and accept just about every crazy thing they throw at me, because they are just ridiculously fun and entertaining. A series which earned that place in my book is Wolfenstein. Ever since I was a kid, it’s been part of my gaming curriculum, starting with the very “first” Wolfenstein on a 486 computer my family used to own. True, the franchise’s real inception took place much earlier than that, with Castle Wolfenstein in the early 1980s, but it was Wolfenstein 3D that really put the series’ name on everyone’s mind. Fast-forward a couple of decades and a few entries later, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, the sequel to the brilliant Wolfenstein: The New Order further proves that Machine Games knows what they’re doing — there has never been a more balls to the wall...

Checking out 11bit Studios at BGS 2017

Brazil Game Show 2017 was in full swing a couple of weeks ago, and I stopped by 11bit Studios’ charming booth to check out their wares on display.

I sat down with 11bit’s senior marketing manager Karol Zajaczkowski as he walked me through the motions of getting a town up and running. Frostpunk already made a fantastic first impression with its presentation alone, but the gameplay also helped keep my attention in the noisy hall of BGS, thanks to some potentially cruel opportunities that a temporary leader like myself...

Between the tee and the lie, between the break and the fly, between the green and the sky, there’s Everybody’s Golf

In the world of gaming, the sport of golf has occupied a rather unique space. There are often two main types of golf games, generally: those focused on a realistic, accurate depiction of the sport as it is played in real life, and the fanciful versions that journey into the world of magical realism. It’s a bit of an odd notion that Everybody’s Golf, one of the more recent interpretations of the sport, manages to blend accuracy with flash and style. It isn’t a flawless marriage by any means, but it is a lovely and relaxing game of golf. What’s more important is that it’s also a lot of fun as well. Everybody’s Golf is the newest iteration of Hot Shots Golf, only with a more wholesome and inclusionary new moniker, so if you’re familiar with and enjoy that series, you’ll feel right at home...
