Geek Pride Interviews BattleTech creator Jordan Weisman

by Peter Ray Allisonon 17/06/2016
BattleTech is the long-running wargame first created by Jordan Weisman in 1984.  Unlike a lot of other sci-fi wargames at the time, BattleTech did not focus on the armoured infantry or hover tanks, but rather on the colossal bipedal war machines known as Battlemechs. Despite being over thirty years old, many of the core rules […]

Titanic: Honour and Glory’s stunning preview

by trekkiemarkon 22/04/2016
The very mention of her name conjures up visions of size, superiority and the futility of a mighty feat of human engineering. In 1912 the Titanic sailed her first and last voyage and remains a potent reminder of man’s complacency in the face of nature. The loss of over 1,500 people in the icy waters of […]

A Tale of UnEpic Proportions

by MrCraiggyon 16/04/2016
If you hadn’t guessed by now, I’m somewhat partial to a good adventure. I like to go to new places, I like to experience new things, I like the fantasy and wonderment of literature, film and game. It’s no surprise then that when a game such as UnEpic comes along, it pops up on my […]

Last week, 2K teased us with the word ‘Advent’, and an advertisement for a seemingly utopian society. As details were released, it became apparent that  a supposedly near-future government called the Advent Administration offered a better life for citizens through genetic enhancement.

Republique: Remastered Review

by Sai Mealingon 13/03/2015
When does an indie game stop being an indie game? This was a question I found myself wondering several times during my playthrough of Republique: Remastered, a full-HD PC and Mac port of the episodic mobile game from 2013. Funded by a Kickstarter campaign that almost didn’t make it, the mobile versions were a massive […]
