CrossFire is one of the largest FPS games ever. Sure, it may not be popular in the Western countries, but there are far more gamers outside of those than in them. So I guess Crossfire Legion, ostensibly set in CrossFire universe, is for them.
This first version of this review was almost finished when my computer went for a scheduled shutdown, and the blog backend, which doesn’t autosave, took everything with it*. It’s all for the better, because this one will be newer, bolder, fresher – as fresh as a review of the new PC port of God of War – released four years after its console debut – can be.
Recently, Regiments launched a surprise open playtest. This threw a wrench into my Dad of Boy-playing plans. Luckily, the playtest is all about showing off the operations mode, so having finally completed it, I can pen these words and go back to crossing swords*.
Ach Scheiße, jetzt geht es wieder los. The third(!) Unity of Command 2 expansion in 2021, Stalingrad DLC, has us commanding Nazis again. They were stopped in 1941 and badly mauled in winter. But it’s 1942; time for payb- wait, the Fuhrer did what?!
I’ve been mad about Starship Troopers for quite some time – the movie adaptation felt like such a departure from the book. But then I learned to appreciate poking fun at the dumb fascist propaganda of “service guarantees citizenship.” Yet even then, I never understood the appeal of playing a Mobile Infantryman in the setting. So the Starship Troopers – Terran Command demo is a strange game to play, but it turns out that it is a good day to die!
World War 2 is an endless font of inspiration for developers who are only ever interested in the European theatre of operations. But The Troop demo at least focuses on the British and Canadians instead of making us storm Normandy as the Yanks again.
Simulator games are all the rage these days, whether they come from old and established series like Farm Simulator or new stuff like Gas Station Simulator. But as a Catholic, I’m overjoyed that we’re finally getting some representation with the Priest Simulator demo.
OK, time for me to get cancelled by one group or another, and thus halve my leadership (to two). This is the weirdest thing on the Steam Next table: Fursan al-Aqsa: The Knights of the al-Aqsa Mosque demo. The game isn’t even on the Steam store anymore (but you can still read the discussions to immediately die).
Back in the day when cutting edge FPS graphics meant having fancier sprites than other guy, Hexen was a notable standout since it gave you spells and magical axes instead of guns. Experience something like that as you follow your sister Into the Pit (demo).
Pssst! Hey kid, you want to shoot some weird fish? Then you’re looking for an old school FPS – one of the many that are cropping up these days – where you get to blast some of New England’s finest abominations. This is the Forgive Me Father demo.
