VS Mode Coming to Killing Floor 2

Killing Floor started it’s life as a mod, with up to 6 players facing off against wave after wave of ZEDs only to face their creator, the Patriarch, at the end. In a market where competitive gaming is the focus of many games when Killing Floor got a stand alone release the cooperative nature of the game made it stand out. The games sequel, Killing Floor 2, looks to continue this tradition, but for those who like to put their friends in their places, you will be able to thanks to the reveal of an upcoming VS mode for the game.

During PC Gamers Weekender Event, several new features were revealed for Killing Floor 2, including new game mode and maps. With ZEDs coming in an array of forms, from the slow but numerous Clots to the stealthy and deadly Stalkers, players will soon be able to choose between playing as a human defending their life, and ZEDs who would be made all that much happier with the humans removal from the game. If that wasn’t enough, both the Patriarch and Hans (an additional boss that you have a chance of facing instead of the Patriarch) will both be playable as well.

In order to fend off the new threat, players will soon be able to equip the sniper perk class. With the lever action rifle and crossbow bringing deadly precision to the game followed only by the M14EBR, snipers will be able to quickly decimate the ranks with well-placed shots. The end result for a sniper though will be the new Horizon Tech Railgun, a weapon we can all but wait for.

In addition to this, two maps from Tripwires mapping content will also be included in the game soon. With Hostile Grounds looking to force you to survive wave after wave, Containment Station is an objective based map, forcing players to defend points and complete hidden objectives in order to survive.

Who’s Your Daddy is Easily the Weirdest Game in a Long Time

This has to be one of the most bizarre games ever created and yet it isn’t that bad either. In fact, it could be a fun and addictive game. We’ve seen weird games become a success before, such as Goat Simulator that didn’t have much to do with simulation at all, so maybe the same will work for Who’s Your Daddy.

The title Who’s Your Daddy reminds us more of a line from a cheap softcore movie than a game, but it is a new game. Behind this weird title is a game pits fathers against their babies, yes you read that right, in a 1 vs 1 match where you control either the father or the baby. Your job as the dad is to protect your kid from a horrific and deadly accident in your virtual home, just as in real life, whereas the second player is where it gets bizarre. The second player will control the baby with the mission to try to kill itself before the father can stop it. Now that’s a game principle that we haven’t seen before.

There are all kinds of hazards in a home from power outlets to poison, from ovens to trashcans, and much more, and you can explore all that in this weird game that started out as a fun idea before turning into something marketable.

The game has been successfully funded on Kickstarter, albeit with a small goal, and is now waiting to be greenlit on Steam. If you could see yourself play this game then you should head over to the Steam Greenlight section and vote for it.

Below you can watch the Kickstarter trailer where the man behind the game introduces it as well as some alpha-stage gameplay. Would you play this game or is it just a little too weird for you? Let us know in the comments.

Halloween Comes – Time For The Games To Come Out And Play

It’s that time of the year again for the ghosts and ghouls to come out and play. With Halloween soon approaching you may find yourself in need of some spooky activities. So why not, instead of watching a horror film, sit down and play a game. Become part of the story and enjoy yourself while feeling those familiar spooky chills. Listed below are but a few of the games you could play to keep that Halloween fear going all year round.


The Amnesia Series and SOMA

Two games, The Dark Descent and a Machine For Pigs, see you traversing a world where everything may not be as it seems. With nothing but your wits and bravery to help you survive explore and evade as creatures stalk you in the shadows and where the darkness may actually harm you.

At £26.99 for both games, or £14.99 each, there are many hours of gameplay to be had but be warned, there will be hairs standing atop your neck when your playing on these. If you feel like these games, why not SOMA from the same creators, featuring the same fear and horror set deep under the sea.


FEAR 3

A little more action that the Amnesia series, see the aftermath of a series of games and this time you can bring friends. Enjoy the story with a friend tagging along or enjoy a cooperative survival in a misty battlefield featuring everything from hell hounds and mechs to ghostly soldiers.

Aptly named Contractions, in waves you will face increasing difficulty enemies while gaining more weapons and facing an arena which will slowly cover with greater depths of fog as the waves increase. Not feeling up for surviving in a corner? Why not try getting from point A to point B while avoiding a literal wall of death? With many options for players, there is nothing quite like hearing a spooky little girl laugh only to hear your friend scream seconds later as they are teleported across the map into the middle of a horde.

If you are interested, check the game out here.


Slender: The Arrival

Originally a free game, designed to prove a concept that you could have a game without guns and combat, Slender gained fame when players faced the challenge of running through a forest to collect several pieces of paper, easy right? Slenderman likes to do things in style, appearing behind that tree so you can just make out the white head and black suit, the static of your camera playing as he approaches you from behind, your heart beating faster and faster. Like Amensia, it will see you finding new ways to survive when fighting isn’t an option, why not gather your family and friends and see who can last the longest before stepping away from the game. Currently, I have yet to fully complete the game so why not try beat my efforts and check it out here.


Ghost Master

Halloween doesn’t have to be all about the fear and scares. Ghost Master looks to reunite you with that childish fun and imagination that all those scary stories used to bring us joy with. The concept is a simple one, you are a ghost master. With an arsenal of ghosts and horrors at your disposal complete objectives and scare people what isn’t there to like?

Summon an elemental and flood the room, use a poltergeist and scare hospital staff, your imagination is your best friend and their worst nightmare. At £4 on GOG you don’t have an excuse to not even look at the page do you?


Dungeon Keeper 2 And Evil Genius

Why be scared when you can be evil? Dungeon Keeper sees you order your minions to expand your caves and wealth while fighting off mighty knights but also gives you the option to possess your minion, running them into the fight with an evil smile on your face. So why evil genius? It’s for all you bond fans who imagined what it would be like to rule the world from a secret lair, with everything from henchmen to super weapons there isn’t anything quite like finding that the agents of good tripping all those well-placed traps, or on occasion a rather dumb minion.

At £4 for Dungeon Keeper 2 (Currently £1.39 thanks to a sale) and £4 for Evil Genius, why not be the bad guy just once?


Five Nights at Freddies Series

So you started that new job as a night security job, remember that Ben Stiller film Night at the Museum with everything coming to life? Sounds pretty awesome right, so what happens when they aren’t quite so friendly? Those fun-loving robots that entertain the children during the day want to scare the adult during the night, so why not play their little game of peek a boo, just be warned if you don’t see them quick enough, things won’t be all fun and games.

£18.99 will grab you all four games, or the original will set you back £3.99 with the next three costing £5.59 each.


Damned

The last in the list sees you and four friends (or complete strangers) wander from Hospitals to Hotels, looking for ways to get out. Sounds okay, right? The items you need to escape are randomly located, so the chances you can find them easily are slim with some events randomly triggered to keep you on your toes. So why get a locked room simulator? Simple, one of the five may not be there to help. Scratch that, one player is selected as the Monster, and with a wide variety of them, all with unique abilities and techniques for hunting down and thinning the crowd of survivors, each game can become a ball of laughs as you quickly realise you may have just told your friend and the monster where you’re stuck and that your flashlight isn’t all that safe after all. £15 for one copy or £45 for four can see you living out all those horror films you’ve ever seen, just remember to run!


So what games do you enjoy that inspire that Halloween spook factor? Don’t forget that you often get Halloween sales as well, so maybe check out the games that go on sale for those hidden gems that you’ll enjoy for years to come.

New Images from Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

Who’s the better superhero isn’t something you should say out loud in a comic book shop, but it might be a question that will be answered for some in the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice movie.

Comic-Con in Sand Diego is less than a week away and it is just pure logic that we would get some new images from the new science fiction movie around this time. The new images come to us thanks to Entertainment Weekly and we would like to share them with you too. We know that a lot of people are looking forward to this movie.

As you’ll know by now, the film finds Kal-El (Henry Cavill) going up against Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) as a world-weary Batman decides that Superman is just too much of a threat to ignore.

Naturally Batman can’t fight someone like Superman on his own, he’s just a guy with gear – so that gear has been upgraded and reinforced with some handy Kryptonite.

Batman and Superman aren’t the only two superheroes you’ll get to see in this movie, Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) is also present.

These are all basically good guys (and girl) and a Hollywood movie can’t be a Hollywood movie without a real bad guy. And who better than good old Lex Luthor.

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is scheduled for March 25th next year, so we still need a little patience in that regards. Until then you can watch the official teaser trailer and more fresh pictures below.

Apple Vs Android -iPhone 6 is Just an Old Nexus 4?

The Apple Vs Android argument will be ongoing until the end of time – Apple fans often claiming that the iPhone ‘just works’ and Android fans claiming of the latest technology and lowest prices. Both parties have good points, but are you paying way too much for your iPhone with possibly outdated technology?

The comparison shot above has been circulating around popular image boards and social media websites as of late, showcasing how Apple’s brand new iPhone 6’s premium features match that of something released almost two years ago by Google.

One thing this image doesn’t list however is the backend specifications of the phone, meaning there is no RAM or CPU model or speed noted, without taking this into account however this begs the question – is the iPhone really worth the price tag? But to put it into context, Googles Nexus 4 contains a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro and 2GB of internal RAM compared to Apple’s iPhone 6 with a faster 64-bit, A8 CPU but smaller 1GB of RAM.

As a whole – you’ll be paying $199 for the Nexus 4 8GB, compared to a much larger $869 for the iPhone 6.

Personally, I’m not a fanboy either way – but it does make you stop and think. Are you upgrading to the new iPhone 6? We want to know why you prefer Apple’s product over its competitors – is it the interface, are you happier with their design? Or maybe something else has got you hooked.

In terms of features, Warface is said to offer four player co-op missions and a ‘versus’ mode, having players work together or against each other in order to win.
