Crapshoot: The horny surgeon sim called Biing! for some reason

By tracy

From 2010 to 2014 Richard Cobbett wrote Crapshoot, a column about rolling the dice to bring random obscure games back into the light. This week, sex may sell… but can it cure appendicitis? And can it ever hope to take over from Google as your search engine of choice?

Biing’s intro begins in the year 2156, with mankind facing extinction at the hands of an intergalactic evil in a time of dread. As civilians scream and run in terror, a fleet of battlecraft called X37-2-in-1 Strike Ships close in on their goal… EARTH. The evil Athros, Ruler of the Universe appears in all his cloaked majesty, kicking off an apocalyptic attack, and more importantly, kidnapping the beautiful anime-style Princess Pinkcheeks. But! The last remaining Earth hero steps forth, fighting back in a 2D battle that looks at least a little like the old NES shooter Lifeforce. Will he be able to defeat his foe?

No. No, he won’t. Because Biing is an erotic hospital management sim.

Things get considerably stranger from there.

Saying that the German gaming industry leans towards incredibly anal, micromanagement-heavy strategy games and deeply surreal porn is, obviously, a gross simplification of an entire nation’s output. Sometimes

Hades Review – The Highs And Lows Of Repetition

By tracy

Developer Supergiant Games is known for creating titles with rich narratives and sophisticated themes, and one of the great triumphs of Hades is how those elements are seamlessly integrated into a roguelite structure. Through a seemingly limitless array of character interactions and plot progression, Hades seeds its storytelling over many hours of repeated runs, as you lead your character along one attempted escape from hell to the next. In addition to weapon and character upgrades, new story insights are among the most satisfying rewards. But that also means that you’ll be eager to see those plot threads resolve, and to do that, you should prepare for an especially long road.

Zagreus is the son of mighty Hades, who rules the realm of the dead with a barely controlled anger only matched by his insistence on total control. He’s the definition of an overbearing father, and Zagreus’ desire to strike out on his own feels as much like a family drama as the retelling of a familiar mythology. His quest to find a mother he’s never known brings him into contact with a who’s who of Olympus and the Greek ancient world, including Zeus, Athena, Achilles, and Medusa. The constantly shifting

WRC 9 Review

By tracy

In comparison to last year’s big jump in quality with WRC 8, WRC 9 is a more modest lurch forwards. Several great new rallies have been added and it does feel like there’s been a bit of massaging under the hood – with a better sense of car mass and weight transfer – but elsewhere things seem fairly similar. This makes WRC 9 a thoroughly excellent entry point into the series, especially for rally fans who aren’t aware of the rapid and remarkable improvement of the official WRC series since developer KT Racing took over in 2015. However, if you already own last year’s game you may crave a little more than WRC 9 has to offer.

[ignvideo width=610 height=374 url=https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/09/08/wrc-9-launch-trailer]

WRC 9 is a slightly peculiar experience, as it’s found itself in a similar position to Codemasters’ F1 2020. That is, thanks to the long-haul nature of video game development and a global pandemic, it’s ended up shipping with a bunch of events that were already stripped from the real calendar long before launch – and understandably without any of the surprise replacements that have been shoehorned into the real championship at the last minute. So it’s been unfairly …

Rayman Creator Michel Ancel Says He’s Quit Video Games to Open a Wildlife Sanctuary

By tracy

Michael Ancel, creator of Rayman and Beyond Good & Evil, has said he’s leaving the world of video games to open a wildlife sanctuary – but assured fans that work on Wild and Beyond Good & Evil 2 will continue without him.Posting on Instagram, the director wrote: “Today is very special for me. After more than 30 years, I’ve decided to stop working on video games and fully focus on my second passion : Wild Life ! My new project takes place in the real world and consists in a wild life open sanctuary dedicated to education , nature lovers and … wild animals.”

Addressing his currently ongoing projects, Ancel reassured fans: “Many of you might want to know what will happen to Wild and BGE2. No worries, since many months now the teams are autonomous and the projects are going super well. Beautiful things to be seen soon.”Wild was first announced in 2014, with Ancel setting up a brand new studio to create the open-world PlayStation exclusive. It’s been very quiet for a long time, but we saw the game get an unexpected art update earlier this year as the developer continues to hire for the

NBA 2K21 Review – Living Off The Legacy

By tracy

Just like the star athletes that adorn its cover every year, NBA 2K has created a strong legacy, launching it to the top of this generation’s sports games. The series has maintained solid gameplay while never forgetting about innovation, and I appreciate the risks Visual Concepts takes even when they don’t completely pay off. NBA 2K has advanced sports storytelling, character customization, and the level of detail we expect from overall presentation. However, once you’re on top, you have to fight to stay there, and a bad season or two can haunt you. The current-gen version of NBA 2K21 is not a bad game, but it does not live up to the legacy Visual Concepts built. 

While this iteration lacks improvement in most off-the-court situations, the classic gameplay on the court remains a keystone of this entry. I love how players of all different levels can play the NBA 2K series and get as deep into the mechanics as they want and still have success. Every possession becomes about finding the best path to the basket, knowing the right window to pull off the perfect pass, or setting that screen to free up your point guard to drive to the
