    Travel Journal: Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture

    1984, Shropshire (England), Yaughton Valley. Something mysterious happened… something that you as the player need to find out while exploring the now deserted towns. The inhabitants have literally vanished, disappeared without leaving a single trace behind. Your only clue is a bunch of floating orbs of light, swimming in the air and guiding you through the valley’s untold story. Telephones and radios still holding registered reports, pieces of the tale you need to reconstruct to solve the puzzle. This is what Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is about, an Indie title developed by The Chinese Room and SIE Santa Monica Studio, released for PS4 in 2015 and PC the following…

    Tomb Raider 2018 Movie VS 2013 Game

    The new Tomb Raider movie with Alicia Vikander as lead character, inspired by the video game series released in 2013 by Square Enix and developed by Crystal Dynamics, is officially available in our theatres since March 15th. Many are the feedbacks related to this live action and although the majority of comments posted were not exactly reassuring, I usually try to think with my own head and see things for myself before expressing any sort of judgement. Is it good? Is it bad? Is it worth it? In this article I will compare a few scenes from the movie and the game itself, thus I highly suggest you to not…

    Nvidia Ansel: First impressions

    Nvidia Ansel is now available with the latest driver update, thus I want to write down my first impressions about its features and available effects. If you own a Playstation 4 you certainly know about the Photomode plugin implemented in some installments (Infamous Second Son, Mad Max, The Last Of Us Remastered, etc). On PC, as mentioned a few times in my previous articles, we can only get unofficial tools to play around with camera, field of view and additional visual effects, in order to get professional screenshots similar to the ones released by video game companies to promote their new product.

    Mirror’s Edge on PC

    When I played Mirror’s Edge on PC for the first time I had literally zero experience with first-person video games, nor I knew about Parkour, a key point in this and many other installments.  Mirror’s Edge is a game developed by Digital Illusions Creative Entertainment (DICE) and published by Electronic Arts (EA) in November 2008 for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. In January 2009 it arrived for Microsoft Windows as well.

    Goat Simulator on PC

    “Goat Simulator is a small, broken and stupid game. It was made in a couple of weeks so don’t expect a game in the size and scope of GTA with goats. In fact, you’re better off not expecting anything at all actually. To be completely honest, it would be best if you’d spend your $10 on a hula hoop, a pile of bricks, or maybe a real-life goat.” With this epic introduction the creators (Coffee Stain Studios) describe Goat Simulator like a completely useless and funny product. This game is basically a small platform with literally crazy animals (and more!) as protagonists, you can use them to walk around with no…
