This category is all about the gameplay. By the time we record one of these videos, we usually have a pretty good understanding of the gameplay mechanics.

SimCity (2013) – Quick Look

After several days of connectivity issues of varying degree, we finally get a chance to take a quick look of the new SimCity game without any disconnects. Unfortunately we where not able to run through several online features as they have been disables to help reduce the server load. Despite these issues, the game has been fairly enjoyable and features some great mechanics and simulation.

Quantum Conundrum – Quick Look + Review

Quantum Conundrum is a neat puzzle game that puts you in control of four physics altering dimensions. At first glance you may assume this game is heavily influenced by Valve’s Portal franchise, however this does make sense when you consider both titles share the same lead designer. While both games have their similarities, there are many more more differences which make Quantum Conundrum a unique experience.

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare – Quick Look

Following our Fraxial Show, we had recorded a Quick Look on Chivalry : Medival Warfare. Unfortunately due to technical issues, Nick had to record a new episode on his own as Mike could not join in again.

Chivalry is a neat first-person medival combat game that is powered by the Unreal 3 engine. While there are a few rough edges, the game does look good and plays fairly well. While we didn’t agree on the 30$ price during our original show, the Steam sale price of 12.50$ was more than reasonable.

The Fraxial Show – Episode 1.5 -[Diablo III]-

Since we weren’t able to contain ourselves over the long-awaited and extremely hyped release of Diablo III, we had to post a new video featuring the game a little early. Thus, we dubbed this episode number 1.5. Incidentally, we’ll be posting new episodes of The Fraxial Show every Wednesday from now on, as it’s most convenient for both of us. Look forward to next week’s video, which will feature even more Diablo 3 fun and some more lively discussion!

The Fraxial Show – Episode 1

Good news everyone! We’ve decided to start a new weekly series called The Fraxial Show. Each week, we’ll post a new video of us playing any game we choose while talking about news in gaming, what we’ve been playing recently as well as just general discussion. It will be in the format of a podcast and we invite you to offer suggestions for content you’d like to hear about or which game you’d like to see us play for the following week.

Battlefield 3 Co-op – Operation Exodus

Even though the game has been out for a while, we both decided it was time to post a video featuring the co-op element of Battlefield 3. Surprisingly enough, the co-op missions are quite fun and offer a serious challenge – very different from the multiplayer. This video features Operation Exodus, the first co-op mission in the game. Your mission is to go out and kill a bunch of enemies while your armored jeeps sit back and watch. Sounds easy? Click and watch to see just how frenzied the action gets.
