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 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.
Here’s our follow-up for our last episode where we played Battlefield 3. Here, we give our impressions of the game and talk about the Battlefield Premium setup that they have. We also shoot at people for points, because doing that in real life usually doesn’t bring any rewards.
This week we take a quick look at a very cool point-and-click adventure/puzzle game called Machinarium. The game does not feature any dialogue or text, instead it relies on a great art style and equally good soundtrack. From the several hours I have spent on the game, I am still amazed at how good this game really is.
I highly recommend giving the online demo a try which is available on visit Amanita Design’s website here : http://amanita-design.net/games/machinarium.html
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.
Below is a list of all the mods I have installed and links to them. Here goes: Continue reading Grand Theft Auto IV Awesome Mods
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!
To celebrate the release of Diablo III, it was necessary to post a video showing off some of the game’s mechanics as well as the new skill system which I find really neat. This video goes over the first few minutes of the game, while I play as a Wizard class. Yer a Wizard, Harry.
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.

It has been several weeks since our last video and website update, but fear not we have remained active the whole time. To start off our return to more posts, I present you my latest review of Mass Effect 3. Actually it’s not so much of a review as it is my thoughts on the overall game along with that controversial ending.
It is worth mentioning that there are spoilers in this video around the 12:50 mark and this will ruin the ending of the game if you do care about it. You may also notice a distinct lack of gameplay footage in this video. Despite requesting permission from EA a few times, they have constantly denied our request and refuse to provide a reasoning behind it. As that is somewhat of an issue when it comes to a video review, I decided to pull out my Wacom tablet so I could draw around that issue.
