The Secret World: Issue #11 - Reaping The Whirlwind Review | Endgame

I love The Secret World.

If you're a regular, chances are you already know that. I've written article after article, update after update, in an attempt to shine the spotlight on what I'd consider to be the best MMORPG on the market and an exceptional game that dared to do something revolutionary. After three years of waiting, the very last piece of the puzzle has released and the first major story arc has come to a close.

So it's fitting that my final review for Dealspwn.com is the final DLC pack for one of my favourite games. And immensely pleasing that Issue #11: Reaping The Whirlwind is one of the most extraordinary MMO expansions I've ever played.

The Secret World: Issue #11 - Reaping The Whirlwind Review | Endgame

Issue #9 introduced us to Tokyo and its sinister filthy inhabitants. Issue #10 let us meet the cult and the man behind the bomb that changed everything. Issue #11 finally lets us assault the Orochi Tower to put an end to... her... schemes and get some answers. Of course, seeing as this is The Secret World, there'll be a few questions too.

Just in case you're interested, Funcom gave us a guided tour of Issue 11 before launch, which contains sweet flowing wisdom and major spoilers.

My wisdom flows so sweet. Taste and see >>

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited Review | A Revolutionary Compromise

The Elder Scrolls Online is a contradiction in terms. Even its title makes no sense. Massive multiplayer tacked on to the singleplayer RPG gold standard, a confused compromise between two radically different genres.

Last year it didn't work. Now, after a major rethink and a new pricing model, it does.

Tamriel Unlimited has no subscription and a massive amount of improved content, but just as importantly it's available on PS4 and Xbox One. Though it pales next to the biggest MMORPGs on PC, it feels revolutionary on consoles.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited Review | A Revolutionary Compromise

Set hundreds of years before Skyrim, Tamriel Unlimited takes place in the middle of a huge war. Three implausible factions vie to put their emperor on the throne of Cyrodiil, all while the sinister Daedric prince Molag Bal attempts to take over the entire plane of existence. As a victim of his sinister plot, you'll escape the chilling Coldharbour dimension and attempt to save the world while exploring Tamriel itself.

Vector Thrust Review | Too Early For Missiles

Vector Thrust!

Even its name is awesome.  As a cel-shaded combat flight sim that plays like a slightly more authentic Ace Combat, boasting 260 aircraft and a huge number of modes, this one-man effort fills a void that's been cruelly ignored over the last few years. Arcade dogfighting. Beyond a couple of Ace Combat spinoffs and a few Sci-Fi efforts, we've had little to celebrate until now.

So naturally I jumped at the opportunity to review Vector Thrust as soon as it graduated from Steam Early Access to full release, being a huge fan of the genre and small-team boutique development. Sadly, it turns out that the celebrations are a tad premature, because what could have been a great combat flight sim launched far too early.

Killzone: Mercenary is just £7.99 on PS Vita

Killzone: Mercenary has occasionally fallen to £8 or less on PSN, but you can now grab a "like new" physical copy for that sort of price. It's a A superb Vita shooter and a game that I actually scored slightly low in hindsight as I subconsciously compared it to full home console titles!

We said that the game set "a new benchmark for handheld first person shooters" in our Killzone Mercenary review. Thanks to gerardarmstrong5 @ HUKD!
