DEFCON - (Brendan Caldwell)


Hello. This is Spawn Point, a new not-quite-regular feature in which we take a genre, series or other facet of gaming culture, and try to convince you to give it a shot. It might be those hero shooters you ve always wanted to get into, or that terrifying space game played by thousands of jerks. We ll briefly explain the thing, followed by some ways for you to breach it.

First up, it s… the real-time strategy. (more…)

Tooth and Tail - NoRepro

Patch 1.02 is live - We've fixed a bunch of problems pertaining to multiplayer and sanded down some of the mission difficulty. Hopper's campaign is less brutal across the board, and a couple of her heroics are made a touch easier. Howling Vell is significantly nerfed.

  • Ranked Matchmaking searches with "far" filter to solve people not finding matches
  • Fixed Ranked Cheating problems: Increased redplug timeout (which results in a draw) to be longer than the Steam lobby timeout (which results in a loss). Players should timeout of their lobbies first. Increased to 30 seconds rather than 9 seconds.
  • Ranked - Reduced queue times for higher tolerances: Changed to 5, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 from 5, 15, 30, 45, 60, 75, 90

Story Mode
  • Snikaree Liberation - Removed time requirement on Heroic
  • The Sand Kiln at Levacaloo - Removed time requirement on Heroic
  • Scrapetown Cutpurse Changes - Removed skunk patrollers, Revised mission hint
  • The Hungry Face a Stiff Wind - Removed 2 artillery cannons, several machine gun turrets, and 25% of the barbed wire.
  • Howling Vell - Reduced enemy mills from 3 to 2, Spaced out mills better to prevent enemy pigs from spawning in range of player pigs

Bug Fixes
  • Added option to disable video (for people that crash on video playback)
  • Fixed problem where game would crash on start because it couldn't load the audio - now it just disables audio :-/ If you are experiencing this bug, you may need to update your drivers for one of your external devices, like headphones.

It s always the cute ones that burn you alive with a flamethrower. I ve been playing through the campaign of woodland animal strategy game Tooth and Tail [official site] for a few hours now and I keep getting killed by drunk squirrels and goggle-wearing boars. I m enjoying the simplified controls and ratty pixel art but I’ve also noticed that, despite the developer s claims of creating an accessible RTS for folks who only want to dip into the genre, it can be frustratingly difficult at times. These rodents with revolvers don t hold back. (more…)

It’s an animal extravaganza on our podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. This week we’re talking about pets in games, y’see. Good boys, bad boys, mediocre boys – we love them all. Alice joins us to praise a terrible raccoon Pok mon who’s rubbish at fighting but great at surfing. And while Pip adores the ghostly holo-cat of Tacoma, I prefer the cute xenomorph of Alien Isolation, who can perform all sorts of neat tricks. That’s right, who’s a good boy? Who’s a good boy?> OK now put me down. Stop that. You’re drooling. I said stop it. (more…)

Out now is Tooth and Tail [official site], a game about adorable little anthromorphic animals who- oh. Oh no. They’re fighting. Stop fighting! Why are you fighting? Is that a skunk launching mustard gas? Oh no. It seems Pocketwatch Games, the makers of heist game Monaco, have a terrible lesson to teach us about Mother Nature in their new real-time strategy game. Tooth and Tail is a streamlined RTS, condensing the thought and action into rounds of 5-12 minutes with gamepad-friendly controls, procedurally-generated maps, and customisable factions. It’s mighty pretty and all. (more…)

Tooth and Tail is now available on Steam!

The animals of Tooth and Tail are at war over who gets to eat, and who must be dinner. From the creators of Monaco: What’s Yours Is Mine comes a similarly fast, distilled, darkly humorous take on the Real-Time Strategy genre.
