The TESTGaming.TV Game Review Scoring Guide:

This article simply serves as a handy guide for understanding TESTGaming.TV’s rating system for PC games. First of all, we only apply the score system to a game that is feature complete. IE: Betas or release candidates. No alphas or pre-alphas. It is not fair to the developer, even if they have released the game as an alpha, to apply all these metrics to a game that is not feature complete yet. Second of all, if it is a game with a definitive end, the reviewer owes it to the developer to attempt to play the game to the end. […]

Hellion follow-up: “In Space, No One Can Hear You Scream ‘WTF?!?’”

Full Disclosure: I received Hellion for free from Zero Gravity Games. Three weeks ago I wrote an article on the upcoming Early Access release of “Hellion” by Zero Gravity Games. Hellion, for those who missed it, is a first-person, realistic, space survival game. The premise is simple: you are an average, every-day citizen of Earth who is on a colonization mission to the new star system called “Hellion.” Along the way, while in cryogenic sleep, something goes wrong. When you awaken you find yourself alone in a lifepod in the Hellion system. Nothing of what you were expecting is there: […]

Star Citizen Hurricane – New heavy fighter

Star Citizen Hurricane – New heavy fighter

Has our demand for more dakka found its answer? The new heavy fighter was revealed on Friday, it is the Anvil Hurricane! A small ship that packs a big punch! Described as a glass cannon, it delivers what the description implies. Weighing in at  15,500kg, it is 7000kg lighter than the Super Hornet. This metric confused many at most because it is not heavy at all and is actually smaller in length as you can see by this side by side comparison: The heavy part of this fighter comes from the impressive weaponry that has been bolted onto the manned […]

What is Hellion and Why am I Excited?

What is Hellion and Why am I Excited?

It’s no secret to my viewers that I am a fan of space games. It is also no secret that I am a fan of survival games. So when someone tells me there is a space survival game coming out Soon™, my ears perk up. And, being a fan and backer of Star Citizen, when they tell me the release has been delayed, I sigh knowingly. I’m not sure when Hellion’s first tentative Early Access release date was, but I know the latest one that it missed was January. This caused me some consternation as I had been relying on […]

Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide; We’re gonna need a bigger cellar…

Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide; We’re gonna need a bigger cellar…

Often you find yourself, a fresh and starry-eyed adventurer, beginning your journey with one simple request from the innkeeper: going down into the cellar and clearing out the rats. In Vermintide, a four player co-op action FPS, it seems the rat problem has gotten a little out of hand. Having risen up from below, the swarms of rat men known as Skaven are evicting the townspeople of Ubersreik and claiming the surface for their own. As one might expect, there were some disagreements over the proposal. Fortunately, five bold adventurers have taken it upon themselves to carry out the much needed […]

Theorycrafting about the Hurricane, Star Citizen’s Latest Concept Ship

Looks like a new concept ship from CIG is on the horizon! Ben Lesnick has answered in the latest Quantum Questions segment that “Life is like a hurricane” in response to what the next latest concept ship for Star Citizen would be. Redditor /u/Chappietime from the Star Citizen subreddit was able to make the connection between this quote and a Letter from the Chairman published in November 12th, 2014 to a concept ship known as the Anvil Hornet [Source]. With the identity of the next Star Citizen concept ship essentially being confirmed, I’d wanted to do a bit of theory […]

Review: “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” (WARNING: Some Spoilers)

Review: “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” (WARNING: Some Spoilers)

This paragraph serves as a warning. There is no way to adequately review “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” without revealing some spoilers. My hope is to keep them minor – I don’t plan on telling you any twists or turns or if someone dies or lives. But there will be references to things that you wouldn’t have known without watching the movie. So, please, be forewarned that if you go any further you will see spoilers. First and foremost, I am a bit of a Star Wars nerd. I have read the comics, watched the movies ad nauseum – […]

The Outsider: Lessons from Twitch.TV

Do you ever feel like an outsider simply observing from the sidelines? I’m sure everyone has felt like that at some point in their life. For me, it’s a constant. I have a tendency to observe, but rarely have the confidence or drive to join in. Part of it is from a general lack of desire to join in—I do better on my own. But another part of me desperately wants to be a part of something but is way too anxious. A year and a half ago, that changed. I had been encouraged to start streaming videogames on a […]
