Casual Aces Footer 2

Facebook has a new toy to play with, the Oculus Rift. However since the news broke that facebook bought Oculus, gamers and their faithful kickstarter supporters have been up in arms. I have to say that I was on the same page when I first heard the news. However I have had a few days to let the news settle with me, I have researched into it a little more and to be honest I see this as a smart move on Oculus’s part. Lets have a look at the facts.

Star Citizen, Epic Concept.

Casual Hunter FooterHi there gamers I come to you today with a game I’ve mentioned before and you may have heard about or maybe you have already invested in the pre release content i.e. the hanger and ships. I have so far been sceptical that this game would live up to its promises but recent developments in the funding of the project, the lore of the universe and the emerging game mechanics have convinced me that this could be an absolutely massive game.

War Thunder latest additions and the impending Tanks.

Casual Hunter Footer

Hey gamers I know many of you have joined us on the free to play sensation that is War Thunder. The most recent updates have completely overhauled the graphics, gameplay and progression system. The most obvious change is to the ranking system which now has been streamlined to make the games far more diverse (and sometimes a little unbalanced). This makes choosing your target far more important and knowing the capabilities of your opponents planes invaluable. The graphics overhaul should make your game not only look a lot better but also run smoother with higher frame rates. Read more ›

The move to PC

Casual Gaming FooterWhat up guys. Just a quick side post about the next gen consoles and all that jazz. With E3 behind us and the terrible performance of Microsoft & Xbox still fresh in our minds, we have both made the conscious decision to move to PC. What does this mean for us? Well we are going to build a mid range gaming rig that will be able to handle pretty much any game. The PC is a bit more expensive up front but the savings from the likes of steam and the lack of gold membership fees will balance it out quick enough.  Read more ›

Casual Aces talks Minecraft

Casual Aces Footer 2What up guys! Today I’m going to look at Minecraft Xbox 360 edition seeing as it arrived on shelves only last week. For those of you that don’t know Minecraft was developed on PC first by a guy called Markus Persson and the gang at Mojang back in 2009. It came to Xbox live arcade in early May 2012 and just over a year later the retail disc has arrived in stores. Its available now for just €20 and it’s definitely worth the money. To date it has sold a record breaking seven million copies on Xbox alone. So you could say it’s kind of popular!  Read more ›

Round 2 – Forza Horizon with Casual Aces

Casual Aces Footer 2

Round 2 – Forza Horizon. 

When I first started playing Horizon it felt familiar but it took me awhile to figure out why. In my opinion it feels like a mash up of Need for Speed and Grid (which is a good thing). I love racing games and the whole free roam aspect just makes for an entertaining, non-linear experience.  Read more ›

Casual Hunter talks The Walking Dead Survival Instinct

Casual Hunter FooterFirst off I heard a lot of bad things about this game before I played it so my expectations were pretty low and the only reason I played it was the fact that I love the T.V. show. So with that in mind, if you like the show and wanna fill the gap between seasons  borrow or rent it no need to buy it unless it’s seriously discounted because you’ll finish it pretty quick.  Read more ›
