Video games developers Nival “Blitzkrieg 3” was announced two years ago in 2013 but has only recently been available to play in a closed alpha and is now available on Steam Early Access. It has been about a decade since Blitzkrieg 2 came out and a dozen years since the first Blitzkrieg game so most people have probably forgot about the game or have moved onto Men of War and Company of Heroes at this point. Is the game still relevant? and even more important is it a good game? This is My Scrambled Thoughts on Blitzkrieg 3.
On the 27th April Battle Brothers developed by Overhype Studios got released on Steam Early Access, I mentioned it on Twitter on release but I finally got around to writing a bit about it. The game is a strategy RPG similar in vain to UFO: Enemy Unknown/X-COM, and Mount & Blade: Warband. It is already a very good even in it’s currently early build state.
City of Steam is currently having its last alpha weekend. This fourth alpha weekend started today at around 03:00 PM GMT and ends on Monday. Mechanist Games have said that its main priority for the weekend is to stress test the game so they want lots of people to give the game a try. To take part you need to have a have alpha key which can be obtained through various means on the City of Steam official website.
These are the patch notes from the third City of Steam alpha weekend which happened last week. There no official path notes list available at the moment so I thought I make a list of the changes being made to the game and I will post new patch notes as City of Steam gets updated in the future. This list took a hell of long time to do.
The human and elven races have already been tested in the upcoming browser MMORPG City of Steam first two Alpha Weekends. Later tonight the steampunk inspired game will launch its third Alpha Weekend at 10:00 pm EDT (03:00 am GMT).
So you might be wondering what the feck is City of Steam? Is it some sort of Steam city building game? Well no its a free to play browser-based MMORPG similar in visual style and gameplay to games like Neverwinter Nights, Runescape, Baldur’s Gate with a bit of Vagrant Story. However what makes it different to these games is that it based on architecture and style of a steam punk universe. It is a pretty interesting take on the whole fantasy RPG theme.
