War Thunder: Review
We have been playing War Thunder, the game formerly known as World of Planes. We've got a lot to say about the game that sends players soaring into the wild blue yonder.

If there is one thing that can be said about War Thunder, it can be a truly stunning and beautiful game. The planes are all very expertly crafted, and nothing quite compares to dropping out of the sky to unload machine gun and cannon fire on an enemy fighter. In this respect, the explosions and fires are equally impressive. The sounds accompanying all the bullets, cannons, bombs, rockets and flak are all quite great (and realistically loud!). The music is fitting for the period the game takes place in, and is certainly a high quality. The only problem is that it is rather forgettable once you're in-game and flying around. You can also 'paint' you're planes with a variety of different insignias and symbols, which allows you to further customize a plane to your liking. There are multiple maps that you will play on, and some of them have a 'night' mode. I'm not sure what triggers this, but it is amazing flying through the air shooting at things while spotlights shine up from the ground.

You can read the full review here.

The Social Hub: Camelot Unchained Column: Impossibly Driven By Hope?
In our latest Social Hub column, we take a look at the KickStarter hopeful, Camelot Unchained. The game, at least in these earliest days, seems to be bent on reviving true community spirit in MMOs.

Going back to DAoC, it was a funny place for a person like me to get a start in MMOs. I'm admittedly not so great at PvP and am more of an explorer, but that game still captivated me personally with all the possibilities. Turns out that I got caught up often in the world, in PvE content and in working together with others. When it came to sieges and trying to maintain or take keeps, I was never on the front lines or anything, but it always felt good to have a sense of collective purpose. Victories could be for a while after decimating a force that came thinking that we had some holes in our armor. It was exciting. It was massive and sometimes chaotic, and everyone was up and down, winning and losing, rebuilding and guarding.

Check out the column here.
