Published by in News on October 27th, 2011

Every year, we here at Reaper Towers wait with anticipation for the results of the Golden Joystick awards. “Why? It’s just another games awards show”, you say. No! You’re wrong – Shut it! It’s more than that – it’s an awards show where you and I – Gamers – decide on who wins and who loses. What more power do ya want, eh!? It is also one of the longest running games award shows around, going since 1982 – back when GamesMaster was a TV show. Ah, I remember it well. Those were the days of simple pixel pleasure and long

Forza Day Out Report – Mondello Park

It was a bright and warm Thursday morning in Dublin town when Reaper Gaming (unusually out before dark!) made it’s journey to Mondello Racing Park, Nass, Co. Kildare. We were gladly being whisked away courtesy of Edelman PR and Microsoft to partake in some pre-release Forza 4 shenanigans at the renowned racetrack.

The first thing everyone remarked on was

From what we have seen, Forza 4 will take the franchise to the next level, making what was once merely another racing game series fighting for the top spot in the genre, into something which is now so much more than just another Racing Sim. Once we had our fill of burning rubber we grabbed a few minutes with Dan Greenawalt and talked about the game and its development, RG: Has Forza 4 pushed the current Xbox to its limit? DG: The truth is every version pushes the Xbox to its limit. It’s all about optimisation, like moving from one

  Its the age old question when it comes to motor racing games how real is real? Obviously there are certain things that you experience in a racing car that your don’t experience on your sofa like G Force, fear of ending up as a smudge on a piece of amco or a six figure repair bill.

Ice T Unboxes Gears of War 3 – and a Big Lancer!

Published by in News on September 9th, 2011

Yo mo-fo, our favourite rapper, metalhead, gangster, actor, reality TV star and celebrity gamer is in the Houuuusssseee – its Ice T! Have to say, not a big fan of most of those areas, but I do like Ice T – it tastes great with a few cubes on a hot day, nice with vodka too.

Was also a big fan of Bodycount, even saw them in concert back in the day, that’s right, me and Ice

Here is a new video from Turn 10 and Microsoft for Forza 4 of the Infineon Raceway.       The making of Hockenheim for Forza 4, the level of detail that these guys put into recreating a track is mind blowing.   On board with the Stig around the Top Gear test track for Forza 4, was it wrong I could hear Clarkson in my head watching this video ? Some say he scares the crap out of developers…
