Application security programs and practises

Product Round-up So now my Panda is Level 90 I thought it might be time to get my head out of the Brewmasters keg and have a look a selection of other games that have been released while I have been in my MMO reverie. If you don't fancy playing COD: BO2 or Halo 4 and are bored of relentless franchise titles then take a look at the games below. Hopefully, they will keep me busy until Neverwinter and Bioshock Infinite show up next year.

God only knows when Rome 2 is going to be released – where's my beta key? And will we see Company of Heroes 2 before the snow clears? There are a good variety of genres covered but what I really want to know is when is someone going to create a game that includes turn-based, zombie gangster ninja chickens from space?

Black Mesa

RH Numbers

Half Life but how you always wanted it to be – for free! You don’t get mods much better than this – totally revamped graphics and character models supported by the same deep familiar atmosphere and narrative. Beautifully fluid levels full of intelligent enemies are mine to explore with my gorgeous new gore splattered gun.

Black Mesa rewards nostalgic gamers for their devotion and patience. The new voice acting and improved graphics will hopefully introduce what we loved about the original Half-Life to a new generation who might otherwise be put off by the out dated graphics.

Deadlight

RH Numbers

New developer Tequila Works has polished the zombie theme into something beautifully simple and atmospheric. It’s a deadpan sidescroller full of repetitive death and frustration. Built in the Unreal Engine, Deadlight looks a lot like Prince of Persia but is sometimes hindered by a ham-fisted, overly solemn script.

The use of the stamina bar in gameplay is well implemented and relying on stamina to attack meant I had to carefully time my swings to take down zombies. The stimulating puzzles include electrocuting zombies by flicking switches – dance zombie dance. For now, Deadlight is definitely satisfying my corpse fixation until the release of World War Z.
