Retrogaming Forever - Liero One Of The Best Game I Ever Played

Retrogaming Forever - Liero One Of The Best Game I Ever Played
As many of you probably know by now, I am a fan of retrogaming. I remember since the 80's I where my dad bought me an Atari 2600 VCS I felt in love with the world of computing. Since back then I became interested in programming as well. After playing games for many years on both my Commodore 64 and TRS-80 Color Computer, I slowly get involved in PC gaming. As you may know PCs at that time were not the ideal machine for games, but the '90s became the years of changes and one of the games that brought my attention was Liero. Conceived and created in 1998 Liero became a popular duel game in classrooms and homes alike. Between 1999 and 2005 the thriving Liero community created astounding maps, mods, and editors to enhance the experience of this amazing game. This is the final version of the original generation of Liero released in early 2000.


WebLiero
Even after the last two decades, Liero maintains its popularity. If you are still an old fan of Liero, you will be more than happy to learn that there's now an online version of this combat arcade-style game since August 2019, and you guessed; now you can play with others online. Introducing the WebLiero. All you need is to create a room, invite your friends, drop the hammer, and unleash that blood rain. Best of all you can play WebLiero for absolutely FREE of charge and still have the same fun as you used to have with the original version. One great thing that I love about the webLiero version is you can play with an unlimited number of players as well and it remains true to its original predecessor excepted you play online. Sorry, no offline mode.

Liero
WebLiero is accessible with any browser, I found that it works well on Microsoft Edge and Chrome, but I haven't tried that game with Internet Explorer or Firefox so let me know if it works fine with those browsers. If you wish to give it a try, well just visit the WebLiero website and open a free account for yourself. WebLiero also offers some brand new game modes with randomized map pools and no split-screen mode.

If you prefer, you can also download Two other versions of the game called Liero 1.36 and LieroLibre respectively. Both are true successors of the original game, The Liero 1.36 is a high fidelity clone based on the OpenLiero project from 2007. It is the official new version of Liero and the latest version was released in 2013. This version has fixed several annoying bugs and it has several new modernizing features and of course, it runs perfectly on modern computers. Version 1.36 as been released for Windows users only. Finally, There is LieroLibre, this is a project to liberate Liero from all its proprietary components and to allow it to be distributed completely freely.

Watch Dogs Legion Review: a neat and promising cyberpunk atmosphere

The verdict is getting closer for Watch Dogs Legion , now closer than ever to its official release. A few weeks before the launch, we were once again able to take charge of the Ubisoft Toronto team's title and this time focus on its atmosphere and its history, after having discussed its new features and gameplay a few months ago. Here we were able to play Watch Dogs Legion for more than 4h30. Unlike the one in July which made us discover the first hours of the game, this demo was slightly more advanced in the game: two districts of London were already released and we had access to new scripted missions. Finally, from a technical point of view, note that this session took place remotely on a version of Watch Dogs Legion playable thanks to the Parsec streaming solution. Watch Dogs first of the name took us to a modern Chicago with a rather serious and down-to-earth tone. Watch Dogs 2 fully embraced its Californian vibe, juggling themes related to the joys and sorrows of Silicon Val

Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin Review - Good Concept Does Not Make Good Recipe

While, like every year, 2020 promises to end on a high note with a bunch of big video game releases, some less publicized titles still risk trying their luck in this congested niche. This is the case with Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin , a somewhat peculiar Japanese title since it offers a rather unusual mix of genres. Although the niche is rather poorly chosen, stuck between blockbusters like Watch Dogs Legion and probably eclipsed by the release of the new generation of consoles, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin does not dismantle and wants to be generous. After giving you my first impressions in a preview, let's now see what the finished product is worth it. I played for about 20 hours on a classic PlayStation 4. During our review, I did not encounter any major bugs or concerns. I already told you about it in my preview, the first impressions on the title of Edelweiss are quite mixed, although I came out with a certain enthusiasm. First of all because the graphics processing is quite disapp
