IncGamers Plays – Video Round-Up [April]

3 May 2012  by   Paul Younger
In this month's video round-up of exclusive narrated video, IncGamers Plays tries out a variety of transportation. From massive sea-bound carriers, to Japanese rail services, and even a set of weird and wonderful alternative universe American Civil War vehicles, a lot of these games put us behind the wheel. Elsewhere, the titles took us to fantasy realms of varying hues and indie developers Arcen Games returned with a new release. Read on for every single IncGamers Plays video from April. [video2=2853] Cyanide tried their hand at another tabletop game conversion with Confrontation, which proved to be a mixed experience. Here, I take you through one of the opening levels in the game and demonstrate the stop-start tactical combat. [video2=2869] Something rather terrible happened with the release of Gettysburg: Armored Warfare. Pushed out into the world far too soon, this attempted multiplayer FPS/RTS hybrid simply didn't do what it was supposed to. Tim did his best to capture one or two ... oddities from the release code. [video2=2872] Bohemia Interactive's Carrier Command: Gaea Mission should stir up some memories amongst those of you old enough to remember the original. Those who never played the 1988 title should still take a look at this footage from the beta though, as it's a game that hasn't dulled with age. [video2=2875] April saw The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings released for the Xbox 360. A rather tired Tim gave it a sleep-deprived whirl to see how it compares with the PC release of the dark fantasy RPG sequel. [video2=2880] Trains. They can be baffling sometimes. That was certainly the case with The Train Giant, the western release of Japan's A-Train 9; a game which made only the most minimal of effort to inform the player how to ... well ... play it. Nonetheless, I gave it a try. [video2=2892] Arcen Games return with a rather strange 2D sidescrolling platform-and-shoot-and-then-craft-em-up named A Valley Without Wind. Battling through the bizarre art direction is a weirdly compelling game, but you need to be at peace with the visuals to find it. [video2=2893] The subtle differences between skeletons and skellingtons are discussed as Tim does battle against the dastardly King Rat in this footage from preview code of the Civilization-esque Warlock: Master of the Arcane. That's your lot for April, but stick around through May for even more narrated video goodness. You may also want to delve into the IncGamers vidcast/podcast archives for more audio-visual gaming views.
