    so turkey gets their own server? that would be great, because turkey ruins small games like this so often.

    I thought this game died for good back then, but I loved the hell out of it. I’m glad it’s coming back and I’ll give it another try when it’s out.

    Heh, I remember playing this a fair bit when it was published by Aeria Games, it was quite fun with its Metal Slug style.

    This is maybe off topic but you guys are releasing your news way to fast. It’s like 6 days a week there a no news at all and then *boom* the whole front page is full with new news. I would rather have 1 – 2 news a day than this. Can’t keep ut reading and commenting on all at once 😛

      We average 4-6 news posts every day, even on slower days. Today was a bit busier than usual due to 3 Jagex articles coming off of embargo at the same time, but generally we’ve been at the same news pace for quite some time now.

      • Bainks on February 17, 2016

        hey the game is also coming to https://www.warpportal.com/ just a headsup its NA or global not really sure.

      • sarido on February 17, 2016

        Seems to be a bug with the Front page, Sometimes doesnt update and just show old articles.

        • Magicman on February 17, 2016

          Yeah, I’ve noticed that too, seems to be a cache issue. We’re looking into it, thank you for saying that…I thought I was just crazy sometimes!

          • sarido on February 19, 2016

            Np, keep up the good work love the site.

    • rickshaw on February 17, 2016

      I call in everyday & I disagree with your lash comments, I think Christmas you’d expect such a long wave or absence, but NO this site has been pretty consistent and announces with good timing ease of flow for their NEWS!
      Considering all the time & effort it takes to create game reviews, edit & release their own movies with great commentary, as well as get out & about, running around all day n night 24/7 trying to get it so you read it with difference.
      So I say well done everyone here, Hats Off!
      Fantastic work!

      • Magicman on February 17, 2016

        We all thank you for the compliment! 🙂
