The WarZ - Short Update 7/12/12 ( Player Increase )

Just a very brief update regarding The WarZ, but after the server issues of today and very long disconnects, the servers have come back with a very cheeky update.


Forsaken Fortress - the post-apocalyptic survival RPG ( UPDATE )

Two great video updates have just been released for Forsaken Fortress, which is a post-apocalyptic survival rpg with an emphasize on simulation. It looks as if the game really does have a lot of life in it especially with the feeling of character development and emotion. I also especially like the base design and object placement.


Zelda Fans Rejoice! - Great Zelda Custom Games ( Zelda Classic )

I was going to call this a remake news article but these are not strictly remakes but custom quests and maps based on the Zelda game. Some of these quests are huge, with many many hours of classic Retro Nes style Adventure,rpg Gameplay. So you the gamer will get your Zelda thrills. I believe the term for these types of games are JRPG's, that's Japanese RPG to those that don't know. However many gamers debate the fact that it's an RPG and actually reference to it as an adventure title.


Important Update ! - Please Read

Important Update for all of our readers of Indie Retro News, as from the 12th of December 2012 I'll be in Hospital having an internal operation, I'll also be put back on blood thinning injection's until such time as the operation has healed( blood clot disorder). I was hoping to be in and out via the Day Surgery but may have to be in up to 2 nights depending on the operation success.

So please don't worry too much if there is a lack of updates for those two days 12th/13th dec. I hope to be back and posting as soon as possible but that all depends on my recovery. I'm hoping that John our other contributor will take over the article postings just during my recovery time.

Sorry guys, it won't be too long ( I hope ).

WarZ - Stat Wipe Update

Tonight has been a really bad night tonight on the servers with players Multi-killing, long distance shotgun kills, no-clipping and wall hacking. At one point I was sniping on the hill when I died instantly, suddenly this woman appeared out of thin air next to me, takes my stuff then disappears again ( not server hopping ). So I'm hoping that after this stat wipe they really do update the Anti-Hack ban engine, because at the moment it's out of control! So when you do get killed on the game you don't know if it was legit or a hack. But less of that, back onto the stat wipe
