Regardless of which side of the fence you are on, the traditional pirate is pretty cool. Unfortunately, in more recent times, the manly, swashbuckling anti-hero has toned down the dark and brooding, while upping the slapstick, the cliched costumes and the hints of alcoholism. No longer are these peg-legged chaps the terror of the seas, instead they've become the punchline to some sort of stereotypical joke.
Adam Kennedy from Topware Interactive has set out to change this, taking back the pirate genre and making it gritty, dark and rather frightening in the upcoming argggh-pg Raven's Cry (sorry, was that disrespectful?).
Everybody has a voice, but everybody's talking about the same thing. There's a lot of noise out there, but Player Attack aims to cut through the fluff - or, sometimes, fill you in on the fluff you might have missed. We like indie releases, breathtaking concept art, and tie-in book launches. We love cheap thrills, a good soundtrack and finding innovative uses for gaming technology. All of that is reflected on the site, updated each day with stories and details about what is going on in the games industry, always paying attention to stories other outlets ignore.
