When I approached The Banner Saga 2, I wasn't sure if indie developers Stoic could cause lightning to strike the same place twice. Somehow though, with a few hand-drawn images and clever prose, Stoic have crafted something special. The Banner Saga 2 would be better described as Banner Saga: Season 2.…
Do you remember that film when you were a teenager? The one which everyone saw and became obsessed over for a short while? The one which you still quote today with your inner circle? Well, that is what Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is; the belated sequel to that film, the Anchorman…
Civilization: Beyond Earth is an extremely difficult game to describe to a long-time fan of Sid Meier's venerated series without sounding negative, despite it being a good game. To an newcomer, the borderline trite descriptor of “take over an planet through force or integrating humanity into their new world” seems…
It would be incredibly cynical to dub Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare as “Call of Duty: We Now Have A Jetpack Too”, but that's exactly what it is. You dash around maps, pinging across rooftops and rocket sliding through hallways, all the while popping off rounds from near exactly the…

Traveller’s Tales have never lacked scope when adapting a franchise into virtual Lego. You don't get much larger than the Star Wars, Marvel Universe, Harry Potter and Middle-Earth. Anything that is hammering major money out for Time Warner eventually gets the plastic brick treatment, so it was only a matter…
Set in Paris during the French Revolution, Assassin's Creed fans will be hiking across famous landmarks to stem the tide of Templar influence...again. However, this time you will do it with 3 other players, making it the first time you can experience story content with a friend. The pre-rendered trailer…
Introduction   As the top tier of SteelSeries' H-series, the 9H needed to make more of an impression after our tepid response to the 5HV3. Advertised as being a “premium tournament gaming headset”, SteelSeries can certainly talk big. Thankfully, it wasn't an empty promise as the SteelSeries 9H is a…
