2016 sees the launch of two wacky golf games in which the goal is more wanton destruction rather than sinking a birdie. The first off the tee is Dangerous Golf, the first game by new indie studio Three Fields Entertainment who take their experience working on the Criterion-era Burnout series…
It’s rare to have a new IP, even one supported by a big publisher, be such an overwhelming success in a short period of time. Overwatch has conquered the gaming world over the last week or so, with Twitter feeds being full of Play of the Games, stores actually selling…
The Overwatch Beta had us sold with us at VGU posting about our experiences through the weekend. It was a great time but it was assisted by the fact that the roster of characters was so strong.

Since playing Master X Master a while ago, I have been psyched to see more of what it can do. The game switches things up in comparison to other MOBAs with its WASD controls and Alien Swarm style top down shooter combat. Things are looking great for this title and…

Trilogies are always difficult things to get right. You need to balance tying up plot threads, improving on aspects of previous installments while retaining enough to seem familiar. Dark Souls III has quite the act to follow, coming off the back of an incredibly successful deviation from high fantasy in…
Growing up I played two specific games that were way above my age range, the type of titles you would brag about with your friends as you got an odd hour or so to sneakily play it before your parents found out. One of these titles was Carmageddon, a reckless…

There are two sure-fire ways to get me to come and have a look at your game during a conference: have an interesting premise or offer me sweets, and indie studio Dreadbit Games knocked it out of the park. “A skill-based, acrobatic shooter without aiming” took care of the premise…

Outside of the big franchise racers like Mario Kart and Sega All Stars Racing, it’s very rare that you will see a kart racer that does not have a licensed character slapped on the front to sell units. This is even the case in the indie sphere, where games like…
