Hitman Episode One Review
Hitman represents a return to form for our shiny-headed assassin, harkening back to the glory days of Hitman Blood Money rather than his last outing Hitman Absolution, which was poorly received by fans of the series due to both its attempts to humanise Agent 47 and its rather lacking story…
Far Cry Primal PC Review
Ubisoftification. A term to describe the recurring negative aspects of Ubisoft’s recent games; excessive pointless collectibles, conquerable landmarks that reveal more of the map, repetitive loot with little purpose, you get the gist. Despite the change in setting from the Himalayas to Oros, a fictional valley in Central Europe, and…
From the Depths of Hell Comes a New Doom Trailer and Closed Beta Date.

The Cycle of a Dark Souls Fan
I swore that I wouldn’t get suckered into the hype this time. After being burnt by Dark Souls II, I was going to remain as uninterested in Dark Souls III as humanly possible and go into it with no excitement for the final instalment in the trilogy. This plan failed…

Devil Daggers Review
Hell has become one of those go-to levels for game design, being as exciting as the snow or desert area. There’s always some fire, brimstone, lava and possibly a pointy-horned demon cackling at the damned, with artists and designers very rarely straying from the same design of Hell which has…

Five Unsung Gems from the Original Xbox
Considering that Microsoft’s Xbox brand is one the big juggernauts of gaming, it seems that few people cast their minds back to where it all began. Competing with Sony’s PlayStation 2 and Nintendo’s criminally under-appreciated GameCube, the original Xbox was the award middle child of that generations consoles. It bolstered…
The Technomancer Looks Like if Mass Effect met The Witcher 3 on the Red Planet.
Get Your Ass to Mars. Yes I know technically Mass Effect did get its ass to Mars in Mass Effect 3, but my point stands; The Technomancer looks to be heavily inspired by Bioware games, specifically the Mass Effect series with more than a pinch of CD Projekt Red's The…

Fellow Tenno, it has come to my attention that many of you do not fully understand what it means to play as or with Limbo. The gentleman frame is not a troll, nor is it a useless tool to use against the Grineer, Corpus, Infested and Sentients. In fact, my…

Why You Should Play The Order: 1886
I remember seeing the initial trailer for The Order: 1886 live during E3 2013. I was 17 at the time and while I’m only 20 now, the last few years of game trailers and releases have taught me how to restrain my hype. Seeing Sir Galahad with his arc gun…
