A light was shone upon the story of Dragon Age: Inquisition at Gamescom this week, and the spotlight was very much on the enemy of Thedas. In a new trailer, there are some freaky enemies on show, but it was very much the allies of the Inquisitor that caught my…
Microsoft took to the stage at Gamescom to reveal some big news about the Xbox One line-up of games. With Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Halo 5: Guardians, Fable Legends, Forza 5 and many more being shown off, what did I think of their conference? In the following video you…
With Gamescom here to satisfy our cravings, some of the big companies had their own conferences to showcase their line-up of upcoming games as well as inform us on updates. Sony's show was promising to look great after their E3 presentation. Bloodborne, Uncharted 4, The Order, Destiny and many more titles…
New consoles, new games and a new hope for the future of the industry. As we look forward to what new games are releasing before the end of the year, Octobers line-up seems to be the most jam packed. With titles for all consoles and genres taking part, which titles…
Wildstar's Nexus is a beautiful world, and discovering it is just as exciting as attacking its inhabitants. Wildstar is a game that has thought of catering to the many different play styles of its player base. I personally love exploring the world and the beautiful locations within. Each area of Wildstar…
It has been little over a week since the ending of another San Diego Comic Con, and whilst there is always a lot to digest from such a prestigious event I think it’s fair to say a lot of gaming fans will be focusing on a lack of news from…
Not too long ago, it was revealed that EA were apparently innovating too much. The company had a one of its representatives come out about this during an interview, trying to defend the critically reviewed Dungeon Keeper on IOS. Stating that the game along with many others were too innovative…
With The Last of Us Remastered coming out and garnering lots of praise for being a good remaster, and with many games getting 'definitive versions' for this generation, let’s look at some do’s and don’ts when it comes to remastering, porting and remaking games for a new generation. DO: Make…
There are a huge amount of games that have drawn inspiration from Bohemia Interactives DayZ, but are they any good? There is no denying that DayZ brought about an almost revolutionary surge of survival zombie craft games, each claiming to do certain aspects better than their siblings. After the clash of…
Over the last week, pretty much anyone with a games console has been playing the beta for Destiny, the latest project from Halo creators Bungie. Expectations were high and most people have come away from the beta with those expectations met. Personally, I have to be honest and say that…
I was able to get to Hyper Japan in London last weekend, a big convention hosted at Earl’s Court. The event was a general celebration of all things Japanese but the main reason I was there, was because of the games that were on show. Nintendo and Bandai Namco were…
For many of us, we still don’t really know what No Man’s Sky is about. We know we have massive galaxies to explore, creatures to find and possibly hunt and minerals to mine but hardly anyone outside the dev team seems to know how this all slots together to form…
Light up the stadium, ready the fireworks and get the hype rolling in. WWE 2K15 is shaping up to be the most ambitious wrestling game in the series to date and with John Cena recently revealed as the cover superstar for the game, a new star has been revealed as…
Game journalism is in a very odd place now. We are stuck in a weird hinterland where battle lines are clearly drawn between top level game journalists and gamers. An ‘us versus them’ mentality is starting to prevail, a ‘you’re either with us or against us’ feeling which is only…
2K along with Gearbox Software revealed their next and most ambition game yet. Battleborn is a first person battle arena that will put multiple factions against one another in a setting similar to MOBAs. The developers are very stern that the game does not represent or play anything like a…
The day there is an Adventure Time MOBA, you know that the market is over saturated. This genre, which really hit its stride at the start of this decade, seems to be following the MMO gold rush of the late 2000s to the letter. Just like the catastrophic MMO rush,…
A very touchy subject indeed isn't it. When talking about violence in the gaming world you can think of it from two different perspectives. Violence when it comes to games design and marketing and violence caused by video games. In the following video I bring up a recent interview featuring…
After watching the trailer at E3, I have become very interested in Suda51'S newest game coming exclusively to the PS4. Let It Die looks like another interesting title from Grasshopper Manufacture, but what can we expect from the gameplay? Looking over a recent interview involving Suda51, I look over what…
I think we can safely say that eSports is now a big deal. When you’ve got the DOTA 2 International having a bigger prize pool than the Super Bowl, the US regarding pro LoL players as professional athletes and colleges offering eSports scholarships, it is alright to assume that eSports…
Some games look cute and cuddly on the outside. They masquerade their true identities with bright colours, cartoony characters and a 3+ PEGI rating. In actual fact, these games are incredibly dark, containing themes of that would be more suited to an 18 rated game. Let me reveal to you,…
Boss fights in video games are a way of presenting specific challenges, in order to task the player with using the game’s mechanics to their fullest in order to best a difficult fight. It’s like the developers throw down the gauntlet to you and say “come and have a go…
