Xbox has Halo. Nintendo has Mario. PlayStation? Uncharted is their baby. Every forum post about newcomers to Sony’s consoles wondering which games they should pick up first always has the same reply: Uncharted. The second instalment, Among Thieves, is usually considered the finest of Nathan Drake’s adventures, but it’s obvious…
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…

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…
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.…
If you ever survived of a plane crash, what would be the first thing that you would do after such as traumatic event? Instead of calling for help, if you’d join with a group of adventurers to defeat groups of legendary monsters, then you will feel right at home with…
Warning: This review may contain spoilers. With over $550,000 pledged on Kickstarter and a solid team comprised of industry veterans that worked on titles such as Metal Gear Solid IV and Halo 4, Republique had a lot of potential. Set in a dystopian city-state inspired by the events of George…

I’m mowing down hordes of cute, walking bullets with a gun that fires junk mail, while a turtle in a space helmet provides covering fire as I frantically roll from upturned table to stone pillar. I’ve only got a few seconds before the next torrent of bullets destroys my last…
Quantum Break is somewhat of a remnant of the original vision for the Xbox One, the all-in-one entertainment system from Microsoft. A fusion of video gaming and live-action TV, Quantum Break is an ambitious project and whilst it’s not without its flaws, the concept works much better than it has…
Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead Season One received immense critical acclaim, chronicling the journey of Lee and Clementine as they made friends, evaded foes and gave everything they had in order to stay alive. It was intense and kept you on the edge of your seat, as you had no…
Not to be left out of the party, the Deathstalker is the latest keyboard to join the Chroma club. Boasting Razer’s Chroma technology it obviously comes with more colour choices than days left in this century, but what else does it bring us? A different direction is taken to our previously…
The Siberia 200 is SteelSeries’s spiritual successor to the Siberia V2, aiming to bring the ageing headset into the modern age with a goal of ‘reclaiming its title as the best gaming headset in eSports and PC gaming’. At £60 it’s not going to be the best and SteelSeries damn…
The Tom Clancy franchise has been doing well recently with Rainbow Six Siege last year garnering a great reception amongst critics and players alike. The latest game to bear his name introduces a new IP to the series in the form of The Division, in which a group of sleeper…
First seen in the 2000 Japanese film of the same name, Battle Royale is a format that seems made for video games. It’s been emulated via mods such as Minecraft’s popular Hunger Games plugin and ARMA III has a dedicated game mode, but surprisingly there hasn’t been an entire game…
Wherever there is light, shadows will always exist. That sentiment is echoed often throughout nearly every fairy tale, and The Legend of Zelda series is no different. The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess HD follows the story of two separate worlds, both tainted by the rise of darkness. This time…
