  • The Best Games from the Halo Series

    There are very few series which can be described as gaming royalty, which inarguably changed the landscape of video games for everybody. The Halo series undoubtedly falls into that category. Part of that comes down to simple longevity. The first game in the series came out all the way back in 2001, and the most recent was released in 2017; sixteen years of smash hits is pretty impressive, however you look at it! Large parts of their success also come from their creativity and the quality of their execution, both of which we’ll look at in more detail later in the article. There have been a total of 13 Halo releases (not all of which have been full-scale sequels). Here…

  • The Best Arcade Fight Sticks For Console Gamers

    With the introduction of games such as Tekken 7 and Injustice 2, playing fighting games has become increasingly fun for everyone. However, if playing such games with a controller has led to cramped hands and blistered thumbs for you to deal with, then you may want to buy a fight stick. A fighting stick basically reproduces the same feel that old arcade machines provided. The joystick and large round buttons provide the hands with a lot of breathing room. However, since all fight sticks are not created equally, here are some of the best arcade fight sticks for you to choose from: F300 May Flash Arcade Fight Stick This is a simple stick for starters; it comes with 8 buttons…

  • The Best PS4 Charging Stations

    The DualShock4 is a big improvement from the DualShock3 and is an excellent controller. Not only does it have all that gamers need, but it is also quite ergonomic, feels solid, and has the best triggers. Despite all of the innovative features, there is one drawback of this controller; the battery isn’t too great as one would expect. Many people have complained about batteries running out in just a short time, which is annoying especially when you’re deep into a game. Yes, it is possible to use the controller while it is charging; however, this can be a problem if the cable isn’t long enough. The best solution for this is to invest in a PS4 charging station, which is…

  • South Park: The Fractured But Whole Preview – The Coon and Friends

    South Park has a long history of irreverence, and its wholesale approach to laughing at modern day’s silliness has gathered it a large following over the years. It was no surprise, then, that when Obsidian made The Stick of Truth the game became an instant hit, capturing the style and atmosphere of the show and letting it take on classic fantasy and RPG tropes. The sequel was long in the making, with multiple delays along the way, but it’s finally coming to us this month, under a different developer (Ubisoft San Francisco) and the same viciously funny direction from Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Let’s see what South Park: The Fractured but Whole brings with it. We’re superheroes Last time…

  • The Best Games From Sonic The Hedgehog Series

    It’s no secret that Sega’s front-hog hasn’t had much success in recent years. After releases like the glitch infested Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, the button mashing marathon that is Sonic and the Black Knight, and the slightly janky Sonic Unleashed, it’s easy to see how our beloved hedgehog has fallen out of favour, becoming the punchline of many a joke within the gaming community. But hope is not lost! The recent release of Sonic Mania has taken us right back to the franchise’s retro roots and reminded us all why we fell in love with Sonic in the first place. In celebration of what will hopefully be the start of a solid Sonic comeback, let’s take a look at some of his better appearances.…

With that in mind, here are my picks for the best horror games of this generation so far: Until Dawn Until Dawn, created by Supermassive Games, places the player in the perspectives of an assortment of teens in the middle of the woods. Set up intentionally like many cheesy horror films, the player must make choices as the story goes on as all of the characters, each of which setting consequences in motion.

  • GTA VI Will Likely Utilize the Power of a PS5, Arriving in 2020

    We’d argue that, if there’s one series that has consistently pushed each consecutive console to its absolute limits, it’s Grand Theft Auto. We may scoff at how basic something like GTA 2 seems, looking back now. At the time, however – and particularly on the first-generation PlayStation hardware – an open-world game like that, whose setting was also so detailed, was simply revolutionary. The PlayStation 2 was obviously a big technological step forwards, but still, the leap that was made by GTA III, Vice City and then San Andreas is simply staggering when you think about it. The perspective was brought down to eye-level third-person, the graphics were fully three dimensional, and the worlds – particularly that of San Andreas…

  • The Best Games from the Wolfenstein Series

    The phrase ‘gaming royalty’ might sound overly grandiose, but if this category of games does exist, then the Wolfenstein series certainly belongs in it. The first Wolfenstein game was released in 1981, and there’s a new one – Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus – scheduled for release later in 2017. That means the series has been running for a frankly ludicrous 36 years! In fact, it’s the second longest-running story-based game franchise in existence, with the Mario series being just a few months older. All of the Wolfenstein games have been action-based, and they’ve all revolved around fictional plots involving the Nazis, with William “B.J.” Blazkowicz as the main character. There have, however, been several distinct eras in the history…

  • Playstation VR Year One Must Haves

    PlayStation VR’s 1 year anniversary of it’s original release on October 13, 2016, is right around the corner, and now is the time to look back at the many releases that have come and gone. Among the many games and experiences, there have been great and breathtaking moments, as well as frustrating and poorly optimized, headache inducing experiences. Among these, there are a few must-own titles for PlayStation’s stab at the virtual reality scene. Until Dawn: Rush of Blood Until Dawn: Rush of Blood is a on-rails survival horror that puts the player in the place of an unnamed protagonist, travelling through horrifying levels hoping to get to the end of the living nightmare. Rush of Blood is a fun…

  • The Best Racing Games and Franchises

    Regardless of platform, whether it be on one of the consoles or PC, racing games have always proven incredibly popular. Developers have been churning them out for decades now (the first true racing game – Gran Trak 10 – was released all the way back in 1974), and gamers have been more than happy to lap them up! There are a select few titles, however, which in our opinion stand head and shoulders above the rest of the racing games out there. And so, without further ado, here are the best racing games ever created. Gran Turismo Series When it comes to racing games, for many people Gran Turismo is the unquestioned daddy. This will be particularly true for PlayStation…
