  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Project Cars 2 Review

    Project Cars 2 has taken fans by complete storm; people are raving. Unfortunately, part of their shock stems from the disappointment many fans faced from its predecessor. Project Cars left much to be desired in the way of handling, gameplay, and track and car selections. Fans that were beyond eager for the release of the game were disappointed shortly after beginning to play it because of the many issues with handling and the limited car and track selection. The developers heard their complaints and made some incredibly positive changes to the gameplay, landing it in the elite group of games that have surpassed their predecessors. With a variety of highly anticipated racing games entering the arena shortly (GT Sport and…

  • 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.…

  • 5 Games To Play This Halloween

    Happy October everyone! Halloween is right around the corner, and this means, horror games are going to be on the forefront of many people’s minds.

  • PES 2018 Review

    The FIFA vs PES debate is one of the longest-running and most bitterly-fought in video games. Far be it from us to wade in, but it can basically be summarized thus: FIFA always had all the licenses, including the official kits and team names, whilst PES was generally regarded as having superior gameplay. FIFA dramatically improved its gameplay in the late 2000’s/early 2010’s, while PES’s declined. At that stage, in the early 2010’s, FIFA unquestionably held the title belt. Things stayed that way for several years, with FIFA dominant. Then, in the mid-2010’s, PES started to make its comeback. PES 2017 was a watershed moment, with the gameplay the best it had been in years, and a whole section of…

  • 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…

  • 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…

However, some of these mysteries still remain unsolved to this day. Do not believe us? Check out this piece on a few mysteries in the gaming world that have still remained unsolved.
