Summer is upon us (according to some definitions, at least), and so the temptation to leave your gaming consoles behind and go outside might be strong. When it comes to the gaming calendar, June is traditionally not a month during which big releases grace our shelves, and that’s certainly the case this year, too. Even still, you’ll find plenty of electronic entertainment to keep you occupied this June if you’re not the sort to seek the sun and warmth of the outdoors. Here are the best games heading your way across all systems in June 2024! Destiny 2: The Final…

Whether you believe that spring truly begins at the start of March or towards its end, one thing’s for certain: spring is well and truly underway when April rolls around.

When the Wii was first released in 2006, gamers and critics alike appeared to have a hard time taking it seriously as a gaming console. The name alone provoked mockery and derision from those who wanted more “hardcore” gaming experiences, while the fact that games like Wii Sports and Wii Fit proved popular seemed to reinforce the Wii’s casual reputation. The fact is, though, that the Wii had a huge library of excellent games for both hardcore and casual players, and if you knew where to look, you could find some truly incredible titles. From massive open-world RPGs to tight…

The year is drawing to a close, and so it’s the perfect time to take a look back over all of the games that have been released in 2023. It’s difficult to argue that 2023 wasn’t, in some respects, a banner year for the medium; landmark releases in genres like survival horror, single-player RPGs, and open-world gaming meant that you were catered for, no matter what your tastes might be. This, combined with some excellent independent launches and some exciting announcements and reveals, has made 2023 a great year to be a gamer, whatever platform you may be playing on.…

City builders are a very divisive prospect. For some, they’re an engaging timesink, providing hours of compelling and strategic entertainment. Others, meanwhile, condemn them as boring and stuffy. If you fall on the former side of the fence, then you’ll find you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to great city builders to play in 2024. From realistic options through to fantasy-inflected titles, there’s no shortage of city builders to occupy your mayoral mind. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the 15 best city builder games you can play in 2024! 1. Cities: Skylines II It’s fair to…

Zombies are a reliable cultural phenomenon. If you want to sprinkle a little danger and high-stakes drama on your fictional premise, then add zombies. It’s an approach that’s worked for The Walking Dead, 28 Days Later (yes, they’re not technically zombies, but they fulfil the same purpose) and Sony’s upcoming epic Days Gone, among others. Zombies are a universal villain: they’re unstoppable monsters with no recourse to reason, so they’re a natural fit for villainy. They’re also a great bad guy for video games. You can dispatch as many of these shambling horrors as you like without feeling guilty, making…

Whether you’re looking to build new relationships or strengthen existing friendships, hosting a games night for friends can be one of the best ways to cement the bonds between you and those closest to you.

However, video games can offer just as rich and diverse a range of options for players of every skill level, so whether you like to duke it out in a fighting game or make sure everyone’s having a…

It’s official: Xbox Game Pass now supports streaming. If you’re a subscriber to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass Ultimate service – which bundles in Game Pass and an Xbox Live Gold membership, making it ideal for anyone with an Xbox console – you can now access Microsoft’s streaming services on Android devices.

As all gamers know, the first quarter of the year is usually pretty dead when it comes to new releases. The year of 2024 is no different. However, this isn’t to say there aren’t some gems worth picking up this month. Titles that have everything from; supervillains, pirates, fantasy, and old rivalries are in the lineup this February. If a player has a limited window to have a few rounds, then this curated list will help with which games are worth investing in. Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League Even though Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League has had a…

Boxing is a sport with a long and storied history. It’s not really possible to prove whether prehistoric cultures engaged in sports akin to boxing, although since playfighting for fun is a common sight among many animals, it’s not impossible to imagine. The Ancient Greeks believed that boxing was a sport played by the gods atop Mount Olympus, and the Romans altered the sport with leather hand coverings and more violent rules. Today, boxing is a much less brutal and much more sporting discipline. Most boxing takes place under Queensberry Rules, named after the Marquess of Queensberry, who refined many…

Playing games together with friends in the same room is one of life’s greatest joys. If you’ve never experienced the pleasure of battling friends in Mario Kart or Super Smash Bros, then you’re missing out on a simple but thrilling way to build friendships. The Switch, in particular, has proven to be a great console when it comes to multiplayer gaming; many of its best games are playable by more than one person. Sometimes, though, you want to accommodate more players than most multiplayer games will allow. When that happens, you need to seek out some great 8-player Switch games,…

There’s no better way to settle an argument, however small or petty it might be, than a round in your favourite fighting game. Assuming both participants are gamers, of course, grabbing a controller and getting ready to square off against your opponent one-on-one is a great way to let off steam and level the playing field. If you’re lucky enough to own a Nintendo Switch, you’ve got plenty of options when it comes to your preferred way to settle those arguments, too. There are lots of great fighting games available for the system, so choosing one can be a little…

Alright, buckle up, gamers! We’re diving into the high-octane world of Rockstar Games, the undisputed champs of the gaming streets. Let’s talk about the legends who flipped the gaming world on its head with a little gem called Grand Theft Auto 3 back in ’01. Yeah, they’ve been the talk of the town, stirring up the pot with games that push the envelope. But hey, controversy? That’s just the spice in Rockstar’s secret sauce. Now, let’s get real – Rockstar’s track record isn’t just impressive; it’s like a victory lap at the Gaming Olympics. Critically acclaimed? Check. Cash registers ringing…

We’re calling it right now: 2024 has to be the year when we finally hear about the long-awaited and much-rumoured Nintendo Switch successor. After all, Nintendo can’t keep a lid on its new hardware forever, right? The Switch is entering its seventh year in 2024, and most consoles generally last around that long before their successors are announced and subsequently released. This pattern holds for the PlayStation and Xbox, for the most part, so Nintendo will most likely follow suit. Of course, without an official announcement, we can only speculate, but the fact that the Switch is starting to show…

It’s fair to say that the console war between Microsoft and Sony has taken on a very different shape to how it originally looked back in the 2000s. These days, Microsoft’s ecosystem is spreading over more than just Xbox consoles; the company is taking a hybrid approach, focusing on both PC and Xbox and attempting to achieve a degree of parity between the two. As such, traditional Xbox-only exclusives are generally rare these days; for the most part, Xbox games also launch on PC, and so any analyst still calling for “Xbox exclusives” is lagging behind the times. Of course,…

It’s easy to feel smug as a PC gamer. Where console gamers bicker and squabble over the exclusives to which they have access, PC gamers can usually sit in their comfortable gaming chairs and smile knowingly at the vast library of games available to them. More and more games are coming along each and every day for PC, too, and many of the “exclusives” that once graced PlayStation and Xbox are also appearing on PC these days, meaning that it’s hard to argue a PC doesn’t represent the best gaming platform out there right now. January 2024 looks to have…

The best Ubisoft games are a fascinating topic. Ubisoft is one of the most famous and biggest video game developers out there, and while they received a lot of criticism for relying on old franchise games instead of creating new IPs, a lot of their games are classics and highly rated. The good thing about Ubisoft is that there’s a lot of variety; you have stealth games, family-friendly games, single-player games, multiplayer games, and more. It has spawned the Assassin’s Creed series, the Splinter Cell series, the Watch Dogs series, and many more. So, today, we are going to rank…

At the time of writing, the PlayStation 4 is the fifth best-selling console of all time, managing to shift an astonishing 117.2 million units across its lifetime. Technically, of course, the PS4 is still going strong; many games are still being produced for the console, and while support is arguably winding down now, the PS5 hasn’t quite supplanted the PS4 just yet. Still, since Sony appears to be getting ready to sunset the little black monolith, we thought now would be a good time to look at the best the PS4 library has to offer. Without further ado, here are…

It’s fair to say that as time goes on, the PlayStation 4 is losing more and more support from both Sony and third-party studios. There are, of course, still plenty of great gaming experiences to be had with Sony’s last-gen machine, with a huge amount of PS4 games available, but if you’re still a PS4-exclusive gamer, you might want to start considering jumping to the PS5 ship. December isn’t usually the most active month for game releases, but the pickings for PS4 this month are particularly slim, unfortunately, with just a handful of games hitting the console’s storefront this holiday…

Tis the season to be jolly, as they say, and it’s also the season to take time off work and finally get around to that backlog you’ve been meaning to tackle. December is usually a quieter month for game releases, and that’s certainly the case in 2023 as well, although your Xbox Series X/S can’t take a rest just yet. There are still a few games lining up for those who haven’t filled up their holiday stocking yet, so whether you’re looking for immersive RPGs, adventure games, or anything in between, you’ll find what you’re after in December. Here are…

Another month has gone by without Nintendo mentioning the successor to the Switch, so it’s starting to look like it might be a while before we hear anything concrete about it. Still, that does make a certain kind of sense. While the Switch is certainly aging from a technical perspective, the library for the machine is still growing, and great games like Super Mario RPG and Persona 5 Tactica are keeping it alive and healthy. December 2023, while nowhere near as packed as previous months in the year, is shaping up to be another solid month for Switch games, so…

If you want the best and most versatile gaming platform around, then your best bet is probably to buy a PC, unless you’re particularly wedded to physical releases. While it may not be quite as convenient as other platforms – and you might miss out on certain exclusives – you’re still able to play the vast majority of games being released at the moment, and you can customise their parameters to suit your machine as well. Whether you’ve just got yourself a new PC or you’re looking to shore up your library for an old faithful ‘puter, you’ll find plenty…

Recently, Nintendo announced that it would be ending online support for 3DS and Wii U games. Along with the closure of the 3DS eShop earlier this year, the announcement effectively marked the final end of the 3DS and Wii U era; of course, no new games were being produced for the consoles, but this feels very much like the final nail, so to speak. With that in mind, then, this feels like the perfect time to reminisce about the 3DS’ exceptional library. Some truly excellent games were produced for Nintendo’s handheld, many of which you can still find if you’re…

The Dark Knight is well and truly here as we look at the top 10 Batman games! While Gotham Knights was ok at best and it looks like Suicide Squad Kills the Justice League is never actually going to come out. It has to be said that Batman has been treated pretty well in video games, with many good games to his name, so many that picking just ten was way harder than you would think. Please keep in mind that this is our top 10 so no need to use Oracle to track us down and beat us with…

Ah, the humble platformer. Who would have thought that simply leaping from platform to platform, perhaps collecting a few things along the way, would provide such a compelling experience? From 1985’s Super Mario Bros all the way to more modern offerings like A Hat In Time or Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, platformers have kept us enthralled and entertained for many years. As you can imagine, the PC is fertile ground for great platformers, so without further ado, here are the top 20 platformers you can play on PC right now. 1. Hollow Knight Hollow Knight is more than just…

Dark and Darker is a pretty ingenious combination of genres. The game is simultaneously a fantasy dungeon crawler and a PvPvE-style multiplayer game in which you’re just as much at risk from other players as you are from environmental hazards. With that in mind, if you’re looking for an experience akin to Dark and Darker, you might struggle, as it’s a very unique prospect. However, there are plenty of games you can check out if you’re looking for something that’s in the same ballpark. Here are the 20 best games like Dark and Darker! Hunt: Showdown While Hunt: Showdown doesn’t…

2048 is a rather unique and absorbing puzzle game, which, admittedly, makes writing a list of similar games somewhat difficult. If you’ve never played it, you should give it a shot; 2048 is fiendishly addictive, despite its simple setup, meaning you can easily lose hours of your life to it. However, if you’ve decided to seek your puzzle pleasures elsewhere, you will find games that might scratch the same itch. Here are the 20 best games like 2048 to play right now. 1. Threes! Of all the games like 2048 out there, Threes! is probably the most similar. Much like…

Horror gaming is a fine art, and it’s one that many developers have struggled to get right. Even developers working on games for major consoles and PC can stumble when it comes to creating compelling horror experiences, so how could browser-based games hope to compete? Quite handily, as it turns out. Here are the 20 best browser horror games you can play right now! A note: we’ll be including games available via cloud gaming here, as they’re accessible via browsers (at time of writing). Let’s get started! 1.
