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.

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?

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.

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!

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…

When it comes to living out impossible fantasies, there are few game genres quite as successful as the flight simulator.

This was a very hard list to put together, especially to rank them in order. We decided to go for games that we felt were great to play, but also titles that we felt helped sell…
