  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Sudden Strike 4 Review

    For essentially as long as consoles have existed, there has been an ongoing debate as to whether or not strategy games can succeed on them. RTS games, in particular, are seen as more problematic than their turn-based counterparts, due to their high-paced nature and (sometimes) emphasis on micro-management. The crux of the argument, of course, comes down to the controls. The mouse-and-keyboard setup on a computer simply is more accurate than a console controller. In the heat of the action, if you need to order a single unit to attack a specific other unit, and you only have a split-second to do it, then it’s a heck of a lot easier to do with a mouse. Then again, couldn’t you…

  • Rising Storm 2: Vietnam Review

    There are countless video game titles that try to emulate the utter chaos of a war-zone; the combat, the fire-power, the explosions, the hum of helicopters overhead. Franchises such as Call of Duty and Battlefield do a decent job of capturing some of that atmosphere while providing a solid first-person shooter. But for true life or death realism, Rising Storm 2: Vietnam has got you covered. First things first, Rising Storm 2: Vietnam is not a game for casuals or first-timers. It provides an intense, totally unforgiving gun-play experience for veterans of the genre. Rising Storm will do very little to help you complete your objectives, something that really gives this game its edge and helps it hit the sweet spot between first-person shooter fun and realistic war-zone thrill. Don’t expect…

  • diskAshur PRO2 Review

    In this day and age, with hacking and the theft of data – whether it be cloud-based or physically stored – being more prominent and widespread than ever before, protecting that data has taken on an even greater level of importance. Rather than being an afterthought, computer security has well and truly been forced to front of people’s minds. Accordingly, a sizeable industry has sprung up around providing relevant security solutions. iStorage are one of the smart companies who have seized this opportunity. This British outfit were only founded back in 2009, but in a relatively short space of time they’ve risen quickly, built a sterling reputation, and now provide equipment for government departments, defence departments and financial institutions. They…

  • Divinity: Original Sin II Preview – Rivellon, and on, and on

    Our last trip to the bright and colourful world of Rivellon was a treat the likes of which we rarely get to experience. And it’s getting a sequel which apparently makes everything better. And in the game. Let’s take a look at some of the best things to come our way when Divinity: Original Sin 2 launches on September 14. (Un)Cooperative playthrough The first Divinity: Original Sin, among its many features had a spectacular co-op mode for two people. It even allowed you to resolve your differences during conversations peacefully and playfully. Original Sin 2 goes a couple steps further to gain momentum and make a big leap forward. First of all, instead of two players with a single hireling…

  • Day One Pax West impressions

    With PAX West beginning yesterday, many larger companies are trying their hand at gaining the attention of the thousands of people who travelled into Seattle. Here’s a breakdown of what you need to know when attending some of those companies’ booths: SONY: Sony’s presence at PAX West is relatively small in comparison to the likes of Xbox. A large notable chunk of Playstation’s booth is taken up by some new PS VR IPs. Inside the center of the booth you will be able to try your hand at titles such as Knack 2 and Detroit: Become Human. On the outer edges, smaller IPs can be found such as the upcoming remastering of Secret of Mana, as well as one last…

  • Video Game Mysteries That Remain Unsolved

    The world of gaming is full of mystery, and why shouldn’t it be. Mystery, as an entity, is a big part of video games, as many titles sell solely on the suspense that they generate. Many of these mysteries could just be there due to a glitch or to tease gamers and have a little fun. Sometimes, these are planned by developers, and sometimes they just end up being there naturally. 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. Pokemon: What Does Diglett Look Like Under the Ground? There are many Pokemon whose designs have always…

  • Darkest Dungeon Review

    Recently I’ve been playing a game called Darkest Dungeon- or as I’ve come to think of it, “Dark Souls, RPG edition”. The game is very difficult, or at least gives the feeling of difficulty- it is not that objectives and missions are hard to complete persay- they have been, but not terribly hard. No, the hard thing about this game is that even if it doesn’t kill you, it will weaken you. Let me explain. The setting itself is quite a dark one- there was once a rich estate owned by a wealthy family. They lived good lives, until one of them heard about something buried underneath the manor. Curious, they started digging, until they found something terrible. It unleashed…

  • Reasons Why We Can’t Wait for Red Dead Redemption 2

    When it comes to new releases, Rockstar Games sure do like to take their time. They’re one of the most profitable publishers in video games, and yet they’ve definitely resisted the urge to churn out titles over the years. Really, that’s great for us, the fans. Because over nearly two decades in business, games which have been both developed and published by Rockstar have been consistently excellent. The time that they take between releases is spent dreaming up fascinating characters, fleshing out detailed worlds, honing razor-sharp scripts and, of course, hiding endless Easter eggs. It was with mixed emotions, then, that we learnt that Red Dead Redemption 2 was to be delayed. Having originally been expected during the autumn of…

  • The Best Open World Games

    The genre of open world games took off in earnest during the early 2000’s, when rapidly advancing technology allowed developers to create the likes of GTA III and Morrowind. Fast-forward fifteen years or so, and open world games are more popular now than they’ve ever been before. Gamers want the freedom to explore a living, believable world at their own pace, and publishers – led by industry giants Ubisoft – have been more than happy to oblige. 2017 has already seen us blessed with not one, but two of the finest open world games of recent times (more on those later). Without further ado, let’s look at five of the best open world games currently available on the market. The…
