Rumour has it that the beloved Nintendo Switch may not be long for this world. Since the Switch performance of games like Pokemon Scarlet and Violet was less than desirable, some have murmured that Nintendo may soon be about to introduce a new piece of hardware that’s more powerful.  This would make sense; Nintendo hardware is often bookended by Zelda games, as was the case with Wind Waker and Twilight Princess on GameCube, and a new Zelda game is just around the corner. Still, in the meantime, the Switch is going strong, and March is bringing plenty of games to…

When you sit down to play video games, how long would you say your average session is? An hour? A few hours? How close do you think you are to the average number of hours played in a typical session by most gamers? Of course, it’s difficult to state with certainty what the “average gamer” or “average session” looks like; some sessions can go on for hours, but you might only have time for a quick 10- or 15-minute session at other times. Luckily, a new study has emerged from ExpressVPN that can give us an idea of how long…

Sometimes, it’s not enough to play using the standard controller bundled with your console. If you’re serious about your gaming experience, then you might be thinking of upgrading to something with some real firepower behind it. There is, of course, Microsoft’s own Xbox Elite controller, but that’s a pretty expensive option, so you might be looking for something a bit more affordable. If you are, then we’re happy to report that Nacon has you covered. The Nacon Revolution X Pro controller is a premium Xbox and PC peripheral that’s intended for people who are serious about gaming. This isn’t the…

The year is 1994, and the Super Nintendo Entertainment System is sitting pretty as the console of choice for the discerning gamer. Things are about to change, though; the 3D era is fast approaching, and before long, the SNES’ 2D pixel art will look positively ancient (although it will quickly reappear as fashionable nostalgia). Yes, it’s fair to say Sony’s PlayStation took the world by storm, and that’s not just because of its graphics. Here are the top 25 PS1 games of all time. 25. Chrono Cross If you look around forums and other fan discussions, you’ll find that Chrono…

If you’re an Xbox gamer, you’ve probably come across Xbox Live Gold before. The service was much more popular during the Xbox 360 days, but it remained active throughout the Xbox One era and has made it into the Xbox Series age as well. The option for subscribing to Xbox Live Gold can be pretty well-hidden within the Xbox UI or online, though, and there’s a good reason for that. Let’s take a look at exactly what Xbox Live Gold is and whether it’s worth subscribing to it in 2023! What exactly is Xbox Live Gold? Xbox Live Gold is…

We may well be approaching the Nintendo Switch’s twilight years. The console has had a pretty incredible run. It was introduced back in 2017 and proceeded to take the world by storm, offering a gaming experience that could be readily switched between handheld and home console depending on your preference.  Games like Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey codified the Switch as a household mainstay, and despite the Switch’s waning technical power, its release schedule remains packed, although the upcoming post-Christmas release schedule is a little lighter on games than other months. Here are the best Nintendo Switch…

Microsoft’s Xbox Series X|S consoles are showing no signs of slowing down. The more powerful Xbox Series X has some excellent games to look forward to in 2023, while a slew of indies and less technically demanding games await the Xbox Series S.

When Christmas is over and a new year begins, the game release schedule can sometimes dry up a little. All the major releases publishers were hanging onto will have been set for October or November the previous year, so January can sometimes represent something of a dry spell for the industry. Happily, that doesn’t appear to be the case this year; there’s an embarrassment of riches to get your hands on as a PC gamer. Here are the best PC games for January 2023! One Piece Odyssey – January 12th There have been many One Piece games over the years,…

Marvel’s Spider-Man was one of the unexpected gaming delights of 2018. The Spider-Man franchise hadn’t been performing too well in the gaming sphere for a number of years at that point, so a great Spider-Man game was going to take its developer pulling out all the stops. That’s exactly what Insomniac Games did, thankfully, and we got what might as well be the definitive Spidey experience, with excellent web-slinging, great combat, and a surprisingly heartfelt story to boot. In late 2020, two years after the original release of the game, Spider-Man Remastered launched for PS5, bringing the game to parity…

Ah, the humble stick figure. Beloved by children and poor artists (like us) the world over, stick figures are a great way to quickly and cheaply render a human being for whatever reason you might need. Just because stick figures are simple, though, that doesn’t mean they can’t be well-animated; quite the opposite, in fact.  Many of the best Flash animations and classic internet videos throughout history have starred stick figures, and the world of gaming has its fair share of them too. If, for some reason, you’re desperate to play a game about stick figures, allow us to take…

For some reason, Christmas hasn’t quite taken off in the world of video games as it does in movies, music, and other media. It’s probably because players usually like to revisit games numerous times, replaying them over and over again, and this is more difficult when a game has a specific seasonal slant. However, that doesn’t mean there are no Christmas video games out there to play, so if you’re looking for a festive treat this holiday season, here are the best Christmas video games you can check out today. 1. Spider-Man: Miles Morales Taking place entirely at Christmas, Spider-Man:…

While modern video game graphics can be breathtaking, the biggest reason so many people play video games on their PCs is that they are just fun. We are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to connect with other people and play various games with them from our own homes. Because let’s face it – it’s always better to get mad over a loss with someone rather than by ourselves. Of course, some games will take days or months to complete. For instance, starting a Valheim server is a commitment you and your friends make. It can take months before your…

What makes a great video game villain? Maybe heroes need to be invincible, but they also need a counterpart to drag them to their extremities. What we want is for an unstoppable force to meet an immovable object. So, whoever it is, they need to arrive with an impact and stir up a chaotic maelstrom of events. Then it’s that swirling spiral of good and evil, which spins those epic rivalries and recurring battles we remember.  In this blog, we’re taking a look at some of those gaming villains who transformed the titles they were part of.

Who would you say are the most important people involved with the success of a particular game? Would you say it is the programmers who make sure the game runs smoothly? Would you say it’s the art department who ensure the game is as beautiful as it can be? Or is it the writers who create a compelling narrative? All of these departments are incredibly important to the overall development of a game. But the success of a game comes down to one group of people. The fans. The people who actually pay and play the game. The people who…

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, as the song goes, and that’s traditionally when all the best game releases come out to play. October, November, and to a slightly lesser extent December are all great months if you’re a gamer, and although most of the major AAA releases will already have launched by the time the final month of the year rolls around, that doesn’t mean we’re starved for choice when it comes to great gaming experiences. Let’s take a look at the best games arriving in December 2022! Need for Speed: Unbound – December 2nd The Need…

Infinity Ward are back with a sequel that largely feels like it stomps the same ground as the first game. Only this time there’s more freedom to roam. More heady realism to fall in love with. More ways to dispense of your enemies. Building on the blueprint from Modern Warfare – happy to enlist the same skull-masked characters we’ve grown to inhabit – this is another outing that cries out for a big 4K display and the best cinematic sound system you can afford.  There are few games that do immersion like the Call of Duty franchise. So, while MW2…

Eight years after the release of Red Dead Redemption, gamers are able to revisit the open-world Western with the prequel Red Dead Redemption 2. What made the original Red Dead Redemption so successful can only be attributed to a multitude of factors, ranging from the excellent use of music to dynamic gameplay elements such as the ability to mark several shooting targets in slow motion. Key to the Red Dead experience, however, is, of course, the Western atmosphere and gunslinging environment, a setting for which there is a (perhaps surprising) lack of good video games. If you’ve exhausted the Red…
