  • 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…

  • Playstation VR Year One Must Haves

    PlayStation VR’s 1 year anniversary of it’s original release on October 13, 2016, is right around the corner, and now is the time to look back at the many releases that have come and gone. Among the many games and experiences, there have been great and breathtaking moments, as well as frustrating and poorly optimized, headache inducing experiences. Among these, there are a few must-own titles for PlayStation’s stab at the virtual reality scene. Until Dawn: Rush of Blood Until Dawn: Rush of Blood is a on-rails survival horror that puts the player in the place of an unnamed protagonist, travelling through horrifying levels hoping to get to the end of the living nightmare. Rush of Blood is a fun…

  • 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…

  • Goldeneye: Rogue Agent Review

    Today I am looking at a rather interesting first-person shooter called Goldeneye: Rogue Agent. As the name may imply, it is a game based in part on the James Bond movies- but it doesn’t actually have anything to do with the famous Goldeneye video game, nor is James Bond himself your character- instead, you play as a former agent of MI6 that was kicked out of the organization for his brutal methods. The prologue explains that after being shot in the eye by the famous criminal Dr. No, the agent became increasingly aggressive and violent, until they had no choice but to remove him from their ranks. The first level bears this out, where he is working with James Bond…

  • Duck Dynasty Review

    Although it is a universally tacit understanding, it is worth emphasizing that Duck Dynasty is a game that should never have existed. With nothing going for it except for the fact that it is so laughably bad, it is actually fun to make fun of with friends. One wonders how this even passed the test to get the Sony seal of approval for an official release. The story in Duck Dynasty is so incoherent that as I played, the only reason I knew there was a story was that there were fifteen-minute scenes in-between gameplay of an attempt at furthering the plot. One thing confirmed is that Duck Dynasty the video game follows the same cast of the TV show.…

  • PAX West 2017 Impressions: Rocket League’s port to Nintendo Switch and Sony’s Knack 2

    Impressions on the upcoming Rocket League port to Nintendo Switch After walking away from Rocket League for the Nintendo Switch in the Nintendo booth at PAX West, I was left with an assortment of reactions. In most aspects, Rocket League on the Switch feels right at home. Some of this is due to much less input lag when put against its console counterparts, becoming comparable to the likes of the PC version. Another reason to take into consideration is its great feeling local multiplayer. Rocket League will be supporting LAN multiplayer without wifi necessary. With an addition to Rocket League feeling right at home on the Switch’s portable screen, it is undoubtedly a definite purchase for any Nintendo fan out…

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…

  • 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…
