  • 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…

  • 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.

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.

  • 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.
