What’s Next For Resident Evil?

What’s Next For Resident Evil?

Resident Evil has been mentioned quite a lot recently. In the normal run up to Halloween and when any survival horror game is released, the game of PlayStations past is invoked as if grand royalty has entered this panicky jump-ridden realm. It has also come up because of The Evil Within, a game that our writer Andy reviewed most positively, as Resi... Read More »

Driveclub – Review

Driveclub – Review

Driveclub poses a question that is probably quite a pertinent one for this new generation of console gaming. It doesn’t mean to pose it, not in the slightest. And it possibly deserves a little more credit than what the question suggests but the question is there. Is it enough for a game, especially in the racing genre, to be graphically excellent a...

Are too many games broken on release? Discuss!

Are too many games broken on release? Discuss!

Broken games aren’t anything new, although it does seem that we have had a glut of them in recent months. Assassin’s Creed Unity looks set to join the post-development woe befalling Halo’s Master Chief Collection and DriveClub. But has it always been this way for games to be released with problems? In a word, yes. Sadly the game medium and the ease... Read More »

Ten Spooky Facts About Left 4 Dead

Ten Spooky Facts About Left 4 Dead

With ol’ All Hallows Eve well and truly past, we thought it was a great idea keep the scary vibe going and do a spooky top ten facts. I’m not a massive horror fan to be honest, yet one game always finds me going back for more. Its a great horror survival game and I can’t wait for a third chapter. I’m talking about the one and only Left 4 Dead... Read More »

Call of Duty Advanced Warfare – Review

Call of Duty Advanced Warfare – Review

It’s a little strange heading in to Call of Duty Advanced Warfare because I haven’t played a Call of Duty game in four years, my last being Black Ops. The series has come a long way in this, its first truly Next Gen outing. It hasn’t held back on its punches either by drafting big names like Kevin Spacey of American Beauty and House of Cards fame a... Read More »

MX vs ATV Supercross – Review

MX vs ATV Supercross – Review

If you read our preview of MX vs. ATV: Supercross back in July, you’ll know a bit of the history behind that franchise. But we’ll give you a little bit of a recap just in case. Nordic Games is one of the many people who snapped up some properties after the great collapse of THQ. One such thing they did was restart Rainbow Studios who ha... Read More »

Shadow Warrior – Review

Shadow Warrior – Review

Shadow Warrior is of a different time and a different age. Yet it comes to us with the sheen and veneer of a new game. But it’s not just the license that makes this game ancient. Released last year on PC and given the next-generation port treatment, the now barely acceptable racial tropes of the mid 90s 3D Realms shooter/slasher got a modernization... Read More »

The Evil Within – Review

The Evil Within – Review

I’m in something of a quandary over Shinji Mikami’s latest, The Evil Within (Bethesda, Xbox One/PS4). In around a thousand words’ time, I have to give this game a score, because that’s how reviews on this site work. I have a score in mind (and, of course, by now you’ll already know what it is), but I find myself looking quizzically at that score an... Read More »

Drink’n Games HALLOWEEN SPOOKTACULAR: New Ghostbusters II

Welcome to Drink’n Games! A semi-regular-ish feature wherein our intrepid American correspondent and all around snobby jerk Tim tries pairing a beer he’s never tried with a game he loves, under a set of completely arbitrary rules, and records the results for both scientific study and the entertainment of YOU, our beloved reader! Got suggestio... Read More »

The Game Jar’s Scariest Gaming Moments

The Game Jar’s Scariest Gaming Moments

We don’t get scared. None of us do… Ok, well we might actually get a bit scared, especially when it comes to video games. So, given that it is Halloween, we’ve asked out writers to give us a moment of their gaming life when they experienced their scariest moment in video games. There’s no red rings of death or end level crashes he... Read More »

Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition – Review

Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition – Review

The way I look at Sleeping Dogs and this Definitive Edition release is thus: If you were an adolescent man in the early 2000’s you undoubtedly have them in the back of your DVD collection. Or might have recently sent them off to a trade-in site. I’m referring to the Hong Kong Legends DVD releases that showed some of the early careers of Jackie Chan... Read More »

The Greys – Of Zombies and Internal Growth

The Greys – Of Zombies and Internal Growth

The folders of the vast electronic void that are labelled “video games” have been a bit rubbish to traverse lately, right? Some might say it has been horrible and disheartening to even open your own Twitter feed. “Why”, then, “do I dedicate so much of my time and thought whilst subjecting myself to a thrifty lifestyle for these things?” a sane man ...

WWE2K15 – Preview

Like an RKO out of nowhere, it’s time again for the franchise that layeths the smack down on the fighting game genre. WWE2K15 is the latest venture into the WWE universe but things are a little different this year. When you first heard that 2K had taken the WWE franchise, you probably got very excited given their heritage with the NBA series.... Read More »

Review – Styx – Master of Shadows

Review – Styx – Master of Shadows

Styx, the Master of Shadows, is a goblin. To be precise he is the first goblin. In a fantasy world made up of elves and humans, Styx is there to rob them blind. Taken prisoner and forced to escape incarceration so he can steal the heart of a big underground tree – which the humans keep locked up and which the elves need the sap of to grow in ... Read More »

Review: D4 – Dark Dreams Don’t Die

Review: D4 – Dark Dreams Don’t Die

Picture LA Noire. Got that in your head now? The historical accuracy of the surroundings? The relatively staid nature of the lead character? The highly believable characters around Phelps who helped to flesh out Rockstar’s vision of 1940s Los Angeles? Good. Now, throw all that in the bin. This is a Swery65 game, son! Historical accuracy? Pfft, yeah... Read More »

LEGO Batman 3 Beyond Gotham – Interview with Matt Ellison

LEGO Batman 3 Beyond Gotham – Interview with Matt Ellison

On this day of DC Universe fun, we got a second interview in as many months with TT Games about LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. This time, Sean got some extended time to sit down with producer Matt Ellison from TT Games to talk about all the new things we’ve seen. We’ve just seen a lovely demo of the game, including London looking spectacularly... Read More »

Revisting DC Universe Online

Revisting DC Universe Online

A couple of years ago, I was lucky enough to be asked to review Sony’s and DC’s new Massively Multiplayer Online game, DC Universe. I was quite impressed yet, as with most MMO’s, I found my interest quickly waning. Thus my subscription duly ran out and it sat upon my shelf collecting dust.  It has now changed to a Free To Play model and I found mys... Read More »

The Rising Cost of Add-Ons and DLC

The Rising Cost of Add-Ons and DLC

Somewhere along the line, we lost faith as gamers that we were getting all that we paid for. Downloadable Content (DLC) has become a sticking point for many consumers who believe part of the game they paid for has been held back so the publisher/developer can milk some more heard earned coin from your digital pocket. This is regardless of the price... Read More »
