War For The Overworld

Rock of Ages

Rock of Ages

This week is wrestling week at TheGameJar. Which means we’ve asked all our writers to share memories of wrestling games past and present. Today, Andy has taken a trip back through many games to look at the most electrifying man in sports entertainment… The Rock! (You might want to read this article with the video below playing.) When the idea... Read More »

Gaming Memories – WWF Raw

Gaming Memories – WWF Raw

This week is wrestling week at TheGameJar. Which means we’ve asked all our writers to share memories of wrestling games past and present. Today, Tim has taken a look back to the 16-Bit era of gaming to see if WWF Raw had got any easier in twenty years. Really, it’s fair to say I only know about wrestling because of video games. Neither of my ... Read More »

Super Dungeon Bros – Preview

Super Dungeon Bros – Preview

Super Dungeon Bros is a four-player game that brings some of the best elements of some of our favourite multiplayer indie games. You can see the inspiration of games like Castle Crashers. Dungeon raid, rouge-like, co-op smashing games have been a regular staple on people’s top console indie games lists although not many have done them too well. The... Read More »

Wrestling – A Battle of Genres

Wrestling – A Battle of Genres

This week is wrestling week at TheGameJar. Which means we’ve asked all our writers to share memories of wrestling games past and present. Today, Mick takes a look at the age old question: Are wrestling games fighting games, or are they sports games? It’s a Battle of Genres! It’s Wrestlemania season again, so I’m going to be tackling the quest... Read More »

WWE Network – Review

WWE Network – Review

This week is wrestling week at TheGameJar. Which means we’ve asked all our writers to share memories of wrestling games past and present. Today, instead of a game, Sean looks at an app which is making a lot of noise and gaining a lot of subscribers. The WWE Network app certainly has made a big impact since finally releasing in the UK. It’s al... Read More »

The Evil Within – The Assignment DLC Review

The Evil Within – The Assignment DLC Review

The Evil Within, whilst not what you’d consider a “surprise” hit, bearing in mind the game’s genealogy, was a game that I didn’t expect to make the impact with me that it did (it eventually took its place at number 2 on my personal list of 2014, and I probably scored it slightly too low at the time). Successfully marrying the intense action of his ... Read More »

Gaming Memories: WWF Smackdown

Gaming Memories: WWF Smackdown

This week is wrestling week at TheGameJar. Which means we’ve asked all our writers to share memories of wrestling games past and present. To start with, here’s Paul looking at a game that really did change the face of wrestling games. So this week sees the mighty WWE holding the biggest wrestling event of the year once more – The ...

Hotline Miami 2 Wrong Number – Review

Hotline Miami 2 Wrong Number – Review

Hotline Miami 2 follows on from the enormously successful indie game Hotline Miami. For those of you that have probably seen but not played it before, allow me to enlighten you as to the status quo. Hotline Miami is a 2D top down shooter that is played at a frenetic and unforgiving pace. The style, which takes an eclectic look at the 80s through th... Read More »

LEGO Jurassic World – Preview

LEGO Jurassic World – Preview

Hold on to your butts… Clever Girl… Life will find a way… I’m getting these out of the way early so I am not tempted to fill this preview with many puns. But it’s true, there are numerous moments throughout the history of the trilogy (soon to be quadrilogy) of the failed Dinosaur theme park that have adorned our popular culture both vis...

Not a Hero – Hands On Preview

Not a Hero – Hands On Preview

Not a Hero will have a lot of attention coming its way. Developer Roll7 won a BAFTA for their skateboard game OlliOlli and their platform shooter is equally as addictive. The game may hark back to the days of classic platformer design, things you’d likely see from a Spectrum, Commodore and occasionally 16-Bit consoles. But the look is very much of ... Read More »

Grim Fandango Remastered: Review

Grim Fandango Remastered: Review

One of the things me and my housemate share in common is our love for Grim Fandango. It’s a game both of us played when we were younger and still hold dear in our hearts. It was a game that was so unique that it stands prominently in our memories and would even make it onto my personal Top Ten list. In fact, we can still quote its many humorous lin... Read More »

Mortal Kombat X – Interview with Hans Lo

Mortal Kombat X – Interview with Hans Lo

The last time I saw and played Mortal Kombat X was back in August at Gamescom. Then we had a great little sneak peek and play with new character Cassie Cage, the daughter of Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade. Last week, more was announced as the story mode revealed multiple characters in a story set 25 years after the events of 2011′s Mortal Kombat... Read More »

EA Access: A Mid-Term Report

EA Access: A Mid-Term Report

Seven months almost to the day, EA took the bold step of releasing the EA Access service on Xbox One, offering discounts on EA digital purchases, early access trials of soon-to-be-released titles, and full games for you to download. The surprise announcement, coupled with the slightly cobbled-together nature of the service led many to quickly write... Read More »

Titan Souls – Hands On Preview

Titan Souls – Hands On Preview

Titan Souls is a very interesting game by three man team Acid Nerve and is being published by Devolver Digital. What started originally as a game jam project between friends has grown up somewhat and will make its debut on PC, PS Vita and PS4 in April. The premise is simple. Boss battles. The game is a series of boss battles against you, your sprit... Read More »

Life Is Strange: Episode One – Review

Life Is Strange: Episode One – Review

I hadn’t heard much about this game in the run up to its release other than it was a Square Enix game and you can control time. I’m a fan of the whole time travel/time control thing and it was only £3 so I thought, why not? The good thing about these episodic games is that if you don’t like the game you don’t lose out on tha... Read More »

Cities: Skylines – Review

Cities: Skylines – Review

Balance. Cities: Skylines has it. Whilst it is absolutely awesome to create the huge, truly 3D, Megalopolis that we’ve all yearned for since Sim City 4, city simulation games are actually a giant puzzle of balance. When you make a city, it isn’t just cool looking at the buildings? Isn’t it great to fly down the streets and notice the houses and car... Read More »

Gaming Memories: Spider-Man Part One

Gaming Memories: Spider-Man Part One

Super hero games tend to be rather hit or miss. Some rise to the challenge and blow me away. Others fade into the distance a memory best forgotten. There’s one character though, which has been a part of the gaming world since I can remember. A character that has been recreated on the video screen hundreds of times with some titles that I will happi... Read More »

Interview – War For The Overworld

Interview – War For The Overworld

War For The Overworld is a new isometric, real time dungeon strategy game by Subterranean Games. A Kickstarter funded project, the game may seem like a very familiar one but this group of super fans are working to make a new game that is better than the one that drew them towards the project in the first place. Sean spoke with Josh Bishop, the CEO ... Read More »

The Graphics Conundrum – Opinion

The Graphics Conundrum – Opinion

I’ve noticed a lot recently that there seems to be a lot of stock put on a games graphics. I’ve seen people on Twitter and sometimes Facebook express their anger that a developer has dared to not make a game run at 60fps. Or there are times when people have made PC mods for games to make them “look better” or “look more realistic”, or sometim... Read More »

Pier Solar and the Great Architects – Review

Pier Solar and the Great Architects – Review

Pier Solar and the Great Architects has one of the more interesting backstories of anything released in the last few months. Starting out as a 2010 Sega Megadrive release by a homebrew community (no, really), an HD remaster found its way onto PS3, PS4, PC, Mac, Linux, Ouya, Wii U, Xbox One, Dreamcast, Xbox 360, Android (no, really) late last year b...
