WWE2K15 – Preview

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 »

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 »

Drink’n Games: Splatterhouse 2

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 suggestions for... 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 »

Shadow Warrior – Preview

Shadow Warrior – Preview

Shadow Warrior may be recognisable to those of you with longer memories as a PC title from the brains behind Duke Nukem 3D. It may also be recognisable to those of you who have shorter memories and remember a reboot of the game that came out on PC last year. Well this year it’s getting the console treatment and the next-generation will not be... Read More »

So at TheGameJar we thought it was about time that we unearthed some of his best fun facts… 10) Robot... Read More »

Project Cars interview with Andy Tudor

Project Cars interview with Andy Tudor

Project Cars is the new offering from Slightly Mad Studios. Sean got to sit down and chat with Creative Director Andy Tudor about the game at EGX. Project Cars is a very big, graphically awesome simulation. Simulation is the key word here I suppose compared to everything else that’s out there. Yeah, I think the word simulation or simulator kind of ... Read More »

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments – Review

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments – Review

The legend of Sherlock Holmes is arguably much bigger than the character of Sherlock Holmes, although myth would be more of a pertinent description given that he is fictional. In recent times the harsh and terse nature of his personality has come through with the popular TV adaptation by the BBC and Steven Moffat. Even though that itself has become... Read More »

Escape Dead Island interview with Anthony Cardahi

Escape Dead Island interview with Anthony Cardahi

Escape Dead Island is coming soon and Sean managed to grab some words at EGX with Anthony Cardahi, a creative producer at Deep Silver, and talk about the game. Escape Dead Island. Very very different. It’s a very different choice of game for the Dead Island franchise. How did you come about that process? So it’s a mixture of several ele... Read More »

Lords of the Fallen – Hands on Preview

Lords of the Fallen – Hands on Preview

The last time we saw Lords of the Fallen was back in April. At that time, we got to see a big demonstration of a level by executive producer, Tomaz Gop, and had a few words with him. This time, he gave us the game for an hour and personally guided us through our play through! Which was nice, seeing the developer enjoying you playing and noticing ho... Read More »

It’s time again for Codemasters to let us in for a little preview of their efforts with F1 2014, which in real life has been a new and exciting time for the sport.

Destiny – Two Weeks On

Destiny – Two Weeks On

It’s been two weeks since Destiny burst forth into our lives and a week since the scores of reviews had their say on its confusing story and absolute beauty. So how have we all got on since we took our critical hats off and got down to playing the game for ourselves? Well, frankly, excellently frustrating. That would be my two word comment. I...
