Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel – Preview

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel – Preview

If there is any game that’s going to blur the line between a tie-in/sequel between two incredibly wacky and successful games, it is going to be Borderlands. The Pre-Sequel sets itself between Borderlands 1 & 2 and tells the story of how Handsome Jack became Handsome Jack and captures once again the craziness that the first two games provi... Read More »

Dead Island 2 – Preview

Dead Island 2 – Preview

The first Dead Island was a very good game, despite what the game was compared to the marketing. You’ll be pleased to know that this time around Yager who are making Dead Island 2 know that maybe the message was a bit off. But the internet spoke and videos of comedic deaths and hilariously overpowered DIY weapons were cleaving their way into our de... Read More »

Escape Dead Island – Preview

Escape Dead Island – Preview

Compared to the next generation offering of Dead Island 2, the current generation offering of Escape Dead Island is completely different. Dead Island is now seen as a franchise and developers Fatshark have created a very enjoyable single player experience. The story is that you are Cliff. A son of a wealthy media mogul who’s a bit of a socialite do... Read More »

EA Report – GamesCom 2014

Back in to the big belly of the noisy beast that is GamesCom, we got a chance to see the EA briefing that was streamed first hand. And, if we’re honest, we were expecting bigger, right? To start with, we were given some gameplay footage of Dragon Age: Inquisition (not the last offering from Bioware yet). It certainly looks good and the tactic... Read More »

Xbox Report – GamesCom 2014

It’s that time of year again where the post-E3 glow has faded and another mid-summer pep up is needed to remind you to spend your Autumn cash. However before we go in to anything, I feel that, given the fallout from earlier, that a glossary is needed for your understanding. So here we go: Exclusive: A game or DLC that is only available on one... Read More »

EA Access: The Pros and Cons

EA Access: The Pros and Cons

Since EA announced their new EA Access plan, the web has been ablaze with everyone’s ideas and thoughts on the new project. It’s been the usual mixture of positives, with a few negatives. Opinions swirling in a cup, ready to boil over. I’ve been watching it with keen interest; where is this going? What does it mean for future gami... Read More »

Oddworld New N Tasty Review

Oddworld New N Tasty Review

“Another remake?” you say? Usually I would say the same but after the direction in which the Oddworld series took I am glad that Just Add Water decided to return to its roots and remake the original Abe’s Odyssey for PS4. Usually when a 2D-platform series makes it’s way into the 3D world the gameplay loses what made it so good in the first place. S... Read More »

Retro Corner – July 2014

Retro Corner – July 2014

Hello and welcome, to what I hope will turn into a new monthly column. As you can probably guess, a lot of my time recently has been spent looking back into the gaming past. I’ve been reliving older games, classics that I missed the first time round. What I’ve found is an amazing community and seen just how big the retro scene has been ... Read More »

MX vs ATV Supercross – Preview

MX vs ATV Supercross – Preview

Normally when you hear the sound of trail bike engines, it’s due to some annoying 15 year old who’s just passed their CBT, ragging the poor restricted thing up and down your street at 1am. But this? This is where the sounds are meant to be heard. It’s been a while since we’ve seen an MX vs ATV game. Mainly because the owners... Read More »

TheIndieJar: Gods Will Be Watching – Review

TheIndieJar: Gods Will Be Watching – Review

Empathy Simulator seems to be a popular theme of games at the moment, and that exact title will probably show up next to ‘Grass Simulator’ or whatever trash shows up on Steam Greenlight these days. When you have fully formed characters and a well constructed plot, games are capable of breaking your heart. At it’s worst, you have digital characters ... Read More »

How I Survived The Steam Summer Sale On A Mac

How I Survived The Steam Summer Sale On A Mac

… I didn’t So in case you didn’t know, I don’t have a PC. Well I have a PC I can use but I am an iMac user. In fact my decision to go to Apple computers was partly because I get too distracted by gaming on a PC to be productive. So how exactly did I manage to succumb to the wallet emptying frenzy of the Steam summer sale? Well indie gaming pl... Read More »

TheIndieJar: Free games from the Space Cowboy Game Jam!

Games Jams are popping up all over the place, which is great for developers to explore themes in quick games and for people who want free stuff to play!

TheGameJar Podcast 094

The podcast team are back TODAY for episode 94 of TheGameJar podcast! It’s a few of the usual suspects, plus a few new voices you may not have heard before!

Alan Wake – Returning to Bright Falls

Alan Wake – Returning to Bright Falls

Every six months this happens to me. Pretty much like clockwork in fact. Everyone has their go-to game that they pick up and play again; in fact everyone probably has several. I myself have several but this one game in particular keeps surging itself back in to my psyche like the darkness in it is making me one of the Taken. Maybe its because I am ... Read More »

Alien: Isolation in #PreLCgate

TWEET TWEET – All aboard the Twitterversy! Today’s slagging match is all to do with The Second Coming of Horror Gaming Christ, Alien: Isolation. Not content from people shouting about how it’s a horror game with no guns (yeah, like when did that ever work?), then getting confused when it actually does have guns, they’ve anno... Read More »

Why All The Doom 4 Anti-hype, Bethesda?

Why All The Doom 4 Anti-hype, Bethesda?

Trying to read between the lines when it comes to gaming news can be tricky at times. My current brainpower is currently attempting to decipher the news coming from Bethesda/ID over Doom 4. When I first got in to writing about games, Duke Nukem Forever was coming out. In fact I reviewed it but the news and the hype that Gearbox’s Randy Pitchford ma... Read More »

A Look Back at The Bitmap Brothers

A Look Back at The Bitmap Brothers

In 1988 a much younger, less jaded me was about to start paying attention to just who was making the video games I spent so much time playing. Today, we’re all intimately familiar with names like Infinity Ward and Bungie, but back then, developers weren’t rock stars. I didn’t pay any attention to past releases from the same studio...
