Destiny – Review

Destiny – Review

Destiny is quite possibly the most ambitious console game we have seen, other than Grand Theft Auto V. Quite the statement I know, especially given what you have already read elsewhere. The traditional review calls for positives followed by negatives and then a summary. But I think what is needed more is some objective input on those negatives that... Read More »

New Magicka 2 Trailer Karaoke Competition, More Exploding Cats

The lovely people at Paradox Interactive have just sent us over their new karaoke trailer for Magicka 2 and… Well I am in no way, shape or form going to describe it to you. You should just watch it below. Suffice to say that my personal highlights, other than a tune that is completely stuck in my head and is making want to go and fish out my old Ya... Read More »

TheGameJar WANTS YOU!

TheGameJar WANTS YOU!

TheGameJar is over two years old. TWO! That means we’ve seen four Doctor Who’s, one and a half new royal babies and more Apple iPhone releases than we can count, since we’ve started. The site has changed, grown, adapted and, we hope, entertained you for all of that time. Or if you’re new here then welcome, I’m sure you... Read More »

My Love Affair with Bungie

My Love Affair with Bungie

If you are reading this then it means you aren’t playing Destiny at this moment. Which is fine. Maybe you’re at work and haven’t received it yet. Or maybe Bungie’s new outing and its first in the next-generation sphere isn’t for you. Which is also fine. I however need to confess my love for Bungie. Don’t get me w... Read More »

Destiny – By The Numbers

Destiny – By The Numbers

So it’s almost upon us, that time we’ve been waiting for since E3 2013. The time when Destiny comes to us and the Traveller will occupy our time solidly for the next 3-4 months. So how many of us are actually waiting for that? And what is the deal with the numbers behind it? Let’s have a little run down, shall we? Publisher Activi... Read More »

World of Warships – Preview

World of Warships is the latest offering from Wargaming, the mad geniuses behind the free to play successes World of Tanks and World of Warplanes. This time they’ve taken to the water and while we were at Gamescom, we managed to get hands on with the game and was guided through it by producer Mike Fedorov. The BigWorld engine has created some... Read More »

Christopher Brookmyre’s Bedlam – Preview

I had heard about Christopher Brookmyre’s Bedlam before I went to Gamescom. I am a writer, I write and as such I end up following the printed prose form and its news. So to hear that a book and a game had been created by the Scottish author, I was naturally intrigued. I’d also been hankering for something for a while. I wanted a game th... Read More »

Sixty Second Shooter Prime Review

Sixty Second Shooter Prime Review

November 22, 2005 is an important day in games history. Firstly, it was the day that the Xbox 360 launched. Secondly, it was the day on which Xbox Live Arcade became a legitimate platform for digital distribution on console (it had, of course, existed briefly on the original Xbox, but on a much smaller scale). Lastly, it’s the date that – to this d... Read More »

While we were at Gamescom, we got to have a look at Lego Batman 3 Beyond Gotham. The next instalment in the DC universe from TT Games and Warner Bros does exactly what the name suggests, goes beyond Gotham City. You will be travelling in to space to save the Earth from Brainiac and visiting far flung planets along the way to add new and interesting... Read More »

Tanki Online HD – Preview

Russia had quite a big presence at this year’s Gamescom and you might be forgiven for not even hearing of Tanki Online in Western Europe. However over 40 million people are registered to it across the globe and have been smashing other people in their browsers since 2009. In 2015 though, the game is going HD. The premise is one that we have b... Read More »

Magicka 2 – Preview

Magicka 2 – Preview

Magicka was a surprise hit written by eight university students from Sweden (what is it with that country and break out hits?). Magicka 2 not only promises more of the same but an inspired improvement on our multiplayer wizard blasting fun. The wizards are gone, all but extinct thanks to the Wizard Wars. This has left co-operation between wizards r... Read More »

Devil’s Advocate – The Pros and Cons of Next-Gen Remakes

Devil’s Advocate – The Pros and Cons of Next-Gen Remakes

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. Metro Redux. Rayman Legends. Grand Theft Auto V. The Master Chief Collection. The Last of Us Remastered. If you had been stranded on a desert island for the last 12 months, you could almost certainly be forgiven for wondering if “next gen” existed at all. It’s been around 9 months since the Xbox One and Playstation ... Read More »

Gaming Memories: Mortal Kombat Part 3

Gaming Memories: Mortal Kombat Part 3

Hello and welcome to this, my final trip down Mortal Kombat lane. It’s been a wonderful time, being able to ramble on about one of my favourite franchises. Sometimes I have to admit to feeling like a little old man, full of stories about the good old days! I have to say the comments and general feedback on these articles has been greatly rece...

Mortal Kombat X – Preview

One of the first things I did when I started writing about games was I did a review of Mortal Kombat, the release from 2011. So naturally I was very excited to get my hands on the new Mortal Kombat X and see how exactly the next generation power has managed to add to the already smooth and visually opulent violence. In truth, it adds quite a bit. T... Read More »

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor – Preview

So not a lot was really known to us about the new Lord of The Rings RPG, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. Thanks to GamesCom, we now know a lot more and does it look deep, stunning and exciting. Who knew that Sauron could be this cool? Set before the famous book in three parts by J.J.R. Tolkein that we all know and love, but after the last stand of ... Read More »

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 »
