Drink’n Games – Metal Slug 3

Drink’n Games – Metal Slug 3

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 belov...

Returning to Tamriel – The Elder Scrolls Online

Returning to Tamriel – The Elder Scrolls Online

Returning to Tamriel brought some mixed emotions to me. Originally, I was going to review The Elder Scrolls Online again, a year after I last did this with its original release on PC, with it’s new Tamriel Unlimited moniker. Surely enough had changed and moved in that year on that I could go back and almost revis...

Back(wards) To The Future

Back(wards) To The Future

Perhaps it’s nostalgia, or perhaps it’s the growing realisation that – as console games become more and more sophisticated – I’m no longer capable of playing to a high standard, but when I looked back upon E3 2015, the one announcement that still excites me more than any other is the announcement of Xbox 360 backwards ...

E3 2015: Bethesda Recap

E3 2015: Bethesda Recap

As far as debut’s go, this is probably one that will live long in the memory for all of the right reasons. Bethesda took a giant leap to the stage at E3 (at the Dolby Theatre which hosts the Oscars, no less) with an already impressive level of hype. Doom, whilst teased last year to select convention attendees and... Read More »

Rock Band 4 – Preview

Rock Band 4 – Preview

It wasn’t actually that long ago that I put down Rock Band 3. It was probably about six months ago after I had an aching need to complete The Beatles Rock Band (something I’d forgotten I’d already done). I then went in to the old habit of looking through songs and making a playlist of mostly Pearl Jam songs and rocking... Read More »

The Future Belongs to the…Angry – A Look Back At RAGE

The Future Belongs to the…Angry – A Look Back At RAGE

I will freely cop to not being the sort of dude to play a game more than once, at least not within the next few years. Nowadays I can blame time constraints, but even as recently as three or four years ago I would happily devour some game for a month or so straight, and then move right on to whatever the next one is. M... Read More »

FUT Is The Drug – FIFA Ultimate Team and Me

FUT Is The Drug – FIFA Ultimate Team and Me

I’m not ashamed to say that online gaming has never really appealed to me in the same way that it does for most these days, and this tends to be for a couple of main reasons. 1) I tend to play at times when most of my friends don’t. 2) I am what scientists would call a “bit of a shitebag”, when it comes to testing my s...

A Fading Light From Better Days – The Misadventures of Tron Bonne

A Fading Light From Better Days – The Misadventures of Tron Bonne

I felt an awful lot of things when The Misadventures of Tron Bonne suddenly announced its presence on PlayStation Network. All of them positive, of course, unless you consider ‘drink-spilling surprise’ to be negative (depends on the drink, I suppose). Because no matter what else I was going through at that ...

Xbox One – How Opinions Can Change!

Xbox One – How Opinions Can Change!

I can still remember when Microsoft announced the Xbox One. Their ideas behind games having a licence locked to the console, trying to do away with the used games market and making digital the way to go. I was furious, if I could burn their ideas I would have done. Outraged, I made my mind up their and then. This gener... 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... 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 ser... 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... Read More »
