Why Games Need to Ditch the Sequels and Embrace The Anthology

Why Games Need to Ditch the Sequels and Embrace The Anthology

Good news everyone! This console generation is finally coming to life! Huzzah! How, you ask? Well, for starters, there have already been some great games released. There was the ‘fifth’ Grand Theft Auto (it’s actually the 15th GTA title), that Witcher 3 seemed to get some pretty universal praise, ther... Read More »

Slash Dash – Review

Slash Dash – Review

Ninjas are the epitome of cool warriors. Real Ninjas, though, not the LEGO Cool Ninjas. I grew up with a huge fascination on these Japanese assassins and the martial arts, and swords of course, held a great mystery for me during my childhood. I fell in love with the old films such as Enter the Dragon and American Ninja... Read More »

Tachyon Project – Review

Tachyon Project – Review

When it comes to reviewing twin-stick shooters for the site, recent luck has not been on my side. Budget title, Sixty Second Shooter, tried to do a little something different with the genre by zooming in a little on the action and introducing the idea of actual physical levels to take on, but the execution left a lot t...

The Fall – Review

The Fall – Review

Being a fan of puzzle games, mostly because I feel like a genius when I figure out a complex puzzle, I was intrigued by The Fall. I felt I needed to finish this so I could add it to my list of puzzle games bested! The Fall was developed by Over The Moon Games and originally released in 2014 on Steam, GOG, The Humble st...

All The Best Game Music Is On SoundCloud

All The Best Game Music Is On SoundCloud

You know this probably sounds like a self explanatory title, but if you haven’t ever heard of SoundCloud it is a streaming music site that is used by a lot of unsigned bands and DJ’s/Composers to showcase their talents. Those can be original songs, remixes, podcasts and anything in between. But it’s a... Read More »

Football is dead. Long live MEGAFOOTBALL!

Football is dead. Long live MEGAFOOTBALL!

The European soccer season is slowly lurching back into action and, in video game circles, that means one thing – first footage of the next iterations of FIFA and PES has been released. As both titles rapidly approach their release date, we can now make some fairly solid statements. We’ll undoubtedly get the two best l... Read More »

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 »

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 ... Read More »

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 ... Read More »
