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...

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 belov...

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. T... Read More »

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 w... Read More »

The Evolution Of Remote Play

The Evolution Of Remote Play

Gaming on the move has evolved a lot over the years. With handheld consoles from the Gameboy to the PSP we’ve seen triumphs, we’ve seen disasters, and we’ve seen the mobile phone gaming platform burst upon the scene thanks to the iPhone and Android.

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 fo... 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 do... Read More »

Christopher Brookmyre’s Bedlam – Preview

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 f... 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, ... Read More »

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. Metro Redux. Rayman Legends. Grand Theft Auto V. The Master Chief Collection. The Last of Us Remastered.

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.

Mortal Kombat X – Preview

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...

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 certa... 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... Read More »
