The newest 4.0 firmware update for Nintendo Switch includes some pretty substantial additions to the console’s currently lacking–in comparison to its competitors–feature-set. Games need to have the video capture option toggled by a developer Video capture is probably the most notable inclusion in this update,…..
Microsoft’s 2014 ultimate collection of the main-series Halo games was a great, if severely broken, anthology of some of gaming’s best shooters. With four full Halo games running in full 1080p 60fps, although Halo 2: Anniversary suffered from numerous performance issues, The Master Chief Collection…..
In the generation of remasters, remakes and reboots, I’m not sure anyone out there was on their knees wishing for a remaster of 2006’s Rogue Trooper. It’s weird: Rogue Trooper isn’t a game I’d ever think I’d hear of again. After all, the sixth generation…..
Id Software have finally announced a solid release date for the Nintendo Switch port of Doom 2016, and it’s coming sooner than you’d think. Launching on November 10th, 2017, Doom 2016 is one of the few modern AAA third party titles, apart from Skyrim and…..
While The Evil Within was a pretty mixed bag overall, it was a welcome return back to the time of second-era Resident Evil games. It may have been a shoddy revitalization of a genre that had been phased out in place of a plethora of…..
Telltale Games have been caught using the image of Russian diplomat Andrei Karlov’s assassination in the newest episode of Batman: The Enemy Within. Assassinated on December, 2016 in Ankara, Turkey, Karlov was shot at point-blank range by 22-year-old Turkish police officer Mevlüt Mert Altintaş whilst giving…..
Video games go through a lot before they end up in consumers’ hands. In fact, a lot of games are a complete mess mere weeks before release. That said, we never really get to see much of in-development titles outside of very selective clips shown…..
When I went to EGX 2017, I honestly couldn’t stand the thought of waiting in a forty-five-minute queue to play The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Sure, it’s a great game—the second best Elder Scrolls game, just after Morrowind—but it’s a game I’ve played hundreds of…..
Assassin’s Creed is almost like the Western version of Dynasty Warriors. Year after year, Ubisoft would squirt out another iterative entry in the series with slightly bolstered mechanics, reused animations, and the same gameplay loop again and again until we all got sick and tired…..
When you think of the Xbox brand you don’t exactly think “child-friendly”. Sure, you think of twelve-year-olds calling you every obscenity under the sun, but there aren’t really many exclusive titles for the three-generation console brand that are predominantly aimed at kids. After all, your Xbox…..
After the blazing success of Christian Whitehead’s Sonic Mania, SEGA and Sonic Team are in a bit of sticky situation. Every executive under the SEGA brand must know by now that 3D Sonic is pretty much just one big joke; failure after failure, meme after…..
The traditional story of the twenty-year-long manga Naruto has ended. While the character is still kicking (I think) in the narrative successor Boruto, Naruto, for the most part, has finished his journey from knucklehead ninja to Hokage of the Hidden Leaf Village. But when a…..
Battleborn may be one of the unluckiest video games to release this generation. After bad sales, middling reviews and even turning into an unsuccessful free-to-play title, Battleborn has officially ended development. Announced by the game’s creative director Randy Varnell, Battleborn is finally settling into an…..
Unless you’re a pesky little korok seed hiding underneath a Hyrulean rock, you’ve probably heard of a pretty important game called PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. After smashing records all over the place since its release, the multiplayer Battle Royale game has now become the most concurrently played…..
Leatherface, the human-skin-wearing antagonist of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise, has been added to the asymmetric horror multiplayer game, Dead by Daylight. Inspired by the Wisconsin serial killer Ed Gein, Leatherface is a terrifying horror icon that has haunted moviegoers since the late seventies. Available…..
The announcement of Doom’s 2016 sequel arriving on Nintendo Switch was one of the most bizarre, surprising and exciting announcements during Wednesday’s Direct Showcase. Of course, pushing such a modern and intensive game onto Nintendo’s tiny tablet will require a few cutbacks not seen in…..
French game publisher Ubisoft have announced a brand-new game called Atomega, a first-person multiplayer shooter by the development team behind Grow Home. Releasing on September 19th–yes, this year–Reflection’s new IP is set “at the very end of time where reality is rapidly dissolving”. You play…..
The Steam release of Microsoft’s fantastic fighter exclusive Killer Instinct will support full cross-play between Steam, Xbox One and Windows Store users. This means that players who were loyal to the prior versions of the game won’t have to re-purchase any content to be able…..
Earlier today, Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment announced that Shadow of War would be receiving a launch day DLC that would add Forthog Orc-Slayer, an immortalized version of deceased Monolith Executive Producer Michael Forgey, into the game. The proceeds of which would go to charity. Unfortunately,…..
Middle Earth: Shadow of War will have an optional DLC created to honor Monolith’s late executive producer, Michael Forgey. After losing a battle with glioblastoma, a rare form of cancer, back in May 2016, Monolith lost one of the minds behind the massively successful Shadow of…..
A fan remake of the original Tomb Raider Trilogy’s best entry, Tomb Raider 2, has received a playable demo on PC, and it looks beautiful. Made using Unreal Engine 4, the in-development fan remake of Tomb Raider 2 aims to bring Lara Croft out of…..
After the release of the NES Mini, it would appear every long-dead-but-still-kicking gaming company is looking to cash in on the remarkable success of Nintendo’s over-expensive emulator box. While Sega is bringing back the Genesis/Mega Drive, to a middling degree of success, Atari are also…..
Breath of the Wild’s cel-shaded graphics can be absolutely beautiful at times, but have you ever wondered what the game would look like without them? The answer is simple: horrifying. Link himself is particularly haunting with dead doll-like eyes and a blank facial expression Posted…..
Do you remember having a terrible PC? I do, I had one just last year! Remember using sketchy online methods to lower games below their intended minimum settings and at resolutions so low you can barely make out the details on a character’s face? Well,…..
Sonic Mania, while being out on consoles for two weeks already, featured a two week delay for the game’s PC port mere days before it was scheduled to release. Now that the PC version has finally been released into consumer’s hands–or digital Steam library–they’re unhappy,…..
