I fucking despise the Call of Duty (CoD) series. Or, rather, I despise what it has become: a symbol of everything wrong with the triple-A gaming industry. For your consideration, I offer a clickbait-style list of why this mind-bogglingly popular series needs to jump off a cliff, or at least take a break for a […]

Developer: Guerrilla Games Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment Platform: PS4 Score: 4.5/5 *Review copy supplied by publisher*   I used to think Guerrilla Games were a one-trick pony, capable only of producing generic shooters that look pretty but have nothing else going for them. Seriously, no one is going to go out of their way to […]

Sometimes the most fascinating news stories in gaming don’t come from the games themselves, but the people who make a living playing them. One such story, one of the most bizarre sagas in the history of games journalism, has come to a satisfying conclusion and I’d like to offer a (perhaps belated) hot take on […]

To that I defiantly say nay! If I’m going to give out some […]

After something of an inconspicuous start it seems that this console generation is starting to pick up some steam, courtesy of the two biggest names in the business. The PS4, dominant for much of this first part, has had some serious missteps, while Xbox under Phil Spencer seems more determined than ever to win back […]

★★★★ Developer: Nerial Publisher: Devolver Digital Platform: PC, Mac, iOS, Android   I’ve never been a very big fan of Tinder or anything of its ilk. It’s probably killed any chance I had of a love life, but, to me at least, the idea of instantly judging someone based on a (probably fake) picture of […]

By the time you read this the good people at Sony Interactive Entertainment will probably have announced the PS4 Neo, along with a new slim model of the original PS4, at a media event in New York. Certainly, the Neo is interesting enough by itself, but the latter has something of a buzz surrounding it, […]

★★★ Developer: Hello Games Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment Platform: PS4 (reviewed), PC   In my last piece of 2015, No Man’s Sky was one of the numerous games I was hyped for this year, probably more than anything else. All through the gaming community, the hype for this game was beyond anything I have seen […]
