Diablo 3 on Switch: The news everyone’s been waiting for?

It’s official – Diablo 3 is coming out on the Nintendo Switch! You can buy it on the, ahh, erm, Soonish of Somtober, as Nintendo hasn’t actually issued a release date, other than vaguely aiming for “probably fall.” The action-packed RPG from developer Blizzard actually came out six years ago on the PC, followed by a PS3 and Xbox 360 launch in […]

Is the Fortnite craze harming your child?

No, the Fortnite craze probably isn’t harming your child. Actually, I can’t believe that I’ve allowed myself to be sucked into this discussion of click-bait proportions, but I read an article today that tickled me. It was from the Birmingham Mail and the headline read: “Parents urged to keep kids off Fortnite – here’s 20 ways to do it.” Urged! Kids! Keep […]

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Why Luigi had to die

You know it’s a tough day when video game characters make headlines on BBC News. Last week, Nintendo unceremoniously killed off one of its mascot characters in an act of blood-curdling brutality. Luigi the Italian plumber stared into the jaws of Death – literally – as he was dealt a weighty blow by one of Castlevania‘s most formidable villains. So […]

The heartbreak of Sonic Adventure 2

This is probably the understatement of the century, but many of us develop emotional attachments to video games. It’s probably what fans the flames of nostalgia when we get to see ‘re-imagined’ versions of Crash Bandicoot or Spyro the Dragon on our screens; I certainly feel a pang of Something when I see Tomb Raider 2 load up, or even when I […]

The 5 best underwater Tomb Raider levels

With Shadow of the Tomb Raider just one month away, the internet has been a flurry of excitement over the fact that Lara Croft can finally swim! I say “finally” – Lara has been proficient at the breath-stroke since 1996, but the current iteration of my favourite archaeologist has been a little slower to master the skill. Anyway, this seemed like the perfect time […]

Bond with your horse?! New Red Dead Redemption 2 details

Don’t get me wrong – I was very excited to hear the new Red Dead Redemption 2 details when Rockstar dropped the latest gameplay video yesterday. It sounds like the team are creating something really special, and if the title plays as good as it looks… Well, it will probably go on to be a flingin’ flangin’ smash hit y’all. Here’s the […]

Tomb Raider walkthroughs: An interview with Stella

STELLA IMAGE CREDIT: Fabi (@GLaDyGamer on Twitter) OTLEY, WEST YORKSHIRE – ENGLAND: It’s a thundery winter’s afternoon in 1999. I’m holed up in my stepsister’s bedroom desperately trying to claw my way to the end of the Tomb of Qualopec in the very first Tomb Raider game. Rain lashes against the windows as I wrestle with the controls, and my stepsister calmly reads […]

The first 15 minutes of Shadow of the Tomb Raider!

IGN has released a video of the first 15 minutes of gameplay from Shadow of the Tomb Raider! Well, to be honest – it mostly consists of cutscenes, but it’s all very pretty; the footage has been captured on the Xbox One, and is presented in shiny 4K. Following a high octane opening, we flash back in time two days to find […]

You will die in Shadow of the Tomb Raider

When a video description features the words “terrifying,” “deadly,” “brutal” and “darkest,” you know you’re not about to watch a furry kittens video. The latest footage from Shadow of the Tomb Raider shows off some of the pant-wettingly horrific stuff that Lara Croft will come across on her low-profile perambulation to avert the apocalypse. Check it out… As you can see, […]

Green Hill will be in the Sonic movie!

Here’s a fun bit of news. A leaked photo from the filming of the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie confirms that the much-loved Green Hill Zone will be featured as one of the story’s locations! Check out this tweet from Twitter user @twip98… The Sonic Movie is saved pic.twitter.com/9xu9gsdlc9 — Ben (TWIP) (@twip98) August 2, 2018 I find this really funny considering […]

Review: No Man’s Sky NEXT update

At the weekend, I finally got to sit down with the No Man’s Sky NEXT update and find out what all the fuss is about. And boy, has there been a lot of fuss! When No Man’s Sky first launched in 2016, the developers received death threats(!) over the purported “missing features” such as multiplayer and faction types, and there were complaints that the […]

Top 5 hardest Tomb Raider levels!

When I talk to people who have never played a Tomb Raider title, their assumption is usually that Lara Croft games are mindless endeavours with an unhealthy pre-occupation with the female form. Trying to convince people that these are intelligent, story-driven action-adventures, crafted with artistic genius, often makes me sound like I’m trying to justify my teenaged obsession with an exploitative franchise.

Will Death Stranding release on the PS5?

Few games are shrouded in as much mystery as Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding. Except maybe Cyberpunk 2077, but at least we have a vague idea as to what it could conceivably be about. When it comes to the pending Death Stranding release, we can’t even be sure of its platform, let alone its genre. The question that’s currently doing the rounds is whether this […]

Say hello to the new Pikachu charger!

The world is now a happier place – there’s a new Pikachu charger for sale! Or at least there will be. If you live in Japan. I’m back-peddling all the time. Cheer up though – it’s good news! Nintendo has announced this rather fun Pokémon-themed device to brighten up your bedroom, which is basically Pikachu’s backside, BUT if you stop […]

Best Sonic game ever? It’s top marks for Sonic Mania Plus

Is Sonic Mania Plus the best Sonic game ever? Well – let’s come back to that. It’s certainly the highest reviewed Sonic game in the last 25 years, which is amazing news. Check out this tweet from the official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account… With a 90 Metascore on Nintendo Switch, Sonic Mania Plus is now the highest-rated Sonic game in 25 years. Thank […]

Cyberpunk 2077: Why all the hype?

Cyberpunk 2077 has been in the public consciousness for quite some time now. Indeed, the title has gained an almost mythical status in the gaming community given that, until recently, so little was known about it, other than the fact that it’s an adaptation of the tabletop game Cyberpunk 2020 and that it’s of the cyberpunk genre (spoilers.) However, at this year’s E3 […]

Team Sonic Racing: There’s no ‘I’ in Team?

With (both) Sonic Forces fans itching for more platforming action, the next game in the blue hedgehog series might not be quite what they’d envisaged. Team Sonic Racing is scheduled to release in Q4 of 2018 and, as the name suggests, it’ll be in a different league to previous titles Sonic Mania and, ahem, Sonic Boom. Of course, racing isn’t an entirely new concept in the […]
