What is Apex Legends?

Good news if you’re a battle royale fan! Another free-to-play title has landed in the gamesphere, and it’s available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Origin on PC. Titled Apex Legends, the game is set within the universe of the Titanfall franchise, although it’s not a direct sequel so prior knowledge of the IP is not essential. Which is just as well. *Googles Titanfall… […]

Will a Resident Evil 3 remake be considered?

Sometimes you just can’t get enough blood-stained corridors and undead monstrosities (unless you’ve gone to the Winchester to wait for it all to blow over.) The remake of Resident Evil 2 has been out for mere days, but there is already speculation that Capcom might be considering a re-imagining of another classic Resident Evil title – that is, 1999’s Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, which originally […]

Is 3D gaming on its way to the Nintendo Switch?

You may soon be able to play your Nintendo Switch like a Nintendo 3DS, if a recent patent application is to believed. Well, not that we’d have any reason to doubt a patent application, but whether anything will ever come of it is a different matter. In September 2018, Nintendo filed a patent for ‘Eye Tracking Enabled 3D Viewing,’ which […]

Yes, I’m going there! After nearly 23 years of gun-toting archaeology, Lara Croft has raided her way through no fewer than 11 canonical video game titles – and considerably more if you factor such outings as Tomb Raider Anniversary and The Curse of the Sword. For the purposes of this piece, though, I’ll be looking at all of the main ‘pillar’ releases in […]

Science proves that Xbox players are superior

Firstly, apologies for the somewhat click-baity title, but it was too juicy to resist! I stumbled across this news story during my daily Google Alerts skim and it seemed amusing enough for a write-up. Science, it would seem, has finally demonstrated that people who game on Xbox consoles are in fact the more talented players. Discuss. Actually, there isn’t that much […]

Tomb Raider has arrived on the Nintendo Switch (sort of)

Great news – the original Tomb Raider game from 1996 has just been released on the Nintendo Switch! The beloved title, which was unceremoniously shunned from 2018’s PlayStation Classic console, has finally found its way onto the Nintendo handheld. It’s a bit like evolution on steroids. However, for Nintendo it’s a kick in the pants, as the release is actually borne out […]

When can I get my next Pokémon […]

Is a Sonic Adventure remake on the cards?

I suppose we need to be cautious about reading too much into those “off the cuff” comments that people make in interviews, but this is the internet, and I am only too happy to fan the flames of speculative discourse. Kuu! Sonic Team’s Takashi Iizuka recently gave an interview to Retro Gamer in which he spoke about the development of […]

My favourite games of 2018

Now is the winter of our disc content! I think I played more new games in 2018 than in any other year. Actually, I wouldn’t be surprised if this was the case for a lot of people, particularly given the barrage of new titles that assaulted players’ wallets in the later months. And to be honest, I don’t think I […]

So for those of you who are less familiar with the segmentation of the Tomb Raider franchise, seasoned raiders usually divide the series into two camps: the Core Design titles (which comprises Tomb Raiders one through six) and the Crystal Dynamics titles (everything after 2003.) I love lists, and I’ve previously described my top five favourite levels of the ‘classic’ (Core Design) period of […]
