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 […]

5 reasons to love No Man’s Sky

With a major new No Man’s Sky update about to launch on the PlayStation, PC and Xbox, the game about infinite exploration in a procedurally-generated universe is suddenly the hot topic de jour. Indeed, creator Sean Murray has recently given a candid (and fascinating) interview to Eurogamer, which I recommend you read. Much of the No Man’s Sky debate tends to centre […]

Spyro for the Switch? Official website hints at Nintendo release

Spyro for the Switch? It’s not beyond the realms of possibility. After all, the Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy made its way onto the console about a year after its PS4 debut. This latest speculation comes after an erroneous posting appeared on the official Spyro website (now gone, alas) in which the upcoming Spyro Re-ignited Trilogy was listed as being available for pre-order on […]

Is this the worst Tomb Raider game ever made?

As a staunch Tomb Raider fan, I feel a bit treacherous writing a post like this. Not unlike Lara herself, recklessly prising the Amulet of Horus from the Tomb of Seth, it’s not my place, and I could unleashed a world of trouble. How can I write a post about the ‘worst’ Tomb Raider game of all time? That implies […]

The original Sonic the Hedgehog is coming to the Switch!

I wonder if there are any gamers out there who have yet to play the original Sonic the Hedgehog? If so, this could be their chance to indulge, as Nintendo has announced that the original Megadrive game is coming to the Switch this August. It’s being bundled with Thunderforce IV as part of the Sega Ages lineup, which sees a number of classic […]

No Man’s Sky update: Real multiplayer incoming!

The next No Man’s Sky update is about to send gravitational waves through our procedurally-generated universe. Yesterday, Sean Murray and Hello Games released an exciting new trailer for No Man’s Sky: NEXT, showcasing some of the major changes that are about to touch down on PlayStation, PC and – in due course – Xbox One. Here it is… No Man’s Sky originally launched in […]

Tomb Raider on Blu-Ray: Is it any good?

Firstly, let me point out the lengths I went to in order to get hold of Tomb Raider on Blu-Ray – such is my commitment to the cause. The battle of Al Survive vs. The Unhelpful Passive-Aggressive Staff Members of Guiseley Morrisons is one that Lara Croft herself would have been reluctant to enter. I pretty much had to talk […]

Hoping to buy Octopath Traveler? Good luck!

Being able to buy Octopath Traveler could actually be the biggest challenge of the Switch’s latest JRPG – given that it’s sold out everywhere. Okay, I mustn’t downgrade myself to sensationalist, apocalyptic journalism. It’s not sold out everywhere. That would be ridiculous. It’s no Crash Bandicoot 😉 However, customers hoping to buy Octopath Traveler at amazon.com might have to wait a while, as […]

Shadow of the Tomb Raider music is unleashed!

Square Enix has unleashed the Shadow of the Tomb Raider music on the world! Well, some of it. Last week, three new tracks were uploaded onto the official Tomb Raider YouTube account, offering a tantalising glimpse into the atmos that’s going to envelope us in Lara’s latest adventure. It’s all been realised by a “unique music team” led by a […]

SDCC 2018: What next for Sonic?

San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC 2018) is coming up this week, and there’s some good news for Sonic the Hedgehog fans. Well, hopefully. The event, which kicks off on the 19th July, will boast its very own Sonic panel, self-effacingly titled Sonic the Hedgehog’s Way Past Cool Panel. Which sets the bar pretty darn high in terms of expectations. According to […]

They’ve finally made a Sonic toaster!

“No way! I can’t believe this!” Sega has done the unthinkable and FINALLY released a Sonic toaster. Great! Now we can… erm… uhhh… In marketing, they say the trick is to fulfil needs that people don’t realise they have, and Sega clearly had this at the forefront of their minds when they decided to make an appliance that could burn […]
