Is Cuphead going to join the Smash Bros. roster?

Oh man. Cuphead. I’m reluctant to say this owing to the roasting one reviewer received for his inability to play the game… But Cuphead? Yeaahhhh I suck at it. And I’m also not great with Smash Bros., although my brawling skills are gradually improving. So what would happen if Nintendo went out on a limb and combined these two punishingly difficult franchises?! It’s fair […]

Anthem reviews: Is it any good?

The first Anthem reviews have begun to surface on the webosphere. The SF-inspired third person shooter-cum-RPG launches this week, courtesy of the developer BioWare and publisher EA. Set against the backdrop of a mysterious world that’s been seemingly abandoned by its creator gods, the player takes control of a humanoid ‘freelancer’ in a custom exoskeleton, in a desperate bid to save mankind […]

When is Astral Chain coming out?

In the midst of an (arguably) lukewarm Switch Direct in February 2019, Nintendo did make a couple of intriguing announcements about upcoming games, not least the cyberpunk-inspired Astral Chain, which looks something like the lovechild of Final Fantasy and Cyberpunk 2077. But when is Astral Chain coming out, and will it be worth playing? Well, the first answer to that question is the 30th August 2019, […]

The original Crash Team Racing stuns youths

Prepare to feel old. The developer of the upcoming Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled has revealed that some of its younger contributors were… bemused, when they tried their hand at the original game. For those of you who don’t know, Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled is a remake of the popular Crash Team Racing game from the late 1990s. It’s a faithful ‘remastering’ of the original title […]

Switch releases 2019: Three reasons to be excited

Wow, it seems ages since we last had a Nintendo Direct! I think the last ‘general’ one was in September 2018, as the one that followed in November was dedicated to that small indie title known as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. So, whilst we wait for something concrete from Nintendo, I thought I’d put a little something together to tide us […]

Disney is happy with EA’s work on Star Wars

This news might sting if you were unhappy with Star Wars: Battlefront II and were hoping that someone would come along and bring balance to the Force. Disney’s CEO Bob Iger is apparently very happy with the relationship between Disney and EA, and sounded optimistic about how that relationship might play out in the future. First, some context. Iger was speaking […]

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 […]

Huge thanks to everyone who downloaded and tried out the #DMC5 Xbox One demo! As of today, it will […]

Is Pokémon Crown the next Pokémon game?

Let’s weigh-in on some internet conspiracy theories – it’s been a while. Like many people, I’ve recently reached the end of Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and whilst there appears to be a wealth of intriguing post-game content, my sights are now set on what other delights the Pokéverse can offer me in 2019. When can I get my next Pokémon […]

Kingdom Hearts 3 has leaked

The more I track video game news, the more I realise how strangely common it is for titles to leak onto the webosphere looong before their official launches. But in the case of the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3, could a new record have been set? The upcoming game from publisher Square Enix isn’t due to hit shelves until January 25th (if […]

Fallout 76 bugs: Bethesda addresses key issues

I wouldn’t want to be the Betheseda community manager right now. As you may have heard, the studio’s latest game Fallout 76 launched a couple of weeks ago (after a slightly controversial beta period) and instantly gamers discovered a slew of serious bugs and other glitches that were tarnishing their game experiences. If anything was going to echo the mood of a […]

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has leaked

With less than two weeks to go until the release of the hotly-anticipated Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, it would appear that a number of super-lucky fans have managed to get hold of the game early. Nintendo isn’t actually too bothered about this. It considers ‘no publicity to be bad publicity’ and has allowed the subsequent YouTube videos to remain, hoping that […]

What is the No Man’s Sky: Visions update?

I really respect No Man’s Sky. I’ve always said it’s a game that I will defend to anyone, and if you’re one of the people who didn’t feel as though you were getting good value for money when it launched in 2016, I think it’s fair to say that the developer Hello Games has more than made up for it since.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: What is Spirits Mode?

I think this blog post is going to be more for my benefit than anybody else’s! During its recent Direct, Nintendo shared some new information about the upcoming Spirits Mode that will feature in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. I say “new information” – it was technically an announcement of the worst kept secret in the video game industry, as some canny […]

New AAA Five Nights at Freddy’s game planned

Uhh, hello. Hello, hello. Five Nights at Freddy’s creator Scott Cawthon has revealed that a new triple AAA addition to the franchise could soon be on its way. In a lengthy blog post on Steam, the video game developer updated FNAF players on his current plans for the game series, including the interesting proposition that jump-scare fans could soon have a big […]
