The Fallout 76 beta controversy

Okay, I’m going to do my best to disentangle this one! I’m not a Fallout player but I’ve been following the coverage for the upcoming game with interest, and this week saw the first public round of Fallout 76 beta testing – an ideal opportunity for the developer Bethesda to iron out any bugs and stress-test the online servers. The original idea was for […]

Pokémon Go: A puzzling surge in popularity

You may think that Pokémon Go was a flash-in-the-pan craze that won the mainstream imagination for two whole weeks in 2016 before vanishing into obscurity, but you’d be wrong.

PlayStation has ranked third in the UK for brand relevance, according to a recent report. The investigation, conducted by Prophet, surveyed 11,500 UK consumers and measured their feelings towards 240 different brands, ultimately concluding that PlayStation had the most meaningful impact on people’s lives.

Is a Special Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Switch bundle on its way?

Could a special Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Switch bundle be on its way this Christmas? This may seem like a strange thing to be speculative – or indeed conspiratorial – about, but there’s nothing the internet likes more than grainy leaked photos of products that haven’t yet been announced.

Spider-Man reviews: Is it good?

The first Spider-Man reviews are in! The brand new, PS4 exclusive title from Insomniac Games lands today and – if you’re on the fence – the, ahem, “web” is already hosting a range of opinions to aid your decision-making.

Cyberpunk PC specs: Can your computer run it?

Wow, it’s fair to say that this came a little sooner than I expected.
