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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
