Will Google Stadia be any good?

Yesterday, the fledgling start-up company Google announced that it was launching a brand new gaming platform. Titled Stadia, the new service promises to deliver better-than-console quality gaming without the need for any actual hardware. Oof. Basically, all of the games will be running in a top secret Google powerhouse and will be transmitted by the power of the internet onto […]

I’m not ready for a diskless console

Rumour has it that the next iteration of Xbox hardware will be a diskless console. Now this makes a lot of sense – apparently, 80 per cent of video game sales (in the UK at least) are now digital, so you can hardly accuse Microsoft of trying to impose a lifestyle onto unwilling consumers. Like it or not, digital is […]

What is the Mad Box console?

You’d have to be slightly mad to launch a new console in this day and age, right? Right. Slightly Mad Studios is doing just that, and it’s being dubbed the Mad Box. The news of this latest hardware development came about after the CEO of Slightly Mad, Ian Bell, took to Twitter to announce his company’s console vision. Here’s how […]

Is the PlayStation Classic really worth it?

Yesterday, Sony announced that it was going to be launching a brand new console this Christmas. Well, sort of. The PlayStation Classic is a miniaturised version of the original PlayStation machine from the mid 90s, and will come pre-loaded with a wealth of old school games to give retro fans their fix. I was actually surprised by how excited everybody […]

It’s official: PlayStation is the most relevant gaming brand in the UK

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. (At least, compared to its gaming competitors.) But who was the overall winner? You probably won’t […]

Puddles! Why it’s okay to criticise the Spider-Man graphics

Okay, “criticise” might be too harsh a word. Analyse? Scrutinise? Twitterise? You may not be aware, but something of a debate has been taking place on the webosphere after a series of screenshots from the upcoming Spider-Man title found their way online, probably from slightly mischievous review sources who have early access to the game. Anyway, the eagle-eyed, never-forgetting surfers […]

2018 game releases: Top tips for managing your wallet

2018 game releases! There are many still to come. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a video game schedule quite so intense or jam-packed, at least not in terms of the major franchises being represented. Over the next four months, we can expect… Marvel’s Spider-Man – September 7 Shadow of the Tomb Raider – September 14 Life is Strange […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Is there a problem with the Shadow of the Tomb Raider graphics?

Historically, Tomb Raider graphics have been at the forefront of innovation. When the original game was released in 1996, its lushly-realised caverns and valleys sent shockwaves through the world of gaming. Then, in 2003, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness – whilst glitchy – looked absolutely incredible. Similarly, 2013’s Tomb Raider reboot raised the bar with some noticeably strandy hair atop […]
