New Dark Souls Trilogy Collector’s Edition Revealed – Yours for £450/$580

The Dark Souls Trilogy just got a whole lot more ‘Dark Soulsier’.

But now every Dark Souls fan east of the Atlantic Ocean can boast accessContinue reading “New Dark Souls Trilogy Collector’s Edition Revealed – Yours for £450/$580”

Hands on Disco Elysium – An Absolute Mindfunk (preview)

  Funnily enough, I find it hard to know where to start when presented with 150 playable games. And as I wandered up and down the isles of the indie section of this year’s EGX showfloor, that’s exactly what happened. Then, a neon glow. A custom-made sign shining lambent green reading “Disco Elysium“. Like mothContinue reading “Hands on Disco Elysium – An Absolute Mindfunk (preview)”

The Surge – The Good, The Bad, and The Augmented DLC Review (PS4)

  Hours of exciting playable content … thrilling showdowns with brand new enemies … an interesting story that enriches the narrative of the base game – this latest DLC for The Surge has none of that. And what The Good, The Bad, and The Augmented does offer is pointless, repetitive, and even broken in some places. Essentially, The Good, TheContinue reading “The Surge – The Good, The Bad, and The Augmented DLC Review (PS4)”

Hands on with Metro Exodus – Less Dark, More Larks (Preview)

Metro 2033 has to be one of my favorite games of all time. And one of the most underrated, in my opinion. No other title has quite been able to match the same levels of immersion that Metro provides. The extreme claustrophobia of the subterranean train tunnels, the gruesome beasts twisted by radiation, the almost occultContinue reading “Hands on with Metro Exodus – Less Dark, More Larks (Preview)”

No, Microsoft Did Not ‘Win’ E3 2018 – Their Conference Was a Massive Let Down

And no, I’m not exaggerating. Microsoft have once again let gamers down with their underwhelming press conference at E3 2018. But that didn’t stop Phil Spencer weaving some lexical magic to try and convince us that ZERO new IPs was a good thing.

Microsoft Announce Gears of War 5 at E3 2018, Coming 2019

It’s a direct continuation of JD and the gang’s story, following on from the events of Gears of War 4. If the short cut scene shown at the conference is anything to go by,Continue reading “Microsoft Announce Gears of War 5 at E3 2018, Coming 2019”

Dear Microsoft, E3 2018 is Your Moment to Stop Disappointing Us

Ah, the glory days of Microsoft and their Xbox … nowadays little more a hazy memory in the minds of gamers everywhere. And this is coming from me, an Xbox superfan. Well, former Xbox superfan.

New Final Fantasy 7 Remake Image Leaked in Unusual Manner …

Details regarding the Final Fantasy 7 remake are extremely thin on the ground. So when twitter user DKHF spotted something odd on Naoki Hamaguchi’s computer monitor on Business Division 1’s updated recruitment page, they were quick to spread the word. Naoki is the Final Fantasy 7 remake’s project lead, so it seems he may have forgotten to minimize whatContinue reading “New Final Fantasy 7 Remake Image Leaked in Unusual Manner …”
