In other words, this has been a really poor week for new releases. Indeed, traditionally styled role-playing game Lost Sphear absolutely...

    Review Rogue Trooper Redux

    Clone army

    PS2 curio Rogue Trooper is an unlikely candidate for the remaster treatment. Taken from the pages of eclectic British comic 2000AD, Sniper Elite developer Rebellion had a decent stab at trying something new with the always swamped third-person shooter genre. Receiving positive reviews, it’s since faded into obscurity.  Hopefully,...

    Tekken 7 has been out for a good few months now, but the game hasn't really been adjusted or added to all that much since launch. We've had a few relatively minor updates as well as the Ultimate Tekken Bowl downloadable content, but it's safe to say that some fans were hoping for a bit more.
