Blown away

If there was an annual award for 'Game Most Often Judged by Cover', The Witness would take it this year, hands down.

Sure, your only real interaction with the...

Game of the Year 2016: #8 - DOOM

#8 - DOOM

Room for DOOM

Things could have gone badly wrong for DOOM. After a long development time, a severe lack of single player footage, and a complete absence of reviews on launch day, the title relied on word of mouth throughout its first week of availability. Is it any good? What's the campaign like? Has the multiplayer been improved since its beta?...

The 10 Best PS4 Soundtracks of 2016

Hitting the right notes

Another year gone. Times flies, doesn't it? 2016 may have been, erm, less than stellar in a lot of respects, but the games industry was by no means one of the problems. Quality reigned supreme across so many titles it's hard to keep track. Not to be left behind, though, was the music from these games, which delivered some...

Seeing What's Left with What Remains of Edith Finch on PS4

Giant Sparrow has done a great job of crafting an engaging narrative, and it...

We've been blessed with well over two decades worth of first-person shooter games and in that time, especially the last six years or so, the industry has been saturated with the genre, with titles delivering varying degrees of quality. This over saturation, while a sobering cornerstone of the violence in video game argument, has also been...

Lethal VR on PS4 Is Less Point Blank and More Point W*nk

Burn out

In a way, we kinda feel sorry for Three Fields Entertainment. The teensy indie start-up carries the burden of being "the Burnout guys", which means that expectations are raised every time it so much as farts. Of course, exposure is no bad thing for a team with about three employees to its name, but it also means the disappointment is all...
