Reaction: The Good Intentioned Game Awards Needs a Little Tightening Up

The Good Intentioned Game Awards Needs a Little Tightening Up

Games rise fine

It’s so easy to be cynical in this industry: one misstep and we pile on a given publisher or platform holder with a perverse form of glee. Geoff Keighley, the Canadian journalist who both bank rolled and organised last night’s The Game Awards, will have already been aware of this going into his big show – after all, the well...

This Is the New Game from the Team Behind Gone Home

Tacoma Bell

A fair few of the trailers at last night’s The Game Awards shindig seemed decidedly light in content, and Tacoma was one of them. The next title from Gone Home developer Fullbright, there’s no word yet on whether it will even come to the PlayStation 4. What we can be sure of, however, is that it will take place in space, and have a...

Dying Light's New Story Trailer Is Brash, Brooding, and Beautiful

Heart of darkness

If the trailer Techland revealed for Dying Light at The Game Awards today teaches us anything, it's that the game is attempting to tell a much more mature story. Indeed, the clip begins with a hifalutin quote from famed philosopher and playwright Albert Camus, who would undoubtedly turn in his grave if he knew that his work was bei

Brothers Developer Snags a Ticket to Ride with EA

Freight fever

When does an indie developer stop being indie? We’ve no idea, but businessman Peter Moore seemed pretty stoked about EA Games’ acquisition of ‘indie’ developer Hazelight Studios.

Hear Geralt Scrape His Voice Across Gravel in The Witcher 3's Newest Trailer

Excuse me while I sandpaper my throat

One of the highlights of The Game Awards 2014 was hearing Geralt's ridiculously gruff voice as a new The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt trailer whisked us away from the mundanity of the show. Teasing a second playable character, the CD Projekt Red representative merely told viewers to "keep an eye out", so we think that...

Until Dawn Still Looks Like the Best Worst Game Ever on PS4

Up all night

This editor’s made no secret of his penchant for PlayStation 4 exclusive Until Dawn, and the Supermassive Games developed survival horror looked brilliantly bad in its The Game Awards showing tonight.

PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 Sinks Like a Lead Zeppelin

London's burning

With the press for The Order: 1886 being a bit bungled so far, Ready At Dawn needed a big showing this weekend. Unfortunately, tonight’s world premiere trailer at The Game Awards wasn’t quite what we had in mind. While it showed plenty of frankly jaw dropping cut-scenes, it was particularly light in the gameplay department...

The big one

2014's busiest month has come and gone, leaving us with heated debates over what should win our coveted Game of the Month award.

Super Stardust Ultra Soars onto PS4 in the Near Future

Planetary perfection

We were kind of joking when we pleaded for a PlayStation 4 version of Super Stardust earlier in the week – but if you insist, Sony. The platform holder has set a course for the PlayStation Blog today to confirm Super Stardust Ultra, the latest entry in Housemarque’s outstanding twin-stick shooter series. You
