    Review The Evil Within 2

    Subdued spooks

    There’s a certain genius to madness. That’s especially true for crafting superb survival horror that balances the irrational and bizarre with careful consideration. The Evil Within, which put players in a psychopath’s mind-made reality, was one such example. There was tension-inducing enemy encounters amid erratic pacing...

  • News Tekken Players Don't Use Tutorials, Says Series Director

    Tekken the p*ss

    Tekken 7 is a bloody good fighting game -- one of the best on PlayStation 4, as far as we're concerned -- but its lack of an introductory tutorial has always seemed like an oversight. Without one, newcomers are all but forced to look up guides and videos online in order to fully understand the fundamentals of the combat system...

    Pre-order culture

    Another day on the internet, another reason to get really angry with the games industry because everyone involved is an absolute b*stard.

    Size doesn't matter?

    Review Middle-earth: Shadow of War

    Shelobs me, Shelobs me not

    Middle-earth: Shadow of War takes the best parts of its predecessor and gives them room to breathe. It's a sequel that opts to expand rather than alter, but that's fine when Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor debuted with such strong core mechanics. Those of you who played the first game will find yourselves in the...

    Review Gundam Versus

    G spotting

    The feeling of satisfaction that you get when your beam rifle finally finds its mark and your opponent spirals into a ball of flame is the best part of Gundam Versus. After three minutes of desperately tense, twitchy movement and praying that your attacks connect, watching as the camera cuts away to an exploding mobile suit is the perfect...

Like we say, this has been going on for years, but...

  • News Assassin's Creed Origins Looks Like a Very Attainable Platinum

    'Khamun get it

    Your time in Ancient Egypt could well be acknowledged by a Platinum pot, as Assassin’s Creed Origins’ set of Trophies look really rather reasonable.
