Game of the Month: February 2015

February 2015

Stupid game names, robots, Goku, and pottery

February's always an interesting month. We begin to see titles trickling through into the market, signalling the start of the inevitable spring rush that's on its way – either that, or these games are just desperate to avoid being crushed by the encroaching onslaught. Regardless of their reasons for...

Shadow of Mordor Gets Its Blood Soaked Hands on Another Game of the Year Award

Talion to the next

We remember the days when people just weren't sure about Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. Gaming tie-ins of existing properties are always a bit of a gamble, but very few people were able to foresee developer Monolith's future success. Indeed, its creation even went on to win our 2014 staff Game of the Year vote, along with a...

Wasteland 2: Game of the Year Edition Wanders to PS4 This Summer

Desert dangers

We're not sure how many Game of the Year gongs Wasteland 2 actually won, but that's not stopped inXile Entertainment from using the disingenuous moniker for the PlayStation 4 port of its Kickstarted role-playing game. A follow-up to Brian Fargo's not-quite forgotten favourite, the sequel puts you in control of four Desert Rangers,...

A Very Happy Birthday to You, PlayStation 2

The third place

Seeing as Sony ceased production on the PlayStation 2 a little while ago, we assumed that we were done celebrating the system's birthday, but what the heck – pour one out for the old guy. The black behemoth turns 15 today, if you take into account its 4th March, 2000 launch date in Japan. Those were certainly heady days, as not...

El Presidente Arrives on PS4 from 24th April in Tropico 5

Time to take charge

While there are definitely people still disgruntled with the PlayStation 4's lineup, we've been impressed by the sheer variety of software that's hit Sony's latest machine. One genre that it's been sorely lacking in, however, is the city building simulation – but fortunately, Tropico 5 will fill that gap from 24th April in...
