Your hex is on fire

Not so long ago, very little was known about Bound by Flame.

Review: Farming Simulator (PlayStation 3)

Farming Simulator (PlayStation 3)

Under thresher

Much like life on the land, Farming Simulator will not be for everyone. The agricultural adventure’s plodding, methodical pace is a far cry from the high-octane antics that the majority of developers tend to plant on the PlayStation 3, and as such it will demand a very determined personality to reap anything from the experience at...

From a technical point of view, Cyanide's Tour De France: The Official Game is really impressive

Not only is it rendering upwards of thirty bicycles on screen at any one time, there's also a great sense of speed in some of the behind-player shots. We're just curious how Tour De France will actually play. Cyanide's promising lots of "respect" and "loyalty" mechanics, but we want..
