    Shed tears no more, the previously announced Far Cry Classic now has a North American release date of 11th February.

    At this point, we’re convinced that the fine folks at FuturLab scoff a special brand of Corn Flakes for breakfast. This eager editor has energy in abundance, but even he can’t match the output of the award-winning Brighton-based studio. It should come as no surprise, then, that mere days after Surge Deluxe’s release, the team...

    One more treasure for Lara

    For once, January was a relatively quiet month here at Push Square in terms of reviews.

But as they say, the show must go on –...

    There’s something deadly about the combination of addictive gameplay and online leaderboards.
