Lawbreakers Gets A Gameplay Trailer Showing Off Multiplayer Arena Fight

On Wednesday, Boss Key and Cliff Bleszinski announced their new IP LawBreakers.

That has all changed now though, as this new gameplay trailer has… Read more »


Until Dawn Review – When Do I Go Home?

Horror’s been a tricky proposition for games in recent years, especially in the AAA space, where the incentive to create games in this genre has dropped near to zero. Titles like Silent Hill, Resident Evil and Dead Space have either faded away, turned more towards action or both. While the indie scene is riddled with… Read more »


One Of Until Dawn’s Most Gory Scenes Is Getting Censored In Japan

Until Dawn doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to representing gore. It can get down right grizzly at some points, never shying away too much from the nasty of what is happening. It appears that it in fact, it might be a little too hard edge for Japan. As Kotaku report, certain scenes are… Read more »


A Real Awesome Shovel Knight Amiibo Has Been Announced

I’ve been hearing rumors of a Shovel Knight amiibo for a while now, and the mere idea has had me buzzing.

Not Being Able To Archive Twitch Streams Of Until Dawn Was An Accident

Yesterday, I wrote that Twitch wasn’t archiving streams of Until Dawn, being a thorn in the side of some video content creators. Well, it turns out this wasn’t an intentional decisions.

Category: Video Games – Episode 48: Space Signs

R. Mika Has Been Confirmed For Street Fighter V

The other day, we learnt that we’d be getting a new Street Fighter V character announcement, which has now come to pass. As I noted was most likely, R. Mika is the character joining the roster, and she is quite…something. Her outfit and demanour are ridiculous, but that is obviously the point. I mean, her… Read more »

Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate Will Launch A Month Late On PC

Ubisoft have a pretty dire record with the PC. From Assassin’s Creed: Unity, to Watch Dogs and more, the publisher has just had a hard time pleasing fans on the platform.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 Shows Off New Art Style In New Trailer

A few weeks ago, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 pulled a bit of a weird one by totally changing its art style on a dime. Now it had faint whiff of cell-shading, as opposed to the clunky looking original style. And here is a look at the new design in motion. This trailer does little… Read more »

Transformers: Devastation Gets A Gorgeous Gameplay Trailer

I had feared that Transformers: Devastation was going to be a visual mess. A fast paced Transformer game inspired by a G1 artstyle…it could have been a garish clash of function and design.

Twitch Plays Dark Souls Has Now Beaten The Second Boss In The Game

I wrote about Twitch plays Dark Souls a few days ago, talking about the unorganised madness the whole thing was. The game was just too complex to really trust thousands of people putting in random commands at any one time. After flailing around in the starting area for two days, things have improved now as… Read more »

Hideo Kojima Wants To Create For The Rest Of His Life

The other day though, he gave the closest he has come yet to a statement on his intent going forward…. Read more »

New Web Series Explores The History Of Assassin’s Creed

Assassin’s Creed is only eight years old, but it feels like it has been with us forever. That is probably due to the sheer number of games we’ve had in all that time. In fact, it can be hard to remember which game innovated what and what came in at what point. That is where… Read more »
