I've been gaming since before I could stick my fingers together in Art class. When I'm not hunting for gamerscore on my Xbox, I'm likely buried in comics or books! Everyone's got a hobby, mine just consume my entire life...

Gamers still crave single player campaigns

In the space of two days Rockstar became the most tweeted about phenomenon since Donald Trump announced he was going to run for president (probably). Everybody is hailing the move to make Red Dead 2 as a masterstroke by the company, given the success and unbridled brilliance of the first game (yeeees I know about Red Dead Revolver, but I’m just counting Redemption here). All the hype and noise points to one revelatory discovery: it doesn’t matter how good your multiplayer might be, gamers still crave a good single player campaign!

Are HD Remasters Really Worth It?

Gaming is becoming more and more advanced as the years go on. The introduction of VR technology and the way AR is breaking new ground just goes to show what we as gamers are starting to expect from our games. Games look more lifelike than ever before and challenge us in ways we have never even dreamt about. So it begs the question why developers are so strung up on giving us “HD remasters” of past titles. And why do we lap them up so much?

Dishonored #2 – Comic Review

Titan Comics have delivered the second instalment in their Dishonoured story and annoyingly it follows a familiar trait of being muddled, confusing and slightly pointless.

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Review

For transparency’s sake, I’ll admit I never actually played Transformers: Fall of Cybertron when it was originally released on Xbox 360. I think I always meant to, seeing as the first game was as good as it was, but other things got in the way and in the end the Fall of Cybertron just got forgotten about. Well thank god it’s been brought to Xbox One.

Solar Shifter EX Review

Gaming has come a long way over the past 30 years, with the evolution from 2D platforming games to 3D open world blockbusters; it’s fair to say that the industry has become a monument of advancement in both technological and story-telling fields. That said, it’s easy to forget your ‘roots’ when you’ve come such a long way and, as it stands, “Solar Shifter EX” is a reminder of just how far things have come. Whether or not that’s a good thing though…I can’t really tell.

The Top 5 Picks to Look Out for at Gamescom 2016

It’s that time of year again. The time when thousands of excited gamers flock to Cologne all in the shared goal of getting their mitts on the latest upcoming games. Sadly, I’m not counted among the fortunate who are able to actually go to Germany this year, however that doesn’t mean I’m not just as excited as everyone else to see what is unveiled.

Are “Ultimate Editions” worth the cost anymore?

It seems that when a new game is unveiled to the masses there are always umpteen different variations of the same game on offer, which all deliver the same base experience, but all offer something different in some slight way. They also differ greatly in price. So it begs the question, when more and more gamers are acquiring their games digitally (and games are getting more and more expensive), are “Ultimate editions” of games really worth splashing all that cash on anymore? What do we as consumers/gamers really get from the deal?

Dishonored #1 – Comic Review

If you’re like me, then you’ll have no doubt heard of a little game called Dishonoured. Ok, I lied it’s not a “little” game. In fact, I truly believe that Dishonoured was an absolute breath of fresh air to the gaming industry at a time when FPS games were looking all too repetitive and dull. The fantastic news is that the folks at Bethesda and Arkane Studios have seen fit to grant us lowly townspeople, not just with a HD remake of the original game for Xbox One, but indeed a sequel as well. What a time to be alive! So you can imagine my excitement grew even larger at the news that Titan Comics were bringing out a Dishonoured comic to expand even further upon the lush and bountiful mythos created in the first game. Stop it Bethesda, you’re spoiling us.

Does Project Scorpio Spell Doom for Xbox One?

The eve is nigh on the release of the Xbox One S. This smaller, more powerful machine looks set to put the gaming community very much back in Microsoft’s pocket as it boasts a plethora of improvements over its older brother. However, being a proud owner of the “older sibling” in the Xbox One family, I find myself wondering just how much things will change with the introduction of the Xbox One S and more importantly, whether or not Microsoft’s “Project Scorpio” will see the end of the Xbox One for good?

Cast of the Seven Godsends Redux Review

I have a small confession to make. I am not in fact old enough to remember the glory days of the arcade. You know the ones, the big tower arcade machines which stood in the corners of shops and pubs, dolling out the delights of games such as Street Fighter or something similar. So the notion of a side scrolling action RPG style game, rendered in 16-bit style graphics and set to a soundtrack that wouldn’t be out of place on a ‘This Is The 80’s’ CD can only be described with one succinct word. Retro!

How does Star Wars Battlefront’s latest free update change the way we look at the game?

While the Force may not have necessarily been as strong as it could have been with Star Wars Battlefront, it’s gotten a whole lot stronger with the latest update.
