  • The Wind, It Speaks To Me

    At long last we’ve been given a decent look at Ghost of Tsushima, the new game from Sucker Punch, coming to PS4 on July 17th 2020. PlayStation’s State of Play is an 18 minute long look at various elements of the game. We get a look at exploration, combat...
  • Goblin Slayer

    The trouble with goblins is, nobody takes them seriously. They’re just goblins after all; little more than an irritation. How many games have you played, or stories have you read/watched, where goblins are a monster enemy? 10, 20, 100? What proportion of those treated them as anything more difficult...
  • Connecting with Bumblebee

    The Transformers cinematic franchise is a funny old beast. Seeing the first one, directed by Michael Bay, all those years ago was truly breathtaking. He made these giant transforming robots, not only look good but look like they belonged in the real world. It’s an amazing feat of CGI...
  • The Dark Side of Alchemy

    Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood caught me out big time. I really wasn’t prepared for what would happen in Episode 4. I don’t think I could have been less prepared for it if I’m honest. “What happened?” you ask; I’m not going to tell you as that would spoil it. What...
  • You Spin Me Right Round

    The clouds are thick, and threatening. The rain is hammering down. I can barely hear the rumbles of thunder or the rumble of the afterburners over the constant beeping from my cockpit. Beep. Beep. Beep. Beep. It never stops; not even for a moment as the missiles close in....

After creating the Alpha Elixer, which is basically the Super Soldier serum Captain America is jacked up on, he successfully transforms the country’s army into an impenetrable force. However – PLOT TWIST! – Alpha Elixer mutates all of the soldiers into mutants....
  • Red Dead Redemption II Trailer drops!

    Watch it here:     Still with me? did you take it all in? Maybe watch it again:   My god it’s glorious. So the new trailer has quashed any rumours of playing as Jhon Marston and will instead focus on outlaw Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde...

    Hyper Light Drifter Is Consuming My Life

    Imagine Shigeru Miyamoto, William Gibson and Ultravox collaborated on a game. It would be an LSD-induced cyberpunk fairy tale. That game exists and it’s called Hyper Light Drifter. Inspired by 8-bit and 16-bit games Heart Machine has created an Action-RPG that looks nostalgic, sounds nostalgic but doesn’t control like...
  • A New Dynasty

    In the run up to E3 I find myself anticipating one announcement in particular that would make me very happy. Koei Tecmo recently announced their line up for E3 and told us that they have a secret project in the works that they will announce at the show. Personally,...
