  • The Future of Rocket League

    Rocket League has been a huge success for developer Psyonix. Since launching 5 years ago (as of next week), in July 2015, it’s changed a great deal. There have been experiments with arena designs, game modes, items and battle-cars; some of which were successful and others not so much....
  • Welcome To Salvage Saturday!

    I don’t know where to start with Blackbird Interactive’s latest game; Hardspace: Shipbreaker. It’s so unlike any other game I’ve played that it’s difficult to draw comparisons to help me contextualise it for you. Here’s the blurb on Steam “Equipped with cutting-edge salvaging tech, carve & slice spaceships to...

    Frontier Developments have announced the next chapter for their immersive Space Sim MMO Elite: Dangerous.

  • Rocket League at Dreamhack Montreal (2019)

    Dreamhack Pro Circuit took place last weekend in Montreal, Canada. A Rocket League LAN tournament with a selection of the best teams from across the world competing to become champions. One of a few such tournaments held around the world throughout the year but it’s the first one I’ve...
  • The Agony Of 1v1 in Rocket League

    So, the new competitive Season has started for Rocket League. In the last season, Season 11, I finally managed to achieve my Diamond Season Rank reward for the first time. The ranks – Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Champion & Grand Champion – are as competitive as ever. In...
  • Next Gen Will Be In A Solid State

    It’s E3! Microsoft have given us the first details on the shape of their next generation offering, coming in late 2020, titled Project Scarlett. Since I did write down some thoughts on the details Sony released, in a Wired article, about the PS5; I thought I should do the...
