Paradigm

Paradigm is a point-'n'-click game starring sloths and mutants


Poor mutated Paradigm is looking for love
Sep 04
While adventure games are doing as well as ever, there's still not too many that hark back to the classic era games like Day of the Tentacle. They used to be really weird! Jacob Janerka's Paradigm seems to emulate that style... read
Pigeon Dating Simulator 2014
Moving to a new school always sucks. You need worry to about grades, pick classes, join a club, try to find new friends, and fit into an existing social hierarchy.  Imagine that but with the added confusion of all your schoolmates being birds. read feature

The Evil Within

Rejoice, Europeans as you get to experience The Evil Within early


EU release date moved up to October 14
Sep 03
As someone living in the UK, it's super frustrating to see notifications pop up on a console or Steam showing my North American friends playing new releases when I usually have to wait a few more days to get my hands on the s... read
Left 4 Dead 2

Left 4 Dead 2 on PC is finally reclassified as R18+ in Australia


Thought this was all meant to be fixed by now
Sep 02
As a former Australian resident, one thing I don't miss there was the lack of an R18+ rating for videogames; despite the fact that the R18+ rating has now been introduced, there have still been cuts to games like South Park: ... read
GOG.com

You've got 4 days to buy 35 games from GOG.com before they're gone


Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Red Faction will be removed from sale
Aug 30
One of the assumptions of buying games digitally is that you assume they'll always be available. That's sadly not the case, but GOG.com is offering discounts on 35 games that it will be removing from its catalog on Septe... read
Elite Dangerous

Watch this crafty space pirate avoid the cops in Elite: Dangerous


It's like Smokey and the Bandit meets Red October. In space!
Aug 26
Remember kids, crime doesn't pay. That is unless you find illicit liquor floating in space and decided to slowly sneak into a space station without the cops seeing you. In which case, it very much pays. YouTube user Isinona ... read
A Fistful of Gun

A Fistful of Gun is a chaotic, top-down, Western shooter


There aren't enough games like that in the world
Aug 21
I appreciate how a publisher like Devolver Digital can put out games as different as Hotline Miami 2 and Hatoful Boyfriend within a few months, as well as this neat top-down shooter A Fistful of Gun. The game looks like ... read

PC games

Anyone surprised to hear 92% of all PC game sales are digital?


Digital sales are up 16% over 2012
Aug 19
To the surprise of probably no one, it looks like the vast majority of PC games that are sold are through digital channels. PC site PCR has been told by analyst DFC Intelligence that in 2013, 92% of games sold were digital, w... read
Humble Bundle

The Humble Jumbo Bundle includes Terraria, Deadlight, and more


There's $210 worth of games on offer
Aug 19
The Humble Bundle is always good value for money but it differs for person to person; is it worth buying a bundle that includes several games you already own? Maybe, but I know I'll be getting the new Humble Jumbo Bundle for ... read

Just one month to go for the post-apocalyptic RPG

Star Citizen

Star Citizen breaks the $50 million mark


All aboard your $350 luxury space craft
Aug 18
Remember that animated .gif of Shigeru Miyamoto and Satoru Iwata holding a DS and proclaiming "It prints money"? You could probably do the same with a picture of Chris Roberts and his pet project Star Citizen. The ambitious ... read
Sacred 3

A Sacred 3 developer apologizes for the game


It is currently sitting at zero positive reviews on Steam
Aug 18
Sacred 3 wasn't a very well received game; I felt it was an average and uninspired hack-'n'-slash game with some terrible attempts at humor. Comments on my review either sided on "hey, it's not too bad in co-op," to "this is ... read
Pro Evolution

Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 declares 'the pitch is ours' in November


CGI Mario Götze is freaking me out
Aug 13
I'll be honest, I haven't played a Pro Evolution Soccer game since the PlayStation 2 days but after the series lagged behind EA's FIFA juggernaut for the last few years, I'm keen to try the series again on a current-gen platf... read
Xbox One

Phil Spencer wants the Xbox One to 'win' this generation's console war


Gotta lot of work to do, then
Aug 13
The idea of the console war -- that the big console makers are locked in this all-or-nothing struggle for hearts and minds -- has gotten sillier as I've gotten older. Still, Xbox head honcho Phil Spencer has told Game Informe... read
Hideo Kojima

Hideo Kojima not keen on remaking his previous games


If he had to choose MGS 1 would be the one
Aug 13
Considering most of the Metal Gear Solid games have been re-released in various fashions over the years, it's surprising that Hideo Kojima isn't too keen on remaking his older games. When asked at Konami's Metal Gear Solid V ... read
Forza Horizon 2

This Forza Horizon 2 trailer uses the word 'social' too much


Social, connected, social, connected
Aug 12
Okay, maybe the snarky headline was a bit mean but the devs behind Forza Horizon 2 are really making sure that you know that the game is social and connected. Aside from those buzzwords, what does that actually mean in terms... read

Share Play feature will roll out in the Autumn
Aug 12
Included in Sony's big fall update will be the ability to join in with your friends' gaming experience, even if you don't own the game itself. Share Play is being described as a "virtual couch" and is online co-op multiplayer... read

It has wolf puppies!

Folk have been wondering what Michel Ancel's new project is and today we got our answer, WiLD. We saw a lovely looking trailer with lush forest, verdant grasslands and a pair of hunters trying to live off the land.  Anc... read
Driveclub

I'm not the first to say this but Driveclub looks gorgeous


Team-based racing sounds really appealing
Aug 12
The last racing game to really hook me was Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit thanks, in no small measure, to the Autolog. Racing against friends was compulsive and really fun, so if Driveclub can do the same but let me race with m... read
Shadow of Mordor

Shadow of Mordor looks good but is it Lord of the Rings?


No hobbits here, sir
Aug 12
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor has gotten a lot of people excited because of its seemingly great combat and interesting reputation system but is it me, or does it just look like a generic dark fantasy game? I'll be honest, m... read
Hellblade

Hellblade is the new game from Ninja Theory


Really, that's it's name?
Aug 12
Yay! A new game from Ninja Theory that's been straddled with one of the most unimaginative names I can remember. Hellblade? Sure, there's not been a game called that already? No release date so far but it will be a console exclusive on PS4.  read
Ethan Carter

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter has me intrigued


Ghosts!
Aug 12
I still don't know a lot about The Vanishing of Ethan Carter apart from some beautiful screenshots and an intriguing name. Thankfully this gamescom trailer from Sony's press conference didn't give a lot away; is it a supernatural murder mystery game? Sure, sign me up for some that. read
Little Big Planet

LittleBigPlanet 3 gets a new gamescom trailer


Sackboy's back
Aug 12
LittleBigPlanet is coming back to a Sony console, with LittleBigPlanet 3 coming to PS4 on November 18. Sackboy is back and he's brought some new friends with him -- Oddsock, Swoop, and Toggle -- which will hopefully mean we'll see unique characters used in co-op games, instead of lots of Sackboys (cute as they are). Check out the new trailer above. read
Origin PCs

Origin is offering 4K-ready PCs for less than $4K


Which is still a lot of money
Aug 11
True story time, kids: On Friday, there was a power outage in my apartment complex and when it was restored a few hours later, my PC refused to boot. I'm hoping it's just the PSU that's blown but my suspicions are that my mot... read

There's a bevy of press conferences happening in Germany

We've already gotten the news from Activision's Call of Duty event earlier today but there's plenty of big things happening at gamescom this week. Here's an idea of when you're going to hear all the news from Microsoft, Sony,... read
Hotline Miami

Hotline Miami is bludgeoning its way onto PS4


Still no word on a release date for the sequel
Aug 11
I know one of the ways I'm going to fill the gap between now and the release of Hotline Miami 2 later this year is.... by playing more Hotline Miami. Especially now as Devolver Digital is releasing the original Hotline Miami... read
Activision

Activision: Pre-orders are declining, Call of Duty 'not immune'


This is despite Destiny's high pre-order numbers
Aug 06
Pre-orders seem like they're part and parcel of videogame culture -- retailers want your money as soon as possible and publishers like to gauge how many people want a particular game. However, Activision Publishing president ... read
Taking the action and RPG out of an ARPG
"I love it." The specter of Diablo looms large over the action-RPG genre; most games borrow heavily from Blizzard's seminal game and those games' success is usually judged on how close they stick to the formula and how well t... read feature
