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

Wasteland 2 will be released on September 19


Just one month to go for the post-apocalyptic RPG
Aug 19
Just a few weeks ago, we let you know that the much anticipated Wasteland 2 was being delayed a few weeks into September. Now we've gotten word from inXile head Brian Fargo that the game will finally be with us on September 1... read

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

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 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

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 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

PS4 update will let friends join games they don't own


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

Rayman creator Michel Ancel unveils WiLD, a caveman Monster Hunter


It has wolf puppies!
Aug 12
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

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

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

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


Which is still a lot of money

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

Here's a look at what's happening at gamescom


There's a bevy of press conferences happening in Germany
Aug 11
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 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: 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

Point Perfect makes clicking and dragging fun


Get your mouse hand limbered up

There aren't too many games that can promise a "less is more" experience. Most of the time, games are trying to cram more and more features and controls to build a well-rounded experience. Point Perfect is a bit different; t... read

Final version of Wasteland 2 likely delayed into September


The delay is due to manufacturing physical versions

Another day, another delay. It turns out that Wasteland 2 will be likely be missing the August launch date for a release in the first half of September instead. An update on the game's Kickstarter page revealed the delay is d... read
Gods Will Be Watching photo
There are no easy answers
Gods Will Be Watching is a tough game. It puts the player in positions that they'd rather not be in and asks them to make difficult choices. In order to succeed at a mission, you may have to do unthinkable things, betray your morals, and become a monster just to survive a little longer. It's also tough in another sense: the game is bloody hard.  read feature

The Sailor's Dream is the new iOS title from Simogo


The follow-up to Device 6 will be released in late 2014

Swedish developer Simogo has put out two of my favorite iOS titles -- Year Walk and last year's Device 6 -- so I'm really happy to hear that the studio will have a new game out this year. The title is The Sailor's Dream and ... read

There's a Shadowrun: Dragonfall extended director's cut incoming


A new version will arrive in September

After a few weeks of disappointment and controversy regarding certain Kickstarter projects, it's maybe worth reminding ourselves of some of the successful ones. Shadowrun Returns was a really well received game from last yea... read

Aegis Defender is a sweet looking 16-bit tower defense platformer


A Kickstarter is happening to fund this PC and Mac title
Jul 22
A lot of the time, all it takes to make an interesting game is to tweak an existing formula or to just mesh two separate mechanics and concepts together. Case in point, Aegis Defenders, a lovely looking homage to the 16-bit ... read

If someone invents Working In An Office Simulator, then I'm boned

Despite mainly playing all my games on PC, I've never been bitten by the simulation bug. There's no copies of Euro Truck Simulator or Farming Simulator lurking in my Steam library. Still, I'm keen to know who plays these game... read

David Braben hopes Elite: Dangerous will be 'future proof'


I suppose we'll find out in 2024 if he's right

Part of me worries about the three big upcoming space games No Man's Sky, Star Citizen and Elite: Dangerous. I'm fearful they'll consume my life for years to come. Some of that is going to be down to DLC and expanded content... read

The Elder Scrolls Online is also making its Steam debut

The veteran developers will add their input after a Kickstarter stretch goal was met

Personally, I blame the World Cup for distracting me from the news that the team behind the great Fallout fan-film, Nuka Break, launched its Kickstarter to fund the filming of future episodes. Thankfully, film makers Wayside... read

A strange mix of 2D combat and surreal visuals
One thing you can't accuse Chilean developer ACE Team of doing is ploughing the same, well trodden ground as other indie devs. Its debut hit Zeno Clash combined a surrealistic art style with first-person, melee combat, while ... read feature
