Fallout 4 has the third biggest UK launch of the year

You might not have noticed, but Fallout 4 released last week. I know, I know, it was kind of snuck out and didn’t get much fanfare, so I totally won’t blame you if you somehow managed to miss it. However, you might be interested...

Assassin's Creed Syndicate had the worst UK launch in series history

In case you somehow didn’t notice, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate launched last week. Setting the series predominantly in the UK for the first time (we had a little bit in the opening to AC3), plus being set in the much-loved Victor...

The Elder Scrolls Online tops the UK retail charts

Well, this is a surprise. The Elder Scrolls Online is currently at the top of UK retail charts, managing to sell over 100,000 copies in its first week. I really like TESO, but it is a game that released over a year ago to middling reviews o...

Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon tops PSN charts in US, UK

Like Sergeant Rex Power Colt in a helicopter, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon soared above the rest of the competition on PlayStation Network last month, raining down neon-tinted death upon its enemies from both sides of the Atlantic. Yep. The numb...

Fuse debuts in the UK charts at number 37

Whilst many didn't expect it to set the charts alight, it can't be of any comfort to Insomniac Games to know that Fuse entered the UK videogame charts at number 37. Our own Jim Sterling said in his review the game was "lazy" and "victim of ...

Ni no Kuni is #1 in the UK, sold out in many shops

I guess a lot of grown-up "mature" gamers, who complained that Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch was too "kiddy," were blowing smoke out their asses and bought the Level-5 RPG anyway. According to GfK Chart-Track's UK Top 40, Ni no Kuni ...

UK Charts: Brink smashes into number one

Brink has made it to number one in the UK Charts. You'd have hoped so, since it was developed in Bromley. I used to live in Bromley, opposite a kebab shop, in an apartment frequently visited by a guy who'd drink a pint of his own piss and d...

UK Charts: Dead Space 2 keeps on ticking

Dead Space 2 is enjoying its second consecutive week at the top of the UK Chart, as the sequel sells considerably better than its original, which is awesome. It seems the market has been yet to reward Visceral Games with a smash hit, despit...

UK Charts: Dead Space 2 plasma cuts LBP2 down to size

Visceral's highly excellent Dead Space 2 has made a splash in the United Kingdom, debuting at number one. It shunts LittleBigPlanet 2 down to the second place, which is no bad place to be. In fact, PS3 exclusives don't typically stay near t...

UK Charts: LittleBigPlanet 2 is bigger than little

It appears that LittleBigPlanet 2 is enjoying a very nice launch, debuting this week at number one. The original LittleBigPlanet did not manage to achieve this, if memory serves, so that's a nice little victory for a nice little game! Sackb...

UK Charts: Black Ops is Christmas Number One

UK Charts: Black Ops retakes the gold

UK Charts: Black Ops on top ... as if it wouldn't be
