Review: Worms Battlegrounds

Coming up on the 20th anniversary of the Worms series, yet another Worms game is upon us. This is technically the first current-gen title though, worming its way onto the Xbox One and PS4. As you can imagine so...

Worms Battlegrounds to bring annelid anarchy to PS4 and Xbox One on June 3

Since what feels like the dawn of time (or at least shortly after Scorched Earth existed), Worms has been a mainstay of videogames in general. With its odd humor and ridiculous arsenal, it has graced over 25 platforms with i...

Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons free for PS Plus this week photo
Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons free for PS Plus this week
by Jordan Devore

Out of all the games I feel bad about missing last year, Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons has got to rank among the top of the list. It shouldn't take this much convincing to get me to play something I'm fairly sure I will enjoy, but that's the way of the world. Now I'll have my chance: the game joins the Instant Game Collection for PlayStation Plus members this week.

Look for Brothers as well as Worms: Battle Islands for PSP / PS Vita, another free game for subscribers, on PlayStation Network once the store update goes live tomorrow. Sorry, Worms, but I feel a whole lot less awful about not playing you.

Review: Worms Clan Wars photo
Review: Worms Clan Wars
by Fraser Brown

I think that Team 17 needs some help. Some dastardly villain has clearly locked the developer up and abandoned them, because less than a year after releasing the excellent Worms Revolution, the invertebrate-obsessed studio has only gone and made Worms Clan Wars, which is not only a proper, fully fledged continuation of the venerable series, but a high point for the franchise.

Perhaps the very worms they so admire have risen up and forced them into eternal servitude, and if this is the case, we should all get out our nicest stationary and write a strongly worded letter to these slithering, slimy dictators and demand that they give Team 17 a break. It would be well deserved, too, as they've already succeeded in the challenge of improving on a formula that was arguably perfected over a decade ago.

New releases: Monkey around in Donkey Kong 3D photo
New releases: Monkey around in Donkey Kong 3D
by Fraser Brown

For the love of god, somebody get me a 3DS. I made the unfortunate mistake of backing the wrong Nintendo console, grabbing a Wii U late last year, when I should have put my eggs in the portable basket. Now I'm not able to play the fantastic Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, and I feel absolutely terrible. 

Along with Donkey Kong, a few other choice morsels launch this week. Resident Evil Revelations makes the move from the 3DS to home consoles; The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing sees the eponymous hero hunt monsters in a gothic-noir fantasy universe; Call of Juarez goes back to its western roots in Gunslinger; and the Wii U gets a bunch of ports. Lucky me. 

Anything making you short of breath this week?

Review: Worms Revolution photo
Review: Worms Revolution
by Fraser Brown

One cannot help but wonder, after so many years of senseless violence and bloodshed, what is it that makes worms so murderous? I guess that if you lived in the dirt, looked a bit gross, and were so often at the mercy of a trowel or a spade, you'd probably be a bit angry too. 

The endless cycle of wormicide continues in Worms Revolution -- a misnomer if ever I've heard one. Yes, it's pretty much still the same old Worms, but in the best way possible. Honestly, I'm glad. We don't really need another Worms 3D.

Worms Revolution has warring worms and exploding grannies

Preview: Worms Revolution for Johnny No Mates

Since the mid-'90s, I've been unable to look at the common garden worm without wondering "How many kills does it have?" or "Does it have a shotgun?" I blame Team17 for this entirely; their military-minded, wriggly warriors make these animals seem ferocious.

Unfortunately, my love of these warmongering creatures has diminished over the years. The awkward switch to 3D left nothing but disappointment in its wake, and my interest has yet to be recaptured by the later iterations. My current wormless existence is about to get shook up, however, as original Worms creator Andy Davidson and Team17 have been hard at work making the latest title, Worms Revolution, forward-looking yet still able to inspire a great deal of nostalgia. 

In June, Casey got to take on Davidson himself at a round in Revolution, so I thought I'd check out the title's single-player offerings; there's quite a bit.

Drown some worms in Worms Revolution

Worms has always brought out the worst in me. I become a vicious, hateful, overly-competitive, incredibly angry arsehole. I love it. This has followed me through the entire series, even the ones that weren't particularly goo...
