Review: Horizon Zero Dawn

Horizon Zero Dawn came out of nothingness and delighted thousands. Born on a lark as the "most risky" concept from a Guerilla Games pitch session, the aesthetic of meshing tribal warfare with high-tech creatures is intriguing all on its own...   read

The next Watch Dogs 2 DLC tackles self-driving cars and whose lives they should prioritize

Have you ever taken one of those psychopath morality tests? Here's a good one. It tasks you with making callous and calculated decisions about who should die in a car accident. Like, is a pregnant woman's life more valuable than a criminal...   read

It's 2017 and Grand Theft Auto V is somehow still above the $20 price tag for the PC digital copy. Unlike other triple-A titles that have long since descended into the $5 bargain bin price during seasonal sales, GTA V chugs on -- partly due...   read

Michel Ancel's animal adventure Wild is still happening

It's been quiet enough on the Wild front that I was starting to fear for the game (especially as we've been far more focused on Beyond Good & Evil 2 as of late), but it seems to be coming along nicely. On Instagram, designer Michel Ance...   read

20 minutes with Breath of the Wild left me wanting more

I didn't have to get up at 6:00am on a Saturday morning to go out in the freezing cold, sit on a train for two hours and spend 2000 yen each way to get my hands on the Nintendo Switch. But I did. I wanted to see what Nintendo's new toy had ...   read

Review: Gravity Rush 2

Back in 2012 I was whisked away to the land of Hekseville with Kat and Raven, and fell in love with a brand new low-key property from Sony. Gravity Rush was everything I wanted an open world action game to be, and for several years, nothing...   read

The Ghost Recon Wildlands beta should be good for some silly fun

Ubisoft has opened signups for the Ghost Recon Wildlands closed beta, which is something I'd like to try out despite not really feeling the co-op squad shooter's super-serious tone or its disappointingly standard-feeling gunplay. The destr...   read

Microsoft says the wait for Crackdown 3 will be a year at most

It may seem like a while since we've last heard about Crackdown 3. That's because Microsoft has been in no great rush to offer more details about the open-world destructathon that it initially revealed at E3 2014. It sort of just faded to t...   read
