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

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 platform. PES 2015 w...   read

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

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 Informer he wants to w...   read

Hideo Kojima not keen on remaking his previous games

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 event today in ...   read

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

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 of how the gam...   read

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

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 my friends, then...   read

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

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, my Middle-earth ...   read

Hellblade is the new game from Ninja Theory

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

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 my...   read

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

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 motherboard is fri...   read

Hotline Miami is bludgeoning its way onto PS4

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 on PS4; while ...   read

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

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 and CEO Eric Hi...   read

Review: Sacred 3

"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 they execute on ...   read

Review: Gods Will Be Watching

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 be...   read

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

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 era consoles th...   read
