Why we should celebrate extra options in games

Peter Glagowski's personal picks for Game of the Year 2016

2016 wasn’t the best year for gaming, at least in my opinion. We definitely saw some solid titles come out (along with the end of a decade-long wait for two games!), but a lot of the major releases this year were retreads of tired the...

The Last Guardian is selling decently in the UK

The wait was excruciating, but it seems to have paid off for Sony's Japan Studio. The Last Guardian has sold better than both Ico and Shadow of the Colossus did on launch in the UK, but its performance hasn't placed it at number one. Losing...

Ubisoft is patching the genitalia out of Watch Dogs 2

I have to say, it's stories like this that make me really appreciate writing for a video games blog. Not because of the actual news itself, but because I finally have an outlet where it's not only appropriate, but somehow part of the job, t...

Review: Watch Dogs 2

Since releasing in 2014, Ubisoft's Watch Dogs has meant something different to almost everyone who played it. Though the open-world hack-a-thon is often critiqued for lacking personality and the graphical downgrade debacle, it sti...
