Missingo is totally in Pokémon Red and Blue on 3DS

  I can remember clearly when news hit the playground back in the late 90s that a mysterious Pokémon could be found in Red and Blue. This holy grail of confusion could only be found under special circumstances, and the end result was more frightening than it was enjoyable. I am of course talking about Missingo, which you probably already knew unless you somehow completely avoided reading the ...[Read More]

The Culling alpha: Some time with a game where you shank strangers

  If I were to tell you that there’s a hyped early access game coming to Steam soon, which genre do you think that game would fall under? If you answered survival, congratulations! Very soon you’ll be able to scavenge for supplies and murder players in yet another early access survival game on Steam, however this one is probably worth paying attention to. The Culling, developed by...[Read More]

Stephen Curry is so good in real life he has to be a cheat character in NBA 2k16

  I want to preface this piece of news by saying I have little to no knowledge of sports, especially basketball. And I don’t say that to pre-empt some kind of ignorance on my part, more that this piece of news regarding NBA 2k16 and Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry so hilarious that even a scrawny physical activity shun-er like me is interested. The specifics of the situa...[Read More]

The Flame in the Flood review: A boar broke both my legs

Reviewed on: PC, also available for Xbox One. A calming harmonica plays folk music as I stroll around an island with my dog. This is the first haven I’ve discovered in the flooded ruins of America, I’m excited and optimistic to find what goodies it has to offer. Is that a pig I see? How delightful! Oh, wait… is it charging at me? It’s totally charging at me. Okay well there...[Read More]

Uncharted 4 story trailer looks unbelievably good

  When it comes to that headline, I mean that quite literally. The new Uncharted 4 story trailer (that actually doesn’t contain a whole lot of story details) looks so good I can’t quite believe it. I mean, look at it, just look: I mean sure, maybe some of the wider landscape shots look a little super imposed, but check the graphical detail in the characters. The way the light refl...[Read More]

Survival mode in Fallout 4 sounds pretty rad

  For those of you who found strolling through an atomic wasteland filled with mutants and raiders too easy, there will be a brutally hard mode for Fallout 4 coming soon. Known as survival mode, this upcoming difficulty has previously remained a mystery, up until a Redditor known as rayQuGR data mined the game and figured it all out. Well done internet! The information uncovered was also conf...[Read More]

The Walking Dead: Michonne Episode 1: old dog, some new tricks

Reviewed on: PC It’s no secret I’m a fan of Telltale Games’ Walking Dead series. It’s dark, intense, makes you anxiously squirm with some of the decisions it throws at you and will deliver a swift gut-punch to your emotions at a moments notice. Now while many of us are anticipating The Walking Dead Season 3, given Season 2 left us in a very interesting situation, Michonne i...[Read More]

Reviewed on: Xbox One. Copy supplied by publisher. Crouching in a dense Mesolithic treeline you slowly creep towards your enemy. They’ve eaten members of your tribe and attacked your village, this attack is going to be personal.  You look over your  weaponry to see which is best to take them down, at your disposal you have spears, clubs, a bow and a motherfucking sabre tooth tiger that you s...[Read More]

The characters Smash Bros would be crazy NOT to include

-Stefan Bradley Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U has officially ended with the final DLC of Corrin and Bayonetta launching. To celebrate the end of new Smash Bros. characters as we know it, I just wanted to spit-ball some ideas for a additions to the next iteration’s roster. I know Street Fighter V is all the rage at the moment, but it doesn’t even include Blanka so maybe it could l...[Read More]

There’s a Stormtrooper mod for XCOM 2 and it’s super appropriate

  XCOM 2 is an unforgiving game, and I loved the hell out of it. It doesn’t go easy on you, instead it relies on cold, hard statistical likelihoods to decide your chances of success. Your soldiers will more often than not miss the perfect shot you were holding out for, even when the statistics were in your favour. It boarders on the ridiculous, because these people are supposedly traine...[Read More]
