Fallout 4 is about to get prettier, and also make your computer weep

Fallout 4 is a pretty darn good looking game. I mean, look how many times my fellow editor Charlie and I posted our collections of screenshots from our time exploring the Boston wasteland. Bethesda have today announced that next week they’re releasing an High-Resolution Texture Pack for Fallout 4 on PC, as well as a PS4 Pro update, that is about to make the game a whole lot prettier, so I sa...[Read More]

Gee, “1-2-Swift” sure looks like another game I know…

If you are a huge Nintendo fan who also happened to be perusing Steam today and spotted a game called 1-2-Swift on the new release list, you could be forgiven for thinking the upcoming Nintendo Switch exclusive 1-2 Switch had both come out a full month early and also been ported over to PC. Actually no, I take that back. I won’t forgive you for that because that idea is completely ridiculous...[Read More]

Guys, Mass Effect: Andromeda has a new trailer and it’s pretty rad

Mass Effect: Andromeda, Bioware’s next instalment in their gigantic space opera franchise, is just around the corner, due for release on March 23 (March 21 in the US). That less than two month wait is still going to feel like a long time for those excited to jump back into the series’ sprawling, deep sci-fi universe, so as a nice gift (or perhaps a cruel exacerbation of the wait time),...[Read More]

Square Enix partner with Marvel and announce The Avengers Project

Today it was announced that the beloved comic book company will be teaming up with Square Enix for future video game projects, the first having a working title of The Avengers Project.

Prey reboot is launching in May

After the 10 year long story that was the development and sad cancellation of Prey 2, the reboot by Arkane Studios finally has a release date. The sci-fi shooter in which morphing into a coffee mug is a totally possible method of escaping death is launching for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC May 5 2017. There’s also a new trailer, showing off some pretty nuts gunplay and more of the creepy s...[Read More]

Year of the Rooster comes to Overwatch with plenty of new skins

So we’re pretty used to seasonal Overwatch skins now right? You know, those ultra rare legendary skins that are timed exclusives? Every time they come around it feels like a sneaky play to get us to buy more loot boxes, but on the other hand, the costumes are fucking dope, so it’s a tough balancing act. The latest seasonal even is celebrating Year of the Rooster, introducing new costum...[Read More]

Halo Wars 2 Blitz Beta impressions

I spent some time playing the Halo Wars 2 Blitz Beta this weekend. The new Blitz gamemode is billed as “a fast, card-based strategic experience.” There’s no base construction, and units are summoned from cards randomly drawn from your deck; an interesting and unique concept for RTS games, but one that has received mixed reactions from the community. Blitz is a very action-oriented gamemode. Battle...[Read More]

Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s differences on Switch compared to Wii U

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a title that some people bought their Wii U’s specifically to play, even when their was no firm release date or official title. So when it was announced for the Nintendo Switch, then referred to as the NX, you could sense the wave of crushing disappointment from fans, like a thousand voices cried out in terror before suddenly taking their outrage to Twi...[Read More]

Questions we can answer on the Nintendo Switch

On the weekend we were fortunate enough to get our hands on the Nintendo Switch (you may have already read about how filthy it was). It was a pretty great evening, we spent three hours up close and personal with Nintendo’s new system, some new games, and the Joy-Con controllers. Whether you’re considering a preorder or just curious, I’m sure you have some questions about the syst...[Read More]

1-2 Switch is surprisingly fun, but also a little filthy…

I stared coldly into Charlie’s eyes, determined to furiously stroke the flaccid udder of an imaginary cow faster than he possibly could. “I am going to milk you dry,” he quips, with a twinkle of madness in his eye. Yes, that was a real exchange that really happened, with absolutely no embellishment. Welcome to the future of Nintendo… Charlie and I were exchanging these filt...[Read More]

The Nintendo Switch comes out March 3rd, here’s what you need to know

So yesterday you probably saw the internet went silly with Nintendo Switch articles. The unreasonably long hashtag #nintendoswitchpresentation took Twitter by storm, as Nintendo announced the release date, price, features and games for their upcoming console, the Switch. Instead of bombarding your feed with articles, we thought we’d compile some of the key information into one neat package f...[Read More]

Watch the Nintendo Switch announcement here

Today’s the day folks, today we find out more info about this little home/portable console hybrid that Nintendo ceremoniously revealed this past October. (Although if you ask me, you should watch Jim Sterling’s rundown of the thing instead, it was much more entertaining). Yes, it’s Nintendo Switch Presentation day. Nintendo have previously said today’s announcement would de...[Read More]
