Stop comparing The Division and Destiny

-Aaron Birch Okay, some credentials. I’ve been playing Destiny since the Beta. In that time I’ve done pretty much everything there is to do, and earned everything there is to earn. I’ve beaten all the strikes, raids and challenge modes, have three fully levelled characters, have done my time in the Crucible, and have all the exotics. I’ve put a stupid amount of time into th...[Read More]

A Playstation 4K might be launching this year

-James Orr According to The Know the rumoured PlayStation 4K (also known as the PlayStation 4.5) reported by Kotaku, The Wall Street Journal and Eurogamer, is not only real but will be launching this year. The PS4K will run games and other media at, you guessed it, a 4K (3840 X 2160 pixels) output, which is essentially four times larger than the current console standard of 1080p (1920 X 1080). The...[Read More]

Those indie games you might have missed: Dropsy

-Simon Vallenet This week I’d like to introduce you to a very particular game that has a special place in my collection. Developed by Jay Tholen and A Jolly Corpse, Dropsy is a point’n click ‘hugventure’ (more on that later) that was kickstarted in October 2013 and launched on Steam in September 2015. Once again, forget the blockbusters doped with HD graphics and go back to the golden era of retro...[Read More]

Those indie games you might have missed: Circa Infinity

– Simon Vallenet Developed by one man team Kenny Sun, Circa Infinity is based on a prototype he made for the 2014 Ludum Dare. Called Core, the mini game wasn’t extraordinary but the concept and the idea were strong enough for it to be turned into a more evolved game. A year later, Circa Infinity was released on Steam. Once again, it’s the type of bold looking indie game that uses pixel art i...[Read More]

Hitman Review: 47 ways to die

-Aaron Birch Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. As a fan of the Hitman series, one who’s played every entry so far, including the first, PC-only title, I’ve seen IO Interactive’s flagship series evolve over the years in ways both good, and bad. What started out life as an unapologetically challenging and unique game quickly established a formula of stealthy k...[Read More]

Game Archive: Yes you too can relive the adventure of getting dysentery

– Karolina Firman Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiago, The Oregon Trail, and Castle of Dr Brain. What do these games have in common besides a ton of nostalgia, (admittedly) not the best graphics and cheesy background music? Well I’ll tell you, they’re all part of a game archive saved by the same people who make the Wayback Machine, which is a digital archive of old web pages. This organisation...[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]

Dying Light: The Following Enhanced Edition Review: The Driving Dead

-Aaron Birch Beginning life as a large piece of DLC for the vanilla Dying Light, The Following soon grew out of its initial scope, and developer Techland quickly re-purposed the project as a full-fledged expansion. This is no paltry bit of wasteful DLC you’ll complete in under an hour (Arkham Knight, I’m looking at you!), this is a full campaign that has plenty to offer. The fact that ...[Read More]

Bungie alters the course of Destiny’s fate

-James Orr For fans disappointed with the current Valentine’s event in Destiny (and there are many) there is good news! In a recent Bungie news update, community manager ‘DeeJ’ announced that the next and significantly larger update is coming in the American spring (our autumn). The content features: “a significant Light increase, a bunch of new gear to earn and equip, and new challenges for...[Read More]

Does 10 go into One? Xbox One’s compatibility with Windows

– James Orr I recently upgraded my PC to Windows 10, with one of the reasons being its compatibility with the Xbox One. Does Windows 10 offer anything new or worthwhile in regards to console gaming? The short answer: yes, but not a whole lot. Windows 10 comes with the Xbox App installed and ready to launch. The app is everything you’d expect, functioning as a cross-between the Xbox website a...[Read More]

Fast Racing Neo review

– Stefan Bradley Reviewed on: Wii U Cue the comparisons to Nintendo’s F-Zero franchise, as well as Sony’s WipEout. Like those two series, Fast Racing Neo is all about futuristic vehicles racing at extreme speeds to a soundtrack fusing rock and electronic music. F-Zero hasn’t seen a new game since F-Zero Climax on the GBA, but most of us fondly remember F-Zero GX as the peak...[Read More]
