Horizon Zero Dawn to be an open world RPG, says Guerrilla Games

– Tom Heath Horizon Zero Dawn made quite the impression during Sony’s E3 presentation last month, being a new IP from long time Playstation developer Guerrilla Games. Their first non-Killzone game in a long time, the pre-historic themed, post apocalyptic, robot dinosaur hunting game looks like quite a shift from their comfort zone. Few details were given as to the specifics of the game...[Read More]

What I want from The Last of Us 2

– Tom Heath It is no secret to anyone who knows me that I consider Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us to be a masterpiece of interactive storytelling. It was one of the first video games I ever publicly reviewed. Whenever I am asked what I think the best game of the past decade is, The Last of Us is one of the first games I consider. But a potential sequel to the game has been offhandedly me...[Read More]

Uncharted 4’s extended gameplay trailer released, ups it to 11

– Tom Heath Despite a slight technical hitch during its E3 presentation this year, a hitch that some might argue actually made the game look better given it proved someone was actually PLAYING the demo, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was a highlight of the Sony conference. It featured ridiculous graphics (that hopefully make it to the retail version, we’ve been burned before),  the s...[Read More]

Allison Road, spiritual successor for P.T.: pants will be shat

– Tom Heath I, like many others, was devastated earlier this year when the Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro directed horror game Silent Hills was cancelled, especially after playing its phenomenal playable teaser, P.T., on PS4. The mind bending horror experience set in a suburban household was unlike anything I had ever experienced, featuring no “game” like features such as ob...[Read More]

Batman: Arkham Knight review

– Tom Heath I’m Batman… This thought ran through my mind as I stood perched atop a fire escape railing, the cold Gotham rain pelting my billowing cape, watching a group of thugs exchanging banter. They had no idea I was there; they had no idea they were prey. I scanned the group. Two thugs held assault rifles, one was big and muscular, the last held a club. Using my distruptor ri...[Read More]

Mortal Kombat X Predator footage leaks: spoilers, it’s gross

– Tom Heath Footage has leaked to YouTube featuring the intro, outro, brutalities and fatalities of the upcoming Mortal Kombat X Predator DLC.

Grand Theft Arthur: Your day has just been made

– Tom Heath One of the coolest features of Grand Theft Auto V for PC is that it has a film making function, and YouTubers have been making some great short films. This week, user Merfish posted a shot-for-shot remake of the intro sequence to 90s cartoon Arthur. It’s called “Grand Theft Arthur” and yes, it is amazing. Merfish took some creative liberties with a few moments, ...[Read More]

Fallout 4 successfully bought with bottle caps

– Tom Heath Last week, an Imgur gallery was posted on Reddit of user GatorMacheteJr saying he had just shipped their “life savings” of bottle caps to Bethesda Softworks in an attempt to purchase Fallout 4. Bottle caps are the currency in the Fallout series, and GatorMacheteJr had spent seven years amassing the 2,240 caps he shipped. He also included a witty note referring to preo...[Read More]

PC Arkham Knight issues drive publisher to drastic measures

– Tom Heath Following the onslaught of user complaints yesterday regarding the PC Arkham Knight issues, the game’s publisher has suspended digital sales of the game until the situation is resolved.

Arkham Knight’s PC launch plagued with issues

– Tom Heath Stop me if you’ve heard this one: A hotly anticipated game has a simultaneous release across console platforms and PC, graphics card manufacturers advertise the benefits the PC version will have, early reviews come out praising the game (reviewed on consoles), but the PC edition launches as a broken mess. …you didn’t stop me. Have you seriously not heard that on...[Read More]
