Is there a link between feeling sexy and violence in games?

– Marz Raul Playing video games carries all sorts of stereotypes and pre-conceptions, the most common being gamers are nerdy, socially awkward and overwhelmingly male. However research carried out by UNSW scientists Michael Kasumovic and Tom Denson indicates this may not necessarily be the case; and perhaps, more interestingly, tackles the awkward questions around gamers and their sex drives...[Read More]

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.

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

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.

– Charlie Braithwaite Whilst most of the gaming world sees Batman: Arkham Knight  as a insanely immersive batman/tedious-tank-driving simulator, one Steam user sees it in an entirely unique way. Well done Waifu Hunter, I just hope you recover from the mind-bending levels of fear toxin that must be circulating through your veins right now.

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
