Wolfenstein II doubles down on its “controversial” Nazis-are-bad stance

Recently, the Wolfenstein Twitter account, as well as publisher Bethesda, copped some flak for posting a trailer for the upcoming Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus which called to “Make America Nazi Free Again”. There were those who arced up over the belief that the developers were politicising the game, which is set in an alternate 1960s where the Nazis won World War II and America liv...[Read More]

Forza Motorsport 7 review: An amazing racing sim, with loot boxes

Reviewed on: Xbox One. Copy supplied by publisher. Racing simulators have never been my forte, as I’ve acknowledged previously. I like my racing games to be crazy bouts of super fast, teeth clenching, explosive fun. The simplest way I can put it is, for me, a great racing game is one where smashing an opponent into a wall is not only acceptable, but encouraged. Forza Motorsport 7 is the comp...[Read More]

Check out some new Jurassic World Evolution in-game footage

Jurassic World Evolution was easily the most interesting thing announced in Xbox’s Gamescom coverage a couple month’s back. No one had any idea the game by Frontier Developments was in the works, but it got everyone excited because the idea of a modern dinosaur park creation simulator is one only the most Jeff Goldblum-ey of people wouldn’t be in favour of. Now a new trailer for ...[Read More]

Observer review: Blade stumbler…

Reviewed on: PC. Copy supplied by publisher. There are few things more disappointing than a game that features some great ideas but ultimately fails to live up to any of them. Like having a combination of ice cream and jelly for dessert. I love me some ice cream, and jelly too is a wonderful concoction of deliciousness and wobble, but put them together in a bowl and all you have is a slimy, squidg...[Read More]

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice review: Be wary of the voices in your head…

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Developed with the aid of neuroscientists and experts in the field of mental health, it’s fair to say Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice isn’t your typical game. Going into it, I had purposely avoided a lot of the run up to the release, as I found the premise very exciting, and wanted to be as fresh as I could to the experience. A...[Read More]

Tacoma Review – Like Prey without guns

Reviewed on: Xbox One I had almost no idea what Tacoma was about prior to playing it. I’d watched the trailers and read a little bit about it but only garnered that it’s a walking-simulator style game set in space, and that it’s developed by the same team that created Gone Home, Fullbright Company. It’s certainly reminiscent of Gone Home, only set on a space station and with more dialogue. A lot m...[Read More]

Titanfall 2 gets its best free DLC and its worst microtransactions

This past week, Titanfall 2 dropped its latest free content update in the form of ‘Frontier Shield,’ adding two new maps, camos, balance changes, and best of all, the co-op gametype, Frontier Defense. The first new map is ‘Township’, an urban style arena for the ‘Live Fire’ gametype. I had my doubts about this map, due to all the potential camping spots, but all reports say that it’s one of the be...[Read More]

Modern Warfare Remastered is getting a super expensive standalone release tomorrow

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is officially getting a standalone release following an a recent announcement from Activision. In a decision that is sure to bring some relief to the small group of people who held out on purchasing the Legacy or Legacy Pro editions of last year’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, the rerelease of Modern Warfare will arrive on PS4 both digitally and in r...[Read More]

Overwatch loot boxes are about to get less terrible

Look, I love Overwatch. I mean, it was my 2016 Game of the Year, which for a story-less, multiplayer only game is one heck of an achievement. What can I say, I had a great year hooking pesky Tracers and raining justice from elevated positions. But despite Overwatch’s many great elements, its gambling-esque, majorly stacked against you loot box system is the worst. In order to unlock the cosm...[Read More]

Perception review: Lost in the dark

Reviewed on: PC. Copy supplied by publisher. “Run-n-hide” horror games are nothing new, nor are they in short supply these days. The success of indie games such as Amnesia: The Dark Descent and the Outlast franchise showed that powerlessness against a formidable foe can certainly get the heart pumping, and thus a genre was born. But instead of being just another face in the spooky crow...[Read More]

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War calls for aid, and October 2017 will answer

Another day, another major video game release delayed. Yes, Middle-Earth: Shadow of War has been delayed from its August release date to October 10, 2017 according to a post by developer Monolith’s community manager Monolith_Andy. The reason for the delay is the usual “we want to make sure we deliver the best possible experience” affair. “Middle-earth: Shadow of War expands...[Read More]

Strafe review: Strafe outta Compton

Reviewed on: PC. Copy supplied by publisher. Capturing the vibe of classic video games while implementing the benefits of modern technology is a tricky thing to pull off, with last year’s DOOM being a rare exception. But where id Software’s sequel was a modern looking shooter with classic influences, Strafe by Pixel Titans strives to achieve the opposite: to bring that retro FPS feel k...[Read More]
