XCOM 2 is coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4

XCOM 2, arguably one of the greatest strategy games of all time (and my current GOTY pick), has been announced for a console release on September 6. It won’t be long before the torment of missing shots and seeing carefully laid plans shred to pieces can be hated enjoyed by console gamers. Initially it appeared that 2K’s brutal sci-fi strategy title would remain a PC only game, somewhat drive...[Read More]

FIFA 17 thinks it’s an action blockbuster in reveal trailer

As is commonplace this close to E3, trailers teasing longer trailers are starting to crop up on YouTube, and today EA released one for FIFA 17. Now, I don’t know if some wires got crossed when they were planning this teaser, but I think someone forgot to tell whomever it concerns that FIFA isn’t a Hollywood blockbuster.

Kojima Productions reveals the face of mascot LUDENS in new image

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve never been more curious about the details surrounding a character that may not be anything more than a company logo.

New Horizon Zero Dawn trailer reveals March 2017 release date

For me, it took the little flyer included in copies of Uncharted 4 last month ...[Read More]

Arachnophobia VR game comes to Steam, looks like pure nightmare fuel

Hello, my name is Tom and I’m an arachnophobe. I am a firm believer that spiders are the worst and nothing you can say will convince me otherwise. “But Tom, the scary looking huntsman spiders can’t hurt you, in fact they kill other, worse insects and spiders around your home!” Don’t care. If they want to do that, they can do that outside. My house has one rule and one...[Read More]

The best E3 moments are the ones we aren’t expecting

E3 2016 is right around the corner, so pretty soon everyone’s newsfeeds will be blasted with so many stories of game reveals, cinematic trailers and awkward PR presentations.

Although the game is relatively easy to pick up and play, there are a lot of nuanced aspects to it that impact how a match unfolds and whether your side ultimately w...[Read More]
