Pokémon GO from the perspective of someone who hates Pokémon 

All right, all right, I guess I don’t hate Pokémon, it’s just something I never really got into as a kid. I don’t know, the show just didn’t really do it for me and neither did the games, although to be fair I never owned a GameBoy so I didn’t really give them much of a chance outside of playing them at friends’ houses. Still, while I find the little critters li...[Read More]

Red Dead Redemption will be backwards compatible on Xbox One, for reals this time

Red Dead Redemption, the super popular Rockstar game that the “won’t someone think of the children” scaremongers don’t seem to know about, is coming to Xbox One via backwards compatibility this weekend.

DOOM becomes even more old-school with centre-framed gun pose

Post the release of Overwatch and its subsequent domination of the gaming space, you might be forgiven for forgetting about DOOM. And that would be a shame, because despite a fun yet shallow multiplayer mode, the single player campaign was fantastic. You can read all about it in our review that is still deemed “too abusive” for Facebook, because those clowns wouldn’t know how to ...[Read More]

Overwatch competitive mode is here, but it’s flawed for solo players

PC players have been treated to a new mode in Overwatch this week, a mode that introduces them to ranked competitive play. To start a competitive season players must complete ten placement matches that allocates them a number between 1-100 based on how well they do. Fear not if you receive a relatively low number, as this seems to be one of the issues the mode has at the moment, and an issue that ...[Read More]
