In Memoriam: XCOM Enemy Unknown

  With the release of XCOM 2 looming ever closer, it being tomorrow and all, all the traumatic memories I have from its predecessor XCOM: Enemy Unknown have been coming back to mind. As the subject of one of our “In Memorium” posts, Enemy Unknown is very unique thanks to its unpredictable strategy gameplay, permanent team member deaths and the ability to name and characterise your...[Read More]

Metal Gear Solid V wants to achieve world peace

  If I can draw your attention away from the beautiful apocalypse that is Fallout 4, or bring you forward in time from the galaxy far, far away, I’d like to remind you of a little game that came out not three months ago: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. You may have heard of it, as I do tend to bang on about it. And I mean really bang on about it. A LOT. And three months on, MGSV i...[Read More]

Telltale’s Game of Thrones review – oh god, my feels…

  With its season finale dropping last week, and the physical retail release arriving yesterday, Telltale’s Game of Thrones has come to a close. This series has been an interesting experiment for Telltale Games as it is set during the events of an ongoing property, HBO’s Game of Thrones television series, rather than prior to the original source material ala The Wolf Among Us; fol...[Read More]

The Battlefield kills I pull off when no one is watching

  I find I am pretty rubbish at Battlefield 4. OK, maybe not completely rubbish, but despite some 18 months of regular sessions with my squad mates/real ACTUAL friends Adam, Jorge and Lawton, I still often find myself exclaiming that I fired a zillion shots at someone only for them to kill me in a single one. I know the game isn’t broken and doesn’t give enemies an advantage, my a...[Read More]

Believe the hype: Halo’s greatest ads and trailers

-James Orr Halo has been a monumental part of gaming for almost 15 years now, and a monumental franchise needs monumental marketing. Playing host to some of the greatest and most innovative marketing campaigns and trailers of all time, Microsoft, Bungie and 343 Industries have consistently built the hype leading up to the release of each one of their major releases.

This Metal Gear Solid V FOB infiltrator is one cool customer

-Tom Heath Now that the game has been out for some six weeks, and I just completed the campaign the other day, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will soon start sneaking its way out of the gaming news cycle. There may come a day when the appeal of the game fails but, to paraphrase a certain king of Gondor, it is not this day. This day we have amazing YouTube clips. YouTube user LawRyuzaki uploa...[Read More]

Metal Gear Solid V diary: Day 4, let’s talk the ending

-Tom Heath So I did it, I finally finished Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. It took me some 60 hours, but I finally got through the campaign and have seen the connecting pieces of the Metal Gear saga. Nearly 20 years of playing the series and I finally know the whole story! Except that’s a lie, I really don’t, because good lord does Phantom Pain’s ending throw a spanner into...[Read More]

Metal Gear Online first impressions – beware the puppy trap…

-Tom Heath You may or may not realise that there was a second major online game launch this week. The first was the Star Wars Battlefront beta and everyone has been talking about it, myself included. But the second certainly deserves recognition, it being the multiplayer component of a game I have been very, VERY much enjoying. I am, of course, referring to Metal Gear Online. My experience with Me...[Read More]

Destiny: The Taken King review: Bungie’s fateful return

-James Orr Destiny: The Taken King is a massive DLC that has taken Destiny to a new level. When I started playing I was taken aback by just how much new content there was, and it has taken me a lot longer to play through the majority of the content than I thought it take. It takes the cake and is fit for a king. Okay, now I’ve gotten that out of my system we can continue. From the very start...[Read More]

Old-gen Black Ops III won’t have a campaign mode

-Tom Heath Hi there, my name is Tom and I’m one of those weirdos whose favourite part of Call of Duty games is the single player campaign. And if there are any of you out there who are like me but have yet to upgrade your consoles to the current generation then I have some bad news for you: Call of Duty: Black Ops III will not feature the single player campaign on PS3 and Xbox 360 due to tec...[Read More]
