Let’s get the important bit out of the way first. Yes the title is a desperate and terrible pun, and no, it doesn’t tell people what the piece is about. I like writing...

Resident Evil 2 Remake: hands-on preview

Sep 23, 2018

It’s been twenty years since I last played Resident Evil 2. Twenty years since I sold my Sega Saturn and games to fund the purchase of a PlayStation and a copy of RE2. A desperate act for a SEGA diehard, but I had to play the new RE. It was well worth it. Twenty years later, and Capcom are rebuilding RE2 from the ground up. It’s not a remaster; it’s an...

Battlerite Royale: Hands-on

Sep 16, 2018

I’ve never played a Battle Royale game before, as I’m not a big fan of deathmatch style game modes; but as a big fan of Battlerite, I was interested enough to give this version a go. It hasn’t done anything to convert me to the genre. As far as I’m aware Battlerite is the first, or at least one of the first, non-shooter brands to attempt...

Battlefield V no longer taking COD on head-on

Sep 1, 2018

EA has announced that Battlefield V will no longer be coming out on October 19th, but will arrive a month later on November 20th. With the game previously being wedged between Black Ops 4 and Red Dead Redemption 2, it makes sense for them to give the game a bit of breathing room. In a blog post Oskar Gabrielson, the general manager of developer DICE, said:...

Let’s get the important bit out of the way first. Yes the title is a desperate and terrible pun, and no, it doesn’t tell people what the piece is about. I like writing these sorts of godawful jokes, and it’s a habit that’s only gotten worse since people started paying me to write them. I was going to go with ‘stream if you wanna go...
