Beta watch this Destiny 2 video to get ready

Jul 17, 2017

Are you excited about this new Destiny game? If so, you’re not alone. Lots of people talking about it on the interwebs. At least nine. The first game was phenomenally popular, and its sequel is on track to equal if not obliterate that success. If you’ve pre-ordered, then you’ll be able to start playing the beta tomorrow evening (on PS4) or the...

Escape from Hyrule

Escape from Hyrule

Jul 6, 2017

Have you ever tried to escape from a room? Not in an “I accidentally locked myself in a room and must now escape it” sort of way but in a SAW kind of way but with far less fatal conclusions if you fail… or if you win. Okay, maybe not like SAW at all, but more like a room in a Zelda game where a fun puzzle must be completed before you can go on. Or...

Guys, guys, they’re releasing a game with a physical manual

Guys, guys, they’re releasing a game with a physical manual

Videogame packaging has evolved significantly over the years. It used to be all about the cardboard; the elders amongst you will remember that each new PC game used to come in a box the size of a moderately large caravan.

Nonetheless, it did some things right, and had some interesting ideas. We’re actually pleased to hear it’s getting a sequel, which we hope will tidy up the mistakes of the first game. Nights of Azure 2: Bride...

Street Fighter Charity Album

Jun 22, 2017

Street Fighter is practically a religion for some people, and the series itself sits amongst the most highly-respected and well received games of all time. The fighting game scene has had its share of well publicised downsides, so it’s a breath of fresh air to be able to talk about something that’s not just good but genuinely great coming from the...

Atari are making a new console

Atari are making a new console

Jun 16, 2017

Well, what it says up there, really. Atari have had a bit of an odd journey into the twenty first century. Their last games console was the Jaguar, inflicted onto the world at the end of 1993. Discontinued less than three years later, the machine crashed and burned spectacularly through a combination of high prices, unwanted add-ons, and a lack of quality...
