Rocksteady should go Beyond with Batman

Rocksteady should go Beyond with Batman

Jul 20, 2015

The Arkham series of Batman games vary from very good to Origins and, although the PC version of Knight is awful, it’s still meant to be a half decent game if the console reviews are anything to go by. But, Batman is getting a little worn out and Arkham is hopefully finished. It’d be nice for more Batman games to come out but they’d need to be...

I still love Titanfall, and refuse to apologise

I still love Titanfall, and refuse to apologise

Jun 22, 2015

If you need to ask why I love Titanfall, I can only presume that you’re unaware of the giant robots and jetpacks. Reasonable at it seems to me to present that first sentence as a convincing argument of Titanfall’s worth, I suppose tradition dictates that I should elaborate a bit. I’m sure many of you have a good understanding of what...

My life as a gamer dad

May 16, 2015

Having become a father just shy of four years ago, the time I get to play games has been somewhat reduced today, compared to my responsibility-free younger years.

Set in Victorian London, it has the potential to provide a memorable, captivating atmosphere; not to mention legendary historical figures, and some iconic buildings to explore and climb. But how much of this will come to pass, how well will it be handled, and – most...

THAT Hotline Miami 2 scene: Brave or stupid?

Mar 16, 2015

That scene in Hotline Miami 2. You know, that scene. The one that Dennaton Games, caught with their proverbial pants down when it was first seen long before release, assured everybody “it’s not what it looks like” about. I haven’t played the game yet, so am in no position to comment on how it is presented in context; but a great many people who...

Peter Molyneux becomes a chef (in my head)

Peter Molyneux becomes a chef (in my head)

Feb 16, 2015

As I stand outside in the soggy crowd, ineffectively thrusting my hands further into my pockets in reaction to the rain-flecked wind, I think back to when it first began. Poor Peter Molyneux, hounded from the games industry simply because he repeatedly produced videogames that bore little resemblance to what he promised. Shortly before that, he realised that it...
