Battlerite Royale: Hands-on

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...

There’s no “I” in stream

There’s no “I” in stream

Aug 26, 2018

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...

Battlefield V revealed, morons unite

Battlefield V revealed, morons unite

May 24, 2018

EA have officially announced Battlefield V, in a video packed with pleasant surprises.

I finally got myself PSVR a few months ago (and then only because I was able to enjoy a hefty discount). In the time I’ve spent with it since, I’ve by turns been mightily impressed and incredibly disappointed. My most recent VR purchase has been Farpoint, which serves as an instructive microcosm of the highs and lows of virtual reality. More...

Seán’s Six Favourite Games of 2017

Jan 16, 2018

In the ultimate game of one-upmanship, 2016 – which was a pretty terrible year all around – has been trumped by 2017. Another god-awful year full of anguish and pain but some mostly good video games. Silver linings and all that, except they’re not really clouds, they’re more like shitstorms. Anyway, in no particular order, here are my picks for the...

(Probably) imaginary David Cage sequels

(Probably) imaginary David Cage sequels

Jan 12, 2018

With evidence of David Cage incorporating domestic abuse into the game with predictable care and sensitivity, we’re all looking forward to Detroit: Become Human more than ever. The only criticism that anybody could have of his games, surely, is that there aren’t enough of them! Fortunately, we can present to you a world-exclusive look at some sequels in the...
