Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice: hands-on preview

Sep 30, 2018

I was bloody awful at Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. I lined up for well over two hours just so I could embarrass myself, dying over and over again. To make matters worse, at least one member of the dev team was watching my pathetic attempts to progress through his game. Just a terrible experience all round. The game seemed pretty good though. As you probably...

Devil May Cry 5: hands-on preview

Sep 25, 2018

Capcom had another strong showing at this year’s Tokyo Game Show. Last year it was all about the Monster Hunter World demos; this time the focus was on Resident Evil 2 Remake and Devil May Cry 5. The double-scenario RE2 demo was excellent, but it was the stylish Devil May Cry 5 that took centre stage at Capcom’s booth. DMC 5, the first mainline DMC in a...

Resident Evil 2 Remake: hands-on preview

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.

Battlefield V no longer taking COD on head-on

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:...

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...
