Like most people in possession of a PS4 or Xbone, I’m currently playing through Red Dead Redemption 2. That game has an incredible, generation-defining open world that is...

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.

As you probably...

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

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...
