Posted by on Sep 18, 2014

Oh, an announcement on Twitter about Hyrule Warriors. That game sure looks interesting, I wonder what the announcement is? The first of 4 paid DLC packs for #HyruleWarriors...

Glitchspace: Hands-On

Posted by on Sep 9, 2014

Glitchspace excites me mentally. I love the idea of programming but didn’t really have the capacity to learn it or use it meaningfully. Glitchspace uses semi-simple...

Hands-On: Captain Toad, Yoshi & Kirby

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Adam: I was looking forward to seeing this the most, having been a huge fan of Captain Toad’s levels from Super Mario 3D World. It’s exactly that but with some new mechanics. The haunted house level had doors that led to one another, set into walls that you could move with the gamepad, which will hopefully be...

Hands-On: Sonic Boom

Jul 14, 2014

Adam: I was quite looking forward to Sonic Boom since its team is composed of people behind one of my favourite 3D platformers, Jak & Daxter. I figured that we might finally see the good Sonic game that’s been missing for varying lengths of time (depending on who you ask) thanks to a new team with new mechanics and a new take on Sonic. It certainly...

Logitech G502 Proteus Core Gaming Mouse: review

Jul 11, 2014

The Proteus Core may sound like an essential component for space travel, but it’s also the latest precision gaming mouse to leave the Logitech Labs that packs a Hercules-on-crack punch on paper. Sporting a quite frankly ridiculous 12,000 DPI sensor, this first-of-its-kind gaming mouse is the ultimate stat chaser’s dream. First thing’s first, you will...

E3 2014 best impressions

Jul 9, 2014

Last year’s E3 was all about the new consoles from Sony and Microsoft, but thankfully this year the focus was purely on the games. While there were no poor shows, there weren’t any ‘wow’ moments either, with most of the new games on show scheduled to launch in 2015. Microsoft hit back with plenty of games announcements this year, after...

Hands-On: Hyrule Warriors

Jul 8, 2014

Adam: I’d never played a Dynasty Warriors game so didn’t really have too clear an idea what to expect from this and, while it’s not your typical Zelda game, it might just be the best thing I saw all day. Hyrule Warriors takes the Zelda world and throws hordes upon hordes of enemies into it until it’s positively flooded with angry beasties. I played as...

Looks like The Sims 4 began with Sim City-like DRM

Jul 8, 2014

EA and Maxis can’t do anything right lately, according to many fans of The Sims. The recent removal of several features of the game from The Sims 4 – including that ever so important transitionary period, the toddler stage – has angered them. Understandably so when their main complaint is that they’ll sell it to them later, a practice...
