Like many of you, I wish I could get into one of my costumes and actually drive a vehicle. But cosplay can be kind of restrictive at times. Hell, my previous Batsuit which was modelled on the 1989 movie version of the costume was so authentic that I couldn’t even turn my neck properly. Which would have made using the K53 method of driving a damn nightmare. Still, some costumes can be worn when travelling the roads. Like this Predator has just proven.

Waitaminute, that ain’t a human on the Friday ION! That’s the Crushinator! Yep, it looks like we’ve come to the end of the eye-candy era of Lazygamer. Now, don’t think this is because we’re being pressured to do so by the militant wing of the Salvation Army. It’s just, the times are changing, and as Lazygamer seeks to be bigger, better and a lot more ethical in PSU reviews, we also need to move on from such visual content.

Numbers. Numbers no jutsu. All the ninja. That’s been a core part of the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm games for quite some time, as I imagine that years ago one of the bosses drunkenly demanded that every single shinobi possible be included in that franchise with every new release, presumably after getting completely smashed on some good whisky. Hell, it’s what I do regularly whenever I get a miniscule taste of power. So thanks to those decisions, there’ll be even more characters popping up in the next Naruto game. And technically, they're a trio of lethal tweens.

MOOOOOOORTAL KOMBAT! 22 years of ass-kickers uniting and heads being ripped off with Highlander-like efficiency have all culminated in one new Mortal Kombat game. It’s a game which had plenty of appeal, fans and tickets for the hype train. So naturally, the game has sold gangbusters so far, and it may be on track to be the biggest hit in the franchise to date.

I’ve got a lot of love for Housemarque, after they went ahead and created easily my favourite console launch game of all time, Resogun. There was something magical about that game, and I’m hoping to see some of it in their follow-up title, Alienation. And it’s a game with a bunch of new details and screenshots.

Mortal Kombat X Brutalities! They live up their brutal namesake, and they’re hard as nails to perform correctly. But the extra bit of humiliation is so, so worth it. They’re also a great way to finish a match, allowing you to instantly kill an opponent in an especially gory manner. Want to know how to perform them? We’ve got you covered.

Following the blockbuster release of Grand Theft Auto IV, Rockstar once again got back to work on their iconic franchise in 2009. Not only aiming for a game that looked bigger, better and hewed closer to the ridiculous side of the franchise, Rockstar wanted to create a game that told a better story. And the best way to do that, was to triple down on the ambitions.

I’VE BEEN TO THE DANGER ZONE! It’s time. Time to kick some ass. Time to kick all of the ass in Mortal Kombat X, an arena which is perfect for such boot-to gluteus maximus shenanigans. And as Lazygamer’s ultimate warrior, I’ve found my first victim. I hope you’re ready….Dave.

Look, I don’t ask for much in life, outside of finally winning the f***ing lottery for once. But a game starring the king of all kaiju, battling it out with some atomic flame-breath destruction and the chance to play as those various rivals as well? I’m freakin’ sold man. Completely and absolutely. GODZILLA ONOMATOPEIAH TIME! SKREEEEEEEOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNK!

Little known fact: The most dangerous entity in all of the Marvel Universe isn’t Thanos, Galactus or Apocalypse. It’s Squirrel Girl. Yes, that Squirrel Girl. Seriously, she’s an Omega-level threat who has handed various heavyweight villains their asses to them. Doctor Doom? Not even his vaunted might and intellect could stop his armour from being obliterated by a swarm of squirrels! So what happens when she expands her horizons and takes on an entire Wondercon of cosplayers? Asses are kicked, that’s what.

Following the release of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas in 2004, Rockstar immediately began work on a game that would be even more ambitious in scope, size and narrative. With a core team of around 150 developers that were led by the key members from the Grand Theft Auto 3 development squad, Rockstar got to work on a game that would graphically surpass everything that they had done so far.

Mining! It’s the industry of the future! Especially if said future results in the city of Johannesburg falling down a massive sinkhole thanks to unscrupulous activities which have weakened the ground around that metropolis! But data-mining is also good! And that’s exactly what has happened with Destiny, as details regarding the upcoming House Of Wolves DLC pack have been data-mined out of the latest patch. So uh, spoilers and all that.

One of the biggest secrets in the Pokémon games since 2013, has been Hoopa. A mystery that’s been as badly kept as the secret identity of the Flash. The mythical legendary has been locked away in the 3D game files of Pokémon X, Y, Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby for ages now, with savvy players managing to hack the elusive creature out of the game. And it looks like Hoopa is finally getting ready to step out into the spotlight.

You know what’s better than playing games? Many, many other things but I’m contractually obligated not to mention them. Still playing games that you’ve bought with funds that are going straight to charity on the other hand, is an easy feel-good experience! And EA has teamed up with Humble Bundle for a sequel Origin special. Here’s what a whole dollar (or more) will get you.
