Mountains and Myths in Far Cry 4

Far Cry 3 ended up being far more fun and successful than anyone who played the second game might have imagined. The series is back for a fourth adventure in a fantastic new location, this time the snowy mountains of Kyrat, a fictional city nestled somewhere in the white-capped mountains of Nepal.

Hands on with Claptrap in Borderlands: The Pre Sequel!

I’ve been mostly ambivalent about the new Borderlands. Set on Pandora’s Moon, Elpis. the game charts Handsome Jack’s decent in to lunacy, before he’s the bad guy. Here’s he’s assembled a team of vault hunters who aren’t even close to being the good guys – but it’s their job to get rid of even badder guys, and save the world.

That interview came from the moon! We talk Destiny at Gamescom

I was booked in for an hour of hands-on with Destiny at Gamescom, and I was excited to get to play something new; some little bit of hitherto unseen bit of Destiny, and share that experience with all of you. My excited turned to disappointment when I sat down in my session, only to realise I’d be playing bits from the beta again.

Games you need on PSN’s Sale

The PlayStation Network is having a sale. It's actually been going for a while, but the games were pretty lame and I didn't want to waste your time or mine reporting on it. Now they've upped their game, and your wallet might just beg for mercy.

Ubisoft is only threatening itself with Assassin’s Creed this year

Ubisoft is pulling something bold this holiday season. Instead of releasing the same title for both generations of consoles, they’ve instead opted to make two separate titles, both of which act as core releases. It sounds like a risky idea; one that could leave fans of the franchise confused and frustrated at the idea of deciding which one to pick up.

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue unveiled for last-gen consoles

There’s going to be two very different Assassin’s Creed titles this year. We’ve seen Unity in all of its next-generation French glory, but what about a game for those who have yet to make the leap? Rogue is the answer to that question, and it has more of my attention than Unity does currently. That probably has something to do with a certain Templar Darth Vader though.

Dead or Alive is still appealing to perverts

Remember a while back when Dead or Alive developer Tecmo said it would be dialling back the rampant sexism and creepy boob fixation inherent in its Dead or Alive Fighting games? Remember how they said they wanted more realistic depictions of women, and that it was silly to appeal to a teenage boy demographic?  Did you believe ‘em? I hope not, because the game’s latest DLC turns it up to 11.

The Last of Us Remastered review– Remasterful

I’ve often let loose my particularly unpopular opinion that Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us is an overrated game. That revelation’s generally met with gasps and dropped jaws, though what many seem unable to grasp is that overrated doesn’t mean bad. The Last of Us is one of the best games available for the PlayStation 3, and now, with its remastered version available just over a year later, it’s one of the best games available on the PlayStation 4.

There’s a new F1 game coming this year…

Many have a strange fascination with motorsport that I’m unable to comprehend. I don’t see the appeal of watching some vehicle go around and around a track for hours. I do like the hum and buzz of the engines through the TV though, as that sort of white noise is perfect for a Sunday afternoon nap. Nothing will get me to sleep quicker than actually playing a Formula 1 game – but for people who love to play a digital version of the sport there’s good news.

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue coming for old gen systems?

Assassin’s Creed Unity is coming this year, and it’s shaping up to be one of the more…*ahem* revolutionary titles in the series. Set in that very famous era of cutting rich French people’s heads off, it’s coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC only. Don’t feel bad, those of you stuck with those old-gen consoles, there’s one coming for you, too. Previously rumoured to be called Assassin’s Creed Comet, it’s now quite probably set to be called Assassin’s Creed Rogue.

These are August’s REAL PlayStation Plus games

Earlier this week, wild and silly rumours suggested that we’d be getting The Swapper and Octodad, along with Saints Row 4 and Blood Dragon as the subscription-granted freebies with PlayStation Plus. As I surmised, the list seemed bogus for a number of reasons, and it turns out it was, with the developers for those games denying the rumours. Here’s the real list of games.

Sony not impressed by EA Access

EA’s got that fancy new subscription service coming to the Xbox One, that’ll allow gamers on that console discounts on games, free catalogue titles, and pre-release access to game trials up to five days in advance provided they’re active subscribers. It’s in a many ways a little similar to PlayStation Plus. Sony’s not impressed.
