We’re entering that time of year where all the biggest and blockbusteriest games are on their way. While money doesn’t always guarantee success, it certainly does help and you’ll most likely be hard-pressed to find a game that actually gets downright slammed by all the critics. That doesn’t mean that 2014 hasn’t had some bad games so far. Hell, it’s had some of the very worst games ever released actually. Here’s a look at the games that smelt like Batman Forever.

What’s your favourite GTA game? I’m not the series’ biggest fan, but if I had to pick one, it’d probably be Vice City. something about the setting, and the cheesy 80’s music just resonates with me. For most though, if it’s not the newest GTA V, it’s likely GTA San Andreas. And it looks like it’s coming back.

Dedicated servers are an important element in the longevity of any multiplayer game. The last Call of Duty, Ghosts, had a hybrid server system using both listen and dedicated servers. It didn’t work very well – and is at least one of the reasons COD Ghosts’ userbase has dwindled. Could Advanced Warfare make up for those sins? Maybe.

It's now more rare for a game to launch without a Season Pass than with one. Sometimes the post launch content on offer justifies the extra little cash injection, as is the case with Far Cry 4. You're getting single-player, co-op and multiplayer content, as well as a little trip into a Yeti's den. I highly doubt he'll be as cuddly as I hope.

Right now DICE, the guys behind Battlefield, are busy making the long-awaited sequel to Star Wars Battlefront. It’s a game that many have been clamouring for for nearly ten years. Though original developer Pandemic was shuttered, there was going to be a Battlefront III from Timesplitters developer Free Radical – but it was cancelled at the eleventh hour. That hasn’t stopped images and footage of the game escaping in to the wild. Here’s some more.

I have no idea why publishers are doing this more and more recently, but launch trailers for games are coming in way before games are set for launch. The latest game to see a launch trailer half a month before its release is Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

It’s that time of the year again. Actually it was that time last month, but our review copies only arrived late so we couldn’t bring you the breaking news that FIFA 15 is pretty much FIFA 14 with a new number on the end.

We’re in a new current-gen. This is the time of the year that I’m officially declaring new-gen and next-gen to be obsolete words, after the adoption of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. We’re in a generation of gaming that is promising more power, more social interactions and less shiny horse armour DLC. But to get there, some of us had to let go of the past. How easy was it for you?

I am rubbish at Call of Duty. So rubbish in fact, that I can’t tell you the last time I got a score streak that earned me anything more than a slap in the face.   I’m not one of those guys who regularly call in choppers, nukes, UAV’s and packs of rabid dogs. Here’s a new video showing how Call of Duty Advanced Warfare’s highly customisable multiplayer scorestreaks will work. Basically, It’s a video showing a bunch of digital toys I’ll never get to play with.

I’ve said before how I have close to zero interest in the newest game bearing the Saint’s Row name. I loved Saint’s Row for being silly back when GTA was in its dark, emo teenager phase – but now that that’s fun again, and Saint’s Row’s turned the stupid up to eleventy bajillion, I just don’t see the point. Still, as far as odd wish-fulfilment fantasy games go, Saint’s Row is now near the top. Especially if you’ve ever wanted to go to hell.
