I may be a completely rubbish driver in the real world, but when it comes to video games, I’m even more dangerous and unskilled…Wait, that doesn’t sound right. Anyway, if I’m going to be crashing constantly in a racing game, you can be damn well sure that I’ll want to do so with a vehicle that comes with a price tag that makes the Nkandla not-a-compound look like small change in comparison. And Forza Horizon 2 has plenty of those cars available.

EA is known for doing some pretty despicable things over the years. Season Passes, shoe-horned micro-transactions,  Origin and more - like trying to market Dungeon Keeper as a “free to play” game. There’s a reason (vocal idiots, mostly) that they were voted worst company in America for two years in a row, and now they’ve just made themselves strong contenders once again.

Aah Naruto games, truly you are the Call of Duty of annual fighting genre releases. Well clap your hands together and raise your fingers in weird poses, because you can bet your ass that little to nothing will have changed in the next release, but at least it’ll look pretty-no-jutsu.

On the surface, Hellraid has everything. A dark fantasy atmosphere. Plenty of varied monsters. A solid combat structure. Environments which have an authentic feel of dank death around the corner. And yet for some reason, the game is just lacking…something.

It seems that you can’t walk anywhere these days without some twonk in a VR getup running into you and gouging your eye out with a PS Move controller by accident, but I digress. The Oculus Rift has been hogging all the headlines as of late, but there’s a new challenger on the virtually real field. Project Morpheus is its name, and it’s a fancy piece of tech.

It’s a World Cup year which means we have a new FIFA World Cup game from EA Sports -  but as I’ve said before it is logical to be a bit wary of these games as they are usually quite poor.

Infamous: Second Son demo gameplay has surfaced on YouTube and it looks pretty damn slick to say the least. There are two videos from the event in Taipei but I’m only going to show the one as the other one is not translated and more of an overview of the event itself and doesn’t show anything new.

For a next-gen game, Killer Instinct certainly is taking a different route in getting interest pumped up for that console. While all the other games are going to cost you plenty of Rands, Killer Instinct will be a F2P launch title. Actually, no, scratch that. It’s a demo.

The Pokémon Game Show on 17 and 18 August was the first time and place for anyone to try out Pokemon X and Pokemon Y. Hopefully our guys get to punch children out of their way in Germany so they can also get hands on with the upcoming 3DS title, but in the meantime, here is what I can gather from around the internet.

One of the coolest features of Sony’s PlayStation 4 and its Gaikai-powered streaming service is that you can start playing the games you’re busy downloading before they’re all done taking up hard drive space. The Last of Us, from Naughty Dog will trial that service – on the PlayStation 3.

Feel like ripping open a crack in time and space through your wallet? Because that’s pretty much what March is for right now. So many big games are out in the third month from the sun, and they all want to hook you in. How is God of War: Ascension planning to do that? With a The Last of Us demo. And now, that demo has a release date.

EA Games has announced that they will be releasing a demo for their upcoming Army of Two: Devils Cartel title that is attempting to redefine the bro-shooter genre with a bit more of a story line this time around.

I like demos. They give me a small taste of what I can expect from a game without having to shell out any cash. But sometimes, instead of leaving you wanting more,   they can create a false impression of game and turn you right off the prospect of purchasing. It seems demos do more harm than good – and games with demos end up selling worse than those marketed via trailer alone.

A number of Wii U owners are pretty pissed at Ubisoft for delaying one of their most anticipated games for the year, Rayman Legends; a delay caused by the treacherous act of making the game multiplatform. Ubisoft has apologised..sort of. Wii U owners will now be treated to an exclusive…demo.
