Well that’s certainly not the way you’d like to kick off your weekend if you’re a racing fan. Project Cars, one of the most anticipated racing titles ever, isn't going to be launching this year anymore. Instead, it's suffered a bit of a delay.
You know how good Shadow of Mordor is? I finished the game, wrote my review, and I've still gone back for more game time. Now they've added a photo mode so you can take the perfect images of all your best and worst in-game moments. But it's not so simple on Xbox One.
Evolve was a definite stand-out at this year’s rAge Expo. There wasn’t once where I walked past the stand and didn’t see a massive line around it, even before the doors had opened to the public. People love hunting down a group of hunters as the monster, and adding to this beastly roster is exactly how Turtle Rock is going to keep the game alive.
Bugger Resolution-Gate and this obsession with eating 1080 peas, the red-headed stepchild of vegetables. The true issue in gaming should be all about frame rates. Nothing beats the silky smooth 60 frames per second of some games, and no matter how much I’m sold on a game aiming for a “cinematic” feel with 24 to 30 frames per second, I’ll go for the soap opera look every time. The Crew is one such game that is going for that 30fps territory. But it might be driving faster on PC.
The Evil Within has a lot of promise to live up to. Fans of Shinji Mikami's previous work have high hopes that this new survival horror will rekindle the slower, more dread-filled days of the Resident Evil franchise. Does it succeed in delivering a heart attack inducing experience?
Or at least, I never will be. If you've been seeking shelter under a rock in the middle of nowhere for a while now, you may have missed some of the massive changes Advanced Warfare is making to Call of Duty's multiplayer. That's fine though, because this single video has your covered.
Around this time last week I was getting ready to board a plane. I very briefly visited the land of bangers and mash, mushy peas and fish, for a little sneak preview of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. I got a little hands-on time with the multiplayer and a good look at one of the early single-player missions. I walked away a little conflicted.
One game to find them, one game to rule them all and in the darkness bind them. Pretty much the sleeper hit of the year, Shadow Of Mordor has plenty going for it. Tolkien lore, detailed landscapes and a Nemesis System that gives the game a hefty tactical side. But is it pretty? Does it shine like Galadriel’s hair, or does it look like Gollum’s unwashed loin-cloth, my precious?
Destiny is one of the largest new IPs - it has sold tons of copies, is getting loads of attention and causing plenty of debates. However, the PC master race has been missing out. Plenty of you have been desperate to use your mouse and keyboard for some Destiny pew pew action, and now you can.
Some of you (read: Umar) still believe that The Last Guardian might still be released one day. However, a bunch of the guys from The Last Guardian development team have actually been working on a different project, but it's also beautiful.
So FIFA 15 is released tomorrow locally and everyone is once again expecting a well refined football simulator with some of the best footballing stars on the planet showcasing their amazing skills.
Today is September 23. And while this is a day that I’ll remember for a devastating downtime of around 29 minutes when Twitter crashed, it’s also a day that many a gamer will cherish, having bought an Xbox One console. I want to get one, eventually- but I lost all my money gambling against Geoff trying to guess which number he was thinking of. Still,if there’s one game that will sell Xbox Ones like original recipe KFC, it’s Sunset Overdrive. A game that you won’t see on PC anytime soon.
Oh, you think your mouse finger powerful, don’t you? Well I trained my hand at ten times Earth’s normal gravity! Mine is the hand that knows the Heyoh-Ken technique! My hand clicking power is over 9000! And I’m going to need it when Dragon Ball Xenoverse rocks the dragon on PC.
There’s a ton of new games arriving in October and November, but December belongs to the Master Chief. The original adventures starring that stoic hero are getting a visual bump for the Xbox One, and could most likely be the perfect entry point for gamers interested in Halo. But what about PC gamers? Why aren’t they getting any of that Games For Windows love? Turns out, Master Chief isn’t made for PC fun times.
Final Fantasy IV has been around since way back in 1991. it’s gone through loads of re-releases since then, and even had its very own remake. All of those versions have been on everything from the PlayStation 1 through to the Nintendo DS and even iOS. Absent from all of that though was a PC version. That’s just changed, as the game has finally arrived on Steam.
