What's old is new. At least, that's the saying. While some people have already jumped into the new generation, and others (like Darryn) have even abandoned the old generation consoles, many people are still playing the newest games on PS3 and Xbox 360. Our best game for old consoles certainly makes them feel new once more.

2014 is most likely the final year for any cross-console games. It’s a transition that we’ve gone through before, from the PlayStation 1 and N64 days, all the way up to the latest devices as players hop from PS3 to PS4 and Xbox 360 to Xbox One. As you might imagine, there’s always going to be a gap between games released across generations. But right now, that divide is simply massive.

Resogun may not have been my first PlayStation 4 game, but it very certainly is one of the very best that I’ve ever played on that console. And now, it looks like the older generation will be getting a chance to keep humans on their lawn.

Aren’t we just the luckiest bunch this year. We’re getting not one, but two different Assassin’s Creed titles launching within a week of each other. The one kicks off a new era for the franchise, with revamped gameplay and a brand new time period. But before all of that there was the American saga, and this launch trailer for Assassin’s Creed: Rogue sets up the conclusion beautifully.

We all know that GTA V is going to look prettier than a gift-wrapped Ferrari under your Christmas tree. After all, I’d be disappointed if the game wasn’t fielding some shinier tech when it launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. But how pretty does it actually look then?

If I have to be honest, Destiny has been a massive let down for me. I've grown bored of Bungie's MMO-like shooter very quickly, and I know I'm not the only one. But that doesn't mean no one is playing Destiny. In fact, a lot of people still are - who are all looking forward to the first expansion which now has a release date.

I’M AFRAID I’VE GOT SOME BAAAAAAAAAD NEWS FOR YOU! WWE 2K15 is promising to revitalise the sports entertainment genre with rivalries, updated rosters and visuals that you can most definitely see. Provided that you’re getting a current-gen version that is. But if you’re stuck with an older console (A running theme today it seems), then you might be in for a WWE game that’s about to lay some Sweet Chin Music on your moderate expectations.

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.

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.

HEY KIDS! This year, December isn’t the barren wasteland of non-gaming releases thanks to a veritable glut of October and November launches. There are some great games coming out. Some big, some small and some in between like my gut after the traditional feast of Sandy Claws. But if there’s one game that has my blood on fire, it has to be the new Guilty Gear game. That’s right my lovelies, the Yuletide season is about to get messy with off the wall combos and special moves when the latest GG game arrives.

Yesterday Bungie detailed a new hot fix that would be going live later in the day. It did, bring a host of small tweaks and changes to the game’s weapons and raids. Some players, however, are finding that the patch also manages to destroy their Destiny installation altogether.

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?

Despite all of the negative press, Destiny still has a surprisingly large active player base. It might not be as high as Bungie would've hoped, but their continued support could entice some burned players to return. Especially those who loved their scout rifles, because they're finally useful.
