It’s alive, it’s alive! There’s been sparse news on Ubisoft’s free to play shooter in recent months, with some fearing that Ghost Recon Online was deader than disco. Turns out the game has been given a new lease of life, and will be known as Ghost Recon Phantoms.
I hate waiting for release dates. Microsoft is making us wait for a date for local launch of Xbox One, and the games delayed at the end of 2013 are still dangling over us. Do we finally have a date for Watch Dogs? Well, maybe.
What does gold mean exactly? It means that the game is finished, wrapped up and good to go according to Sucker Punch’s Brian Fleming. No delays, no setbacks and no missed street dates. InFAMOUS: Second Son will make its March 21 release for the PlayStation 4.

Mobile games have a pretty sorry reputation, some of it deservedly so. But then there’s Simogo, a developer who put out two – count ‘em, two – excellent iOS games last year that should make you rethink what the mobile platform is capable of.

One of my most anticipated games for the year has to be Child of Light. A fairytale-inspired RPG with watercolor design? Please just take all my money! Now, I know when I can throw money at it - and it's not much longer to wait.
After Nintendo President Satoru Iwata announced he was taking a pay cut, he dropped a tonne of information to reassure shareholders of Nintendo’s financial future.

Right off the bat, this is the release date for PS3 and 360, so that’s going to tick off a couple of people already. People want EDF for the current gen consoles and PC.

If there’s one thing that I’ve picked up on in gaming, is that this industry is full of trends. Cyclical trends. We’ve got new consoles on the way. Several genres are making a comeback and old favourites are returning. And burning rubber at full speed, is Carmageddon, the road rage racing game which just refuses to give up. Bring it on brother.
South Park is pretty much a Bovril show. You either love or hate it, and there’s no middle ground for it.
