Gran Turismo 6 is out today, ahead of the date I had personally expected it to be released. It’s not yet 2097. Still, it’s out today. Is it the best racing simulation available on consoles, or has that microtransaction nonsense ruined the game?
Some say that a review round-up is easily confused when confronted with a Wii U, and that the review round-up is the real power behind e-tolling. All we know is, is that there are some review scores after the jump.
Neeeeed…more…launch gaaaaaames. If there was an Xbox One game that had both myself and Geoff drooling at E3 this year, it had to be Dead Rising 3.Brash, violent and in your face with a chainsaw duct-taped to an oar, the game was plenty of fun. The embargo has lifted for Dead Rising 3, and the critics have plenty to say about the running dead simulator.
I got to get some hands-on with PlayStation 4 exclusive Knack earlier this year, and found the whole thing to be terribly dull. I was hoping that it was because my playthrough lacked context, and that the game would end up being as similarly charming as the similarly-styled Xbox 360 launch game Kameo. Reviews have hit the internet hard, and they’ve not been kind to poor old platformer.
Though I enjoyed Bioshock Infinite, it was probably the biggest disappointment of the year for me. What started as a smart look at another world devolved in to yet another damned shooter. It was good, but I expected better. It felt complete though; I really don’t need to see any more of booker DeWitt, Columbia or Elizabeth. Or at least I didn’t, until I heard that its DLC was set in gold old Rapture. It’s out today to Season Pass (ugh) holders and those who want to buy some DLC. Is it any good?
In life, there are few certainties. Death, taxes and having a massively muscled behemoth clotheslining your body out of the ring, are just a few examples. Here’s what the critics have to say so far about WWE 2K14.
I didn’t like Assassin’s Creed III very much, and in retrospect, I feel I was far too kind when I reviewed the game. I recently got to play quite a bit of its successor, Black Flag on the PS4 – and I was very nearly convinced that Assassin’s Creed IV would be a return to form for the series. Reviews for the game have started trickling in – and I may have been right.
Gear up, soldiers! It’s time to enter the digital battlefield once again, as EA and DICE’s latest entry in to its war glorifying franchise nears release. In just two days you’ll get to commandeer tanks, helicopters and fighter jets – and for the first time in a long time, take the fight to the sea as well. Battlefield 4 is easily one of the most anticipated games of the year for shooter fans. Is it any good?
Depending on your own predilection Quantic Dream’s David Cage is either a visionary auteur, or a pretentious twit who wishes he had the talent to make actual films instead of games. Whichever side of that fence you sit on, you have to admit that he does have a certain flair for visuals, and his latest bit of interactive fiction, Beyond: Two Souls is a beautiful thing to behold. Is it any good though?
And racing in from behind, it’s team Lagz! They’ve been beaten at every corner like a Jar Jar Binks sex doll, but they’ve greased themselves up to slip in from the rear and claim victory as they reach around the apex! All thanks possibly to F1 2013!
It’s very nearly digital football season, with both of the heavy-weight footie sims out this month, Pro Evo 14 is the first out of the gate, and the first of the series in a long time to run on an all-new engine; the same bit of technical wizardry that’ll power the next Metal Gear solid games. It’s out tomorrow in SA (and other PAL territories), with FIFA 14 hitting shelves next week. While uber footie fans will end up with both, the more discerning gamer will probably only end up with one…but which?
In news that will most likely make people who are sick of GTA V headlines sicker, the game is almost out. Apparently, we weren’t cool enough to get an advance copy on time, but the following outlets certainly did. Here’s what they’re saying about the next chapter in Grand Theft Auto.
People of Lazygamer! Lend me your ears! And this time, clean them first! I bring news of the latest release from the Germanic border, where Total War: Rome 2 has waged war on reviewers across a front that stretches from the new world all the way to a tiny village in France where an indomitable band of Gauls still resists the Pax Romana. Here are the latest results!
Ever since getting a bit of hands on with the console version of Diablo 3 at E3 this year, I’ve been pretty convinced that it’s the superior version of the game; offline, 4 player couch and online co-op, direct controls, a slick easy-to-use interface and the absolute lack of a real money auction house? Yep, already better. But what do the critics think?
Capcom’s been farming out its games to Western developers lately, and for the most part, the results have not been good. Dead Rising seems to be in capable hands. DmC caused a stir, but was a decent game in the end. Bionic Commando? Rubbish. Shooter Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City was pretty damned awful. Lost Planet 3, developed by Spark seems to be more like those last examples. And that’s not a good thing.
