I absolutely adore puzzle games. There's little in this world that can better the feeling of solving a particular puzzle that I've been stumped by for hours. A wave of satisfaction that feels incredible rewarding, only made better by the appearance of another challenge. Like I said, I love puzzles, and that's why I'm already in love with Cadence.
Resident Evil Revelations is that one entry into the series that fans want more of. The once-3DS exclusive took away some of the action, made ammo a scarce resource and actually brought some of the horror back. It's no surprise then that it's lauded over some of the numbered releases, which makes news of a sequel even sweeter.
I've been quite lucky - I've seen demos and even gotten my hands on the upcoming Civilization: Beyond Earth. Now, Firaxis is showing off what I've seen behind closed doors on YouTube, and it really is quite something.
There's something about the wilderness. The fresh air. The green leaves. The tall tress. It would be a shame if everything...oh I don't know...just went up in smoke now wouldn't it? That's exactly where Firewatch wants to trap you.
Who cares about honour among thieves? There isn't even honour among orcs. In this latest story trailer for Shadow of Mordor, Ratbag is your right-hand orc.
Destiny is literally around the corner. I'm extremely excited to jump back into Bungie's online adventure on Xbox One with a few friends, but we're going to be missing out on quite a bit on content that only Sony players will get access to. Consider me jealous.
I'll tell you guys a little secret - I'm not a huge sports fan, but I love the NBA. Back in 'merica, I used to follow it rather religiously. I love the pace of the game, the frenetic energy and the ridiculously large athletes. But the best part is the crazy presenters. All of that is recreated in NBA 2K15.
I'm really amped for Civilization: Beyond Earth. The bit that I was allowed to tell you about the game was awesome, and I can't wait to share more about it. Firaxis shared more information about the start of the game in this live stream.
I’ll admit; I haven’t been keeping up with the second season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead adventure. It’s not because it’s boring or worse than the first season, but mostly because I was far too busy enjoying The Wolf Among Us when episodes were being released for both. So no, I haven’t watched the last trailer for The Walking Dead, but that doesn’t mean you can’t.
Oh Shadow of Mordor - I keep feeling bad that you weren't on my radar until E3. I suppose I'm making up for lost time considering how much I'm in love with this game now and can't wait for it to launch already. The latest story trailer shows just some of the people who want to kill you.
I got to play Far Cry 4 at Gamescom, and I was rather impressed with it. I wasn’t all that blown away at first; it seemed like more of the same – but after some quiet reflection, I realised there was more to it. There’s a far broader range of skills and tools at your disposal, suited to pathed playing – what it just needs now, is to ensure it tells a compelling and interesting story.
We all knew that Dark Souls was going to be a dark game - it says so in the name. From Software is now bringing us Bloodborne and you can see the section of the game that they showed off at Gamescom. Prepare to lose some of your own hope and humanity.
Metal Gear Solid has a, well, weird showing at Gamescom. Hideo Kojima focused on some of the new things you can do with the famous cardboard box, horse poop and extracting helicopters into other helicopters. Sadly, he didn't show off probably the most interesting part of The Phantom Pain.
Destiny might not have as many planets as, say, No Man's Sky, but that doesn't mean much if the planets themselves are large, detailed and fun to explore. We've seen Earth, a little bit of Mars and now Bungie has released the first look at a lush, tropical Venus.
