Genre: Open-World Action Adventure | Developer: Ubisoft | Publisher: Ubisoft Platform: Xbox 360/PlayStation 3/Wii U/PC | Players: 1 Local/8 Online Rating: ESRB: M (Mature) / PEGI: 18 Recently, the Assassin’s Creed formula, tried and tested as it is, has begun to wear thin, beaten into the ground with an iterative yearly formula that many feel has become stale. Is a new location and a new time-span enough to reinvigorate the [...]

Genre: Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game | Developer: BioWare Publisher: Electronic Arts/LucasArts | Platform: PC | Players: BAJILLION | Rating: T (Teen) I’ve had a mostly enjoyable ride from 1-50. It’s been filled with lightsabers and force-projected rocks and my sage doing some of the most un-sage-like things imaginable. Informing your troop-mate’s family that he was killed via a spin-kick to the face by a healer has to suck. That [...]

About a month ago, I wrote a rundown on all Saints Row: The Third DLC up to that point. A month on, a fair bit more DLC has arrived, and I think it’s worth taking a look at the new additions. Will the selection be better than last time? I hope so.

Genre: Action/Adventure | Developer: Ubisoft Montreal | Publisher: Ubisoft Platform: Xbox 360/PlayStation 3/PC | Players: 1 Local/16 Online | Rating: M (Mature) Ubisoft Montreal is listed as the developer on most official literature for Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, though the game in truth was developed by a much larger crew, with Ubisoft Annecy, Massive, Quebec, Singapore and Bucharest all credited with having contributed to the game – meaning a hell of [...]

Genre: Tower Defense/Action RPG | Developer: Trendy Entertainment Publisher: Reverb Communications | Platform: Xbox 360/PlayStation 3/PC Players: 1-4 Local/Online | Rating: E10+ (Everyone 10 and Up) A long time ago in a land far, far away, some bad guy did something bad, as bad guys tend to do. Four nicely distinctive heroes saved the day and disappeared, as heroes should have more sense than to do. More time passed, and [...]

There’s something about RC car racing games that I just love. Maybe it’s my childhood memories of always getting RC cars for birthdays. Either way, here’s a a rare gem from the year 2000 for PC, Dreamcast and PlayStation 2. This is Stunt GP created by Team 7!

Genre: Shooter | Developer: id Software | Publisher: Bethesda Platform: Xbox 360/PlayStation 3/PC | Players: 1-2 | Rating: M (Mature) After a great many years in the making, Rage has quite a bit to prove. The team at id software have been quietly working away to make this massive title – so large it spans multiple discs on Xbox 360 – and it shows in the size of the world [...]

2K Games, publishers of the (very) long-awaited Duke Nukem Forever, have fired their PR firm, The Redner Group, after Redner tweeted the following message: #AlwaysBetOnDuke too many went too far with their reviews…we r reviewing who gets games next time and who doesn’t based on today’s venom While this type of behavior – withholding review products based on how a reviewer responds to said product – is not new, it’s [...]

Genre: Class-Based Shooter | Developer: Splash Damage | Publisher: Bethesda Platform: Xbox 360/PlayStation 3/PC | Players: 16 Online | Rating: T (Teen) “It’s a class-based online shooter.” Oh. That’s easy enough to explain. That’s Brink in a nutshell – or is it? Brink is a confused and sometimes confusing game that tries to be a lot of things and is hugely, brilliantly successful in some areas but not so successful [...]
