Valve have today introduced a fascinating new feature that allows creators to sell their game mods via the Steam Workshop. They can even create bundles and offer discounts, or just offer up their work for free. The very first game to offer up paid mods is none other […]
Releasing on September 1st the prospect of the forthcoming Mad Max game has been…divisive. The potential is certainly there, but many people were wondering if Avalanche Studios, most famous for the Just Cause games, could pull it off. Well, the new gameplay trailer seems to indicate that they […]

The existence of Total War: Warhammer has been a poorly kept secret for some time now. It seems that SEGA and Creative Assembly have come to this very same conclusion, officially announcing the game while admitting in the press release that the announcement has come a bit earlier […]
The Mortal Kombat franchise may have gone veering wildly into the Woods of Crappiness for a while there but Netherealm finally brought the fighter back onto the right path with Mortal Kombat 9, a blisteringly fun game that I utterly adored. It wasn’t the most technically challenging fighter, hence it not really appearing much on the tournament scene, but I’d take it over the Street Fighter series any day of the week, favoring the quicker pace, brutal combat and Netherealms commitment to never taking itself too seriously. Now Mortal Kombat X is here and while it doesn’t do anything truly new to reinvigorate the genre it does improve on its predecessor in many ways while retaining everything that has ever made the series legendary.

I wasn’t exactly very impressed with Battlefield: Hardline’s singleplayer campaign. The first half was interesting, focusing on relatively down-to-Earth cop-based action, but the second half completely went off the rails, attempting to emulate Call of Duty by somehow fitting in a tank, a bloody stupid elevator scene and […]
Guess what? Yup it’s that time of the year again as Activision have released a teaser trailer for what is very clearly Call of Duty: Black Ops III, unless they pull some kind of very rude bait and switch. The voicework of the trailer, and the fact that […]
Do you like to read? If the answer is no then you should seriously consider abandoning this review now, not because of my jumbled writings, although that would be a valid reason in itself, but because Pillars of Eternity is a lore-heavy RPG that pays homage to the classics such as Baldurs Gate, cherry picking everything great about grand adventures to craft one of the deepest role-playing experiences around. It’s not for everyone, though: it’s not an exciting game in the traditional sense, the presentation of the game used to tell a compelling story set in an equally compelling world where reading vast amounts of text is required just for the primary story. If you want to tackle everything, be prepared to read enough combined wordage to make George R. R. Martin take a step back and seriously consider what he’s doing. If that doesn’t sound very interesting just stop reading here. Maybe fire up Call of Duty and shoot some people or something.
