Call of Duty: Black Ops III ditches the campaign for Xbox 360 and PS3

We’re nearly two years out from the release of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and while Activision has made it clear that those consoles (and PC) are powering the future of Call of Duty, the series hasn’t abandoned its last-gen fans. However, with this year’s Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Activision will abandon the single-player campaign for those players. The news was announced...[Read More]

Call of Duty: Black Ops III will hit Xbox 360, PS3 as well as next-gen

The majority of game publishers and developers are focusing their efforts on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, taking advantage of the improved processing power of the new consoles. It’s been a worry that one of gaming’s largest franchises, Call of Duty, would be taking the same tack but that is not the case. Publisher Activision have announced that the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 3...[Read More]

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor (PlayStation 3) – A broken epic

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor released a while back for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and all was right in the land. We had a fantastic game that provided action, story and some brilliant combat. But the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game were delayed. And we were a bit worried about that. As it turns out, we were right to be worried. So let’s lay it out right now, the vis...[Read More]

Assassin’s Creed fans without Xbox One, PS4 will still get their yearly fix with AC: Rogue

Massive fan of Ubisoft’s prolific Assassin’s Creed series? Then hopefully you haven’t sold your PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 to make way for the newer consoles, as the French company has detailed a second Assassin’s Creed that will release this year just for that hardware.

LittleBigPlanet 3 confirmed for PS3

[youtube url=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymCDdrMKPrY”] Cutesy (but awesome) game-creation tool and general platform game LittleBigPlanet‘s third instalment was announced at this year’s E3 conference in Los Angeles but, at the time, it was only confirmed for the PlayStation 4.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle – This will make sense… eventually

Talk about strange… If you’re unfamiliar with the anime and manga series JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure then you’re about to receive quite an education. This fighting game is based on the anime/manga of the same name and features: English nobility battling vampires (thanks to a certain stone mask), flamboyant combatants circa World War 2 but with added ancient Egyptians, a collec...[Read More]

Don Bradman Cricket 14 – Okay, we’re stumped

Hey, you know what we haven’t seen in… just about forever (we’re talking technology years here)? An actual playable cricket game and we’re not referring to the dreadful Ashes Cricket 2013, which release last year and which we’re never going to speak of again. It never happened, okay? Good. Moving on. South Africa sports fans might take this a little hard but we owe th...[Read More]

Toyota’s Sports Drive Logger will put drivers into Gran Turismo 6

Before anyone gets too excited, bear in mind that Toyota’s latest piece of driving tech has a series of limitations that puts it out of the reach of most drivers around the world. Currently set to become available in Japan but with a broader release planned, Toyota has revealed an in-car device called the Sports Drive Logger. What it does is track the “…GPS data, accelerator peda...[Read More]

Dark Souls II – The definition of insanity

How much pain and torment are you willing to endure in order to reach your goal? That’s the question that Dark Souls II asks. Like its predecessors Dark Souls and Demon’s Souls,  Dark Souls II plops players into the middle of a fantasy world populated with some of the deadliest enemies in video games today and expects them to figure it out for themselves. The concept of Dark Souls II h...[Read More]

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 – Fighting as Esko… wait… the Prince of Darkness

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is one of those games that should start with a questionnaire asking whether players have gotten around to finishing the first game in the series. That is because players will have the ultimate fate of the protagonist of the previous game, Gabriel Belmont, spoiled immediately upon starting up Lords of Shadows 2. If you are one of those people who just never finished t...[Read More]

South Park: The Stick of Truth – Friendly faces everywhere

Have you ever wanted to visit South Park? Perhaps rummage through their drawers and fridges, poking around in their cupboards and looking for interesting articles of the quiet little mountain town’s long and storied history? Your time has come. Historically, South Park games have tended to be absolutely awful attempts at recreating the world spawned from the minds of Trey Parker and Matt Sto...[Read More]

PlayStation Now streamed to TV – You’ll need a DualShock 3 for that

Sony’s Gaikai-based PlayStation Now game streaming service will be bringing console games to the PlayStation 4 as well as several smart TVs and mobile devices. Playing games without the need for a console is always an interesting thought but how that can be achieved is something else. Sony has explained how users will have to interact with something like a smart TV in order to get their game...[Read More]
