Trials Rising – Engine in perfect nick, body could use a bit of work

The Trials series from developer RedLynx has been around in one form or another since 2000, though many players will have had their first exposure to the game with 2008’s Trials HD on the Xbox 360. The premise of the game hasn’t changed much in the eleven year’s since that game and 2019’s Trials Rising. You’re still on a motorcycle and you still need to use delicate t...[Read More]

Far Cry: New Dawn – Trying to build a better world

There's a shorter tale and lighter character development than we're used to from the series, but there's nonetheless great fun to be had from causing mayhem.

Kingdom Hearts 3 – Hope you’ve been paying attention, we’re off on an adventure

We really wanted to fall absolutely head-over-heels in love with Kingdom Hearts 3, the culmination of several games in the Kingdom Hearts series that started in 2002 on the PlayStation 2. Seventeen years is a long time to be telling a single story and if that story is the domain of Square Enix (the folks responsible for the very complicated Final Fantasy universe), almost two decades on a tale...?...[Read More]

The Division 2 Private Beta – Wandering Washington at the end of the world

Stuff had a chance to muck around in the squad-based shooter's Private Beta over the weekend and this is the information we managed to salvage. Not a fan of long-form reading? The basic notes point to one thing: The Division 2 should be on your radar.

A few short and manic hours with Far Cry: New Dawn

We recently got a chance to go hands-on with Far Cry: New Dawn, the newest ‘in-between’ release dividing the numbered Far Cry games. After Far Cry 3 we got the neon Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, after Far Cry 4 we got Far Cry Primal and after Far Cry 5 we have Far Cry: New Dawn. What’s strange about this one is that it’s a more-or-less direct sequel to Far Cry 5, rather than bei...[Read More]

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown – More than one way to cook a Goose

It feels as though it’s been a long time since a decent flight game was available on consoles. It’s been a long time since Ace Combat: Horizon and even longer since Ace Combat 6 (way back in 2007 on the Xbox 360). We don’t talk about that free-to-play thing, Ace Combat Infinity. The only similar games in the meantime seem to have been the Tom Clancy’s HAWX series which, whi...[Read More]

PDP Afterglow Lvl 3 gaming headset (PS4) – Something for (almost) nothing

There are a few things that you cannot do without when gaming online — a decent internet connection, somewhere comfy to sit and a headset that you can use for hours on end without discomfort. The first one of these is non-negotiable, unless you’re okay with the sort of ping that sees opponents teleporting like Dragon Ball Z combatants after three weeks of powering up. Most homes have a...[Read More]

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – Have spear, will travel

Assassin’s Creed has been around for eleven years now and Ubisoft are, technically, still telling the same story. They’re just finding different ways of doing it. From Assassin’s Creed in 2007 to Assassin’s Creed III in 2012 the company used Subject 17, Desmond Miles, to link their historical assassination epics together, moving over to unnamed present-day protagonists (inc...[Read More]

Sony caves – You’ll soon be able to play cross-platform Fortnite with all your friends

Sony is finally enabling cross-play for Fortnite today. Yup. Really. The PlayStation 4 manufacturer previously blocked cross-play and progression between PS4 and Nintendo Switch and Xbox One for massively popular battle royale game, Fortnite. People were angry — like real angry — because you couldn’t link a Epic Games account that’s previously been linked to a PS4, to a Nintendo Switch...[Read More]

Shadow of the Tomb Raider – The end of the beginning is just the starting point

Sometimes, when you get to the end of a long journey, it almost feels like a shame for it to end. That’s sort of the feeling we got from Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the final part of the Lara Croft origin trilogy series that started way back in 2013. It’s been a long five years, in more ways than just game release time, but we’re finally at the end of Lara’s beginning. Is th...[Read More]

The best games of E3 2018

The Electronic Entertainment Expo – or E3 for short – is the world’s biggest gaming show and in what feels like the blink of an eye it’s all over for 2018. Each year’s event shows us all the huge games we’ll be playing in the future, or right now… Eager to see which games we’ll be lusting after later this year and beyond and which one’s we’re playing...[Read More]

Dark Souls Remastered – Prepare to continue to die. Again.

Come on if you think you’re hard enough. That’s the refrain sung by Dark Souls, From Software’s toughest entry in the Souls trilogy. The Dark Souls Remastered edition does nothing to alleviate the pain, opting instead to upgrade visual fidelity and multiplayer functionality while retaining the soul-crushing (but still rewarding) difficulty. But seriously, screw Orstein and Smough. The premise of D...[Read More]
