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

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]

God of War – Kratos and Son: Monster Slayers

When last we saw Kratos he was… running around the Hecatonchires in God of War: Ascension. Chronologically, though, we saw him finally exact his vengeance on his father Zeus at the close of God of War III. It’s been long enough that the Greek pantheon has faded into myth and the Norse gods have risen. Kratos, one-time God of War, is living a simple life in Midgard. He has a family. Or ...[Read More]

Far Cry 5 – Seeding the familiar with a little strange

You know how it goes: You live out in the country, enjoying the quiet life, when suddenly along come a bunch of new folks with their fancy rules and religious practises. The next thing you know all of the spare farmland has been bought up, people are being abducted and brainwashed and they’re getting the locals hooked on weird mind-altering substances. No, it’s not Scientology. Or hipp...[Read More]

Need for Speed: Payback – Ignore the Vegas-style glitz and glamour – the House always wins

Need for Speed already had a lot in common with the Fast and Furious films. They’re both long-running franchises obsessed with driving fast, crazy customisation and OTT action – but this latest entry gets closer than ever to matching the car-based carnage of Dom Toretto and crew. Payback is a story-driven revenge tale, putting your ragtag team of drivers up against the underground gambling c...[Read More]

Gran Turismo Sport – Sony is ever the traditionalist with this one

If Lewis Hamilton is anything to go by, there are three prerequisites for becoming a racing pro: practice, patience and a planet-sized ego. As ever, Gran Turismo Sport goes big on the first two to deliver the latter once you’ve conquered its never-ending plethora of races, time trials and challenges. It’s a decidedly old-fashioned approach to racing in an age where the instant thrills of Fast &...[Read More]
