The upcoming Marvel’s Avengers game from Square Enix would make Thanos quiver

One of the most anticipated games at this year’s E3 conference was the secret ‘Project Avengers’ developed by Square Enix.

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]

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]

Hands-on with Shadow of the Tomb Raider at Comic Con Africa

There is plenty to see and do at this year’s Comic Con Africa expo being held at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit and International Convention Centre — most of it involving spending copious amounts of money on geeky things — but we also spent far too much time hanging around the video game demo areas. That is, in addition to checking out the amazing work in Artist’s Alley, th...[Read More]

Final Fantasy XV – Road to victory, or driven to distraction?

Ten years in the making, the fifteenth (but not really) Final Fantasy is one of the strangest games we’ve played for a while – but that’s no bad thing. When you sit back and think about Final Fantasy XV, a mixture of emotions wash over you. As a fan, there’s relief that it actually exists and you can play it. But how it got made at all, and how it ended up in the state it shipped in, is fasc...[Read More]

Celebrate 20 years of Lara Croft with the PS4 Rise of the Tomb Raider trailer

Timed exclusives are a funny thing. Take Rise of the Tomb Raider, which debuted last year on the Xbox One as an exclusive. The PlayStation 4 release was delayed as a result but… But for those who have waited, the PlayStation 4 version of Rise of the Tomb Raider looks to be the one to get. If the 20 Year Celebration trailer (yup, Lara Croft is 20 years old) is anything to go by, Sony console ...[Read More]

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – Serious sci-fi storytelling, played the way you want

Do you like to do things by the book, or prefer to go rogue? Kick down the door, shoot first and ask questions later, or sneak in and get out without anyone knowing you were even there? Deus Ex has always let you pick how to play, and Mankind Divided is no different. Unless you’re not a fan of trenchcoats. It’s the only style Adam Jenson knows how to pull off. The moody man-machine is back crackin...[Read More]

Hitman changes its target, becoming a fully episodic game

It’s a time of change for Square Enix’s Hitman franchise, which is making the move from a full, upfront release to a digital, semi-episodic approach. Rather, make that fully episodic, as the upcoming game just switched gears again. Instead of releasing a sizeable starter pack and then adding free content to it over time, Square Enix and developer IO Interactive will instead parcel out ...[Read More]

Rise of the Tomb Raider will appear on PS4 and PC – next year

Microsoft didn’t make too many friends when it was announced that Rise of the Tomb Raider, the sequel to the 2013 reboot would be an exclusive release on the Xbox One, something that didn’t alter much when it came out that the ‘exclusive’ portion of that announcement was lacking the word ‘timed’. Still, if you’re a PC or PlayStation 4 gamer then you’...[Read More]

Here’s Stuff‘s pick of what to watch out for from the deluge of announcements that spewed out of Los Angeles last week – A solid ten reasons to get yourself a new games console in the next few months.

This is the Square Enix tech demo for DirectX 12 and Windows 10 at BUILD 2015

Yeah, it’s time to pack up that whole ‘Who’s got the better gaming platform’ and go home. The PC has won, again. Not that there was every any doubt that the PC has the potential for the greatest performance on the visual front, it’s been the front-runner pretty much… forever. But Microsoft and game developer/publisher Square Enix have moved the bar out of range ...[Read More]

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided announced for Xbox One, PS4, and PC

Square Enix attempted to use a Twitch livestream to tease the announcement of a new Deus Ex game yesterday, but an unplanned leak killed the surprise. Still, that doesn’t make the news any less exciting for fans of the choice-centric action series. Gaming magazine Game Informer has confirmed the news with the revelation of its next cover. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is a direct sequel to 2011’s excel...[Read More]
