Burning Question: What makes a video game great?

A lot of people might consider 2016 to be a bit of let down, but that is definitely not the case when it comes to that number of excellent video games that released this year. Hell, just scrolling down the list on our poll this week will make a wireless mouse’s battery shudder. Recently I noticed that some games should be fun, but ultimately ended up falling short. it came to my attention th...

Video Review: Steep (PS4)

It has been many years since we have had a good snowboarding game. I still remember playing the Coolboarders series to death when I was a kid and there really hasn’t been a game to come close to its fun factor for decades. [Ed – Now, now Dave… let’s not get carried away: SSX] Well Ubisoft are hoping to change all that with their brand new IP Steep. Steep was Ubisoft’s...

Review: Steep (PS4)

The wait for a decent Extreme Mountain sports game has been a long one, but is Steep worth the wait or is it an uphill battle?

Game releases in December – With some predictions!

I’m going to be real with you, dear reader, this is going to be a short post. November has left us breathless, exhausted and poor with the absolute onslaught of games that we were barraged with. It’s the month of December, supermarkets are in full Christmas mode and you’re probably going to have an awkward lunch with your family at one point. It’s also the time for relaxati...

Hands-on: Steep – closed beta (Xbox One)

Steep is not SSX. It’s also not Amped, Coolboarders, 1080 Snowboarding or any other snowboarding game you’ve played before. It’s Ubisoft’s very unique take on the genre that places the focus on the realism of the sport. The real question is – is it any fun? The Steep closed beta was much bigger than I anticipated. In the full game you’re invited to challenge several mountain peaks that have been d...

Break out the beanies because a Steep open beta is coming

It’s been a long time since we have had a good snowboarding game that could rival the likes of the Cool Boarders and the SSX Tricky games. It looks like Steep has the potential to be something big when it comes to snow and extreme sports, especially since you can not only snowboard but you can also take part in a host of other activities that most of us wouldn’t dare to attempt in real...

Steep and GoPro – Made for each other!

So yesterday we had a trailer for the PS4 Beta launch of SNOW, and now there is a video for the rival game, Steep. All things considered Steep is looking by far the better game, but it will come at a much higher price (higher than free anyway) and that should therefore be expected. Still, if Ubisoft manages to get the community aspect of Steep right we should be in for a good time on the snowy mou...

Get a detailed look at Steep in this gameplay video

Steep was announced at the Ubisoft conference at E3 earlier this year and since then we’ve not seen quite as much gameplay footage as we would like to see. Gamescom has come and gone too, and with influencers all over the show we saw more ‘open mouth’ header images than games. Thankfully there were some who cared enough to make a recording that’s now available on the PlaySt...

Gamescom: Steep launches on 2 December

Dying for your next SSX fix? Steep is as close as you’ll get to that in this generation, and we have some great news for you! Steep will be launching on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on 2 December this year. That’s right, they’re launching it a few days after Final Fantasy XV and just ahead of South Park: The Fractured But Whole. Are the these publishers not learning? *mumbles* Of course ...

E3 2016 Conference: Ubisoft

Ubisoft, or shall we say Oobisoft, is back with a bang. You know it’s a Ubisoft event when some random people dressed in all sorts of outfits appear on the stage start dancing to Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Know. The energetic and entertaining opening of Ubisoft’s Showcase was actually a small demo of sorts for the new Just Dance 2017. The new game in the franchise will release i...
