Relive your teenage years with Call of Duty 2 on Xbox One backwards compatibility

Well, some of you would have been teenagers when Call of Duty 2 graced the market. I remember the game being one of my first FPS experiences on the Xbox 360. While the graphics are crude today, they were remarkable to an impressionable young adolescent who just learned the power of his right hand. It was a great game and one that you can even draw some inspiration from today. It was simple, but it...

Fez received its last update, 4 years after release

Fez is a tragic bittersweet triumph. If that sentence confuses you, then I’ve done my job well. Fez has been a conundrum of a game. It was announced way back in 2007, won an indie award and became a media darling, took 5 years to develop and when it finally released, it was really good. Possibly one of the best modern platformers of the last decade. Within all of this and after the release o...

Gamescom: Experience some more Wang in this Shadow Warrior 2 gameplay

The reimagining of Shadow Warrior in 2013 was a gentle reminder to how awesome and fun first-person shooters were in the old days. They were fast, frantic and didn’t take themselves to seriously. Shadow Warrior had its own silly style of absurdist humour and still had all the mechanics of an old school first-person shooter. People loved it so much that they decided to make a sequel for the g...

The Art of Gaming: Graphics – Magical Pixels

Show me one person who does not like pretty things. While beauty is still very much subjective, we are still enamoured by visually appealing things. Besides being a precious metal, gold is so sought after simply because it looks pretty and shiny. We decorate our homes with posters, paintings and carpets of various colours. Companies design their packaging to be as visually appealing as possible be...

Gamescom: Titanfall 2 will be targeting 60 FPS on all platforms

First person shooters are very dependent on framerates for their enjoyment. Hell, frames per second and first person shooter both have the same acronym. Coincidence? I think not.  When playing a shooter game in 30 fps, you always feel like it’s a bit sluggish and unresponsive. While still functional, it is still advantageous to have the largest FPS possible. This is especially important in m...

Video: Here’s a nice graphics comparison of the BioShock Collection and the original

BioShock is one of the most loved franchises out there. Irrational Games have truly made some masterworks, starting with the very ambitious original BioShock and then making something magical with BioShock Infinite. Many, including myself, were hoping for a remaster of the series just to relive it all on current generation hardware. Our wishes were answered with the BioShock Collection. The collec...

Gamescom: Gears of War 4 receives a gameplay trailer in glorious 4K

First off, if you can watch a 4K video on YouTube on a 4K monitor in this country, then can you please come down from your mansion and maybe give some money to the impoverished or to me to buy No Man’s Sky. Gears of War 4 is the long awaited instalment of the Gears of War franchise for the current generation. However, it’s also going to be on PC thanks to Microsoft’s new Xbox Any...

I’ve played way too much Guitar Hero

I’m what you would call an obsessive gamer. Since I’ve had a lot of free time as a youngster and no real social life to speak of, I’ve played a lot of games. Since I was an achievement “hunter” as well, I played the living hell out every game I could get my oily little hands on. This series is a counter to Jarred’s frankly blasphemous “Honesty Hour” ...

The Art of Gaming: Narrative – Imaginary tales

Stories, fables, tales, legends, myths. Throughout humankind, we’ve had a fascination with telling stories. As a social experience, as an educational endeavour or just to entertain ourselves. The world is made up of little stories both real and fictional. There’s a story in the blockbuster you watched with your significant other, but there’s also a story in the clerk that served ...

Rage and The Evil Within can maybe get sequels, but not likely

Rage and The Evil Within were some of the more flawed offerings that Bethesda released. While not being terrible games at all, they were somewhat lacking in their own ways. The Evil Within left a lot to be desired with regards to its quality and story. Rage was a fantastic shooter with some really innovative AI, but the actual gameplay became pretty stale after a while and the world just wasn̵...

Rumour: Telltale might be involved with something relating to Mr. Robot

Mr. Robot is one of those shows that you cannot afford to not at least give a shot. It is so beautifully shot, paced and filled with tension that you cannot tear yourself away from it. For those of you unfamiliar with the show, it’s about hackers trying to change the world and you follow a man named Elliott through his “adventures” through this world. It’s not one of those ...

2K still has faith in Battleborn

Battleborn was a bit of a modern day gaming tragedy. It was an amazing game at its core, filled with content, interesting characters and charm coming out of everywhere. But the game just wasn’t fun. It was vastly overshadowed by Blizzard’s Overwatch in terms of gameplay, even if it was the game that boasted the most content and bang for your buck. Things for Battleborn were looking rea...
