Gears of War 4 gets the lesser spotted split-screen co-op mode

We all have fond memories of playing games with our mates while being in the same room, using the same console, and the screen for that matter. Whether it was beating each other up in a fighter game, or shooting aliens in the face, it doesn’t matter, it was great fun! Couch Co-Op is however something that has almost gone the way of the Dodo due to online gaming becoming the standard, but it has fo...

Dark Souls III speed runners already clocking it at 90mins

We’re still a whole agonising, torturous week away from diving headlong into the torturous kingdom of Lothric, the setting for Dark Souls III. Yet there’s already people out there that’s clocking it in at less than 90 minutes! That’s shorter than the average summer blockbuster movie! Granted, this is on the Japanese version of the game, which has been out for what feels like an eternity, and...

Shadow of the Beast has a release date

Shadow of the Beast was announced what feels like about a decade ago (in 2013) at Gamescom, but we haven’t heard much about it since then. We did get some juicy gameplay footage at E3 last year, but not much else. The game did however get a release date of 17 May 2016. This was announced on the PS Blog, and some other more technical information has been given as well: [quote]Hi PlayStation Blog re...

The Burning Question: Are we unreasonable towards certain publishers?

There’s an old saying that goes: “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.” This certainly rings true for me, since I’m a trusting idiot that would like to see the good in everything and everyone, and that is especially true with video games, and the companies that produce them. But sometimes, that trust gets broken. One such company for me personally, is Ubisoft. In fact, it’s prob...

The Japanese launch trailer for Dark Souls III will make you very jealous

The Japanese people are indeed very lucky people, since Dark Souls III releases tomorrow in that country. And, as is customary in the industry, a game of this calibre is usually accompanied by an epic-looking launch trailer. The trailer really got me salivating at the mouth, and from what I’ve seen of the game itself, it looks amazing! The fact that I still have to wait a couple more weeks b...

Quantum Break might only be running at 720p on Xbox One

The good folks over at Digital Foundry had the opportunity to put the upcoming Quantum Break by Remedy Entertainment through its paces, and found that the resolution might be a bit… lacking. They tested the first few hours of the game, and found that it might only be running at 720p. That’s 360 pees less than what is expected at 1080p and 180 pees less than what most Xbox One games run at. The gam...

Opinion: What I want and don’t want from Virtual Reality

With Sony finally lifting the veil on pricing and the release date of the PlayStation VR, we now have a pretty clear idea of what to expect from the three main VR players. Sony’s headset is considerably cheaper than those offered by Oculus and HTC. But they did concede that the Rift and Vive are superior products when it comes to high-end quality, although that is not entirely the point of the Pla...

Salt and Sanctuary is a hand-drawn 2D action platformer that is, according to the developer James Silva, inspired by Dark Souls: [quote] Salt and Sanctuary began with a pretty simple idea: how would Dark Souls play if it was reimagi...

Xbox One players will soon have cross-platform support, even possibly with PS4 gamers

When Rocket League was released on PS4 and PC in July last year, it did so to an incredible reception from critics and consumers alike. Xbox players had to sit on the sideline and wait for half a year before they could see what all the ruckus was about. They did however, not get the coolest feature that both PC and PS4 players have been enjoying. That big omission from the Xbox One version of the ...
