Should Violent Video Games Be Banned?

In life, it’s common to come across people to whom certain statements should just never be made. You wouldn’t go into a church and start quoting Richard Dawkins or go to Paris and claim that cheese is a bit overrated. In the same vein, it would not be wise to walk into a room of gamers and pose the question that I asked in the title of this article, and yet here I am doing exactly that because reg...

Choice in Games, and The Wolf Among Us

Two disclaimers here to start with. First, I know that I am late to the party with The Wolf Among Us, having just finished it, but this feature will be using the game discuss choices in games, so bear with me please. Second, I must say at the outset that I thoroughly enjoyed the game and this is by no means a bashing session. More like using the aspects that I thought were missing somewhat to illu...

We all love gaming on-the-go, and what better way to play games than on those damn smart phones we all look into the entire day. But what if we want the console experience on our iPhones, well, the closest thing to the console experience? Well there are some games out there that could match up to our expectations. Grand Theft Auto San Andreas – iOS/Android Go back to hood in GTA San Andreas as you...

When do bugs break a game?

Bugs, I got bugs in my bed, do I eat them? Raw or well done? Do I trick them? I don’t thing they’re dumb. Do I join them? Whenever I play games that has lots of bugs I have Eddie Vedder’s voice booming in my head reminding me that it isn’t always doom and gloom. Bugs in games seem to be a rather standard thing these days. Something that results in our ridiculous updates and...

Physical Copies May Soon Be A Thing Of The Past

A little while back, it was announced that Batman: Arkham Knight would not have a physical release for the PC version in the UK. To be fair, many people that favour PC gaming tend to buy most of their games on steam and, due to things like the Steam Summer Sale, have a digital library of hundreds of games. Many of these people haven’t bought a physical copy for a few years and are quite happy to m...

Do You Struggle To Connect With Some Games?

  Like most people, I was looking forward to the long weekend. It was a long enough weekend for me to finish at least two games and make great progress with a third. I had planned to play Bayonetta 2, Shadow of Mordor and Dying Light. When Friday arrived, I started playing them, only to realise I wasn’t really feeling them at all. It’s not like I don’t like the games, I do, ...

Mortal Kombat X – Then vs. Now

Mortal Kombat X is upon us (well a week away) and we cannot wait any longer. We are so Mortal Kombat X obsessed that we are using every excuse out there to forget every other game just to write about Mortal Kombat X. So I was thinking to myself; why not take the old Mortal Kombat characters, and see how they weigh up against their new versions? Jax (aka Jackson Briggs) Introduced – Mortal Kombat I...

The ‘spoilt brat gamer’ must now get off the bus

Yesterday I was disappointed when I once again saw that there were people who were upset with the offering on PS Plus. It’s as if some people are completely in denial of our past and the fact that the service offering was not in existence at all a mere 6 years ago. If you’re a youngster, and I’m talking of the ages of up to 10 years old or so, then I can forgive you. For the rest...

Do you play old games on your new console?

Last night Nintendo announced that N64 and DS games will soon be on the Virtual Console on the Wii U. This following the announcement last year of Wii games coming to the VC. Both these announcements were met with great happiness because it meant the library of games playable would be extended. We also have PS One and PS2 games available on the PlayStation consoles (PS3, PS Vita, PSP) at insanely ...

Are Video Games Becoming Too Easy?

Bloodborne hit the shelves last week and it seems that From Software has managed to once again get people clambering for a game that could evoke a violent Hulk-like rage outburst from a pacifist. As a fan of everything that From Software has made since Demon’s Souls, I was chomping at the bit to get my hands on Bloodborne and I must admit, having a couple hundred hours’ worth of playtime across th...

Bloodborne tips and how to work those darn Chalice Dungeons

From Software’s latest PlayStation 4 exclusive, Bloodborne, proves that exclusives matter, and so do good games. Running on the 25-hour mark, Bloodborne has had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. Sure it is tough, well, every second of the game is tough. From facing off against a naked troll, that rolls over you and flattens you, to holding the controller firmly when speaking to the doll i...

The time has come: Remastered games must now die a miserable death.

It’s no secret that I’m not really much of a remastered games fan. Yes, I enjoyed Saints Row IV: Re-elected as I, like a several other players, were one of those who never played it in the last generation. You see, that’s the big ‘hook, line and sinker’ that they reel you in with. OH BUT WAIT, THERE’S MOAR! You see, they add in all the DLC. The content that woul...
