Exclusive

Stormlands, the cancelled Xbox One exclusive RPG by Obsidian, gets some context

Obsidian was making a very ambitious and innovative Xbox One exclusive, but it unfortunately never saw the light of day.

Opinion: The generation of a multiplayer-only graveyard

Multiplayer has never been my forte. I usually see it an optional extra with my singleplayer game that I maybe check out once and never play again. Of course, multiplayer is an essential component in the gaming ecosystem and it’s the marquee reason to game for a grand majority of people. During the earlier days of the previous generation, multiplayer did not have such a strong focus as it do...

Opinion: No Man’s Sky defines a generation

Take your mind back to 2013, when the announcement trailer for No Man’s Sky dropped. We were stunned by the ambitious game with its quadrillions of planets, the endless possibilities and the sense of child-like wonder that comes with exploration. It was also surprising to see that the game was being made by a small team of indie developers called Hello Games. The game became a media darling ...

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...

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” ...

Video Exclusive: Battlefield 1 Interview

For those of you that watched the world premier of Battlefield 1 last night you will know that the rumours about the game going back to WW1 were all true. I was worried that WW1 would be a bit too slow-paced since all the weapons and vehicles were much slower than their modern counterparts, but how wrong was I? After the presentation was over I got to sit down with the games Design Director –...

Review: Ratchet and Clank (PS4)

The return of Ratchet and Clank is more glorious than you could have imagined.

More Hellblade footage? Yes PLEASE!

I will be totally honest (as I always am, honestly), I am a massive Ninja Theory fan. It’s something about the worlds that they create for their games to take place in that just really strikes home. Throw in their, always powerful, characters and there’s a winning formula at the forefront of what they offer. I will admit that in games like Heavenly Sword and Enslaved the combat wasn...

Nioh from Team Ninja Looks Brutal

Easily one of the most difficult games I have ever played is Team Ninja’s Ninja Gaiden Black. I know that since then the Souls games have taken over the formula but in my mind Ninja Gaiden was the game that started the brutal try, try and try again formula. Team Ninja have been very quiet for the last little while up until they revealed some footage about Nioh last year at TGS. We haven̵...

Rumour: Beyond Good and Evil 2 might be heading exclusively to the next Nintendo console

Look back at the short history of the current Nintendo console, the Wii U, and it’s very hard to overlook Bayonetta 2. To this day it’s still exclusive and will remain so as Nintendo published and help resurrect the title. Next in line? Beyond Good and Evil 2 if reports can be believed. A source with a very trustworthy record, Alexander Maier, provided Destructoid with a document that ...

Some Star Fox Zero gameplay for your Monday

Despite Dawid trying to convince me that Star Fox Zero looks terrible (he might be right, but a bit of ignorance helps right?) I am still pretty excited for the game which is now releasing early next year. It has Platinum Games involved and that is usually a good thing. I can only think that the delay was for the best, maybe they realised it was not up to scratch and they decided to give it a bit ...

Gamers Den – Best Exclusives so far in this generation

It’s Friday, which means that it’s time for the Gamers Den! In this recording we actually had a tough time coming up with exclusives we thought was best. Oh, and remastered games don’t count (so that’s half the games missing on PS4 and Xbox One), but we found some gems. Garth had no issue finding an exclusive on Nintendo’s platform… because it’s just about...
