Thomas Mulrooney

Thomas has been gaming on all sorts of platforms since the early 90's and getting more 'game overs' than he can remember. These days you can mostly find him enjoying his hobby through the PS4, but he's partial to PC and mobile games too.

Steel Rats review

If deadly robots invaded the world and my only option was to jump on a motorbike to fight back and survive, I’d probably be dead within 5 minutes. But it wouldn’t be the robots that killed me, it would be the bike. I imagine that my first ride on a motorbike would go the same way as Jay on The Inbetweeners when he ends up crashing straight into a wall. Thankfully, the motorbike gang in Steel Rats ...

Fire Pro Wrestling World review

I should probably get this out of the way. I’m not really a wrestling fan and you’ll never catch me sitting down to watch it. You’re probably wondering what someone who isn’t a wrestling fan is doing writing a review of a wrestling game. You’re probably also wondering why I would even want to play it in the first place. You’d be right to ask these questions, and you’d probably be right if you deci...

PSN name changes are finally coming – with a catch

It feels like we’ve been talking about PSN name changes for decades longer than PSN has actually been around. It’s been the number one feature requested by PSN users for years, especially by those with embarrassing names from their younger PS3 days such as XxKilLiNYaAgAiNxX. But, finally, Sony have now made it official that you’ll be able to change your PSN name soon. There are a few caveats to th...

Fortnite is earning a fortune on iOS, and Epic is giving some of it back to Creators

Epic’s cash-cow Fortnite seems like it’s never going to stop printing money if the latest figures are anything to go by. Since it’s release as a beta on iOS back in March, Fortnite has brought in $300 million (around £228.6 million) just on iOS alone, according to data from Sensor Tower. 65% of this income came from US residents, with an estimate of $20 million earned in the week following the beg...

Pokemon Reshiram and Zekrom coming to Pokemon Sun and Moon

Who doesn’t like more Pokemon? Probably those who don’t really care about Pokemon, but if that was you then you wouldn’t be reading this, would you? In any case, two legends will be coming to Pokemon Sun and Moon and Ultra Sun and Moon on October 5th. Players will be able to download either Reshiram or Zekrom, who hail from the games Unova region. Whichever you want is down to the game you own but...

Activision Blizzard won’t be supporting PS4 cross-play yet, but aren’t ruling it out

With Sony finally bowing to pressure with their announcement of a cross-play test via Fortnite, lots of people are crying out for other games to feature cross-play too. Bethesda has, sadly, already come out to say that Fallout 76 won’t support cross-play (the publisher’s global communications head Pete Hines said he has “no idea if it ever will”), but what about other publishers and developers? Ac...

Troy Baker’s Death Stranding character revealed in new TGS 2018 gameplay trailer

Although we’re still none the wiser about what’s actually going on in Death Stranding, Hideo Kojima has at least given us some more footage to mull over. Kojima was taking part in a developer panel at TGS 2018 and decided to show a new gameplay clip to fans. It introduces everyone’s favourite voice actor Troy Baker’s character for the first time. Baker will be playing the Man in the Golden Mask, w...

Bandai Namco has announced that they’ll be carrying out a network test of the games online versus mode for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game. Just jump online from 4pm UK time on 28th September and you’ll be able to try out the...

PS4 to get Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 content first

In a move that serves to do little more than annoy players on other platforms, Activision and Sony have announced details of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 content exclusivity deal for PS4. This is nothing new, particularly when it comes to the Call of Duty franchise, but it’s always disappointing when you don’t own the platform that has exclusive content. Do companies expect players to go out and ...

Fortnite Season 6 delayed, but Epic gives players a bonus

If you’re looking forward to all the new challenges and unlocks that will come with Fortnite Season 6 then we have some bad news. Epic Games has announced that the new season won’t start until Thursday, September 27, despite in-game messages suggesting that the season was due to start on Tuesday 25. With the delay only being a couple of days, it’s not much to get worked up about. Plus, Epic is mak...

Bad North review

Real-time strategy games always look extremely attractive to me on paper. I love the feeling of commanding thousands of troops and looking on from above as they clash with an enemy army in a spray of blood and guts. As thrilling as all this is, commanding thousands of troops with different abilities across changing environments can be a complicated endeavour. You’ve got to have a good tactical hea...

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout map revealed

Call of Duty has never been known for massive maps, with the Battlefield series more known for its large play areas, but that’s about to change with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – at least in the games new Blackout mode. Blackout, Call of Duty’s entry into the Battle Royale craze, will feature the largest map ever included in a Call of Duty game. It’s a good job that the map is so big, as 80 players ...
