New Far Cry title to be revealed

Oh Ubisoft you do like to tease us, but thankfully we aren’t being teased with a potential new Far Cry game (or might it be DLC?) for long. At the Games Awards, which will air at 1:30 am GMT on Friday December 7th, Ubisoft will reveal more details on what is next for the series. In the mean time check out this trailer, which kick things off with a nuclear bang…

NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 review

If Basketball games are all too serious for your liking, then NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 is certainly worth a look. The 2 on 2 basketball action is more akin to the simplified action of NBA Jam and comes with all manner of antics that would otherwise be illegal during a standard game of Basketball but despite being simple, the game’s biggest crime is a lack of a tutorial. While there are a handful of re...

GRIP: Combat Racing review

GRIP is one rugged beast – and not just in its looks – the vehicles are low to the ground, can traverse multiple surfaces and pick up a multitude of weaponry to take down opponents. What it lacks in grace, it makes up for in brute force. One of my favourite racing titles is the high speed, multiple surface racer, F-Zero, and while GRIP does a great job at hitting the highs I enjoyed with the Blue ...

Transpose review (PSVR)

Set in a Sci-Fi dystopian-esque world, the dimly lit TRON landscapes are all but devoid of human life except for floating light filled torso figures. These echoes are past beings wandering the puzzling world they are stuck in. You play as one of these figures, able to interact with the world before choosing when to reset at an ‘Origin’ entry point and leave your past self as a recording, or start ...

Space Hulk Tactics review

Played from the perspective of either the Space Marines – the Blood Angel Chapter – or a brood of Genestealers, Space Hulk Tactics is a new take on the awesome board game that has received not only numerous tabletop editions, but also several digital versions to satisfy an ever-growing fan base.  Space Hulk Tactics stays true to its tabletop roots rather than going all out FPS – see Space H...

Just Dance 2019 busts its moves onto console today

While many of us wake to adventures in the Wild West, others just want to dance – which is great because Just Dance 2019 is here to add a beat into your day. Packed with forty new tracks it’s not just the current gen consoles that get to party hard, with the game also releasing onto Wii U, Wii and Xbox 360. New to this year’s instalment is a brand new UI, making the game more “ac...

Transpose makes its VR debut on November 6

Set for a November 6 release on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR, Transpose is poised to offer up some tricky VR puzzles for you to solve – that is if the main mechanic is anything to go. Only by recording your actions to make copies of yourself can you best the 30 ‘room-sized’ puzzles – and if this is realised to its full potential – then Transpose could quite possibly hit hig...

Elite Pro 2 + SuperAmp review

It’s true that we all love and defend our own headset brands of choice, but when I was challenged to drop my go to brand and review Turtle Beach’s Elite Pro headset, I didn’t expect to fall so heavily in love with a new headset. Now I’m set to fall in love all over again… The Elite Pro 2 isn’t just a .5 update; at first glance you may judge it on appearance alone, which hasn’t changed much from th...

Battlefield V gets new cinematic single player trailer

EA have unveiled the official single player trailer for Battlefield V, which releases worldwide November 20. Similar to Battlefield 1, V goes about telling the untold stories of the war – this time the setting is World War 2. The stories mode of the previous title really impressed, sensitively portraying some truly humbling and often chilling stories. The game didn’t glorify the war, but sti...

Why so salty… Rocket League removes map

Psyonix Studios have announced that Salty Shores will be axed from the current map rotation. The change comes after much complaint about the map’s ‘brightness’… seriously? From the quirky little tunes to the relaxing vibe of the visuals, I for one enjoyed zooming about on this beanball-esque environment. Each to their own I guess. Incoming! At 2pm PDT, we are removing Salty Shore...

Shadowgate heads to console this fall

The PC point-and-click adventure, Shadowgate, is being overhauled with a full UI rebuild to make its debut on console this fall. Developed by Abstraction Games, Shadowgate is set within the walls of a ‘living’ castle. The title is classed as a gaming great but only if you are well-versed in the MacVenture series. I’d wager that you won’t have heard of this cult classic, but...
