Sonic Colors: Ultimate Preview – Another Run At Glory

When it launched in 2010, Sonic Colors was considered one of the best Sonic the Hedgehog games in years.

Battlefield 2042’s new mode is the opposite of esports, and that rules

Battlefield Portal is a new game mode in Battlefield 2042 that lets players mash up their favorite Battlefield time periods into a single game. An army of World War II soldiers against a handful of 2042 grunts; one tank against 100 tiny robots. It’s very … FPS by way of Looney Tunes. Seemingly taking inspiration […]

It took me two years and 300 hours to beat Sekiro

I don’t consider myself a gamer — I’m just someone who quite likes playing video games. Apart from a Game Boy in the 1990s, the first console I owned was a Nintendo Switch that I bought in early 2018 to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I finally got around to buying […]

Call of Duty Modern Warfare Review: A fun reboot obsessed with the grim & nasty

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's campaign launches with the gut-punch of a suicide bomber striding out into the middle of Piccadilly Circus, an area I used to travel through every day. It's a grim opening that clearly communicates what Activision has been trying to market: a gritty technothriller that presents an unflinching look at warfare […]

Cyberpunk 2077 is a dark action game straight out of the Blade Runner movies

Playing Cyberpunk for the first time is like stepping into an even more brutal version of Blade Runner. It’s got that futuristic oppressive darkness of the classic movie but even more death and destruction. And it’s very good. CD Projekt Red have come up trumps again with a sprawling role-play game set in Night City […]
