The nights are getting colder and longer, the weather is getting more inclement, and the games industry moves towards that magical time when all the major releases jostle for position and give gamers something to be excited for. We’re also not far from a new console generation; Mark Cerny gave WIRED an exclusive…

WRC 8 FIA World Rally Championship Review - Rallying Cry

Luckily, we’ve got video games to help us live that fantasy vicariously (because Lord knows you wouldn’t get most…

Remastered and Remade Games for the PS4

There were some awesome video games back in the day. Final Fantasy was killing it back then, and Mega Man was the blue bomber that everyone deserved. Unfortunately, there’s probably a lot of new gamers that never got to experience them. It may have been they couldn’t afford multiple consoles or the games weren’t as popular today as they were…

F1 2019 Review - A Winning Formula

How To Watch Showbox On Your PS4 Or PS3

Sony really has knocked it out of the park when it comes to console gaming. From day one of the original PlayStation’s launch, the company has consistently delivered user-friendly, intuitive, and entertaining gaming experiences. The PS2 was inarguably the console of its generation, and the PS3 continued to iterate on the successes of its predecessor. The PlayStation 4 is another…

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled Review – An N. Dearing Remake

If you were to imagine kart racers as dinosaurs, Mario Kart would be a Tyrannosaurus Rex. This monster franchise has held unimpeachable sway over all it surveys since the release of Super Mario Kart way back in 1992. Groups of slightly drunk friends flock to Mario Kart for its easy controls, pick-up-and-play vibe, and cast of colourful, enchanting characters. Over…

RAGE 2 Review – Still Just A Rat In A Cage

Post-apocalypse is potentially an incredibly rich setting. The world could end in so many delightfully varied ways that to keep returning to the same blasted desert wasteland seems like a missed opportunity. That said, we’ve had countless excellent games and other media that have taken this setting as a jumping-off point. Fallout, Mad Max, Wasteland...there are plenty of ways to…

The Best GTA 5 Cheat Codes On PS4

Remember cheat codes? Back in the days of the NES and SNES, every game had these wonderful, ubiquitous little sequences of button inputs.

Days Gone Review – Thank You For The Days

Zombies aren’t exactly a new concept. Debatably, the first ever zombie movie was Victor Halperin’s 1932 opus White Zombie, but with 1968’s Night of the Living Dead zombies began to pass into mainstream culture. Since then, we’ve had seminal movies like 28 Days Later and Shaun of the Dead, as well as games like Resident Evil and wonderful books like…

What We Know About The PS5 And Why It Will Dominate 9th Generation Gaming

The 12 Best First-Person Shooter Games On PS4

When the original DOOM was released back in 1993, it caused a real stir in the gaming industry. Developer id Software’s previous game Wolfenstein 3D probably lays claim to being the first true first-person shooter, but DOOM codified many of the tropes we now associate with the genre. That we used to call first-person shooters “DOOM clones” now seems terribly…

Dead Or Alive 6 Review - Wanted Dead Or Alive

As a fighting game franchise, Dead or Alive has been unfairly overlooked across its twenty-three year (!) existence. The series has perhaps been better-known for its reliance on fan service and its attempt to titillate its players than for its extremely solid core mechanics, and while it’s true that developer Team Ninja has probably not done itself any favours in…

Anthem Review - Mech My Day

From Pacific Rim to MechWarrior, pop culture has a justifiable fascination with human-piloted mechs. Japanese anime is replete with mech pilots and their adventures, and although movies rarely tread this hallowed ground it has been done at least once or twice (see Transformers and Real Steel for ancillary examples of the genre at work). Who among us hasn’t at some…

Intruders: Hide and Seek Review - Virtual Insanity

Remember Night Trap? If you don’t, it was an “interactive movie game” released in 1992, back in the Sega CD era. The premise of the game was simple, if not a little problematic: you play as a special agent with access to a bank of cameras watching a house full of young girls. Said girls are in danger from robbers,…
