5 Things You Can Do in Spider-Man!

If you haven’t yet grabbed yourself a copy of Spider-Man then it’s probably because you don’t own a PS4, and for that I will bestow you with a moment of silence. … If you do, however, own the only platform you can play this amazing game on and have not managed to get your hands on it...

The Meg

“That was the best movie I’ve seen all year!” my friend exclaimed as we left the cinema. While I can’t quite agree with her, I was certainly blown away at how not-bad The Meg had turned out to be. When you walk into a monster movie like The Meg, all you want to see is Jason Statham f...

LEGO Incredibles

Nothing will ever beat the experience that was the first LEGO Star Wars game. That’s why, though still good, every other LEGO game succeeding it was still somehow slightly disappointing. LEGO Incredibles is the same, however I reckon it comes the closest to the glory of LEGO Star Wars. The one thing I...

Incredibles 2

  Di: Before we dive into this much-anticipated (by me, anyway) sequel, I think it’s impossible not to give a brief nod to something that’s become a bit of a Pixar tradition: the animated pre-show short film. Jaz: Ooh, yes! It’s called Bao, like the Chinese pork buns, and it’s probably one of my favour...

E3 2018: Sony Conference Highlights

Sony started things off in a nicely decorated church. After a banjo player serenaded the standing audience, a clip from the Last of Us Part II played, which started off in a similarly decorated room The Last of Us Part II It goes from happy, friendly times, to not-so-friendly times, back to a nice ending al...

E3 2018: Ubisoft Conference Highlights

Ubisoft’s conference started off with a bang. To announce a game like Just Dance 2019, I have learned that you don’t need to have someone stand on a stage and say some words. A dancing panda and a lot of colourful costumes will work just fine, if not better. It was a great start and I was pumped for w...

E3 2018: Square Enix Showcase

Square Enix streamed a half hour show, in which half of their stuff had already been announced by Microsoft yesterday, leading to a somewhat disappointing showcase overall, but there were still a few good nuggets in there! Babylon’s Fall What was probably the biggest thing to happen during the showcase was ...

Detroit: Become Human

“Remember, you decide the fate of your characters. All of them can die. So… be careful.” The affirming words of Chloe, the android who greets you on the menu screen, sum up Detroit: Become Human pretty well. This is a game where your quick thinking and composure in tense situations is tested. This is not a ...

Far Cry 5

Far Cry 5 opens with a helicopter ride and an expositional spiel about how Joseph Seed, The Father, has taken over Hope County. A few US Marshalls have been sent in to arrest him, including you, the Rookie. A beginning so basic and (if I had to admit) a bit boring, meant things weren’t boding well for...

Tomb Raider

As soon as Tomb Raider starts, you know it’s going to have a very different flavour to the Angelina Jolie films. You know there aren’t going to be any sexy open-mouthed shower scenes. And you know there won’t be any crash zooms into gun-strapped thighs with suggestive sound effects. And it’s refreshing. Tom...

Well, stay tuned, because I bring tidings of great joy. A new age of party games is dawning, and it comes in the form of PlayLink – a new ap...
