We Happy Few has suffered many controversies since it was first publicly revealed at PAX East in 2015. Since that time, we’ve seen an extended Early Access period and a huge overhaul of the games narrative and progressive design. Is We Happy Few worth enjoying for the game it has become, or has the change in direction lost its charm along the way?
Shining Resonance Refrain is an English translation and remastered version of the original Shining Resonance that launched in Japan for the PlayStation 3 in 2014. With a new generation of gaming consoles, far higher expectations, and very little presence for the franchise in the west, does Shining Resonance Refrain hold enough substance to compete in today’s industry?
Ubisoft returns to the starting grid with the release of The Crew 2, a sequel to 2014’s mediocre racer that promises to be bigger, badder, and faster. Adding a flurry of new vehicles, vast improvements to the environment, and highly intuitive video and capture tools, does The Crew 2 warrant enough for another lap around Ubisoft’s race-driven America?
Way back in 2003, Operation Genesis introduced players to an exciting hybrid of theme park management with attractions that could swallow you whole. With 15 years of gaming evolution, does Jurassic World Evolution live up to its spiritual predecessor, or (in the immortal words of Ian Malcolm) is it one big pile of shit?
London in the early 1900’s wasn’t the beacon of industry and culture it is today. Its inhabitants living in fear of another bombing raid, gripped by another outbreak of the deadly Spanish Flu, it wasn’t just a tough place to live; it was a tough place to survive. Throw in some undesirable creatures of the night, and you’ve got a recipe for pure chaos. Dontnod Entertainment’s Vampyr puts players in the shoes of Dr. Jonathan Reid, a once proud surgeon who now needs to feed on the lives of those he once fought to cure in a twist adventure of choice and consequence. Does Vampyr offer enough substance to sink your teeth into?
Detroit: Become Human is the latest effort of creative storytelling from the development team behind Heavy Rain, Quantic Dream. Set in an almost twisted dystopian Detroit, the game follows the story of three playable characters and a revolution that would change the course of history, for humans and androids alike
Stomping through a Gothic playground and exploring the remains of a massive spacecraft, all while wearing some of the most devastating weapons possible sounds like a thrilling time. However, is the FPS genre the right direction for Warhammer 40K, or is Space Hulk: Death Wing Enhanced Edition yet another poor iteration of the Space Hulk universe?
Today’s peripheral gaming market is flooded with the latest expensive additions, promising to evolve your gaming experience. Monitors are just one aspect of this ever growing marketplace, but how much does difference does a good gaming monitor actually make? We sat down and took some time exploring the ViewSonic XG2402 24″ Gaming Monitor
Following the hugely successful Project Eternity Kickstarter campaign, the development team at Obsidian Entertainment once again hopes to thrust players into the RPG worlds of yesteryear with the release of Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire. As the RPG genre continues to grow and evolve into more action orientated experiences, is there still space for the nostalgic approach to the RPG environment?
Every facet of God of War has been created as a labor of love. Seldom do we see such a complete, such a whole experience in modern gaming. God of War is nothing short of a modern day masterpiece
In late 2013, a game released that would raise the expectations of the seafaring genre for the entire gaming audience. A game that set a precedent, raised the bar, and (we all hoped) would inspire developers to create a good pirate multiplayer game. That game was Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Sea of Thieves, on the other hand, is unfinished, uninspired, and arguably the biggest waste of $60 I’ve spent this year
With gaming culture rapidly approaching a $230 billion industry it’s not surprising to see companies tack on the gaming label to push new products. Sometimes a marketing gimmick is just that, but other times these products shine when combined with the vigorous physical demand of playing video games for hours on end. When it comes to Secret Lab’s TITAN Gaming chair, is it a struggling marketing gimmick, or something truly worth the investment?
