The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited review

Just how much can adding a subtitle to a game make it new? Well, if you’ve continued to play Elder Scrolls Online after its launch last year then you’d have to admit that sticking ‘Tamriel Unlimited’ on the end hasn’t come with all that much, besides scrapping the monthly subscription...

How Rust plans to dethrone DayZ

Billed as the next DayZ, zombies would be a holiday from this, the most brutal society ever simulated. Welcome to Rust. Prepare to die. Horribly. Rust is a game about solidarity, co-operation and friendly rivalry. No, wait. Bastardry. At least, it is a lot of the time. For reasons that...
