Ronin review

Anonymous masked ‘heroes’ fighting against a seemingly all-powerful entity is hardly a new videogaming idea. Indeed, its continued popularity perhaps serves to prove that, at least when it comes to bloodthirsty rampages, it offers just enough narrative uncertainly to develop audience interest without getting in the way of the action....

The return of the modders

How the rise of the modding community is about to change the industry forever Modding is an odd concept. A subset of gamers devoting all their free time to adding content, improving issues or even dramatically overhauling their favourite games, often putting hundreds upon thousands of hours into their creations without expecting...

Infinifactory review

It’s only in playing Infinifactory that we’ve realised just how stagnant the puzzle genre is. It’s a revelatory experience, one that leaves you wondering why all games of the genre can’t match this sense of freedom. For all the options available to gamers, puzzle games are more often than not...

Her Story review

Her Story burrowed into our brain and dug right in there, buried itself like a tic. It made us compulsively obsessed with small details, it made us listen intently to the sole character’s voice, replaying bytes of sound over and over again as we scanned for a crack in the...

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...
