Dynasty Warriors

Dynasty Warriors is Everything Gamers Want – Why is it a Punchline?

If you've been watching gaming communities over the last few months, you'll have noticed a mantra of sorts beginning to form. It tends to be some variation on "if you give us what we want, we'll buy it." It's a noble idea, but one that's not quite true.

Tiny Tina – How Dragon’s Keep Changed my Mind

After Borderlands' narrative had disappointed me so many times before, I went into Assault on Dragon's Keep expecting another fun but hollow adventure into the world of Pandora. Instead, I received a gorgeous, wildly entertaining piece of content that not only finds the emotional connection the series has so desperately needed, but does so in the place I'd least expect to find it.

Ethan: Meteor Hunter Preview

Ethan Meteor Hunter is a puzzle platform game by Seaven Studio. You play as Ethan, a mouse given the power to stop time because he was hit by a meteor. The reason for this isn't explained in the alpha, but perhaps it will be revealed in the full game. Ethan's mission is to collect bits of meteorites as he makes his way through 50 levels. There is a counter at the top of the screen to let you know how many meteorites are in a given level and how many you have collected. It's definitely an original idea, at least from what I’ve seen.

Metal Gear Solid V Fan Theories are in – Two Snakes, Grey Fox and… Solidus/Master Miller is Snake?

What's a little Metal Gear hype without a few wild (and a few less wild) fan theories? We've all had over a week to watch and soak in the extended version of the first "proper" Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain trailer, shown at the beginning of last week's Microsoft conference, and I'm sure we've all got our own ideas about what's happening and how it all fits into the series as a whole.

Innovation held back by Old Machines – Welcome to PC Gaming, and to PS4 and Xbox One

For years now, console gamers have rolled their eyes whenever the matter of PC gaming being “held back by consoles” has come up. The PC elite, with their often snobbish attitudes and condescending comments, have claimed that because all they get are poor console ports, that no publisher is really making the most of their more expensive, more modern hardware. It’s a very genuine problem and one that most goes ignored most of the time, partly thanks to those few…
