It looked cool and edgy, not unlike the Blade film I’d been too young to watch.…

How To Jump Backwards in Shadow Man Remastered

Shadow Man is back, and with him the age old question of how to beat the game’s true boss: any ledge from which you have to jump backwards. I’m kidding of course. But it is something you eventually have to do, and it’s something that’s not especially well explained.

2021 Was the Year of Covid – and 2022 Will Be Too

New Years is usually the time when we reflect on the past 12 months. And in the case of 2021 one word sticks out: covid. It influenced our day-to-day lives, our politics, our jobs. It impacted our video games, and it will continue to do so. Sony and Nintendo released so few mainstream games last year, while Microsoft’s biggest title came along after a year’s delay. The already barren first years of the new console generation were about as bad…

All Hail The Game Awards

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – the Game Awards. That means a fanbase who simultaneously don’t value awards but get incredibly angry when their favourite titles don’t get any. There’ll be some fun trailers and, as is tradition, absolutely no mention of Silent Hill. And, genuinely, for all the downplaying that gets done at this time of year, it’s still and event that gets people talking at a time when there isn’t much new to talk about.…
