Will Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 Need Mid-Gen Upgrades?

The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are more powerful than anything we’ve ever had before. But that doesn’t mean much. The PS4 and Xbox One were mid-level even at launch, and it’s been incredible to see how they’ve been utilized by clever developers over the last seven years. PS4 Pro and Xbox One X were desperately needed when we got to about year four or five, as people started to buy 4K TVs and developers started wanting to push…

Console Gaming Needs Graphical Settings More Than Ever

Developers, I love you, but this conversation is overdue. Your choice of graphical settings consistently suck in console games, and it’s time to just hand over the reigns to the end user. I know, I know, this isn’t what consoles are all about. Just buy a PC, right? But these new consoles are powerful enough to do native 4K, 60FPS, and definitely not both. But why? On PC, players can make their own compromises, working out the kinks on as…

Game Guides: How The Art of Cheating Has Disappeared

My office is filled with books and on the bottom shelf is a treasure trove of old game guides. I’ll never need to know how to win at Gangsters again, but it’s there, ready for an emergency. Nostalgia – it’s the only reason to keep them. They’re worth pennies, if that.

Let’s be honest – this week’s State of Play was just okay. The recent general Nintendo Direct wasn’t much better. What happening with these update videos, and why do they keep disappointing? My first instinct was that this was an expectation problem. If you’re hoping to see your first glimpse of God of War: Ragnarok, you’re not going to be overjoyed by the biggest news being a piece of DLC for a year old game. But shouldn’t that be obvious?…
