Activision Reaction: Microsoft Do it Again

blank There’s about no bigger screw you in the industry than making Crash Bandicoot your new mascot. But that’s just what Microsoft did when they bought Activision. And that’s the least of it. Spending nearly $70b has put them in about as incredible a position as they ever could be. They’ve taken on a whole host of huge hitters, from Call of Duty and Warcraft to Spyro the Dragon and Tony Hawks. Like with Bethesda, we must now wait several months…

Shadow Man: Remastering a Classic

blank Shadow Man Remastered brings back a cult classic – successfully reviving a game that fans have been demanding gets new life for years. I hope they’re happy with what they wished for. In some preliminary research for this game, I took a quick look at some of the original reviews, and was blown away by what I saw. I remember the case, of course. 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

blank 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. And yes, if you go searching, it won’t take long to find people who complained about this issue in the original release of this game. The good news is that it’s…

 

Farming Simulator 22 Gets Better Because of Mods

blank If you haven't been playing Farming Simulator 22 because you've been waiting for more mods to be available across all platforms, I've got good news for you - while the mod support was pretty lackluster for the first week or two, things have drastically improved, and I'm going to show you how in one specific way. Let's dive into...woodchipping?

 

32x – Sega’s Strangest Move

blank Let’s talk about the 32x, because frankly not enough people are. The 32x was an add-on for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive that effectively turned it into a Sega Saturn. Well, not really. It gave it a decent power boost, allowing it to play such intensive games as Doom (oooh!) and Star Wars Arcade (ahhh!). But its release was muddy, confusing and probably a good sign of things to come with the Saturn and ultimately the Dreamcast. Here is where Sega’s…

 
 

PSVR2 Hasn’t Solved VRs Biggest Problem

blank The new PSVR2 looks very impressive on paper. Oled screens, 4k, HDR, head vibrations (which isn’t something you brag about unless it’s pretty good). But Sony’s laundry list of features may sound great on paper, but they do absolutely nothing to solve VRs biggest problem: content. And I must stress this isn’t a Sony only issue, In fact, everybody has this problem, and nobody seems overly keen to solve it. VR is a limited market, so nobody wants to create…

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

blank 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…

 
 

Lazy PC Ports are Coming Back

blank There was a time when you felt lucky as a PC gamer if you had any degree of control over a console-to-PC port. If it released the same year as the console version, it was practically Christmas. Then the money started coming in. Steam sales allowed every title to have a tail that lasted months or even years after release. Simply porting your title and giving it some customisability eventually meant you made money. It should have stayed that way,…
