What’s In an Engine?

blank Gamers don’t have to worry about what engine their favourite games run on. Not usually. Not like a few years ago. The engine is like sound or editing – if it’s doing its job, you don’t even really notice it exists. And yet engines are right at the forefront of conversation again thanks to the Matrix interactive trailer released last week. It was mind-bending. I don’t want to take anything away from it, because I still can’t quite get my…

 

All Hail The Game Awards

blank 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.…

The Sonic Games You Never Played

blank Christmas is nearly here and that means nostalgia. In gaming terms, that means endless pictures of 90s kids and their latest consoles – the Mega Drive or SNES. Probably while wearing Sonic the Hedgehog pyjamas. But it can also mean revisiting your old faves, and that’s exactly what me and Mrs G are up to. Along with our never ending battle with Crash 2, we’ve also decided to do a sweep of the Sonic franchise – from humble beginnings in…

The GTA Trilogy Shows Publishers Are Too Cocky

blank When I wrote that the GTA Trilogy collection had best be good, because even Rockstar only gets one chance to majorly screw up, I worried I might be being overly sensitive. This is Rockstar we’re talking about, they’re not going to release a game that has the lowest Metacritic user score of all time. Yes, Grand Theft Auto 6 will now only sell 100 million copies instead of 155 million. Or, more likely, we’ll all be taken in by the…

 

Halo Infinite – First Impressions

blank At long last, Microsoft’s long-awaited Xbox Series launch title is here. Halo Infinite is a year late and, in fact, arriving after Forza Horizon 5 and Psychonauts 2, but better late than never. And, actually, it has been a long time since Halo has felt this good. The multiplayer mode for Halo Infinite was shadowdropped during the Xbox 20th anniversary celebrations on Monday. Technically still a beta, it is the full release in every way except name. You can get…

 

Airborne Kingdom is a City Building Gem

blank When it comes to city builders on consoles, the results are generally poor. Even if the game is rock solid, the controls don't often translate well to controllers. These are games primarily built for a mouse and keyboard. Yet somehow Airborne Kingdom deals with those issues with ease, and provides a fantastic experience that is a must play for any city building fan.
