Grand Theft Auto 5 Tops the Charts… Again

blank There are things in life that are inevitable: Death, taxes and Grand Theft Auto 5. It’s a meme – a joke – and yet the titan that killed Elden Ring’s chart-topping success is Grand Theft Auto 5. It’s close enough to ten years since we wrote about the announcement of Grand Theft Auto V on this very site, and here we are writing about it again. It has launched for a new generation of consoles and it has done quite…

Why Do Game Developers Suck So Much?

blank Another week, another list of publishers and developers that have been accused of treating their staff abysmally. Add in Sony and Activision – and no doubt countless others – and it feels like the industry is just awful. Sexism, racism, abuse. These companies fly flags and issue press releases when International Women’s Day rolls around, but behind closed doors hate just about everybody regardless of anything. Equal opportunities abuse – finally we’ve made ...

 

The Old Man’s Guide to VTubers

blank At the grizzled old age of 32 sometimes I need help understanding the basics of the modern world. What is a dab? Why is TikTok a thing when it’s so obviously not a thing? And today, what the hell are vtubers? For a while now, there’s been a lot on the internet that I haven’t understood. Frankly, it’s only been getting worse. As someone who grew up in 90s chatrooms, I used to get the wild west nature of the…

 

Dawn of Ragnarok Review

blank The final DLC has landed for Assassin's Creed Valhalla, and it's a big one. Dawn of Ragnarok is available now, and thanks to Ubisoft Canada, I had an early go at the entire experience.

blank There were no 15 minutes introductory cutscenes. There’s no quest log or diary of recent dialogue. Hell, there isn’t even a Sonic the Hedghog-esque voice actor saying “previously on…” every time I load. I have no idea what’s happening in Elden Ring – and I love it. I mean, hey, I like being beaten over the head with issues as much as the next guy. I’m sure those giants I’ve killed over and over are Somalian pirates or something. Or…

The Elden Ring Hype Is Real

blank Occasionally a game will come out that helps define a generation. Ocarina of Time. Metal Gear Solid 2. The Last of Us. Red Dead Redemption 2. And now, perhaps, we can add Elden Ring to that list. I say perhaps because I haven’t played it yet. I wasn’t planning to play it for some time. Trailers and discussions have been ignored… But today the Metacritic score got to me and I loaded up my Amazon account and purchased the launch…
