The State of State of Play

blank 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?…

Thirty Years of id Software

blank Doom is probably one of the most influential titles of all time. Why? You had to be there. id created something that changed the course of video game history. It’d be a lie to say there was nothing else like it at the time, although it wouldn’t be too big an exaggeration. Wolfenstein – again from id – had come out the year before. But there was something that just clicked with Doom. It probably helped that it was eventually…

 

Is Competitive Gaming the Future?

blank There’s no doubt about it that competitive gaming is becoming bigger than many of us ever expected. The image of dusty school halls filled with overweight middle-aged men lugging CRT monitors about is now officially a thing of the past. Playing video games to a professional level is now cool and, hell, even women are getting involved. Take that, every 90s sit-com. The writing is on the wall. This is the future – whether we like it or not. Outlive…

 
 

Resident Evil Showcase – January 2021 (Video)

blank The Resident Evil Showcase just aired and you can just out the replay below. We also has some thoughts on the event too. The Resident Evil Showcase was short but still interesting. The most interesting thing about it, of course, was Resident Evil Village. A new trailer and some new gameplay footage was shown. The game looks absolutely amazing. The graphics are so stunning! Like Resident Evil 7, Village is in first person mode. It seems to work for this…

 

Where Have the Z-List Film Tie-in Games Gone?

blank No licensed music, characters that look nothing like their film counterparts and stories that only slightly resemble the source material – tie-in games used to be things of beauty. Alas, those days have gone. Development is harder than ever, taking years and years. Throwing together Hogwarts in six months is no longer an option. It’s more than a little depressing. There’s an entire generation of children who’ll never buy the worst video games just because they ...

 

The Dangers of Loot Boxes

blank Loot boxes are just the latest solution to the “problem” of increasing profits within the gaming industry, but really they’re no solution at all. On paper, they’re perfect. Monetise optional extras which can be earned through hard work or, for a small number of whales, be purchased. Fair enough, right? But it’s pretty clear that in recent years, developers are pushing this system to the limit. Overwatch is the perfect example, where little tricks and ...

 
 

The State of Sports Games in 2021

blank What on earth has happened to the sports game genre? Has there been a mass brain removal among the fanbase in the last 10 years? I get it – sports fans tend to buy one or two titles a year, and they’re always exactly the same franchise. They’re like Call of Duty fans, except without the new maps, the new story levels or the new guns. Instead you get a new roster and, maybe, a slightly new graphical sheen. So…
