Activision Anti-Trust Talk is Wishful Thinking

“Won’t someone think of Sony?!” That has been the theme of seemingly endless articles released since the announcement that Microsoft is buying Activision.  It can only be that because, let’s face it, with even a second’s thought, this deal is not unfair or illegal. I’m talking from a corporate perspective, of course. And yet armchair lawyers across the world are calling for the deal to be stopped on the basis of, basically, hurt feelings. Anti-trust is not going to look…

Shadow Man: Remastering a Classic

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

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…

PSVR2 Hasn’t Solved VRs Biggest Problem

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

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…

Disney Classic Games – Jungle Book, Aladdin and The Lion King

When Disney and it’s development partners work together to bring a title to Nintendo Switch, you know it’s going to be something special, and generally, it’s happening for a fairly good reason. In 2019, The Walt Disney Company remade two of their iconic, classic animated titles into live action pictures. In 2021, they built on that game collection and added The Jungle Book. Let’s take a look. Before jumping into the Jungle Book, it’s worth noting that due to popular…

All Hail The Game Awards

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.…
