New Releases – July 2017


It’s a pretty barren month coming up. Of the slim pickings, top would be Final Fantasy XII – The Zodaic Age. It might be a remaster, but its also a version of a game many are unlikely to have played.

New Releases – June 2017


By chance or design, two massive MMO’s are releasing their expansions in June. Elder Scrolls Online taps into nostalgia and takes players back to Morrowind. Unlike the previous DLC for the game, Morrowind is a purchase-only expansion (i.e. you don’t get it with the optional subscription and you can’t buy it with in-game currency) Hopefully…

New Releases – May 2017


A few titles out this May. Not much that warrants an instant buy, but there’s some items of interest. Prey might not be the follow up to the 2006 game that many people had hoped for, but it is a game by Arkane Studios with writing by Chris Avellone. That alone should be enough to…

New Releases – April 2017


Finally, Persona 5 is out this month. It only been reviewed in a few places so far, but all looks positive. It’ll be good to get back into the structured world of Persona again. It’s certainly been a long time coming, considering Persona 4 released waaay back in 2008. Needless to say, it’s on my…

New Releases – March 2017


Highlights this month include Horizon Zero Dawn (great name /s) the launch of Nintendo’s new console – the Switch, Zelda Breath of the Wild, Mass Effect Andromeda and Nier: Automata. 

The Gaming Month Ahead – February 2017


UPDATED: It turns out Persona 5 is delayed until April 4th. Thanks to James in the comments for that heads up. There’s a few big titles this month, but surprisingly not as many as I might have expected. Right at the end of the month comes Torment: Tides of Numenera. It’s the spiritual successor to Planescape…

The Gaming Month Ahead – January 2017


I never have much expectations from Januaries. Most of the time they tend to surprise and have some pretty great games hidden away in the post-christmas lull. This year is fairly slim pickings for big titles. For most people Resident Evil 7 will likely be the biggest title this month. Personally for me it’s a…

The Gaming Month Ahead – December 2016


It’s December. There’s never really many games this time of year and that still holds true. Still, there’s a few high-profile titles coming out the right side of the black-friday mess that seemed to have impacted COD, Dishonored 2 and Titanfall 2’s sales. The long awaited cat-weasel is unleashed. The Last Guardian finally arrives.

The Gaming Month Ahead – November 2016


November is here, and with it lots of big games and a slightly upgraded console. Let’s start with Tyranny. A game from Obsidian following Pillars of Eternity was always going to have my attention. While I didn’t think much of the White March expansion, the base game was easily my best RPG experience since Dragon…

The Gaming Month Ahead – October 2016


  I think it’s hard to argue that this months biggest release is that of Playstation VR. Coming out like a new console, complete with a bevy of release titles, PSVR marks the beginning of affordable VR. Unlike the Oculus and HTC Vive, PSVR comes in at around £400 (£350 on its own, but it…

The Gaming Month Ahead – September 2016


September’s release list is a little late this month. I blame Deus Ex: Mankind Revolution – outside of work I’ve been pretty much locked into its delightful words of vents. If anything, playing it makes me even more excited for Dishonoured 2 for more sneaking/murder action. But this is about September – what’s out September…

The Gaming Month Ahead – August 2016


After a few months on a drip feed on good games, August brings a veritable harvest of must-haves. It’s entirely arguable which one here deserves top-billing. If we’re going by news-stories and media attention alone, then it’s undoubtedly No Man’s Sky. Having struggled through tough development and silly lawsuits, the ambitious space exploration sim finally…
