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. Read more…

dishonored

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 Age: Oranges all those years ago. Read more…

psvr

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 needs the PS4 camera) and the supporting hardware is a lot cheaper than a VR capable PC as well. Read more…

The Gaming Month Ahead – September 2016

Horizon3

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 you ask? Lots of sports games for one. Read more…

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 releases this month on PS4 and PC. Read more…

Gundam

Hopefully everyone has enough to do over this July, or enough of a backlog of games to keep them satiated. There isn’t a heck of a lot out this month. There is however the first Gundam game to make it out west in ages – and thankfully it doesn’t seem to be the kind of awful slop that came out at the launch of the PS3. The wonderfully named Mobile Suit Gunda: Extreme Vs. Force follows a series of high-octane arcade games focused on 2v2 battles.  Read more…

mirror-edge-catalyst-faith

The headlining game this month was supposed to be No Man’s Sky, but that’s been delayed to August. So instead we’re left with a lot of lesser known titles, some of which I know very little about. I suppose the replacement headliner then is Mirror’s Edge Catalyst. Read more…
