If you’ve been playing Bioware’s latest installment in the Dragon Age series, you’ll know how difficult it is to tear yourself away from Dragon Age: Inquisition. However, if there’s going to be one reason to stop venturing through the Hinterlands, one reason to have you pause whatever romance you’re attempting with a particular party member, one reason to stop collecting Elfroot, we hope the allure of pairing Dragon Age party members with alcoholic beverages will be that reason.

Review: Grim Fandango Remastered

Grim Title
9 out of 10 Excellent Recommended

In the dying days of the Golden Age of Adventure Games, genre stalwarts Lucasarts released a daring game that strode into the still-novel waters of three-dimensional gaming.

Written and Directed by Tim Schafer, Grim was something special.

To everyone hoping to run those last minute ideas past the Battlefield Hardline devs, I’ve got some bad news. The game is done. Finished. Finalized. Complete. Wrapped up. Done.

9.5 out of 10 Excellent

Basketball is a weird sport. I played it for ten years during school and while I learnt skills, no one taught me to be tall. Because my bright and shiny basketball career was tragically cut short, I now write, but thankfully for me and everyone else under 7ft, the latest instalment of Visual Concepts and 2K Games’ long running basketball series is out now.

As a secret minigame hidden within the forgotten racing franchise Project Gotham Racing, Geometry Wars has certainly come a long way.
