Hands on preview with Battlefield Hardline

I had the chance this week to have a hands-on preview of the upcoming Battlefield: Hardline, the newest instalment of the Battlefield franchise being developed by Visceral Games. It’s a significant departure from the military theme that’s been so endemic to the previous games, harkening back to the old playground favourite, Cops and Robbers; a relic from a time when kids could point their fingers at another and shout BANG! without being brought before the vice-principal. Ah, but the game.

Tales of Xillia 2 – Review

8 out of 10 Great

Full disclosure – I have never played a JRPG before. In fact, I know next to nothing about the whole JRPG verse. So, when the opportunity arose to review Tales of Xillia 2, naturally I questioned my ability to provide a well-informed assessment of the latest game in the series. Given my lack of knowledge on the history of this game, my review will not focus on the strength of the story or the improvements on gameplay from the previous instalments. Instead, this review is structured from a newcomers perspective, and provides a general summary of how the game looks, […]

TPAT Highlights – Mindjack

What is it like to watch someone slowly go mad over the course of a two hour gaming session? What kind of insidious creation could possibly induce the kind of unparallelled hysteria that threatens tears? I don’t want to spoil it for you or anything, but the answer is apparently the game Mindjack.

Interview – Graham Nardone, Associate Producer of The Sims 4

Mor goobida bibso neb neb? Nar harmy glarch! I remember a household I made in the first The Sims game, way back when it was released. While most of the family were spending their days earning money, making friends and trying to get ahead in the rat race, there was Uncle Bob. Uncle Bob was eccentric. Thanks to mods from the time, he dressed like a King. Bob liked to make life difficult for the others in the house, and would frequently interrupt them and impose his wild indulgences on them. With The Sims 4 due to be released next […]

Community Report: EA Gamescom Event

It doesn’t take a lot of effort to find negative opinions about EA. Google might be your friend, but the auto-completes suggests that its no friend of EA. The company was voted ‘Worst Company in the World’ in 2012 and 2013, and if you weren’t a gamer, you would be scratching your head about what this evil corporation might be up to. When you hear of things like that, you start to wonder – what twisted sort of person might work there? Are they filled with loathing and contempt for those beyond, or are they perhaps like John Smith from […]
