The Dragon Age Inquisition character creator is glorious

The lone wolf’s last hunt – a Destiny review

7 out of 10 Good

So there’s this little game called Destiny.  Perhaps you’ve heard of it.  No other game in recent memory has had such an enormous, prolonged marketing blitz before launch.  And no game has had such a divisive reaction from fans and critics after launch.  Is Destiny a soulless failure?  Is it the future of gaming?  Is it both?  Destiny is, perhaps by design, a game that is difficult to love, yet impossible to put down.  So forming a coherent opinion on it has been difficult.  How do I judge something that, by its creators own admission, is far from complete?

The Sims 4 – Review

8 out of 10 Great

I have a love-hate relationship with The Sims franchise. And the reason I love it is also the reason I hate it – it’s incredibly addictive. With its simple premise of guiding a sim through their life, celebrating their successes and drowning their sorrows, the series has found a very strong fan base that gobbles up new releases as though they are mac and cheese delights cooked by a sim with a culinary skill of 12+.

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.

Square Enix releases new Final Fantasy 15 trailer

You know what’s been missing from Final Fantasy all this time?  Road trips.  At least, that’s apparently what Square Enix thought.  The latest trailer features the game’s heroes driving around the countryside in a sweet convertible, stopping every so often to battle monsters and evil doers with enormous swords.  It’s all very Final Fantasy.  Read on to see it for yourself.

Preview – Wasteland 2

Everyone loves a post-apocalyptic RPG and if you like your post-apocalypses gritty and mature, you can’t get much better than Wasteland 2. Successfully crowdfunded through Kickstarter and developed by inXile Entertainment, Wasteland 2 is the first official sequel to the 1988 Wasteland, and if my hands-on with the title is anything to go on, the game is shaping up to be one of the best releases of 2014.
