  • “That’s it! Game over, man! Game over!”

    Giles has had enough. You probably have too. Though it’s sad to admit, some things need to be said…

  • Pipe Dreams – The Next Xbox

    Duncan wades into the fray to talk about some potentially overlooked aspects he hopes the next Xbox does, and does not, include.

  • God Mode game now available worldwide

    God Mode, the third-person arcade shooter by Saber Interactive, is now available to download worldwide on Steam and Xbox LIVE Arcade, and coming to the PlayStation Network on April 23. God Mode pits players against waves of demonic hordes as they use plenty of death-dealing instruments such as plasma cannons, miniguns and what’s affectionately known…

  • Playing With The Lights On

    Fear. In the world of gaming we can claim to be fans of horror but when you think about it, playing through a game that really succeeds as a truly scary game is not a pleasant experience. I do enjoy playing these types of games, but only when I am with friends, or more recently…

  • The Silent Sidekick

    This Blog is dedicated to all of the ‘Player 2’s out there. When I play alone, all is well. I kick the Call of Duty campaign’s arse very sufficiently indeed.

I own an Xbox 360’. It’s not really seen as a thing you should have quit when you turned 12 anymore. It is easier…

  • Forgotten Ideas

    Everybody remembers Resident Evil when it was still a Survival Horror. We all know where we were when we first played the 1996 title and we all jumped a mile when the dogs burst through the window. We all agreed it was getting stale by the time Resident Evil 0 came out, and rejoiced when Leon…
