Earlier this week, the second South Park: The Fractured But Whole DLC, “From Dusk Till Casa Bonita”, was released – featuring a brand new story line that pegs the goths against the vamps, adding a class that you can take back to the main game with you, and introducing Henrietta as an ally. It also brings in some new mini-games by way of an arcade in the restaurant, and allows you to play a version of the much-talked about Kanye West mini-game whenever you want.... Continue Reading
As I write this, three days after a rather bumpy launch, its clear that Sea of Thieves is a bit of a mixed bag. There are things that I love about it, there are things that I don’t love about it and there are things that I feel are not particularly well understood by those who are currently complaining about it online. Is it a good game though? The simple answer is yes, provided you are playing with four friends you can trust.

Continue reading Games Review: Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom: Higgledy-Piggledy
After spending years accruing Ubisoft shares in what appeared to be preparation for a hostile takeover attempt, French media conglomerate Vivendi have thrown in the towel, selling their entire 27.3% stake in Ubisoft for $2.4 billion USD. Continue reading Vivendi no longer a Ubisoft shareholder, Chinese conglomerate Tencent step in as new long term investor

Like quite a number of people, I was excited yet a little skeptical when Sony announced a new installment to the venerable God of War series. Was Santa Monica Studios going to roll out the same game but in a different skin? I got to be among the first in the world to find out, getting some personal hands-on time with Santa Monica Studios’ God of War and the amount of excitement I feel is right now is hard to explain. Although I only got to play the first three hours of this installment (for now), it’s given me plenty to talk about. Continue reading Games Preview: The New God of War is Everything We’ve Been Asking For
I have a genuine love of job simulator games that is both unnerving and inexplicable. I also find them deeply hilarious. The seriousness with which they take themselves and my absolute refusal to take anything seriously makes for a very entertaining combination, at least as far as I’m concerned. Thus, when a code for Pure Farming 2018 arrived in my inbox last week, I was predictably excited.

Kirby Star Allies was so disgustingly cute that it made me want to vomit. From its charming and delightful characters to its friendship-based co-operative gameplay, everything about Star Allies is just plain adorable. When Kirby’s friends are low on health, he heals them by ‘kissing’ them, generating tiny love hearts across the screen. When presented with obstacles, Kirby and his friends form together to create super-powered friendship moves, including the Friendship Circle and Friendship Trains, each of which annihilate all enemies in your path.
