Games Review: Prey: Mooncrash (PS4, 2018): Giant Steps Are What You Take

The surprise release of Prey: Mooncrash flew under radar at E3, buried among hype for the next Elder Scrolls, the bombastic Rage 2, and Starfield among other brilliant announcements. The original title has often been similarly ignored, and considering it was a strong early contender for game of the year in 2017, it’s high time that the rebooted franchise realised its true potential.

E3 2018: Fallout 76 is indeed online, but don’t let that get in the way of your hype

So, the rumours were true. Fallout 76 is indeed an online version of the Fallout you know and love. But it’s not an MMO. Not really. In fact, from Bethesda had to show off at their E3 press event, it actually looks like the Fallout and Elder Scrolls multiplayer mode

E3 2018: Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a co-op 80’s adventure coming in 2019

We all knew Wolfenstein II would find its way to Nintendo Switch eventually, and it is, that’s not the story here. What we were not expecting is a seperate co-operative adventure set in the 1980’s starring the twin daughters of BJ Blaskowicz, but that’s what we’re getting.

E3 2018: Rage 2 kicks off the Bethesda E3 showcase

Kicking the Bethesda E3 showcase off with a fast, sugary one-song concert by Andrew WK and a pretty hilarious barb from Bethesda’s Pete Hines over Walmart Canada leaking the game’s existence, Rage 2 dropped a brand new trailer re-explaining the world and its main character, Walker, the last ranger.

Bethesda confirms Rage 2 is on the way, gameplay trailer tomorrow

Last week, Walmart Canada inadvertently spilled the beans on what appeared to be a number of high profile (and mostly still unconfirmed) E3 announcements. Among them was Rage 2, a sequel to id Software’s oddball post-apocalyptic shooter from 2010. Rather than go dark until E3, Bethesda spent a few days teasing an announcement and then revealed overnight that the Rage 2 leak was indeed legit.

Games Review: DOOM (Switch, 2017): Non-stop demon destruction, now in your pocket

God, DOOM is good. It’s so good. It was good when we reviewed it on PS4 last year and it remains good now, almost 18 months later, as it debuts on the Nintendo Switch. One of the biggest questions gamers had for the Switch at launch was whether it could support portable versions of major AAA releases. If DOOM is anything to go by, the answer is an emphatic yes.
