The World of Tyranny

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to represent evil? To be the dispenser of injustice? To be the heel on the boot that is grinding the face of humanity? Well wonder no more! Those good people at Obsidian and Paradox have been asking the same question and come up with an answer…

Paragon is Ready for Open Beta

There’s been a surge of MOBA-lite shooters lately; Battleborn, Overwatch, Smite and Paladins just to name a few. Admirable rosters, usually hosting a tech-clad gremlin. Most recently, Paragon has come to open beta and is all ready to play. I’m downloading it right now, and I’m quite excited by the prospect. Paragon looks to play…

The Crew Wants YOU to Join the Police

It's been a wee while since anything of any real substance came out of The Crew. After the Wild Run expansion, there wasn't a whole hell of a lot that needed doing, truth be told. Apart from fixing that ruddy bug where maps won't load properly! Though it may seem like Ubisoft have been sitting…

Deck13 Surge Into Gamescom

It would be easy, and honestly not inaccurate, to call Deck13's The Surge “Lords of the Fallen with mech suits.” But at the same time, that would be doing it a great disservice. As this quarter hour of gameplay shows, there's a lot more to it than that. Once you look past the basic presentation…

Here’s The Grind on Gears of War 4

Earlier today during the 2016 Gamescon, held in Cologne, Germany, Microsoft dropped some hefty bombs on Xbox One and PC gamers for their upcoming sequel to the massively popular cover-shooter, Gears of War 4.

ReCore @ Gamescom

ReCore has been an announced game for Xbox One for some time now, but thanks to Microsoft’s recent attempts at integrating Xbox One with the Windows 10, it was confirmed to be coming to PC as well.

Gamescom Takes a Moment of Silence

The masters of point and click are back with something that appears to not be point and click. But is just as visually striking as any of their moving paintings. Here we have Silence, which follows the adventures of young Noah...and two other people as yet unconfirmed. Promising approximately 12 hours of gameplay, set during…

Mafia III’s Official Gamescom Trailer

Today we’re pleased to present Hanger 13 and 2K Games latest released Mafia III trailer, The Heist.

Falling Out of Gamescom Season

Ahh Focus, you foxy devils you. On the one hand, you give us the grandiose, “triple AAA” blockbusters. And then there are the small, niche, gloriously pretentious “indie” titles like Swing Swing Submarine's Seasons After Fall. A 2D puzzle adventure game about a wild fox, getting to grips with his new body and generally...foxing about.…
