Quantum Rush Champions review

The demand for futuristic combat racers is alive and well. Sadly, with Nintendo remaining tight-lipped on the prospect of another F-Zero after an eleven year hiatus and the closure of Wipeout developer Studio Liverpool (Psygnosis), the prospect of a future racer is decidedly unlikely. It is into this arena of fallen and disused giants that GameArt Studio stride with a singular purpose. Quantum Rus...

Dying Light DLC Competition extended

With all the negative press surrounding Bungie/Activisions Destiny & Red Bull exclusivity deal, many took to utilising their suffering at the hands of the community at large to promote their own game.   Most attempts fell flat, Planetside 2 in particular; given their own troubles, yet one developer has managed to find the balance that keeps it firmly in the tongue in cheek satire departme...

Elder Scrolls Online review

Good things come to those who wait. That’s what I kept telling myself when the console version of Elder Scrolls Online was delayed shortly before the official release date in April 2014.

SPACE HULK : Deathwing to show at E3

Focus Home Entertainment and Streum On Studio have teamed up to revisit one of Games Workshops most beloved board games. Built for Solo play and co-operative multiplayer where you can team up with friends to form a squad of terminators, allowing you to eliminate genestealers as a group. In my opinion it has been far too long since the seminal 1993 PC/Amiga title which scared the hell out of my 13 ...
