Dovetail Games Flight School – Preview

Dovetail Games Flight School – Preview

Let me first preface this piece by explaining my background with flight simulators. I played Microsoft Flight Simulator ’98 back in the day, I had an absolute blast…but wasn’t actually any good at flying the planes. Since then, my flying experience has mainly come from the Battlefield games, along with a dabble in things like Tom Clancy’s HAWX. What does that all mean? If you are a die-hard flight simulator fan, this isn’t the article for you as I won’t be talking about how accurate the plane models are or other details like that, but please feel free to laugh at my flying “skills” in the videos!

Walking Through Brooklyn – An Hour With The Division

Walking Through Brooklyn – An Hour With The Division

In something of a surprise, even to myself, I found that I was playing The Division briefly on the weekend. I was surprised, because I truly didn’t expect that I would be playing any, or many, of the AAA releases of the past week or so until the autumn at the earliest. But I spied The Division on Steam, and I just couldn’t help myself. I had to get a taste of what this possible Destiny beater was all about and squeezed in about an hour with the game, and took in the sights and sounds of Brooklyn.

Rainbow Six: Siege – Thoughts

Rainbow Six: Siege – Thoughts

Back in October, I got stuck into the Beta for Rainbow Six: Siege and thoroughly enjoyed it. There was a limited range of maps to play through, but I could already tell that this was shaping up to be a very good shooter. Now that I’ve had a chance with the full game, I am happy to confirm that Siege is a very good shooter, but one that needs to find its feet.

Black Ops 3 – Beta Impressions

Black Ops 3 – Beta Impressions

I spent much of the past weekend playing the Call of Duty: Black Ops III multiplayer Beta on the PlayStation 4. While the Beta is launching on the Xbox One and PC at the moment, I just want to share some of my early thoughts of the game. Hit the break, and let’s begin.

Clearing The Backlog – The Crew

Clearing The Backlog – The Crew

Take a pinch of the multitudinous number of activities found in Burnout Paradise, a slice of story (a rarity for driving games) like Driver: San Francisco and a dollop of open-world antics from Fuel. Mix those elements all together and finish off with a topping of Test Drive Unlimited and classic Ubisoft open-world traits and you are left with The Crew.

Don’t Give Up On Project CARS

Don’t Give Up On Project CARS

Have you picked up Project CARS this past week, looking forward to a racer which can challenge the hegemony of Gran Turismo and Forza? Have you started to play with a gamepad and found everything extremely frustrating to drive? Have no fear and don’t give up on it just yet. This is my tale.

Thoughts From Someone Who Didn’t Go To Rezzed

Thoughts From Someone Who Didn’t Go To Rezzed

I didn’t make it to Rezzed this year, there are only so many game shows any one man can make in the year, and only so many trips to London any one man can afford to make in a year. However, I was keeping a close eye on the event via Twitter, and these are some thoughts on three indie games that featured strongly…

Correcting my Game of the Year

Correcting my Game of the Year

When we wrote our Games of the Year pieces back last year, I wrote openly and honestly about the games that I had loved from last year. However, as is to be expected, I didn’t play every game, or even every AAA title, that was released last year. Since then though, I’ve had the chance to revisit a title which would have appeared at the top of my list – Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Watch_Dogs – Our (Early) Thoughts

Watch_Dogs – Our (Early) Thoughts

The game known as Watch Dogs but which really is called Watch underscore Dogs came out last week. Jon is working on a Verdict for the coming few weeks, but right now we are ready to deliver some of our early thoughts on the game across both PC and PlayStation 4. Read on…

Europa Universalis IV – The Verdict

Europa Universalis IV – The Verdict

I never thought I would find myself yearning to play more Europa Universalis but when I realise that I haven’t played it for a few weeks I find myself itching to get back to it. An Editor’s note here: this Verdict has been waiting to be published since before the Eurogamer Expo, trade shows are time-sinks just as much as Europa is.

Eurogamer Expo – Viiiiiiiiiiiitaaaaaaa!

Eurogamer Expo – Viiiiiiiiiiiitaaaaaaa!

Earlier this year I sold my PlayStation Vita to a friend at work. I reasoned that I wasn’t playing it at all, the money would come in handy and it would be better off with someone who might use it. After having digested some of what I saw at the Eurogamer Expo, I can safely say that I will be looking to buy a Vita again quite soon.
