Grand Theft Auto V Lands on The New Generation Tomorrow – Are You In?

Grand Theft Auto V Lands on The New Generation Tomorrow – Are You In?

Tomorrow is a big day in the world of the new generation machines. They’be both been selling by the bucketload, but apart from Halo: The Master Chief Collection and (a botched) DriveClub, they’ve been lacking on any exclusive title to set them apart with re-releases like The Last of Us Remastered making up the numbers. As we march our way through November, we are going to see if Grand Theft Auto V will bring the remaining few old-gen gamers over to the new world.

The Evil Within Gets New Trailer At Tokyo Game Show

Horror games. You either love them, or you hate them. Me, personally I love them. That intense feeling you get that at any moment something… anything could happen, it really makes my arms tingle with adrenaline. Undoubtedly I will jump out my seat at any slight sign of movement, any noise, or even at my own shadow, but that’s what makes horror games fun. The Evil Within looks like a horror game that I would enjoy a lot.

Our Week In Games – Week 87

Our Week In Games – Week 87

Fresh back from a weeks holiday I feel as if my gaming interests have been reinvigorated. I bought a ton of games in the Steam sale and look forward to playing them all over the next… five years. In fact recently I’ve almost completely abandoned console gaming in place of hours on end of Spelunky and some multiplayer PC games, which just goes to show that the recent crop of game releases really hasn’t grabbed my attention quite as much as I thought it would. Thinking ahead the only two console games I’m remotely interested in are The Witcher 3 and Forza Horizon 2, while I’m spoilt for choice right now on PC. Oh how the times are changing.

Are achievements spoiling your enjoyment of games?

Are achievements spoiling your enjoyment of games?

There used to be a time when I loved the unique chime that sounded as an achievement popped, a time when I would battle through a game on the hardest settings just to hear it ring out and feel the sense of accomplishment as X amount of gamerscore accumulated into my total. Alas, the novelty of achievements have long since passed me by an now they serve only to annoy and distract me from immersion in a game.

Editor’s Blog – Chris on the Console Generations

The next generation of consoles is here at last, well at least it is the US with the PlayStation 4 going on sale yesterday. Over the next few weeks, us lucky Brits will see Sony’s machine and the Xbox One from Microsoft launch. I was in Game in Cardiff a few nights past and saw the new look shelves heralding the imminent arrival of the new machines.

It made me think about the generation which is now the old-gen. The humble Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 are but things of a bygone era now. In reality they will still be fairly important to gamers and the industry for a year or so yet as people wait for the inevitable price cuts or a wider range of titles to launch.
