Assassin’s Creed Syndicate – Grappling Hooks, Trains and No Multiplayer!
On Monday 11th Ubisoft revealed an exciting trailer for their forth coming instalment to the Assassin’s Creed franchise, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. The announcement was made during a scheduled live stream from Ubisoft Quebec, titled Assassin’s Creed Syndicate World Premiere Event. Set in London on the verge of the Industrial Revolution in 1868, the game puts players in the role of twins Jacob and Evie Frye. They find themselves caught up... 

ZombiU Review

ZombiU Review
  It’s the dead of night, nothing but the faint glow of the Prepper Pad and my dying torch to light the way. I check my backpack, glancing up periodically to scout for potential threats. No flares, no ammo — just my cricket bat. I don’t fancy my chances against the three shambling creatures obstructing my path, especially in such an enclosed space. Hoping to manoeuvre around them, I make a run for it. Bad move. One of them manages... 

Nintendo Land Review

Nintendo Land Review
When the Wii U launched in North America the more expensive of its two bundles came with Nintendo Land. Japan will have a similar situation when the Wii U launches there early next month. While it’s not the only bundled game Nintendo is offering in the UK (you can also get a bundle with ZombiU), it’s clear that Nintendo expects a lot of consumers to be picking up this game when they buy their system. As such, many comparisons have been... 

Tank! Tank! Tank! Review

Tank! Tank! Tank! Review
There are games that focus on telling a carefully crafted and emotionally impactful story, taking us across the world making friends and defeating those who risk harming the ones we love. Tank! Tank! Tank! isn’t one of those games. Tank! Tank! Tank! (hereby shortened to TTT because it’s a nightmare to type) is a game that says “Screw story, lets take a tank and blow up some giant robots.” It’s a great idea, and does something... 

Introducing the Wii U to the Casual Crowd

Introducing the Wii U to the Casual Crowd
I’m obsessed with Nintendo! I make no excuses for it! They’ve been behind some of the most influential games I’ve played, the ones that made me seek a career involving video games in the first place. I’m the kind of obsessed fan that spent four hours watching a Wii U live stream last week, then pressed play and watched it all over again just to see if I missed anything. I’ve got a stupidly large collection of Nintendo... 

Aliens: Colonial Marines Multiplayer Preview at London MCM Expo

Aliens: Colonial Marines Multiplayer Preview at London MCM Expo
Coming out in Febuary 2013, Aliens: Colonial Marines is one of the most anticipated third person shooters on the horizon. I was able to sit down with a group of fellow gamers to play through one of the game’s multiplayer deathmatch modes. We were the marines, the developers were the Aliens and the battle was on. While the Aliens were fast moving, agile and able to run on the walls and ceilings with ease, as the marines we started off as sitting... 

Halo 4 Multiplayer Preview

Halo 4 Multiplayer Preview
This weekend’s MCM Expo has been host to several unreleased games, but perhaps the one with the largest queue of people waiting to get their hands on it was Halo 4. Along with the multiplayer deathmatch mode called Slayer, which was available for the public to play, I’ve been able to get my hands on several of the game’s other multiplayer modes. Slayer is the series’ traditional multiplayer deathmatch. It’s as much as you... 

Aliens: Colonial Marines multiplayer preview

Aliens: Colonial Marines multiplayer preview
Gearbox Software’s Aliens: Colonial Marines is based on the film Aliens, in which the Colonial Marines face off against the now iconic Xenomorph alien species on the satellite LV-426. The preview mode available was team Deathmatch and sees a group of marines go up against a group of Xenomorphs in a battle for survival. Both teams come with very different abilities, and because of this, very different play styles are required to win depending... 

Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise Hands On Preview

Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise Hands On Preview
Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise (known in North America as Rhythm Heaven Fever) is a Wii music rhythm game developed by Nintendo and TNX. The third in the Rhythm Heaven series, it comes out in Europe on July 6th. The game uses a clear and crisp 2D art style which makes the most of the Wii‘s graphical abilities. While the game may not have the resolution of games on an HD console, in my time playing the game it didn’t matter. What the... 

Inversion preview

Inversion preview
Inversion is a game that few people I speak to have heard or know much about, but I have no doubt that this will all change in the coming weeks when the amazing shooter hits consoles with a gravity-defying bang! Going back to play Inversion for a second time led to me falling in love with the game all over again. The single player story sees aliens (at least I assume they’re aliens) known as the Lutadores invade the city and take over with their...
