Grapple Of My Eye: Just Cause 3 Announced

By Adam Smith on November 11th, 2014.

Just Cause 2 is a game about gravity and grappling hooks. It’s what happens when Grand Theft Auto and Far Cry hook up, and make Saints Row the godfather to their bastard child.

By Lewie Procter on September 15th, 2011.


When is a launch trailer not a launch trailer? That’s right, kids, when the game isn’t due out for another couple of weeks. That’s the awkward situation Renegops has thrust us into: It has just came out on the consoles, but isn’t going to be gracing the PC with it’s presence until later on this month.
