Feature: But does it do enough to stand out from the crowd?

Speedlink’s Orios is a small mouse that plays a big RGB game

For a small, streamlined gaming mouse, the Speedlink Orios sure knows how to announce itself. Replete with RGBs around the side of the mouse, scroll wheel and rear logo, this rainbow infused clicker is almost as much a sight for the eyes as the holey Glorious Model O-. Indeed, with its slender frame and weight of 95g, the Speedlink Orios definitely leans more toward that…

5 reasons why Reach is the best Halo game

I can’t help but love Halo. It’s one of the few things that lodged firmly enough in my teenage heart to build itself a permanent nest there, and it still comes and goes freely, even though the iron gate of age has barred so much else from getting in. Ever since 2001, when I saved to buy an OG Xbox purely for the sake of…

How Katana Zero brought action into cutscenes

When a game’s cutscene begins and the dialogue starts spooling, I can’t help it. My phone comes out and I’m scrolling. From being active I’ve suddenly become passive, and rather than stay engaged, my brain impulsively turns to Twitter, Reddit, anything, to feed its pathetic desire for reward through light interaction. But I don’t during Katana Zero’s cutscenes. When this action game halts its razor-fine…

Dead Cells first paid DLC will let you get tossed by mushroom men

You can be killed by many things in run 'n' stab roguelike Dead Cells. There are pirate captains, football-sized assassins and horrible worms. There are robots that summon corpse flies, and skeletons in hats that turn into knife tornadoes. If you spend $5 on Dead Cells' first whack of paid DLC this January, you can also be chucked at spiky walls by mushroom men. They're…

Have You Played… Action 52?

I guess Action 52 is a PC game, in the same way that a furious drunk forcing a hand through your letterbox at 3am is a house guest. I mean, it was a game, of sorts, and I certainly played it on a PC, so that’ll do, right? Usually with these pieces, I’ll open up a couple of tabs in my browser and do some…

Phoenix Point review

Please stay in your seats if, at times during this review, you notice a presence in the shadows. Don’t be alarmed, in fact, should you notice a silhouette wearing a suit and tie - he’s just here to make his influence known. And if he seems familiar, there's a good reason: the council of XCOM looms over Phoenix Point, and they won’t let you forget…

Phoenix Point guide – 20 tips for new players and XCOM veterans alike

From Julian Gollop, creator of the original X-COM, comes a new turn-based tactics game which tasks players with reviving the defunct Phoenix Project to save humanity after the emergence of a deadly alien virus that mutates human and animal alike to wipe out all of humankind. Gripping stuff, and also very challenging - which should come as no surprise…

How to recruit new soldiers in Phoenix Point – a guide to expanding your army

Phoenix Point puts you in charge of the near-defunct Phoenix Project - an organisation meant to kickstart the recuperation of mankind after the emergence of the deadly Pandoravirus. But to do that, you'll need recruits - and the game really doesn't explain the recruitment process all that well. But hopefully this quick guide will explain to all the newer players how to recruit new soldiers…

How to capture enemies in Phoenix Point – a guide to capturing live Pandorans for research

One of the many things that Phoenix Point doesn't do a great job of explaining is the process of capturing live Pandorans. Many of the research projects available to you are locked until you have the correct Pandoran specimen contained and ready for dissection - but how do you actually go about making this happen? This guide will explain exactly how to capture enemies in…

Corsair’s Glaive RGB Pro mouse chops the Nightsword in two, but fails to match the mighty Ironclaw

Of the fourteen gaming mice that have swished across my desk this year, six of them have been made by Corsair. With the Glaive RGB Pro, that number rises to seven - which is, frankly, a ridiculous number of mice to release within the space of twelve months, and way more variations on a theme than is perhaps strictly necessary. Some have been great -…

AOC’s 24G2U is another best budget gaming monitor champion

AOC's C24G1 is an excellent gaming monitor for those on a budget, but for those of you who prefer flat screens as opposed to curved ones, then the AOC 24G2U is definitely the monitor for you. This 24in, 1920x1080, 144Hz, AMD FreeSync screen shares many of the same specs as the C24G1, but comes with a flat, even more accurate IPS panel instead of a…
