The Apex Legends Grand Soirée lacks for wholesome bonding activities

The Apex Legends Grand Soirée has arrived, and it's all a tad familiar. Yes, the trailer pleasingly revealed Pathfinder's true nature as a Teletubby. But planned events for the two weeks include 'fighting at night' and 'fighting with shotguns and sniper rifles'. This is a perfectly acceptable use of people's time, but it's also a missed opportunity for Respawn to peel back the masks behind…

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order lightsaber colors guide – how to get double bladed lightsaber

Lightsaber combat in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is amazing. That said, you may be disappointed with the lack of lightsaber color choice at first. To begin with, you only get the choice of green or blue lightsaber colors (or orange if you pre-ordered the game). The rest of the lightsaber colors are found later in the game. Sadly can't have a red one, those…

Apex Legends’ Grand Soirée has begun, inviting players to its biggest party yet

The party has started in Apex Legends as the Grand Soirée Arcade Event began last night. For the next two weeks, Respawn are treating us to seven different rotating game modes and pretty new skins to make sure each of the Legends (and even some of your guns) are dressed to impress. I played a bit of Apex last night and jumped into the first…

They're all part of Apex's Grand Soirée, an Art Deco-themed arcade event arriving on the 14th of January that boasts fancy…

For the second year running, the Glaad awards look like they’re missing the mark on celebrating queer representation

Glaad (formerly known as the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) have brought their media awards back for the 31st year, and for the second year in a row they're recognising video games "for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community and the issues that affect their lives". Last year, Jay Castello wrote about how these video…

Ten minutes of soothing grappling is exactly what you need right now

Oh, to see the sky like Mokeysniper. He's a YouTuber I've mentioned before, whose claim to fame is being really really good at grapple hooks. I'm reminding you about him because a few days ago he uploaded a ten-minute compilation of fabulous swinging in Apex Legends and Titanfall 2, complete with sublime transitions between the two. It's his goodbye to 2019.

A guide to enjoying Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order when the game isn’t being very enjoyable

Writing guides about a game usually means playing a rather disgusting number of hours of said game every day, until the sight of it compels you to dry-heave over a keyboard whose WASD keys have long since worn away. I remember, for example, a point where I realised that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order had been out for 100 hours, and I'd spent 60 of…

The Apex Legends Christmas event kicked off over the weekend, and nothing says Christmas like a train full of blood sports. Mirage is hosting an Xmas bash, only instead of trading gifts they don't need, guests are invited to shoot each other while vying for control of a festive train. It's round-based, with the train routinely making stops so teams can ambush each other. It's…

The 5 best and worst things about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

The Star War is the only thing I have been playing outside of work for weeks now. I am becoming intimately familiar with its workings: the push and pull combat, and also of the Force Push and Force Pull powers. It is a brilliant game that I love, but that I also find full of contradictions. Here are my five best and worst things about…

Can’t Stop Playing – Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order

Let's not pretend that Star Wars isn't good. Answer me this: if Star Wars isn't good, how come they got away with having BB-8 branded oranges?? Less reliably good are the official Star Wars video games. Despite throwing out some absolute bangers in the LucasArts days, or stone cold classics like Knights Of The Old Republic giving us big Force energy, the more recent quality…

Apex Legends will soon let you tuck into more Apex Packs

Apex Legends has failed to adequately expand its repertoire of bird-based disasters. That's got nothing to do with the news, which is that they're about to start throwing more Apex Packs at everyone. I'm just annoyed and astonished that my calls to action have gone ignored, apart from the addition of a fabulous skydiving emote that I'll never own because there's still no way I'm…

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Grandmaster difficulty – tips on beating Fallen Order at the highest difficulty level

Luckily, I do know the game intimately, and I've put together the below Star…

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order bosses – How to win every single boss fight in Fallen Order

The myriad Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order bosses and minibosses are the moments where the game truly shines.
