Have You Played… Batman Vengeance?

I don’t want to go on about my age here - it makes certain members of the team a bit annoyed - but Batman Vengeance came out when I was 7, nearly 8, years old. It’s a game I remember fondly playing with my dad at a computer that looked a lot like a microwave, getting stuck trying to traverse corners, and making a very…

10 PC games we’re still looking forward to in 2018

As we stare into the weary, craggy face of the final quarter of 2018, there is still a glimmer of hope. The games are not yet done. They will never be done. And the impending release of them, some close, some a little further away, stirs something within us. The delicate, easily crushed butterfly of excitement. We may catch it yet, to keep in our…

Rather than hold your hand as you…

Rainbow Six Siege Clash: what she can do and how to use her

Rainbow Six Siege Maverick: what he can do and how to use him

You can fight with For Honor’s Chinese warriors in an ‘open test’ next week, even if you don’t own the game

"It does not matter how slowly you go," said Confucius, "so long as you do not stop adding stuff to For Honor." It's a good thing Ubisoft have always been keen followers of eastern philosophy. Despite its problems, they refused to stop working on the Vikings v Knights v Samurai brawler. We heard at E3 that the upcoming Marching Fire expansion will add four new…

Far Cry 5’s final, zombie-themed DLC lurches into view on August 28th

While Far Cry 5 was a solid open-world shooter (if you could switch your brain off whenever it tried delivering another wave of plot), Ubisoft just haven't been sticking the landing on the DLC. The first two thirds of the season pass - a Vietnam war themed expansion, and a mission into pulp sci-fi territory on Mars - just haven't lived up to their concept,…

Rainbow Six Siege teases Operation Grim Sky and its upcoming Operators

Tactical wall-smasher Rainbow Six Siege is going stereotypically British for its next update. Not only is the Hereford Base map getting a makover, complete with "high chance of rain", Operation Grim Sky brings us a London cop Defender to play as. Presumably because our island is so underwhelming, they'be balancing out all the rain and gloom with an American Attacker, fresh from the dusty streets of…

Rainbow Six Siege Mute: what he can do and how to use him
