TrackMania Turbo Review

Ever wanted to defy the laws of gravity and preform stunts you can only dream of doing? TrackMania Turbo will fulfill that desire. This incredibly popular PC franchise makes its way to console for the first time. Ubisoft announced an Xbox port at E3 in 2015, then delayed it just a few months later when everyone was getting ready for the game to land. Happily for racing fans the game is now out with an offering on par with its PC brethren. Trackmania Turbo is all about speed. Insane amounts of ridiculous, blistering speed. It’s a time attack racer, competing with your … Read More »

As we near the one month mark of The Division, Update 1.1 is already on the horizon. Today (31/3/16) our loving community manager for the game, Hamish Bode, took us through what we can expect from the biggest update to the game yet.

Enigmatis: The Ghosts Of Maple Creek

Are you ready for this spine chilling title Can you imagine waking up in the middle of a road dazed and confused, you struggle to open your eyes and get to your senses.

Minecraft Story Mode’s Episode 5 is Out Now

The fifth episode in Telltale Games’ Minecraft Story Mode, is now available for download. And thus concludes the mainline story mode. Sort of. If you thought that’s the end of the story, go ahead and have a re-think. Episode 5, ‘Order Up!’, spins the game’s narrative in a whole new direction – upwards into the clouds of Sky City. ‘Order Up!’ will act as a bridge, and a teaser, for three new eps that are, of course, not covered by the season pass. Rather than offering full closure to hero Jesse’s story, Telltale have opted to deliver these new episodes … Read More »

Overwatch Dev Update

Yesterday we posted about two recent changes to Blizzard’s Overwatch due to age-appropriate material and views, HERE. Well, the discussion continues following the decision to remove main character Tracer’s “over-the-shoulder” pose, from Jeff Kaplan (Game Director) earlier in the week. We want *everyone* to feel strong and heroic in our community. The last thing we want to do is make someone feel uncomfortable, under-appreciated or misrepresented. Apologies and we’ll continue to try to do better. As a recap, Tracer is a female character with one of her optional poses being under scrutiny to possibly sexualise the character and, though the opinion of each … Read More »
