There’s something deeply nostalgic about top down scrolling shooter games. You could say the genre was born from a fabled forefather; Space Invaders. In the last four decades, there have been some truly outstanding titles, and some that are best left untouched. Thankfully however, Sky Force Anniversary is the former. For those unaware, Sky Force started life as a mobile game and its first major release came on iOS in 2009. However, this is the first game in the series to come to Xbox. Starting out you are given a basic, but moderately powerful, ship to blast your way through enemies with. ... Read More »

Peter Molyneux, the former Lionhead Studios boss has spoken out about his desire to develop Fable 4. Speaking recently with GamesRadar, Molyneux was asked outright if he believed there would be a fourth entry into the main Fable series. He responded saying;"It’s crazy that Fable 4 isn’t being made, I would love to do Fable 4, and the studio tried to do it. You’d have to get the original team back together though." Of course the story of the next entry in the series has been previously put to bed after Lionheads closure this year. This followed the cancellation of Fable: Legends, ... Read More »

Creative director Mac Walters said; we’ve designed the IP in such a way that they can all show up, for hopefully obvious reasons, they’re not all going to show up in the first game.” You will still be able ...

It’s not every day you load up a new game and the first task asked of you is to ‘poke’ a sheep. But that’s exactly how Clouds and Sheep 2 begins.

When it comes to Clouds and Sheep 2, the results are somewhat mixed. Developed ... Read More »

The latest all format charts have today been released, which has seen a very respectable entry for Watch Dogs 2, at number two. But so far, Dedsec have failed to infiltrate the number one position. Holding top spot, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare continues to dominate in sales. Mostly no doubt down to the legacy edition which features a remaster of Modern Warfare. A large number of pre Black Friday discounts could also have helped the next installment in the franchise retain top position. A respectable entry for Assassins Creed: The Ezio Collection, which only released on Friday, enters at ... Read More »
