There are usually two types of players that play chess. Those that do and play seriously, taking an eternity to make their move. Then you have the players who know how to play, but rarely play but when they do, it's all just for fun.

If you're unfamiliar with the rules of Chess, this title has an expansive tutorial mode which not only explain the rules, but lets you partake allowing you to remember ... Read More »

Cuphead, first announced back in 2015 at E3 had us expecting a release that year. However, as time went on and nary a whisper of its release, the developers told us that they had the backing of Microsoft, allowing them to push their art style, refine the game and add a wealth of features to the game and gave us a release date of 2016. The year flew by with hardly anything new to be told about the game, but now we're at the halfway mark of 2017 and according to Xbox UK's twitter account, they've finally given us a ... Read More »
The first collection released almost two years ago, and fans felt somewhat underwhelmed by the collection, considering it only included just the Megaman games from the NES era, leading some fans to believe more collections were on their way. Today, Capcom has finally announced that Megaman Legacy Collection 2 will be heading to Xbox One on 8th August, which will include four more Megaman games that span consoles from the SNES to Saturn; Megaman 7 through to 10. While the amount of Megaman games is less than its predecessor, the quality of the later titles are superior. The collection will ... Read More »
Italian developers LKA bring a unique horror puzzler in the form of The Town of Light, relying on storytelling and thought-provoking material to pull you through the experience. "If you think you have psychological problems, please speak to a local doctor or specialist" is the opening disclaimer before you start the game. One might think that this disclaimer is an unnecessary one, considering many titles that come before it involve an abundance of violence without relevant disclaimers, but the more you start to experience this title, the more you realise why this is needed. Experience being the key word here, as ... Read More »
According to an album posted on Imgur, a Life is Strange prequel may very well be in the works but not by original developers Dontnod, but by developers Deck Nine Games. A screenshot was found on Deck Nine Games' official website but was removed shortly after. If rumour has it, the prequel will focus on protagonists Rachel and Chloe from the original Life is Strange title, perhaps outlining the events of how they met and become good friends? Below are the leaked screenshots to the game in development, but doesn't give away too much as to what the story is ... Read More »
Guacamelee developers Creative Bytes introduces an original way to navigate around the levels in this platform-puzzler but does Embers of Mirrim try too hard? Although there is no narrative other than the initial tutorial instructions, the cut scenes give you the general gist of the story which sees a couple of creatures; that could only be described as cats with antlers, from opposite factions - light and dark, merging together to become one entity with the power to split itself into two embers: that being light and dark. As you progress through the beginning levels, the game will slowly introduce ... Read More »
Canadian developers Digital Extremes hit success with their free-to-play title Warframe, some comparing it to the likes of Destiny. Warframe has come along way since its initial launch, having had countless updates and additions to the game - all completely free; if you set aside the micro-transactions for more cosmetic items. Today, they've announced the next project that they're working on, Keystone, and it looks like it's already well under way through development as they are offering you the chance to sign up for their closed alpha - so still quite some time away from an actual launch of the ...
