That’s it. The nominations have been made, the votes counted, and we can reveal our Game of the Year 2016. Before we do, it’s worth looking at our five nominated games, and exploring why each deserved to be on the shortlist. Each is a winner in its own right, from our Indie Game Of The Year Inside, to the game that smashed the MOBA and FPS together to revitalise both genres, Overwatch. Take a look at our shortlist. That’s the final five – three very different first person shooters, a driving game, and a platformer. So… how did you vote? In … Read More »

Bethesda Softworks, to give them their proper name, has some pretty iconic intellectual property at their disposal. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could somehow experience some of that in a new way? Well, we can, thanks to Bethesda Pinball, a collaboration between the publishing giant and Zen Studios, developer of Pinball FX2. On paper, bringing DOOM, Fallout and Skyrim to the pinball table is a masterstroke – it’s hard to think of three more visually distinct and arresting games of the last few years, and Zen Studios has a remarkable track record in delivering fun, playable and astonishingly good looking … Read More »

Bleep. Bop. Boop. Remember when video games sounded like that? Well, no more. Chiptunes dominated the mid eighties – stunning creations from only two or three channels of sound. And now, Tommy Tallarico travels the globe with an incredibly successful live show featuring classic and modern video game soundtracks performed by full orchestras. DOOM is one of the best shooters of the year – fast, frantic and frenetic, it’s been rightly lauded. But you might have missed – in the cacophony of gunfire and explosions – that it has a stunning soundtrack. That soundtrack might me about to pick up … Read More »
