Since the tease by Rockstar on Twitter yesterday, another source has come under fire from Reddit users to quash their rumour that showed a URL link in HTML code. Apparantly, the user in question just ‘inspected’ an element from a webpage and altered it to show Red Dead Retribution and has absolutely nothing to do with Rockstar.

The third instalment of the open-world gangster trilogy had a rocky start in the run up to release, with choppy frame-rates on the PC and not nearly as much buzz as publisher 2K would’ve liked, despite a heavy marketing push. But you can’t keep a good gangster down, and Mafia 3 has managed to beat Mafia 2’s week one sales record by a staggering 58.7%. However good those figures are – and developers Hangar 13 will be happy … Read More »

There’s something demonically old-school hidden in the beautiful open world island on which Jonathan Blow’s The Witness is set. Despite the first person perspective, the lushly rendered island, the enticing soundtrack and all the current gen trappings on show, this is one puzzle game that will have you scrawling notes, drawing maps, and whipping out your phone to grab a screen shot as a visual reminder. But you’d never think that from the game’s opening – a series of simple puzzles that together at the very definition of lulling into a false sense of security. As you take those early first steps … Read More »

Back in 1999, Outcast was a rare gem – an open-world Sci-Fi RPG that featured the  beautiful alien world of Adelpha and an intriguing cast of characters. Ahead of its time, the PC-only game garnered critical and commercial success, but a follow up title never materialised. Its original creators reacquired the licence from publisher Atari in 2013 and launched an HD version on Steam. Now, despite a failed kickstarter campaign, a remake of the original is heading to consoles in 2017. Outcast: Second Contact is slated for a March 2017 release, those of us who spent time with the PC original couldn’t … Read More »

Avast. Pixel Piracy is an indie side-scrolling real-time strategy video game with rogue-like elements, developed by Quadro Delta.

Pixel Piracy is from the same team that brought you Terraria and, as you can see from the gameplay video, it the same 8bit style graphics and look. Pixel Piracy has a slight twist to it, though; unlike Terraria you don’t go mining. Instead, you set out to be the best pirate of the seas, and a pixelated one at that. Pixel Piracy offers a pirate’s booty of customisation … Read More »
