Poll: Are You Hyped for Gamescom 2018?

Gamescom was once thought of as Europe’s equivalent of E3, and given the size of the annual event we suppose that still holds true to some extent, but it feels like the Cologne-based convention has fallen off the radar just a tad over the last few years — at least in terms of hype. It’s also worth mentioning that Sony used to hold its own Gamescom press conference, but largely due to the event’s proximity to E3, the Japanese giant dropped the idea. Gamescom 2018 kicks off next week anyway,…

Soapbox: 1979 Revolution: Black Friday Honours the Past with a Political Deep Dive

During the late 1970s, Iran underwent a radical transformation as continuous protesting managed to overthrow Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi, the last Shah of a monumental 2500 year long reign by the Persian monarchy. 1979 Revolution: Black Friday puts you in the midst of those demonstrations, and it’s an experience that is both important and fascinating for those with a historical and political interest. Similar in structure to a Telltale game, the title is all about its narrative. Dialogue choices are aplenty, quick-time events are in abundance, and actual gameplay is fairly…

Layers of Fear Dev Teasing New Game, Project Méliès

We rather liked Bloober Team’s trippy horror game Layers of Fear, but we were less taken with its cyberpunk follow-up, Observer. At the very least, the developer comes up with some interesting settings and narratives for its creepy titles, and its next game looks to continue that trend. Project Méliès is a working title for the studio’s latest, and as you can see from the two teasers, it appears to adopt an old fashioned film vibe. Particularly in the below video, the presentation gives it the appearance of a black…

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is getting some promising changes based on beta feedback

Treyarch has outlined changes coming to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 based on feedback to the recent beta – and a lot of them sound promising. First up we have a nerf to the controversial body armour gear item. As I’ve reported before, one aspect of Black Ops 4 that was universally criticised by players, many of whom wanted it pulled from the game entirely, was body armour. The complaint revolved around Black Ops 4’s “Time to Kill” being too long. Call of Duty is known for being a…

Review: F1 2018 (PS4)

Codemasters’ newest instalment in its celebrated F1 franchise is finally here, promising high-speed thrills, new modes and improved racing mechanics. Essentially, however, F1 2018 is a polished version of F1 2017. Last season’s effort already impressed, but small changes to the 2018 instalment have elevated the game to the most lifelike Formula One experience to date. For instance, better utilisation of the rumble feature throughout races has an impact on your driving style. Now road textures and the grip of your tires on the road can always be gauged through…
