XCOM 2's New DLC Adds A Dash Of Shadow Of Mordor To The Game

XCOM 2 just got its biggest DLC expansion yet, Alien Hunters. It adds three new “ruler” aliens, which function as bosses who, unlike other XCOM 2 enemies, can escape and appear in multiple battles. I was surprised to find that it’s kinda like the Nemesis system from Shadow of Mordor.


There's Already An Excellent VR Rhythm Game

Riding imaginary roller coasters and losing one’s self in immersive 360 degree environments is all well and good, but for me to truly appreciate virtual reality I needed an experience that spoke to my gaming tastes. Vive rhythm game Audioshield did the trick.


Free Sidescrolling Permadeath MMO Is Surprisingly Fun

I didn’t expect to get so into StarBreak. It’s a free-to-play sidescrolling MMO — think Contra, but with, like, 30 other people swarming around you — where every death counts. If you die, loot and stats go out the window. Despite that, it’s weirdly relaxing to play.


Three Hours With The Witcher 3's Final Expansion, Blood And Wine

Battleborn's Toughest Mission Is The Game At Its Best And Worst

What We Like (And Don't Like) About The Second Hitman Episode

This week IO Interactive released the second episode for their new Hitman game, full title Hitman 6: So You Want To Be A Hitman? After some costume changes and a few grisly murders, we decided to put our heads together to talk it out.


Alienation Is A Great Way To Kill Aliens Together

Between its flashy explosions and deep weapon customisation, the PlayStation 4’s latest co-op action role-playing game is transforming me into a ruthless alien killing machine. Want to watch?


Sailor Moon And The Curse Of The Candy Crush Saga

Released this week for iOS and Android, Sailor Moon Drops is everything you every wanted in a Sailor Moon game, as long as everything you wanted was a Candy Crush Saga clone.


Unchained χ Is A Pleasant Little Slice Of Kingdom Hearts

It may be a free-to-play mobile port of a browser-based game, but Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ crams a lot of what series fans love into a tiny space.


Ratchet & Clank Strikes A Perfect Balance Between Old And New

In the middle of my second play through of Ratchet & Clank I realised the re-imagined version had begun to infect my memories of the original, and I was OK with that.
