God Of War 4, And Why It's Time To Kill Off Kratos

You must have heard by now. Word on the grapevine is that God of War is swapping out a loin cloth for hide trousers, sandals for boots and the Blades of Chaos for axes, and heading north to desecrate the world of Norse mythology.


Why People Love Persona

How many games do you know that manage to combine Jungian psychology, Japanese school-life and urban legends? Just like me, the Persona series isn’t as popular in the West as Final Fantasy, but it’s been around just as long (since 1987), and is arguably much more interesting.

Video games are amazing, because you can be anyone or anything in the universe: A blue hedgehog! A ghost! A unicorn with rocket launchers!

American Truck Simulator Impressions: I Nearly Crashed Into A Bus

I’m falling asleep at the wheel. I’ve been driving for 16 hours straight, hauling freight across the border between Nevada and California. Yawning, my eyes briefly flutter shut and I lose sight of the road. My eyes flick open and I straighten up my lorry.


Seven Public Domain Books That Would Make Great Games

Once a work enters the public domain, it is no longer subject to copyright laws. A publisher can print their own edition of the Beatrix Potter books, a filmmaker can make a film of any of Shakespeare’s plays, and a game developer can adapt any of the characters, scenes or even whole stories from public domain works.


Our Favourite Games From December

December — a time for sun, Doctor Who Christmas specials, and slow game releases. But slow doesn’t mean we didn’t come across anything worth checking out. And so, below is what we played and liked in December.


I Still Love My Kinect

In a home filled with technological marvels of all shapes and sizes, one piece of oft-derided hardware gets more love from my family and I than any other. Kinect, tell the nice people how much I cherish you.
