Ever Oasis review

There's a curiously old-fashioned feel to Ever Oasis - though perhaps not so curious when you realise it's been made by Grezzo, the studio hitherto best known for its 3DS remakes of Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask, and led by Secret of Mana director Koichi Ishii. Show More Summary

Hearthstone's next expansion will make acquiring new cards a lot easier

Hearthstone's next expansion will alter the entire game, making it a lot easier to acquire new cards.

Meet the dev making a Switch game in a Hounslow Costa Coffee

It is, without a doubt, one of the strangest places I've ever been to visit a developer. Out towards the extremities of the Piccadilly line, where the hum of the underground is met by the muted thunder of planes coming into land at Heathrow, and then out beyond for a long, grey walk along the edges of the A4 where traffic rolls past.

Valve's upcoming VR controller tracks all of your fingers

Back in February I saw a prototype of Valve's upcoming VR controller and now the full design has been revealed.

How Call of Duty: WW2's Headquarters was inspired by World of Warcraft's Orgrimmar
