Brenda Romero versus the systems of pain

Tucked between two shelves at the offices of Romero Games, Ltd in Galway, Ireland is a two-by-two-foot cube of black Plexiglass, mounted on a platform and lit from below. I picture it as a miniature of the alien monolith that appears during the prologue to 2001: Space Odyssey, looming over the bustle of a designer's office. Show More Summary

Searching for a video game hero

My favourite moment in Twin Peaks - I've just finished rewatching the first two series in readiness, and I cannot believe I am typing this, for the arrival of the third - is the start of episode one, season two. That groaning soundtrack kicks in and we're back at the Great Northern Hotel. Show More Summary

Watch: Johnny plays Darksiders for the first time, gets the horn

With Darksiders 3 now being confirmed as an actual, real thing that's happening, we thought it'd be a good time for Johnny to give the original game a spin. He's not crazy about horses but he does like big swords and so our odds on him liking it were about 50/50. Show More Summary

Don't expect other non-Blizzard games on its platform

Last night's announcement that Destiny 2 on PC would be sold and played via Blizzard's online gaming platform raised a few eyebrows. Since the launch of Battle.net in 1996, Blizzard has only ever used its platform to facilitate its own games, from Diablo to World of Warcraft, to Overwatch. Show More Summary

Destiny 2's PC version will launch after console

Destiny 2 will launch on PC after its console PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions. The news emerged from post-reveal event interviews last night, and takes just a little of the shine off of what was otherwise a well-received unveiling. Show More Summary

Hands-on with Destiny 2 - a fun and familiar experience

After two hours playing Destiny 2 at its reveal event in Los Angeles yesterday, I can confidently say this: Bungie's sequel is a lot of fun to play, but it does feel very familiar. It feels great, too, which will be no surprise to anyone who spent time with the first game. Show More Summary

Old Man's Journey review

Old Man's Journey feels a lot like a children's book - one of those beautiful ones, with huge illustrations brightly printed on decent paper. The kind a certain kind of person might not really want to read with actual children, who would spill things, crease things, crayon all over things. Show More Summary

Bungie has just wrapped up its Destiny 2 reveal livestream, which showed off an ambitious-looking new story campaign led by a cast of familiar faces.

An unexpected pleasure in recent years has been the resurgence of Fire Emblem in the west, Intelligent Systems' fantasy tactical RPG making the unlikely crossover from exquisite curio to Nintendo staple. This 3DS offering, coming late...Show More Summary

Destiny 2 PC exclusive to Blizzard's Battle.net

Destiny 2's livestream reveal ended on a big surprise (if you didn't see the leaks on reddit earlier) - the game's PC version will be exclusive to Blizzard's Battle.net app. That's right - not Steam, or anything else. It makes sense, in a way - Activision Blizzard are part of the same company - but it's still a first for an Activision franchise. Read more…

Our friends at Rock, Paper, Shotgun are hiring

I'm sure you well aware of our sister PC gaming site Rock, Paper, Shotgun - it's been part of the Gamer Network family for years, and has just recently been fully acquired by the company. This means that we get to chant "one of us, one of us" at them now, but also that our company can invest more in the site so it can do more stuff. Show More Summary

Vive launching a new VR headset that doesn't need a PC or phone

HTC Vive has announced a new standalone virtual reality headset for 2017 that will operate without a PC or inserted phone. In other words, the machinery is inside the headset. It's described as "lightweight" by the marketing blurb, and as "standalone VR", which is what you'll be doing with it on your head so it makes sense. Show More Summary
