Join Rich as he explains what this new thing called WebTV is, checks out the launch of the Playstation Vita and heads to the London Super...
You know when your uncle tries to dance or your dad tries to rap? That’s me when I try to understand snowboarding. All the gnarly lingo and flippy floppy acrobatics look fun though, even if I’d be a danger to fashion, myself and anyone around me. Thank heaven, then, for the return of SSX.
SSX, or seriously sexy extreming or something, I dunno, it doesn’t matter, is a remake of the...
Zombies! Only joking. Resident Evil doesn’t do zombies anymore, not entirely. Ever since Resident Evil 4 in 2005, the classic zombie-reinvigorating action survival horror franchise has played down the living dead in favour of ‘infected’ people. And monsters.
In Resident Evil Revelations Jill Valentine actually uses the words ‘monster’, ‘infected’ and ‘zombie’ during the course of her dialogue. Honestly, I don’t know if I recognise this Resident Evil thing anymore.
Fancy a taste of those American comic book conventions? Or Comic Cons? Well, now you can with the first ever London Super Comic Con on February 25th and 26th – a strictly comic-book-only show dedicated to the writers and artists of the greatest comics in America. And possibly Britain.
Who is the main guest at this ‘Super’ comic con you ask? Why, it’s none other than the creator of nearly...
Well, well. Call Of Battle and Duty field, here we are again; two identical games, resting on their laurels, keeping the more blinkered among us devoted with years of £40 games we tirelessly pay for. Which came first? If you care about that kind of detail, leave.
For us normal games fans, Battlefield 3, like its more famous counterpart, the Call Of Duty series, is just a first-person shooter set in...
Here’s what I love about video games sequels: innovation. Gaming is perhaps in a unique position amongst modern entertainment in that it can improve on previous incarnations to everyone’s delight.
The Call Of Duty series has done this a lot, evolving the realistic modern shooter series beyond praise. Until recently.
Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3 is an annoying thing to keep on typing out or reading, so let’s call it MW3...
Old Man Nintendo has done it again. The dusty, gaming legend has produced yet another solid Mario Kart title. Again. Hilariously, though, it’s also really bad.
Confused? So was I. You’re going to need a quick history lesson first, get a cup of tea. Back in 1992, Nintendo, still one of the two kings of the world of gaming, the other being Sega, released a light-hearted racing title based on the...
Here’s a selection of Xbox 360 Kinect games I’ve been playing, for some reason. Yes, I know, a grown man flailing around in front of a motion sensor might seem daft, it is. It’s also a lot of fun.The Gunstringer
A superbly presented on-rails shooter about a dead puppet? Oh yes. Set in a theatre, and introduced with a very sweet little pre-amble by the game’s developers, you take on the...
Not that I’m rubbing it in, but I’ve played on the new PlayStation portable wonder-machine. Jealous? You can say ‘yes’ here.
The PS Vita, the successor to the questionably popular PSP, will be released here in the UK on 22nd February, next year. It’s a big deal because it’s the first new games console in a while, in a time where, due to the massive cost of making games, releasing a...
Do you remember 2001? What a year; it felt like the future had arrived, despite the lack of hover cars.
Lord Of The Rings and Harry Potter began their ownership of cinema goers’ hearts, Russell Crowe dominated the Oscars, we saw the launch of Wikipedia and the death of George Harrison. Fittingly, then, it was also the year Halo was released.
Halo Combat Evolved was, I’m told, a revelation in console gaming....
