My Game of the Year: Deus Ex: Human Revolution

My Game of the Year: Deus Ex: Human Revolution 

Another year, another RPG. I clearly have a soft spot here. Human Revolution was a prequel to the “once you mention it someone will install it” Deus Ex, frequently voted one of the top PC games of all time. Huge shoes to fill but for Eidos Montreal’s debut game they certainly hit the mark.

My Game of the Year: Sonic Generations

My Game of the Year: Sonic Generations 

There are many qualities necessary for a game to qualify as one well-worth playing or a heralded ‘must-have’: its graphics, plot, music, not forgetting the all-important gameplay. A good game can do one of these partially well, a great game should arguably do this and more, potentially excelling or doing that which few others have.

My Game of the Year: Dead Space 2

My Game of the Year: Dead Space 2 

With all of the high profile titles that released throughout this year, and 2011 coming to a close, it’s easy to forget that Dead Space 2 came out in January. The astounding volume of games has made it feel like ages since players stepped into the boots of Isaac Clarke, so conversations often turn to the vast nature of Skyrim, or the sheer insanity presented in Saints Row: The Third. While most of them are fantastic creations that deserve acclaim and attention, I feel it’s important to take a trip […]

Review: Metal Gear Solid HD Collection

Review: Metal Gear Solid HD Collection 

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is the definitive version for both Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3.

However, there are many of you who have never had the opportunity to sneak through Shadow Moses, chow down on a snake or battle a walking tank capable of shooting nuclear missiles. For the newcomers, these two magnificent gems […]

The Problem with PunkBuster

The Problem with PunkBuster 

When I booted up Battlefield 3 for the first time, I was very impressed by the level of polish present. Despite its browser-based setup, the interface was incredibly fluid and easy to navigate, and I found myself awestruck at how simple it was to complete basic functions like joining a friend or finding a game.
