Rob finally gets off his face and reviews Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. We were amazed he finished it at all. So is Brotherhood a quantic leap across the renaissance Italy skyline for the franchise, or is it a trip and fall from the rooftops, narrowly missing a stack of hay and breaking its legs on a market stall. All that and less inside!
Codemasters are back in the saddle, potentially, with their new Micro Machines-a-like Toybox Turbos. Relieve the glory days, maybe, and pretend we’re all playing Megadrives and watching Art Attack after school! Hooray.
Kim played the new Tomb Raider at Eurogamer Expo this year. Amidst an unfulfilled want to lock a butler in the fridge again, find out what she thought!
Guesty’s been hammering away at Trials Evolution this week, and as luck would have it, so has Rob! In a rare, dual-wielding extravaganza, see the comic and read the garb ALL IN ONE! Is Evolution the incomparable galavant the first one was? Or is it merely an exercise ruining that poor rider’s day? OR IS IT BOTH!!?
We hope you folks like downloading stuff; because the excellent looking Halo assemblage The Master Chief Collection is going to come with a bandwidth-creasing 20GB day one download!
Respawn returns for its SECOND ever video, this time a Let’s Play for the asylum crawling, ghost sprawling, raring, scaring, spine-chill ’em up Daylight! Carry on inside to watch Rob be unnervingly jittery when faced with lukewarm digital horrors! Hooray!
Kim gets to grips with the first episode of the time-travelling life ’em up Life is Strange! Find out what she thought in this REVIEW. Which we do actually do. I just have to get other people to do them.
We’re BACK! Hooray! But before the ceremonies begin and you get used to this fancy new layout, Rob takes a moment to SPEAK OUT, as we seemingly can’t get him to stop doing, on Gamergate, a relatively recent fiasco that has swiftly sent games industry progress thundering back around 10 years!! Hoorah! Wait… not hoorah. Jump inside and find out what we’re on about EH.
This week’s comic is orbiting bitterly around Nintendo’s 3DSXL announcement, as Guesty envisions a future where we all simply play larger versions of the same consoles. It’s horrific. Can you imagine a bigger original sized PS3. You could kill a man with it. Anyway, click to read nothing useful about Ninty’s newest. It’s BIGGER THAN YOUR HEAD.
It’s VIDEO time folks. Dive right in to watch Rob be exceedingly bad at video games. Like Mr. Kipling. Only opposite. And there’re less cakes. So it’s bad news all round really. Inside, Rob has a fleeting bash at Bioshock Infinite’s arena mode DLC Clash in the Clouds! COR.
We go HANDS ON with Turtle Rock’s co-op monster kill ’em up Evolve in this playtest of the recent alpha! What Rob be utterly feeble at video games whilst also proving he a brain made of soggy cardboard! Hooray!
The next generation is so close we can taste it! It tastes like a pavement, whatever you do, don’t try to taste it. Regardless, we’re inexcusably excited for it, and that means we get to ramble on incoherently in its name! Find out inside then why we’re NOT BOTHERED about the recent spillage of 720’s specs!
It’s time for POLITICS. Sort of. Not really. Here’s recent discussion magnet, controv-em-up Hatred and why we think this pretty despicable game’s existence is endangers the future of our beloved industry! Heck.
We make brash, nonsensical doomsday predictions about the future in a manner by which the Daily Mail have hailed ‘not too bad, keep at it and maybe we’ll make snakes of you yet’. Sort of. Jump inside and find out what Rob thinks of all the parkour in Titanfall and Dying Light and explains why it DEFINITELY spells trouble for us all! Sort of. Okay not really.
Of course, I’m playing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and of course, the balloons are my favourite bit.
We’re BACK video lovers, back with more tepid ambiguity to really try and mess up your day. Yes, following our Nekro Preview, here’s a Nekro Let’s Play, in which I fail to do anything substantial in the game! Hoorah.
Respawn in…5 at the VGAs! And by ‘at the’ we mean, ‘make Rob stay up till 3am streaming it over the interwebs!’ And I’m even aware that makes no sense whatsoever. EXCELLENT HEY! Trawl through this intensive coverage of this rollercoaster event, featuring some Oh-mazing announcements, Charlie Sheen, Hideo Kojima and MORE. Now with HIGHLIGHT TRAILERS! Hoorah.
Rob masks a desperate plea for a game based on Phillip K Dick’s mind-malfunctioning A Scanner Darkly behind some nonsensical rambling about drugs and video games and the inevitable downfall of the human race! Perfect Sunday evening reading by anybody’s standards. So long as those anybodies don’t have standards of course.
PREVIEWS. We do those too, seemingly, and here we see Rob preening about in a coloured cloak and raising some demons to do the things he can’t be bothered to do in Nekro! Find out what he thought in this, our Early Access Preview!
