I Finally Played Overwatch

I Finally Played Overwatch

Don’t say we don’t do current affairs here at Respawn. Well, okay, you can say it. I finally got into a game I THOUGHT I’d love, on its ceremonious ‘Free Weekend’ (incidentally I played it on a Monday so). Here’s what I THOUGHT!

Did Anything Happen At Sony’s Paris Games Week Conference?

It’s PARIS GAMES WEEK. Oo-la-la, je ne suis le grande poisson etc. Here I am milling over the announcements made at Sony’s killer (or not especially killer) conference!

EGX Hands On: Honeypot Espionage

Stumbling into the EGX show hall I was greeted by Pocket Sized Hands’ Honeypot Espionage, a VIVE VR game that almost had me smashing up their monitors.

Euro-Gandering Round Eurogamer Expo 2017

I went to Eurogamer! Hooray for me. Sure it was a week ago already, but as we have long since established, I am rubbish. Here’s a little post on my thoughts about the show in general, playtest specific articles to follow!

A veritable SHED LOADS of videos make up this week’s three-day late Respawn round up; featuring the hidden Switch game NES Golf, Mario Odyssey, Sony at TGS and MORE. Get in ahead of EGX tomorrow.

VIDEO | The Philosophy of Horizon: Zero Dawn (SPOILERS)

Been hard at work on this one for a little while – have a look at the first video I’ve done in AGES (aside from Twitch) and join me in thinking about the philosophical ideas posed by the superb Horizon: Zero Dawn.

RTSFest: NEW Age of Empires, Jurassic Park and Anno

Gamescom is out of the gates, and notably, we’ve seen an influx of NEW RTS’, including, mostly, some very old names indeed. Watch all the trailers inside why not!

Sonic Mania: A Revelation in the Making

I had a lingering thought on the success of Sonic Mania and took the opportunity to ruin your day by turning it into few hundred words. Is Mania a turning point for classic game devs?

Is Xbox Live The Reason Sony Said No to Minecraft Cross Play?

Microsoft are laying down some sick burnz in the wake of Sony refusing to buddy up for Minecraft Cross Play, and with my keen intellect and poor journalism, I reckon I’ve figured out why.

You Should Play The Temple Of No Immediately

I know it’s been a while, but I’ve been very busy. Anyway, with this site’s oldest partner in crime’s wedding out of the way, I scribbled some words on my run through The Temple of No the other night. It’s great. Play it now.

Playstation Meeting: Snorefest Calls For Consoles to Become PCs

The Playstation NEO became the PS4 Pro at The Playstation Meeting, and honestly, very little else happened. Maybe we fell asleep. Are quarter-generation upgrades the new norm and does this mean consoles will go the way of the PC?

If You Were Disappointed By No Man’s Sky It’s Basically Your Own Fault

Ranty Mcranterson right here. People seem to consider No Man’s Sky some sort of personal affront, when it’s actually just someone’s creative endeavour they worked themselves to death over. And that’s not on.

No Man’s Patch: A No Man’s Sky Pre-Launch Linger

Initial impressions, and what that dirty great and entirely CONTROVS patch did in our first hastily splurged No Man’s Sky post! Dive in.

Pokemon Go is Currently Making Me Feel Very Alone

I’ve not been playing Pokemon Go, which isn’t an alarming revelation as to why it’s making me feel alone, seeing that everybody else on the planet is. Its popularity sure is something to awe at though; join me and give this babbling a quick glance why not!

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Review

With 1,2 and 3 down it’s finally time to Nathan Drake all the way to the finish line with Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. Did the new gen iteration stand up to the test of a hardware leap? Did Rob fall asleep before the end? Find out alll this and less in the review!

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection Review

I finally played all the Uncharteds. I know. What a shock. This is probably the fastest I’ve ever finished three games in a row. Smush the link and listen to babble on about them for a bit eh.

Doom Beta in Review

I wrote this a week ago, and even then it was about two weeks late. I saw DOOM was due for release this Friday, no less, so figured I better tell you about my short, intoxicated battle with its weekend Beta.

Grow Home: A Time Machine for Not-Quite Yesteryear

Grow Home: A Time Machine for Not-Quite Yesteryear

I played Grow Home quite a while ago now, but here I am, many weeks later, trying with a breathless, unhinged enthusiasm, to explain why it felt like a PS2 game in the very best way.

Stanley Parable Designer Releases New Game, It’s Free, Wonderful

The Stanley Parable designer William Pugh has put out another game. It’s brilliant and free and everything you are not. Play it now. Drink it in. Improve your life.
