2015: More LEGO than you can shake a stick at!

2015: More LEGO than you can shake a stick at!

LEGO, LEGO and yet more LEGO, that’s what the people want! At least, that’s what Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and The Lego Group think – and to be honest, they’re probably right. Denmark’s favourite toy (I’m assuming) has come a long way since its original inception back in 1958. Those multi-coloured bricks sure are awesome, and this year they’re set to become even more so with a whole slew of new video games slated for release for console, handheld and mobile platforms, including: – LEGO Jurassic World (June release for Xbox One/Xbox 360/PS4/PS3/PSVita/WiiU/Nintendo 3DS/Windows PC): Players will be able...

Preview: Idol Hands

For me, cackling gleefully to myself as I imagined all the destruction I was about to unleash, the elevator ride was a short, joyful affair. For the other occupant, Rebecca, perhaps not, given that she was riding in a confined space next to a stranger with a devilish look in his eye. I should explain. You see, those folks over at Pocket Games and Green Man Loaded have been playing God recently, and at the end of last week they invited a few of us up to the studio to join them for an hour or so to do...

Preview: Project CARS

“I know a lot about cars, man. I can look at any car’s headlights and tell you exactly which way it’s coming” The comedian Mitch Hedberg said that a while back, and I believe that – when it comes to cars, at least – my needle of knowledge most likely hovers around the same level as his. For you see, one of my deepest, darkest secrets is that I’ve never learned to drive. That’s right, while everyone else was clambering into the driver seats of their newly purchased Peugeot’s, Vauxhall’s and Volkswagen’s, I was climbing onto the couch to...

Apocalypse today and tomorrow: Dying Light release dates

Divulging the updated global launch dates for their hugely anticipated zombie-apocalyptic horror epic Dying Light, the guys at Techland also released this accompanying letter: Dear gamers, As you already know, today we detailed our launch timing for Dying Light.

Silence coming to PS4!

Silence coming to PS4!

They say silence is golden, but in this case… A few days ago Daedalic Entertainment, the guys behind games like Munin and Blackguards, announced that their newest soon-to-be-released adventure game, Silence, will also be available for PS4 owners. Huzzah! The original announcement omitted the much-loved PS4 console, but since then they’ve received the go-ahead from Sony so it’s all systems go, according to Daedalic Entertainment’s studio manager, Steffen Boos: “We now also have Sony’s approval and we’re looking forward to make Silence available to Playstation4-players. This makes Silence a fully fledged multi-platform project; for the first time, we can...

Surprise! Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns gets Expansion Announcement Trailer

The internet’s a great entity, well known for its ability to shock and awe you in both good and bad measures, and a lot of the time when you least expect it. Luckily for Guild Wars fans tuning into ArenaNet’s PAX South event via Twitch or who were at the event in person, their surprise could only have been of joy and, afterwards, of raucous applause, as ArenaNet president Mike O’Brien and game director Colin Johanson chose this particular moment to announce a number of expansion details for Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns, as well as showcase an...

Prepare to release your inner ninja, RONIN style!

Prepare to release your inner ninja, RONIN style!

Ninja-run! Ninja-jump! Ninja-slash! Ninja-er…throw-those-crazy-star-things! Apparently Tomasz Waclawek and the folks over at Devolver Digital have been training hard recently, swinging katana blades and dying every item of clothing they own black in preparation for their upcoming release, RONIN. Check out the trailer here: Coming to PC, Mac and Linux later this year, RONIN allows you to take control of a helmet wearing ninja heroine hell-bent on destroying five (presumably evil) figures that head up a (presumably bad) worldwide conglomerate.

Project CARS: Gentleman, Start. Your. Engines!

Oh yeah, work it baby. Such beautiful lines, so smooth to the touch, such great moves… Oh. Hey. Been there long? That’s right, the hugely anticipated Project CARS (what, you thought I was talking about something else?) release date is very nearly upon us (well, March, so kinda), and to get our engines growling Bandai Namco released a trailer showcasing all of Slightly Mad Studios’ hard work on the game that racers everywhere are calling (try and say this next bit faster than a Ferrari) THE next-gen racing game made by racers, for racers, that racers everywhere will love to...
