The Division

The Division review

It’s Christmas! Although you wouldn’t want to be in the shoes of the poor citizens of Manhattan in this winter wonderland as there’s a touch of something called dollar flu going around that’s resulted in the city being locked down.

A bright future for Dark

Kalypso Media have just launched this a trailer for their forthcoming 3rd-person futuristic RPG – Dark.

Combat is nicked straight from Gears of War....

The Club

No questions. Gears of War and Uncharted reinforced this further. In fact, if you didn’t pop out from behind a plank to shoot your opponents you’d go down in a hail of gunfire. The Club turns this idea completely on its head and turns a shooting game into a racing game at the same time. Just as well as the developers are...
