I love exploring games that I have no previous experiences with, it is like a loot filled chest with everything you always wanted or something you never knew you always wanted, but sometimes that chest grows teeth and starts chasing you and you run away from that chest promising yourself never...
I remember me and my nephew, celebrating a winter holiday at my grandpas house, with a NES and Double Dragon rented from the local video shop. It might have been the greatest weekend of my life. And here we are, I am now a grown man with kids of my own and playing Double Dragon 4 on my...
Yakuza is a series of games that I have always had a love hate relationship towards. But with the latest release, Yakuza 0 I am leaning towards love way more than I have ever before
For nearly 30 years Civilization has plagued our gaming world, people have lost time, sleep and not to mention been frustrated, yet in love with a game so simple yet so incredible deep and time demanding it is sometimes hard to see how this game can be sold at a regular price and not a yearly...
I have always been a huge fan of the stealth-based game genre, and Dishonored was one of my favourite games the year it released. It played through it numerous times with different experiences each time and with the release of Dishonored 2 I was overexcited to once again see what this series...
The Elder Scrolls is one of my top game series of all time, as with most fans I started my love for the series with the release of Oblivion but has since then gone back and played Morrowind. So when Skyrim was announced I was beyond excited and here we are, years later and I am reviewing one of...
It is time for a new Call of Duty, love it or hate it but it is still one of the most successful franchise in gaming history and you can never take that away from them. And speaking of love and hate, there has always been those feeling whenever you speak on a new Call of Duty release as you...
I remember playing Call of Duty on Playstation 3, and how amazed I was at the visuals for this game. I remember thinking that this would be it, this would be the greatest FPS game ever created, and even though many years have passed since my brain worked like that, the Call of Duty franchise...
Whenever I am tasked with reviewing a game mainly focused on kids I turn to my own kids, hand them the controllers and just sit back and take notes. Not only what I myself see but how the experience make them feel and how easy it is for them to interact with the game. But whenever a huge...
What if you took Minecraft and the beloved Dragon Quest universe and mixed them all into one brand new experience? It would probably be the greatest game ever created right? Well, to fans of both games it might be considered that but to anyone the slightest interested in either of the two this...
As a lifelong fan of wrestling dating all the way back to the late 80s when I used to watch wrestling with my grandfather (without my mother knowing it seeing as it was seen upon as real back then) I have tried to withhold my love for the entertainment, but lately my love is slowly dying and...
It is time to return to one of the most talked about games in recent history, we are of course talking about Destiny. Now the name of the game will either bring excitement to you as soon as you hear it or it will bring frustration and annoyance, luckily for me I have always enjoyed Destiny and...
Have you ever dreamt about being a stealthy burglar? And also being the main character in a Guy Ritchie move? Well Filthy Lucre is as close you'll probably ever get without breaking the law or being that weird guy on the film-set that nobody invited..
Mount & Blade: Warband is a stand-alone expansion to the previously released Mount & Blade, and it introduces a new faction, increase political options, giving players the ability to start new factions and brings on-board the ability for multiplayer. Now all of this released on the PC...

‘Fallout 4’ delivers the best ever launch week for the series while becoming the third biggest launch of 2015 so far. Bethesda’s second No1 of the year (The Elder Scrolls Online was the other) is behind only the familiar faces of ‘Fifa 16’ and ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops III’ for debut week unit sales
Fallout 4, is generating record sales at retail outlets and via digital download for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Bethesda launched with approximately 12 million units worldwide to meet day one demand, representing sales in excess of $750 million. The collector’s edition, the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition, sold out within hours of its announced availability
It’s a fantastic return for the series bettering the debut sales of previous week one best seller ‘Fallout: New Vegas’ by 213%. ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops III’ (-57%) makes way for the newly crowned champion dropping to No2. ‘Fifa 16’ (+10%) also drops down a place despite a boost fuelled in part by high sales of the Xbox One Fifa 16 hardware bundle. Lara Croft returns as ‘Rise of the Tomb Raider’ debuts at No4 for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
With Microsoft securing a timed exclusive for the title sales lean heavily toward Xbox One with 85% over Xbox 360’s 15% share. Telltale Games’ ‘Minecraft Story Mode’ (+6%) climbs a place to No5 and delivers impressive week on week growth over its debut launch figure in its third week. EA’s ‘Need for Speed’ (-62%) drops three places to No6 in its second week. Sega’s ‘Football Manager 2016’ for PC lands at No7 just ahead of a resurgent ‘Lego Dimensions’ (+49%), which climbs a place to No8 thanks to retailer promotions.
Former chart toppers ‘Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate’ (-39%) and ‘Halo 5: Guardians’ (-50%) are down to No9 and No10 in their fourth and third weeks on the All Formats Chart. Elsewhere in the Top 40 another PC title makes its mark with Blizzard’s ‘StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void’ landing at No23.
