Written by Nolan Forth

The original Dragon's Dogma could go down as one of the most under-appreciated games of the previous console generation. The Action Role Playing Game from Capcom combined the open world mechanics of some of the best western RPGs with the crazy, over the top narrative sensibilities of the JRPG scene. Capcom just announced that they are working on a new entry in the series; a Free-to-Play online multiplayer RPG called simply…

In October we told you how Dying Light would no longer be gracing the older tech of the PS3 or Xbox 360.  At the time it was stated that the "older consoles just couldn't run the game".  Developer Techland and publisher WB Games are hoping that a new video showing off the title in action will explain to your eyeballs why...

If You Were Alive in 1987 You Have to See This Pixel Heroes Video

pixel heroes video

1987, what a year!  The Simpsons first appeared as an animated short on The Tracey Ullman Show, Canada got rid of the paper $1 bill in favour of the loonie coin and acid wash jeans were the height of fashion as popularised by Joe Penny in Jake and the Fat Man.  Well indie developers, The Bitfathers, have entered a time warp and produced perhaps the funniest 80's satire video since the launch trailer for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Read more...

If you could rewind time what would you want to redo?  For me I think top of list would be not trying to eat eight bean burritos last night.  That time warping mechanic is central to Life Is Strange as the lead character Max can hit the rewind button on her life to correct mistakes and to see...

GameFocus Feature: Warlords of Draenor and the Clint Bajakian Connection

Music can make or break a movie. The same could be said for videogames. For the last 30 some odd years, as videogames have slowly crept their way into the main stream, we have been beholden to some truly memorable musical contributions that enhance the immersive experience that make video games stand out among entertainment mediums. Imagine the classics like Super Mario without the original level 1-1 theme, or the Mega Man franchise without its awesome 8 bit power ballads. It can’t be done. The same holds true for modern games; imagine the first Mass Effect without the 80’s Sci-Fi movie synth, or Uncharted without the adventurous sounding fanfare. Music and sound design are an integral part of any complete video game package, and game expansions are no exception. Thanks to the involvement of Pyramind Studios Composer and Senior Music Manager Clint Bajakian and his team, World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor can count itself up there in the echelon of titles whose OST are worth a second look.

DLC Talk: Dishonored - The Knife of Dunwall

Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall is an impressive little bit of DLC. I should emphasize “little” though, as it is a relatively short experience. Just when the story seems to get going it ends - or, rather, it “kind of” ends.
