Bubble Bobble 4 Friends is a four-player update, for the Nintendo Switch, of the classic Taito arcade platformer. Harking back to a simper time, before eye-bleeding 3D graphics and visceral explosions became the gaming norm, Bubble Bobble, the precursor to Taito’s later classics like Rainbow Islands and New Zealand Story, had a charm that left an impression on everyone that played it.

Skullcandy’s Push wireless Bluetooth earbuds add another offering for users in an increasingly crowded market. I’m not a regular user of earbuds, but I’ve got to say, with the number of wireless earbuds out there, there’s really no reason to have wires hanging from your ears anymore. Indeed, my Huawei phone doesn’t even have a headphone socket. Continue reading Hands-on review: Skullcandy Push wireless earbuds
With Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts CI Games have taken a leaf out of Hitman’s playbook abandoning the open-world of the last game in favour of a series of well-realised environments.
As fun as past Sniper: Ghost Warrior games are, finely polished works, they are not. Fortunately, CI have pulled out the stops with Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts to give us a game that can stand head-and-shoulders with similar contemporary first-person-shooters. Continue reading Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts PC review
Frontier Developments continue to prove themselves to be the masters of the real-time park management genre with Planet Zoo.
Having cut their park management teeth reinvigorating the Rollercoaster Tycoon series for Atari, back in the day, the Cambridge-based outfit, probably best known for the revered Elite series of space-trading games, have gone from strength to strength. Continue reading Planet Zoo PC review
Good, responsive equipment is an essential tool for any serious PC gamer. It extends beyond just having a fast gaming rig. If you want any chance of winning a good keyboard and mouse is a must.
HyperX have stepped up offering a range of keyboard and mouse solutions aimed at the more discerning gamer. Their RGB Alloy Origins keyboards and Pulsefire Dart mice claim to be exactly what gamers need. I put them both through their paces, below. Continue reading HyperX Alloy Origins mechanical keyboard and Pulsefire Dart wireless mouse review
EA Games has a lot riding on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Their use of what is a premium movie licence has not exactly produced stellar results. Whilst Star Wars: Battlefront 2 was a vast improvement on the first game, it still had its issues.
For Fallen Order, EA have conscripted Respawn Entertainment (Apex Legends/Titanfall) to produce a single-player focused Star Wars game. No strangers to narrative video-games, Respawn, being made up from veterans from the Call of Duty series, are an inspired choice to create this new chapter in the (canon) Star Wars mythos.

Read Dead Redemption 2 released last year on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to critical acclaim. As full-on Wild West simulator, the level of detail and the depth of the game was a bit too much for some players. The action, whilst intense, is punctuated by long dialogue-heavy journeys on horseback, and less bombastic tasks such as hunting and crafting.
PC owners, somewhat more attuned to this level of deep gameplay experience have had to wait all this time to get their hands on a game that, if I’m honest, seems like it was made for PC. It’s a shame that the last game never made the leap from console to PC as, even now, the original Red Dead Redemption still holds up as an Xbox One Enhanced title. Continue reading Read Dead Redemption 2 PC review
Just in time for the new Star Wars Game from EA, Seagate have released their Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Xbox One Game Drive.
The cynic in me believes that no storage solution says, “I’m probably paying too much for this” than a Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Xbox One Game Drive. And that’s probably true. If you are a Star Wars fan, however, Seagate’s Jedi Fallen Order Game Drive is the extra storage that you’ve been looking for.
