Kratos and his son, Atreus, continue their adventures across the nine realms of Norse mythology in God of War Ragnarök, the highly anticipated follow-up to the long-running series’ 2018 soft reboot. Continue reading God of War Ragnarök PlayStation 5 review
WB Games Montreal, developers of Batman: Arkham Origins, return to the Dark Knight Detective’s hometown with Gotham Knights.
Batman is dead, killed during a fight with one of his deadliest enemies, Ra’s al Ghul, in the opening moments of the game. This is a polarising introduction that is likely to upset fans of the Batman: Arkham games expecting a continuation of the Rocksteady Studios franchise. Continue reading Gotham Knights PC review
Supermassive Games’ The Dark Pictures Anthology reaches its season finale with The Devil in Me. I got to spend an hour or so with the upcoming horror game.
The Devil in Me is the fourth title in The Dark Pictures Anthology. The series of games are presented in a manner very similar of that of a TV show, like Alfred Hitchcock Presents. They mainly employ psychological horror to portray events that may, or may not, be supernatural. Continue reading The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me PC preview
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, as is the way with most of the games in the long-running first-person shooter franchise, is split into two parts. First, there’s the cinematic single-player campaign, and the competitive multiplayer modes. Activision provided me early access to the campaign for a review.
This is probably the most ambitious Call of Duty campaign in years. It’s also the most unforgiving, and that may be a problem for some players. Continue reading Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 campaign PC review

God of War Ragnarök is almost upon us. I’ve been playing a preview of the new PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 game and what follows are some of my early impressions of the first few hours of the game.
To the uninitiated, God of War Ragnarök is the latest game in a franchise that goes all the way back to the PlayStation 2. There were known for their button-mashing combat and, later in the series, their huge set pieces. The games follow Kratos, a former Spartan soldier tricked by Ares into killing his family. The original games up to the fourth main game in the series, 2013’s God of War Ascension, had Kratos seeking revenge on the Greek gods of Mount Olympus.

Intel has released its new flagship desktop CPU, the Core i9-13900K. Boasting 24 cores and 32 threads with a maximum boost clock of 5.80 GHz, does this new processor have the chops across productivity, creative, and gaming applications? We take a look.
Unlike last year’s Alder Lake CPUs, it’s not all change this year. Intel’s Raptor Lake CPUs use the LGA1700 socket introduced with the 12th-generation chips. The 13th gen CPUs also work with Z600-series motherboards, although you may need to update the BIOS for the new generation of CPUs. Raptor Lake supports both DDR4 and DDR5. All-in-all, they are pretty upgrade-friendly CPUs, especially if you are thinking of transitioning from, say, a 12th-gen i5 to a 13th-gen 19. Continue reading Intel 13th Generation “Raptor Lake” Core i9-13900K review
Hello Games continues to go from strength to strength shoehorning their epic space game, No Man’s Sky, into the tiny Nintendo Switch.
Nintendo’s Switch continues to surprise me with the huge games that the tiny device can accommodate. First Bethesda stuffed the massive world of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim into the portable console, and then CD Projekt RED did the same with their open-world fantasy game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Now, with No Man’s Sky, Hello Games have gone and squeezed an entire universe into the Switch. Continue reading No Man’s Sky Nintendo Switch review
