Total War: Rome II Preview [E3 2013]

Total War: Rome II Preview [E3 2013]

Thinking about it, I’ve played a pretty mixed selection of Total War titles. Thanks to the various peaks and troughs of what my various PCs of the time could handle, I’ve played the first Shogun,…

Saints Row 4 Preview [E3 2013]

I’m starting to wonder, on and off, if maybe Saints Row has finally gone too far. I don’t mean in terms of it being ridiculous. Aliens? Superpowers? Dubstep guns? The Boss as the president of…

Thief Preview [E3 2013]

I’m worried. Moreso than perhaps any other game series, I want a new Thief to be flawless. I’m the sort of irritating Thief nerd who knows how to find all the hidden rooms in Constantine’s…

Batman: Arkham Origins Preview [E3 2013]

The ethos at work in Warner Bros. Games Montreal with regards to Batman: Arkham Origins appears to be “evolution, not revolution.” Plenty were worried when it was announced that Rocksteady wouldn’t be handling the latest…

Grid 2 Preview

Grid 2 Preview

Resident Evil: Revelations Preview

The idea, presumably, is to win back the hearts of those who feel a bit scorned by recent Resident Evil games. From Resi 4 onwards, the series has devoted far more time to action (and…

Sanctum 2 Preview

I played a lot of Sanctum. According to Steam, I’ve spent just over 48 hours with the original FPS/tower defence hybrid – almost all of it in two-player co-op – and there aren’t that many…

Company of Heroes 2 Preview
