Far Cry 5

Far Cry games have long followed an established formula: throw the player into a distinct setting, include a charismatic antagonist, and populate the area with lots of fun activities to do. This has served the series well so far, with previous the games having been […]

Metal Gear Survive

Metal Gear Survive was a game sent wandering into a minefield. It could’ve been anywhere from horrendous to wonderful and still been received as a vile perversion either way. And that’s exactly what’s happened. I won’t argue that Konami doesn’t deserve to be vilified as […]

A Way Out

When Josef Fares gave his legendary rant at last year’s Game Awards, I knew I had to play A Way Out. I was already interested to see what the guy behind Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons did next, but Josef’s raw passion for his […]
