on Fri, Aug 1, 2014 | By Bryan Dull

Sometimes we go to the movies to get an experience that resonates with us, other times we go to watch something we know that we’ll like and are comfortable with. Some may argue that Marvel are relying too heavily on that second criteria and that their output is getting dangerously close to becoming monotonous; we enjoy the films, but they’re not giving us anything...

If you’ve read the previous Destiny Diaries (Part 1 / Part 2) you may have formed the impression that I was on the fence about Bungie’s latest, and essentially you’d be correct. As someone who isn’t a fan of the First Person Shooter genre it was always going to struggle to win me over, and I’ll admit to being a bit sceptical about the whole...

It’s no secret that Crytek has been enduring some financial issues as of late. About a month ago, Kotaku reported that Crytek UK employees had stopped going into work due to unpaid salaries, whilst the burden of managing a multitude of regional studios across the globe has also contributed to the company’s financial woes.

Allow me to be upfront with you for a second.  Oddworld: New ‘N’ Tasty was a game I had no intention of playing.  It was only through a weird turn of events that I found myself sitting in front of the TV, solving puzzles and jumping from one platform to another. I’ve been totally ignorant of this series until now. So no, I can’t compare this to Oddworld:...

Telltale’s take on The Walking Dead has been unrelentingly bleak since its inception, and Amid The Ruins – the penultimate episode of the game’s second season – extends the trend without hesitation. Increasingly dire circumstances, more difficult choices, and an evermore uneasy group dynamic result in Amid The Ruins being one of the most intense...
