• The reveal of Metal Gear Solid 2 at E3 2000, prior to the system’s Western launch, was the turning point in the fledgling system’s fortunes. The sequel was referred to as Metal Gear Solid III or MGSIII – the roman numerals referencing the New York skyline. Metal Gear is also about freedom within a linear framework and nothing illustrates this better than the tanker sequence in MGS2.

  • This week, inspired by Telltale’s new Guardians of the Galaxy game and its non Chris Pratt Star Lord, we’ve been thinking about the times the developers of movie games don’t have permission to use a star’s likeness in their game. Consider these times videogames did just that, with mixed (that is, mostly rubbish) results. Also on the menu this week are FPS games, particularly those from that glorious, bizarre era of gaming, the 1990s. Watch on for our favourite weird genre relics from that deeply

  • Gary became the first professional football commentator in Britain to commentate on a live FIFA eSports competition after heading out to Lithuania to get behind the mic at an event. The first time I found out who Gary was and that he had worked on a FIFA tournament was in March 2017. In fact, it took a major incident in the world of football to bring Gary towards the eSports world. “The only difference [between FIFA and football commentary] was I was allowed to talk about what the gamers themsel

  • Shadow resolution is also dialled back, but otherwise the look of the game stands up very well to the PS4 version. While both games target 30fps, only the PS4 version delivers it with rock-solid consistency. The last-gen game often misses its performance target leading to obvious screen-tearing in almost every scene. The result is a game that just doesn’t feel quite as fluid as the PS4 version, which to all intents and purposes is a 1080p remaster of its last-gen sibling. It plays fine, but if y

  • There’s a long inglorious tradition of cannibalism in video games, from the many flesh-eaters of the Dark Souls series through the “strange meats” of Fallout to the gaping cosmic horror that is Kirby. Cannibalism also has its advantages in Sunless Sea, Failbetter’s delightfully horrid naval exploration game. Set in World War-era London, Dontnod’s forthcoming Vampyr takes a sterner tack than Sunless Sea, paying you back in subtle ways for each NPC you devour. As to why cannibalism has become more

  • Invisible, Inc. is one of those games I’ve been meaning to play ever since it came out. Everyone I know who’s played it through is a committed enthusiast (hello Oli Welsh) and yet I never got round to booting it up. Turns out everybody was right – Invisible, Inc. is a terrific turn based strategy game, even if it’s the kind of game that seems specifically tailored to make me nervous. Chris told me off camera that Invisible, Inc. was very nearly called Incognita, after the helpful A.I. I think I

  • Minimalist platformer N++ just got a massive free update on Steam that doubles the amount of content in the game. This patch is so big that developer Metanet Software decided to rename the whole game as N++ Ultimate Edition. This free expansion doubles the game’s scope, bringing the final product to a whopping 4340 levels. Metanet noted in a Steam update that it considered charging for this massive upgrade, but ultimately decided that wouldn’t help the install base grow. As for N++ players on PS

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has received a lot of accolades over its open-ended structure and unique physics engine. Flint creates fire, fire creates wind, and water douses fire. But there is one good thing about the rain in Hyrule: it has an adverse effect on the flaming one-eyed bat known as the Fire Keese. In this clip by Redditor pkbronsonb we see the precipitation extinguish the Fire Keese’s flaming wings. What one might not anticipate is that if you keep the Fire Keese flapping
