  • Is Shenmue 3 kung-fu Animal Crossing?

    Shenmue 3 is set in a sunny village and features, among other things, turtle racing, wood chopping, and kung-fu; it looks really cool... and maybe slightly boring?

  • The Outer Worlds video review

    The Outer Worlds is a spacefaring action-RPG from Obsidian, filled with shooting, talking, colourful planets, and corporate satire. It's really good.

  • Death Stranding video review

    Death Stranding is a bizarre traversal, stealthy, horror, open-world game from Hideo Kojima. It's indulgent and some of the writing is very clunky indeed, but it's also beautiful and presents a rich, atmospheric world, with some excellent acting.

  • Neo Cab video review

    Neo Cab is a captivating exploration of a cyberpunk city, not including the pretty visuals and ambient synth soundtrack. Its satellite stories are gripping, even if the core narrative feels like a detour.

  • What The Golf? is the best golf game if you hate golf

    Do you absolutely despise golf? Well, have I got the golf game for you! What The Golf? is fun, physics-based nonsense where you hit things towards a flag. All of them aren't balls, as Colm discovered here, and you will after you watch it.

  • Code Vein is Dark Souls-y, but anime and not as good

    Josh was looking forward to the vampiric Souls-like, Code Vein, and whilst he's been having fun with it, some of the swords and hairstyles have been bothering him. He needs to tell someone, so thank god that Colm is here.
