Every single game publisher will advertise it’s products as “great”, “amazing” or “innovative”, but more often than not, that’s not the case. There’s an immense amount of video games that don’t live up to the hype, and I’m going to try to signal out five unreleased games that are very likely to underwhelm in 2014. Wolfenstein: The New Order The Wolfenstein series has been around forever. id Software basically invented First Person Shooters with the release of Wolfenstein 3D...

One of the main points of criticism coming away from the Nintendo Switch presentation last week was the pricing of upcoming software — and indeed peripherals — to the system. Or at least the pricing strategy Nintendo were adopting when it came to the UK. And with a non-bundled Switch requiring players to fork over £280 (which works out, at the time of writing, at around $346, nearly $50 more than its US price), it was certainly asking of some to pay an additional £60 ($74) for the likes o...

April is here (no joke, really), and with it come some new titles for Playstation Plus subscribers, as well as Xbox Games with Gold members. Up until now, the Playstation Plus offerings pretty much stomped anything Microsoft has been offering, but this month, both consoles give out some decent enough games.
