Finished Elden Ring but never played Dark Souls? Now’s the time

If your business with the Erdtree is finished, it’s time to return to the roots. So, you’ve finally completed Elden Ring. After dozens of deaths to every one one of dozens of bosses. After untold moments where that infernal golden tree looks like it’s just over the brow of the next hill only for you to get waylaid up a mountain – or for a whole new land to emerge between you and your goal – your beautiful, arduous journey is over. The completion of a From Software game can be a strange time, the initial elation of victory fading…

The Elder Scrolls 6 should have the charm of Oblivion, not just the scale of Skyrim

Bethesda’s long-running fantasy RPG series should allow itself to be sillier – and more colourful! – moving forward. By Azura, is The Elder Scrolls 6 far away! With Starfield set to arrive near the end of the year, the sixth main entry in Bethesda’s iconic saga might as well not exist right now. Of course, we’re not short on massive open worlds – especially now that SSDs are taking over and rewriting what can be done when it comes to level design – but you just can’t fill that Skyrim-shaped hole, can you? What makes The Elder Scrolls so captivating?…

Dragon’s Dogma is the perfect game to play before Elden Ring

Playing Capcom’s most underrated action RPG might help us better understand (and wait for) From Software’s newest. It’s wild to think Elden Ring is almost here. With hype reaching all-time highs and diehard FromSoft fanatics crawling up the walls in anticipation, it might be time to consider revisiting (or trying out for the first time) an overlooked game that could help us better understand the Lands Between. Dragon’s Dogma, initially released back in 2012, was jointly directed by Devil May Cry veteran Hideaki Itsuno and Monster Hunter’s Kento Kinoshita, and it shows: there was a really strong focus on hack-and-slash…

Grand Theft Auto units sales exceed 370 million, GTA 5 sales exceed 160 million units

15 years later, Crackdown is still more magical than any of its try-hard follow-ups

Despite some iterations to the formula and some experiments with massive celebrity cameos, neither Crackdown sequel could harness the chaotic energy of that first game. I have a theory that a lot of games try too hard. Crackdown is not one of those games. Crackdown knows that it’s ridiculous. It has a story that wouldn’t look out of place in a ’80s action film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. You’re a biologically-enhanced agent and, eh, I don’t know… There are some bad guys and crime lords and stuff. Just kill them all. Like an ’80s action film, you haven’t come here for…
