  • Soapbox We Need More Light-Hearted Spin-Offs Like Immortals Fenyx Rising

    C'mon, lighten up!

    AAA games love to take themselves incredibly seriously. Sometimes it works out and matches the tone of a certain title or series, but at other times, it comes across as trying a little bit too hard. To be honest, I feel like we just need more self-aware stories in AAA gaming, generally. One such example is Ubisoft's Immortals...

    And why is it Elden Ring

    Ahead of a relatively quiet fall season, we were just thinking about our favourite games of the year so far. Typically, we'd reserve this sort of discussion for later in the year, but given how front-heavy 2022 is shaping up to be — after yet more delays — we've already started thinking about GOTY contenders.

    We never got any real DLC packs for Grand Theft Auto 5, which is a crying shame given how brilliant the main story mode is.
