  • News Warhammer 40K: Darktide Gets PC Game Pass Date, But Fans Still Desperate For Xbox News

    "Updates on Xbox release....pretty please?"

    There was a little bit of confusion when the latest November 2022 Xbox Game Pass titles were announced, with Warhammer 40,000: Darktide being confirmed for PC Game Pass on November 30th - but with no sign of Xbox. If you haven't been keeping track, the reason for this is because the console version was...

  • Review Evil West - Action-Packed Wild West Horror Let Down By Dull Design And Weak Narrative

    From Dusk Til Yawn

    Flying Hog Games, we think it's probably fair to say, has a bit of a marmite aspect to its back catalogue. Between Trek to Yomi, which we actually quite liked, and the multiple instalments of the ridiculously shallow Shadow Warrior series, this is a studio whose work you kinda either gel with or don't. It's brash, it's brutal,...
