The Skylanders franchise is back with Imaginators, offering up a create-your-own hero alongside a new mystical power and a new way for Kaos to prove himself a fool. In this iteration, you’ll harness the mystical power of imagination. Kaos is

I’d like to think that I single-handedly saved Just Dance 2017. I’m a huge fan of the franchise, but loathed 2016 — it seemed like a half-baked cash grab. One year on, and all the best bits of Just Dance are back

A new FAQ, alongside social media, has answered a bunch of questions surrounding Microsoft’s new Xbox Game Pass subscription service. First, the scheme won’t be worldwide at launch. Instead, Microsoft has confirmed that Xbox Game Pass will be available in

THQ Nordic today celebrates the removal of Red Faction II from a listing of banned video games in Germany. Red Faction II joins the original Red Faction as playable games in the country after both titles were delisted from the Federal Department for Media Harmful

Phil Spencer is all kinds of cool. As I entered the Shangri-La’s Grand Apartment, with sweeping views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House, the Head of Xbox was tinkling the ivories on an equally grand piano. The song?

Review: Far Cry 3

In a market seemingly populated entirely by macho men shooters, Far Cry 3 is a mature breath of fresh air, not only for game design and innovation, but also for the series in which it takes place. Right from the get-go, Far

Not to make any fun of my Australian brethren, but the “Aussie” way of pronouncing the third word in Activision’s cash cow franchise’s title is almost literal; “doody”. Despite having a two in the title, Black Ops II is in fact

I recently had a chance to trial the latest build of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, far different than the last that I’d played at E3. Whilst I commented last time that Revengeance feels like a Metal Gear title — albeit

Review: L.A. Noire

The hot: MotionScan? It’s awesome, I’ll give it that. Team Bondi (and to be fair, everyone associated with the game, credited or not), has done a brilliant job mapping real actors’ facial expressions to their in-game counterparts. I was worried

Review: Alan Wake

Like Stephen King? Twin Peaks? If so, you’ll love Alan Wake – the game ITSELF even tells you that! Quite literally, the words “Stephen King” are the first you’ll hear in the game and they immediately set the tone of
