Latest Podcast: Episode 136 – The Woes Of Online
Review – Beyond: Two Souls

The subject of video games as an art has been debated since the late 1980’s, and it has been picking up steam over the past ten years. French developer Quantic Dream have positioned themselves firmly on one side of the debate, with their games Fahrenheit and Heavy Rain being largely considered “interactive films”.

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception

The Uncharted franchise has been a powerhouse for Sony ever since the original Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune was released back in 2007.
