Latest Podcast: Episode 178 – Cyberflunk 2077
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”. It is in that vein that they have brought us their next title – Beyond: Two Souls. Read more…

Review: PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate HD

Since the launch of the PlayStation Vita there has been a plethora of fantastic games released which are perfect for the system. Platformers, shooters and action-adventure games have all made an appearance but there is a genre which suits the handheld like a glove but has been neglected: Tower Defense. Luckily the wait is over my fellow TD fans because PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate HD is here to scratch your itch. Read more…

Review: Skylanders SWAP Force

Seeing this review hit the rack here at DBG, you may be wondering what’s going on here? Why is DBG doing a review on what is seemingly a kids game? I could give you a diatribe about the future of gaming, mixing kick-ass figurines into our adult games and the like – but really that’d just be a load of BS to fill the pages. Read more…

Review – Black Ops 2 Uprising DLC

It seems like only last week that Revolution was released, and everyone was in the throes of hammering out challenges for the Peacekeeper, diving through toppled, gravity-confused skyscrapers in Die Rise, and hunting the sole human in Turned mode, apart from wiping out the entire population of Earth on Hydro, Downhill, Grind, and Mirage. As it turns out, that was right at the very end of February, and with a nice 2-month time period for gamers to pay up, blast some more people/zombies, and eventually go somewhere else, Activision and Treyarch have given us the second of four DLC releases for Black Ops 2. Now, I hear you asking “How does Uprising compare to Revolution?” and to answer that particular question, I offer one response – keep reading!

Review – Sim City

Arguably one of the best-known titles in gaming for many years, the new instalment proved its’ popularity with server hiccups upon release — the biggest ruckus on social media since Diablo III launched in 2012.  Launch problems aside, the popular city building title plays different to its predecessors and is an overall charming little package.  Sim City – the fifth instalment, is here.  At the time of publication, it seems to now be working fine too!

Reader Review – Bioshock Infinite

The next game in the Bioshock franchise is here and having played and loved the first one I had my standards set high and could not be more excited in the lead up. Irrational Games are back in the drivers seat for Bioshock Infinite unlike Bioshock 2 which was developed by 2K Marin, and so it is much more of a spiritual successor to the original game, Visit Cozino games for mmore fun.

Review – Crysis 3

Back in 2007 the gaming world went mad. There was some new game which was pushing visual and technical boundaries that were leagues ahead of any other games on the market at the time. This game was Crysis, and for its day it looked and functioned phenomenally, thanks to the proprietary engine developed by Crytek known as CryEngine. Read more…

Review – Far Cry 3

Imagine living the ultimate dream life. You’re rich, on a vacation with your equally rich friends and you’re indulging in more substances than you probably should. It doesn’t matter though because you’re young, right? Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, your plane crashed and you’ve been captured by some downright INSANE pirates. Your name is Jason Brody and this is your life. Read more…
