Does Mirror’s Edge need more or less gun action? The morning Inbox wonders why this year has seen so many E3 spoilers, as one reader celebrates the sci-fi magic of modern gaming. To join in with the discussions yourself email firstname.lastname@example.org Less is more Glad to see Mirror’s Edge Catalyst officially announced and the comments from the developer were pretty encouraging. The main problem I worry about… Read the full story Read more →
Hellblade – the psychology of violence The creators of DmC and Heavenly Sword have offered up a closer look at their new PS4 action game, and its surprisingly mature storyline. When it was first teased last year Hellblade seemed to be a Celtic-flavoured hack ‘n’ slash. It is still that, but it seems the backstory of protagonist Senua is considerably more interesting than the norm. It turns out the game has been developed in conjunction with the University of Cambridge’s Psychiatrist and Professor of Health and Neuroscience, Paul Fletcher, and in collaboration with the Wellcome Trust. Although Senua has become […] Read more →
Ratchet & Clank – now that’s a remake Sony has finally released footage of the PS4 re-imagining of Ratchet & Clank, and the graphics may just be the best on the console so far.

He’s back, and ready for more (Picture: AFP/Getty) If you were to take a microscope and examine Xbox’s DNA, you’d find something like Halo: The Master Chief Collection nestled at its heart. Their green-clad super-soldier is now indistinguishable from the brand he represents, and the fuss surrounding these re-mastered games is a reminder of the leading force this series has become. Except – and let’s have a dramatic gasp at this stage – you could argue that Halo is far past its sell-by date.

Do most UK gamers even know what this is? A reader offers his theory for why Nintendo has never been as popular in the UK as elsewhere, and why they probably never will be… I read with interest GC’s report on the sales of Grand Theft Auto V and the fact that top four selling individual games in the UK are all by Nintendo. Equally interesting was the astonishment of some readers, which I shared. Not because I didn’t know these games had done well overall but because I was surprised they had done so in Britain. The UK has […] Read more →
