REVIEWS Titan Souls Review
Titan Souls isn't much like Dark Souls, but the Prepare to Die tagline still works.

StarDrive 2 Review
A 4X strategy game in space. Sounds like a perfect match, right?

Bloodborne's apparently successful launch (see note below) has yielded two interesting points, for me.  One is that it's being hailed as the PS4's savior (see note below) and the other is that it seems to have serious technical problems.  Conversations erupting around...

Gears of War                                                                                                                                           A third-person tactical shooter from Epic, running on the Unreal Engine 3. Gears of War thrusts gamers into a deep and harrowing story of humankind's epic battle for survival against the Locust Horde, a nightmarish race of creatures that surface from the bowels of the planet.

Unlike other shooters, Gears of War is all about teamwork in a big way. All game modes, levels and scenarios are designed specifically to encourage co-operative play, whether it be with A.I. partners or human players (with A.I. teammates designed with specific strengths, weaknesses and personalities.) On top of that, voice recognition will be available for players, and obviously voice chat to discuss strategy with your friends. In addition to voice chat, gamers will be able to experience individualized matchmaking, view player statistics, earn player achievements, customize their games, and build and personalize their gamer profiles over Xbox Live.- What we're about to admit is an unspoken truth that game reviewers don't often confess. IGN AU is reviewing Gears of War… and we haven't finished it. In fact, we're only two-thirds of the way through the campaign. But the game is so dern good that both Patch and I are trying not to hammer our way through to the credits. We've still clocked up over 15 hours of game time each, because we're milking this baby for all it's worth. The campaign experience is one to be savoured, to be enjoyed for as long as possible, as there probably won't be anything like it again for quite some time. That in itself is one of the biggest quandaries with Gears of War - it's one of those titles that arrives every couple of years and raises the bar so high that it almost spoils every game released in the following six months. Don't get us wrong, we're not saying Gears is perfect. But its annoyances are so quickly overwhelmed by the sheer brilliance of everything that it does right, you'll soon forget all about them. I love this game it is awesome!!!
