This Week in Gaming News: No More Tales to Tell

Alex Aldridge
What a week it’s been in video game news, eh? Scandal, announcements, reveals, trailers, a terrible paid online service from you-know-who – it’s all happened. There is genuinely no better pressure writing this column than having to choose what to omit. I’ll take too much news over scraping the barrel...

Alex Aldridge

Gamescom 2018 Hands-on: ‘Resident Evil 2’ Could Be the Definitive Resi Experience

Alex Aldridge
For some reason, it seems Capcom really didn’t want anyone to play Resident Evil 2 at Gamescom. Hidden away in the corner of the Xbox area, the game was near-impossible to find and, once you did, you could expect the longest queue of the entire convention. Having played the demo,...

Gamescom 2018 Hands-on: ‘Darksiders 3’ Has (Hopefully) More to Offer

Alex Aldridge
