PIRATES, card games, magic and mystery. There isn’t much more I could ask for in the latest installment of Bethesda’s sprawling MMO The Elder Scrolls Online (ESO). After getting hands-on with the upcoming High Isle expansion, I can safely say that it’s shaping up to be a wonderful, brand new adventure through Tamriel. Before we jump in, it’s worth mentioning that I play ESO like I would any other Elder Scrolls title; alone, constantly chasing side quests and eager to follow the storyline of every new area I stumble across. I also very recently made my way through Blackwood, the…

ROAMING around the abandoned streets of Tokyo, exorcising otherworldly ‘visitors’ and petting adorable critters along the way make it very easy to fall in love with Ghostwire: Tokyo. But an abrupt ending and a reliance on familiar open-world mechanics hold the game back from reaching its fullest potential. Let’s start from the beginning. Ghostwire: Tokyo has been developed by Tango Gameworks and published by Bethesda for PlayStation 5 and PC (I reviewed the PS5 version). As the game opens, you are introduced to KK; a now dead ghost hunter, searching for a body to possess so that he can exact…

PREVIEW

I don’t typically enjoy the spooky side of entertainment. I scare easily and I cry a lot, which isn’t the best combination when it comes to games with even the slightest horror bent. So, when I first watched the trailers for Ghostwire: Tokyo, I was sure I could put it in my “probably too creepy, don’t worry about it” basket. After checking out a hands-off preview of the game, I am delighted to report that it instead belongs in my “creepy in the cool way that excites me” basket (yes, I have one). Ghostwire: Tokyo revolves around Akito, a man…

I have never played a Battlefield game before. So jumping into my first match of Battlefield 2042 alone was both disastrous and terrifying. Sure, I’ve played shooters before, but this was a different beast. The maps are massive and the player count is too. But with the help of some good friends and one mighty Legion 7i, it didn’t take long for me to find my feet and feel like the coolest kid on the battlefield. Me feeling like the coolest kid ever in Battlefield 2042 with the Legion 7i Laptop. Before we continue, I need to disclose something very…

Sometimes you feel like jumping into a big, new fancy game. Other times, all you want to do is indulge in the nostalgia of your favourite games from the past. Fortunately, Xbox Game Pass offers both, but that can make choosing what to play next incredibly overwhelming.As a semi-professional video game enjoyer, I’ve played and reviewed my fair share of games (and have a growing list of games I can’t wait to try!) on Xbox Game Pass. Because making decisions is hard enough, I’ve put together a list of some of my favourites to help you choose what to play…

After six years worth of quarterly major updates, Rainbow Six: Siege has changed a lot since its original release. Given the long lifespan of the game, Siege can be understandably overwhelming. Yet Operation High Calibre feels different. After a hands-on preview, I walked away with a sense that the Year 6 Season 4 update will be the perfect time for new and returning players (like myself) to become better acquainted with the game. Before I get into why the reworked content feels so refreshing and welcoming, let’s talk about the shiny new operator. Operation High Calibre introduces us to Thorn;…

I was 20 years old the first time I tried a multiplayer game. Before that I had been far too busy diving into whatever open-world, narrative-driven experience I could play on my much beloved consoles. I also didn’t have any friends in my life that played games, so I had no reason to pay extra to play unfamiliar games with unfamiliar people online. But then I became the proud owner of a gaming laptop, opening up a limitless world of possibilities in uncharted online worlds. So naturally the first game I installed was Rainbow Six: Siege. To those not in…
