Even more video game adaptations are on the way, folks! Sony has confirmed that it will be adapting three of its biggest gaming properties, the Horizon series, God of War and Grand Turismo, into TV shows. As first reported by IGN, a God of War series will be making its way to Amazon, while an adaptation of the Horizon games will be a Netflix production.

Doctor Strange 2 Review: Definite madness, not enough multiverse

The multiverse takes centre stage... but does it really? Director Sam Raimi brings to life the multiverse in a dark and thought-provoking fashion. The iconic horror (and superhero!) director employs great artistic direction, paired with committed performances from its stellar cast, to form the crux of the heart and soul of the film. That said, the journey through the multiverse unfortunately struggles to hold all its elements together to make a winning formula. While the film is filled to brim

7 Games That Need A Prequel

Often when a video game is successful and well-received, a sequel or even multiple will be created to further build on the lore and narrative of the original title. However, when developers create a brand-new universe for players to fall in love with, a rich history is usually expanded on and laid out to create a more immersive experience for gamers. Many gaming franchises have created prequels as ways to tell the history of a game series, and flesh out narrative points and moments that are oft

BioShock: All Weapons, Ranked

While Plasmids are of course a central part of the combat in the first BioShock, the game offers up a great variety of weapons for Jack to use when traversing through the depths of Rapture. With seven weapons to find and use throughout the game, BioShock places just as much importance on the guns used as it does the genetically modified elements shooting out of Jack’s hand. While all weapons can be upgraded and enhanced, some deserve more focus and attention than others. After all, managing and

Ranking All The Weapons In BioShock 2

Despite initial reception to the game, BioShock 2 has become a beloved and appreciated title in the gaming community. While many felt it didn’t live up to the success of the original BioShock, something the sequel did manage to improve on was combat gameplay and mechanics. While the game features many of the same Plasmids from the original, BioShock 2 protagonist Subject Delta is given a whole new range of weapons to fight his way through the underwater city of Rapture. While not a damage-focu

Bioshock Infinite: All Weapons, Ranked

BioShock Infinite includes more weapons that any other BioShock game, offering greater opportunity for variety during combat. Throughout the game, different weapons will become available for Booker to use as he journeys through Columbia. Some of these weapons prove useful and effective while others are better used a last resort. Unlike the first two games in the series, Booker is only able to hold two guns at a time rather than having all weapons at his disposal. Therefore, picking the right gu

BioShock Infinite: All Vigors, Ranked

One of the things that set the combat of Bioshock 1 and 2 apart from other shooters was its use of Plasmids. Serums that altered the genetic make-up of the people of Rapture and allowed them the ability to shoot things out of their hands, including but not limited to electricity, fire, and even a swarm of bees. Bioshock Infinite introduces Vigors as the equivalent to this combat feature. And while there may only be a little amount on offer in Infinite, some Vigors are as effective as they are u

Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Review: Struggling to run in the right direction

A film that chooses to play it safe instead of going the extra mile. Sonic is one of the most recognisable gaming characters and franchises of all time. After the surprise success of Sonic the Hedgehog in 2020, the expectation for its sequel rose greatly. Sonic 2 keeps all the positive elements of the first film that people loved, but unfortunately doesn’t do much in the way of building on these elements, simply repeating them. Rather than building up and expanding on these positive elements, t

A return to form for the wrestling franchise that players will dive straight into.

Dying Light 2: Best Parkour Upgrades, Ranked

The first Dying Light game was praised by fans and critics alike for its immersive, fun, and diverse parkour system. One that allowed players to traverse through a post-apocalyptic zombie-infested world better than any previous games of the same genre. While some classic abilities from the first game do feature in the sequel, Dying Light 2: Stay Human expands upon its predecessor’s parkour system to offer even greater parkour abilities to upgrade. These skills there in offering even more versat

Dying Light 2: 10 Best Combat Upgrades, Ranked

The combat system in Dying Light 2 has been given a major overhaul from the original Dying Light.
