Is Jazzpunk putting the genre of pure comedy on the map in the gaming world? With the growth of gaming as a medium, developers and writers are still grappling with the right way to connect emotionally with their audience. Big budget games continue to look to film for inspiration, sculpting the experience as cinematically as possible. On the indie side, games like the critically acclaimed Gone Home scale back the level of interactivity to tell a m...

 We take a look at achievements in gaming, what they mean, and how they could be improved Way back in 2005, Microsoft coined the idea of achievements and Gamerscore. Every title on the Xbox 360 would have a mandatory minimum of five achievements within the game, which could be unlocked and implemented whichever way the developer would see fit. Unlocking these achievements would reward the player with Gamerscore, a points value which counts for, w...

Does Kung-Fu Factory’s all-female brawler attempt to empower women, or does its cast of fighters reek of dog-eared sexism? With the likes of Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, and the next-gen revitalisation of Killer Instinct, fighting games are as central to the gaming scene as they were 10 or 20 years ago. Such a prolific trend, as with any genre, has inspired a few copycats. Girl Fight is one of them. With a loose backdrop of a story; set in cybe...

Charlie Brooker and Jon Snow’s farcical discussion reflects mainstream media’s puzzlement over the videogame phenomenon The internet has been gently amused by the recent Channel 4 face-off between veteran reporter Jon Snow and cynical satirist Charlie Brooker. In the interview, Brooker, who is an avid gaming fan himself, attempts to demonstrate the capabilities of the newly released Playstation 4 to Snow. The interview could have been a proud mom...

We chat with the manager of a leading eSports team about training routines and the future of eSport. Whether society at large likes it or not, eSports are a fast-growing and increasingly accepted global phenomenon. But many of us trivialise eSports, and don’t really know what they entail other than people spending a lot of time playing a single video game. Do the training schedules match the intensity of pre-fight boxing camps? Are gamers’ wrists...

In today’s divisive economic climate, it’s the perfect time to put your political views to the test. In the real world, the UK – along with much of Europe – is crawling out of a crippling recession. Whether our current government can really take credit for this is questionable, and it’s only in the long run that we’ll be able to judge the effects of their drastic neo-liberal approach to running the country.
