‘Battlefield 4’ banned in China

  Not long ago we reported that the People’s Republic of China took issue with the game Battlefield 4, which depicts the Chinese as the bad guys. An editorial in the Chinese military paper Zhongguo Guofangbao claimed that the game was part of an “ongoing cultural war” intended to mislead the impressionable youths around the world, while “discrediting China’s image abroad and distorting the truth.” According to a new report from...

'Angry Birds Go' review -- the birds hit the track

The old saying “You get what you pay for” is usually fairly reliable.

Gran Turismo 6 first week UK sales around five times less than GT5

Gran Turismo 6 is way off the pace of its predecessor, after debuting in the UK with close to five times less sales than Gran Turismo 5. Yes, the presence of two next-gen consoles is no doubt a factor - also GT5 came out on a Wednesday, and GT6 on Friday - but it's still a concerning performance by the PS3 racer, especially considering it had this week to itself, retail-wise. To add insult to injury, it placed eighth in the UK charts this week... [read news]

'Call of Duty: Ghosts' review – a right-wing spectacular?

“Call of Duty: Ghosts," the newest version of the highly popular military first person-shooter series, is out this week -- and arguably has one of the most right-wing premises in video game history. The COD games are the video game equivalents of Michael Bay movies: loud, shouty, full of explosions, ever so slightly ridiculous, and outrageously popular in spite of the critics. “Call of Duty: Ghosts” is very much the same, which is...

Review: 'Forza Motorsport 5' -- the competition eats its dust

The racing game genre is as jam-packed as I-80 in rush hour, making it difficult for games to stand out -- yet “Forza Motorsport 5” still manages to do just that. The Forza series focuses on ultra-realism for hardcore petrolheads. Although often beaten by Gran Turismo games for sales, its latest effort for the Xbox One leaves the competition eating dust in terms of graphical quality. But does the gameplay stack up? “Forza...
