How PlayStation and Xbox have taken different approaches to marketing the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S

I would just like to start this by saying that in no way do I mean to compare PlayStation and Xbox as brands and bring back the console wars of old. I am just observing the differing approaches that they have taken to promoting their next-gen machines. In the run-up to the next generation of consoles and in the months since the release of the rare PS5 and Xbox Series consoles, the media strategies of Sony and Microsoft have been worlds apart. A perfect way to show this polarisation is in an experience that I had a few weeks ago. I was skimming over a sale on the PlayStation Store and spotted Shadow of the Tomb Raider for £12, I […]

Since 1996, Capcom has been creating genre-defining horror games through their Resident Evil (Biohazard in Japan) franchise.

Remnant: From The Ashes Review

Some may describe Remnant: From the Ashes as a souls-like with guns, but I would completely disagree with that statement. It has a different style of gameplay and a level of customization that is totally unique, trading sword, shield and bow for pistol, shotgun, and modifications that give you special powers. Remnants parts add up to a challenging but fun […]
