Rayman Legends

Swinging when you’re winning

Out of the five or so new releases that last week gave us, Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze has managed to chart the highest, entering at a respectable #9. Rayman Legends leaps back up from #33 to #10 due to the belated Xbox One and PlayStation 4 conversions, while...

The three Rs – Rayman, Rambo and Rambi

For a second week in a row it’s a busy week for new releases, even if the term ‘new’ is pushing it a bit for two of them. Rayman Legends, for one, isn’t all that fresh. The armless chap makes a belated appearance on both Xbox One and...

Rayman Legends – Review

Back in the days when arcade machines were synonymous with gaming rather than gambling, a simple way for developers to see if they had a hit on their hands was to put it on test in a local arcade. If a player died repeatedly yet still continued to...

Still a saint, not a sinner

No doubt thanks to the current £24.99 price-tag, Deep Silver’s Saints Row IV has managed to hold the top spot in the UK top 40 for a fourth row running. You have to wonder just how many copies are going to be traded in tomorrow. At #2 it’s...

Diablo 3 arrives like a bat out of hell

When the Saints go marching in

It would seem that Deep Silver’s acquisition of Volition is paying off – Saints Row IV has claimed the UK top 40 top spot for a second week running. Last week it was reported that over a million copies have been sold so far, so perhaps it shouldn’t...

Another week of good ‘armless fun

You’d think that after last week’s slew of new big name releases that this week would be looking a little bare. Amazingly for a summer month, that’s not the case. We’ve got not one but two games that are finally with us after facing lengthy delays. Whereas the...

Rayman Legends – demo impressions

A few Wii U games were curiously absent from the European launch. It’s frustrating as the reasons why we can’t have the likes of Scribblenauts Unlimted, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge and Sing Party – despite them being available in America – are pretty trivial. Rayman Legends is...

Haven’t they Dunwall?

From what we can ascertain, the only game arriving at retail this week is Agricultural Simulator 2013 on PC. We’re pretty sure you don’t want to hear 400-odd words about that, so here’s a round-up of what’s available in the world of downloads. The Dishonored: Dunwall City Trials...
