"Keen Software House must be rolling in the dough right now. One of the greatest games that’s never been formally advertised with a marketing budget and a team of poorly paid shills shoving trailers down your throat and pre-order DLC bonuses up every other forum post and social aggregator, has officially hit the milestone mark of selling one-million copies."

In Crimes & Punishments, become Sherlock Holmes and use your impressive talents as a detective to solve six thrilling and varied cases: murders, missing persons, spectacular thefts and numerous investigations that sometimes lead you into the realms of the fantastic.

Choose the leads you wish to pursue, interrogate your suspects and, from your deductions, name the g...

Darren from The Gamers Lounge writes "Although Monolith's adventure into Mordor was well received amongst most critics for it's impressive gameplay, the lack of a deep storyline left me struggling to make it through the game. Is it fair to give a game high review ratings simply based on gameplay, or have gamers' standards lowered enough so that a story no longer matters?"

While freemium games are nothing new, Moshling Rescue! doesn’t add much to the match three style genre and goes a bit overboard in promoting micro-transactions. As much as it stinks losing a level, it further rubs salt into the wound by trying to sell me something that could have prevented it.

"Shadow of Mordor is a challenging game and you won’t last very long by mashing the attack button over and over again. Expect to die or flee often as the Uruks are a tough bunch and you will often find yourself outnumbered by a great deal. The Uruk Captains also add another layer of challenge with each of them having their own mix of strengths and weaknesses."

Ever the one for hints, Ed Boon co-creator of the Mortal Kombat games recently sent out another tweet that could possibly be hinting at the next fighter to join MKX’s roster.

Denis Murphy writes- I've always had a thing for adventure games. Even during my adolescent years of being a gamer, I'd have settled for a good adventure title over something that offered big guns being shot by a woman with very large breasts any day. The first adventure game that really blew me away was Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars. Boasting great voice acting, characters, music, puzzles and an epic storyline, it had it all.

At EGX Dom was able to get his hands on Dead Island 2 from Deep Silver. Is the next addition to the zombie survival series worth picking up? Or is there a lot of zombies yearning for more?

"It is great to know that Activision actually approached the Japanese studio on making this action packed title. Another interesting tidbit for fans of the developer, Kurooka states Korra will have a difficulty level that “suits their expectations” and the final boss fight will have “PlatinumGames written all over it.”"

"Yesterday VRFocus reported on a new virtual reality (VR) shopping experience named Open.TV. The concept is simple enough in that consumers are given detailed pictures and videos of a product before deciding whether or not to buy something. Promised integration with the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD) suggests that the idea could be one of the first signs of true VR making an impact in the retail space. According to UK department store group House of Fraser, this could just be the start."

"Earlier in 2014 indie developer The Virtual Dutch Men released the world’s first one to one virtual reality (VR) roller coaster in Helix – The Next Level. The experience stands out from other VR roller coasters by perfectly replicating the Helix ride located at the Liseberg theme park in Gothenburg, Sweden. Today the developer has released a new update for the experience, which adds no functionality."

"A slew of new horror experiences have come to the Oculus VR Share Beta in its most recent update. Some are short experiences while others are full videogames. The Apparition Within The Rift from indie developer Rogue Agents Studios sits in between as an environmental demo for the upcoming full experience. The demo is compatible with the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD) and is compatible now."

"Certain aspects of the story will upset you, tug at your heart strings and motivate you with some adrenaline pumping goodness all within the span of a few clicks. I would go so far as to say that the level of interactions between the characters as well as the overall scope of the story are some of the best that I have played since the Mass Effect trilogy. I do not believe I have been this invested in a story and the characters in quite some time which is certainly quite the feat as I am a hug..."

Deathtrap isn't suppose to release until early next year but you can get early access to the game on October 22nd through Steam.

Slightly Mad Studios and Bandai Namco Games America Inc. have announced today that Project CARS won't be making its November release date and instead will now be releasing on March 17, 2015 for the Playstation 4, Xbox One and the PC.

With the title being moved away from the competitive holiday scene that is usually dominated by household titles, it allows the team from Slightly Mad Studios some more time to extend and polish the game and accomplish the next-gen racing experience that has b...

Jermain of RGN writes: "Poland developer Destructive Creations released their reveal trailer for Hatred, an upcoming shooter that is being labeled as “controversial” by many.

Denis Murphy writes- The idea of play has always stayed with me, and I imagine with you also. It's because we're gamers, as I don't think gamers ever truly leave behind the concept of play. Back in the day, outside my house was a huge green hill. We called it “the hill”, naturally. During summer and before our estate hired a tractor to come and cut it, the grass grew incredibly high on that hill. Even if I stood next to it, it would almost be up to my shoulders at its maximum height. When we ...

"I’m referring to the PlayStation 4 versions since the Xbox One doesn’t have the ability (Yet) to take screenshots. Also seeing as there is a high chance that each AAA PS4 exclusives will be including it, I didn’t bother listing Bloodborne and The Order: 1886."

The debate about if games should qualify as art has raged on for a good while and is likely to continue for some time. Recently I've been giving the question some thought and because GameGrep is kind enough to afford me a platform on which to do so, I've decided to share my musings with all of you.

In my personal opinion the whole debate about whether or not games should qualify as art is a big bunch of malarky. Because to ask that question implies A. That every book ever written, movie ev...

GG3 puts the recent announcement of PC game "Hatred" under the microscope and discusses the dangers of its opportunism that clings on mass shootings and supposedly fighting for some connected ideology.

Stardock is hard at work with Galactic Civilizations these days, with the beta actively under way there's a huge push to observe player trends, bugs, ai issues and general behavior of the core build.

Beta 2 is upon us and we were able to talk with Paul Boyer the Lead Developer with Stardock for the project and give some insight into a milestone of Beta 2, the ne...

Denis Murphy writes- I remember it like it was yesterday. Along with my brothers I went to the cinema on the opening day of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, on the cold evening of December 19th 2001 in Dublin. I never read the books before seeing the film, but during the opening scenes I fell in love with the world of Middle-Earth.

A very reputable source has just revealed some new information about the most anticipated game for the next gen consoles. The Division will have an open world survival platform similar to DayZ. In PVP modes players will be able to engage other players and team up or eliminate each other to confiscate gears needed to survive. There will also be social zones that will allow players to trade items.

"Sucker Punch Productions’ inFamous: Second Son was the first current-gen title to introduce the popular feature earlier this year, The Last of Us: Remastered and Driveclub (All PS4 exclusives) followed suit."
