Final Fantasy 10/10-2 HD and Final Fantasy 12 The Zodiac Age fall to £28 on Switch
1 hour, 17 minutes ago

It wasn't much of a surprise that we were less than enthusiastic to pay £45 for the Final Fantasy 10/10-2 HD Remaster and Final Fantasy 12 The Zodiac Age on Switch when they launched for that price back in April. Now, however, both RPGs have dropped to a much more palatable £28.I've only really seen them for about a pound or so lower at any other time, so you're getting one of the best prices for both games so far. Having them on a portable console like the Switch also means you can steadily chip away at these multi-hour beasts on trips or your commute.I'll always have a soft spot for Final Fantasy 10, while 10-2 is well worth a play for the battle system alone. Final Fantasy 12, meanwhile, has always been a bit of a strange one. It's much-loved by some and derided by others in equal measure. I found I enjoyed it a lot more when revisiting it for the first time in years for this remaster.Read more

Borderlands 3 review - bigger, better and even more polarising than ever before
1 hour, 41 minutes ago

Borderlands 3 and I don't seem particularly compatible; not on paper, anyway. We don't have a whole lot in common. The eleventy gazillion gun options in its predecessor? That overwhelmed me more than it intrigued. The in-your-face hyper-meta edgelord humour? Nah, I'm good, ta. I'd ventured to Pandora before, but they were little more than fleeting visits, really. Though a fervent FPS fan, Pandora's beige world of anarchy and excess just didn't click for me. So, as I stepped back into Pandora for Borderlands 3 I was open-minded if a tad hesitant. It's always daunting, stepping into a well-heeled universe, especially one this loved. Would I understand the plot? Will there be too many in-jokes? It turns out my fears were unfounded, and it's to Gearbox's credit that while I'm waiting for the novelty of this sequel's balls-to-the-wall mayhem to wear off, it still hasn't.Read more

FIFA 20 review - fun football foiled by a stubborn refusal to read the room
4 hours, 11 minutes ago

I find myself quite cross with FIFA 20. This is a game with meaningful, welcome changes on the pitch. This is a fun football video game made by developers who clearly love football and are well aware of community feedback. But FIFA 20 is also a video game made by a publisher that's seemingly incapable of changing some of the problematic stuff that comes with each and every FIFA game - at a time when the conversation has most certainly changed.Let's start with the good news. Pace is back. FIFA 19 had an annoying issue where decidedly average defenders would catch up with fast players. Even Chris Smalling could do it. No more. In FIFA 20, fast players really do feel fast. This is very much a good thing, in my book. So much of modern football is about pace and running in behind the defence, and so it is in FIFA 20. I find myself looking for that winger run pretty much every time I work the ball in midfield and, if I can get it to my winger, attacking the box. There's a real sense of immediacy to FIFA 20's gameplay, a staccato rhythm to play that rewards quickness of thought. Pass, pass, pass around the corner then bang! The likes of Mohamed Salah and Kylian Mbappe are devastating in FIFA 20 - as they are in real life.Speaking of bursts of pace, the new strafe dribbling, dubbed "crab walking" by the FIFA community, returns after a hiatus brought on by its overpowered star turn in FIFA 17. This powerful technique feels particularly useful in the context of FIFA 20 downplaying skill moves (the El Tornado cross auto-goal is a thing of the past). The idea here is to lure the defender in with crab walking then beat them with speed or a skill move. It's fun, satisfying and perhaps ever so slightly too effective. But what's certain is it beats normal left stick dribbling.Read more
