When I was young, I was a massive fan of monsters, dinosaurs, and other cool-looking spiky creatures; basically, anything that looked tough and cool. Though my enthusiasm for wicked dragons and weird creatures has waned a bit over the years, I felt a resurgence of childhood glee when I discovered the premise of Monster Hunter Stories. Your personalised character is a fledgling Rider, hailing from a small village where monsters aren’t hunted but instead befriended, trained and used to defend in combat. It’s a significant departure from other Monster Hunter titles, although you’ll recognis...

Today marks a decade of saving the universe with the best companions, as the original Mass Effect released on this day in 2007! Originally published as an Xbox 360 exclusive, Mass Effect saw players embark on the first step of an epic trilogy, with the promise of choices and decisions carrying throughout and haunting Commander Shepard and their crew. It also introduced a revolutionary conversation system where instead of static sequences, dialogue between characters played out as full cutscenes, with a wheel of possible options that didn't break action. The amount of RPGs that have carried this system forward are quite numerous! Have you played Mass Effect? If so, Ashley or Kaiden?

15 years ago today, we were introduced to the return of Samus Aran in Metroid Prime! The first Metroid title since 1994's Super Metroid brought Samus and Metroid style gameplay into 3D for the first time, creating something unlike anything at the time. Part of what made it special was developer Retro Studio's commitment to creating a really specific atmosphere in the game. From the level design, to the information you're constantly scanning, and even the soundtrack, everything creates a mood that's just utterly perfect for Metroid. Not to mention the game worked, and still works, amazingly well. Have you played Metroid Prime?

Total War Saga: THRONES OF BRITANNIA [COB]

After a few years of dabbling in fantasy, Total War is going back to historical battles, with a twist! Total War Saga: Thrones of Brittania sees players battling over Britannia in 878 AD, post the Viking Invasion. You may also be wondering what a Total War Saga is? According to The Creative Assembly, it'll have the same gameplay depth as a regular game in the series, with the difference being it'll be set in a concentrated moment in history. If you ever played the Fall of the Samurai spin-off from Total War: Shogun 2, you're on the right track. Total War Saga: Thrones of Brittania is set for release in 2018.

As part of Rare's incredibly successful period on the Nintendo 64, Diddy Kong Racing proved a fantastic compliment to Mario Kart 64; partly thanks to its Adventure Mode, giving the kart racing genre an expansive single player mode! Diddy Kong Racing also saw the debut of two future Rare platformer heroes: Banjo the Bear, who'd star in his own game the following year; and Conker the Squirrel, who needed a Bad Fur Day before people would remember him. Have you played Diddy Kong Racing?

TEKKEN 7 - Noctis Lucis Caelum Reveal Trailer | PS4, XB1, PC

Not content with letting Ed Boon & WB Games own the title of "most left-field guest character in a fighting game", Bandai Namco today announced that Final Fantasy XV protagonist and noted fishing enthusiast Noctis Lucis Caelum will be the second DLC character hitting Tekken 7, and releasing in 2018. Noctis will be coming with a stage based on FFXV's Hammerhead. The news also comes as Namco today confirmed that the first DLC character, SNK's Geese Howard, is near completion, and several major improvements are coming to the game (namely, reduced input lag and rematching in online player matches). We're hoping that Noctis comes with a Cup Noodle helmet accessory that can be used with every c...

Originally revealed as an open world stealth game set in the Crusades, it was later revealed that it was a front for the real story: a battle against the all-powerful Templars in the near future! While the first game remains the most divisive in the series, it would go on to spawn one of the most popular franchises in current gaming. Later entries would see players skulk their way through Renaissance Italy, Victorian England and most recently, Ancient Egypt. We even got a movie starring Michael Fassbender! The series is also attributed to laying the foundations of Ubisoft'...
