Hard Brexit Software: Article 50-Inspired Video Game Coming Soon

If you’ve ever wanted an insight into what life under Brexit might be like (because the British government aren’t doing it any time soon), you’re in luck, you absolute weirdo. PanicBarn are ready to import that good to us (though thankfully without a higher post-Brexit tax tag) with their brand new title, Not Tonight. Not Tonight will allow Brexiteers and Remoaners alike to experienced an imagined post-Brexit landscape, in which the political measure has forced the UK into a dystopia.

GAME REVIEW: ‘Animal Rivals’ – Grade-A Monkey Crap

“In life, one must choose between boredom and suffering.” said Madame de Stael. Madame de Stael is dead. She couldn’t have possibly known that you could choose both, but in her defence, the option hadn’t truly presented itself until Animal Rivals came out for Switch, which deftly combines the two feelings to an utter master stroke.

‘Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’ Gets New ‘Zombies’ Trailer

The agonisingly popular Call of Duty series is set to have its new instalment, Black Ops 4, released on the 12th of October of this year. That isn’t the story, however, as we’ve known that for months; what is now clearer to us is the details and aesthetic of the Zombies mode, which received a brand new story trailer entitled “Chaos” today. The trailer detailed a scenario entitled “Voyage of Despair” which depicts an undead outbreak happening on a military ship during the turn of the last century. Where in the world this happens is ambiguous, especially as it happens on an...
