Control is the new game from Remedy, the studio behind Quantum Break and Alan Wake, and it's shaping up to be just as twisted and unsettling as those earlier games.

Battlefield 5 might be the the umpteenth game in the long-running series, but that doesn't mean it doesn't shake things up. Based on this gameplay and having played it, we reckon some changes, big and small, means BF5 multiplayer feels different from the other Battlefield games.
We love our classic Bioware role-playing games, but when it was announced that Bioware's new game Anthem was to be an online shared world action RPG, we were worried.

Here are six things that made us stop worrying quite so hard about Anthem.

When you play the latest game in a popular series, it's hard to imagine previous instalments were ever less than this immersive, technically impressive, and beautiful to look at. Unless it's Duke Nukem Forever.

Consider these long-running and much-loved series that we can't believe made it past their shaky first starts.

The most effective scares happen when you're least expecting them. This gives non-horror games an advantage at scaring the bejesus out of us, because we were having a nice relaxed time doing assassinations, not expecting sudden terror.
