Anthem vs Apex Legends

3/19/2019
More
Arguably the two biggest online shooters to release in the first part of 2019, and they both come from the EA stable. Respawn's Apex Legends surprised a lot of people almost coming from nowhere to show off what they could do in the Battle Royale genre, and Bioware's Anthem has been hyped into the stratosphere since it was announced. They might not be targeted at the same audiences, but when they do a similar job it might mean the less informed gamer doesn't know which one to plough their...

Codec Momentum - February 2019

3/12/2019

It's come around quickly this month, but that's February for you folks! In a heartbeat the time seems to have flown by and the chances of getting one of those pile of shame games completed has shrivelled away, but only for some of you it seems. Two thirds of the Codec Moments team might not have been particularly productive, and it might be the lowest number of entries in a good few months, yet there's still a lot to celebrate. On with the show... Listen to this latest update on the 2019...

The Apocalypse and the Acrobat

3/5/2019
More
There's been quite a bit of gaming going on recently in the team, but what should we expect given how many top tier releases there have been over the last month. For this episode of the Codec Moments Podcast, Andy, Matt and Ali get together to talk mainly about two that have impressed them the most in the last month - Metro: Exodus and Trials Rising.

Today marks the general release of DiRT Rally 2.0 - the sequel to the most hardcore rally game we've ever played.

You might regret listening to it though... Listen to this episode of the Codec Moments Podcast to find out: If you want to read our full review of DiRT Rally 2.0 then click this...

Cost of a Coffee - Universal Paperclips

2/22/2019
More
Andy and Stuart discuss their secret love of clicker games and not so secret love of spreadsheets in this week's Cost of a Coffee. Universal Paperclips is the story of a AI designed to manufacture paperclips, above all else. We would describe it in greater detail, but that would just be wasting precious time in which you could be making paperclips... "Release the Hypno Drones."

Cost of a Coffee - Old Man's Journey

2/15/2019
More
This time on Cost of a Coffee, Andy and Stuart giggle because they've consumed too much caffeine and chat about Old Man's Journey. It's a simple puzzle game, which tells an emotional tale through a series of vignettes and divided their opinion over the titular old man. "He's not Santa."

Codec Momentum - January 2019

2/12/2019
More
Unbelievably the first month of 2019 has gone past already. The 31 days whipped by with no thought to our gaming backlogs and only those keeping an eye on the calendar were savvy enough to know what to play and when. Those are the people we're celebrating in this month's Codec Momentum update. Listen to find out:

Cost of a Coffee - Golf Club Wasteland

2/8/2019
More
In this episode of Cost of a Coffee, the Year of Shame buddies Andy and Stuart discuss a mobile golf game that will cost about the same as your morning latte. Golf Club Wasteland, from Demagog Stud!o, is the topic of conversation this week; a golf game with simple mechanics and not so simple level design, set on a post-apocalyptic planet Earth after everyone's popped off to live on Mars. The game uses simple story telling linked to your accomplishments, and excellent sound design, to help...

Aural Delight

2/5/2019

Occasionally we talk about things that aren't games. Not often we know, but it does happen and it's come round again. Matt, Andy and an absent Ali give their views on the headphones they've each received over the last few weeks. Be prepared to get bored senseless on the Bionik Mantis PSVR headphones, the Razer Thresher's for Xbox One, and a set of indeterminate Bluetooth headphones in a woolly hat. Fortunately, to stop you from dozing off the listeners helped out with a couple of...

Cost of a Coffee - Florence

2/1/2019
More
In the first of a new series of Cost of a Coffee, Andy meets with his Year of Shame friend Stuart Neill, to discuss games that cost the same as your cappuccino this morning. Will they prove to be more entertaining and engaging than a cup of joe, or will they leave a more bitter taste in your mouth than a scorched espresso? This week they talk about Florence from Mountains and published by Annapurna Interactive.

January's Gaming Roundup

1/29/2019
More
A whole month has passed already and it feels like we've never left 2018... though that might be because we've had a few AAA titles that decided to avoid the Red Dead Redemption II effect and actually pull in a few sales. But what out of this maelstrom of new and interesting titles have the team been playing? Listen to our gaming roundup to find out. Put your best podcast player to use to hear:

1/5/2019
More
So another year draws to a close and the team reflected on the gaming highlights of the last 12 months. Which titles stood out? How much time did they spend with certain games? What turned out to be the most compelling? How often did they think about breaking their Year of Shame promise because the hype was getting to them? There were lots of games that landed in 2018 that gave us joy and pain, but there’s not enough recording time available to talk about all of them, so we’ve stripped it...

EGX 2018 – Strange Brigade Interview

12/13/2018
More
Even though the game had been out a few weeks and we’d reviewed at launch, we still had a blast playing Strange Brigade at EGX 2018, even if we did get completely outshone by one of the devs playing on our team. At least we got the chance to speak to Josh afterwards about how the game is doing, some of the community feedback, and what Rebellion were planning next.
