    The marketing term is “Trans media franchise”.  It means a project that appeals to consumers over a variety of mediums like movies, toys, video games and books.  Star Wars is the granddaddy of them all, quickly turning from an underdog film into a runaway toy line with novels, comic books, made for TV specials and...

    The sun beat down on a premature summer’s afternoon last Friday as I avoided the suspect yet intimidating life-size figures of some of Tekken’s most notable representatives. These iconic characters (fixed in battle pose) were guarding the entrance to a lavish gaming lounge in Namco Bandai’s head offices in London – a lounge bordered by...

    Fighting monsters isn’t quite as scary when you know that you’re supposed to win.   This is the case with the zombies in many video games; no matter how great the odds were against Chris, Jill and the rest of the gang in Resident Evil, the Player knew that the humans would eventually escape the tide...

    “Revengenace” isn’t a word, but that didn’t stop Konami from using it as a subtitle for the latest installment in the Metal Gear franchise.  Having been a long-time fan of the series, I had still lost track of the increasingly incomprehensible story.  I was vaguely aware that somewhere along the line, Raiden, the prettyboy who...

    I’d be the quickest person to argue that amongst the over-saturated mess that is the contemporary First-Person Shooter genre, the Ghost Recon franchise hasn’t been one that’s appeared brightly on many people’s games radars. Previous entries seem to flock by without any major buzz; glaringly unambitious and worryingly generic in their execution. They tend to...

    When Fallout 3 arrived, many of Bethesda’s fans called it “Oblivion with guns”. Even though one was set in a fantasy world while the other was post-apocalyptic, the two games ran on the same engine, had similar mechanics and each let players craft a custom character to explore a vast free-roam world. With Bethesda’s latest...

    The Hitman series has always had a special place in my heart. Right from the days of Hitman: Codename 47 back in 2000, I have been hooked on the series’ open-ended and improvisational approach to, well, murdering people.
