    Football Manager Classic 2014 PS Vita review – on-the-go obsession let down by its pressing game

    As a recovering FM addict (I’ve banned myself from playing the PC version since 2012), playing Football Manager 2014 Classic could have been a disaster. Sure, this handheld version is meant to be less life-sapping and somewhat shallower, but you don’t go around offering weak lager to alcoholics, do you? The series’ PS Vita debut is a solid supplement to that which you spend your nights playing while hoping the wife doesn’t catch you, but there are enough flaws in its implementation to ensure that I came through the experience with only a mild twitch in one eyelid.

    The concept of ‘so bad it’s funny’ is far from new. It can be applied to most of Creed’s music catalogue, Keanu Reeves’ flick The Lake House, and even cult ‘classic’ Ride To Hell: Retribution, which received the hallowed 1/10 in OPM #87. It was with such a hope in mind that I set about reviewing this licensed, brainless blast-’em-up.Having emerged at the end of the ordeal angry, scarred, and more than a little nauseous, I can’t even award it that questionable accolade.

    There’s a moment in David Fincher’s Fight Club when Ed Norton’s character Jack takes on handsome, soft-faced Jared Leto in a no-rules basement scuffle – and smashes Leto’s angular cheekbones into paste. Jack’s justification, delivered while his opponent’s twitching on the floor? “I felt like destroying something beautiful.”

    Call of duty ghosts PS4 review

    Call of Duty might still be one of the biggest games in all existence but there’s a cloud looming. Sales maintain their stratospheric numbers but have failed to reach peaks set by previous games, Black Ops in particular. Worse still there seems to be a growing resentment from gamers rebelling against it’s mainstream domination. So what can Activision do? Ride it out or reinvent its shooty cash cow. Here’s Team OPM to debate the options they think will work best for COD’s future.

    You should always look for the bear necessities, those simple bear necessities…especially when Yogi’s second cousin is about to tear out your windpipe. Yup, Monolith sure knows how to conjure a grizzly that’s more man-eating than your average picnic basket-scoffer. If there’s a prize for the most memorable animal attack on PS3, Condemned 2′s encounter would surely clean up.

    Wolfenstein the new order ps4 screens

    Bearing the name of a franchise that started life over 20 years ago doesn’t immediately instil confidence that Wolfenstein: The New Order is going to provide something genuinely new in what is an already over-populated first-person shooter genre.
