Minecraft PS3 edition

Why do you need a Minecraft tips guide? Because freedom is crippling. There are so many possibilities that your first instinct is to either start skipping about exploring the horizon or to stand frozen in indecision, unsure whether to plough straight into that 1:1 scale model of the Enterprise you had planned or go on a pig-slaying crusade.

From things like the stern face of challenges like Dark Souls 2 or cros-gen stuff like Watch Dogs, right through to platform favourites like Metal Gear Solid and Final Fantasy up there.

If there’s one thing you can be sure of at this time of year it’s that people will probably drink a little bit more. I’m not saying it’s a good thing but there’s no escaping that for most, Christmas cheer usually comes with a mixer. With that in mind we look back at some videogame booze – from those partial to a drop, through to famous pubs. Merry Christmas.

PS4 console & menu

I was struck while moving house recently by the discovery of a PS2 memory card. I thought of the contents – a PES 5 master league, a Resi 4 save, a near-full collection of Burnout 3 cars. A series of lives, interrupted. I hadn’t said goodbye to any of this stuff – it was just left, in progress, in a box on a shelf.

Gran Turismo 6 PS3

It might not be the jewel in the series’ crown, but Gran Turismo 6 remains a veritable Mecca for serious racers on PS3. ‘Hang on though OPM, what’s all this about microtransactions?’ You ask us, glowering. ‘And the cars handle all funny now, it’s almost like… it’s like I have to concentrate.’ Yep, the economy’s changed drastically since GT5, the handling model even more so. But with our pearls of motoring wisdom you’ll be back to steamrolling everyone and taking a morning swim in your enormous vault full of credits before you know it. I’m legally obliged by the game journalist’s guild to say something like ‘start your engines’ at this point.

deus ex

Here we go, then. The games writers’ game. The mythical masterwork that anyone old enough to remember when trenchcoats and shades were a legitimate style choice just can’t let go.

We’re already deep into smoking jacket, brandy-sipping, beard-caressing territory here, but just go with it and we promise we won’t start quoting Nietzsche.
