This week celebrates 20 years since the launch of the original PlayStation game console, and Chella’s put together a list of her most played PSOne games. Is yours on there?
Last week was all about Monument Valley, for me. I first found it on a fellow gamer’s Pinterest board and promptly added it to my ‘must play’ list. Then it was nominated in the Time best looking games of the year list and I thought ‘there’s that game again’. But before I could buy it, Monument Valley hit the headlines again, because it was bombarded with one-star reviews from gamers who took exception to paying for the expansion.

With the holiday season approaching, game companies are putting out some pretty cool products that fall into the wacky yet cool category. In fact, taken as a whole, the past couple weeks have been filled with good gaming news. So grab a mug of hot chocolate and curl up with some fine headlines rounded up for your pleasure by Chella.
The month of Halloween always brings a slew of horror game releases with it and 2014 is no different. But Chella has picked her most terrifying game characters ever. Did your favorite fright make the list of scariest video game characters?

Chella reports on all things Gamescom this week. Watching both major conferences, it looked like Microsoft would finally put one in the win column, until Sony came out and blew them away once again.
It’s been a long, slow summer, with games releases very thin on the ground. All is not lost, dear play chums. Gamescom, Europe’s biggest industry show and one of the highlights of the gaming calendar, is just two weeks away.

BioWare’s new IP What we know: The Mass Effect developer has confirmed that a new IP will be revealed at Gamescom 2014. We’ve been treated to a […]
Chella deconstructs Valiant Hearts: The Great War in terms of artistic merit, gameplay and storytelling style. And she’s mighty glad that the industry, and Ubisoft specifically, is willing to take chances like this beyond the normal run and gun bullet storm gameplay we normally get.
