"Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III has all the ingredients of a good game and a good Warhammer, but the truth is that it confuses me. If sometimes I find myself loving the game and am grateful for having another good RTS, on the other hand there are decisions that baffle me. It could be a great game but, as it is now and at full price, it is difficult to recommend if you are not a fan. The future is in the hands of Relic, which has good foundations to support, improve and expand this game, which could be excellent, but is only average."
Life Is Strange is one of my all time favorite games, so I let out a squeal of delight when i saw the news from developer DONTNOD that they are working on a sequel. Life Is Strange was originally released in 2015 and won the BAFTA Games Award for Best Story. The game's plot focuses on Max Caulfield, a photography student who discovers that she has the ability to rewind time at any moment, leading her to try to stop an impending disaster. However, the main draw of the story was the relationships between the characters and how your decisions affected the world around you across differing time periods. I for one cannot wait to see what the sequel will bring us!

He won a BAFTA for his work on the game.
British comic 2000 AD gave us many great characters, such as the almost perfectly badass Judge Dredd. Another is Rogue Trooper, the renegade Genetic Infantryman (GI) who appeared in his own BAFTA-nominated videogame in 2006.
Which of these need their own remaster?
Happily, that that game is getting a remaster, entitled Rogue Trooper Redux. It’s set to bring a classic game all up to date, and if you missed the original, developers Rebellion have released a video that’ll catch you up on the backstory.

Scanner Sombre is a "cave exploration experience". You’ll use a laser scanner called a to navigate a network of underground caves, in pitch darkness, as you try to find your way back to the surface. Your LIDAR will spray thousands of neon light points all around, helping you get your bearings, but "not all is as it seems, and you might not be alone", say Introversion. Spooky.
