Specifically, with the relatively slow progress being in VR tech since the reveal of the very first Oculus Rift prototype. "I'm often kind of grumpy around the office because I really haven't been satisfied with the pace of progress that we've been making," John Carmack said in a video acceptance speech. "When I'm in VR I see the magic there, but my brain is always throwing up these giant 'to do' Post-It Notes on top of everything, reminding me of all the work that's yet to be done."

And with the new Razer Viper Ultimate the renown hardware maker is staking a claim for the creation of the world's most advanced lightweight wireless device.

Which will be another game changer thanks to the Pandemonium buff that will define Diablo III's Season 19. Where speed and damage buffs are applied during Kill Streaks with things like "Exploding Chickens" and "Frost Nova blasts" triggering every 15 Kills - going all the way up to 1,000. Also, Season 19 also introduces new Set Items - one for the Crusader and one for the Monk.

When the trailer for the live action Sonic the Hedgehog movie debuted earlier in the year we wrote, "weird would be one word to describe it, though a string of words like 'what in the hell is this' feels more apt". Based on the "realistic" look of Sonic who had weird eyes and what looked like human teeth. The backlash was so big that the studio pulled the movie to completely re-do and re-design Sonic's look.

Announced at BlizzCon alongside a stunning cinematic trailer, Diablo IV was also playable at the show. With Blizzard on hand to talk about all aspects of the game with confidence and a willing ear to listen to feedback - it was an opportunity we couldn't pass up. So much so we ended up playing the demo several times.

And being Mario Kart-like isn't a bad thing, nor is being built by ex Mario Kart developers. And in the new trailer showcasing the game's Switch and PC release, it's easy to see a massive resemblance, but it's the flying on the back of your witch friend that really stands out here.

Okay, so both Aladdin and The Lion King - in 1990s platfomer, err, form - are stone cold classics. Wonderful animation that leveraged some of the best of Disney. Memorable characters and great music, with solid gameplay. So, with that you'd think this would be a no brainier for fans.

A new entry, even a remaster, in the Super Monkey Ball series from SEGA is definite cause for excitement. Except that Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz HD isn't quite the monkeys trapped in balls experience we were after. In that when it came to choosing which game to bring back, like that old knight in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, the developers chose... poorly.

With its announcement trailer going live ahead of X019 later this week. Which is the big Xbox event happening in London where we'll no doubt get a slew of Xbox One (and maybe some Scarlett) game newsiness this weekend. The Falconeer from Wired Productions and Tomas Sala, is an Xbox One game described as an arcade aerial combat RPG. With falcons.

Which is a shame because we absolutely adored Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, with our review calling it one of the best RPGs in years. So then, why low sales compared to the original? Well Game Director Josh Sawyer broke it down as part of a Tumblr Ask Me Anything.

Of course there's no single peripheral out there that can take a rather average player into the realm of esports competitive superstar, but they can still give you an edge in your everyday gaming. Case in point the low 1mm actuation point of the Razer Huntsman Tournament Edition. Which had Nathan Lawrence go all Zen and unlearn and re-learn the learnings and ways of the FPS.

With the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Year 4 wrapping up with its final season and the introduction of two new Operators. Kali and Wamai, an Attacker and Defender, from India and Kenya respectively. Kali comes equipped with a bolt-action sniper rifle - the CSRX 300 - that can penetrate and blow holes in breakable walls. As well as an entire team if you can line up the shot just right.

It's no secret that Rare and Microsoft attempted to release a HD remake of the classic N64 first-person shooter GoldenEye 007 for the Xbox 360, but couldn't quite sort out the licensing. In its place we got a pretty impressive Perfect Dark HD remake, and now thanks to some leaked gameplay we've got a good look at what looks to be the finished thing.

Another surprise packet that found its way into our inbox, Superliminal from Indie studio, Pillow Castle Games (great name, by the way), takes the first-person puzzle genre(?) by the balls, and then both shrinks and expands those balls, depending on your perspective.
