With the Iconic games studio Rare celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, it was a no brainer that Microsoft would look to capitalise on that fact and pluck our nostalgic heart strings!

When Fallout 4 was announced through a teaser trailer that Bethesda threw online, I was wetting myself with excitement! I easily watched the trailer a good 5-6 times. Ok, who am I kidding! I downloaded it and rinsed it over and over! The only thing that could have made the trailer better, was some gameplay!

Well, they have. Really high. Knocked the ball into the stratosphere high.

With Cities Skylines capturing gamers minds in their droves, as thousands build sprawling landscapes, bustling with life, I sit down with Lead Game Designer Karoliina Korppoo to talk about the game and the communities already impressive amount of mods.
Since its launch, Cities Skylines has gone above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to taking the city building crown from EA. Choosing to avoid the many bad decisions that the Sim City reboot chose to wear so proudly, Cities Skylines created a world builder that gamers wanted, no extra frills that nobody asked for, just a really decent city building experience.
