Review: Infinity Runner

Wales Interactive’s Infinity Runner joins the small collective of videogames that offer support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD) long before a consumer version of the device is available. Jumping on the VR bandwagon so early is most certainly a double-edged sword: developers…

In 1979 audiences were terrified by a man in a latex suit. That man was Bolaji Badejo and that suit was the now-unmistakable Xenomorph, a grotesque, deadly creature that went on to become the star of 1979’s Alien. It’s now 2014 and, just like rubber sharks, Badejo…
