Some say Greg isn’t one person but a group of many people posting under the pseudonym “Greg”. No one knows for sure but either way, as long as he continues to fight the good fight of reviewing games, then we will always consider him a hero.

The Banner Saga 3 review

The Banner Saga trilogy has introduced us to a Disney meets Don Bluth 2D world, steeped in European-esque medieval fantasy with tactically deep and satisfying combat. But, like all things, it must come to an end. This world where the sun has died and the Varl and Human races’ have suffered and fought to try to overcome the apocalypse, delivers it’s denouement here in The Banner Sage 3, and indeed ...

20XX review

One of the most frustrating elements of the Mega Man games is the frequent dying; losing all your lives and being forced to start again. But this difficulty and limitation of lives is a big part of the classic experience, taking it beyond just a necessity of design from the 8bit and 16bit era of games and turning it into a part of Mega Man’s identity as a series. Modern interpretations of this sys...

Jurassic World Evolution review

Jurassic World Evolution is a park building management sim that allows you to recreate Jurassic Park, dealing with the dangers, costs and other challenges involved in building and maintaining a zoo attraction with highly dangerous and intractable dinosaurs.

Prey: Mooncrash review

Prey: Mooncrash is a very clever and highly enjoyable melding of first-person shooting and exploration with Rogue-like death and replay. It manages to create an entirely fresh experience in the Prey universe. Moreover, it’s fantastically compelling. You are tasked with entering a simulation and reliving the desperate escape of five individuals that are trapped on the lunar base with Typhon enemies...

Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn review

The original Shaq Fu received mostly positive reviews at launch, but as time passed it gained the notoriety of being terrible, one of the worst games ever made in fact. Certainly, a sequel or reimagining didn’t seem likely, but after a successful Indiegogo campaign here we have Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn, and what a pleasant surprise it is. Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn ditches the original Mortal Kombat...

Nioh 2 revealed

Nioh 2 got a quick reveal teaser in the Sony E3 2018 press conference. A really quick teaser. I’m sure it’ll pop up online shortly, but as of yet nothing, and my bed beckons. I’m sure we’ll have an update in the near future, but until then the take away is simply that Nioh is getting a sequel, yay!

Control revealed

A third-person action game with physics manipulation, possibly also some time manipulation, was shown off at the E3 2018 Sony press conference. A new title called Control from Remedy. It looks a bit Quantum Break to us, which makes sense with Remedy. You can check out the reveal trailer below:

Sony have delivered on the gameplay footage we’ve all been waiting for, footage for Kojima Production’s Death Stranding. It looks gorgeous, eerie and confusing, precisely what we expected.
