Xbox One Smart Chargers recalled

A recall notice has been issued with regards to rechargeable batteries from Energizer, the product known as Energizer® XBOX ONE 2X Smart Chargers have been deemed as unsafe due to an overheating issue. This is pretty scary, all you have to do is search for battery explosion on youtube to see the damage that can be caused, can you imagine of that happened in your hand? I had some things explode in ...

Utter Carnage as Butcher is set for Xbox One

Butcher is a fast paced 2D action shooter developed by Transhuman Design. Butcher is clearly a nod to past cult classics, you play a cyborg with one mission and one mission alone, to eradicate humanity. The 8-bit approach is already a winner but the trailer sets it off with that B-Movie gorefest voice over. Butcher isn’t available just yet but is set to land somewhere in Q2 of 2017   BU...

Table Top Racing World Tour review

The idea of tiny cars racing around a real world environment isn’t a new one. Micro Machines was probably one of the first way back in 1991.  Table Top Racing World Tour puts us right back into the action with an added sense of nostalgia, after all, it doesn’t seem that long ago since I was racing toy cars around the ketchup at the dinner table. Table Top Racing World Tour has been aro...

Vertical Drop Heroes HD review

It’s been a long time since I sat in front of a PC, loaded up a web browser and played a Flash game. Things have moved on a lot since those days and unfortunately some of these gems aren’t getting the traffic they used to. Vertical Drop Heroes HD, however, has ascended from Flash game to console game, and is impressively the brain child of just one man. Like most games of this type, re...

Sega adds new Green Hill Zone to Sonic Mania

Picture the scene, a young fresh faced Rob Mafia sat on the Sega bus at Walesby International Scout Camp in 1993. Upstairs on the bus were rows of Sega Megadrives all with Sonic the Hedgehog 2 loaded and ready to play. This was the birth of a LAN party. Sonic the Hedgehog has been part of every gamers history, so I was excited to hear that Sonic Mania is in the pipeline and will be coming to Xbox ...

Riptide GP: Renegade review

High powered water sports aren’t the most covered topic when it comes to the gaming market. That being said though when the subject is addressed, it is done extremely well. I give you Riptide GP: Renegade. Vector Unit (which is an awesome name by itself) have polished up what was in my opinion already a success. Back in January 2015 our very own Phil Kowalski reviewed Riptide GP2 and gave it...

Furi review

I’m all for independant games, the idea of a small company working hard and achieving success is a fantasy most indie devs dream of, and most of the time I’m rooting for them. Can this be said for The Game Bakers, the developers of Furi? Not this time, sorry. The aim of Furi is pretty simple, hack, slash, dodge and shoot your way past 9 bosses. Each boss offers a varied set of challeng...
