Not A Hero: Super Snazzy Edition review

In the year 2048 the world is on the brink of total alien destruction. In trying to stop this, BunnyLord, a giant purple bunny, travels back in time with the intention of stopping it by running for Mayor. Weird I know, but instead of speeches and debates BunnyLord has decided to take his approach slightly differently by ridding the entire city of crime in the only way he knows, violently. Not A He...

Fallout 4: Far Harbor review

Teeming with new monsters, quests, NPCs and loot, with an offering of 15 hours or more of adventuring, Far Harbor is indeed the expansion Fallout 4 fans have been waiting for. Better yet it’s also fantastic. With a radio signal informing you of a new case at Valentine’s Detective Agency, you’re soon heading to the North West coast to jump on a boat and journey to a mysterious island drenched in an...

LucidSound LS30 review

Gamers have a huge choice of headsets to choose from these days, whether it’s Astro, Turtle Beach, Plantronics or more there is something to suit everybody. It’s not just about gaming these days though, we want to be able to move from consoles to devices and back again with the minimal of fuss. But have you ever tried wearing a traditional headset on tube in London? Sound quality is pa...

Olli Olli 2 XL Edition

If you had a chance to read my Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 review, then you would already understand how much I enjoy skating games. A genre which isn’t as popular as it once was, and one which doesn’t really represent like it used to in the games industry. Skating games have gone through many phases over the years, from arcadey titles such as the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skat...

Coffin Dodgers review

Sometimes, there are some titles that I can’t really wait to get my teeth into. Then there are some that make me yearn for the cold embrace of death, or at least the opportunity to take my teeth out and soak them afterwards. When Milky Tea and Wales Interactive revealed Coffin Dodgers, I was mildly optimistic for a decent effort at replacing the Mario Kart shaped hole in my Saturday evening drunk ...

DOOM review

Please be good, please be good, please be good…. Oh my god I want this to be so good. I’m excited, palms are a bit sweaty, head dizzy with anticipation. DOOM is finally here and it’s like Christmas for me, no wait…. Double Christmas. It’s fair to say I am really amped for DOOM. It’s such an iconic, legendary series An icon. However, it’s also important to ...

Battleborn review

Part MOBA, part FPS, Part RPG; Battleborn certainly throws a lot of mechanics into its frantic action, drenched in humour and cartoon style. It’s a mixture that doesn’t quite come together in the end but the striking aesthetic and those few moments of solid cohesion are thoroughly impressive enough to make up for the shortcomings. If you’re at all familiar with the Borderlands series, then you’ll ...

The Call Up film review

I got the pleasure of Heading along to a pre-screening of The Call Up a new film out on the 20th of May that blends cinema and games together. Now wait, I know what you’re all thinking “ah, jeez. Gamer films are normally rubbish, so few hit the mark” and I am inclined to agree. Coming from a gamer’s perspective on the film, I went in with very low expectations. Films and ga...

Battle Worlds: Kronos review

Battle Worlds: Kronos taps into the nostalgia of games such as Battle Isle and Advanced War, with its turn-based unit control, vast maps and strategic options, and challenging objectives. And whilst the challenge is truly testing at times, there’s a lot of fun and satisfaction to be had finally conquering the AI. As a brand new commander, you are tasked with taking command of a wide variety of lan...

The Park review

Take a trip to your local game store and the shelves are full of shooters, sports and adventure titles – the market is well and truly saturated – so when a title like The Park comes along I couldn’t help but sit up and take notice. The Park is a psychological horror game that makes no excuses for its two-hour campaign. At its dark heart is exploration and storytelling rather than combat, and why n...

Akzend 2: The World Beneath review

Match three games are very common, however, the truly compelling ones have their own unique hooks that lure you in and keep you engaged. Azkend 2: The World Beneath attempts to do this with a story acting as a frame device for the aforementioned matching of three, whilst also offering a wide variety of things to match as well as abilities to utilise that makes that job easier. The latter of these ...
