A Way Out Review

When A Way Out was unveiled at E3 2017, it felt like a breath of fresh air. Firstly, there are seldom prison escape games available, and secondly, games designed to be played solely via co-op are few and far between. Not only that, but the story seemed interesting, and with Josef Fares at the helm (the man behind Brothers: A Tale of Two […]

Lawbreakers Review

At first glance, Lawbreakers seems like a hero-based shooter, with 9 different character types each equipped with a different set of abilities and a role in gameplay. Each character has a unique set of 1-2 weapons, as well as a unique combat ability and a special attack/ultimate ability. It quickly becomes apparent, though, that there isn’t the same focus on […]

Aragami Review

Stealth is something that has been integrated into numerous video games over the last decade, and over that time the term “stealth” has meant less and less as even the most basic principles of the term are ignored. Big budget franchises such as Assassin’s Creed all have elements of a stealth game hidden deep within their code, but it’s become somewhat […]

Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force

Less than two months shy of its release on PS3, Fairy Fencer F is back with Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force exclusively on the Playstation 4. While not just a remaster, Advent Dark Force adds a slew of new features and gameplay options including three new unique paths to adventure through the game (with new endings), double the party size, difficulty […]

Dying Light: The Following

Dying Light came at a time when Zombies were going out of fashion, The Walking Dead seemed to have peaked in its entertainment factor and you couldn’t browse a games store without finding title after disappointing title based on the undead. I always felt it was a shame that such an excellent game came just that little bit too late. […]

Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair

This generation has been absolutely full of remakes and updated ports, where what once was a simple success could live again on a more modern platform. With Sleeping Dogs, Deadpool, and Metro all seeing new lives in the modern age, one would begin to wonder when the doors would open for the hidden gems of the prior generation. Well, Earth […]

Blood Bowl

I’ll admit, I was late to the party when it came to playing the original Blood Bowl game. In fact, many years late. That being said, once I finally joined the party, I had an absolute blast with the game. For those who haven’t played the original or the sequel, the premise is simple enough: Build a team of Warhammer-Universe ‘American […]

SOMA

From the makers of Amnesia: The Dark Decent, Frictional Games has brought us an intriguing new psychological thriller game about consciousness and identity: SOMA. This review will contain mild spoilers of what happens at the beginning of the game. If you do not know what happens in the first 30 minutes of SOMA, and do not want to know, I’d recommend checking back […]

Farming Simulator 15

Calm down everyone, the game you’ve all been waiting for is here… Farming Simulator 15 has arrived! Once more being developed by Giants Software, it has been stirring up excitement with some very well edited trailers. I haven’t played a farm simulation for around two years now; hence I expected it to have flourished into a masterpiece of a simulator […]

Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin

Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin will have you questioning everything you thought you knew about Dark Souls 2. Was that dragon always there? I though these knights didn’t respawn? I’m sure he dropped some Saints Ashes last time? For the uninitiated this remaster offers all of the infamous challenge and varied locations, but for those returning to […]
