‘Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

I’ve always stayed away from a game like Guild Wars 2 because I’ve known the amount of time I’d have to put into it. The fact I love the “grind” of games makes me a prime target for the style of gameplay that Guild Wars requires. Giving into Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire though, […]

‘Project Cars 2′ Review (PS4)

by Matthew Smail

Whilst I’m not intentionally going directly to the end of this review (without passing Go! or collecting two hundred pounds) I feel like I simply must start by saying something that I would usually reserve for my conclusion.

‘Star Trek: Discovery 1×03 – Context is for Kings’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Now that the first two episodes are out-of-the-way, Star Trek: Discovery can get down to business with the real story.  Feeling much more like the traditional “first episode after a pilot”, Context is for Kings feels like this is the real start of Star Trek: Discovery.
