Review: Just Sing vs. Now That’s What I Call Sing 2 vs. We Sing (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

It’s been quite some time since video game store shelves were this packed with dance, rhythm and karaoke games – for the longest time it was left to Singstar Ultimate Party to hold the torch for the karaoke genre in the current gaming climate. Then came along Now That’s What I Call Sing and the […]

‘Moto Racer 4′ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

If I’m honest I’d forgotten all about the Moto Racer franchise and with good reason, it’s been over 15 years since the third game was released (although there was apparently a Nintendo DS version of the game from the same developers as this). Since then motor racing games have come a long way – be […]

‘Batman: The Telltale Series – Episode 5′ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

Telltale’s Batman has come to an end with City of Light, and in many ways, has delivered what we expect from the company. With plenty of uses of the new features brought to the Batman game, this episode does feel to be a step forward, but has Batman: The Telltale Series Episode 5 – City […]

‘The Little Acre’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

While adventure games seem to be dominated by Telltale’s high action style, sometimes it is nice to look back to the good old point and click adventures. This is where The Little Acre comes in, offering exactly that but with some little extra twists to the game play… The first thing you notice about The […]

‘Just Dance 2017′ (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

Wow. It has been a VERY long time since we reviewed a dance game here on Nerdly. So long ago that it was actually during our pre-Nerdly days as Blogomatic3000 that we last took at look at this small gaming sub-genre ( a genre that wasn’t that small back then). In fact the last games […]

‘Maize’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Corn fields are creepy, Stephen King taught us that. When you start playing a game though and see some of the corn seemingly taking a stroll through the rows, then it wouldn’t be long before you see death fast approaching. With Maize, which has released on PC though, death is the last thing you’ll be […]

‘Super Dungeon Bros’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

Straight from the outset the game shines with character, with the ‘Bros’ being challenged to take on the dungeon and you are even asked to ‘Press X to Rock’. After this though, the character is somewhat diminished as the procedural maps of the dungeon crawler load in and you prepare to battle. The fun soundtrack […]

‘Batman: The Telltale Series – Episode 4′ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

All it took was a glimpse of a certain character to get me excited for this episode. I didn’t worry that Bruce Wayne was going to be in danger in Telltale’s Batman Episode 4: Guardian of Gotham, or that Gotham could lose the protection of Batman. I finally got to see Telltale’s version of the […]

‘Batman: The Telltale Series – Episode 3′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When a story reaches its mid-point there is a danger that the excitement will lull a little, until of course it again picks up pace. Telltale’s Batman Episode 3: New World Order is the third episode of Telltale’s take on Batman, with Bruce Wayne’s life descending into chaos, but strangely lacking in some of the […]

‘Airheart: Tales of Broken Wings’ Early Access Preview (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

While October and November tends to be the time the big Triple A games start to bite at our wallets and steal all our cash, that doesn’t mean that Early Access on Steam doesn’t hold a few decent finds. One of these is Airheart: Tales of Broken Wings. A fishing and combat battle game that […]

‘Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

When choosing games to play, the JRPG can be an odd one. They have a certain style to them that is easy to love, yet are unashamedly eccentric in nature. That being said, I find I don’t have the time to invest in them. When I had the chance to dive back into the genre […]

‘Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

It is fair to say that Activision haven’t handled the release of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare well. The release of the game in such a restricted way created bad press, and an unpopularity around the release. The question is though, is Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare actually any good? There are certain rules I make for myself […]

‘Syndrome’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Halloween is just around the corner and gamers are looking for a few scares. With this in mind, it would seem that Syndrome is a game that has appeared at just the right time. Trapped in a space ship that appears to be infested with monsters, does it have what it takes to be scary? […]

‘DoDonPachi Resurrection’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Bullet hell shoot ‘em ups are exactly what they sound like…hell, with lots of bullets. When I got the chance to review DoDonPachi Resurrection, I did so reminiscing about the past shoot ‘em ups like Xenon 2, and R-Type and thought that it would be something like that. I was slightly wrong. If like me […]

‘Mantis Burn Racing’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

When I first heard about Mantis Burn Racing and saw it was a top-down racer my thoughts went back to the old racers that had a fixed camera, and how much I disliked that style. Thankfully while that is one camera option for this game, it turned out I was going to be pleasantly surprised. […]

‘Manual Samuel’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

We tend to take for granted many of the things our bodies do automatically for us. It knows when to blink, when to take a breath, it is designed to survive. Imagine how fun it would be to have to control these things manually? That is the idea behind Manual Samuel. Sam (Samuel) is a […]

If you are a fan of adventure games, you’ll no doubt know the history of point-and click-adventures. Now we have the Telltale Games variety that get all the attention, but what of the traditional old school games style? Turns out that they giving up the fight just yet, as The Tale of Doris and the […]

‘Virginia’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

If a game is described as being like Twin Peaks and True Detective, it is going to catch my interest. Playing Virginia, the interesting thing is, not only is the story inspired by Twin Peaks style shows, but the game plays like a television show too. Experiencing the game through the eyes of FBI agent […]

‘Clustertruck’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Games let us do things that we’d never dream of in real life. One of the fun things is parkour. The ability to jump from building to building or find an impossible jump and succeed with the landing is something we can do in gaming worlds without any real danger. This is what makes Clustertruck […]

Games come in many forms, and there are so many styles out there that there is enough to please everyone. With these different style of games though comes the ones where they are given names that sometimes stigmatise them, for often stupid reasons.

Having now played the second episode of the new Telltale Batman game, it can’t be easy for the writers, in fact it must be worrying. One of the biggest games the company has worked on, it is also one of the most protected of DC characters. With Batman: The Telltale Series Episode 2 – Children […]
