‘Under Night In-Birth: Exe Late[st]‘ Review (PS4)

by Matthew Smail

There is no shortage of two-dimensional fighting games on the PlayStation 4, so it might seem like an odd decision to revitalise this relatively niche effort that was first launched on arcade cabinets back in 2012, before making the way to PlayStation 3.

‘InnerSpace’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Matthew Smail

With the still-painful memory of No Man’s Sky still firmly embedded in the cerebral cortex of many gamers, InnerSpace seems destined for a rough ride and possibly, a hard landing. Billed as the latest flight-exploration game and produced by relative newcomers PolyKnight Games, Innerspace has at the very least avoided the same kind of ridiculous […]

First Impressions: ‘Dragon Ball FighterZ’ (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

I’m not going to lie, I’ve been suffering from Dragon Ball video game fatigue of late. Since the days of the PS3 there has been little to differentiate between each new title besides the odd story tweak – otherwise the similar game mechanics and graphics haven’t really warranted buying each and every game. But things […]
