‘Gryphon Knight Epic’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

While some games are designed to show off just how powerful the new console hardware is these days, or how impressive they can look on top end PCs, there are also games that look back to the 2D days of platform games and shoot ‘em ups. Gryphon Knight Epic is yet another one of those, […]

‘Tales from the Borderlands: Ep 4 – Escape Plan Bravo’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

If there is one thing you can say about Telltale Games, it’s that they take themselves too seriously at times. The Walking Dead hit hard at your emotions, Game of Thrones has tried the same. Tales from the Borderlands brings back the fun – for the most part – it also tried to keep things […]

‘Missing: An Interactive Thriller – Episode One’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

If there was one game style that you would not expect to come back it would be FMV, it was a definitely a Nineties thing and with technology moving on so much with graphical quality there is no real reason to bring it back. That of course, does not mean that a game is not […]

‘Life is Strange – Episode 4: Dark Room’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

When Life is Strange Episode 4: Dark Room was downloading I knew that it would be a tough one to get through. I made certain choices that pushed my game a certain way, and now I had to face them. Without giving away spoilers, I’d saw we were taught that messing with time has consequences, […]

‘Poly Bridge’ Early Access Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Building a bridge should be easy; it should be just creating a road that goes from point A to B over a unpassable area. Play Poly Bridge though and you’ll find that there is a lot standing in the way of holding a bridge up in the air, and physics suck. Poly Bridge tends to […]

‘Skyhill’ Preview (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

If the apocalypse strikes and the monsters have taken over would the penthouse in a hotel be the best place to find yourself? Skyhill is a game that starts you off trapped in the luxury apartment, with the aim to not only survive but make it the bottom floor, or that is what I’ve been […]

‘Game of Thrones: Episode Five – A Nest of Vipers’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

While the illusion of choice is somewhat waning now in Telltale Games, Game of Thrones: Episode Five – A Nest of Vipers proves that they can still tell a good story and kick you in the gut. More importantly, they can create a game that can stand tall in the world of Game of Thrones. Especially […]

‘Tales from the Borderlands: Episode 3 – Catch a Ride’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Telltale Games have reached a level with me where I enjoy the story, but the choices don’t have that much risk to them, if anything I’ve become cavalier with them. This isn’t a bad thing but there is a level of familiarity that tends to disconnect me from any danger and emotion. That was until […]

Written by Abid Gangat As I trundled up the steps to where EA were meeting with various press and media, I found myself being introduced to Alex Grimbley by one of the EA team. Alex suggested I try FIFA on mobile to see what the company have done to make one of their most successful […]

‘LEGO Worlds’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

LEGO seems to be something that is universally loved, unless we stand on a piece of it then we end up swearing at it of course!  When Minecraft was created we were given a huge world created by blocks, and you could either try to fight for survival or just be creative and build whatever you want.  […]

‘The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

When games suffer long delays the worry tends to set in.  The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was arguably one of the biggest releases for the so-called next generation of gaming, but with the release date constantly changing the question seemed to change from how good it would be, to what would we finally get in […]

‘The Escapists’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

Prison is hell, if you are not being beaten up by the other inmates you are being bullied by the guards to follow their orders. What do you do to survive? You learn to fit in, learn the schedules of the guards, form a team and make your escape! That’s not what you really do […]

With the release of Telltale’s Game of Thrones: Episode 4 – Sons of Winter we seem to finally be on course to get episodes released at a pace that won’t kill the flow of the story.  Events on the television show may be causing fans to discuss just how dark it can get before it […]

If you’ve played the first two episodes of Life is Strange you’ll already know that it wears its geek crown proudly, to hipster levels of whimsy.  Now that the third episode Chaos Theory has been released we have hit the episode where the game has revealed its ace card and truly become something special, to […]

‘Project Root’ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

Project Root is a shoot ‘em up style game from independent game developer OPQAM and indie games partner Reverb Triple XP, which tasks players with taking out numerous targets, both on the ground and in the air, while simultaneously dodging an insane amount of on-screen enemy projectiles. Think Japanese bullet-hell shooter meets Desert (or Jungle) […]

’3D Realms Anthology’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

There is a breed of gamer, they are getting on a bit now but they still remember the hell of PC gaming in the nineties.  This was when numbers like 2086, 286, 386 and 486 actually meant something other than being bad lines in Hackers and multi-core computing was not something even considered in the […]

‘Nightbanes’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

There is no denying the fact that digital collectable card games are popular. In many ways this makes them perfect for the free-to-play model where money can be grabbed back from the player when they are hooked and need the better decks to aid them in battle. This may sound cynical but by now we […]

‘Tower of Guns’ Review (Xbox One)

by Phil Wheat

Billed as “a relentless celebration of everything you love about old-school first-person shooters”, Tower of Guns is the kind of FPS experience that old school gamers will instantly recognise. From the get-go its obvious that this title takes its inspiration from classic ID software games such as Doom, Quake et al., and it’s all the better […]
