Review: The Walking Dead – Season 2 Episode 5 (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

Season two of The Walking Dead is over and finally the story comes to a close providing us with an understanding of exactly what we were heading towards.  With a season full of hard choices and the feeling that every move made was a mistake the real message in No Going Back is that this is about […]

Review: The Walking Dead – Season 2 Episode 4 (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

I should hate Telltale Games, especially with The Walking Dead Season 2. Now onto the fourth episode, Amid the Ruins we escape from the chaos at the end of the last episode and while in the past the game has been about the dangers faced from outside the group itself, Amid the Ruins pulls focus right back to internal […]

‘The Wolf Among Us Chapter 5: Cry Wolf’ Review (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

The Wolf Among Us has simmered, waiting to boil over through the first four episodes…like the wolf trying to break out of Bigby’s skin.  We’ve seen some action from him as he fights for the truth behind the Fable deaths, but only really seen the Wolf come out once and even then it didn’t have full […]

‘Blockstorm’ – Hands On Preview (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Early Access on Steam is something that has really opened up innovation in consumer feedback.  As the games sold using this system are still in development, this means that feedback provided can be used to update the game based on what the gamers hope to get in the final product.  This then in theory leads […]

‘The Escapists’ – Hands On Preview (PC)

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 […]

‘NES Remix 2′ Review (WiiU)

by Phil Wheat

As a fan of all things retro it’s all-too-tempting to spend a fortune downloading Virtual Console titles from Nintendo’s eShop, however that means you’re replaying games which (at least in may case) I played to death as a kid. Super Mario Bros., Metroid, etc. I had, and played the lot. So to re-buy them – […]

‘The Wolf Among Us Chapter 4: In Sheeps Clothing’ Review (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

After the battle of A Crooked Mile, Bigby is in bad shape, this leads to a very painful scene where he needs some major fixing, something the gamer takes part in, in a scene that will make you cringe.   We now know who the enemy is and have an idea of what we have to […]

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes features an original story crossing the entire Marvel Universe and sees players take on the role of their favourite Marvel characters like Spider-Man, Iron Man, Wolverine, Thor, Captain America and the Hulk, as they assemble to battle against some of the most menacing Marvel Super Villains, including dastardly Doctor Octopus, the ghastly Green […]

Review: The Walking Dead – Season 2 Episode 3 (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

The Walking Dead Season 2 – Episode 3: In Harm’s Way has finally changed the way I make decisions with Clementine.  I can’t really point out what caused this because that would be obvious spoilers but In Harm’s Way is an episode that is deceptively slow and much more discussion intensive than earlier episodes.  The fact […]

‘Daylight’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

As a horror fan I love games based on the genre. I like to stick my headphones on turn off the lights and actually feel the creepy atmosphere take over as I get lost in the game. Recently we’ve had two games, Outlast and Daylight both feature a character stuck in a spooky old hospital […]

‘Full Bore’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

I’m the type of gamer who often likes to just explore without the threat of constantly dying. I’ll have my moments where I’ll venture into something like Dark Souls 2 but for the most part it’s fun to just discover things. This is why adventure games last longer for me… and games like Full Bore. Full Bore was born […]

‘MXGP’ Review (PS3)

by Paul Metcalf

When it comes to motor bike racing I tend to think of Superbikes and Motor GP, I’ve even played some of the games, though not for many years.  When loading up MXGP and making my way through the menu system to get to an actual race I knew that the races would be muddy and […]

‘Goat Simulator’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

What can you say about a game that was released on April 1st? Simple really, it was designed to be a joke.  Goat Simulator has something of a cult following now, it was made for fun and released as is including bugs and gamers are pretty much told to just go for it. The game […]

‘Life Goes On’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

If you have played games at all you know that death is always there.  The platform game puts those little traps, whether it be a jump too far, the monster ready to pounce or even a spiked pit just to take away those precious lives.  Life Goes On though is one of those different games […]

‘Dark Souls 2′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

If there is one thing I hate in a game its dying and losing progress that I have made.  What normally happens if this occurs is that I turn the game off and probably swear a lot, this is what many people would call a “Rage Quit”.  Why do I bring this up? Well the […]

‘Spelunky’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Did you ever play a game called Rick Dangerous? The fact I’m asking that probably ages me slightly.  It was a platform games based on Indiana Jones and the controls were horrible.  What Rick Dangerous had though was charm that kept on calling you back, and this is why Spelunky, a very similar character keeps on calling me […]

‘The Wolf Among Us Chapter 3: The Crooked Mile’ Review (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

Sometimes I do wonder why I put up with Telltale Games and their adventures.  If it’s not The Walking Dead, now we have The Wolf Among Us to push us towards those hard decisions we don’t want to make, and when we do get rushed into them, realise we just did the wrong thing.  With […]

‘South Park: The Stick of Truth’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

South Park: The Stick of Truth was met with excitement by fans when it was first revealed, but nobody probably expected the fight the game itself would have to get release.  First with the death of THQ then with delays added onto it, the signs weren’t that good.  With the delays being used to improve the […]

‘Deadlings’ Review (iOS)

by Paul Metcalf

As a fan of the game Lemmings in its original form I remember the obsession of getting as many of the weird little creatures through the level as possible, though it was always fun to see how they could be killed.  The aim though was to make it through the levels by utilising the skills […]

‘Senran Kagura Burst’ Review (3DS)

by Phil Wheat

If there’s ever been a point of controversy in video games it’s those “weird” Japanese games that never get ported across to Europe and the US – you know the ones: those that feature gratuitous, often lingering shots of girls battling it out, be it in a beat ‘em up or JRPG. Back in the […]

Review: The Walking Dead – Season 2 Episode 2 (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

Oh The Walking Dead you know just where to stick that dagger don’t you? When I finished the first episode of The Walking Dead Season Two I should have known what was coming, it was just a way of easing you into the trap before it ripped your heart right out of your chest.  Looking […]
