‘Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

I’m a big Borderlands fan, I’ve played the first two games way too much and I love them.  Tales of the Borderlands is just around the corner and I’ve finally made the leap and played Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.  With 2K Australia taking over development of the game though, I was worried that there would be […]

‘Never Alone [Kisima Innitchuna]‘ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Platform games have been around for almost as long as we’ve played computer games.  To try and keep them interesting through the years they have been adapted to be more puzzle based, been based around memorable characters and tested gamers to their limits.  Some though look to the narrative quality of the game to add […]

‘This War of Mine’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

War is something we see on television and in films, some of us even play it in games like Call of Duty, but we do so for entertainment.  We understand that there are wars out there and people get killed, but most of us are lucky and don’t have to face that.  This War of Mine […]

‘Randal’s Monday’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

If there is one thing that geeks like it’s a reference to their favourite game, television show or film.  Randal’s Monday is a new Point & Click adventure game that is full of them, everywhere you look you will see an Easter egg trying to get your attention.  Taking an old fashioned style to the […]

‘Lords of the Fallen’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Some will call Lords of the Fallen a Dark Souls rip-off and others will argue against that comparison. The truth is it fits somewhere in between. Lords of the Fallen borrows a lot from Dark Souls but tries to offer something different, giving a more linear experience and in some ways giving more fun for those […]

‘MX vs. ATV: Supercross’ Review (Xbox 360)

by Phil Wheat

As a gamer there are genres that I don’t play as often as others, RPGs being one and racing games the other. When it comes to the latter I tend to find racers that I love and stick with those – games such as Outrun and its sequel, Burnout Paradise, and Split Second (which is […]

‘Styx: Master of Shadows’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

I’m not a fan of stealth in games, my style is more to find the shortest route and blast my way through or stay at a distance and use sniping skills to take out my enemies. This is probably why it seems weird for me to review Styx: Master of Shadows, one of the most […]

‘The Vanishing of Ethan Carter’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Adventure games tend to have a set narrative, they like to guide you by the hand and lead you through the scenes to make sure you are doing things right and not deviating from the set path.  This has worked ever since the origins of computer games, right back to text-based adventures so why change […]

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 Superheroes’ Review (WiiU)

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 […]
