‘Overwatch’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

Overwatch is a game that I feel I am somewhat obsessed with right now. I’ve had my eye on it for a while, becoming jealous of the people lucky enough to be in the Closed Beta. Then when the Open Beta came around I played it on both PC and PlayStation 4 finding it fun […]

‘Total War: Warhammer’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

I’ve always been a fan of the Total War games, but found myself drifting away from them after Empire: Total War. As a fantasy fan though, Total War: Warhammer pulled me back in somewhat, especially with the trailers which showed the epic battles of humanity and the creatures of the Old World. Was this a […]

‘Doom’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

There are probably people in the gaming world that don’t understand the importance of Doom and the way it changed the face of shooting games. Sure, Wolfenstein 3D may have been the first, but it was merely a prototype of what was to come. With this in mind, does the new Doom live up to […]

‘Battleborn’ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

Let me get something off my chest before delving further into this review… I’m not a huge fan of Borderlands or MOBA’s either for that matter, so I’m not exactly the target audience for the likes of Battleborn. But even I was willing to give the game the benefit of the doubt, even despite my […]

‘Aegis of Earth: Protonovus Assault’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

Anime can make anything fun, there is just so much energy in it that you can become intoxicated by its nature, and its often manic style. Aegis of Earth: Protonovus Assault for the PlayStation 4 is a game that uses the anime style to full effect, and features quite an abundance of characters. The only […]

‘Stories: The Path of Destinies’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

While so many people were obsessed with not dying in Dark Souls 3, another release appeared in the PlayStation Store that promised furry creatures and plenty of sword fighting. Stories: The Path of Destinies is something a little different though, and at £8.99 a must buy game. At the start of the game we are […]

‘Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel’ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel, already an arcade favourite, features a host of heroines from Nitroplus’ expansive and prolific character catalogue. Players select a main character – including Super Sonico, who will be playable for the first time in this console release and Saber from Fate/Stay Night (a personal favourite) – along with two partner […]

‘Dark Souls 3′ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

I’m always apprehensive about the Dark Souls games, but once I let myself accept that death was inevitable I taught myself to get used to it. I’ve not got to the end of Dark Souls 3 yet, so this is my first impressions of the game, but I will say this…I think I’m in love… […]

‘Senran Kagura Esitval Versus’ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

You know there are times when a review code from a PR company or distributor just won’t do. You HAVE to have a physical copy of the game for your own. This is one of those times…. Having been exposed to the Senran Kagura franchise via the two Nintendo 3DS games, I was eagerly awaiting […]

First Impressions: ‘Doom’ Closed Beta (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

I’m probably showing my age when I remember the hype around the original Doom. While Wolfenstein 3D was the first-person shooter that made an impression, it was Doom that really made the genre explode – by not only throwing the blood around in a glorious explosion of brutality but brought multiplayer gaming into the mix […]

‘The Division’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

The Division is turning into an interesting beast, especially for solo players like me. There are so many articles that say it is not designed for single-players alone and that at level 30 it will hit you hard, but at level 26 I’m holding up hope that I can survive it. Why am I sticking […]

’101 Ways to Die’ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

One thing that’s really great about this current generation of consoles is the proliferation of indie games that have made their way to both the PS4 and Xbox One. Obviously it’ a trend started by the likes of the XBLA and Steam, but it’s only recently that there truly has been a huge wealth of […]

‘Superhot’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

When it comes to first person shooting games innovation isn’t really something you expect. The idea is you point a gun at people and you shoot, what else can you do? Superhot is the answer that you may not expect. Prepare to show Keanu Reeves how to really manipulate The Matrix… There is a campaign […]

‘Layers of Fear’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

In my Early Access (P)review of Layers of Fear I found it to be an atmospheric game that had potential. I also compared it to P.T as it obviously uses that game as an inspiration for some of the things we see in the game. Now ready for release as a full game, is it […]

‘Firewatch’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

Firewatch may be described as a walking simulator. Some may even say that as something of an insult. But the fact is, this game is more of a hiking (or orienteering) simulator that tells a story… A story that is well worth experiencing. The best way to play Firewatch, as with many games of this […]

‘Street Fighter V’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

So Street Fighter V is finally out and when the servers are up we’ve all been playing it. You’d have to be hidden under a rock not to know about the lack of an arcade mode, and restricted Story Mode so is it worth playing now? Here are my thoughts. I’m not a social gamer, […]

‘Earth Defense Force 4.1′ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

There are some gamers out there that have bought and played all the AAA titles released across numerous consoles for decades. Then there are people who’ve bought and played every low-budget (sometimes feeling like no-budget) game released by independent distributors for years… I fall into the latter camp. Ever since the PS2 era I have […]

‘Lifeline’ – The Creepiest Build Your Own Adventure Game Yet

by Catherina Gioino

Screaming rats. Possessed humans. A non-gender specific student astronaut. Of all the things I was told I can be, I never thought I would ever get a chance to be a student astronaut. I mean, astronaut, yeah, I can do that, but not a student astronaut, let alone one lost in space with screaming rats […]

‘LEGO Marvel’s Avengers’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

When it comes to LEGO games they are pretty reliable. They have that humour that we can expect, they understand the audience they are catering for and they know how to treat the licenses they are entrusted with well… Which is exactly what they have done with LEGO Marvel’s Avengers. While we’ve seen Marvel characters […]

‘Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo’ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

I have a storied history with racing games. Back in the days of the NES and Commodore 64 I loved nothing more than playing Outrun and Rad Racer – you know the types of racing games I mean, the arcade-style racers where you could put pedal to the metal and drift round tracks at speed. […]

‘Mordheim: City of the Damned’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Mordheim: City of the Damned is the type of game I tend to not be good at. While playing it tends to punish me for being too impulsive, and I’ve not got the patience to handle the resources that I need to control. When it plays so well though, it’s also a game that keeps […]

‘Clandestine’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Some games, while they offer a single player experience thrive off being social. However Clandestine is well thought out enough to let one player succeed, but to truly find your groove you need another person to work with you. In the game, the year is 1996, five years after the Soviet Union has fallen. With […]
