’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 […]

‘Pulse’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Most games treat the main character almost like a super hero, giving them the ability to withstand more than the average human could, and powers to give them an added edge. This is what allows us to enjoy the game, the escape from reality. In search for a new experience though some games have started […]

‘Game of Thrones: Episode 6 – The Ice Dragon’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

After the impressive way that Telltale Games managed to wrap up Tales From the Borderlands I wondered if Games of Thrones would find similar success. With Games of Thrones: Episode 6 – The Ice Dragon there were a lot of story strands to wrap up, and the problem may be that not all of them […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Syndicate’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

With the release of Assassin’s Creed Unity last year Ubisoft provided fans with a broken game and they weren’t happy… With this year’s Assassin’s Creed Syndicate the company had a big job on their hands, they had to win back the hearts and minds of their biggest critics. The gamers themselves. Setting the game in […]

‘Fallout 4′ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

NOTE: This review/initial thoughts is based on 10 solid hours of gameplay… There has been so much hype around Fallout 4 that it would be hard for the game to live up to what people expected it to be. One thing I noticed before its release though was the complaints around the game, mainly around […]

‘Jackbox Party Pack 2′ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

If you are a fan of games, you’ll know that there are many ways to play. Some are more social than others, while some want you to play alone. Jackbox Party Pack 2 is a set of party games that wants you to enjoy it with as many people as possible, and ends up being […]

‘Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Before I start this review of Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide, I should probably say that I’m not a huge Warhammer fan though it always intrigues me, and I dip into many of its games. What I am though is a fan of trying out new experiences. This is why I took part in the beta, […]

‘BlazBlue Chronophantasma Extend’ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

As someone approaching 40 (dear god, really?) I’ve played my fair share of video games. Probably more than my fair share. From the days of the ZX81, through Commodore 64 and into the console era with the NES, SNES, Megadrive, Saturn, PS1, PS2 etc., And for the longest time my favourite genre was the platformer […]

‘Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

With Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End coming in 2016, what is the best way to get players re-invested into the world of Drake? Yep, that’s right by remastering the games. Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection brings together the first three games in 1080p and 60fps, but is it worth spending the money on? With Uncharted: […]

‘Now That’s What I Call Sing’ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

Once upon a time I was a hardcore fan of the rhythm/singing game genre. Singstar, Guitar Hero, Rockband… You name it I’ve played it. However my experiences, and more importantly my love, of music games in recent years have waned. In fact I haven’t touched any of “karaoke” style video games since We Sing Pop […]

‘Transformers Devastation’ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

In the history of video games there have been a LOT of Transformers games; from the 1986 Japan-only NES game Mystery of Convoy (later available in some countries via Nintendo’s Virtual Console) to the more recent Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark. And when it comes to video games Transformers titles are definitely a mixed […]

‘Tales From the Borderlands: Ep 5 – Vault of the Traveler’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

With the coming of the last episode of Tales From the Borderlands, I did wonder how they would end the story. Little did I know that Tales From the Borderlands: Episode 5 – The Vault of the Traveler would be one of the best, if not the best Telltale game to date. Game of Thrones […]
