‘The Wolf Among Us Chapter 2: Smoke & Mirrors’ Review (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

It’s been some time since last October when we played the first chapter of The Wolf Among Us, it had us hooked and left us waiting for the next chapter.  Since then Telltale Games released the first chapter of The Walking Dead: Season Two and made announcements of the Borderlands games and Game of Thrones. Now […]

‘Dungeon Keeper’ App Review

by Paul Metcalf

I guess the first thing I should say when I discuss Dungeon Keeper is that I’m a fan of the original game.  When I played the new version that EA has released for iOS and Android devices my review basically was “This is a good freemium game, but it’s not Dungeon Keeper.”  So that is […]

‘Flappy Bird’ App Review

by Paul Metcalf

It all starts off fairly innocent, you load up the App Store on your phone and find your way to the games section looking for something to download.  There at the top of the chart is something called Flappy Bird, but you don’t bother to download it and give it no thought at all.  Then people […]

‘Rayman Legends’ Review (PS3)

by Paul Metcalf

When looking at the heroes of platform games it’s easy to think of the two champions and kings of the hill, Sonic and Mario, who have managed to live side by side and be accepted as the dual kings of the genre. There have been some pretenders to the crown and many of these have […]

‘Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I Don’t Know!’ Review (PS3)

by Paul Metcalf

Adventure Time should be a cartoon that can easily be adapted to a game, many of its episodes tend to fit the very structure of a level in an adventure and the pop culture references provide so much material that it could be the best game ever.  This is one of the quandaries that Adventure […]

‘Deadfall Adventures’ Review (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

When it comes to first person shooting games now people tend to think of the likes of Call of Duty and Battlefield where the action is mainly based on multiplayer battles and the solo campaigns are somewhat of an afterthought.  Sometimes we get lucky though and we get something like Deadfall Adventures which while it may not […]

‘Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

It’s fair to say that the horror game has made somewhat of a small comeback in PC gaming, with Outlast being released and now Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs.  These two titles have brought back atmosphere and more importantly upped the fear factor, with some saying A Machine for Pigs is one of the scariest games […]

‘TK Baha’s Bloody Harvest’ Review (Borderlands 2 DLC)

by Paul Metcalf

When Borderlands 2 was released it’s arguable that there was one character that was missing, whether he was in zombie form or alive where was TK Baha? Well after the first season of DLC had passed and everybody thought that was it was over and time to look forward to Borderlands 3, TK has made […]

‘Grand Theft Auto V’ Review (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

When looking at the Grand Theft Auto games it comes as no surprise that it all started in 1997 a top down 2D classic that caught attention for the level of violence it portrayed on gamers screens.  Imagine that, 2D and caused controversy about violence.  Now we are in 2013 and Grand Theft Auto V is released, […]

‘WWE 2K14′ Video Game Review

by Chris Cummings

I have been buying wrestling video games since I was a kid, being a fan of wrestling for 21 of my 30 years, I have always found pleasure playing the games each year, and as I get older there is nostalgia to it also. Sure, not every year delivers a diamond of a game, but […]

Oh my god… Just when you thought Techland’s Dead Island couldn’t get any worse, along comes the sequel! I think it’s safe to say gamers were severely burned by the original Dead Island – after all the original filmic trailer bore ZERO resemblance to the finished product, which itself was full of bugs, glitches and […]
