‘DoDonPachi Resurrection’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Bullet hell shoot ‘em ups are exactly what they sound like…hell, with lots of bullets. When I got the chance to review DoDonPachi Resurrection, I did so reminiscing about the past shoot ‘em ups like Xenon 2, and R-Type and thought that it would be something like that. I was slightly wrong. If like me […]

‘Mantis Burn Racing’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

When I first heard about Mantis Burn Racing and saw it was a top-down racer my thoughts went back to the old racers that had a fixed camera, and how much I disliked that style. Thankfully while that is one camera option for this game, it turned out I was going to be pleasantly surprised. […]

‘Manual Samuel’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

We tend to take for granted many of the things our bodies do automatically for us. It knows when to blink, when to take a breath, it is designed to survive. Imagine how fun it would be to have to control these things manually? That is the idea behind Manual Samuel. Sam (Samuel) is a […]

If you are a fan of adventure games, you’ll no doubt know the history of point-and click-adventures.

‘Virginia’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

If a game is described as being like Twin Peaks and True Detective, it is going to catch my interest. Playing Virginia, the interesting thing is, not only is the story inspired by Twin Peaks style shows, but the game plays like a television show too. Experiencing the game through the eyes of FBI agent […]

‘Clustertruck’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Games let us do things that we’d never dream of in real life. One of the fun things is parkour. The ability to jump from building to building or find an impossible jump and succeed with the landing is something we can do in gaming worlds without any real danger. This is what makes Clustertruck […]

Games come in many forms, and there are so many styles out there that there is enough to please everyone. With these different style of games though comes the ones where they are given names that sometimes stigmatise them, for often stupid reasons. One of these is the “Walking Simulator” like Dear Esther: Landmark Edition […]

by Paul Metcalf

Having now played the second episode of the new Telltale Batman game, it can’t be easy for the writers, in fact it must be worrying. One of the biggest games the company has worked on, it is also one of the most protected of DC characters. With Batman: The Telltale Series Episode 2 – Children […]

‘Assetto Corsa’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

While there aren’t too many racing games on the PlayStation 4 at the moment, there are still some really good ones dominating the console. With the likes of Project Cars and Driveclub which are my personal favourites, DiRT Rally and F1 2016 are adding quality for the racing fans. With Gran Turismo Sport also on […]

‘Just Cause 3: Bavarium Sea Heist’ Review (PS4/PC)

by Paul Metcalf

When Just Cause 3 was originally released I had a lot of fun with it. After completing it though I didn’t purchase the Air, Land & Sea Expansion Pass but waited until it was fully released. With Just Cause 3: Bavarium Sea Heist the set is now complete, but is it worth playing? If you’ve […]

‘Batman: The Telltale Series – Episode 1′ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

If you’ve played enough of the past Telltale Games you know that there is a need for a change. The games are fun, and tell good tales, but the engine itself is starting to creak. With Batman: The Telltale Series Episode 1 – Realm of Shadows, these changes may be showing signs of coming. In […]

‘Party Hard’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

The life of a serial killer can be a hard one, especially if you are caught too soon. Party Hard is now on the PlayStation 4 and gives you the chance to stealthily kill off partying neighbours just looking for a good time. Are we getting sick of these “retro” looking games about mass murder, […]

‘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 […]

‘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 […]
