‘Tales of Berseria’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

If there is one style of game that has the ability to take you to strange places it has to be the JRPG. What this strangeness gives us though is games such as Tales of Berseria, where you play a Daemon with a blood sucking claw who wages a battle of vengeance against against exorcists. […]

‘Resident Evil 7: Biohazard’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

When it comes to gaming, we tend to take change badly. Whether it be an update to the way the game runs, major changes to a franchise story, and even a lead character, we just don’t like it. There are times though that these changes can be good, and can help rejuvenate interest with the […]

Corn fields are creepy, Stephen King taught us that. When you start playing a game though and see some of the corn seemingly taking a stroll through the rows, then it wouldn’t be long before you see death fast approaching. With Maize, which has released on PC though, death is the last thing you’ll be […]

It is fair to say that Activision haven’t handled the release of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare well. The release of the game in such a restricted way created bad press, and an unpopularity around the release. The question is though, is Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare actually any good?

Bullet hell shoot ‘em ups are exactly what they sound like…hell, with lots of bullets.
