‘The Crow’s Eye’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

When a game opens up with you in an old Victorian style building, there are some assumptions made. This is what happens when you first load up The Crow’s Eye. Wandering the corridors of the Medical University of Crowswood though, it isn’t long before things start to change. In 1947 four students disappeared within the […]

‘Switch or Die Trying’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Platform games had to adapt to survive in the latest generations of gaming, and they did so in many ways. You have the 3D style where the open world environment extended the way platforms were interacted with, then you had the ones that stayed 2D (or 2D.5) and upped the challenge. This is where Switch […]

‘Conan Exiles’ Early Access (P)Review

by Paul Metcalf

I never thought I’d really be into survival games, but looking at my Steam library tells a tale of zombie outbreaks and dinosaur training. With the likes of H1Z1 and ARK in my playlist, Conan Exiles probably fits right in… My style of survival is to be a loner though, and to enjoy the ability […]

‘Styx: Shards of Darkness’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

There is something about being mocked by Styx during Styx: Shards of Darkness that reveals what has improved since Styx: Master of Shadows. The green assassin with an attitude has received a sense of humour overhaul and it definitely shows. If you’ve played the original game, you’ll know what to expect in terms of gameplay: this is […]

‘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 […]

by Paul Metcalf

If you are a fan of good old school platform games, you tend to have a love affair with any that happen to find their way to you. This is what happened to me when I was able to try out Rise and Shine. Like some relationships though, the punishment they cause can sometimes be […]

‘Maize’ Review (PC)

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 […]

‘Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

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? There are certain rules I make for myself […]
