‘Maid of Sker’ Review (PS4)

by Chris Cummings

Developed and published by Wales Interactive who have previously worked on games I’ve reviewed here on Nerdly such as The Complex and Soul Axiom, Maid of Sker is not unlike those games in the sense that there’s a strong story at the core of it, and everything else is secondary to a degree. This game, […]

Second Opinion: ‘The Last of Us Part 2’ Review (PS4) *SPOILERS*

by Chris Cummings

I’m not sure there’s been many more highly anticipated games in the recent history of gaming than The Last of Us Part 2. The first game was a triumph, blending horror and character-based drama to tell a story of hope, redemption, loyalty and pain. It was incredible, and it became one of the most beloved […]

‘The Last of Us Part 2’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

I’ll be honest. I’ve had over a week to really reflect on this game and I’m still digesting what it had to say. Prior to its release, there was already controversy thanks to the unfortunate leaks which I purposefully dodged which created backlash from fans saying it was a betrayal of the game or that […]

‘Maneater’ Review (PS4)

by Matthew Smail

With the evergreen popularity of Jaws, and the close proximity of trashy B-Movie stories to video games, I’m genuinely surprised that we haven’t had hundreds of shark themed video games. I honestly can’t fathom (lol) why there haven’t been more, but that may change going forwards if Maneater realises it’s full potential. This game has […]

‘Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 2’ Review (PS4)

by Chris Cummings

Trails of Cold Steel is a series that I, sadly, have been very much unfamiliar with. The cool opportunity to play this title came up, however, and so I gave it a shot, without the knowledge of what I was getting myself into or any information about the previous titles in the series. Many fans, […]

by Phil Wheat

The karaoke game train rolls on with the only video game franchise in the ever-diminishing genre, Let’s Sing, still around! Now in it’s 2020 iteration, the RavensCourt/Voxler title is now seemingly the only karaoke game left in a market that used to be completely saturated.

by Xenia Grounds

We’ve reached the end of a very long road. Sean and Daniel’s journey is over in its entirety. Over this past year and three months of watching their story, it’s warmed and broke my heart so often. Their relationship has made everything very worthwhile. I’ve never seen a game that so accurately captures what it’s […]

‘Utawarerumono: Zan’ Review (PS4)

The Utawarerumono franchise is something of an oddity. The original Utawarerumono was first released in 2004, but only came out in Japan. THe first game to make it to the West was Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception, which was swiftly followed by Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth in the latter half of 2017. Skip forward to 2019 […]

‘Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes Complete Edition’ Review (PS4)

by Chris Cummings

I remember all the way back in 2008 playing the original No More Heroes on the Nintendo Wii. It was a fresh, original, quirky and vibrant action video game that was really funny, very weird and a whole ton of fun. I hadn’t revisited the game since, or anything in the No More Heroes world, […]

Having never played the original The Surge and, upon reading into it, finding out that it was dismissed by some as a Dark Souls clone, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect from this sequel. After spending several hours with The Surge 2 I was surprised to find that, whilst it does come from that […]

I’ve been a fan of the Telltale The Walking Dead series right from the very beginning. In fact, I was a big Telltale fan. I loved many of their titles, from The Wolf Among Us to Borderlands to their Game of Thrones title, but The Walking Dead was their best work, bringing a brand new […]
