‘Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus’ Review (PS4)

by Matthew Smail

“Make America Nazi Free Again.” Just one of the highly emotive straplines used to promote Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus in the past few months and certainly, it feels, the most relevant.

‘Chaos; Child’ Review (PS4)

by Matthew Smail

Set loosely in the world of Steins; Gate (if only because it has the same weird approach to naming), Chaos; Child is the direct sequel of Chaos; Head.
