‘Moto Racer 4′ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

If I’m honest I’d forgotten all about the Moto Racer franchise and with good reason, it’s been over 15 years since the third game was released (although there was apparently a Nintendo DS version of the game from the same developers as this). Since then motor racing games have come a long way – be […]

by Paul Metcalf

Telltale’s Batman has come to an end with City of Light, and in many ways, has delivered what we expect from the company. With plenty of uses of the new features brought to the Batman game, this episode does feel to be a step forward, but has Batman: The Telltale Series Episode 5 – City […]

‘The Little Acre’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

While adventure games seem to be dominated by Telltale’s high action style, sometimes it is nice to look back to the good old point and click adventures. This is where The Little Acre comes in, offering exactly that but with some little extra twists to the game play… The first thing you notice about The […]

Playstation 4 fans have found new joy with Call of Duty Pro Gaming

by James Smith

Esports are growing fast. Too fast probably. PC is heading the ranks with titles like Dota2, League of Legends, Starcraft and so on and so forth. FPS games were classically attributed to mouse and keyboard gameplay as well until recently. The team behind Call of Duty chose a different path for their brainchild and pioneered […]

‘Just Dance 2017′ (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

Wow. It has been a VERY long time since we reviewed a dance game here on Nerdly. So long ago that it was actually during our pre-Nerdly days as Blogomatic3000 that we last took at look at this small gaming sub-genre ( a genre that wasn’t that small back then). In fact the last games […]

‘Super Dungeon Bros’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

Straight from the outset the game shines with character, with the ‘Bros’ being challenged to take on the dungeon and you are even asked to ‘Press X to Rock’. After this though, the character is somewhat diminished as the procedural maps of the dungeon crawler load in and you prepare to battle. The fun soundtrack […]

‘Batman: The Telltale Series – Episode 4′ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

All it took was a glimpse of a certain character to get me excited for this episode. I didn’t worry that Bruce Wayne was going to be in danger in Telltale’s Batman Episode 4: Guardian of Gotham, or that Gotham could lose the protection of Batman. I finally got to see Telltale’s version of the […]

When a story reaches its mid-point there is a danger that the excitement will lull a little, until of course it again picks up pace. Telltale’s Batman Episode 3: New World Order is the third episode of Telltale’s take on Batman, with Bruce Wayne’s life descending into chaos, but strangely lacking in some of the […]

‘Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

When choosing games to play, the JRPG can be an odd one. They have a certain style to them that is easy to love, yet are unashamedly eccentric in nature. That being said, I find I don’t have the time to invest in them. When I had the chance to dive back into the genre […]

‘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 […]

‘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. […]

‘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 […]
