‘Portal Knights’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

When games are inspired by others, they often fight to get out of their shadow. Portal Knights is a game that has two shadows to try to escape from, both Minecraft and Dark Souls. The question is, should it have to? Portal Knights is a new cooperative action RPG game where you pick to be […]

‘Seasons After Fall’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

To keep platform games fresh, many focus more on the puzzle element rather than killing the character with endless monsters looking for blood. Seasons After Fall is one of those games that uses the puzzle element more, and provides a nice relaxing walk through the seasons. The best way to go into the game is […]

‘Renowned Explorers’ & ‘The Emperor’s Challenge DLC’ Review (PC)

by Matthew Smail

Full disclosure: I’ve enjoyed my time with Renowned Explorers much more than I thought that I would. This charming, beautiful and deceptively detailed adventure game is everything that makes independently developed games such a rich and diverse source of engaging content. I say that because being a little bit frank, there’s a lot of goodness […]

‘Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

Let’s be honest. When Nintendo announced the release of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, it was met with a less than stellar response. After all, technially this “new” Nintendo Switch game is anything but new… Instead the Switch iteration is a port of the existing Wii U game, with a few new bells and whistles and […]

‘Outlast 2′ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

Playing the first Outlast game, it was a good blend of exploration, running for your life, and escaping monsters. When the sequel was announced, there was a high expectation of what would come. Now we’ve had chance to play Outlast 2, does it manage the same scares or is it just another forgettable horror sequel? […]

‘Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

If there is one genre of game that has pulled me in now I review games, it has to be the JRPG. While they tend to consume a lot of time, they tend to be full of lore, and drag you into a zany story. While sometimes they may not deliver, when they do they […]

‘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 […]

‘Torment: Tides of Numenera’ Review (PS4)

I’m by no means a role-playing games expert, but I like to delve into the genre sometimes and get lost in the worlds. Torment: Tides of Numenera has now been released on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 and offers an interesting and deep experience for RPG fans, but has the release been worth the […]

Test your skills to the max with this gnarly and challenging arcade style skate game set in a retro 1980s neighbourhood filled with bogus dangers… Players can skate, hitch and grind their way through hazardous streets; dodging […]

‘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 […]
