‘Styx: Master of Shadows’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

I’m not a fan of stealth in games, my style is more to find the shortest route and blast my way through or stay at a distance and use sniping skills to take out my enemies. This is probably why it seems weird for me to review Styx: Master of Shadows, one of the most […]

‘The Vanishing of Ethan Carter’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Adventure games tend to have a set narrative, they like to guide you by the hand and lead you through the scenes to make sure you are doing things right and not deviating from the set path.  This has worked ever since the origins of computer games, right back to text-based adventures so why change […]

Review: The Walking Dead – Season 2 Episode 5 (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

Season two of The Walking Dead is over and finally the story comes to a close providing us with an understanding of exactly what we were heading towards.  With a season full of hard choices and the feeling that every move made was a mistake the real message in No Going Back is that this is about […]

‘The Wolf Among Us Chapter 5: Cry Wolf’ Review (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

The Wolf Among Us has simmered, waiting to boil over through the first four episodes…like the wolf trying to break out of Bigby’s skin.  We’ve seen some action from him as he fights for the truth behind the Fable deaths, but only really seen the Wolf come out once and even then it didn’t have full […]

‘The Escapists’ – Hands On Preview (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Prison is hell, if you are not being beaten up by the other inmates you are being bullied by the guards to follow their orders. What do you do to survive? You learn to fit in, learn the schedules of the guards, form a team and make your escape! That’s not what you really do […]

‘The Wolf Among Us Chapter 4: In Sheeps Clothing’ Review (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

After the battle of A Crooked Mile, Bigby is in bad shape, this leads to a very painful scene where he needs some major fixing, something the gamer takes part in, in a scene that will make you cringe.   We now know who the enemy is and have an idea of what we have to […]

Review: The Walking Dead – Season 2 Episode 3 (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

The Walking Dead Season 2 – Episode 3: In Harm’s Way has finally changed the way I make decisions with Clementine.  I can’t really point out what caused this because that would be obvious spoilers but In Harm’s Way is an episode that is deceptively slow and much more discussion intensive than earlier episodes.  The fact […]

‘SteelSeries 9H Gaming Headset’ Review

by Phil Wheat

Product: SteelSeries 9H Gaming Headset Manufacturer: SteelSeries Input: 3.5mm jack(s) RRP: £135 I’ve reviewed and tested plenty of different makes and models of headphones/earphones over the years and for many years my go-to’s were the iLuv earphones that I’ve had almost five years. That was until I tried out the Sol Republic headphones back in March of […]

It’s time for a good ‘Superman’ game…

by Ginger_Phoenix

This past March, one of our guest writer’s made a strong and, more importantly, factual statement about the superhero side of Clark Kent: “When you think of comic books, you think of Superman.” No one can argue with that, right? Of course not. So why is it, then, that the man in blue cannot get […]

‘Trials Fusion’ Review (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

I don’t know what it is about the Trials games that keep me coming back, but with the release of Trials Fusion I had to get it as soon as it was released.  I do feel I was kind of bucking the trend buying the Xbox 360 version of the game though, but looking at […]

‘Goat Simulator’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

What can you say about a game that was released on April 1st? Simple really, it was designed to be a joke.  Goat Simulator has something of a cult following now, it was made for fun and released as is including bugs and gamers are pretty much told to just go for it. The game […]

‘Spelunky’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Did you ever play a game called Rick Dangerous? The fact I’m asking that probably ages me slightly.  It was a platform games based on Indiana Jones and the controls were horrible.  What Rick Dangerous had though was charm that kept on calling you back, and this is why Spelunky, a very similar character keeps on calling me […]

‘The Wolf Among Us Chapter 3: The Crooked Mile’ Review (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

Sometimes I do wonder why I put up with Telltale Games and their adventures.  If it’s not The Walking Dead, now we have The Wolf Among Us to push us towards those hard decisions we don’t want to make, and when we do get rushed into them, realise we just did the wrong thing.  With […]

‘South Park: The Stick of Truth’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

South Park: The Stick of Truth was met with excitement by fans when it was first revealed, but nobody probably expected the fight the game itself would have to get release.  First with the death of THQ then with delays added onto it, the signs weren’t that good.  With the delays being used to improve the […]

‘Deadlings’ Review (iOS)

by Paul Metcalf

As a fan of the game Lemmings in its original form I remember the obsession of getting as many of the weird little creatures through the level as possible, though it was always fun to see how they could be killed.  The aim though was to make it through the levels by utilising the skills […]

‘Senran Kagura Burst’ Review (3DS)

by Phil Wheat

If there’s ever been a point of controversy in video games it’s those “weird” Japanese games that never get ported across to Europe and the US – you know the ones: those that feature gratuitous, often lingering shots of girls battling it out, be it in a beat ‘em up or JRPG. Back in the […]

Review: The Walking Dead – Season 2 Episode 2 (Xbox 360)

Oh The Walking Dead you know just where to stick that dagger don’t you? When I finished the first episode of The Walking Dead Season Two I should have known what was coming, it was just a way of easing you into the trap before it ripped your heart right out of your chest.  Looking […]

It’s been some time since last October when we played the first chapter of The Wolf Among Us, it had us hooked and left us waiting for the next chapter.  Since then Telltale Games released the first chapter of The Walking Dead: Season Two and made announcements of the Borderlands games and Game of Thrones.
