‘Metrocide’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Some games are created to punish the gamer, they often require patience and just a little luck but can still be the most annoying experiences put into game form. These games, such as Dark Souls, are sometimes lauded as some of the best games ever made, but to gamers who don’t have the patience to […]

‘Juju’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Platform games can be simple and are an easy way to ease children into the world of gaming.  Giving the character the ability to jump and dispose of their opponents by landing on their heads is a simple gaming dynamic that all gamers seem to easily pick up, is seems everybody has played Mario in […]

‘Far Cry 4′ Review (Xbox 360)

by Phil Wheat

It’s safe to say my history with the Far Cry franchise is a little… spotty. As a PC gamer back in the early 2000′s I loved the original Far Cry game. It came at a time when I was heavily into first-person shooters and, for me, the PC was and still is, the best way […]

‘Basketball Pro Management 2015′ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

I don’t often play management games, if anything I prefer to play games I can jump in and out of fast (often rage quitting when I die too often).  Management games need time and patience and a certain attention to detail, which I find I don’t often have.  When I do find the time though […]

‘Space Hulk: Ascension Edition’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

I’ve never really managed to play Space Hulk games, but I do know of them. I remember seeing the Games Workshop board games and liking the art work, even considered playing some of the games but I never got round to it. On the PC and consoles though, there are easier options to take a […]

‘Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

I’m a big Borderlands fan, I’ve played the first two games way too much and I love them.  Tales of the Borderlands is just around the corner and I’ve finally made the leap and played Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.  With 2K Australia taking over development of the game though, I was worried that there would be […]

‘Never Alone [Kisima Innitchuna]‘ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Platform games have been around for almost as long as we’ve played computer games.  To try and keep them interesting through the years they have been adapted to be more puzzle based, been based around memorable characters and tested gamers to their limits.  Some though look to the narrative quality of the game to add […]

‘This War of Mine’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

War is something we see on television and in films, some of us even play it in games like Call of Duty, but we do so for entertainment.  We understand that there are wars out there and people get killed, but most of us are lucky and don’t have to face that.  This War of Mine […]

‘Randal’s Monday’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

If there is one thing that geeks like it’s a reference to their favourite game, television show or film.  Randal’s Monday is a new Point & Click adventure game that is full of them, everywhere you look you will see an Easter egg trying to get your attention.  Taking an old fashioned style to the […]

‘Lords of the Fallen’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Some will call Lords of the Fallen a Dark Souls rip-off and others will argue against that comparison. The truth is it fits somewhere in between. Lords of the Fallen borrows a lot from Dark Souls but tries to offer something different, giving a more linear experience and in some ways giving more fun for those […]

‘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 Guest

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 […]
