‘Stories: The Path of Destinies’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

While so many people were obsessed with not dying in Dark Souls 3, another release appeared in the PlayStation Store that promised furry creatures and plenty of sword fighting. Stories: The Path of Destinies is something a little different though, and at £8.99 a must buy game. At the start of the game we are […]

First Impressions: ‘Doom’ Closed Beta (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

I’m probably showing my age when I remember the hype around the original Doom. While Wolfenstein 3D was the first-person shooter that made an impression, it was Doom that really made the genre explode – by not only throwing the blood around in a glorious explosion of brutality but brought multiplayer gaming into the mix […]

‘The Division’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

The Division is turning into an interesting beast, especially for solo players like me. There are so many articles that say it is not designed for single-players alone and that at level 30 it will hit you hard, but at level 26 I’m holding up hope that I can survive it. Why am I sticking […]

‘Superhot’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

When it comes to first person shooting games innovation isn’t really something you expect. The idea is you point a gun at people and you shoot, what else can you do? Superhot is the answer that you may not expect. Prepare to show Keanu Reeves how to really manipulate The Matrix… There is a campaign […]

‘LEGO Marvel’s Avengers’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

When it comes to LEGO games they are pretty reliable. They have that humour that we can expect, they understand the audience they are catering for and they know how to treat the licenses they are entrusted with well… Which is exactly what they have done with LEGO Marvel’s Avengers. While we’ve seen Marvel characters […]

‘Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo’ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

I have a storied history with racing games. Back in the days of the NES and Commodore 64 I loved nothing more than playing Outrun and Rad Racer – you know the types of racing games I mean, the arcade-style racers where you could put pedal to the metal and drift round tracks at speed. […]

‘Mordheim: City of the Damned’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Mordheim: City of the Damned is the type of game I tend to not be good at. While playing it tends to punish me for being too impulsive, and I’ve not got the patience to handle the resources that I need to control. When it plays so well though, it’s also a game that keeps […]

‘Clandestine’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Some games, while they offer a single player experience thrive off being social. However Clandestine is well thought out enough to let one player succeed, but to truly find your groove you need another person to work with you. In the game, the year is 1996, five years after the Soviet Union has fallen. With […]

‘Pulse’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Most games treat the main character almost like a super hero, giving them the ability to withstand more than the average human could, and powers to give them an added edge. This is what allows us to enjoy the game, the escape from reality. In search for a new experience though some games have started […]

‘Game of Thrones: Episode 6 – The Ice Dragon’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

After the impressive way that Telltale Games managed to wrap up Tales From the Borderlands I wondered if Games of Thrones would find similar success. With Games of Thrones: Episode 6 – The Ice Dragon there were a lot of story strands to wrap up, and the problem may be that not all of them […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Syndicate’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

With the release of Assassin’s Creed Unity last year Ubisoft provided fans with a broken game and they weren’t happy… With this year’s Assassin’s Creed Syndicate the company had a big job on their hands, they had to win back the hearts and minds of their biggest critics. The gamers themselves. Setting the game in […]

‘BlazBlue Chronophantasma Extend’ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

As someone approaching 40 (dear god, really?) I’ve played my fair share of video games. Probably more than my fair share. From the days of the ZX81, through Commodore 64 and into the console era with the NES, SNES, Megadrive, Saturn, PS1, PS2 etc., And for the longest time my favourite genre was the platformer […]

‘Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

With Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End coming in 2016, what is the best way to get players re-invested into the world of Drake? Yep, that’s right by remastering the games. Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection brings together the first three games in 1080p and 60fps, but is it worth spending the money on? With Uncharted: […]

‘Now That’s What I Call Sing’ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

Once upon a time I was a hardcore fan of the rhythm/singing game genre. Singstar, Guitar Hero, Rockband… You name it I’ve played it. However my experiences, and more importantly my love, of music games in recent years have waned. In fact I haven’t touched any of “karaoke” style video games since We Sing Pop […]

‘Transformers Devastation’ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

In the history of video games there have been a LOT of Transformers games; from the 1986 Japan-only NES game Mystery of Convoy (later available in some countries via Nintendo’s Virtual Console) to the more recent Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark. And when it comes to video games Transformers titles are definitely a mixed […]

‘Until Dawn’ – A Horror Fans (Re)View

by Phil Wheat

I’ve been gaming for years, for longer than I have been a horror fan in fact. From the ZX81 through the Acorn Electron, Commodore 64, NES, SNES, Megadrive and beyond, and even back in the early days there were attempts to meld video games and movies. Be it cinematic style games like It Came From […]
