‘Rise and Shine’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

If you are a fan of good old school platform games, you tend to have a love affair with any that happen to find their way to you. This is what happened to me when I was able to try out Rise and Shine. Like some relationships though, the punishment they cause can sometimes be […]

‘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 […]

‘Maize’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Corn fields are creepy, Stephen King taught us that. When you start playing a game though and see some of the corn seemingly taking a stroll through the rows, then it wouldn’t be long before you see death fast approaching. With Maize, which has released on PC though, death is the last thing you’ll be […]

‘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 […]

‘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 […]

by Paul Metcalf

Halloween is just around the corner and gamers are looking for a few scares. With this in mind, it would seem that Syndrome is a game that has appeared at just the right time. Trapped in a space ship that appears to be infested with monsters, does it have what it takes to be scary? […]

‘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. […]

‘Manual Samuel’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

We tend to take for granted many of the things our bodies do automatically for us. It knows when to blink, when to take a breath, it is designed to survive. Imagine how fun it would be to have to control these things manually? That is the idea behind Manual Samuel. Sam (Samuel) is a […]

If you are a fan of adventure games, you’ll no doubt know the history of point-and click-adventures. Now we have the Telltale Games variety that get all the attention, but what of the traditional old school games style?

‘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 […]

‘Clustertruck’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Games let us do things that we’d never dream of in real life. One of the fun things is parkour. The ability to jump from building to building or find an impossible jump and succeed with the landing is something we can do in gaming worlds without any real danger. This is what makes Clustertruck […]

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)

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 […]
