Play Blackpool Review: ‘From Bedrooms to Billions’

by Phil Wheat

The Play “Expo” events in Blackpool and Manchester are, in some ways, an attempt to recapture and relive the community spirit of video gaming in an age where keyboard warriors and faceless online gaming rule the roost. It’s also a celebration of the history of gaming, from the early years of arcade games like Space […]

‘Bloodsports.TV’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

I’ll admit that I’m not the most sociable of gamer, I’d rather play solo and concentrate on my own game, building up progress and enjoying things at my own pace.  There are games that push for co-operative play and create addictive chaos to push unsociable people like me into playing with friends.  Bloodsports.TV is one […]

‘Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today’ (P)review

by Paul Metcalf

While it can be easy to be cynical about Kickstarter and what it means for the games industry, there is one thing for sure and that is when it has had success it has made an impact on the games being released.  Independent games, especially ones that look to the fans for investment have a […]

‘Dying Light’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Ever since gaming made the move to “Next Gen” Dying Light has been one of the games that people have been waiting for, even with the delays that have held it back.  A mixture of parkour and zombie fighting action, and coming from the makers of the original Dead Island it had a lot of […]

‘Alien: Isolation’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

When Alien: Isolation was announced most people thought about previous attempts at Alien games and cynicism set in, especially after Alien: Colonial Marines.  Then hands-on previews were down and the unthinkable happened, the game was getting positive feedback and people were actually looking forward to the release.  Now that I’ve managed to complete the game I can […]

‘Last Inua’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Not long ago I reviewed Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna) so it only seemed right that when Last Inua was available on the PC I should move onto that game and give it a try.  Described as an “immersive and emotional” platform game like Never Alone it featured platform style gameplay and a two player structure […]

‘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 […]

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 […]
