Best of 2023: ‘Dead Space’ Review (PC)

by Chris Thomas

Despite being middle-aged and having a deep love of horror. I am too much of a coward to play horror games. I love the idea of them, but games give you agency, and that dear reader is too much pressure for me. Running in panic as the monsters close in, is too much for me […]

‘Cyber Citizen Shockman 2: A New Menace’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

One of the things that has marked out this current generation of consoles is the re-releases of old(er) games on new formats – something that has given new life to old franchises and resurrected long-dead games AND games that never saw the light of day either worldwide or merely just Western audiences. This is where […]

‘Post Void’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Alain Elliott

The Nintendo Switch might just be my favourite console ever. I’ve always been a Nintendo guy, so it’s no surprise I’m talking like this about one of those console. But part of the reason I love it so much is because of its vast library of games that has led me to trying games and […]

‘Lone Ruin’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

Super Rare Games have been on my radar for a while now. They are continuously releasing great, original indie games that are initially only available digitally, and making them physical releases, often with cool extras thrown in to. The occasional digital release is also included and this is where Lone Ruin comes in. What grabbed […]

When Evil Dead: The Game was first revealed, the marketing was perfect. Put Bruce Campbell in the trailers, show characters from not only the movies but the TV show and you have fan’s attention from the start.

‘Quest For Infamy’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Alain Elliott

Broken Sword, Monkey Island, Grim Fandango, Syberia, Clock Tower. All classic games. All classic point and click adventure video games. But I haven’t played any of them and I’ve been playing video games for a very long time. I’m trying to think as I write this but it’s been at least thirty years. And in […]

‘Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires’ Review (Xbox Series S)

by Phil Wheat

Yes, the musou classic is back with another entry in the long-running series that has also had numerous spin-offs and titles that use the same “warriors” format for their own gameplay needs (Hyrule Warriors for example). And in terms of the musou action nothing much has changed, however… Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires lets gamers live […]

‘Moto Roader MC’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Alain Elliott

I have always been fond of top-down racing video games and I’m not entirely sure why because I haven’t actually played a whole lot of them. I think my first memory of this type of racer probably came from seeing Super Off Road in gaming magazines in the nineties. There was something about that style […]

Now in it’s 2022 iteration, the RavensCourt/Voxler Let’s Sing franchise is now seemingly the only karaoke game left in a market that used to be completely saturated… I still struggle to understand why these types of games fell out of favour, especially in the TikTok era!

There are a lot of metrics by which to measure the quality of video games – graphics, sound, controls, game play… But there’s one, at least for me, that trumps all those. Namely how long I’ll plonk myself in front of the TV and play a game in one sitting… And after downloading Xuan Yuan […]
