  With its season finale dropping last week, and the physical retail release arriving yesterday, Telltale’s Game of Thrones has come to a close. This series has been an interesting experiment for Telltale Games as it is set during the events of an ongoing property, HBO’s Game of Thrones television series, rather than prior to the original source material ala The Wolf Among Us; fol...[Read More]

  To quote the great Han Solo, “never tell me the odds”, seriously, don’t. If you’ve been playing Star Wars Battlefront you’ll probably have noticed that the game is one of the most skewed shooters to have come out in recent years, but this by far isn’t the only problem with the game. Don’t get me wrong, Battlefront has its good moments, even its grea...[Read More]

Reviewed on: PC Fallout 4 is a beast of a game. I have spent a better part of the past eight days wandering the post-apocalyptic wasteland of Boston and have barely scratched the surface of everything this game has to offer. As many have come to expect from a Bethesda Game Studios title, Fallout 4 features not only an open world story-based game, but one littered with over arching side stories, ra...[Read More]

  Pulse is conceptually heavy game where you play as a blind girl named Eva as she explores a fantasy world through sound. Developed by Pixel Pi following a successful Kickstarter campaign, Pulse took the devs several years to make, and as much as I hate to criticise games, it could have used several more. Nothing is wrong with the game’s premise, playing as a blind person and interacti...[Read More]

  Sometimes we get sent a game to review which might not be our cup of tea. That’s okay though, in most instances we can deal with it and play for a few days and come to an objective opinion. When Just Dance 2016 found its way into our hands and then eventually onto my desk I thought not only is this not my cup of tea, it’s so foreign to me it barely qualifies as tea at all. IR...[Read More]

– Nick Palmisano “We monitor many frequencies. We listen always. Came a voice, out of the babel of tongues, speaking to us. It played us a mighty dub.” – William Gibson, Neuromancer. Rise of the machines So mighty is the ‘dub’ of Call of Duty: Black Ops III that I barely have time to notice just how mindless a game about actual minds can be. The latest offering from publisher Activision and ...[Read More]

As with all our reviews we strive to keep this article as spoiler free as possible, but there will be some information those who are ultra sensitive to spoilers may find disturbing. Cold and huddled behind a box Lara picks up a glass bottle. Hurling it overhead to distract the two mercenaries searching for her she peers out from behind cover. One has gone over to investigate the noise while the ot...[Read More]

Reviewed on: Playstation 4 They’ve done it, they’ve finally done it. We, the people of the world, now have a cockney street gang simulator. If you’ve ever wanted to feel the rush of waving over your mates to come fight some guys, shout all the British slang you can think of and then burn their possessions, then my word is Assassin’s Creed Syndicate the game for you. Yes, th...[Read More]

– Stefan Bradley Brigador is an Early Access PC game on Steam. It’s an isometric real-time tactics game. You pick a vehicle and its assorted weaponry and are placed in a sci-fi district at a random starting location. In the world of Brigador, everyone’s against you, except for maybe the civilians, who you can crush at will, you jerks. Brigador favours a pick-up-and-play approach with short p...[Read More]

As always we’re slapping a big old SPOILER warning on this review, whilst we leave out major plot points, those with a particularly high level of spoiler sensitivity may find some of the following material distressing. Taking you to the edge of the galaxy, Halo 5 raises questions of loyalty when Earth’s greatest heroes fall from grace. It’s been three years since the Master Chief...[Read More]

-Aaron Birch Let me get this straight right now. As a child of the 80s, there’s only one true Transformers, and that’s Generation One. No Beast Wars, Energon, Armada, and certainly not the total bag of sweaty balls Michael Bay has created. Oh no. There’s only one Optimus Prime, and Megatron is the real Decepticon leader (and that’s the guise that turns into a bloody great h...[Read More]

The Walking Dead has blown up in the past few years. From being a humble comic series about the apocalyptic adventures of Rick Grimes, the title has become a full blown franchise with two TV series and a bunch of games to boot. Perhaps one of the strangest tie-ins to the show is The Escapists: The Walking Dead. Apart from having too many uses of “the” in the name, the game is a mix of ...[Read More]
