-Aaron Birch Beginning life as a large piece of DLC for the vanilla Dying Light, The Following soon grew out of its initial scope, and developer Techland quickly re-purposed the project as a full-fledged expansion. This is no paltry bit of wasteful DLC you’ll complete in under an hour (Arkham Knight, I’m looking at you!), this is a full campaign that has plenty to offer. The fact that ...[Read More]

Reviewed on: PC There will be few moments in your life when you’ll be required to make decisions as huge, and under the same amounts of pressure, as ones you’ll make when playing XCOM 2. Will you take the 50/50 shot to kill an enemy pinning down a team mate, hold your ground and only fire defensively or relocate to a better position but also expose your flank? Could another team mate b...[Read More]

Reviewed on: PC Within the first 10 minutes, I knew Firewatch had me in its grasp. Much like the opening to Pixar’s Up, Firewatch introduces a cute, if implausible, story of new love that mere minutes of exposition later broke my heart. The game hadn’t really even begun yet and already I knew it was going to be something special. While I can’t say I felt exactly the same way by t...[Read More]

  Don’t let its appearance pull the wool over your eyes, Unravel is perhaps one of the realest experiences to hit the gaming market in a long time. Developed by Swedish developers Coldwood Interactive and published by EA, this narrative driven platformer/puzzle game hybrid is a refreshing and emotionally packed experience that will equally captivate you and make you want to scream uncon...[Read More]

Reviewed on: Playstation 4   *Approaches a puzzle* All right, a new puzzle. What have you got for me… *Tests a few possible solutions* OK, no good. What am I missing… *Applies the logic taught by the tutorials for tens of minutes, to no avail* Goddamn it, this is impossible! IT MAKES NO SENSE! STUFF THIS, THIS IS STUPID, PUZZLES ARE STUPID, STUPID STUPID STU- hang on… *Tries...[Read More]

  The Bug Butcher is one of those indie games that you might not pay attention to. On the surface it sounds like so many other games, you play as a masked character tasked with clearing out waves of aliens with a range of laser based weapons. Doesn’t exactly sound groundbreaking, does it? However once you start playing The Bug Butcher, you realise that the devs at Awfully Nice Studios h...[Read More]

– Stefan Bradley Reviewed on: Wii U Cue the comparisons to Nintendo’s F-Zero franchise, as well as Sony’s WipEout. Like those two series, Fast Racing Neo is all about futuristic vehicles racing at extreme speeds to a soundtrack fusing rock and electronic music. F-Zero hasn’t seen a new game since F-Zero Climax on the GBA, but most of us fondly remember F-Zero GX as the peak...[Read More]

  We usually don’t cover mobile games, and for good reason, in general they are terrible. When apps first became a thing with the release of smart phones there was a brief golden age of free content that wasn’t riddled with ads, but now mobile releases have been tarnished with ungodly amounts of microtransactions and clones of Flappy Bird. Don’t get me wrong, there have been...[Read More]

Welcome to “January Back Catalogue”, where we’re taking advantage of this quiet release month by catching up on all the games we’ve been meaning to play. Reviewed on: PC Ori and the Blind Forest featured in so many people’s game of the year lists that I just had to try it out. Any side-scrolling indie game that garners that much attention must surely be worth my time. And it certainly was, p...[Read More]

  You may have read Hardware: Rivals is a lot like Rocket League, and I understand why. Both were free upon release for PSN members and feature cars, but that’s about where the similarities end, confusing the two past that is like mistaking a Rob Schneider film for something fit for human consumption. Rocket League was one of my favourite games of the year in 2015, and I can say safely ...[Read More]

Welcome to “January Back Catalogue”, where we’re taking advantage of this quiet release month by catching up on all the games we’ve been meaning to play.   Many of you may not know about Hard West, a turn-based strategy title from Creative Forge games, that released on Steam way back on November 19. That day ring a bell? It should, it was the launch day of Star Wars Battlefront and anyt...[Read More]

  I’m not too sure where to start with this review, every fiber of my being wanted the latest addition to PlayStation’s exclusive Fat Princess series to be good, not that Fat Princess Adventures is terrible, but it just isn’t Fat Princess as we know it. Fat Princess Adventures has seen the beloved capture the flag style multiplayer game turned into a RPGish hack and slash ga...[Read More]
