  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]

– Aaron Birch Bringing a classic franchise back to life for both existing and new audiences is never going to be an easy challenge, especially one that’s as unique and revolutionary as Rainbow 6. First released on PC back in 1998, Rainbow Six has always been about tactical realism. A single bullet can kill, and one wrong move can lead to mission failure. The series has also thrust co-o...[Read More]

– Aaron Birch Just Cause 3 is the second main game from Avalanche this year, the first being Mad Max, and although both are open world sandboxes, there’s little in the way of similarity here. Mad Max was a vehicle-focused beat ’em up set in a grungy world that didn’t quite achieve all it wanted, and Just Cause 3 is the latest installment in possibly the most over the top, d...[Read More]

  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]
