– Nick Palmisano You stand in the dimly lit corridor, just one of dozens like it, on a derelict spacecraft, equally dim, drifting ever closer to the toxic, mesmerizing methane clouds of gas giant Neptune, orbit decaying minute by minute. There are scratches all over the bulkhead door leading to ‘Crew Commons’. You wonder if the blood trail is leading away, or trailing from. It doesn’t matter...[Read More]

– Karly Taylor A bit of a cliche title, I know, but bear with me here. Layers of Fear is a brand spanking new horror game on Steam, inspired by famous paintings, architecture and decor of centuries been and gone. It’s described as being a “psychadelic horror” that puts you in the shoes of an artist who, in his quest to finish his life’s greatest masterpiece, goes comp...[Read More]

–  Charlie Braithwaite Creativity is a beautiful thing in games, having the freedom to do what you want makes you feel powerful and nurtures the imagination. That being said, when you give me the option to use the Dualshock 4 touchpad to scribble designs, things are going to get messy. I’m not a good drawer, never have been, never will be. So the sheer amount of crudely drawn appendage...[Read More]

–  Charlie Braithwaite When a review copy of Forza Motorsport 6, developed by Microsoft’s Turn 10 Studios, landed in our inbox there was a genuine moment of panic. Does anyone at LoadScreen play racing games? Well, I do, as of now. I own a car and sometimes play games (e.g. always) so thought I am as qualified as the next person. I wasn’t expecting to adore the game, but I would ...[Read More]

–  Aaron Birch No doubt you’ve seen Mad Max: Fury Road and thought “That car combat was amazing. If only I could do that!” Well, although it may be illegal to customise your car with giant spikes and jump around with explosive spears while a guitarist plays hard rock hanging off the front of your car, at least the last time I checked, the world of videogames is here to indulge you. Bro...[Read More]

–  Nick Palmisano Every once in a while something comes along that changes the very foundations of your soul. An experience so inane and simultaneously engrossing that you are at once abhorred and captivated. That something is GOTY contender Shower With Your Dad Simulator 2015. This 8-bit wonder, developed by Marbenx, boldly toes the line between soap scum and psychological revolution. You s...[Read More]

–  Axdsilva The steam controller has returned after a little facelift, but the differences are more than just skin deep. Taking the feedback from the original controller the rearranged layout keeps what works and aligns what’s familiar. The unchanged: trackpads, palm buttons and shape. The shape is still natural and iconic to the controller as rather ergonomic (really comfortable) design. Th...[Read More]

–  Aaron Birch It certainly wouldn’t be a stretch to say that Konami isn’t exactly popular with gamers right now. Poor treatment of beloved franchises like Castlevania, killing off the superbly promising P.T./Silent Hills, and firing industry legend Hideo Kojima were just some of the lowlights the publisher has accrued of late. Add to this reports that staff are treated like pris...[Read More]

– Charlie Braithwaite Corpse of Discovery is a new sci-fi exploration game by Phospor Games. The review for this game may seem a bit bi-polar as I enjoyed parts of the game, but was very underwhelmed with others. In Corpse of Discovery you play as an astronaut working for the Corps of Discovery (see what they did there?), your ship has crash landed and you have no signal to contact home, fro...[Read More]

– Charlie Braithwaite I haven’t always seen eye to eye with MOBAs. I don’t get the fun in grinding for close to an hour to have it all erased just to start again. So when SMITE by Hi-Rez Studios, recently ported to Xbox One, found its way onto my desk to review, I was hesitant. After deciding that it looked different enough to warrant me playing, I dove into it expecting the wors...[Read More]

– Tom Heath Gryphon Knight Epic, released earlier this month on Steam by developer Cyber Rhino Studios, is very much rooted in the classic days of 2D side-scrollers. It’s relatively simple to pick up, has stunning pixel art visuals and some nice, tongue-in-cheek writing. A personal highlight was the main protagonist shouting “I’ll teach you for crushing other peoples’...[Read More]

– Tom Heath The adjective “cinematic” has become a dirty word when it comes to describing a video game. After all, games aren’t movies so why should a game be trying to be like a movie? Well, regardless of your personal feelings of the phrase, I am going to use it anyway because Supermassive Games’ Until Dawn is very much trying to be like a movie; a teen/slasher horr...[Read More]
