Oh, wait… that title doesn’t work as well written down… I could have deleted it, but then you wouldn’t see the inner workings of how we write at LoadScreen, the key is to start with a pun in the headline and then dribble on your shirt until the rest of the review writes itself. ANYWAY! Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom far excee...[Read More]

I admit it; my friends and I have been waiting for a new UNO ever since the launch of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The 2006 version of UNO on Xbox 360 was one of the only games that we still used the console for (seriously, it’s an intense game). So I was of course, extremely happy when I saw that a new UNO was coming to the new consoles, and PC. But would it live up to the hype? This version o...[Read More]

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Deus Ex is one of the most beloved video game titles of all time, and for very good reason. It’s seen by many (myself included) as a game that radically changed the gaming landscape. The original release back in 2000 was a game so far ahead of its time it hurt. It outstripped just about every other game in terms of design and showing ju...[Read More]

Reviewed on: PS4. Gear supplied by manufacturer. So I’ve spoken before about how much I froth over controller augmentation. It’s my guilty pleasure, and it’s something that has begun to spiral out of control. I now own more PS4 thumbsticks than I thought ever possible. And yes, I do use them all on the regular, they’re my hand’s tiny plastic children. On my last ravin...[Read More]

Reviewed on: PS4. Copy supplied by publisher. In my 12 hours of game time I’ve found No Man’s Sky to be equal parts compelling and boring, some aspects of it are amazing, and others are a galactic snore fest. Arguably the sheer amount of hype after years of anticipation, mixed with the lack of any concrete info in the build up, let minds run wild as to what No Man’s Sky could be....[Read More]

Reviewed on: PS4. Copy supplied by publisher. Steam’s early access model has been polarising, to say the least. The idea of paying for an unfinished game is something many just can’t understand, or agree with, whilst other relish the opportunity to play upcoming titles early, perhaps even to help shape them into the eventual final release. On paper, it’s actually a pretty decent ...[Read More]

The DC Cinematic Universe might be flapping about like a fish out of water right now, but it’s good to know that the Dark Knight himself can still spin a good yarn. In fact, it’s not just the Caped Crusader giving us a compelling narrative, but also his time out of the suit as Bruce Wayne dealing with problems of politics and his family legacy. Honestly, I don’t know what else we...[Read More]

Reviewed on: Playstation 4 Neverwinter, based on the Dungeons & Dragons license and set in the popular Forgotten Realms universe, was developed by Cryptic Studios and originally released on the PC back in late 2013. It incorporates the 4th edition’s rule set, and promised players rich adventures, complete with numerous iconic characters and locations for those familiar with the novels, the tab...[Read More]

Reviewed on: PC. Copy supplied by publisher. It’s no surprise so many devs are no desperately trying to reproduce the winning formula of Dark Souls – it’s fantastic. From Software’s series has become a legitimate classic in every sense of the word, and the industry wants to cash in on this success. We’ve seen good copies of the formula, such as the excellent Salt and Sanctu...[Read More]

The Magic Circle: Gold Edition is a console port of the original which released on PC in July last year. You’d be forgiven if you haven’t heard of it as it had no marketing and only sold 16,000 copies as of March 2016. It’s easily the most ‘meta’ game I’ve ever played, designed as a satire of game development and the gaming industry as a whole. The premise of The Magic Circle is that you’re within...[Read More]

Aside from a few screenshots, I managed to play Inside completely unspoiled, no trailers or previews. If you’ve managed the same so far, the one spoiler you need to know is if you liked Limbo you should go and play Inside right now. Developed by Playdead, the studio that created Limbo, Inside is a spiritual successor to the acclaimed platformer, sharing many elements in terms of gameplay, environm...[Read More]

Reviewed on: PC. Copy supplied by publisher. Let’s not beat around the proverbial bush here, The Technomancer doesn’t live up to its potential even slightly. Yeah, that’s probably a harsh way to start a review, but let’s spell out why this action RPG reaches for the stars only to fall short, roll an ankle and crack its head on the floor on the way down. Set on a post apocal...[Read More]

Batman Arkham Knight: A Short affair with the Batgirl DLC

– Charlie Braithwaite The best analogy for Batman: Arkham Knight’s first DLC offering is that of an Easter egg, no not a cheeky little DC universe surprise, but an actual chocolate egg. Looks good, tastes okay, but my god is it hollow. Naturally minor spoilers for all of the Arkham games/the new DLC lie ahead. Enter at your own peril. As we have discussed A Matter of Family had the pot...[Read More]

agar.io or: How I learned to stop worrying and love the blob

– Dominic Powell Having just finished last semesters exams, agar.io is like an old friend. An old friend that lures you into their house with promises like ‘you can do that essay in 12 hours, don’t even worry about it!’ Agar.io has got to be the best procrastination game I’ve ever played. To the untrained eye, agar.io looks like a bunch of different sized, different c...[Read More]

Rocket League: Destruction derby meets football

– Luke Chandler If you’re the sort of person who usually sits in front of a screen in a darkened room, chances are you’ve seen the name Rocket League pop up on various online publications and message boards. The game has generated a large amount of hype, fueled by a dedicated fan base. I am not really a fan of sports games, so when I first heard of Rocket League, It didn’t seem l...[Read More]

Batman: Arkham Knight review

– Tom Heath I’m Batman… This thought ran through my mind as I stood perched atop a fire escape railing, the cold Gotham rain pelting my billowing cape, watching a group of thugs exchanging banter. They had no idea I was there; they had no idea they were prey. I scanned the group. Two thugs held assault rifles, one was big and muscular, the last held a club. Using my distruptor ri...[Read More]
