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]

Reviewed on: PC. Copy supplied by publisher. Let me be blunt: the entire time I was playing Breached, I wished I was playing a better game with the same premise. Which is a shame, because on paper Drama Drifters’ debut game sounds like if The Martian was a walking simulator, but those impressions quickly faded once I passed the tutorial. The story of a person isolated on a desolate planet co...[Read More]

Well, what a steaming load that was! Probably not the words Capcom wanted to see at the start of any review, but there’s just no nice way to say it I’m afraid. Umbrella Corps has to be one of the worst big name releases I’ve played this year, if not the worst. Umbrella Corps is one of those games where you simply can’t figure out why on Earth it exists, and by the looks of ...[Read More]

Reviewed on: PS4. Copy supplied by publisher. The Witcher 3 is a rare example of a complete game that really didn’t need any DLC. The vanilla game was massive, with more content than pretty much any other titles outside of the likes of Elder Scrolls and Fallout. Most players still haven’t finished everything there is to do in the world, and maybe never will. However, that didn’t ...[Read More]

Reviewed on on: PC Wick is an indie game developed by Hellbent Games that came out late last year on Steam that flew completely under my radar and only recently came to my attention while perusing the “horror” tag for the umpteenth time looking at all the new shiny games I wouldn’t have time to play. Liking the premise of a ghost story brought to life with a local legend about missing children hau...[Read More]

Reviewed on: PC. Copy supplied by publisher. Having been one of the most agonisingly anticipated games in recent memory, Overwatch is finally here, and it lives up to the hype for the most part. In fact I’d go as far to say it’s been my favourite game this year, I’m hooked, but that’s not to say it doesn’t have faults. Overwatch pits teams of six against each other in...[Read More]

The latest offering in a series of so far decent Fallout 4 DLC is one of the finest additions to a game since Red Dead Redemption‘s Undead Nightmare. Far Harbor introduces a whole new area to the Commonwealth brimming with mystery, horror and in true Fallout fashion, fucking insane moral decisions. Kicking off with a visit to Nick Valentine in Diamond City, the player hears about a case invo...[Read More]

Reviewed on: PC. I’d heard good things about Neverending Nightmares, even picked it up during a sale on Steam but never actually got around to giving it a go. With the release of a Playstation 4 and Vita version, however, I decided it was enough of an incentive to give it a shot. I was itching to write and needed a new horror game in my life so I figured, why not? Take the plunge, nothing ventured...[Read More]

Reviewed on: PS4. Gear supplied by manufacturer. For those that haven’t augmented their controllers before, this article is about to open up a whole new world for you. It was only a few months ago that a friend bought me some Kontrolfreek grips for my PS4 controller, prior to that customising was something I’d never really thought about, but now it has become a bit of a hobby. Finding ...[Read More]

Reviewed on: PS4. Copy supplied by publisher. DOOM, the granddaddy of the FPS genre is back once again, and this time under the watchful eye of Bethesda. For the more seasoned gamer, DOOM is not just synonymous with the first person shooter, but also responsible for the genre’s meteoric rise to dominance. Sure, Wolfenstein 3D may have come first (and a couple of more obscure games before tha...[Read More]

Last week I described Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End as “one hell of a gaming experience”, praising its fantastic story, solid gameplay and “unreasonably good” graphics. That review was based solely upon the single player portion of the game because that was all I had access to prior to launch, and in the interest of being timely I opted to publish it first and then have ...[Read More]

Reviewed on: PC. Copy supplied by publisher. “You see, in this world there’s two kinds of people, my friend: Those with loaded guns and those who duel. You duel.” Western Press, published by Surprise Attack and developed by Bandit-1, is a pixel art western game that somehow manages to stand out in a genre that is hardly void of titles. Pitting players in duels against AI, local c...[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]
