Geek culture loves a good crossover, and seeing two previously unrelated worlds collide, with well-known characters who would otherwise never meet often creates some excellent stories. Just look at the multitude of crossovers between DC and Marvel, and how popular these stories are. Video games are no strangers to this, with high profile crossovers like Nintendo’s Smash Bros series successfu...[Read More]

Played on Nintendo 3DS, copy supplied by publisher. Bye-Bye BoxBoy! is the third and final installment in the BoxBoy puzzle platforming series, which are downloadable titles on the Nintendo 3DS. Created by Kirby developers Hal Laboratory, the series centres on a BoxBoy named Qbby (pronounced “Cubey”) creating duplicates of his box body to traverse a series of puzzles to reach the end of 100+ stage...[Read More]

Reviewed on Xbox One, copy supplied by publisher.  Enter the Gungeon was a critical success when released on PC and PS4 in 2016, it even made my top three games of the year list. Well, good news for Xbox One players who may have missed out, the dodge rolling bullet fest is now on Xbox One, and it’s still just as good. I won’t go balls to the wall with detail here, as the initial review...[Read More]

Something that almost everybody will go through at some point in their life is the loss of someone close to them. This is something that PaperSeven’s Blackwood Crossing explores with two orphaned children, the young boy Finn and his teenage sister Scarlet, the latter of which the player inhabits as they find themselves on a mysterious and seemingly magical train. Blackwood Crossing markets itself ...[Read More]

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. As someone who was a huge fan of Bioware’s original Mass Effect trilogy, despite its ultimately unsatisfying conclusion, I had some high hopes going in to Mass Effect Andromeda. I was looking forward to diving back into a sci-fi universe packed with inter-species politics, engaging characters and some real chin-scratching ethical dilemm...[Read More]

Played on PS4, copy supplied by publisher.  Putting players in control of adorable little cubes, Death Squared is pretty much a hate crime against controllers. The challenging puzzle game will test patience beyond measure, which makes it all the more rewarding when you successfully navigate the creative levels. With single player and co-op options, Death Squared has story and exhibition modes at t...[Read More]

Reviewed on PS4, copy supplied by publisher.  It’s important to note before we begin here: I’ve played many previous Persona games (and the wider, Megami Tensei titles), and have never found myself sucked into the allure like others. The series is seen as one of the best examples of the JRPG by so many, and it’s amassed a huge following. So much so that, even in a year promising ...[Read More]

Functioning as a grand send off of the Dark Souls series, The Ringed City is the final DLC for Dark Souls III, and probably the last DLC for the series, ever. Dark Souls is being retired according the game’s director, Hidetaka Miyazaki. As such, the DLC has the job of delivering the fitting send-off the acclaimed series deserves. Like Ashes of Ariandel, The Ringed City is not for the faint o...[Read More]

Reviewed on PS4, copy supplied by PlayStation.  Taking you to a time where herds of robot goats gracefully stalk post-apocalyptic ruins, Horizon Zero Dawn has a rich setting and compelling narrative. On paper the premise of robot dinosaurs mingling with tribes of cavemen is kind of silly, it seems like something I would have day dreamed about as an eight year old Fortunately, Guerrilla Games have ...[Read More]

The world of eSports is big business, as is evident by the ridiculous prize funds and millions of viewers. Whether you consider video games as sports or not, you can’t deny the growth of the medium in the professional competitive arena. This has lead to more of a focus on positioning some games as eSports contenders, like the more recent Overwatch, and the term has found its way into our hom...[Read More]

Reviewed on PS4, copy supplied by publisher. It’s been some time since we last saw the Ghosts in action. More action-focused than Rainbow, but still very tactical, the Ghost Recon games have changed with each release, and this latest outing is no different. It ditches the future warfighter setting of the previous entries in favour of a more contemporary setting, and gone are the separate lev...[Read More]

Reviewed on Nintendo Switch, copy supplied by Nintendo. After what seemed like an eternity of waiting and rolling delays, Zelda Wii U finally entered the world with a bang… and on an entirely new console. Of course the old working title for Breath of the Wild is kind of funny looking back, but at least the final product more than makes up for it. And hey, those that bought a Wii U in anticip...[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] or: How I learned to stop worrying and love the blob

– Dominic Powell Having just finished last semesters exams, 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!’ has got to be the best procrastination game I’ve ever played. To the untrained eye, 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]
