Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Goddamn, nostalgia is a hell of thing, isn’t it? I was a gigantic fan of Crash Bandicoot when I was a child, having smashed through the original trilogy, along with Crash Team Racing and Crash Bash, on my old PS1. As a hardcore Playstation fan back in the day, Crash and his cohort of sidekicks and villains were essentially my Mario, Lui...[Read More]

Reviewed on Nintendo Switch, copy supplied by publisher.  We reviewed Death Squared after it came out on Xbox One, PS4 and PC back in March. And you know what? Not a lot has changed with the puzzle game since its release on the Nintendo Switch, aside from some extra content. If you want to know the finer details of the game, check out the original review – which I’ll link here again fo...[Read More]

Coming out of nowhere we have Get Even, a rather intriguing title that mixes first person shooting and exploration, with puzzle solving and a dab of psychological drama. It also stars a very angry, very northern Englishman. As Cole Black, players travel through a strange and surreal adventure in which Black has no idea what’s going on, or where he is. Guided by the enigmatic, Red, and with h...[Read More]

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. You’d better like the word “loading”, because if you play Valkyria Revolution you’ll be seeing it a whole lot. That’s one of the first things I noticed when I fired up this spin-off from the Valkyria Chronicles series. This is not good, not at all, especially when you get tired of loading screens before you even ...[Read More]

I wasn’t overly impressed with the initial release of TES: Online. I found it to be a hollow shell of the license it’s built upon. A plain online MMORPG with an Elder Scrolls skin applied, but missing the heart and soul to go along with it. TES: Online wasn’t a bad game, but I found it could have been any MMO, and taking the Elder Scrolls name away from it wouldn’t have mad...[Read More]

Reviewed on: PC. Copy supplied by publisher. “Run-n-hide” horror games are nothing new, nor are they in short supply these days. The success of indie games such as Amnesia: The Dark Descent and the Outlast franchise showed that powerlessness against a formidable foe can certainly get the heart pumping, and thus a genre was born. But instead of being just another face in the spooky crow...[Read More]

Reviewed on PC, copy supplied by publisher.  Helicopters touch down hard in a rice paddy, rocking the G.Is inside. As they rush out into the open landing zone the jungle around them erupts with gunfire. Body parts explode in clouds of crimson and dying moans fill the air. Pinned down in a bunker and awaiting reinforcements the commander desperately radios for Napalm in the tree line so his men can...[Read More]

Reviewed on Nintendo Switch, copy supplied by Nintendo.  If you pause and think about it for a while, ARMS is an objectively terrible name for anything apart from literal arms. That being said, ARMS is a pretty great game, and another feather in the cap for Nintendo’s Switch. The colourful fighter has a similar vibe to Overwatch, with a vague premise and a range of great characters that capt...[Read More]

Reviewed on Xbox One. Tokyo 42 is an open-world bullet-hell isometric shooter (say that five times fast) set in the sci-fi world of Tokyo in 2042. It opens with the news that you’ve been framed for a murder by an unknown assassin, and to uncover the true killer you must enter the underbelly of Tokyo and become an assassin. It’s a little hypocritical, but most people use Nanomeds, a medical technol...[Read More]

Reviewed on Nintendo Switch, copy supplied by Nintendo.  I’ll be frank from the get go with this one, I don’t care for Street Fighter II that much anymore. Sure, I can see its relevance as a game of note, and I used to enjoy it A LOT back in the day, but with an entire sub-series with seven entries dedicated to the game, I think we’re at a point where we can move on. That being s...[Read More]

Hardware supplied by Razer. When it comes to headsets I wouldn’t say I’m much of a connoisseur, but there are a number of things I look for. Naturally sound quality, comfort and flexibility rank pretty high, things which the Razer Man O’ War 7.1 has in spades. Transitioning from my old Logitech G930s to the Man O’ War 7.1 wired model was smoother than I expected. The G930s ...[Read More]

Reviewed on PS4, copy supplied by publisher.  Aside from the obvious exceptions of people turning into demons, robotic super soldiers, and hair gel that could probably glue a super tanker to the ceiling, Tekken has always been a more realistic fighter than most. As with its ilk, such as Virtua Fighter, Dead or Alive, and even Soul Calibur, to a point, Tekken‘s combat has always been slower a...[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]
