Charlie’s top three games of 2017

It’s that wonderful time of year again, where a stream of completely subjective lists flood onto the internet and stir up emotions. Well, rest assured dear friends, this is the only list out there that is 100% objective and based upon hours of scientific research.

Tom’s top three games of 2017

Wow, another year has gone by already? I guess I should have noticed due to the mania at the shopping centres and another mediocre Star Wars movie screening in cinemas (don’t @ me). I suppose that means it’s time to make an obligatory Game of the Year list. And for me personally, 2017 is a hard year to pick a top three from because to be honest, there weren’t that many mind blowi...[Read More]

Cuphead review: Turns out the 1930s hate you

Games that hopefully won’t be trash in 2017

About this time last year we did a list of games we were hyped for in the coming year. Considering No Man’s Sky  headed my list I’ve decided to change the format around slightly to games that I’m hoping won’t be garbage fires this year, because fuck hype. Also, I’m going to be repeating a couple entries in here because they didn’t come out in 2016 as expected, b...[Read More]

Charlie’s most anticipated games of 2016

  We’ve already discussed how 2015 was one of the best years for gaming in recent memory. With the likes of The Witcher 3, Bloodborne, Fallout 4, Rocket League, Metal Gear Solid V and Halo 5 there were some amazing games that dominated the market and our spare time. 2016 has a lot to live up to, but there are enough titles set for release this year that could make it another to remember...[Read More]

Games of PAX: Cuphead, Dark Souls III and Mario Tennis

Cuphead The first thing you’ll probably notice about Cuphead is the art style pulled straight from Steamboat Willie.
