Fe Review: Impawsibly Beautiful

Reviewed on Xbox One Fe is a uniquely gorgeous platformer about a fox-like cub, a ‘Fe’, who uses its singing to unite with other animals to stop an invasion of robots, the Silent Ones, that are capturing the animals for… some reason. At least, that’s how I attempted to explain the story to a friend. Fe doesn’t utilise any dialogue; an interesting narrative concept that’s hard to pull off successfu...[Read More]

Battlefront II was actually great for games

In a year with new and innovative games like Breath of the Wild and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, the game that had the best impact on the video game industry in 2017 was Battlefront II. Prior to EA and DICE’s disastrous launch, there was no tangible evidence to show that microtransactions had a significant impact on sales. Sure, you and a few friends might have decided to boycott a game in prote...[Read More]

The Sims 4 console review: Little Computer People

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. These days, it’s relatively easy to port a console game to PC, it happens all the time, but the reverse isn’t as common. This is largely because PC games are often made specifically with the PC gamer in mind, and because the technical elements of the conversion can make it very difficult for a developer to make that jump from home...[Read More]

Star Wars Battlefront II review: So this is how lootboxes die, with thunderous applause

Reviewed on PS4, copy supplied by publisher.  There’s been an awakening. People aren’t happy with lootboxes, and Star Wars Battlefront II has found itself the womp rat facing down a blaster shot of outrage. What should have been a superior follow up to the lackluster first entry falls flat in more ways than one. The rebooted franchise may look gorgeous, but it’s been let down by ...[Read More]

Titanfall 2 gets its best free DLC and its worst microtransactions

This past week, Titanfall 2 dropped its latest free content update in the form of ‘Frontier Shield,’ adding two new maps, camos, balance changes, and best of all, the co-op gametype, Frontier Defense. The first new map is ‘Township’, an urban style arena for the ‘Live Fire’ gametype. I had my doubts about this map, due to all the potential camping spots, but all reports say that it’s one of the be...[Read More]

Highlights from the EA showcase – E3 2017

E3 2017 has well and truly kicked off with EA’s press conference earlier this morning. Of course, we were still fast asleep at 5am, but that doesn’t mean we’re not across it all! Here are the highlights from EA’s conference. BioWare announce a new IP The RPG giants revealed a teaser trailer for a new sci-fi/fantasy game called Anthem. The trailer has some serious Game of Th...[Read More]

Mass Effect Andromeda review: Galaxies behind

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]

Star Wars Battlefront II looks like it’s learned from the mistakes of the first

This morning we were treated to a trailer for Star Wars Battlefront II, which for reasons that escape me isn’t called Star Wars Battlefront IV. A sequel to Battlefront‘s 2015 reboot, which had just a few problems, it looks like DICE/EA have learned from the past. The first reboot was a pretty lackluster experience, sure it looked amazing, but the gameplay was severely limited. With no ...[Read More]

Guys, Mass Effect: Andromeda has a new trailer and it’s pretty rad

Mass Effect: Andromeda, Bioware’s next instalment in their gigantic space opera franchise, is just around the corner, due for release on March 23 (March 21 in the US). That less than two month wait is still going to feel like a long time for those excited to jump back into the series’ sprawling, deep sci-fi universe, so as a nice gift (or perhaps a cruel exacerbation of the wait time),...[Read More]

Mass Effect: Andromeda has a release date, and it’s soon

After many years of silence and a slow drip feed of information in the past few months, developer Bioware have confirmed Mass Effect: Andromeda will be launching on March 21 2017 in North America and March 23 in Australia/Europe. Bioware general manager Aaryn Flynn made the announcement this morning in a blog post where he thanked players for their patience, and surprisingly “...[Read More]

Battlefield 1 review: A bleak masterpiece

Reviewed on PC & PS4, PS4 copy supplied by publisher. The second you boot up Battlefield 1 you’re introduced to a series of soldiers who lose their lives no matter how well you play. The quick succession of deaths and the chaos fuelled muddy setting is designed to do one thing, show you the horrors of war in one of the darkest periods of the 20th Century. It’s done incredibly well,...[Read More]

Titanfall 2 Titan Tips – Mechs maketh the man

Previously we looked at the Pilot; now we move onto the titular Titans. First, let’s start with general ways to earn your Titan. The most straightforward way to earn build time is killing minions, pilots, and even just damaging Titans. Capturing objectives and amping points in Amped Hardpoint matches will also help to build your Titan faster, so PTFO. The most neglected method, but also the fastes...[Read More]
