Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice review: Be wary of the voices in your head…

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Developed with the aid of neuroscientists and experts in the field of mental health, it’s fair to say Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice isn’t your typical game. Going into it, I had purposely avoided a lot of the run up to the release, as I found the premise very exciting, and wanted to be as fresh as I could to the experience. A...[Read More]

Tacoma Review – Like Prey without guns

Reviewed on: Xbox One I had almost no idea what Tacoma was about prior to playing it. I’d watched the trailers and read a little bit about it but only garnered that it’s a walking-simulator style game set in space, and that it’s developed by the same team that created Gone Home, Fullbright Company. It’s certainly reminiscent of Gone Home, only set on a space station and with more dialogue. A lot m...[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]

Modern Warfare Remastered is getting a super expensive standalone release tomorrow

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is officially getting a standalone release following an a recent announcement from Activision. In a decision that is sure to bring some relief to the small group of people who held out on purchasing the Legacy or Legacy Pro editions of last year’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, the rerelease of Modern Warfare will arrive on PS4 both digitally and in r...[Read More]

Overwatch loot boxes are about to get less terrible

Look, I love Overwatch. I mean, it was my 2016 Game of the Year, which for a story-less, multiplayer only game is one heck of an achievement. What can I say, I had a great year hooking pesky Tracers and raining justice from elevated positions. But despite Overwatch’s many great elements, its gambling-esque, majorly stacked against you loot box system is the worst. In order to unlock the cosm...[Read More]

Perception review: Lost in the dark

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]

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War calls for aid, and October 2017 will answer

Another day, another major video game release delayed. Yes, Middle-Earth: Shadow of War has been delayed from its August release date to October 10, 2017 according to a post by developer Monolith’s community manager Monolith_Andy. The reason for the delay is the usual “we want to make sure we deliver the best possible experience” affair. “Middle-earth: Shadow of War expands...[Read More]

Strafe review: Strafe outta Compton

Reviewed on: PC. Copy supplied by publisher. Capturing the vibe of classic video games while implementing the benefits of modern technology is a tricky thing to pull off, with last year’s DOOM being a rare exception. But where id Software’s sequel was a modern looking shooter with classic influences, Strafe by Pixel Titans strives to achieve the opposite: to bring that retro FPS feel k...[Read More]

Far Cry 5 teaser confirms Montana setting

Ahead of a worldwide reveal later this week, Ubisoft has released some teaser videos for Far Cry 5 which confirm the game will be set in Montana. Specifically, it will be set in the fictitious “Hope County”, a region that seems a beautiful as it is eerie as balls. Check out the videos below, all of which depict the gorgeous landscapes of Hope County, only to be ruined by the occasional...[Read More]

The Surge review: Sci-Fi Souls

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. There have been various attempts to clone From Software’s Souls series ever since the punishing action RPG burst onto the scene following its Playstation exclusive début with Demon’s Souls. Most recently we had Sony’s own Nioh, from Team Ninja, and it was a very solid effort that’s already won itself a loyal following....[Read More]

Prey speedrun clocks the game in 20 minutes

Speedrunners are crazy, you guys. The act of seeing how quickly one can beat a video game is taken extremely seriously by the speedrunning community. They outline rules for each run, ranging from needing to complete the game 100%, just having to reach the end of the story, or even being limited to certain weapons/items. And then there’s the “anything goes” type of speedrun, where...[Read More]

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 review: Off target

Reviewed on: Xbox One. Copy supplied by publisher. The Sniper Ghost Warrior series belongs up there with Metal Gear Solid with regards to having the most nonsensical, most video gamey title possible. Now I love Metal Gear Solid (seriously, I really like Metal Gear Solid), but even I can admit that its name is pretty silly. After my partner asked me what game I was reviewing, and I said “Snip...[Read More]
