Yakuza 6: The Song of Life Review: Forgiveness, please

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. There’s certainly no shortage of Yakuza action these days. It seem like Sega’s seminal Japanese crime drama releases a new iteration every month at the moment, both new, and remastered, and more and more gamers are getting the chance to partake in one of gaming’s best series. Yakuza 6, however, is not a prequel or remaster, ...[Read More]

The American Dream review: Gun for the whole family

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Normally I’d say launching The American Dream within 24 hours of US students protesting legislative inaction following a mass school shooting was maybe a bit tactless, since audience’s may not have been in the mood to have a laugh about guns. But when you think about it, given the alarming frequency of mass shootings in the US, an...[Read More]

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]

Nacon Wired Compact Controller review: Small, but decently formed

A good controller can make all the difference between enjoying your favourite games, and struggling through them with awkward controls and poor responsiveness. Whilst Sony’s own DualShock controllers are amongst the best around, there’s always room for alternatives, especially if those alternatives are cheaper, and/or offer new features. Sometimes, simply a small change in the controll...[Read More]

Available via the PlayStation Store, the demo lets you let loose as the white-suited main protagonist of the series with a penchant for getting easily distracted by nightclubs, arcades ...[Read More]

Dynasty Warriors 9 review: The art of bore

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. When you’re responsible for a video game series that’s more than 20 years old, and has been practically identical in every single release, it must be hard to break the mould, but break it Koei Tecmo desperately needed to do, as the series has become very state and predictable with each successive numbered, and spin-off release. Dy...[Read More]

Final Fantasy XV DLC review: Fun but should have been in the main game

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Releasing in November 2016, Final Fantasy XV is the latest numbered entry in the hugely popular RPG series, and in the opinion of many also one of the best. A true departure from the usual format of the Final Fantasy games, XV saw the return to a massive, open world and player freedom, with all manner of gameplay features that meshed together...[Read More]

Life is Strange Before the Storm review: Lacking Burch

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. A prequel to the almost universally adored Life is Strange, Before the Storm is a smaller outing this time, consisting of only three episodes. It focuses on Chloe as the protagonist, as well as Rachel, a name anyone who’s played the original game will be very familiar with. Rachel was the girl who went missing in the first game, and Bef...[Read More]

Shadow of the Colossus Remake review: A masterpiece reborn

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. If ever there was a time where I wish I could be playing a video game again for the first time, this is it. Shadow of the Colossus, as magnificent as it is both as a game and a piece of art (yes, video games can be art!), is a game that is never as good as that first time playing it. That’s not to say it’s not worth revisiting, I have done so...[Read More]

God of War launches April 20, here’s a new story trailer

Santa Monica Studios have finally unveiled the release date for God of War, along with a cool new story trailer. In a post on the Playstation Blog, game director Cory Barlog revealed that the next chapter in the saga of Kratos, the world’s angriest Spartan, is dropping April 20, 2018. (Yes, ha ha, 4/20. Get it out of your system.) Well, it may not be accurate to define Kratos by his anger an...[Read More]

Skyrim VR review: I wanted to vomit on Alduin, but it’s still a great game

Reviewed on PlayStation 4, copy supplied by publisher. If you thought the only thing Skyrim was lacking was blurry visuals and an overwhelming sense of nausea, then you will be so stoked with Skyrim VR. Okay, maybe that sounds bad, but in reality, Skyrim VR is a pretty solid game. Sure, you’ve probably played it a million times already, but the world does benfit from the new perspective, eve...[Read More]

Dark Souls Remastered announced for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch

Dark Souls, the hugely influential (not to mention tough as nails) action game from 2011, will be seeing a remaster for current generation consoles this year, publisher Namco Bandai announced today. With Dark Souls III and the Scholar of the First Sin re-release of Dark Souls II on PS4 and Xbox One, this is the first time that owners of those consoles can play the entire Dark Souls trilogy on the ...[Read More]
