Wipeout: Omega Collection review: Now THIS is a racing game

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. I have a very troubled relationship with racing games. Like I said in my Driveclub VR review, I don’t really like the kind of racing games hardcore fans of the genre like. You know, the “simulators”, where careful attention has been made to make sure the cars feel like real cars, where spinning out and crashing is considered...[Read More]

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]

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]

Destiny 2’s Beta analysis – The good, the bad, and the beautiful

There wasn’t much to do in Destiny 2’s console beta, but there’s plenty to talk about. From PVE to PVP, let’s start with the good. The opening mission was one of the best ever As Charlie said in his initial impressions, the opening mission, ‘Homecoming,’ quickly set up Destiny 2’s story. The Cabal are invading, we meet Gaul, and spoiler alert, we lose. Destiny 2’s plot is looking to be stron...[Read More]

Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age review: Still great 10 years on

Reviewed on: Playstation 4 Final Fantasy sure is undergoing something of a resurgence of late. There have been a whole host of releases from Square Enix for its flagship RPG series, not least of which is the excellent Final Fantasy XV. Alongside this, and titbits of news about the in development remaster of the beloved Final Fantasy VII, we now have Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, a remaster of...[Read More]

Crash Bandicoot: N.Sane Trilogy review: N.Credibly N.Joyable N.Third Pun

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]

Valkyria Revolution review: One step forward, two steps back

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]

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]

Injustice 2 review: Why did you say that name?

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. WB and NeatherRealm Studios have been on a roll of late, with Mortal Kombat raking in critical acclaim, and the original Injustice being well-received by fighter and comic fans alike. It was so popular, it even spawned an actual DC comic. It’s been a while since the first game introduced us to a bad guy Superman, and a fractured Justice...[Read More]
