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]

Dead Rising 4: Frank’s Big Package review: Silly as ever

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Starting out life a an Xbox exclusive, Capcom’s seminal comedy horror zombie-fest, Dead Rising, has always been an impressive showing of on-screen action. Never afraid to pile on the sheer number of rotting undead, the series has been a polarising one, particularly in its early days, when core game mechanics and a reliance on escorting ...[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]

DOOM VFR review: Hell of a time

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Last year’s DOOM reboot was a goddamn incredible game. id Software’s re-imagining of the property embraced the classic’s old school feel, threw in some cool modern twists, and set it all to the most rockin’ soundtrack ever seen in a game. It was easily the best single player shooter of 2016. And now we have DOOM VFR, t...[Read More]

Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds review: More of a great thing

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Understandably high up on many game of the year lists, Horizon Zero Dawn was already an immense, and brilliant open world romp in its vanilla form, so the idea of having more of the game to plough through is enough of a reason to give DLC, The Frozen Wilds, a go. What we have here is an expansion that adds a whole new area to the world map, i...[Read More]

Warframe: Plains of Eidolon review: more like Free-to-RAD

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. A shining light amidst the current ugliness of microtransactions and loot boxes, Warframe is, and always has been, one of the best examples of free-to-play done right. In fact, today, I’d comfortably say it’s the best of the bunch, bar none. Warframe has been growing and evolving constantly over four years, and while it started ou...[Read More]

Valkyria Chronicles 4 announced for PS4, Xbox One and Switch

Seven years after its last mainline English language release with Valkyria Chronicles II on the PlayStation Portable, Sega has now announced the return of the action/strategy hybrid franchise to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
