Conan Exiles review: Janky but fun

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Playing everything from Minecraft to Ark, and 7 Days to Die to Trove, all of my experiences have one thing in common – I inevitably get bored. You see, it’s all well and good having an elaborate crafting system that allows the building of all sorts of equipment and impressive bases, tools that help you shape the very world around you ho...[Read More]

Extinction review: Wipe it out

Reviewed on: PlayStation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. If you’re a fan of Attack on Titan, and you’re looking for another game that recreates the epic showdown between man and giant, well, you’d better keep on looking, because Extinction certainly is not the game you’re looking for. Players take on the role of the last Sentinel, a magic warrior able to fight Ravenii– giant...[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]

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]

Sea of Thieves lets you weaponize vomit

Forget cutlasses, cannons and pistols – it’s all about buckets of vomit when it comes to pirate warfare. Over the past few days I’ve been sailing around the world of Sea of Thieves, throwing stomach pulp on people. I’ll break this majestic move down for you; if you smash back a couple tankards of grog in Sea of Thieves you’ll start to go a bit woozy. Eventually after getting some...[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]

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]

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.  Set in the fictional continent of Europa, players controlled a small squad of units as they take down the opposing army with a unique mix of turn based st...[Read More]

Elex review: One heck of a slog

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Coming from Piranha Bytes, the same team behind cult RPG series, Gothic, as well as Risen, there’s quite some experience behind open world action RPG, Elex. Gothic has a lot of fans, but Risen is not exactly well known for its quality. This leaves Elex as a bit of a wild card, so how does it fare? Elex is a sci-fi fantasy RPG that takes...[Read More]

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus review: Somewhat Glorious Basterds

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is a confronting experience, and deliberately so. After all, this is a game about an alternate history where the Nazis weren’t defeated in World War 2, and have gone on to dominate the globe; their experiments and genocidal ideals unchecked and unchallenged. Swastikas emblazon the streets, the police, an...[Read More]
