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]

Friday the 13th review: Where players drop out like flies

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. As one of the most iconic movie villains of all time, Jason Voorhees has had his fair share of video game appearances. From the Atari 2600’s basic rendition, the NES’ awful, confusing mess, and home computer failures, he’s not exactly had it good, though. An appearance in Mortal Kombat X was a highlight however, with the sil...[Read More]

Rogue Trooper Redux review: I’m blue da ba dee da ba daa

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. There’s no stopping the remaster train, it seems, and even games that didn’t exactly set the world on fire on their initial release are being given a second chance. Today we have the eleven year-old 2000AD title, Rogue Trooper. Initially released in 2006, the original game on PS2 and Xbox was a decent cover-based shooter that did ...[Read More]

The Evil Within 2 review: Come in, have a terrifying hair monster

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Although clearly flawed, with some odd design decisions, the original Evil Within was nonetheless are good survival horror that featured some memorable encounters and a bizarre story containing twists, turns, and a great premise if you played through to the end. Similar in many ways to Resident Evil 4, with a darker, grittier and more brutal ...[Read More]

WWE 2K18 review: Backstage boredom

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. We all know not to expect the world from each annual WWE iteration. For over a decade now Yukes’ WWE titles, be they published by THQ or 2K, have been largely minor updates. Rather than the major engine overhauls, new fighting systems, and other exaggerated claims made by the studio, each release brings baby steps upgrades, some good, s...[Read More]

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen review: Must try harder

Reviewed on: Playstation 4 There are remasters that come along to milk the very last drops from the cash cow, struggling to wring the last remnants of goodness from that dried up, wrinkled old udder. Then, there are remasters that actually warrant a return to an older title, using the best new technology to improve older releases, perhaps even making them into the games the developers originally w...[Read More]

Wolfenstein II doubles down on its “controversial” Nazis-are-bad stance

Recently, the Wolfenstein Twitter account, as well as publisher Bethesda, copped some flak for posting a trailer for the upcoming Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus which called to “Make America Nazi Free Again”. There were those who arced up over the belief that the developers were politicising the game, which is set in an alternate 1960s where the Nazis won World War II and America liv...[Read More]

Forza Motorsport 7 review: An amazing racing sim, with loot boxes

Reviewed on: Xbox One. Copy supplied by publisher. Racing simulators have never been my forte, as I’ve acknowledged previously. I like my racing games to be crazy bouts of super fast, teeth clenching, explosive fun. The simplest way I can put it is, for me, a great racing game is one where smashing an opponent into a wall is not only acceptable, but encouraged. Forza Motorsport 7 is the comp...[Read More]

Check out some new Jurassic World Evolution in-game footage

Jurassic World Evolution was easily the most interesting thing announced in Xbox’s Gamescom coverage a couple month’s back. No one had any idea the game by Frontier Developments was in the works, but it got everyone excited because the idea of a modern dinosaur park creation simulator is one only the most Jeff Goldblum-ey of people wouldn’t be in favour of. Now a new trailer for ...[Read More]

Observer review: Blade stumbler…

Reviewed on: PC. Copy supplied by publisher. There are few things more disappointing than a game that features some great ideas but ultimately fails to live up to any of them. Like having a combination of ice cream and jelly for dessert. I love me some ice cream, and jelly too is a wonderful concoction of deliciousness and wobble, but put them together in a bowl and all you have is a slimy, squidg...[Read More]
