Reanimating Vampire the Masquerade

– Karly TaylorThere’s a running gag amongst Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines‘ decade-old community that as soon as someone mentions this cult classic on the internet, someone somewhere reading it will inevitably reinstall it on their computer. It’s that good. In fact, if my laptop wasn’t currently out of commission, I would likely be replaying it now for the umpteen...[Read More]

How to survive Until Dawn

– Karly Taylor  I don’t have the words in my limited English vocabulary to fully express how much I loved Until Dawn. I followed its progress from the time it was initially a first person PlayStation 3 game, to the gorgeous cinematic delight it’s become. The dramatic change became obvious in its E3 reveal last year, showcasing the intense SAW-like sequence between two of the eigh...[Read More]

LawBreakers gameplay trailer revealed

– Charlie Braithwaite If you missed it, earlier this week Gears of War‘s creator Cliff Bleszinski announced his first game since leaving Epic Games in 2012, LawBreakers. The premise is that an event called “The Shattering” caused the Moon to explode, which turns out isn’t too good for Earth. Fragments of the Moon rained down on our planet and pretty much made gravity punch Sir Is...[Read More]

Corpse of Discovery: Dark sci-fi exploration

– Charlie Braithwaite Corpse of Discovery is a new sci-fi exploration game by Phospor Games. The review for this game may seem a bit bi-polar as I enjoyed parts of the game, but was very underwhelmed with others. In Corpse of Discovery you play as an astronaut working for the Corps of Discovery (see what they did there?), your ship has crash landed and you have no signal to contact home, fro...[Read More]

SMITE on Xbox One reviewed by a MOBA heretic

– Charlie Braithwaite I haven’t always seen eye to eye with MOBAs. I don’t get the fun in grinding for close to an hour to have it all erased just to start again. So when SMITE by Hi-Rez Studios, recently ported to Xbox One, found its way onto my desk to review, I was hesitant. After deciding that it looked different enough to warrant me playing, I dove into it expecting the wors...[Read More]

The Witcher music video you always wanted

– Charlie Braithwaite Ever since Queen created the first ever music video back in 1705, we’ve seen endless artistic interpretations of songs about big butts on MTV, but very rarely have we seen videos of Geralt of Rivia slicing up a monster. If you’re like me and played The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt obsessively, the soundtrack often got stuck in your head. Well fear not, for now that ...[Read More]

Gears of War creator’s new game: LawBreakers

– Tom Heath Cliff Bleszinski, known for his work creating the Gears of War franchise (but we all know his greatest achievement was Jazz JackRabbit on DOS), has announced his first game since leaving Epic Games in 2012. Titled LawBreakers, the game is a free-to-play sci-fi competitive FPS being developed by Boss Key Productions, the studio founded by Bleszinski and Arjan Brussee (co-founder o...[Read More]

Silent Hill 2: masterpiece of horror

– Karly Taylor I was a tender fifteen years of age on my first trip to the sleepy town of Silent Hill. Deep in the bowels of the Historical Society, I stood at the end of a large, winding hallway. The choking darkness enveloped me as faint static crackled from my pocket radio, indicating that there were still enemies nearby, despite the gore dripping from the end of my rusted pipe. With my h...[Read More]

Gryphon Knight Epic review: old school tough

– Tom Heath Gryphon Knight Epic, released earlier this month on Steam by developer Cyber Rhino Studios, is very much rooted in the classic days of 2D side-scrollers. It’s relatively simple to pick up, has stunning pixel art visuals and some nice, tongue-in-cheek writing. A personal highlight was the main protagonist shouting “I’ll teach you for crushing other peoples’...[Read More]

Microtransactions in MGS V: this has got to stop

– Tom Heath By now you’ve all probably seen the early reviews for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain hitting the internet, and like me you’re probably fuming that we have to wait a week to play it. It’s my most anticipated game of the year and I missed out on a review copy, so I too am reading about how the game is the renaissance and lamenting the week long wait. However...[Read More]

The Wizards of Trinity Bellwoods

– Karolina Firman Hipsters are literally everywhere, you have to beat them off with a stick (Editor’s note: don’t google that phrase). Or a series of sticks connected to other sticks, in some level of complicated Transformer like hipster-stick tron. Where was I? Oh yeah hipsters in games. Kickstarter is one of many crowd-funding websites used by developers to make new and innovat...[Read More]
