Bloodborne The Old Hunters

– Charlie Braithwaite From Software’s Bloodborne was simultaneously one of the most interesting games and one of the most frustrating games that I’ve played so far this year.  It had a good balance of difficulty and intrigue that made it compelling, up until the spiders came in and I just noped my way out of ever finishing it. As I’ve discussed before, spiders in games are ...[Read More]

LoadScreen play Spooky’s: Episode 3

– Charlie Braithwaite It has been some time since we last ventured into the pit of despair and mild horror that is Spooky’s House of Jumpscares. This time we’re back with yours truly on the helm, because Tom kind sucked at the game and was too shaken from his last bout to continue. Without further delay, here it is, 16 minutes of candy floss terror, general panic, and tummy kisse...[Read More]

Mad Max launch trailer and some dirty cars

–  Aaron Birch The Mad Max videogame has launched worldwide now, including here in Australia where the legend began, and the silver screen hero’s rebirth continues with Avalanche’s open world apocalypse filled with fisticuffs and plenty of high speed combat. Clearly based upon Fury Road‘s style, Mad Max the videogame tells its own separate story, this time actually revolving arou...[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]

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]

LoadScreen play Spooky’s: Episode 2

– Charlie Braithwaite Some things are an absolute beauty to behold. Like a rainbow on a crisp spring day, or like a grown man emitting a feeble squeak of fear over a cardboard tree. In this run through of Spooky’s House of Jump Scares such a squeak can be heard coming from the mouth of LoadScreen’s very own Tom Heath. To witness the very undoing of a man for yourself check out th...[Read More]

1: Babies 2: Guns 3: ???? 4: Profit (or a government watch-list)

– Charlie Braithwaite Babies are cute, right? That’ a pretty safe sentence to write. This next one might not be so safe. Ever have the urge to take control of a newborn, make it wear silly hats, arm it to the teeth and then have it shoot at other babies? No? Yeah… good… me neither. A new kickstarter campaign for the game PaciFire seems to defy logic and goes straight into i...[Read More]

INK: A beautifully frustrating platformer

– Charlie Braithwaite INK was released on Steam earlier this week. You may have noticed it pop up in your new releases section, and you may have also wondered whether it’s worth the US $4.99 price tag. Well the answer to that is both “yes” and “oh my god why are you punishing me?” The premise of the game is simple, you are a white square that splashes out ink wh...[Read More]

LoadScreen play Spooky’s House of Jump Scares

– Charlie Braithwaite Some people are good with horror games, in fact they actually enjoy them. I am not one of those people. Below is a video of me playing the first 100 rooms of the very cute and very terrifying Spooky’s House of Jump Scares. Incidentally, you should watch this if you want to hear a grown man gasp like a cartoon housewife seeing a mouse. You can jump scare Charlie on...[Read More]

Battlefield 4: Just when I thought I was out

– Charlie Braithwaite It had been almost a year since I played Battlefield 4. Yet, with the birthing of a new PC, I decided it was time to dust off my rage face and give it another shot. Coming out of retirement with a game can end pretty horribly. Especially when you find out the skills you thought you had have withered and died. I’d learned that mistake several times with StarCraft i...[Read More]
