Reviewed on Xbox One. Tokyo 42 is an open-world bullet-hell isometric shooter (say that five times fast) set in the sci-fi world of Tokyo in 2042. It opens with the news that you’ve been framed for a murder by an unknown assassin, and to uncover the true killer you must enter the underbelly of Tokyo and become an assassin. It’s a little hypocritical, but most people use Nanomeds, a medical technol...[Read More]

Reviewed on Nintendo Switch, copy supplied by Nintendo.  I’ll be frank from the get go with this one, I don’t care for Street Fighter II that much anymore. Sure, I can see its relevance as a game of note, and I used to enjoy it A LOT back in the day, but with an entire sub-series with seven entries dedicated to the game, I think we’re at a point where we can move on. That being s...[Read More]

Hardware supplied by Razer. When it comes to headsets I wouldn’t say I’m much of a connoisseur, but there are a number of things I look for. Naturally sound quality, comfort and flexibility rank pretty high, things which the Razer Man O’ War 7.1 has in spades. Transitioning from my old Logitech G930s to the Man O’ War 7.1 wired model was smoother than I expected. The G930s ...[Read More]

Reviewed on PS4, copy supplied by publisher.  Aside from the obvious exceptions of people turning into demons, robotic super soldiers, and hair gel that could probably glue a super tanker to the ceiling, Tekken has always been a more realistic fighter than most. As with its ilk, such as Virtua Fighter, Dead or Alive, and even Soul Calibur, to a point, Tekken‘s combat has always been slower a...[Read More]

Reviewed on: PC. Copy supplied by publisher. Capturing the vibe of classic video games while implementing the benefits of modern technology is a tricky thing to pull off, with last year’s DOOM being a rare exception. But where id Software’s sequel was a modern looking shooter with classic influences, Strafe by Pixel Titans strives to achieve the opposite: to bring that retro FPS feel k...[Read More]

Reviewed on Xbox One, copy supplied by publisher. My experience with RiME pretty much boiled down to that Mr. Plow ad from The Simpsons, you know the one. Stuff happened, it was artistic, it ended, and I wasn’t sure what had just happened. That’s not to say that RiME wasn’t a good experience, it had its moments, but it still left me wondering why that particular story needed to b...[Read More]

Reviewed on PS4, copy supplied by publisher.  From the get go I want to make it very clear that my experience with Prey has been a very, very mixed bag. There are aspects of it that I adored, and other aspects that were mind numbingly terrible. Sci-fi horror is something that is very much up my alley, with the real measuring stick being story. Something which Prey delivers, but the way it goes abo...[Read More]

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. WB and NeatherRealm Studios have been on a roll of late, with Mortal Kombat raking in critical acclaim, and the original Injustice being well-received by fighter and comic fans alike. It was so popular, it even spawned an actual DC comic. It’s been a while since the first game introduced us to a bad guy Superman, and a fractured Justice...[Read More]

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. There have been various attempts to clone From Software’s Souls series ever since the punishing action RPG burst onto the scene following its Playstation exclusive début with Demon’s Souls. Most recently we had Sony’s own Nioh, from Team Ninja, and it was a very solid effort that’s already won itself a loyal following....[Read More]

Reviewed on Xbox One, copy supplied by the AFL.  Look, sometimes it’s hard to be critical and still appear unbiased. But also… sometimes something is so objectively terrible you have to hold its head underwater whilst gently sobbing. Nobody wants the savagery, but sometimes you need to go there. Yeah, that’s a strong statement of intent to start a game review on, but the followin...[Read More]

Reviewed on PC, copy supplied by publisher.  Back in high school I was part of a pretty elite club of social climbers and studs. At lunchtime we would take our laminated cards into a deserted classroom and play the fuck out of some Warhammer. Armies of poorly painted Orks would butt heads with Imperial Guard to cheers and ecstatic dice rolling. Memories like these put Warhammer 40,000 in a place c...[Read More]

Reviewed on: Xbox One. Copy supplied by publisher. The Sniper Ghost Warrior series belongs up there with Metal Gear Solid with regards to having the most nonsensical, most video gamey title possible. Now I love Metal Gear Solid (seriously, I really like Metal Gear Solid), but even I can admit that its name is pretty silly. After my partner asked me what game I was reviewing, and I said “Snip...[Read More]
