Prey review: Ziggy Stardust and the coffee mugs from mars

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]

Prey speedrun clocks the game in 20 minutes

Speedrunners are crazy, you guys. The act of seeing how quickly one can beat a video game is taken extremely seriously by the speedrunning community.

Dishonored 2 review: Look into my eyes…

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. The Thief series is one of my favourites of all time. Up to and including Deadly Shadows, I’ve always found it to be the best overall stealth game around, mixing the immersion of FPS with the inherent tension of trying to remain undetected whilst you move like a ghost through the shadows. The series boasted fantastic level design and so...[Read More]
