Devil May Cry HD Collection review: Smokin’!

Review on PS4, copy provided by publisher. Before there was God of War, Bayonetta or Darksiders, there was Devil May Cry. Originally released in 2001 for the Playstation 2, Devil May Cry (and its two sequels) starred Dante, the cocky half-demon demon hunter – clad in a striking red trench coat and sometimes also a shirt. Collectively, these games were massively popular, and set the standard ...[Read More]

Monster Hunter World review: The best animal murdering game on the market

Reviewed on PS4, copy supplied by publisher. For the uninitiated, Monster Hunter World can be an overwhelming game. It turns out that hunting monsters isn’t as simple as it says on the tin. As my first Monster Hunter title, it wasn’t exactly what I was expecting – it was far better. Jumping into the game it’s clear the level of detail Capcom have put into this title is imme...[Read More]

Dead Rising 4: Frank’s Big Package review: Silly as ever

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Starting out life a an Xbox exclusive, Capcom’s seminal comedy horror zombie-fest, Dead Rising, has always been an impressive showing of on-screen action. Never afraid to pile on the sheer number of rotting undead, the series has been a polarising one, particularly in its early days, when core game mechanics and a reliance on escorting ...[Read More]

The Blue Bomber returns: Capcom announce a new Mega Man game

Seven years after the release of the retro-styled Mega Man X in 2010, Capcom have finally announced the next instalment in the famous Mega Man series with Mega Man 11 for current-gen consoles and PC.

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]

Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers review: Should have been a contender

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]

Why I hope the next Resident Evil game is just like RE7

This article contains spoilers for Resident Evil 7. In a previous article of mine I said I believed Resident Evil 4 to be the best game of the longstanding Resident Evil series. Even throughout most of my initial playthrough of Resident Evil 7, I still believed it. I had mixed feelings about RE7 initially – not as a horror game, however. If I was judging it by its standards as a general horror gam...[Read More]

Watch me cringing playing Resident Evil 7 in VR

I suppose it was always going to come to this. Resident Evil 7 is out and fully playable in Playstation VR, and my fellow editor Charlie responded to my suggestion of recording him playing it using the headset with a resounding “NOPE”, so it would be up to me to brave the horrors of the Baker mansion in a whole new level of immersion. I had some thoughts on the PSVR experience in my re...[Read More]

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard review: Home is where the family tries to kill you…

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Resident Evil 7 sure was riding on a lot of intrigue in the lead up to its release. What with the revelation the next instalment in the exclusively third-person franchise would be shifting to first-person, and it being about a guy trapped in a dilapidated house with some mad hillbillies rather than the old zombies, cities and Albert Wesker fa...[Read More]

Resident Evil VII gets an interesting looking collectible

So fingers and male appendages are two similarly shaped, but very different body parts, right? Well judging from a Resident Evil VII collectible item, the differences might have escaped Capcom’s attention. The USB is supposed to look like an infamous dummy finger from the Resident Evil VII demo, but instead looks like a crispy dick. It was handed out during Japan’s Biohazard Ambassador...[Read More]

Dead Rising 4 review: Silent night, hoooly shit, zombies!

Reviewed on: Xbox One. Copy supplied by publisher. It’s been 10 years since Dead Rising graced the Xbox 360, introducing the world to zombie mashing action. Dead Rising 4  revisits the original in a lot of ways, the story unfolds in Willamette Colorado, it has a shopping mall and Frank West once again is the protagonist, but not as you know him. Original voice actor Terence J. Rotolo has bee...[Read More]

Dead Rising review: I’ve covered wars, y’know!

Reviewed on PS4. Copy supplied by publisher.  You’re stood still, sweat dripping from your brow. Your hand bears the bruises of gripping your trusty baseball bat too hard, and your only remaining bullet is the one you’re saving for the inevitable should the worst happen. Ahead of you in the local game store they wait, hundreds of them. Filling up the room, greatly outnumbering the othe...[Read More]
