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]

How to unlock the true ending and solve the dummy finger puzzle in Resident Evil 7’s midnight update demo

In case you weren’t aware, Capcom recently updated their demo of Resident Evil 7 on the PlayStation 4 with the “midnight” version.

Resident Evil 4 review: Like a fine wine

Reviewed on PS4, copy supplied by publisher.  It’s hard to believe that Resident Evil has had such a titanic fall from grace. Once one of the most respected, and successful series in gaming, popularising the survival horror genre, Capcom’s money spinner has since become an industry laughing stock, with poor release after poor release. Aside from Revelations, which was actually pretty g...[Read More]

Umbrella Corps review: Bring out yer dead!

Well, what a steaming load that was! Probably not the words Capcom wanted to see at the start of any review, but there’s just no nice way to say it I’m afraid. Umbrella Corps has to be one of the worst big name releases I’ve played this year, if not the worst. Umbrella Corps is one of those games where you simply can’t figure out why on Earth it exists, and by the looks of ...[Read More]

Why Resident Evil 4 is the best game in the franchise

When the nostalgia hit me like a tidal wave of bricks and the idea for this article presented itself, I was tempted to write my reasoning behind it as “because it fuckin’ is”, followed by issuing a challenge inviting anyone who disagrees to come and fight me and end it there. Eloquent and classy, I know. But I’ve found after conversing with fellow gamers that this seems to be a pretty ...[Read More]

Ode to old school horror

– Karly Taylor By definition, an ode is typically a piece of writing in lyrical/poetic format, created with the intention of being sung as a melody. Now, I’m not going to do that for two reasons. First reason being I’m a journalist, not a song writer, so anything I churn out in an effort to try and be musical will turn out more of a parody than anything else. Secondly, nobody wan...[Read More]
