Fated: The Silent Oath (PSVR) Review – Highway to Hel

When PSVR launched back in October, Sony’s virtual reality headset had an impressive start. A large varied portfolio of titles with quality exclusives, and a simple set up made it a very tempting entry point into the wonderful world of VR gaming. Unfortunately, less than six months after the exceptional launch, games for Sony’s entry…

Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition (PS4) Review – …All Out of Gum

If you didn’t play Bulletstorm when it was first released way back in 2011, I’m disappointed but not surprised. It’s one of those game’s that deserves a spot along with Raven’s SIngulatiry on the ‘Best shooters of 360/PS3 era that no buggered played’ list. People Can Fly’s follow up to the wonderful Painkiller, Bulletstorm is…

Snake Pass (Switch) Review – A Right Charmer

If someone told me that Snake Pass was a remake of an obscure PS1 game that was only released in Azerbaijan I would probably believe you. There is something decidedly old school about Sumo Digital’s charming puzzle platformer, and as a man with fond memories of the time when platformers ruled the planet, I have…

Death Squared (PS4) Review: Robot Roll Call

Death Squared SMG Studios’ debut outing on consoles is a solid and enjoyable puzzle/ platformer, and another great addition in the silly science experiment sub-genre of physics based puzzlers. Death Squared sees players solve a series of artificial intelligence experiments as part of a group of four cuboid robots under the supervision of David; a…

torment review

Torment: Tides of Numenera (PS4) Review

Torment: Tides of Numenera feels like a classic RPG from the late 90s. It’s a literary game replete with descriptive text and weighty, philosophical themes. inExile’s latest, doesn’t trade in flashy graphics and gimmickry. No Torment; Tides of Numenera is a game of substance. A vast, open-ended isometric RPG that tells a twisting apocalyptic tale…

Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin (PSVR) Review

It’s hard to believe that Psychonauts, is almost 12. Double Fine’s endearing psychic-powered platformer has been in the limbic system of gamers ever since, not only because it has seen numerous ports and re-releases, (hitting the PS4 only a couple months ago), and also that, finally, thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign a full-blown sequel…

Sniper Elite 4 (PS4) Review – Good Eye Sniper

I’m starting to feel a little bit worried about my state of mind. You see, when I reviewed Sniper Elite 3 way back in 2014, I couldn’t help but feel sorry for the German officer I accidentally castrated with .30 calibre bullet. This may have had something to do with the fact that I could…

Yakuza 0 (PS4) Review – The Shenmue and Mary Chain

If you think that Yakuza is just Japanese GTA, I hate to disappoint you but you are wrong Sunshine. Yes, both are open world games about the criminal underbelly of fictionalised recreations of real-life cities, GTA does America (And hopefully one day they’ll do the UK again) and Yakuza Japan, (Tokyo and Osaka to be…
