Minecraft: Story Mode (PS4) Review – Never Say Die

Telltale’s Minecraft: Story Mode, is a curious concept to say the least, taking Mojang’s wildly popular blocky sandbox and turning it into an adventure game in a similar vein to Tales From the Borderlands and The Walking Dead. Initially, I wondered how this would even work.  Minecraft never had any kind of fixed narrative, instead…

No Time to Explain (PS4) Review – Time Warp

No Time To Explain opens with a guy happily gyrating in front of his TV (possibly doing the Time Warp), then out of nowhere, his future-self teleports into the room with a dire warning “There’s no time to explain…”. Suddenly, the side of the house is torn away and his future self is dragged off kicking and…

Unepic (PS4) Review – Dungeons & Drunkards

Initially released back on the PC in 2011, before subsequently being released on WiiU and Xbox One, Unepic has finally made it’s way to PS4 and Vita (complete with cross play and cross save). The premise will be instantly familiar to anyone who watched the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon as a kid; in other words…

Hyrule Warriors Legends review

Hyrule Warriors Legends (N3DS) Review – Zelda All-Stars

Hyrule Warriors on WiiU gave the Warriors series the shot in the arm that it desperately needed. Although the main series had begun to feel a little samey, somehow, taking the series’ slap happy core gameplay and mixing it with The Legend of Zelda’s characters, lore and a dash of gameplay, has resulted in the…

Pokkén Tournament Review – Eye of the Raikou

Ever since playing Pokémon Blue all those many moons ago, I have always hoped one day we would get a proper fighting game spin off. Sure, the likes of Pokémon Stadium and Pokémon Colosseum gave you Pokémon battling in 3D, but they’re basically prettied up versions of the main series’ turn based battles without the…

Dark Souls III (PS4) Review: True Colours

Namco have been on a roll with their music choices in trailers recently. Last year, we were treated to Ben Howard’s ‘Oats in the Water‘ in the run up to The Witcher 3, and with Dark Souls III, we were treated to a haunting cover of Cyndy Lauper’s ‘True Colours‘ in the Shadows Ahead trailer. As…

Catlateral Damage (PS4) Review – Feline Good?

Cats are dicks. Everyone knows this.  They’re destructive, spiteful little bastards that’ll happily tear your house apart if left alone, and piss on the remains.  We’ve all seen documented evidence on youtube.  Knocking stuff off tables and shelves for shits and giggles. Well, Catlateral Damage is basically the video game adaptation of those videos. It’s also…

stella glow review

Stella Glow Review – Swansong

Stella Glow is one of the most compelling SRPGs on 3DS, and a fitting swansong for Japanese developer Imageepoch, who sadly filed for bankruptcy shortly after the game’s completion. Though not directly tied to the studio’s previous titles (making the news all the sadder since this could have been the start of a very fine…

Epistory – Typing adventure (PC) review: E(pi)strogen

When most of us think of typing games, we tend to think back to childhood.  I’m sure you can picture the scene easily enough, yourself.  It’s getting into the last days of June, with the summer sun mingling with the mirthful cries of kids at play just outside the window.  But you’re stuck inside, with…
