140 (PS4) Review – Minimalism 101

The easiest way to describe Jeppe Carlson’s 140 is as a minimalist rhythm-based platformer. But, in many ways, it’s the gaming equivalent of a hearing test. All of the game’s hazards, platforms and puzzles are directly linked to the beat of its electronic soundtrack, and therefore successfully traversing each level and beating the boss at the…

Metroid Prime: Federation Force Review – Galaxy Quest

Let’s get this out of the way, Federation Force is not a Metroid game in the traditional sense. Yes, it carries the Metroid Prime name, and it’s set in the same universe (after the events of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption in fact), but there is no large, slowly-unfolding map to explore, no searching for suit…

WASDuk Review: Morgan

Morgan kicks off with video footage of the title character (Anya Taylor-Joy; see her in the amazing The VVitch if you haven’t already) springing across a table, fork in hand, to take out the eye of Dr. Kathy Grieff (Jennifer Jason Leigh). Morgan isn’t human, her DNA and cells have been spliced with bio-mechanical parts created by a group of…

Hue (PS4) Review – It’s Spelled C-O-L-O-U-R

The big headed child in scary world trope is so prevalent now it may as well be a genre of its own. Ever since Braid and Limbo hit the scene we’ve been inundated with numerous malformed children puzzling and platforming their way through all manner of places kids really shouldn’t be, with incredibly mixed results.…

King of Fighters XIV (PS4) Review – Hail to the King!

For many, King of Fighters XIII was certainly one of the series’ high points, and, although King of Fighters XIV doesn’t quite hit the highs of it’s predecessor it is still a complex and rewarding fighter and another solid entry in SNK’s long running fightfest. For those of you unfamiliar with King of Fighters, let…

Armikrog (PS4) Review: Space Oddity

Pitched as a spiritual successor to the cult 90s point and click game The Neverhood. Armikrog was released last year on PC after a successful kickstarter campaign. Originally intended to release at the same time, the game has finally come to consoles almost a year later. But was it worth the wait?    Armikrog is…

Worms WMD (PS4) Review: Armageddon 2.0

I’m just going to lay my cards on the table, so that we can both get on with our lives and you can get to playing Worms W.M.D. If you’re a long-time fan, still waiting for a game that finally tops, or is at least as good as Amageddon. It’s here. Worms W.M.D is that…
