Tower of Guns (PS4) Review: Run ‘n’ Gun

Being an old bastard, I often find myself pining for what I would call the glory days of the traditional FPS, a time when narrative and realism were not associated with the genre at all and when things weren’t all dark and gritty but bright, colourful and patently ridiculous. So whenever a game even hints…

Life is Strange Review in Progress (ep 1-2)

If you’ve read my previous reviews of other episodic games you’ll probably know the rules by now. Each episode will get its own micro review and each is written based on the assumption that you’ve probably played the previous entry in the series, and therefore won’t mind some plot points and spoilers that make reviewing…

Mario Party 10 Review (WiiU): Booze Cruise

Mario Party is one of those game series that, like Rock Band, is best played accompanied with several friends and several bottles of something cheeky. The clue is in the title: It’s a party. It isn’t a game you’re likely to play all alone, in your pants, at two in the afternoon.  Not unless you’re reviewing it…

The Fall (WiiU) Review: Ghost in the Shell

On the surface at least, Over the Moon’s The Fall looks very much like Facepalm Games’ The Swapper that came to the WiiU last November, in that it stars a lone astronaut exploring a desolate planet. Like The Swapper it also asks many deeply philosophical questions about the nature of the self, though it attacks the…

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number Review

Hotline Miami is without a doubt one of the most fucked up games I’ve ever played, but also one of the best. Sitting alongside Manhunt, Postal, and to a lesser extent, I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream as the closest thing we, in the gaming world, will ever see to a full blown…

OlliOlli (WiiU) Review: Skate or Die!

Skateboarding is hard. As a teen, I spent many hours rolling around on the ground, clutching at my knees and my groin after attempting a kickflip and finding out the hard way that the board  had other ideas. In short: I’m shit at skateboarding. Thankfully, Roll7 the team behind OlliOlli, understands that skateboarding is hard. Despite having more…

PureLove

Oh look out, fanta’s been at the otome games again. It’s been a while since I reviewed one of these, and after the absolute horror that was Bidding For Love, who could blame me? By that I don’t mean it was a bad game, but when the aim of the game is for you to…

WASDuk Reviews Decay: The Mare (PC Steam)

It’s 2005, and I’ve just finished watching Syriana, starring George Clooney and some guy named Matt Damon. The movie is excellent, a mixed bag of thrilling treats that drew shocks about the powerlessness of governments once horror scenarios wedge their way into normal life. However, many panned the flick for being “too smart”. The same may be…
