Lootcrate review: January 2015 “Rewind”

  It’s time again for lootcrate, and that means it’s time once again for our less-than-intrepid looters Fantaesque and Arkworthy to tear into a small box of toys and complain rigorously about them.  This month’s theme is “rewind”, and promises to be either filled with retro-themed goodies, or an old VHS tape that someone has,…

WASDuk Review: WWE Immortals

When WB, DC, and NetherRealm teamed up to unleash the mobile version of Injustice, they hit the ground running and were wildly successful. Is it any wonder that NetherRealm has now joined forces with the superstars of the WWE in an attempt to duplicate the same fortune? And, let’s just emphasize that point: WWE Immortals is simply a…

Fluster Cluckers

Fluster Cluck Review: Microwave Meal for Four

The hardest reviews to write are those for games that are completely unremarkable. They’re not good, they’re not bad. They’re just bland. And it’s into this category that Loot game’s Fluster Cluck falls. The premise is probably the most interesting thing about the game. You work for Chikken Corp. an intergalactic fast food conglomerate that…

Lone Survivor: Directors Cut (WiiU) Review

Alone in a dingy run down flat, at the top of an aging, poorly designed edifice. The electricity was shut off days ago. The cooker’s bust and there’s a legion of flesh eating mutants roaming the halls waiting to consume your flesh and maybe even desecrate your corpse. Each day is a bleak, soul-destroying and…

Destiny Review: Digital Marmite

So this review’s a little late.  Okay, that’s an understatement.  It’s really bloody late to the point of being almost completely redundant. If you haven’t heard of Destiny, already read one of millions of other reviews, impressions and the usual rantings and ravings in comments sections (or even played the game) then you’ve probably been…

Metro Redux Review: The Angels have Gone

I don’t think there could be a worse fate than being forced to spend the rest of my life living in a tube station. If it were the London Underground at least it would probably be a relatively peaceful existence akin to living in a poorly ventilated monastery that had taken a vow of silence.…

The Swapper Review: Where is My Mind?

Great science fiction is by its very nature a work of philosophical discourse and The Swapper is no different, venturing into the murky waters of metaphysical discourse by pitting a hero whose actions are governed by the Aristotelian principles of matter and form against an unmoving enemy that embodies the principles of Descartes 2nd meditation.…

Pure Pool (PS4) Review: Bar Room Blitz

Pure Pool is one of the most realistic looking games of digital spots and stripes, sorry 8-ball, I’ve ever played. It looks superb, nigh on photo realistic. From the reflection of the surroundings on the balls and the veneer of the wood on the table, down to the texture of the felt that looks like…

Magic 2015 Review: Curse of the Microtransaction

The first thing Magic 2015 asks you is how much experience you have with Magic: The Gathering, having reviewed last year’s edition of the game, I said a bit, hoping to avoid any tutorials and have the game go easy on me, The game’s response? Tough shit! I don’t care if you created Magic: The…

The-Wolf-Among-Us

The Wolf Among Us Review: Who’s Afraid of Bigby Wolf?

Just a little note before I get into the review proper, This review contains spoilers after the first episode because it’s almost impossible to be candid about the whole plot of an episodic series.  As such, I wouldn’t eccommend reading past the next episode you were planning on playing. Now that’s out of the way,…
