ELEX (PC) Review: It Gets Better After Season 3

Okay so. We’ve all had those folks that we know, who try and sell us on a TV show, or a manga, or something similar. And they warn you that it gets better, you know – once you get through the troublesome first season or first eight chapters or whatever. Alright, you might say. Can…

WASDuk Review: Blade Runner 2049

Whether or not you bothered with the original 1982 Blade Runner is important. If you watched the theatrical release, you got the ending where Harrison Ford’s Rick Deckard ran off with Rachel. However, the theatrical release, much to everyone’s disappointment, had edited in cut scenes from Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining where it is implied that…

WASDuk Review: Cult of Chucky

Let’s not pretend that the Child’s Play franchise is any good. The original trilogy had one horror classic in its debut but the messes that are Child’s Play 2 and Child’s Play 3 drove a hard point home, if nothing else: Chucky is a good idea and horror fans love the little possessed doll but…

WASDuk Review: Houses That October Built 2

There is always going to be a mix of good and bad things that arise from the independent cinema. Yes, there will be more jobs for actors and directors and they’ll all try to cash in on insta-video or streaming services. In contrast, you’ll also get niche films with no real use or with any…

Civ 6, Amanitore and the Nubian Warrior Queens

Developer Firaxis has revealed that the next nation to be added to the Civilization VI roster is *fanfare* Nubia. The latest addition is based around production bonuses, which fits with their chosen leader; Queen (or rather,Kandake) Amanitore. Of course, where a little-known historical woman appears in video games, Fanta_esque is sure to follow. So join me…

Nex Machina (PS4) Review – Neon Dream

The minds behind Resogun and Smash T.V. have made a beautiful twin-stick shooter dream child and named it Nex Machnica. It combines the best of each of those games and distills them into one of the best bullet hell arcade experiences I’ve played. From the haunting 8-bit style splash screen featuring the main antagonist greeting…

Rime (PC) Review – A Boy and His Fox

Rime opens with a boy washed ashore on a mysterious island. Guided by a companion fox, players travel through an emotionally provoking tale set in four beautifully illustrated environments. The artistic style that Tequila Works employs is more akin to living water color than a video game, and the environments take advantage of this art…

GetEven review

Get Even (PS4) Review: Bohemian Rhapsody

Get Even is one of those games that is a bugger to review; not because it isn’t any good. Not at all. In fact, the Farm 51’s walking-simulator- in-a- first-person- shooter’s-clothing is one of 2017’s best surprises and bound for cult classic status. No it’s a bugger to review because the narrative features so many…

WASDuk Review: 7 Witches

7 Witches came to our attention after getting positive feedback from the Creepypasta crowd. And what’s the risk with this weird, little bunch that pride themselves on being so depressed that each thinks she or he may be a demon? Discovering another Slender Man hoax that has gone too far, developing utter devotion to that…

WASDuk Review: Injustice 2 Mobile/iOS

The mobile version of Injustice 2 launched in the Philippines a few months ago, but it is now legally available everywhere. With the mobile US launch, and the console launch being next week, DC and NetherRealms fans are eager to play the follow-up to, really, what was the only semi-decent game based on DC characters.…

Zheros (PS4) Review: Basic Brawling

Initially released on PC and Xbox One in 2016, Rimlight’s cartoony side scrolling beat ‘em up Zheros has finally made its way to the PS4 along with the game’s new DLC pack – The Forgotten Land (which you have to buy separately). Zheros is a basic brawler, full of colourful characters, with a simple plot…
