Party Hard (PS4) Review – How to be a Homicidal Bastard!

We’ve all been there. It’s 3am on a Sunday night.  You have to get up for work in three hours, and the inconsiderate gobshites next door are still in the middle of a party, with no end in sight. The paper-thin walls do nothing to stop the endless thump of awful dance music, the cackling…

Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse (PS4) Review – Keelhauled

I’m  a big fan of WayForward. Their beautiful remake of A Boy and His Blob is easily one of the finest games on the Wii (and now the PS4), while the work they did bringing Duck Tales flapping and quacking into the 21st Century is admirable.  However, despite being well known for their brilliant remasters, I always…

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…

Layers of Fear (PS4) Review: Waste of Paint

A good horror story knows how to get under your skin, and makes you think long and hard about it afterwards. What’s more, the more you think about it, the creepier it becomes. That’s the kind of tale that Layers of Fear tells; a first person psychological horror in a similar vein to the PT…

Dreii (PC) Review: With a Little Help From my Friends

Dreii is a collaborative puzzler where up to 3 players arrange blocks of various shapes so that they reach a glowing orb. This sounds simple (and it is, at first) but it quickly becomes apparent that some shapes have a mind of their own. Bring a few different environments and block types into the mix…

Rebel Galaxy Review (Xbox One) – Space Diamond in the Rough

Rebel Galaxy is a game of pretty drastic changes.  Beginning behind the wheel of a hulking space cruiser, speeding past star systems, carrying a hold-full of space junk and blaring salty country/rock tunes. Whether you’re picking up jobs and bounties from the various space stations scattered around the map, looting unsuspecting passersby, living the life…

Guns, Gore & Cannoli (PS4) Review: An Offer You Can’t Refuse

Crazy Monkey Studios’ Guns, Gore, and Cannoli is side-scrolling shooter, from the Metal Slug school: Tough, fair and thoroughly entertaining. If the idea of the classic Neo-Geo shooter crossed with the kind of hilarious narrative that Robert Rodriguez would be proud of. If the mob fighting legions of  zombies sounds like an offer you can’t refuse, then…

Is Tekken 7 coming to the Nintendo NX?

Bandai Namco have officially announced that Tekken 7 will be coming to ‘home systems’. Not the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One or even the PC, though all three platforms are probably a given, but home systems. Usually this level of ambiguity by a publisher usually means one thing.They’re not allowed to mention the platform it’s…

Blood Bowl II Review: Fantasy FOOTBALL!

I suppose it would be best to start with a disclaimer; if you’re looking for a spiritual successor to Mutant League Football, Blood Bowl 2 is not the game for you. Sadly, you will have to keep on waiting for that one. However, if you are looking for one of the best recreations of a classic table…
