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…

Yonder (PS4) Review: A Nice Place to Visit

Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles lands players in the role of a customized avatar in the land of Gemea. It is geographically diverse with myriad environmental weather patterns and organic life.

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…

NBA Playgrounds review for Nintendo Switch – Swish

Driving down court to the three point line, where you jump, fly through the air to the rim, and somersault off while slamming the ball through the hoop for a 4 point dunk; 2 for the dunk, 1 for a perfect shot, and 1 for executing from behind the arc.This scene encapsulates the NBA Playgrounds…

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…

TumbleSeed Review (Nintendo Switch) – On a Roll

Tumbleseed boasts a jaunty aesthetic paired with gameplay that is as hard as it is rewarding. Its challenge is largely due to the control’s steep learning curve and in no small part to the player’s task: save the Tumbleseed and his homeland. To do this, the Tumbleseed must scale the collapsing mountain that was once…

Fated: The Silent Oath (PSVR) Review – Highway to Hel

When PSVR launched back in October, Sony’s virtual reality headset had an impressive start. A large varied portfolio of titles with quality exclusives, and a simple set up made it a very tempting entry point into the wonderful world of VR gaming. Unfortunately, less than six months after the exceptional launch, games for Sony’s entry…

Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition (PS4) Review – …All Out of Gum

If you didn’t play Bulletstorm when it was first released way back in 2011, I’m disappointed but not surprised. It’s one of those game’s that deserves a spot along with Raven’s SIngulatiry on the ‘Best shooters of 360/PS3 era that no buggered played’ list. People Can Fly’s follow up to the wonderful Painkiller, Bulletstorm is…
