Samurai Riot Review

Posted on by
Remember the days of a side-scrolling beat-em-up where you are challenged to continue, fight some awesome bosses, and includes a great story? To be honest, not many included all these, but most earn a tick. Samurai Riot has now been released on Steam and it does tick all those boxes. Gameplay I have been enjoying nostalgia lately, remembering old games Continue Reading...

XCOM2 War Of The Chosen Review

Posted on by
Xcom 2 returns with an expansion that changes up the game and introduces far more foes than friends. The Chosen exist to hunt you down, slow you, letting the Elders complete the Avatar project.

As another year rolls around on the sporting calendar, as does the annual release of every sports franchise known to man.

Capcom is back at it again in the ring with Marvel. It has been roughly over 6 years since we were graced with the beauty of a fighting game that was Marvel vs Capcom 3.

Knack 2 PlayStation 4 Review

Posted on by
I like the idea of Knack, a character that can grow in size by collecting various relics to become a force to be reckoned with.  It’s different to most action platformer games out there, yet still feels like a challenge in some parts.  However, does Knack 2 improve over the shortcomings of the first title, or is it more of Continue Reading...

Project Cars 2 Review

Posted on by
Two years ago, Project Cars came screeching into our games libraries, arriving with critical appeal and reasonable fanfare. It was an excellent representation of motorsport, an unrelenting simulation that focused on precision driving which was not for everyone, but heavenly for simulation fans. Slightly Mad Studios poured years of passion and experience into Project Cars and it showed, with lovely Continue Reading...

F1 2017 Review

Posted on by
F1 is back again for 2017 from developer Codemasters. Has it dramatically changed for the better, like last year’s version over its 2015 entry or have we been given more of the same?

Destiny 2 Review

Posted on by
Bungie returns with their own universe, Destiny. While a massive improvement from the first vanilla release, there’s still areas to improve. Those are far outnumbered by the improvements they’ve made.  There’s plenty to keep you busy, exploring, and fighting. While still early days, there’s enough here to keep you busy.

Conan Exiles Review

Posted on by
Conan the Barbarian, it is the movie that put Arnold Schwarzenegger on the Hollywood map, and a film that rests firmly in my childhood memories. Yes, I watched it as a youngster, the violence, the nudity, I was punching well above my years but the memories are fond. Fast forward 25 years (wow, really) and we now see the Conan Continue Reading...
