Pop-Up Pilgrims PlayStation VR Review

Posted on by
When people think of VR gaming they instantly presume first person titles that attempt to deliver a realistic setting and concentrating on immersion. It is true, most of the titles available are of this ilk, but every so often a new concept pops up. I have played a few 3rd person games now and found that the quality has been Continue Reading...

Subnautica PC Review

Posted on by
Planet 4546B could be an idyllic if it wasn’t for a few things, Reaper Leviathans, enforcement batteries and the assorted things trying to eat you. You’ll spend your time under the water, scavenging, hunting, building and travelling. Always looking for the next thing and getting distracted on the way, if you’re anything like me. Gameplay Subnautica is at its core, Continue Reading...

The Inpatient PlayStation VR Review

Posted on by
In 2015 Supermassive Games attempted, somewhat successfully, to change the way horror games are delivered. Until Dawn took a great cast of friends, put them into a typical horror scenario and blended exploration and interaction with a script and styling that merged film like quality with gameplay. It was met with positivity from both critics and gamers and led to Continue Reading...

Monster Hunter World Playstation 4 Review

Posted on by
The Monster Hunter games series has been extremely popular over the years and it was clear Monster Hunter World would break all boundaries that limited the scope of the earlier titles with the power of this generation’s consoles. This is my first time to the franchise and I’m curious how it presents to a newcomer as opposed to a veteran. Continue Reading...

Civilisation VI was a big step away from the previous entries, while being an improvement, refinement, enhancement. Just as this expansion is to Civilisation VI. New leaders, new features, new units, new wonders, all of them await you, if you’re lucky enough to be able to meet the requirements to unlock them.

The Fall Part 2: Unbound Xbox One Review

Posted on by
It’s strange to think that my review of The Fall was all the way back in August 2015. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised to hear that the story would continue in The Fall Part 2: Unbound from Over The Moon. Gameplay Firstly, if you have not played the first title, you need to do that first because there Continue Reading...

The Room Old Sins Review

Posted on by
The Room returns to the iPad with its next entry, Old Sins. Like before, simple motions are used to explore deeply complex, intricate and confusing environments. Puzzles await you, some simple, some requiring a complex series of actions and just the right perspective to solve. Everything that seems simple, isn’t. Everything that seems complex isn’t, once you’ve got the clues. Continue Reading...

Shadow of the Colossus PlayStation 4 Review

Posted on by
A colossal reimagining. 2005 may go down as one of my most memorable and favourable years in gaming. I was blessed with the presence of three incredible games, two of which kickstarted or defined a series. These three memorable titles included the action cult classic God of War, sim racing staple Gran Turismo 4, and a newcomer to the gaming Continue Reading...
