Knowledge is Power – PS4 PlayLink ǀ Review

Following the success of Wish Studios’ first PlayLink game, That’s You, the studio has delivered another smartphone-controlled board game, Knowledge is Power, just in time for Christmas. Each participating player will have to download the Knowledge is Power app to their phone or tablet. This saves you having to purchase multiple Dual Shock 4’s just so you and your friends can indulge in the quiz, and it also keeps your answers secret. After snapping a selfie and creating an avatar of your likeness (even this bit is tremendous fun) you’ll be teleported to the base of the Pyramid of Knowledge.…read more >
‘You Died’ A Ranking of all the Bloodborne DLC Bosses.

‘You Died’ A Ranking of all the Bloodborne DLC Bosses.

After ranking all of the Bloodborne main game bosses and the Chalice Dungeon bosses, it's time for my last (probably...) Bloodborne ranking - The DLC bosses! When it came to thrashing out this ranking, I had a lot of issues regarding the order. This is because the bosses in the DLC are equally difficult to slay. One things for sure though, all these big bads are pretty darn horrible in their own special way. Let's talk about why.   5- Living Failures With Bloodborne having already dabbled with boss fights against more than one enemy in the main game, it…read more >

‘You Died’ A Ranking of all the Bloodborne Chalice Bosses Part Two.

Last week I talked about the Bloodborne bosses in the dreaded Chalice Dungeons I had the least problems with. This week, I’ve finally psyched myself up enough to discuss what I think are the hardest ten bosses in the Chalice Dungeons. Take a deep breath, and let’s begin…   10-  Ebrietas Daughter of the Cosmos – Great Isz Chalice (Layer Three) Ebrietas is notorious for causing players stress and strife in the Upper Cathedral Ward so her presence in the Chalice dungeon wasn’t well received. Ebrietas was an only a problem for me once her arcane attacks were introduced during…read more >

‘You Died’ A Ranking of all the Bloodborne Chalice Bosses Part One.

Following on from my Bloodborne main game boss ranking it’s time to consider and rank the notoriously difficult Chalice Dungeon bosses. As most of you still reading this will know, accessing the Chalice Dungeons is optional and therefore so is battling the bosses which reside in them. It’s also common knowledge that the chalice dungeons are very tricky and largely disliked within the Bloodborne community. But that’s not going to stop us, right?!... So, in order of difficulty, easiest to hardest, here they come.   20 – Maneater Boar – Hindertomb Chalice (Layer One) Just like its Yharnam counterpart the…read more >

Little Nightmares ‘The Hideaway’ DLC – PS4 │ Review

After months of worrying about the fate of the Runaway kid we’re finally reunited with our messy-haired protagonist in second DLC from Secrets of the Maw: The Hideaway. Having battled off Granny in the previous DLC the Runaway Kid was eventually caught by the Janitor and the opening scenes of The Hideaway are focused on regaining your freedom. Falling out of the frying pan (almost literally) and into the fiery engine room of the Maw, the Runaway kid finds that down here he is once again not alone. The Hideaway is less linear than other parts of the game and…read more >

Oure – PS4 | Review

Oure was Paris Games Week surprise PS4 fantasy game. Developed by Heavy Spectrum, the footage showcased in Paris intrigued and the announcement that the game would be released only a few hours later was a marketing masterstroke. Oure’s story unfolds in a world ravaged by dusk and devoid of hope. A young girl who dreams of soaring above the clouds and gliding alongside mighty titans (ancient sky creatures tasked with keeping peace over the world below) is mysteriously gifted with the power to transform into a flying dragon and tasked with trying to bring an end to this time of…read more >

Aer: Memories of Old – PS4 ǀ Review

Aer: Memories of Old is essentially a love letter to The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, utilising the same formula which made the sixteenth edition to the Zelda franchise so successful. On a cluster of islands floating in the sky we meet our protagonist, Auk, a shape shifter who can transform into a bird to traverse the various shrines and temples scattered amongst the clouds. The opening scenes see Auk (no doubt named after the diving seabird) setting off on a pilgrimage to the Land of The Gods. The entire world laid before Auk is built with a beautiful minimalistic…read more >

‘You Died’ A Ranking of all the Bloodborne Bosses Part Two

In my last post, 'You Died Part One', I talked about some of the easiest Bloodborne bosses I’d faced on my first run through of the game. Now it’s time to talk about the hardest ones, the big bads that had me throwing my controller across the room and swearing angrily at the screen! Specifically, what follows is a countdown from the seventh hardest to the single most difficult in my first play through of the game.   7- Mergo's Wet Nurse The design of Mergo's Wet Nurse is incredible. She wields six scythes with such flawless and flowing movement…read more >

‘You Died’ A Ranking of all the Bloodborne Bosses Part One

Bloodborne is notorious for being very, very hard. The gruelling fifty hours it takes to free Yharnam from the grips of blood lust are filled with nightmarish enemies and, much worse, super-challenging bosses. Having beaten Bloodborne six times I’ve had my fair share of frustrating battles with each of these foes. However, the following boss ranking list is based on my very first playthrough of the game and represents my personal experience with each of the bosses and my particular struggles in facing them.   17- The Witches of Hemwick The Witches of Hemwick is the first boss that I…read more >

Hob – PS4 ǀ Review

There’s an awful lot of depth to Runic Games’ action adventure indie game, Hob. Exploration of the huge steampunk-inspired world is exceptionally rewarding: secret rooms can be discovered, shortcuts can be accessed and mysterious green orbs hide in machines and tiny crevices which allow you to level up. Our protagonist, a curious and unnamed hooded figure, awakens in a cave and is freed into the mesmerising world by a robot, seemingly our one companion. The sweet opening of Hob takes a drastic turn when a moment’s distraction leads to our hooded protagonist being poisoned and then suffering a necessary amputation…read more >
