Midnight Deluxe PSVita/PS4 | Review

I won’t keep you too long here with this review.

Burnout Paradise – Remastered | Review

Burnout Paradise – Remastered | Review

It's always difficult to review remastered games, especially in the case of Burnout Paradise, a game which I put so much time into that I probably wore out a few controllers along the way. So what better way to review the remaster than to capture the excitement I had the…read more >

Kingdom Come: Deliverance – PS4 | Review

Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a game which flew well under my radar. Coming from a lesser known developer in Warhorse Studios, which Kickstarted the title back in 2014 and was funded to the tune of £1.1 million. It’s a title I, most likely at the time, thought would be underwhelming…read more >
Past Cure – Xbox One | Review

Past Cure – Xbox One | Review

Past Cure is a bizarre mishmash of a game. It’s part psychological thriller, part shooter and part puzzler too. It doesn’t really know what it is or what it wants to be, which is evident in the fact that each chapter feels like a different game from the last. Things start…read more >

Ōkami HD – PS4 ǀ Review

Ōkami HD – PS4 ǀ Review

Okami HD is what you would call a unique game. Traditional Japanese culture influences the art-style, the story and just about every inch of the game’s world, Nippon. Nippon itself is a peaceful place to start with, but that peace is suddenly shattered by the forces of evil. It’s up…read more >
