Gaming Memories: Spider-Man Part One

Gaming Memories: Spider-Man Part One

Super hero games tend to be rather hit or miss. Some rise to the challenge and blow me away. Others fade into the distance a memory best forgotten. There’s one character though, which has been a part of the gaming world since I can remember. A character that has been recreated on the video screen hundreds of times with some titles that I will happi... Read More »

Interview – War For The Overworld

Interview – War For The Overworld

War For The Overworld is a new isometric, real time dungeon strategy game by Subterranean Games. A Kickstarter funded project, the game may seem like a very familiar one but this group of super fans are working to make a new game that is better than the one that drew them towards the project in the first place. Sean spoke with Josh Bishop, the CEO ... Read More »

The Graphics Conundrum – Opinion

The Graphics Conundrum – Opinion

I’ve noticed a lot recently that there seems to be a lot of stock put on a games graphics. I’ve seen people on Twitter and sometimes Facebook express their anger that a developer has dared to not make a game run at 60fps. Or there are times when people have made PC mods for games to make them “look better” or “look more realistic”, or sometim... Read More »

Pier Solar and the Great Architects – Review

Pier Solar and the Great Architects – Review

Pier Solar and the Great Architects has one of the more interesting backstories of anything released in the last few months. Starting out as a 2010 Sega Megadrive release by a homebrew community (no, really), an HD remaster found its way onto PS3, PS4, PC, Mac, Linux, Ouya, Wii U, Xbox One, Dreamcast, Xbox 360, Android (no, really) late last year b...

360 Retro Reload – The Darkness

360 Retro Reload – The Darkness

The Good - Interesting and decent story The Bad - Having to shoot out all the lights in a room can get boring Next up on my list is none other than the first person shooter The Darkness. Not to be mistaken with the band cause that could be awkward and the rest of this article would make no sense whatsoever. Can’t have any of you readers being confu... Read More »

Evolve – Review

Evolve – Review

Having played Evolve back at Gamescom, I had a few worries. Come the Alpha and the recent open beta, I still had them. Come release day, I still had them. The thing is, I’ve heard a lot about Evolve. A lot of people have talked to me quite passionately about how good it was and how excited they were for it. Yet whenever I combined those conversatio... Read More »

Remembering the Sega Mega Drive

Remembering the Sega Mega Drive

I know as a writer about games that I should avoid pinning my colours to any particular flag, especially in the current climate, but I’m declaring it here and now – I’ve always rooted for Sega. So, as you can imagine, I’ve been particularly saddened by recent events at the once-upon-a-time behemoth. In light of the announcement that they’ll b... Read More »

360 Retro Reload – Shadows of the Damned

360 Retro Reload – Shadows of the Damned

The Good – The comedy can be amusing and is a good way to break up the horror a bit The Bad – Lack of replayability other than to beat it at a higher difficulty Next up on my Retro Reload list is the psychological horror/comedy Shadow of the Damned. Who thought that those two genres could be mixed so well? One minute you’re laughing awa... Read More »

Rise of The Figures!

Rise of The Figures!

In 2011 Activision took a bold gamble by combining toys with video games in a totally new way. It also marked the return of Spyro The Dragon in Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure. The premise was a fairly simple one. Using NFC technology you would buy collectable figures and place the figure onto a platform, which when connected to your console would th... Read More »

How Video Games Tackle My Misanthropy

How Video Games Tackle My Misanthropy

The closest words I could find to describe myself in regards to this article was ‘misanthrope’ and ‘nihilistic’, and yet that’s still not entirely accurate. Technology has progressed to a level that can propagate genuine fear in the human psyche. Not the ‘50s sci-fi death robots or the ‘70s Bond movie machines-of-destruction fear, but the Phillip K...

Ultimate NES Remix 3DS

Ultimate NES Remix 3DS

Nintendo originally released the first of these games for digital download in December 2013 for the Wii U titled NES Remix, or Famicom Remix in Japan, with a sequel NES Remix 2, known as Famicom Remix 2, being released in April 2014. A further title was released, Ultimate NES Remix, for 3DS late last year which is the version I’m reviewing, a... Read More »

Resident Evil HD – Review

Resident Evil HD – Review

I know I’ve mentioned Doom a lot on this site before, but the game that scared me the second most was the original Resident Evil. I could barely play it myself, relying on an older cousin to show me what the game was actually like due to my crippling fear of literally everything in that game. I wasn’t able to play and finish it on my ow... Read More »

Saints Row 4 Re-Elected & Gat Out Of Hell – Review

Saints Row 4 Re-Elected & Gat Out Of Hell – Review

We here at TheGameJar have previously been very positive regarding 2013′s Saints Row 4, as well as previous Saints Row games. I personally however have never been in that bracket having never really experienced the franchise. I know, I’m a bad person but life, other games and just general laziness has kept me from the franchise before. ... Read More »

Project Cars – Preview

Project Cars – Preview

Project Cars is responsible for a first in my life, my first 4K gaming experience. In an era where open world driving games seem to be the more successful of the four wheeled genre, Project Cars has gone to a very traditional route. One that games like Gran Turismo has treaded and arguably worn out over many years. Photo-realism in both environment... Read More »

LEGO Annouce Dinosaurs and Superheros (Jurassic World)

LEGO Annouce Dinosaurs and Superheros (Jurassic World)

It’s not often we cover news, but this one was certainly too big for me to miss posting about. Warner Bros Interactive have announced the TT Games/LEGO line up for 2015. These include another Marvel tie in with LEGO: Marvel’s Avengers, new LEGO Ninjago game: Shadow of Ronin and iOS releases of The Lego Movie videogame and Lego Batman: B... Read More »

Skyforge Preview – Is 2015 a year of Russian Gaming?

Skyforge Preview – Is 2015 a year of Russian Gaming?

A few things come to my mind when you say Russian to me: Red October, The Dude’s favourite drink, and the orchestral cover of that crap Sting song that Charlie Brooker uses in every Yearly/Weekly Wipe. You might not think gaming is a synonymous word but it really is. From every WW2 shooter under the sun, to Catherine in every Civilization gam... Read More »

PES 2015 – Review

PES 2015 – Review

If you’re reading this, then I know exactly what you’re looking for. You’re looking for the answer. It’s the answer you’ve probably been looking for every year since around…2008? That was the year you could legitimately ask the question without being laughed out of the room. The question, of course, is which is better? FIFA or PES? Unless you... Read More »

Wii U: To Buy Or Not To Buy

Wii U: To Buy Or Not To Buy

Last year saw Sony beat the rest of the competition to the floor with the PS4, squashing them like bugs. Microsoft soon rallied back and has seen healthy figures in the last quarter thanks to some rather aggressive discounting. Yet to me there seems to be a dark horse, one that is slowly gaining popularity and seeing an increase in sales. For me th... Read More »

360 Retro Reload – Fairytale Fights

360 Retro Reload – Fairytale Fights

The Good - Amusing themed weapons The Bad - Extremely repetitive The second game I’ll be looking at as part of the 360 Retro Reload is the hack and slash adventure game Fairytale Fights. The game was developed by Playlogic Game Factory and released by Playlogic Entertainment for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 back in October 2009, so it’s a pretty ... Read More »

Most Anticipated Games Of 2015

Most Anticipated Games Of 2015

Another year has ended. A year full of games that surprised and fascinated us all. From big blockbusters to small indie games last year was full of diamonds in the rough. As well as the quality we also saw disappointment, games that promised us the world and yet failed to set us aflame with satisfaction. It was also a year where I stood more in the... Read More »
