Slash Dash – Review

Slash Dash – Review

Ninjas are the epitome of cool warriors. Real Ninjas, though, not the LEGO Cool Ninjas. I grew up with a huge fascination on these Japanese assassins and the martial arts, and swords of course, held a great mystery for me during my childhood. I fell in love with the old films such as Enter the Dragon and American Ninja (I know it’s pure chees... Read More »

Tachyon Project – Review

Tachyon Project – Review

When it comes to reviewing twin-stick shooters for the site, recent luck has not been on my side. Budget title, Sixty Second Shooter, tried to do a little something different with the genre by zooming in a little on the action and introducing the idea of actual physical levels to take on, but the execution left a lot to be desired. Even more egregi... Read More »

The Fall – Review

The Fall – Review

Being a fan of puzzle games, mostly because I feel like a genius when I figure out a complex puzzle, I was intrigued by The Fall. I felt I needed to finish this so I could add it to my list of puzzle games bested! The Fall was developed by Over The Moon Games and originally released in 2014 on Steam, GOG, The Humble store and the Wii U, it has rece... Read More »

Dying Light – The Following – Preview

It’s over two years since Techland went solo from their Dead Island franchise and found a new home with publisher Warner Bros. The result was last years release, Dying Light, which was a very familiar game if you’d played any of their former franchise. But with a focus on movement and parkour that freed up the constraints in the open wo... Read More »

I have sunk what probably seems like a unworldly amount of time in to the mobile game versions of Ticket to Ride and Small World, and probably quite a lot of time playing the board games themselves as well. So when I was asked to go and check out a card game at Gamescom, I was a little bit reticent because I already had my perfect games and I proba... Read More »

Constructor HD – Preview

Back in 1997, a game was released by Acclaim on MS DOS and then ported to Playstation in 1998. It was a very difficult game, which took on a life of its own with a dedicated following that enjoyed its sense of humour, its challenge and, probably most importantly, its playability. This game was Constructor, developed by System 3 and it was one of th... Read More »

Mafia 3 – Preview

The year is 1968. The Vietnam war has been raging for over ten years but the American public have begun to protest against the reality of the violent images dominating the headlines. President Lyndon B. Johnson declares he will not go for re-election after assuming the Presidency following the assassination of John F. Kennedy, which then sees the e... Read More »

Rory McIlroy PGA Tour – Review

Rory McIlroy PGA Tour – Review

Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated; it satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is at the same time rewarding and maddening – and it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented. Arnold Palmer said that. It must be said that this quote came from a world before Rory McIlroy PGA Tour Golf came to u... Read More »

All The Best Game Music Is On SoundCloud

All The Best Game Music Is On SoundCloud

You know this probably sounds like a self explanatory title, but if you haven’t ever heard of SoundCloud it is a streaming music site that is used by a lot of unsigned bands and DJ’s/Composers to showcase their talents. Those can be original songs, remixes, podcasts and anything in between. But it’s also home to a lot of excellent... Read More »

Gearbox is at it again. No, it really is. Borderlands may well have been setting the bar for co-op shoot and loot FPS games, but their sights have now been set on something much more team focused and something much more competitive, despite the inclusion of a story mode. Battleborn is the studio’s latest attempt to look at the competitive sce... Read More »

LEGO Dimensions – Preview

So it’s no secret that I’ve been a tad critical of the LEGO games as of late. I’ve found that maybe the formula had gotten a little stale and that, whilst nostalgia of the title kept my interest, they’d become a bit repetitive. Whilst I was at Gamescom, LEGO Dimensions proved me utterly wrong. We all know and have heard the ... Read More »

PES 2016 – Preview

PES 2016 – Preview

Every year it’s the same – A few promises of new excellence and a vain hope that this year will be better than last. It all sounds like lyrics to a 90s alt-rock song or a cringingly created poem for TV montages, but it is a fair and accurate representation of how fans of football games feel every August when we wait and see how FIFA and...

Football is dead. Long live MEGAFOOTBALL!

Football is dead. Long live MEGAFOOTBALL!

The European soccer season is slowly lurching back into action and, in video game circles, that means one thing – first footage of the next iterations of FIFA and PES has been released. As both titles rapidly approach their release date, we can now make some fairly solid statements. We’ll undoubtedly get the two best looking soccer games of all tim... Read More »

Mad Max – Preview

I didn’t want Mad Max to start with. I didn’t ask for it, and I certainly didn’t really care too much about what the gameplay would be like. Fair enough, there was a movie coming that looked interesting but I just imagined a dead 80s franchise being milked while it became relevant again. Then I played Mad Max and I soon realised this could be the o... Read More »

Gamescom 2015 – Day One

It’s been an interesting 24 hours here in Cologne. Europe’s premier games conference and industry trade fair is buzzing with people. Today is the calm before the storm where industry and press get to see some things before the peoples of Europe come and wreak absolute carnage. How much carnage? Well the organisers are expecting around 4... Read More »

Welcome to Drink’n Games! A semi-regular-ish feature wherein our intrepid American correspondent and all around snobby jerk Tim tries pairing a beer he’s never tried with a game he loves, under a set of completely arbitrary rules, and records the results for both scientific study and the entertainment of YOU, our beloved reader!

Batman Arkham Knight – Review

Batman Arkham Knight – Review

Riddle me this, Chiropetra loving friends: What ever shall we do when the Arkham game ends? This really is the end according to developer Rocksteady. Their trilogy (Origins was done by a different studio so it technically doesn’t count) has seen the most critically acclaimed Batman iteration since the Nolan movies, brought expertly to life with an ...

F1 2015 – Review

Formula One is the pinnacle of Motorsport. There is no denying, despite the rise in popularity of endurance racing, MOTO GP, rally and other disciplines, as well as the introduction of Formula E, that Formula One is still at the cutting edge of aerodynamics, engineering and now, hybrid racing. We’re almost two years in to the V6 Turbo kinetic... Read More »

Tour de France 2015 – Review

There is a strange allure I have with licensed sports games. I just want to play them, just to see what they’re like. The more common sense person in me says “Don’t be a dick, Sean, that game is £40 and you’ll play it for a week maximum.” It’s this reason why I owned the TNA Impact game, the Rugby League games ba...

Returning to Tamriel – The Elder Scrolls Online

Returning to Tamriel – The Elder Scrolls Online

Returning to Tamriel brought some mixed emotions to me. Originally, I was going to review The Elder Scrolls Online again, a year after I last did this with its original release on PC, with it’s new Tamriel Unlimited moniker. Surely enough had changed and moved in that year on that I could go back and almost revise my review, I thought, but as...
