Gears of War sits comfortably towards the upper echelon of my all-time favourite game series. After being there from the very beginning with the first title back in 2006 all the way through to Judgement, there’s something about seeing The Crimson Omen logo once more that gets the blood pumping. To lead into playing Gears 5 I finally found the […]
Ultimate Alliance is somehow a series I have never played before now, which is strange considering my affinity for all things Marvel. When Marvel Ultimate Alliance the 3rd was announced at The Game Awards last year, I rejoiced and revelled at the thought of being able to jump in the series finally and beat the not so holy hell out […]
Fire Emblem is a series that dates back all the way to 1990 on Famicom, with Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, bit of a mouthful for a game title I know. It’s important to recognise where it all started especially when the first in the series has been credited with popularising the tactical RPG genre, something that I’m […]
ROCKFISH Games is comprised of a team that for the most part has been together for ten plus years primarily on mobile titles, Everspace is their first venture into the PC and Console territory. The single-player rogue-like space shooter looks to cement the developers place in the market and perhaps provide a great first impression. But is it all space […]
New World Interactive hit the scene in terms of developing games in 2014 with Insurgency, a multiplayer tactical based first-person shooter, it was received with generally good reviews and caters to the more hardcore of players that thrive on difficult, no nonsense gameplay. Sandstorm seeks to replicate the formula and deliver the same tough fast-paced action as before but hopefully […]
tinyBuild has done a great job in building its portfolio over the past five years with many titles being well received such as Mr. Shifty, The Final Station and Party Hard 2. There are other games however that haven’t exactly shone bright. Hello Neighbor released last year for the first time yet before that is when it received most of […]
Battlefield can often be referred to as the rival of Call of Duty, or at least that’s how many gamers see it, you’re either a Call of Duty player, or a Battlefield player etc. I love both series dearly and oppose the idea that they are in direct competition, in the shooter space sure, but they are both a different […]
Fallout is one of the most anticipated and beloved franchises over the past decade and serves as one of the major staples in Bethesda’s offerings to us, the gamer. It comes as no surprise still however that the announcement of Fallout 76 was met with mixed responses, an always online, multiplayer game strays from the typical experience we have usually […]
Hitman is one of the most recognisable franchises in gaming today and has transcended the entertainment medium by jumping over into the movie world. It’s no surprise that another title in the series was on the way thanks to the success IO Interactive saw with the 2016 game. Since then, IO have parted with Square Enix and managed to keep […]
Touhou Project has not always had the opportunity to show its best face in the west. The bullet hell shoot-’em-up line that established the series’ characters and world is fantastic, but obscure. The titles that get the most attention and exposure are localized doujin games belonging to different genres. This means people are plopped into sub-par titles, like Touhou Kobuto V, or […]
The Banner Saga first released in early 2014 for Windows and Mobile, the fantasy tactical RPG that fast became a cult hit amongst gamers. Stoic Studio and Versus Evil have since brought it to consoles and much recently released it on the Nintendo Switch, so more can play and witness what The Banner Saga has to offer. Shall we call […]
Shoutout to Rhys for being awarded the Friendly-Fire King of Earthfall 2018.
So here we are with another iteration to the Far Cry franchise but this time with a twist from it’s original exotic far away places, Far cry 5 is the same experience you come to expect from the franchise only this time it has a twist, that twist is its set in a local that is far more relatable.
The required pace needed is that of geriatric Hamster towing a crate of avocado mash with pesto and bacon bits (I’m hungry again).
The Spectrum Retreat is a captivating narrative-driven puzzler developed by Dan Smith Studios. This challenging, first-person game is set in the near future, your job is to manipulate your way to the truth. It opens with you being woken up by a courtesy call at your door. Once you answer it you’ll be greeted by a slenderman-ish robot servant reminding you […]
As LEGO games have proved in the past they are the perfect palette cleanser between those big releases, that offer something different in terms of aesthetics, gameplay mechanics and are packed with fun moments. The Incredibles or even Disney and Pixar may just be one the most ideal names and brands out there to put with this type of game. […]
