Those pesky Nazi's messing around with the occult and trying to make more powerful soldiers to win the war at any cost, what are they like? You think they would have learned from all that stuff with the ark of the covenant. Achtung Cthulhu Tactics is a turn-based strategy game,…read more >
Battlefield V – PS4 | Review

Battlefield V – PS4 | Review

Since the E3 launch trailer for Battlefield V, I have been looking forward to getting my hands on it. I have always enjoyed the Battlefield series as many others have, Hardline might have been seen as a low but even that story was great. So how does Battlefield V stand…read more >
Farming Simulator 2019 – PS4 | Review

Farming Simulator 2019 – PS4 | Review

I have played numerous farming games over the years and do have a little guilty pleasure when this genre is concerned, it's usually the cutesy type though and not the all-encompassing farming sim played in this review. Over many years I have played Harvest Moon, Rune Factory, Stardew Valley and…read more >
Runner 3 – PS4 | Review

Runner 3 – PS4 | Review

Rhythm games rarely see much in variety. For the longest time, we lived with a market that saw an influx of plastic instruments that crowded all of our living rooms. In fact, one might even say there were too many games. As an individual that faithfully purchased every Guitar Hero…read more >

Spyro Reignited Trilogy – PS4 | Review

It's finally time people, the time most of us have been patiently waiting for. The little purple dragon with attitude is back in all his updated and remastered glory. I will admit I only played the game briefly around a friend's house originally but even I can see the progress…read more >
Into The Breach – Nintendo Switch | Review

Into The Breach – Nintendo Switch | Review

Subset Games, developer of 2012’s indie darling “FTL” return with “Into The Breach”, a whole six years after. With impressive expectations, can lightning strike twice for the two-man team? “Into The Breach” is a difficult game to describe. It’s a turn-based strategy title, but also so much more than that.…read more >
The Forest – PS4 | Review

The Forest – PS4 | Review

I don’t really like the dark in video games, especially when the only thing stopping cannibals and mutants eating you alive is the smallest most inefficient axe you have ever seen. We seem to have quite the obsession over the last few years with survival and crafting games and this…read more >
Deracine – PSVR | Review

Deracine – PSVR | Review

Deracine has you playing as a magical faerie that exists between times like some ghost-like entity. You are able to take and give time, which basically means kill or revive items such as flowers or small animals, as well as time travel which is a key part of the story…read more >
Timber Tennis Versus – PS4 | Quickfire Review

Timber Tennis Versus – PS4 | Quickfire Review

Timber Tennis Versus is a delightfully simple tennis game with a kooky presentation and colourful visual style. Whilst it’s no Virtua Tennis, it never claims to be. In fact, the game seems to land somewhere between NES Tennis and Sega Superstars Tennis. With accessible, albeit basic gameplay similar to those…read more >
Moonlighter – Nintendo Switch | Review

Moonlighter – Nintendo Switch | Review

Moonlighter is more than just another RPG with pixelated graphics. It’s a top down isometric adventure with an enjoyable narrative paired with a driving and addictive plot point. This charming action game borrows elements from other highly enjoyable titles such as Stardew Valley, Zelda and at times even the elusive…read more >
The Shapeshifting Detective – PS4 | Review

The Shapeshifting Detective – PS4 | Review

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a shapeshifter? When I was a young lad, one of my favourite shows was the 90's X-Men cartoon. What wasn't there to love?! When asked who my favourite mutant is in the entire series, my answer has always been…read more >
Tetris Effect – PS4 | Review

Tetris Effect – PS4 | Review

The Granddaddy of all puzzle games has just been pulled into the 21'st century. Over the years there have been a few attempts to reinvent the Tetris formula with Puyo Puyo Tetris being the latest, and while sometimes it works, more often than not it's the base Tetris experience that…read more >
Steel Rats – PS4 | Review

Steel Rats – PS4 | Review

I will openly admit I had never heard of Steel Rats before I was asked to review it. I had seen a couple of mentions of it on my Twitter timeline but knew very little of the title before playing it. So this is a completely blind review with no…read more >
