God Eater 3 – Review

Coming off the massive success of reviving famed anime series Dragon Ball Z, One Piece, My Hero Academia & Naruto into massively successful RPGs and / or fighting titles, Bandai Namco Entertainment returns to console and PC gaming with a vengeance as they proudly present the third entry to their

The Padre – Review

I have never really played any TellTale style games. I think I gave one a shot, but I didn’t enjoy it, so much so, that I don’t even recall the name of it. To me they always felt slow and one directional. I know this isn’t always the case, but

Sea of Solitude – Review

Overwhelming sadness, guilt, grief and loneliness. The times we do experience these feelings, it does indeed feel as if you are drowning in an endless expanse of water. Games that highlight mental health may seem like the ‘in’ craze at the moment, but whose to say this is a bad

Dragon Star Varnir – Review

In the world of Vaneria, an ongoing war rages between humans, witches and dragons. The humans see both the witches and dragons as threats to their society and want them all dead. The dragons are large beasts who naturally want to destroy anything and everything around them. The witches have

The Sinking City – Review

The Sinking City brings life to the quirky, H.P Lovecraft mythos in this adventure and investigator game developed by Frogwares and published by Bigben Interactive. Frogwares are famously known for previously working on the Sherlock Holmes games such as the Devil’s Daughter and Crimes & Punishment. With The Sinking City,

Furwind – Review

Platforming games are a bit of a retro gamer staple. They have been around for a long time, so in saying that, it is very hard to be innovative on a tried and tested genre. What will the delightful platformer ‘Furwind’ by Boomfire Games do to make it stand out

Terraria – Review

I never had the chance to really get into building games such as Minecraft which is surprising because games that get the creative juices flowing have always piqued my interest. Due to the overwhelming number of children that flock to these communities, I will admit it also has scared me

War Tech Fighters – Review

War Tech Fighters is a game that reminds me of a childhood favorite “Mechwarrior” combined with a bit of “Freelancer”, throw in some movies such as Transformers and Pacific Rim and you get War Tech Fighters. War Tech Fighters has run with the idea of humans piloting huge machines to

Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled – Review

The year is 1999, a mere 5 years since the release of Sony’s PlayStation. We’ve currently spent half a decade with family friend like characters such as a dragon named Spyro, a strange slave escapee on Oddworld called Abe, a British tomb raider named Lara Croft and a cooky, orange

MotoGP 19 – Review

I’ve never really been much of a Motorsport fan as I’ve never really understood the fascination of watching V8’s, F1’s or even Super trucks go around the same track time and time again. But hey, if that’s what tickles your fancy, I’m not one to judge. That said, I don’t

F1 2019 – Review

First and foremost, I need to give a bit of a disclaimer. This review is going to look very similar to one I have done in the past, and there is a reason for that. A lot of sports based games that are released yearly don’t really seem to offer

My Friend Pedro – Review

If you know me as a gamer, I live for an in-depth, fleshed out story that takes my mind on a journey. The quite manic, split personality in me sometimes (…just sometimes…) likes to blindly and remorselessly gun down hombres in an explosion of gore and violence. ‘My Friend Pedro’

Layers Of Fear 2 – Review

Layers of Fear 2 is a psychological horror video game developed and published by Bloober Team who are the minds behind the first Layers of Fear and Observer. I love anything to do with horror, especially gaming! Outlast 1 & 2, Friday the 13th, I even played Slenderman when it

Kerbal Space Program – Review

When you were growing up, I’m sure the ice breaker many adults used to try and have a conversation with you (that didn’t require impersonating the high pitched speaking voice of an action figure or a doll) was “What do you want to be when you grow up?”. I’m double

Unruly Heroes – Review

Unruly Heroes follows four unlikely characters on their journey to the west in this side scrolling action adventure. If you didn’t already know, this game follows monkey and his three companions in a story that is inspired by the Chinese legend ‘A journey to the west’ better known as the

Blades of Time – Review

Blades of Time for the Nintendo Switch was released on the 14th Of May 2019, made by Gaijin Entertainment and published by Konami and Iceberg Interactive. Straight out of the gate I had the feeling that I was playing a sort of knock off version of Tomb Raider, which is

My Lovely Daughter – Review

What would you do to save a life? Would you take the lives of many to save someone you care about? Even if you are destroying your own creations you have cherished? These are the Frankenstein and his monster type questions you must ask yourself in My Lovely Daughter by

Blood & Truth – Review

I remember as a kid, running around the back yard pretending to be a soldier, or a police officer, carrying a stick or a big block of LEGO because I didn’t have toy guys. (My pocket money was spent on video games for the most part) I’d run around for

Gato Roboto – Review

Ever wondered what would happen if you replaced ‘Samus’ from the ‘Metroid’ series with a cat? And say this cat had access to an impressive arsenal of giant robotic mech suits and weaponry, whilst roaming an isolate space planet? Sounds insane, yet awesome, right?! Well, Devolver Digital, the studio that

Super Cane Magic ZERO – Review

When you tell people you work as a reviewer for a gaming website, they generally get very excited, “Oh, you get to play all the cool games before they’re released!” or “Oh I’ve always wanted to do that! It must be so easy!” The reality is quite different. Now don’t

Lapis X Labyrinth – Review

Lapis X Labyrinth is a side scrolling JPRPG platformer that I found myself thrown into the deep end from the get-go. The main screen doesn’t feature much except from “start new game” and some basic aesthetics and unfortunately, it doesn’t give you the option to adjust the difficulty, sound or

Heaven’s Vault – Review

A well-traveled looking woman stands in front of a mountain. The dusty plains whip sand around, blinding her vision. Still, she continues forward with her robotic sidekick following eagerly behind. After a brief climb, she exclaims: “We’ve made it”. The camera pans out to reveal a hut and a path

Observation – Review

Science fiction has always been a big part of my life. From an early age, Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back was always a favorite film. Video games have giving me the opportunity to live out situations that I’ll never be able to achieve in reality. The romance of living aboard
