Let’s Go Nuts – Review

Let’s Go Nuts by BeardedBrothers.Games is certainly a different game, you feel right at home yet also like you are staying at that creepy aunt’s house you’ve never met before. The platforming is so familiar, but the game mechanics are a fresh and unfamiliar take on this tried and true

Etherborn – Review

Well, here we are again! Back and ready to re-dive into the wonderfully creative and mind-bending game of Altered Matter’s Etherborn.  Previously, I wrote about the preview / demo version of this game, giving you a vast outline of what was currently available for this title, the wonders it holds

Damsel – Review

Damsel is a fast paced, action platformer brought to you by Screwtape Studios, with its non-stop thrills and stylish look, Damsel is a speed runners and action platform players’ dream. The story is set in a world where vampires and humans co-exist, but the story primarily revolves around the main

XTRFY H1 Pro Gaming Headset – Review

Ninjas In Pyjamas. Fun name, but a renowned name. The esports team, Ninjas in Pyjamas, have their toes dipped in a number of games but are famously celebrated for their CS:GO team in competitive gaming circuits. Unsurprisingly they have teamed up with Xtrfy to develop the H1 Pro Gaming Headset.

God Eater 3 (Playstation 4) – 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

Pagan Online – Early Access Review

Pagan Online is an energetic and easy to enjoy, fast-paced hack-and-slash, action RPG set in a fantasy universe, inspired by slavic myths. Other games inspired by slavic myths such as The Witcher series have always been enjoyable and highly re-playable and Pagan Online is along the lines of such games.

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’

Devolver Bootleg – Review

It’s such a thrill to see major companies create a game, seemingly “taking the mickey”or make fun of themselves in a good way. Ubisoft did it with their game Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon, Rare did it with their raunchy adult take on a lovable creature Conkers Bad Fur Day

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
