Stela – Review

Stela developed by SkyBox Labs, not known for horroresque type platformers, is a beautifully grim tale following our hero, Stela, who must face both physical and mental demons through a desolate and decaying world. Anyone that knows me, knows these thriller type, indie creepy games are as far as I’ll

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep – Review

Shadowkeep, Destiny 2’s first expansion puts players up against The Nightmares. The Nightmares are essentially the ghosts of some of your favorite enemies from the past 5 years of the Destiny universe. The Nightmares are pretty much the same enemies we’ve all seen before since the series started with one

Deliver Us The Moon – Review

Space: the final frontier. The entire concept of space, zero gravity, no sound and the infinite number of possible planets and possibilities they present are truly mind-boggling. So, when this game landed in my virtual lap, and it was space related, I knew I had to look at this endeavor…

John Wick Hex – Review

Let’s be real for a quick second: Video games based on movies very rarely pay off. When the loves of ET, Jurassic Park & Back to the Future all bomb out as gaming titles, there’s little wonder why this stigma is still around today. So, when E3 dropped the knowledge

Indivisible – Review

505 Games S.p.A. is an Italian video game publisher based in Milan. It was founded in 2006 as a subsidiary of Digital Bros. and are behind games as Sniper Elite 2 and Payday 2, both of which are enjoyable games to play. As this game was handed to me to

GRID – Review

GRID, it’s back and ready to burn some rubber. Developed and published by CODEMASTERS, GRID is the fourth iteration in the GRID series intended to be a reboot to the franchise and bring together fans new and old. I haven’t played a GRID game in a long time and it

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint – Review

I’ve always been a fan of open world games. Skyrim, Fallout, Grand Theft Auto, all games that have huge open worlds you can explore and a virtual treasure chest of things to discover. When Ubisoft released The Division and Ghost Recon: Wildlands, I spent countless hours roaming the environment, trying

The Surge 2 – Review

Here we go again… more clean underwear needed. As you may or may not know, I am a sook and scare easily. The Surge 2 just reinforced that fact. Based in a futuristic & dystopian city, The Surge 2 plants itself squarely in a time and place where Skynet rules

Code Vein – Review

Back in May, I was fortunate enough to be given access to the Close Beta for Code Vein. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to play as much as I would have liked due to other work commitments, and I didn’t really progress as far as I probably should have, but what

Truck Driver – Review

Soedesco is a Dutch developer based in the Hoogvliet borough of Rotterdam in 2002. These are the guys that have brought the truck driving realness of the open road into your living rooms. How many people can say “I wonder what it’s like being a truck driver?” Let me tell

FIFA 20 – Review

Every year, year on year, there is always that list of things you can count on to return. Christmas time, Tax time, the dreaded flu season and of course the flurry of sports games on our consoles and computers. Of course, there are those FPS games too, but they do

RIG 700 HX Headset – Review

The RIG 700 HX is new wireless headset from Plantronics that’s designed to work with Xbox & Windows 10. The RIG 700 HX headset is quite simple in design but makes up for in other ways. The frame is lightweight plastic but diverts from its basic suspended strap aesthetics most

Devil’s Hunt – Review

Bear with me because this going to be a stretch hybrid. Have you ever wondered what Devil May Cry mixed with Darksiders with a very Miami Vice-esq protagonist would be like? (told you it was a stretch) but if you answered “YES” or “Hmm, that sounds strange yet cool” then

Borderlands 3 – Review

There are so many looter – shooter games available these days that we are spoiled for choice. From Destiny to The Division and even Anthem, all of them offer a vast amount of loot to be found and a seemingly limitless amount of potential to build the character the way

4.5

Hunt: Showdown – Review

Clean underwear, that’s what you will need when playing Hunt: Showdown. I am pretty sure I soiled mine just in the tutorial! Hunt: Showdown reeks with elements of games such as Resident Evil, DayZ & even a bit of an old favorite of mine, Hexen. While the horror genre is

NBA2K20 – Review

It is no secret that I am not a fan of sporting games. I still maintain that if you want to play basketball, soccer, hockey or anything else that I have yet to mention, that you go out and actually play the real sport. Now, I understand that only a

Gears 5 – Review

It’s finally here. Gears 5 by The Coalition is out now and available to the masses, and i’m going to come out and say it right off the bat, Gears 5 is definitely one of the best installments in the Gears of War franchise. Let’s start with the campaign. In

The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan – Review

The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan is an interactive, drama horror game developed by Supermassive Games, the brilliant minds behind the highly praised PS4 exclusive, Until Dawn and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. Now, let me just start off by saying I have been incredibly excited for this title ever

Whipseey And The Lost Atlas – Review

Blowfish studios, the independent, Australian video game publisher are back, not long either, after dropping a previous extremely fun title, ‘SubDivision Infinity DX’. I was given the pleasure of playing and reviewing that too which is available on their website, so I was definitely excited to get my hands on

Control – Review

It’s become common knowledge around the office that I really enjoy anything relating to the supernatural. I mean, you just have to look at what I use to wear in my old clubbing days to see that I’m a little strange like that. Fortunately for me, 505 Games has recently

RAD – Review

What is with the flood of 80’s inspired games as of late? I have literally reviewed like nine or ten in the last 6 months and it seems like the fad is not dying soon. It seems with the success of television shows in the likes of Stranger Things it

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden – Review

I have never been a strategy, turn based game player. They require patience, thought-out movement and finesse. All attributes, I definitely do not possess, believe me, ask my colleagues. I loathed my last experience with one and that is no exaggeration. I’ve avoided them since. Mutant Year Zero: Road to

Subdivision Infinity DX – Review

This little gem I’ve been toiling away with recently is from Sydney based Publisher, Blowfish Studios. When I was offered this to review, I was expecting an indie style game but what I got was a little under 2Gb of pure fun! Space! The final frontier… Or is it? I

Age of Wonders: Planetfall – Review

Age of Wonders: Planetfall is a turn based strategy (TBS) by the critically acclaimed creators of previous ‘Age of Wonders’ and ‘Overlord’ series, Triumph Studios. Age of Wonders: Planetfall takes on a more sci-fi approach than previous Age of Wonder games, opening up in the shadow of The Galactic Empire

The Church In The Darkness – Review

The Church in the Darkness is set in the late 1970’s, with you taking on the role of Vic, an ex-law enforcement officer, whose nephew Alex has joined a religious cult run by Isaac and Rebecca Walker, leaders of ‘The Collective Justice Mission’. Labelled as radicals by the US government,

Wolfenstein: Youngblood – Review

Wolfenstein: YoungBlood appears to sit comfortably right at home, warm and familiar, but in the same sense feels distant and cold, almost enstranged. This game has the internet divided at the moment, people generally don’t adjust well to change but how much change is justifiable? And is it innovative change?

Damsel (Xbox One) – Review

Somewhat surprisingly, I’m actually starting to enjoy some of the more arcade style games we’ve been getting recently. It’s been a very nice change of pace and we can generally get a pretty good idea of the game in a relatively short period of time. Plus, when you live in
