Dirt Rally 2.0 Review

   19/02/2019 at 17:38       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Review By Rich Boulton.   Rally fans have been waiting for a sequel to 2015’s back-to-basics reboot of the Dirt franchise for a few years now. What they received most recently was Dirt 4, which valiantly attempted to capitalise on the new goodwill and combine it with the more mainstream appeal of Dirt (no-Rally). Thanks to a muddled identity and an ambitious, but underwhelming, procedurally generated stage system, it unfor...
Operencia: The Stolen Sun Developer Diary Brings The Old School

   07/02/2019 at 14:47       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Zen Studios of the Zen Pinball fame have just sent us this lovely little video for you all to enjoy. Looking like a solid update of the first person dungeon crawler, this Operencia: The Stolen Sun overview will give you an idea of where their ideas came from and the shaping of this brand new world. We're loving the look of this so far, and can't wait until the game release in the (hopefully) near future on Xbox One and Epic store....

All of you mad as a box of frogs Persona fans better get your diarys out, as you'll be able to help Persona 5's Phantom Thieves uncover a cinematic mystery with the aid of the casts of Persona 3, Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4. You'll be facing a strange world of film in this dungeon crawler which sees you trapped in a series of movies, each with its own twists and turns. The launch edition of Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth, whi...
Get Up to Speed on Metro Exodus With This New Video

Fancy that new fangled Metro Exodus game, but have no idea where to start? Well today is your lucky day as Deep Silver and 4A Games have created this lovely video just for you. It gives a great overview of what you can expect when the game releases on the 15th of February, from the different ways you can approach a battle to the time of day effects, which you will also have to consider before you commence your carnage. Also your base is a train. Not enough games have trains in...
Wargroove Review

   30/01/2019 at 18:28       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Review by Ashley Fiddes.   What to say about Wargroove, anyone who has ever played a turn-based tactics game (ala Advance Wars) will know the basics. You summon troops, capture bases which give you cash every turn which is used to summon more troops to capture more bases and give you more cash. Eventually, you build a big enough army that you move your troops against the enemy an...
Check Out Your Murdering Tools in Metro Exodus

   29/01/2019 at 10:41       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
As the release date of Metro Exodus creeps ever closer Deep Silver and 4A Studios have given us this sneak peak of the weapons you'll be using as you traverse across post-apocalyptic Russia. The Metro series has always been about the cobbled together nature of your guns and ammo, but here 4A Studios have ensured that each gun is totally functional and can be customised out in the irradiated field, which can give you tons of tactical options. Weapons also need to be c...
Unruly Heroes Review

   28/01/2019 at 18:36       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Review By Ashley Fiddes.   Unruly Heroes is a 2D puzzle platformer developed by Magic Design Studio.  The story, not that there is much of one, is based loosely on the Chinese Novel Journey to the West and sees you team up with the monkey king - Wukong and his three followers, Sanzang the wise, Kihong the greedy and Sandmonk the sensitive as they assist the goddess of mercy against the demon army and attempt to turn back the tide of...
Battle Princess Madelyn Review

   28/01/2019 at 18:06       ALEX VAUGHAN       0 COMMENTS.
Battle Princess Madelyn deserves a hearty dose of congratulations. A kickstarter darling, smashing funding and stretch goals and most importantly, releasing in good time. For good reason too; playing on nostalgia coupled with a sweet story to boot. You see, the creative director of the project, Chris Obritsch, had a young daughter, Madelyn, who loved to see her dad play through the Capcom classic, Ghouls ‘n Ghosts. So much she wanted to be in the game, however: ‘...
NAIRI: Tower of Shirin Review

   09/01/2019 at 17:59       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Review by Alex Vaughn.   Broken Age was going to be it. A new dawn of the point and click adventure; Tim Shafer back in his prime, Double Fine bringing point and click BACK and everything will be good again.  Broken Age wasn’t the new dawn. Double Fine didn’t bring it back. HomeBearStudio may just have.  NAIRI: Tower of Shirin, despite its terrible name is pretty good. Pretttyyyyy, ...
Darksiders 3 Review

   21/12/2018 at 17:10       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
After six long years and numerous ups and downs on the development side of things Darksiders 3 is finally here, it's an almost Christmas miracle! I've always loved this series, with its great character and world design, so for me personally it has been quite the long wait. Where Darksiders got it's inspiration from Zelda and the sequel morphed into a God of War actioner with loot tumbling from every which orifice, Darksiders  3 has ta...
Persona 3: Dancing In Moonlight and Persona 5: Dancing In Starlight Review

   28/11/2018 at 11:48       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Review by Ashley Fiddes.   After much umming and ahhhing over whether to review these two games as a collection or separately (you can buy them individually or as a pair which includes a download code for the excellent Persona 4: Dancing All Night), I eventually settled on one review to rule them all.  You see, Persona 3: Dancing In Moonlight and Persona 5: Dancing In Starlight are practically the same game.  T...
Darksiders III Story Trailer Is Pretty Great

   16/11/2018 at 14:22       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
After six (SIX) long years the wait is finally almost over. On the 27th of November you'll be able to slip into the metal boots of Fury, the most kick-bum of the four horsemen(horsepeople?). Taking place in an open ended free form post apocalyptic world, expect mucho fighting and puzzle solving in the best Darksiders tradition. Pre-order bonuses are up now if you like the look of it, and to be quite frank, who wouldn't?...
Call of Cthulhu Review

   08/11/2018 at 18:08       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Call of Cthulhu is a new game from Cyanide Studios, probably best know for their Styx stealth games and the recent, and rather good Space Hulk: Tactics. Based quite loosely on the RPG based on H.P. Lovecraft's cosmic horror books Call of Cthulhu plops you into the muddy boots of grizzled first world war veteran Edward Pierce, a slightly alcoholic detective working out of Boston in 1924. It's not long before you are handed your first case in an age, investig...
Red Dead Redemption 2 Review

   07/11/2018 at 16:31       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is a cowboy simulator from Rockstar Games, the same publisher who birthed Grand Theft Auto on to an unsuspecting world. Of course Red Dead Redemption 2 isn't just a cowboy sim, it's something a whole lot more. Come with me dear reader, let me explain the ways. Taking place in 1899 Red Dead Redemption 2 is a prequel to the previous game and you find yourself in the cowboy boots of one Arthur Morgan, the backbone of Dutch van der...
WWE 2K19 Review

Review by Dean Davis.   WWE 2K19 the latest instalment of the annual wrestling game by Yukes/2K is by far the biggest, boasting an obscene roster, new and returning modes including a brilliant revamped career mode that takes a lead from the 2K basketball games. You start off on the independent scene as a rookie working your way towards a lucrative move to the wrestling juggernaut WWE. Along your journey you get to upgrade your characters stats, m...
