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

   01/11/2018 at 13:47       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
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...
Vroom Kaboom Review

   19/10/2018 at 13:22       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Review by Rich Boulton.   So, I guess this is a tower-defense-car-combat-collectible-card-free-to-play game. The idea of coming up with an elevator pitch for Vroom Kaboom seems like an insurmountable challenge. Even watching videos of gameplay only gives you a partial sense of what the game actually is. The only way to communicate it is with a detailed description of the setup, so… here we go? Each match has two players, one is at ...
Space Hulk: Tactics Review

   12/10/2018 at 13:34       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Review by Dean Davis.   Space Hulk: Tactics by Cyanide studio is a turn based strategy game adaption of the Space Hulk board game. First and foremost I feel the need to clarify that I came into this without any real knowledge of Warhammer 40k, I played a bad action game based in the 40k universe once but that’s about it. I therefore had no real expectations or presumptions going in as to what to expect, I also can’t give any c...
Dakar 18 Review

   11/10/2018 at 15:29       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Review by Rich Boulton.   The Dakar rally presents a fascinating challenge to translate into a game. The annual event covers thousands of miles over 11 days, with a variety of vehicles across harsh, open terrain and incredibly long individual stages. A great deal of the challenge is in the endurance itself, vehicle repairs, navigational challenges. Developers Big Moon have not chosen the path of least resistance in releasing Dakar 18. They could ...
Fire Pro Wrestling World PS4 Review

   10/10/2018 at 17:40       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Fire Pro Wrestling World is an odd beast, a game which promises to bring back the heady days of your youth, when games were simple and fun, but making just enough changes to bring it into the space year 2018. Let's see how it does, shall we? Fire Pro Wrestling has been about since 1989 on PC Engine, but it's the 1991 version I remember drooling over in the pages of Mean Machines magazine and the like. Still developed by Spike Chunsoft not that much seems to have chan...

People, you are going to need this. Check out the video below for new information on the seamless world quests, new activities (fishing!), first person mode and details of the new and improved dead eye system. We reckon this could be Rockstar's best game yet. Red Dead Redemption 2 releases on the 26th of October for Xbox One and Playstation 4....
DAKAR 18 Released to a Rallying Cry

   28/09/2018 at 13:28       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Based on the worlds biggest rally raid DAKAR 18 is a realistic simulation of the sport. The game promises a realistic and faithful representation of the South American Mad Max-a-like. The game includes all the major real life teams, vehicles, pilots and racing categories, which include cars, bikes, trucks, quads and SxS. DAKAR 18 also features single player and mutliplayer options, allowing you to race against seven other people online or partake in some good...
The Council Episode 4: Burning Bridges

   27/09/2018 at 13:36       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Episodic games are super hard to review, I can't tell you much of the story, just a basic overview really. In this second to last instalment decisions you've made in the earlier chapters start to roll in their consequences. Alliances come to light and rivalries come to conclusions. You most likely wouldn't have played the same way as I have, so your story will not be quite the same. It is always interesting though, not quite as edge of the seat as earlier episodes, but it is a good yarn and s...
