First things first. Judge Dredd is in this, a very pixilated Judge Dredd, but clearly recognisable despite the clever name change to 'Brodredd', but it is him, he even fires ricochet bullets. When I rescued the Judge from his little cage you could have heard my fanboy squeal from France. Anyway, if you haven't already opened Steam and bought Broforce on the strength of Dredd being in it I suppose I'd better tell you a little bit about the game itself. It's a sixteen-bit ...
Titanfall Review

I admit it, I've got the next generation blues, all the chums I used to play Halo with have started disappearing to new consoles, and I'm left here bereft, crying into my unloved headset. It's not all bad news though, I have just recently bought a new computer, so can Titanfall fill my Halo-hole and make me some new friends? First of all Titanfall's single player campaign is actually multiplayer and it's a really baffling choice. The story is t...

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls PC Review

Wouldn't you just know it? You've been to heaven, kicked Diablo's balls back to the Stone Age and along comes the bloody Angel of Death to ruin it all. Such is the premise to Blizzard's Diablo 3 expansion Reaper of Souls. This new act bolts right on to the end of Diablo's existing campaign, but it is stuffed to the gills with enough gaming content to make at least two of the old acts put together. The main thing that really stands out when you play thro...

Southpark: The Stick of Truth Review

   11/03/2014 at 23:31       RICHARD HORNE       0 COMMENTS.
Pretty much every review of Southpark: The Stick of Truth I’ve read thus far has described how it’s essentially an interactive and extended version of the TV show. That, partly due to the show’s lo-fi aesthetic, but also, in testament to Obsidian’s talented artists and modelers, its visuals blur the line between game and video making the two pretty much indistinguishable. Those reviews have also commented on how the tur...

NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe S.A.S. Have just announced that the 25th of April is the date all sadistic PC gamers will be wanting to cut into their skin, for this is when Dark Souls II will be unleashed to the master race. They've also pinkie sweared that the Steam and retail version will fully benefit from your PC's capabilities, including increased texture resolution and an enhanced frame rate option. On top of all that jive FromSoftware have also been working to perfectly a...
Rayman Legends - Xbox One Review

Let’s be honest: gamers are a fickle, ignorant bunch. We’re too cool to admit enjoying playing Call of Duty and FIFA, but will fall over ourselves to recommend indie darlings such as Nidhogg and The Castle Doctrine. We look back nostalgically at the Nintendo vs. SEGA era with rose-tinted glasses proclaiming wistfully how “they don’t make ‘em like they used to” while failing to realise that we’ve never really had it ...
Super League Football Pinball Review

It’s a funny old game. Pinball that is*. Smacking a silver ball bearing around a track should have gone out with the ark but thanks to their increasingly inventive table designs, Zen have somehow managed to keep it completely relevant. The latest of which is/are the Super League Football table/s. The reasons for the slightly cagey/mangled grammar is that this pack contains a single table, reskinned in the livery of the world’s biggest teams, Arsenal, Liverpool...

PAC-MAN, the yellow video game hero with a permanent case of the munchies has transcended generation upon generation of gamers, and stars in this rose-tinted nostalgia-packed collection of games. Players will once again need to skilfully dodge and duck troublesome ghosts whilst gobbling up all the dots and power pellets lying in their path. PAC-MAN MUSEUM will include classic PAC-MAN titles as well as newer arcade releases, allowing gamers to play through the evolut...
Hearthstone Beta Review - Gather Round

Blizzard Entertainment’s Hearthstone invokes memories of my experiences with Carcassonne a couple of years back. I remember making a joke about loving the esoteric yet fiendishly strategic gameplay, while somehow managing not to have grown a neck beard. As clearly, at least in my pea-brained head, the two go hand-in-hand. And with Hearthstone, well I’ve got that feeling all over again. You s...
