Review - This War of Mine: The Little Ones


Are you ready for some darkness? Are you ready to have the lives of different survivors in your hands, keeping them fed, medicated, and away from depression during a raging war? This is a survival war game with the inspiration taken from the 92-96 Siege of Sarajevo during the Bosnian War, and it is heavy. Are you ready for this?


Review - Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo


There are way too many racing games which gives the control complete control from the beginning, there are no real skill involved you just push the gas and drift through the different turns until you finally hit the finish line, these are mostly arcade racing games and there is fun to be had there too, but Sebastien Loebs Rally Evo is nothing of the sort, this is nitty, gritty, in-your-face racing. You are going to have to learn the hard way how to control these oiled beasts, but when you do there is nothing like the feeling of being in control of everything this game has to offer. This is every petrol-heads wet dream


Review - Gravity Rush Remastered


If I had a Playstation Vita I think Gravity Rush would be one of my favourite games on that system, sadly though I had one for a incredible short period of time until I realized it was just collecting dust and got rid of it before I encountered Gravity Rush. Luckily for me and many other who shared the same fate as I did I now own a Playstation 4 and a re-release of the game has finally arrived on this platform, Gravity Rush Remastered is here to knock you off your feet if you haven't already been floored by this release already, pun intended


Review - Just Cause 3


Just Cause 3 has finally been unleashed upon us, and judging by the trailers and previews leading up to the games released it seemed like third time the charm, but sadly, Just Cause 3 is riddled with the same problems the previous games encountered, glitches, game breaking bugs and repetitive gameplay, however it is still a whole lot of fun blowing up stuff though


Review - Fallout 4


It is that time of the year again, it is Fallout season. As a long time Fallout fan you can imagine my excitement when our PS4 review code for Fallout 4 finally came. Fallout 4 seems familiar the second you start playing it if you have previously played a Fallout game (Fallout 3 most noticeable), but the tweaks and improvements in Fallout 4 are much more noticeable as soon as you put a few hours into it. Kick back and relax because judging by the share size of this game this is going to be a long review for the PS4 version of Fallout 4


Review - Call of Duty Black Ops III


Third times the charm is a saying that rarely holds any meaning, the same can be said for Call of Duty Black Ops 3 seeing as the previous two on the series has seen incredible success and it was a no-brainer that we would get a third in the series. The question is however, can Treyarch have lightning strike thrice ? If you want the answer you should check out this review for Call of Duty: Black Ops III for the Playstation 4


Review - WWE 2K16


If you smell what 2K is cooking then it might be because it is a familiar smell and you might already know what it tastes like. WWE 2K15 released last year to a lukewarm reception and as I long-time wrestling fan, and wrestling-game fan I have always wanted the series to become better and better as the years went by, but sadly it has been the other way around. Last years release was one of the worst in my opinion but since this is the only yearly series of wrestling games being released I keep coming back for more, hoping it will be better. Now I promised myself, that if WWE 2K16 wasn't better than last years release I would never go back to the series, and I am glad to admit that it is better than last years release, but it still isn't great


Review - Samurai Warriors 4-II


Samurai Warriors is back and this time with a follow-up to the previously released Samurai Warriors 4. It is not an expansion and it is not DLC but a stand-alone release in the series. However slapping a 2 at the end of an already numbered title always confuses me so I was eager to check out the reason as to why this is a new game and not a revamped previous release. I found Samurai Warriors 4-II to be a mixed bag and it all depends what you expecting heading into this game


A Newbie Conquers Final Fantasy


In the following months I will dive deep into the land of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. In this series of articles I will share my journey as a completely newbie of both the series, yes I am a Final Fantasy newbie and not especially proud of the fact, and the genre. I have tried to get into numerous FF releases but nobody has really grabbed me, I have also dabbled into numerous MMOs with the same end result. This time its different, I think I have found the reason as to why so many people love this game especially because somehow Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn has managed to do the one thing that other MMOs couldn't, get me passed level 20 and still have my interest. So join me as I stumble across the beautiful land and learn, by failing mostly, how to master this game and hopefully reach level 50 at some point


Review - Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below


This is not the Dragon Quest game you are looking for, wait, before you stop reading this review let me explain what that sentence really means. Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below (which might just be one of the longest titles in history) isn't your typical Dragon Quest game but there is enough Dragon Quest lore in here for any fan to still appreciate it. Still not making sense? Then keep reading our review of Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below


Review - Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection


Uncharted has been a flagship title for the Playstation ever since Uncharted: Drake's Fortune first released back in 2007 for the Playstation 3. Not only was it an incredible experience gameplay-wise but also a stunning powerhouse, back then, when it came to the visuals. Since then two more games has dropped in the series Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. All games managed to push the power of the consoles and improved both visuals and gameplay mechanics to the brim, so it goes without saying that the before the fourth instalment of the series Uncharted 4: A Thief's End drops early next year we get a bundle with the previous three games revamped for the Playstation 4 called Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection


Review - Transformers Devastation


Back in the day there was two things that mattered to me, He-Man and his Universe and Transformers. As a die hard fan of both of those series it saddens me that there really never has been a game adaptation of either that has really struck me, not saying there has been a ton of He-Man games but Transformers on the other hand has seen a nice set of releases since the 80s. The latest release in the Transformers franchise is Devastation and it is by far the most beautiful and nostalgic Transformers game ever released, sadly it is too short and the scenario never really changes all that much, but man oh man how I love this game


Review - Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5


Here we are, nearly 16 years since the first Tony Hawk Pro Skater released. I played the game on my Playstation and it was the first time I had ever put a skateboard game on my top 10 games of that year (I am not forgetting Skate or Die, I just didn't make lists back then). I have always been a skater in real life until I got older and couldn't keep up with “those darn kids and their hover-boards”, but I never lost interest in the art of skateboarding and followed the series with every release it saw. And it is with a sad heart and a confused mind I type up this review with only really one question lingering in the back of my head this whole time, what the hell happened?


Review - Skylanders Superchargers


Toys-to-life is a phenomenon without questions, the way the toys-to-life concept has blossomed over the last couple of years is nothing but amazing. Now some of you might have a different view of these toys that you can interact with but as a father of two it is more of a love hate kind of thing. I love seeing my kids interact with them but I hate buying them, so you can imagine my sigh of relief when I took it upon myself to review the latest in the Skylanders franchise, Skylanders Superchargers for the Playstation 4


Review - PES 2016


'tis the season to be jolly, if you are a football fan. I mean what better time of the year than when it is getting colder outside and you don't have to leave the comfort of your own home to kick that pesky ball around like some kind of lunatic. I mean seriously, why couldn't real football be as easy as video games? Fear not, tis the season for football games to release and we all know there are really only two, Fifa and PES, this year we have chosen the winner and therefore we have only one review, our PES 2016 review and the reason why PES 2016 is the best football game out there right now


Review - NBA 2K16

harden nba 2k16 1433455905690 19229208 ver1.0 640 480

Take me back to the 90s when the words “A Spike Lee Joint” meant that you were about to see something revolutionary, the year however is 2016 or should I say 2K16. A new era of sport games has come and gone and last years release in the NBA 2K series saw a improved game which I personally though would have just kept improving but sadly this is not the case this time around, but relax, sit down and rest your eyeballs on this as we go for nothing but nets with the latest release from 2K, NBA 2K16


Review - Destiny: The Taken King


Do you feel like a reason to head back into the wonderful world of Destiny? Have you given up hope on the game as you, and many other, had enough of being cheated out of engram but yet secretly hoped it would get fixed because the shooting is some of the best in any shooter game out there? Tired of the same old missions, head back to the tower, collect your rewards and head back out and wished for more content? Think you are levelled up enough for it not to matter and dreaming about a brand new level cap? Well you my friend are going to love what I have to say about the newly released expansion for Destiny entitled The Taken King...


Review - Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain


It is time for the swansong to commence and for us all to wave goodbye to what we all know and love as the Metal Gear Solid franchise. What started out as a weird game has turned into some of the most memorable experiences in gaming history. A story that has had us scratching and clawing at our heads trying to paste it all together to sum up a somewhat coherent story and with the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain we wave goodbye to the brilliant mind of Kojima, at least under the Konami umbrella, and what a way to go out it is. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is one of the best games released on the current gen consoles but it is also one of the least Metal Gear games in Kojima history


Review - Tearaway Unfolded


Tearaway is back and this time it gives players who didn't get to experience this beautiful gem of a game when it first released on the Playstation Vita, who owns a Playstation 4, a chance to experience it for themselves. And if you are like me, a grown man with kids or just really into chill out games aimed mostly for kids then there is no reason for you not to pick this up. Even if you played the original there are new stuff and new ways to play on the Playstation 4 that makes the game worth a second play through


Review - Until Dawn


These last couple of years survival horror games has taken a prominent place in the interest of gamers around the world. Not since the Resident Evil series ruled the world have we seen this many survival horror games being released, some with greater success than others. The only problem with survival horror games lately has been nailing the gameplay with the suspense, but along comes Until Dawn
