Hammerting

Ok, so there is no actual contract to speak of, but I imagine it would be a very one-sided document. Hammerting is brought to us by the same publishers of the famous Worms series, Team 17, and is already recognizable with a similar core design. This new game is a mining sim, with some additional elements from the RPG genre such as stat management and requires the player to manage a team of miners ...[Read More]

5 Of The Best Souls-Borne Bosses

I haven’t always been a fan of the Souls-Borne games, in fact the first time I played one (Dark Souls 1) I bounced right off it. Maybe it was the way the game introduced combat, maybe it was the controls or (and I think this is the main reason) it’s because I took a right and ended up in skeletal buggery hell. As it turns out, this area was a late game area and I was supposed to go left, but after...[Read More]

The Suicide of Rachel Foster

I don’t often play “Walking Simulator” games, more accurately, I don’t complete many “Walking Simulators”, I have, in fact, started dozens, it’s just the majority of them  don’t really do anything to maintain my interest. Over the years there have been two exceptions, “Gone Home” and “Journey” but now that I have completed “The Suicide of Rachel Foster” I can proudly say…there are still only two. ...[Read More]

Drink More Glurp

Drink More Glurp, released earlier this month on Nintendo Switch and Steam, asks what would happen if aliens got the wrong end of the stick about the Summer Olympics. The answer is a wacky, colourful and frustrating as hell experience that will give your thumb sticks a rigorous workout and make your brain fizz with fury. I was all in on this concept. The premise is, aliens have binge watched so mu...[Read More]

Mortal Shell

Ever since FromSoftware created the beloved Soulsborne series there have been many imitators, determined to replicate their success. And while some have been better than others, none have truly captured what made the Soulsborne games so great. But with the Dark Souls series wrapped up and no sign of a Bloodborne sequel, those of us hungry for another bollock buster of a video game are forced to lo...[Read More]

Peaky Blinders: Mastermind

Having played the first few levels, I think I have grasped enough of the mechanics and gameplay to decide if it’s worth playing through, and it wasn’t too bad, but at the same time it isn’t what I would have asked for in a game about gangsters in post-WW1 England. The TV show, which streams on Netflix and is on its fifth season, is filled with sly tactical decisions, discretion, gang violence and ...[Read More]

STATIONFlow

I’m going to come right out and say that I had a lot more fun with this than I thought I would. On first appearance it looks just like one of those typical indie simulators you see rocking around Steam, and it is an indie simulator on Steam, but with quite a substantial amount of entertainment value. Now, I’m not dissing indie games, as they are usually some of the most creative, reasonably priced...[Read More]

The 5 Worst Irish Video Game Characters Ever

Tis the season to get wankered! Ah yes St. Patrick’s Day, the day when we proud Irish men and women venerate an agnostic English man who said “Out te fuck ye slithering bastards”! And while most of my country men will mark this occasion by getting rubbered, I choose to celebrate it by twisting it into an excuse to talk about video games. With that said here are 5 of The Worst Irish Video Game Char...[Read More]

John Romero Interview

John Romero is the original Rock Star of gaming, the Godfather of the first person shooter, responsible for coining the now infamous term deathmatch. Need we say any more? Oh we will, John set the standard for first person shooter game play almost 20 years ago and simply put, every FPS you’ve ever played or heard of has been influenced by the work of this genius. We got the chance to interview the...[Read More]

Vampyr

I have to admit, it’s been a while since a review has given me this much trouble. Normally I find it pretty straight forward, game good here’s why, or game bad insert self-important wankey rant here. But in Vampyr’s case it’s hard to give a simple yay or nay, so why don’t I just put it all down on digital paper and by the end, hopefully, we’ll have our answer. Set in London in the year 1918 in the...[Read More]

Into the Unknown: Part 3 Apocalypse Chow

In our last entry we left our heroes on the ragged edge of an ever-closing zone 4, now we return to the action, with each passing moment the odds stack higher, and not in Shannon or Kevin’s favour. After composing our-selves and proceeding into zone five, I am left with this sinking feeling that we are nearing the end of our long journey.  Consulting the map brings little joy, even collecting supp...[Read More]

Pure Farming 2018

Yes, surprisingly there is an actual story, believe me I am as shocked as you, it is centred around a city boy who, after spending many a summer on his Grandfathers ranch, is impassioned with a love of rural living. So, when the chance to take over the family farm presents itself the young man leaps at the chance, though the Grandfather had to die for this to happen, yeah, another surprise I didn’...[Read More]
