5 Scariest Moments in Non Horror Games

I like to think I can handle my horror games; after all, the Resident Evil series are some of my favourite games. But that’s because I go in with the understanding that horror is on the cards and I will, in all likelihood, be jump-scared within an inch of my life. It’s the utter bastards that sneak horror into non horror games that make me question my life choices; here are 5 of the scariest momen...[Read More]

Kingdom Hearts III

The year was 2002 and I, an overweight, ginger nerd with zero interest in sports, was attending an all-boys catholic high school. Needless to say I was about as welcome there as a Syrian refugee at a UKIP fundraiser, but despite all that I was able to find one or two like-minded individuals. In fact it was one of them who introduced me to this weird Japanese game that had managed to slip completel...[Read More]

5 Times Video Games Used Hardware To Blow Our Minds

Video Games utilise many different things to provide the player with a unique gaming experience, some employ orchestral music, while others rely on stunning visuals. But some games use hardware to enhance the user experience and no I’m not talking about virtual reality. I’m talking about a marriage of hardware and gameplay that come together to elevate their respective games to something more than...[Read More]

Video Games to Look Forward to in 2019

Well it’s been 2019 for a few days now and nothing terrible has happened. But if 2018 is any indication on what’s to come we should be expecting the death of a beloved celebrity and the president of the USA to do something alarmingly racist. However it’s not all doom and gloom on the horizon, we still have video games and this year is shaping up to have some great ones, so here are some of the vid...[Read More]

Top 5 Video Games of 2018

With 2018 firmly in the rear-view mirror (and good fucking riddance to it) it’s about that time were we look back at all the awesome games we’ve enjoyed over the past year. Of course this list is personal and by no means definitive; these are just the games that I personally have had the most fun with in 2018.   5th Dead Cells I always seem to be late to the party when it comes to games like ...[Read More]

GRIP: Combat Racing

You could be forgiven for thinking that the world of GRIP: Combat Racing is nothing but a post-apocalyptic future where only cars and explosions have survived. But I looked it up and to my surprise there is a story buried somewhere amidst all the vehicular carnage. Something about illegal street racing, black market TV subscriptions and corruption, but we’re not here for story. No, we’re here to r...[Read More]

Elea: Episode 1

Elea begins with a few floating space paragraphs to give the player some context as to what’s going on and what they are letting them-selves in for. We are informed that the Earth was ravaged by a neurological mutation that turns every Earth born child into a rage monster and the only cure strips them of all emotion. Humanity decides that Earth is fucked and that a new planet is needed so they sen...[Read More]

8-Bit Armies

Ah the humble RTS, how I’ve missed you. It seems like only yesterday I was whiling away my Saturday nights trying to get past that God damn chopper mission from the first C&C or pouring days at a time into Red Alert 3, good times. But with EA determined to empty their bowels all over the Command & Conquer franchise it seemed that my RTS thirst was to go unquenched, that was until 8-Bit Arm...[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]

God of War

You would have a hard time convincing people that the way Kratos goes about things in the previous God of War games resembles anything close to reasonable. But I got the feeling, we weren’t meant to take him seriously and simply enjoy the cathartic violence. So, when this new God of War sauntered onto our screens with a new family and a more reserved attitude I was somewhat puzzled. You’ve killed ...[Read More]

Shadow of The Colossus HD

I was a massive fan of the original Shadow of The Colossus when it first debuted on PlayStation 2, I have fond memories of performing lizard genocide to improve my grip meter, all so I could scale a massive monster and stab him up the urethra. So, when the PS4 version was announced I was overjoyed that I would get to return to that world and kill sentient mountains, while they try to shake off the...[Read More]
