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]

And like any reasonable prepubescent, Max proceeds to look up a spell online to rid himself of his terminal case of younger brother.

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]

5 Worst Video Game Betrayals

Video Games have a great knack for tugging at your heart strings, they are fictional worlds that we spend hours exploring, saving, and are filled with awesome characters that we develop bonds with. And it is because of that fondness that we feel all the more betrayed when one of the back-stabbing buggers turns around and fucks us over, maybe it’s for money, maybe it’s for power or maybe it’s becau...[Read More]

5 Video Game Characters We Loved Killing

If you haven’t yet worked it out, I love video games, mostly because I get to hit stuff with a sword and shoot stuff with a gun, but also because they’re a great way to tell a story, and they happen to have some of the greatest fictional characters ever. Video game characters can be strong and brave, quiet and reserved, or so infuriating to be around that you can’t help but devise painful, yet ela...[Read More]

5 Video Games To Get Excited For In 2018

2017 may have been a shit year for politics and world affairs, but at least we had some kick ass video games to play while the world around us was going to hell, let it never be said that I can’t find the silver lining in the ever-looming apocalypse.  But can 2018 deliver the same level of excellence or would we all be better off with Trump hitting the button a few months early, so we don’t have t...[Read More]

Top 5 Video Games of 2017

Well it’s getting to that time of year again, Christmas has ended, and we’ve eaten and drank so much that we hate ourselves enough to make vain resolutions about self-improvement that we have no intention of keeping. But it is also the time when us video game bloggers, who think people give a shit about our opinion, make lists of our favourite yearly games. And I, being the loud mouth tosser that ...[Read More]

5 Video Game Bosses We Didn’t Want to Kill

What video game is complete without a great villain, they drive us to become better at games so that when the time comes we can shove a broad sword right up their arse, all the way up to the hilt! But every once in a while, a video game villain will come along that we don’t want to kill, perhaps because they’re just too awesome or maybe because deep down they maybe, just maybe they weren’t s...[Read More]
