Eastern Exorcist

2020 has been a pretty shit year all round, racial tension in America, Donald Trump as President of America…well, just America in general really, the coronavirus wreaking havoc on the world and to top it all off the video games have been a bit of a let-down. I had all but resigned myself to the fact that I would just have to wait until November when Cyberpunk 2077 comes out (and it better come out...[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]

Void Terrarium

The world has been contaminated, toxic spores have spread across the planet, and those infected have sprouted a fungus that has led to the devastation of humanity. Your job is to keep a young girl, perhaps the only one of her kind, alive, and survive a barren post-apocalyptic wasteland filled with savage creatures. No I’ve not been replaying The Last Of Us; this is the premise for NIS America’s la...[Read More]

The Outer Worlds

I was apprehensive about this game right up until the day of purchase. I mean, on the surface it’s everything I want in a game. A story driven RPG that boasts the ability to play it anyway you chose, companion NPCs and a vast Sci-Fi universe to explore, brought to us by Obsidian; a proven talent. But never the less, over the years the AAA video game industry has eroded my trust to the point where ...[Read More]

5 RPG Characters We Hate Having In Our Party

Who doesn’t love a good RPG? Serial killers and Trump voters that’s who, I mean you get to embark on an amazing journey and experience a fantastic story all while battling the forces of evil. Of course what would an RPG be without companions, well, it would be The Witcher, but that’s beside the point. Most great RPGs allow you to recruit party members to help aid you in your quest to stop the end ...[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]

Rejoice fellow nerds for it is here, the perfect gift for that one friend you have who happens to fall within the Venn diagram of loves Dark Souls, collects vinyl and loves to listen to music that reminds him/her of the time they fucked their controller at a loved one, because Ornstein and Smough kicked their ass for the 30th time. Yes, it’s the complete Dark Souls, Dark Souls II and Dark Souls II...[Read More]

Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom Delayed

So, it looks like it’s bad news for fans of Ni no Kuni, not to mention JRPG fans in general as it was revealed today that Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom will be postponed until 19th January 2018. While I’m sure this will disappoint some fans, they can take comfort in the fact that, according to Akihiro Hino (CEO and President of LEVEL-5 Inc), more development time is required in order to deliver ...[Read More]

Victor Vran: Overkill Edition

Victor Vran was not what I was expecting. It’s an ARPG, along the lines of Diablo 3, Super Dungeon Bros or Bastion and I know you’re not supposed to judge a book by it’s cover, a game by it’s art or a man by his fart but sometimes you just do and this time I just did, from the tone of the game art I thought Gerard had thrown me in to an overly serious, Van Helsing wannabe, ...[Read More]

Horizon Zero Dawn

Well, I have since finished Horizon Zero Dawn and I absolutely loved it, unfortunately  there  is now a hole in my life were this game used to be, and what’s left to fill it? Mass Effect Andromeda? Eguh, no thank you. No, the least I can do is give this game the tongue bath of a review it deserves. Story Horizon Zero Dawn follows the story of Aloy, a huntress/archer/free-running badass, who, for a...[Read More]

Salt and Sanctuary

You know me, I like my beer cold, my TV loud and my video games harder than a priest in a playground, I loved the Dark Souls games, and I adored the lovecraftian horror that was Bloodborne. However it would seem that that love was completely one sided as each of these games beat my ass, and like the degenerate I am, I came crawling back for more. (Thank you sir, may I have another!) Salt and Sanct...[Read More]

Torment: Tides of Numenera is a classic western role-playing video game, a spiritual successor to the critically acclaimed 1999 game, Planescape: Torment. Tides of Numenera also happens to be a fully crowd funded game, in fact in was completely funded within the first six hours, proving that if nerds want something, they will throw money at it to get it. Now this may be a glowing red spot on my ne...[Read More]
