5 Worst Video Games of 2019

Well you’ve heard Laura’s thoughts on Tetris 99 and how it’s a hidden gem of a game; we’ve had Jude discuss the many games he’s enjoyed throughout the year! And while that’s all well and good I think we can all agree there have been more than a few stinkers. And given that World War III will likely kick off any day now I think we’re all in need of catharsis, a good purge of ill will or to put it i...[Read More]

Best Games of 2019: Jude’s Top 5

5) Crash Team Racing Nitro Fuelled My first choice was an easy one. Although 2019 hasn’t been a great year, with only a handful of big releases, there is comfort in revisiting the classics that are brought up to the modern age. This brought back some very good memories, and getting to see a game from my childhood get a new paintjob for current-gen consoles is certainly a treat. There is a lo...[Read More]

Best Games of 2019: Tetris 99

This year I had one of the best birthdays ever. No, I didn’t have a huge party, no grand gestures, I simply had a day off work, a cake fashioned out of Krispy Kremes, and a shiny new Nintendo Switch with Tetris 99 to slob out on the sofa with all day. It. Was. Ace. So, it’s probably partially happy donut memories and partly that it is just so bloody addictive that this battle royale re-imagining o...[Read More]

Top 5 Snow Levels in Video Games

It’s that time of year again folks, a time of over indulgence and frivolity, a time of family and friends. Of course what with an impeachment looming, Brexit being in its 56th year and the death of Peter “Chewbacca” Mayhew, I can understand if you’re not feeling festive. But fret ye not, I have the answer, and would you believe the answer is video games? That’s right, 5 snowy Levels that vaguely f...[Read More]

The Last of Us Remastered (Revisited)

If you read my blog earlier this year in which I cheated on my girl Lara Croft, you’ll know I have recently completed an entire run through of the Uncharted series. So, in the spirit of “if you’re going to do something bad you might as well do it right,” I figured it only proper that The Last of Us should be the next title on my hit list. Plus, with The Last of Us 2 launch date getting pushed back...[Read More]

AVICCII Invector

Much like the game, this review will be quite short. It was created in support of the man himself, DJ Avicii, or Tim Bergling, after his death was felt across the world. I later found out that he was actually involved in its production, which was then completed and released to honour his memory, with the proceeds being funded to help support suicide awareness causes. This was very touching. It con...[Read More]

The Division 2

The Division 2 takes place seven months after a bio-terror attack in the original game where a bunch of bastards released a potent strain of smallpox in New York City because of some reasons. Fearing wide spread panic and social collapse, the United States government, in all its stupid idiot wisdom, activated a contingent of domestic sleeper agents known as “The Division”, who have car...[Read More]

Luigi’s Mansion 3

Given it’s the plumber’s third mysterious invitation to a crooked looking mansion, you would think Luigi might be a little more sceptical about hopping aboard a bus to a place called “The Last Resort” with his merry bunch of Mushroom Kingdom chums. But as quickly as Princess Peach can settle in with her stack of 10 pink suitcases, things of course go from cute to creepy as King Boo traps your frie...[Read More]

Uncharted Vs. Tomb Raider

I’m about to say the thing you’re not supposed to say. My nine-year-old self who would cut cardboard dual pistols out of cereal boxes and somersault off my bunk bed would feel betrayed. Current me, who looked high and low to find Croft Apple Larazade like it was bottled from the Fountain of Youth, doesn’t want to say it out loud. But here goes … I might actually prefer Uncharted to Tomb Raider. (&...[Read More]

Red Dead Redemption 2

As we know, Rockstar Studios love to surpass all our greatest expectations and bring nothing short of near perfection to our screens. Try and imagine if all the greatest Westerns were put into one game, times it by a thousand, and you have RDR2. It may have been released last year but I have taken my time in playing this game and enjoyed every waking moment of travelling around the expansive lands...[Read More]

Retroactive Microtransactions

I never thought I’d be on this side of the argument, the side that warns people to “be wary of games”, the side the cries “think of the children”, but here we are, I hope you’re happy AAA games industry! I love video games, hell; I co-founded a company dedicated to them. As a young child I enjoyed playing video games with my brother, something we still bond over to this day. As a teenager they pro...[Read More]

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was the latest gift given to us from known developers FromSoftware. This is a third-person action RPG based in a re-imagined 16th century Sengoku period Japan, and it retains much of what made the other games in the series popular with a strong cult following, such as the Dark Souls trilogy. You are a shinobi with a name, face and backstory already laid out for you, rathe...[Read More]
