Resident Evil Village

Just in case you’ve never come across my confessions of a horror novice at N For Nerds before, let me share with you where I’m at with the horror genre in general: I had New Pokémon Snap ready on standby as a sort of colourful, stress-free antidote as I pressed start on Capcom’s latest instalment in the Resident Evil series. To my surprise, I didn’t need it, and to my even bigger surprise, I found...[Read More]

The Uncertain – Light at the End

The Uncertain – Light at the End, is a continuation of the world “New Game Order” which was set up in “Last Quiet Day”. With one change being that we play from the viewpoint of Emily and her “friends” this time around. Although “fellow survivors” is perhaps the more appropriate term as everyone seems to hate one another. When the game begins we are introduced to “Emily” and “Park” as they sc...[Read More]

Dreadlands

Life is far from easy in the Dreadlands, on the surface it appears that pretty much everyone is out to get you in a Mad Max style wasteland. As you make your way around the map you’ll encounter settlements and events, most of which will drag you into a fight, though, some will offer you goodies for your team. Dreadlands is a turn-based tactical RPG by developer Blackfox Studios which brings ...[Read More]

King of Fighters 2002: Unlimited Match

KoF 2002: Unlimited Match is a remake of the KoF 2002 game released way back in, well 2002, but with updated features, new layouts and what may be additional characters. I never played the original, and I’m not very familiar with the KoF franchise beyond playing a few rounds with some friends back in my days of youth. Still, I’m always up for some 2D slobber knocker action, past or present, just s...[Read More]

Nioh 2: The Complete Edition

My hands were aching, I’d been playing for a couple of hours when I (finally) killed the first boss I’d come across, a giant horse headed beast, when the realisation hit me that this was just the tutorial zone, an event punctuated by the game flashing a late logo screen at me up post-fight. (Oh Fuck Yooooouu!)   The game is Nioh 2 – The Complete Edition on Steam (released 5t...[Read More]

Katamari Damacy Reroll

The funny thing is, when our editor Gerard asked me to review Katamari Damacy Reroll, I naively thought I was in for a delightful stress-free time. Having briefly played Beautiful Katamari on a friend’s Xbox years back and fondly remembering a colourful experience filled with cutesy bubble-gum objects and a soundtrack befitting a kids TV show, it was an easy sell. But this time, I sat, propped in ...[Read More]

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]
