Marvel’s Midnight Suns Review: Clash of the Cards

December 2, 2022

With Marvel dominating the film, TV and gaming landscapes, it’s no surprise that someone finally got around to adapting Marvel’s Midnight Sons in some way, shape or form. Yes, you read that right; while Marvel’s original and existing comic book series is spelt a little differently, developer Firaxis Games‘ take on the Midnight Suns still […]

New Tales from the Borderlands Review: New Crew, New Vault

October 28, 2022

Upon its relatively recent reveal, New Tales from the Borderlands immediately drew me in with its familiar visuals and charm, what with the original Tales from the Borderlands being my favourite Telltale game to date.

PGA Tour 2K23 Review: The Edge of the Fairway

October 17, 2022

Let’s get this out of the way; I’m not a huge fan of golf. But in recent years, I’ve most definitely come to respect the sport. I now realise, I might never have been a huge fan in the first place, simply because I can’t swing a club to save my life. That being said, […]

Gamescom 2022: New Tales From the Borderlands revealed along with an action-packed trailer

August 24, 2022

I’m admittedly giddy writing this, as the first Tales from the Borderlands game is in my mind, a criminally underrated classic and arguably the best Borderlands game. That being said, someone at 2K of Gearbox Software must have caught on, as New Tales from the Borderlands looks to breathe new life into the franchise. Revealed […]

The Quarry Review: A trip to remember

June 23, 2022

In my opinion, developer Supermassive Games’ Until Dawn stands as one of the most underrated games of the last generation. The Quarry feels like it was made in the same way. It’s focused on telling a rather simplistic story, playing on the horror tropes and expectations that have come before. For the most part, The […]

WWE 2K Battlegrounds Review: A Shallow, Functional Brawler

September 24, 2020

As crammed as the name suggests, WWE 2K Battlegrounds introduces yet another entry to 2K’s “Grounds” series, off the heels of NBA 2K Playgrounds 2. The crux of these experiences revolves around the fact that they never take themselves too seriously. Over the top game play and stylised visuals keep this game from feeling like […]

Mafia: Definitive Edition Preview: Got the life

August 27, 2020

Though still in production at the time of writing, the Mafia: Definitive Edition remaster feels like it’s stretched between two extremes. It wants to pay homage to a well-liked yarn, ensuring players in the modern era can still experience Tommy Angelo’s rise to power. But it also has to translate game design and mechanics from […]

PGA Tour 2K21 Review: A Par is Born

August 23, 2020

Upon seeing PGA Tour 2K21’s reveal, I immediately thought back to all the great memories I had playing golfing games; a sport which I admittedly don’t care that much for. Be it Microsoft Golf, Tiger Woods’ PGA Tour, or even Outlaw Golf, (I bet you forgot that existed) there was something so satisfying about measuring […]

Hindsight really is 2020. Mafia II: Definitive Edition has become the latest in a slew of remakes and remasters to fill out this very strange year’s release calendar.

XCOM Chimera Squad Review: The war at home

April 23, 2020

2K has moved incredibly quickly on XCOM Chimera Squad. It was announced out of the blue in mid-April, and launch day was only a week later. 12 hours after the announcement, I had a review copy installed on my home PC. Fast is Chimera Squad‘s watchword. It has a much higher resting heart rate than […]

NBA 2K20 Review: Still in strong form

September 18, 2019

The NBA 2K series has become for many, including myself, the definitive basketball gaming experience. While each iteration tries to evolve in interesting ways, NBA 2K20 remains an evolutionary experience rather than a revolutionary one. In many ways, NBA 2K20 is superior to any of its predecessors, presenting stellar basketball gameplay paired with authentic presentation […]

Borderlands 3 Review: That sure is a lot of guns

September 17, 2019

My relationship with Borderlands might be different from that of other people, I don’t know. What I do know is that, contrary to a lot of other games I tend to like, I don’t come to Borderlands for the story or the characters or the world. I show up because Gearbox Software makes an idiot […]

In early May, I was among the first in the world to play Borderlands 3 at the official gameplay reveal event in Los Angeles.

Borderlands: GOTY Edition is f***ing gorgeous

April 15, 2019

They say you always remember your first time, but the original Borderlands was determined to prove this wrong. With a muted colour palette, confusing map system and generic post-apocalyptic worlds, it was good – but not memorable. Borderlands GOTY Edition is memorable! The original game has been given a complete facelift with this remaster, and […]

Civilization VI: Gathering Storm Review: Never build your house on sand

March 6, 2019

I love getting a new Civilization expansion. Each one is a near-complete revision of the game as the community has come to know it, a wave of changes large and small that address mechanical shortfalls and community concerns, while adding complex new systems into its existing web of other complex systems. With Civilization VI: Gathering […]
