Review: Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town takes you back on the Switch… in 3D!

August 20, 2020

Harvest Moon was the shiz when I was growing up, I played the very first Game Boy version and basically played every handheld iteration afterwards. I loved that game to bits and it’s no wonder that I was immediately drawn to Stardew Valley. Now reverting back to its original Japanese name, Story of Seasons released […]

Hunt: Showdown Review: Monstrous Fun

March 2, 2020

My first experience with Hunt: Showdown sent shivers up my spine. Navigating a Louisiana bayou in search of a giant spider, the trail led me to an abandoned factory. Upon entering, it was clear; I had found my target. Cobwebs covered the walls and walkways, crunching underfoot as I scoured every inch of the place. […]

Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince Review: Laughs, puzzles and beauty

October 17, 2019

Rarely do you find a puzzle role-playing game where the abilities you use to succeed are as eccentric as its cast of characters. Rarer still is the opportunity to share that experience with another player. This is why the Trine series is so important to me. With Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince, developer Frozenbyte has […]

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has sparked both anticipation and controversy since its reveal earlier this year.

World War Z Review: Swarms of Flawed Fun

April 25, 2019

First things first: World War Z wasn’t that bad of a movie. Released in a time when the undead genre had reached peak saturation, resurrecting the license with a worthy yet flawed video game adaptation a full six years later seems a strange move to say the least. That this IP resurrection is hitting shelves […]

July 9, 2018

I had the pleasure of diving back into the way back machine with the old overgrown, orange marsupial last week with Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy on the Nintendo Switch. Crash, despite a few niggling flaws, it still holds up magnificently after 22 years thanks to its wonderful remaster of the very first 3 games in […]

Games Review: The Crew 2 (PS4, 2018) is a fun ride, but fails to transform the genre into anything new

July 8, 2018

The Crew 2 immediately presents itself as a different kind of racer, drawing on its arcade-like mechanics of the past, while infusing they with new mechanics encouraging transformation and an even bigger variety of vehicles to choose from, across the land, sea and sky. Seems like an improvement right? Well, not exactly. While The Crew […]

Games Review: Dark Souls Remastered (PS4, 2018): If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it

May 31, 2018

The classic game that started it all has returned, this time to the next generation of consoles. It’s hard to define just what makes the Dark Souls series so damn good, but upon playing the original 7 years after it’s 2011 release, I couldn’t think of a better way to return to one of the […]

Games Review: Conan Exiles (PS4, 2018): A flawed yet engaging survival experience

May 16, 2018

Let me tell you a story of a man destined for greatness. A barbarian, brutally carving his way through a desolate and dangerous land, where only the strongest will survive.

Games Review: Monster Hunter World (PS4, 2018): Shining, Shimmering, Splendid

January 30, 2018

I’m ashamed to say that I’m a latecomer to the Monster Hunter franchise, with my first taste of monster hunting goodness coming late last year in the delightful Monster Hunter Stories.

June 24, 2017

The time has arrived. Telltale’s ambitious third season of their critically acclaimed Walking Dead series has come to a close with From the Gallows.

Video Game Review: The Walking Dead: A New Frontier – Thicker than Water (PS4, 2017) is Telltale at their very best

May 16, 2017

Perhaps I was a little harsh in my review of Above the Law. If Telltale’s Walking Dead games were judged on their level of interaction, then they would probably garner average scores across the board. I still maintain that the last episode served as a major turning point and definitely felt like the culmination of […]

Video Game Review: The Walking Dead: A New Frontier – Above the Law (PS4, 2017)

April 25, 2017

Above the Law goes to great lengths to answer a litany of questions we’ve all been harbouring since episode 1. In that sense, it displays perfect pacing and timing, drawing out mysteries and cashing in on them at the right time. However, the third episode puts into perspective just how out of control you can […]

Video Game Review: Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands (PS4, 2017) is fun with friends but feels strangely unpolished

March 15, 2017

Ubisoft’s latest incarnation of their Ghost Recon series is entertaining as hell. And at times, it’s for all the wrong reasons. Whether Ubisoft is cognizant of it’s reputation at the moment or not, their lacklustre games have become an expectation in the industry now. Watch Dogs 2 (admittedly developed by a different team) took painstaking effort […]

Video Games Preview: Conan Exiles shows promise, but has a long walk across the desert ahead of it

March 2, 2017

If you have played any open world survival genre in the last 2 years, you’ve got a good idea how your time with Conan Exiles, even in this early state, will play out.
