Game Review: NBA 2K24 takes smaller, yet confident steps forward

September 21, 2023

While I appreciate each yearly NBA 2K iteration, it’s usually for something different each and every time. Be it a new and exclusive mode, deeper customisation and progression or new and enhanced gameplay mechanics, there’s generally something that keeps me around for the year to come. NBA 2K24 certainly provides enough in terms of variety […]

It’s no secret that Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart already shines as both a sequel to the long-running PlayStation franchise and a window into the next generation of gaming.

Game Review: F1 23 feels like a fantastic step in the right direction

June 22, 2023

I’m a huge Formula 1 fan and tend to jump into the yearly F1 release for some additional action during the current season. While I certainly enjoyed F1 22, I felt it was lacking something, and at times holding back. As the last thing I really enjoyed about the franchise came in the form of […]

Game Review: Diablo 4 is the best the series has ever been

June 13, 2023

I had never really played much of the Diablo series. While I had played each of them in some way or at some point in my life, they’ve never really stuck with me. Be it the ageing mechanics and visuals of Diablo and Diablo II on the PC, to the early days of Diablo III, […]

May 23, 2023

Lego 2K Drive came as a surprise to me when it was revealed.

April 27, 2023

The time has finally arrived. After what feels like an eternity, Dead Island 2 has finally made its way to our homes, bringing with it waves of zombies to dismember in gory fashion. In many ways, Dead Island 2 is a solid action title, packing in brutal melee combat and a consistent sense of humour. […]

April 12, 2023

It’s no secret that The Last of Us Part 1 has released on PC to some extremely negative reactions, mainly due to its buggy and at times, game-breaking performance issues.

Game Review: Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty feels both fresh and familiar at the same time

March 14, 2023

Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty comes to us from developer Team Ninja; yes, the same Team Ninja behind both Nioh and Nioh 2.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales PC Review: Same Stylish Web

December 20, 2022

Spider-Man has always been my favourite superhero, so you can imagine my love extends to Miles Morales. Much like my original review of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, this PC port holds many of the same comments and criticisms, even if it’s a much shinier and polished version of its original PlayStation 4 release. It’s definitely […]

Evil West Review: Old School Vampire Slayin’

November 25, 2022

Vampires in the Wild West. We’re not sure it gets any better than that either. I would liken Evil West to the best parts of both old school horror films and exploitation films of the 70s and 80s.
