Life is Strange: Episode 4 – Dark Room Review

Episode 4 of Life is Strange begins and ends with a heavy dose of emotion, reminding me why protagonist Max Caulfield is one of my favourite game characters in a long time. But it succumbs to retreading old ground, as the penultimate episode is trapped between progressing the story and setting it up for a […]

LEGO Dimensions Review

LEGO Dimensions is the first toys-to-life effort from Traveller’s Tales and Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment and arguably, at first glance, the most enticing. The genre was established by Skylanders in 2011 and since popularised by Disney Infinity and Nintendo’s amiibos, the late-to-the-party Dimensions employs a unique twist: the player gets actual LEGO figures with the […]

Just Dance Review

Just Dance is the most innocent of modern video game franchises, and for that it’s always had my respect. The glory days of dancing games are fading, but Ubisoft keeps everyone grooving along, having fun with music. In a market saturated with shooters and violent games, it’s nice to have something a little more casual. […]

Guitar Hero Live Review

Like an aging ‘70s band that’s reformed after decades of squallering in mediocrity with hopes of recapturing ‘that magic spark’, Guitar Hero reemerges from the five-year hangover it’s been suffering since its fiery demise. But rather than just ‘getting the band back together’, Activision and developer FreeStyleGames have retooled and rebranded the franchise, swapping out […]

Game Of Thrones Episode 6 – The Ice Dragon Review

Damn you, Game of Thrones. This review does not contain any spoilers for the game. If you think you’re going to get a happy ending in this episode, think again. In typical Game of Thrones style, you’ll be beaten down and forced to submit to the sly citizens of Kings Landing and the bloody Whitehills. […]

Game characters were better in the ’90s

Back in the ’90s, I played a heap of games which were incredibly immersive. I was sucked right in, and genuinely felt for the characters on screen. Perhaps it’s because I was young, or perhaps it was due to the rose-tinted glasses I now undoubtedly wear, but I just felt like I cared much more […]

Disney Infinity 3.0 – Star Wars: Rise Against The Empire Review

The Force is strong with this one. For any Star Wars enthusiast, the Rise Against the Empire Play Set is the highlight of Disney Infinity 3.0. The Twilight of the Republic Play Set, included with the Starter Pack and based on Episodes I-III is good, but this is better. This is Star Wars. Bundled with […]

Destiny: The Taken King Review – Reevaluating One Of The Most Polarising Games Of Recent Years

It’s been a year since Bungie’s $500 million baby was released upon the masses. Destiny was a polarising grind-fest, but an admirable take on the shooter genre nonetheless. I wasn’t a massive of fan of Destiny la première, noting its incoherent and cryptic story as a missed opportunity to expand the lore’s fascinating premise. There […]

Beyond: Two Souls Review

First time was the charm. Ben Salter: As the PS4 celebrates smashing sales records and its second birthday, Sony seems intent on inundating us with last-gen reruns. Beyond: Two Souls is an interesting choice. We really liked it, as you can see below, but it wasn’t universally adored by PlayStation fans, and doesn’t benefit from […]

7 Games More Likely To Win The Lottery Than GOTY

As big as a year as it’s been in gaming, and with plenty of underrated gems to return to over the holiday break, there’s also been a fair share of disastrous offerings from some of the world’s biggest gaming brands like Call Of Duty and Medal of Honor. The disappointing thing is that some of […]
