It’s been such a long time since I played Planescape: Torment, I forgot what a glorious experience it was. I don’t think it’d be right to review the actual game itself for this review, after all, that game was made way back in 1999, and Beamdog isn’t so much remaking the game as much as giving it a well needed spitshine to bring it into the modern era. So let’s take a look at how that ef... more.

åYou know that feeling you have, when you really want to like a game, but you just cannot bring yourself to because there’s far too much wrong with it? That’s me with TurretCraft, the new game from developer Antropi. I want to like this game, I do. But competitive Tower Defence games are nothing new, I’ve been playing them since the days of Warcraft 3 and to be honest, I’ve been playing m... more.

As a kid, on the NES, Snake Rattle’N’Roll was one of my favourite games, I dug the hell out of it. Playing it with my mate, 2 player, was a blast. Snake Pass, at this point, is scratching that itch for me and then some. Gameplay I’ve never ever played a Snake simulator? But if someone ever makes one? This is the game they want to look towards to figure out how the hell to do it. The cont... more.

Imitation is said to be the sincerest form of flattery, after all, when you’re trying to be Diablo, why not copy Diablos best aspects? Well, that would be great if Diablo’s best aspects were what you were copying. Unfortunately for The Exiled, it merely copies some of Diablo’s worst imitators. From terrible net code, to uninspired combat, to bland, boring graphics, The Exiled is an exercise ... more.

Blackshell Games is branching out, now they bring us a new game from Lamina Studios called Dungeon Souls, a roguelike experience involving a warrior plundering the depths of a dungeon in search of treasure and eventually death in hope of… are we at the stage World War 2 simulators reached a decade ago yet?

Streets of Rogue comes to us from developer Matt Dabrowski, via publisher tinyBuild. A seemingly simple, overhead 16-bit beat-em-up, I won’t lie, my first impression was ‘Oh god not another pixelart game’. That was, until I got into playing, then the chaos reigned. Streets of Rogue is *fun*. Definitely fun, it’s got a tongue in cheek sense of humour, a wicked sense of over the top chaos ab... more.

Mass Effect: Andromeda has been 5 years in the making a product of the Mass Effect series most of us have grown to love. The series has evolved from the linear RPG elements and space exploration to building characters that are as diverse as space itself, Mass Effect 3 finished with a three coloured button choice which left fans enraged with Bioware essentially throwing those multitude of choices f... more.

I’m going to preface this review by saying I love these kinds of games, and my addiction to these kinds of top down space exploration games goes right back to 1992 when I first played Epic Megagames SOLAR WINDS, a fantastic game that stoked my imagination about these sorts of games. Imagine years later when I picked up a copy of Wing Commander Privateer and the whole genre came to life again in ... more.

The first 10 minutes of Breath of the Wild cemented my feelings about this new iteration of the Zelda franchise. Never has Nintendo undergone such a massive scale open world title like this and if this is just the tip of the iceberg I am unabashedly excited for what comes next. From your first few moments in Hyrule you truly begin to understand just how “open” this world really is and the choi... more.

With a plethora of amazing games being released on every console over the past few months it is possible that you may have missed the launch of a little gem named I Am Setsuna. The best way to describe I Am Setsuna is to say that it is very similar in gameplay and mechanics to Super Nintendo Classic JRPG’s such as Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy II and Secret of Mana. If you are looking for someth... more.

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock or sleeping for the last year in The Shrine of Resurrection, you are no doubt aware that Nintendo have bought out a new console and along with it a new Legend of Zelda game. The first Legend of Zelda appeared on the original Nintendo system in 1986, with nineteen main games since then (including Breath of The Wild) and a few spin off titles, it’s arguably... more.

When I first saw gameplay of 1,2 Switch I was oddly intrigued. So when I got my switch I was eager to pick up this game, what ensued was a large amount of disappointment.1,2 Switch is not that bad of a game, it just leaves you wanting more. No matter how you look at it, this game is purely a tech demo that shows off the features of the Nintendo Switch and ultimately should have been included as a ... more.
