  • Nex Machina: Death Machine PlayStation 4 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on July 9, 2017 under Playstation, Featured, PS4 Reviews
    I remember walking into this arcade when I was a kid, it must’ve been around 1991 or so? I was living in Brisbane at the time, a suburb named Camp Hill. Carindale Shopping Centre had this new arcade, it had gone through a retrofit, so everything there was brand new and the arcade carried the biggest, newest arcade games. In the corner stood “SMASH TV”, a twin stick shooter like I’d never s... more.
  • Cladun Returns: This is Sengoku! PlayStation 4 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on July 9, 2017 under Playstation, Featured, PS4 Reviews
    Part RPG, part dungeon crawler, part retro-wannabe Zelda, Cladun Returns: This is Sengoku!, by developer Nippon Ichi Software Inc, is unfortunately never quite sure what it wants to be, presenting the player with a curious game packed with various concepts that never gel together into a cohesive, unified game and merely feel like different ‘ideas’ chucked into a blender, then poured out onto a... more.
  • God Wars Future Past PlayStation 4 Review

    I started playing “God Wars Future Past” with some trepidation. JRPG’s generally come in two flavours in my opinion, derivative and crap or really, good with only the occasional game falling in the middle ground by sheer luck (is it luck if it’s mediocre?). God Wars falls into, the former, the better end of the scale honestly, it’s just a question I guess of ‘what’ does it do well an... more.
  • Friday the 13th PC Review

    Sometimes, you have to look past a games initial faults to find the true value underneath. Now, let’s get this out of the way, I’m an unabashed Friday the 13th super fan. I grew up in the 1980s with these movies. I remember being at Plains Video in Brisbane, or other various video stores in tiny towns I lived in prior to that in the early 80s, and seeing a new chapter was about to hit. I’d f... more.
  • Tethered PlayStation 4 Review

    Ok my first caveat: TURN OFF MOTION CONTROLS. If you play Tethered with Motion controls enabled, you’re going to have a bad time, a very bad time. I get why they did it, to emulate the PSVR experience, and it’s a cute experiment, but holy crap, within 2 minutes, you feel infuriated at the inaccuracy, the wobbling, the constant realignment. It becomes a nightmare. So, let’s turn those motion... more.
  • The Surge Xbox One Review

    Let’s get this out of the way: I really, really like The Surge. If you want to stop reading now? Go ahead. I really, really like The Surge. You won’t keep reading and find me slagging it off, trashing it like I did Troll and I, that’s not going to happen, you’ll be happy to know, that after playing The Surge for hours on end I STILL go back to this one grinding away (oh yes, there’s glor... more.
  • Swarm Universe PC Review

    Swarm Universe I won’t lie frustrated me to begin with, but the more time I spent with it, it was, as Donkey said in Shrek, like an onion. No, it didn’t make me cry. It had layers. Once those layers became apparent I enjoyed the game far more than I thought I would. I do have issues with the game though, some superficial, some deeper than that. Overall, what do I think though? Read on… Co... more.
  • Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Xbox One Review

    I was sitting here, doing some work when a new game was offered to me to try. Now, the guys at AAG know I’m a sucker for two things, sniping games and open world games. Combine those two things and surely, surely, I’ll be in heaven, right? Well, mostly. Some games can do it beautifully, hell, Far Cry 3 wasn’t a sniper simulator, yet it managed to turn itself into a joyous example of arcade s... more.
  • Troll and I PlayStation 4 Review

    Trollolololololol… that’s what I expected to hear after playing this game for an hour. I had seen this sitting on the shelves of my local EB, then on PSN, I figured I was in for an interesting, surprising game. Boy was I unfortunately right in ways I was not hoping for. Troll and I comes, with minimal effort from the people at Maximum Games, with a pricing point of $90 AUS, which I can only s... more.
  • PlaneScape Torment PC Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on April 16, 2017 under Featured, PC Review
    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.
  • TurretCraft

    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.
  • Snake Pass Xbox One Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on April 3, 2017 under Featured, Xbox One Reviews
    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.
  • The Exiled

    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.
  • Dungeon Souls

    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? Are we over-inundated with roguelike experiences that they’ll honestly go for a while an... more.
  • Streets of Rogue

    0 CommentsPosted by on March 29, 2017 under Featured, PC Review
    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.
