  • Agents of Mayhem PlayStation 4 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on September 7, 2017 under Playstation, Featured, PS4 Reviews
    As a kid, I used to wake up Saturday mornings to watch cartoons like Transformers, Thunder Cats, He Man and a whole range of others. It’s interesting, because while I didn’t ever see anything directly like Agents of Mayhem as per se, it really struck that nostalgic chord of what a Saturday morning cartoon was. Well, if it were littered with F-bombs and sexual innuendo that is. Agents of Mayhem... more.

  • Space Colony Review

    When I first booted up Space Colony, I was a bit taken aback. The interface was raw, the graphics were very 1990s in their plastic like presentation and the whole thing seemed slightly off? And then I realised what it was, I’d played this before! Firefly Studios had remastered Space Colony, an older game from 2003, and updated it with a spiffy Steam Edition, bringing it up to somewhat modern day... more.
  • Get Even Xbox One Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on August 8, 2017 under Xbox, Featured, Xbox One Reviews
    What a strange animal of a game. What a strange way to begin a review. What a strange feeling you have when playing Get Even. What a strange game in general. Get Even, coming to us from “The Farm 51” and published by Namco Bandi, tries to be many things, shooter, mystery, puzzlebox game and honestly while never completely succeeding at any of them, never truly fails either and still delivers a... more.
  • Pixel Shinobi : Nine Demons of Mamoru PC Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on August 7, 2017 under Featured, Other, PC Review
    Like an actual Ninja, this game snuck up behind me, grabbed me unawares and demanded its presence be known, but only after sitting in the proverbial shadows at AAG a while. It bide its time before it struck, but when it did, boy oh boy did it leave its mark on me and then some. Pixel Shinobi: Nine Demons of Mamoru, comes to us from developer Ametist studio, a group I’d never honestly heard of be... more.
  • 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

    0 CommentsPosted by on July 9, 2017 under Playstation, Featured, PS4 Reviews
    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.
  • RiME PlayStation 4 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on June 29, 2017 under Playstation, Featured, PS4 Reviews
    Rime has been in production by developer Tequila Works and published by Grey Box for a long time now and fans will not be disappointed. Where most games are text heavy or require a prolonged exposure to Google to understand what is going on, Rime takes a step sideways allowing the visually stunning environment and effects to lay the groundwork for the player to dive into this unique setting simila... more.
  • Birthdays The Beginning PlayStation 4 Review

    Developed by TOYBOX Inc., a company founded by Yasuhiro Wada and Arc Systems Works comes Birthdays: The Beginnings (Birthdays). Published for the western audience by NIS studios, Birthdays is affectionately known as a garden simulator for a good reason but I’d prefer to hail it as a “god sim”. You the player are the creator and destroyer of your very own eco system, Birthdays empowers you w... more.
  • Friday the 13th PC Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on June 19, 2017 under Featured, 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

    0 CommentsPosted by on June 19, 2017 under Playstation, Featured, PS4 Reviews
    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.
  • Highs and Lows of E3 2017

    0 CommentsPosted by on June 17, 2017 under News, Featured
    Another year gone with another E3 passed, normally there is plenty of focus on the winners and losers of the event. We slap a big tick on one company while complaining how the other two big players failed to impress us. This year however I don't feel like we had one single winner, I'm still not sure if that's a good thing or not. One thing that can be certain of is that while one company alone did... more.

    Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception is a SJRPG published by “Atlus” (Atlas), the story is based around an amnesiac who awakens in a hostile world woken by a young school-like girl named Kuon. The start of the story is heavily text based before throwing you into vast battles, storyline choices and even the odd political machinations. The protagonist Haku awakes from what feels like a dream and fin... 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.
