  • WRC 7 PlayStation 4 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on October 4, 2017 under Playstation, Featured, PS4 Reviews
    I can’t say I have an extensive history with Rally games, although I did adore the Colin McRae series on the PS1 fiercely so. Being introduced to a game where the objective was not to speed past your opponent, but to take care of yourself on the track, to know every intricate detail you could ahead of time and then to scream in frustration as that all goes out the window and you watch your beaut... more.
  • Knack 2 PlayStation 4 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on October 4, 2017 under Playstation, Featured, PS4 Reviews
    The first Knack never grabbed me, honestly. You know those games where everything is fine, nothing is particularly wrong with it, yet it never quite grabs you? For me, that was Knack. Now, Knack 2 has come along and from the moment it opens, to my second play through, this time cooperatively, I’m captivated with this game in a way I never was with part one. Knack 2, is just so much fun it’s ri... more.
  • 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.
  • Energy Cycle Playstation 4 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on August 7, 2017 under Playstation, PS4 Reviews
    Energy Cycle was developed and published by Sometimes You Studios. The game focuses on the puzzle genre aimed at all ages and abilities. Gameplay The premise of the game is simple, line up a cluster of lights that appear on-screen then make sure that they are all the same colour to proceed. If I was to describe Energy Cycle it would have a Solitaire vibe that you will play in short spells duri... more.
  • Energy Balance Playstation 4 Review

    Developed and published by Sometimes You Studio’s Energy Balance is a Maths puzzle game in which the aim is to balance out the equation in order that it balances the answer. This title is very much an indie casual game in which during a mission your spaceship has a system fail requiring you to solve many equations to get the power going. Gameplay This title has a basic premise yet is quite h... 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

    0 CommentsPosted by on June 26, 2017 under Playstation, Featured, PS4 Reviews
    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.
  • 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.
  • Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception PlayStation 4 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on May 25, 2017 under Playstation, Featured, PS4 Reviews
    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.
  • Wonderboy: The Dragons Trap PlayStation 4 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on May 16, 2017 under Playstation, Featured, PS4 Reviews
    Wonderboy came with my Sega Master system which rotated around with Alex and Kidd and Sonic the Hedgehog. Between the mesmerising musical tones to the challenging levels it was something which I continued to play until the dreaded day I sold my gaming collection to fund an end of school trip (wish I kept the game). The reboot by Lizardcube and developed by DotEmu recreates the same nostalgia I had... more.
  • Troll and I PlayStation 4 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on May 3, 2017 under Playstation, Featured, PS4 Reviews
    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.
  • Mass Effect: Andromeda

    0 CommentsPosted by on March 29, 2017 under Featured, PS4 Reviews
    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.
