  • Cuphead Xbox One Review

    Rubber hose animation was an animation style prevalent in the 1930’s, it was primarily standardized in the American animation industry where it allowed characters to be drawn quickly, without having to articulate leg or arm joints, instead allowing on ‘rubber hose’ like limbs that simply curved. You may remember cartoons such as the very early Disney cartoons being like this, carrying with t... more.
  • GLO PC Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on October 18, 2017 under Featured, Other, PC Review
    I don’t generally poorly implemented gimmicks in games, gameplay mechanics implemented to cover up subpar, ill thought out games that rely on one aspect to be interesting. With that in mind, I give you GLO on Steam! The latest piece of shovel ware to hit the platform, this time from developer Chronik Spartan. Gameplay: A simple platform puzzler, GLO has you controlling a square that must nav... more.

    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

    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

    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.
  • Get Even Xbox One Review

    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.
  • 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.

  • Nex Machina: Death Machine PlayStation 4 Review

    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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    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.
