  • Pixel Shinobi : Nine Demons of Mamoru PC Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on August 7, 2017 under 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 was developed and published by Sometimes You Studios. The game focuses on the puzzle genre aimed at all ages and abilities.

  • 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

    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.
  • 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.
  • Wonderboy: The Dragons Trap PlayStation 4 Review

    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.
  • 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.

  • Thimbleweed Park PC Review

    Thimbleweed Park is bought to us from the minds of Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick. If these names sound familiar, they were behind two of the most well known point and click adventure games; Maniac Mansion (1987) and The Secret of Monkey Island (1990) whilst working with Lucas Arts. Thimbleweed Park uses the same mechanics as these games that has become a staple for many adventure games to follow o... more.
  • Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Xbox One Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on May 10, 2017 under Xbox, Featured, Xbox One Reviews
    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.
