  • 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.

    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

    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.
  • 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.

    Paradigm is a point and click adventure game from Australian developer Jacob Janerka. It was crowdfunded on Kickstarter back in 2014 and has just been released.

Gameplay You play as Paradigm a mutated h... more.
  • Thimbleweed Park PC Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on May 16, 2017 under Featured, Other, 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

    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.
  • Dungeons of Chaos Mobile Review

    Dungeons of Chaos is a retro-style 2D RPG made in the Unity engine for tablet/IOS devices that takes you on an epic journey with numerous spells, skills and tactical combat to employ in order to win the battle against evil. After having a chat with the developer Volker Elzner who stated that it wasn’t until Richard Garriott (Ultima fame) tweeted his enjoyment for the game that suddenly it hit ho... 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.
  • Causality

    I seriously feel like these last few games have sent my mind around the bend. Trying to figure out time mechanics, cause and effect, temporal rifts… I should be granted a goddamn sonic screwdriver and a T.A.R.D.I.S. At the very least a DeLorean with a flux capacitor! So the last game or two I’ve looked at were simple in nature in terms of visuals, their mechanics wavering between simple and su... more.
  • The Pasture PC Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on January 15, 2017 under Featured, PC Review
    Having just finished playing the beta of The Pasture, I have to say it's........ interesting. The Pasture is on PC via Steam and flows between an art simulator mixed with a failed protagonist drifting between different genres and control styles. The game concept felt very simple yet provides a range of different emotions while playing from hopelessness to a vague understanding of art which I’m ... more.
  • Justice League / Power Rangers # 1 Review

    Publisher: DC/BOOM! Studios Writer: Tom Taylor Art: Stephen Byrne Cover: Karl Kerschl Year: 2017 The Justice League are my favourite superhero team, and I loved The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers as a kid. Or more accurately, I liked the concept…it’s a show that hasn’t aged terribly well. However I thought it pretty cool to see these two teams paired up together in this comic. OR IS IT? ... more.
  • Age of Decadence PC Review

    “Age of Entitlement is over” Age of Decadence is an turn based Role Playing Game by an indie developer Iron Tower Studios that I stumbled across on Steam for a cheeky 10 dollars while on holidays. Let me warn you, unlike most games you will be unable to complete every possible play-through or ending with one character or playing style. Age of Decadence includes multiple endings, stat requirem... more.
