Fimbul Review - Battle Of The Gods

Norse mythology is fertile ground for video games. All the drama and violence of poetic Norse sagas translates perfectly to the immediacy and storytelling heft of a great game; even the language of the Norse peoples lends itself well to gaming (“Gotterdammerung”, “Ragnarok”, et cetera). With this in mind, it’s not unreasonable to expect studios to take inspiration from the…

Dead Or Alive 6 Review - Wanted Dead Or Alive

As a fighting game franchise, Dead or Alive has been unfairly overlooked across its twenty-three year (!) existence. The series has perhaps been better-known for its reliance on fan service and its attempt to titillate its players than for its extremely solid core mechanics, and while it’s true that developer Team Ninja has probably not done itself any favours in…

Anthem Review - Mech My Day

From Pacific Rim to MechWarrior, pop culture has a justifiable fascination with human-piloted mechs. Japanese anime is replete with mech pilots and their adventures, and although movies rarely tread this hallowed ground it has been done at least once or twice (see Transformers and Real Steel for ancillary examples of the genre at work). Who among us hasn’t at some…

Intruders: Hide and Seek Review - Virtual Insanity

Remember Night Trap? If you don’t, it was an “interactive movie game” released in 1992, back in the Sega CD era. The premise of the game was simple, if not a little problematic: you play as a special agent with access to a bank of cameras watching a house full of young girls. Said girls are in danger from robbers,…

VR Casino Games: An Untapped Market For PlayStation Game Developers?

The potential applications of VR tech are absolutely staggering. From healthcare to military training, from piloting simulations to cinema, there really are no avenues that VR couldn’t comfortably go down. We could even soon see VR simulations with advanced haptic feedback in which players physically can take part in the experiences they’re viewing through their headset. It’s no exaggeration to…

Monster Energy Supercross 2 Review – Monster Madness

Motorcycle racing is at once terrifying and exhilarating as a prospect. There’s nothing more seat-of-the-pants than hurtling through open terrain on what is essentially some metal attached to two wheels. Every jump, every hitch and every turn becomes a life-or-death prospect for the inexperienced rider, and every single encounter with another racer could turn into something that future generations will…

SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy DLC Characters Review - Tag, You're It

When additional characters are added to a fighting game, it must be an absolute nightmare to balance them. So much development work goes into making sure that each fighter is able to battle the others with no game-breaking bugs or glitches occuring, and then there's the matter of actual gameplay balance; who's overpowered, who's underpowered and who's flat-out broken. Adding…

DiRT Rally 2.0 Review - Through The DiRT 

Keeping a franchise going through multiple console generations must be a mammoth task. Gaming franchises come and go according to the fickle whims of the public; it's not uncommon to see yesterday's critical and commercial darling consigned to the annals of history because a better game came along, or simply because demand for such a franchise shriveled and died through…

The Walking Dead: The Final Season Episode 3 Review – Dead And Loving It

It’s an unfortunate fact of gaming life that some games are overshadowed by their circumstances. Duke Nukem Forever may be a mediocre-to-poor effort in the final analysis, but its actual quality arguably doesn’t matter – its status as vapourware completely destroys any chance it had at a fair whack on the critical table. Similarly, The Last Guardian is the long-awaited…

Steins Gate Elite Review - All Things In Time

It’s taken a long time for the visual novel to become well-regarded in the mainstream Western press. Sterling examples of the genre such as the Ace Attorney series did nothing to allay many people’s perceptions that visual novels were inescapably niche; Ace Attorney itself features perhaps more adventure game-style mechanics than the traditional visual novel does, and many other examples…

Franchises like Uncharted and Wipeout were visible on the console, and its PS4 Remote…

PS4 Controller Not Charging? Here’s How To Fix It

When the Xbox 360, PS3 and Nintendo Wii were released, all three came with wireless controllers as standard. This development was incredibly significant; until this point, wireless controllers were nothing more than a novelty, and here was the industry adopting them as the default mode of control. Suddenly, gamers didn’t have to sit right next to their TVs, accidentally yanking…
