Upcoming PS4 Launches You Won't Want to Miss

This year has been packed with next-level releases from much-anticipated titles like CoD: Modern Warfare and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Breakpoint to cult favourite Death Stranding. I’ve got to admit, it’s been a good year so far and while every game has their low lights, I’ll be honest that I’ve pretty much loved them all.  It’s important to remember though…

Disgaea 4 Complete Plus Review – Superb Strategy

There are few franchises simultaneously as popular and as baffling to outsiders as the Disgaea series. Technically, there are only six mainline Disgaea entries, but the series is fairly labyrinthine, stretching across multiple consoles, various different editions, and literal thousands of hours of gameplay. The Disgaea franchise’s main selling point is its unutterable length; players often boast of spending hundreds…

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Review – Answering The Call

When the original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launched back in 2007, it’s fair to say it revolutionised not only the first-person shooter genre but gaming as a whole. The single-player campaign was filled with memorable moments – the ghillie suit mission, the finale, that nuclear blast – but it was the multiplayer that truly shone. Modern Warfare defined an…

Destiny Connect: Tick-Tock Travellers Review – Time Is On Your Side

The phrase “games for children” is a curious one. When I was younger, the games I played were mainly those intended for adults (yes, I know, I was very bad). The line between games for kids and games for adults was blurry, with stalwarts like Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon ostensibly being aimed at children but offering eye-watering challenge…

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III Review – The Well-Travelled Trail

It’s the responsibility of some games to push the boat out and challenge what gaming can really mean as an art form. For games like Return of the Obra Dinn, Undertale, and Papers, Please, the mission is to advance our medium and see how mechanics and storytelling can best be united on a moment-to-moment basis. Those games absolutely have their…

Ranking All 9 Resident Evil Games On PlayStation 4

The Resident Evil series of survival horror games has been terrifying us since way back in 1996. The first instalment, Resident Evil, proved massively influential, spawning a legion of imitators and sequels. Many of these games have successfully stood the test of time, while others...well...haven’t. Thankfully, Resident Evil as a series has made it to the PlayStation 4, and some…

GRID 2019 Review - Tour De Force

The history of Codemasters’ TOCA series is a long and sprawling one. It began way back in 1997 with the PlayStation’s TOCA Touring Car Championship, an odd rough diamond that’s worth a revisit just to see the origins of this high-flying franchise. Sequel after sequel followed, and before long the TOCA series had morphed into Race Driver: Grid. This being…

PlayStation 5 Officially Announced By Sony, Launches Next Year

Looks like Microsoft’s Xbox Scarlett now officially has something to be scared of. In a blog post earlier today - and in an interview with Wired magazine - Sony officially outed the existence of the PlayStation 5. We now know its name - PS5 is official - and its release window. It’ll hit the market next year, “in time for…

Tropico 6 Review - Get Down, Mr. President!

The Tropico series is an odd one. It’s been running since the first game launched for PC back in 2001 and has trundled along perfectly well ever since. These games aren’t massive hitters; they’re not in the same league as Sid Meier’s Civilization or Microsoft’s Age of Empires. Still, they attract a pretty solid fanbase and there’s clearly enough interest…

Super Neptunia RPG Review – Journey To The West

Consider, if you will, the humble JRPG. Since the “J” in the genre name stands for “Japanese”, you’d be forgiven for thinking that JRPGs necessarily must be developed by Japanese studios to be considered JRPGs. Usually, JRPG franchises don’t leave their homeland, and it’s rare even for JRPGs to be developed by different studios to the ones they’re usually helmed…

Dragon Star Varnir Review – A Star Is Born

It is traditionally agreed by critics and writers that keeping a consistent tone throughout a story is crucial to communicating the story’s key points. If your story flits wildly between comedy and tragedy, between absurdity and sense, then you’ll probably lose your audience. The best way to move between tones is to do so gradually, more of a gentle hike…

Car Mechanic Simulator Review – Mechanical Animals

Simulators are a strange and fascinating genre. If you were to go back in time and tell the gamers of the 1980s that in 2019, games would all be about building trains, driving trucks, and running a farm, they’d think you were crazy. Still, here we are in that fated year, and simulators are incredibly popular. Through a mixture of…

Should You Still Buy A PlayStation 4 In 2019?

Utawarerumono: ZAN Review - Musou Madness

Well, this is an unexpected twist. Utawarerumono is a visual novel series with some light tactical elements that’s been trundling along since way back in 2002. The first game spawned a sequel, an anime series, a manga, and a few drama CDs. Utawarerumono: ZAN represents the first foray for the series into action territory, so it’s taking a sideways leap,…

WRC 8 FIA World Rally Championship Review - Rallying Cry

Rally driving is a terrifying prospect. For those of us who’ve never tried it or never been interested in trying it, watching the drivers career around bends that should by rights launch their cars into roadside ditches is a scary experience. Luckily, we’ve got video games to help us live that fantasy vicariously (because Lord knows you wouldn’t get most…

American Fugitive Review – Driving With The Top Down

Grand Theft Auto has quite a lot to answer for. There’s only so many times a series can influence an entire sub-genre, but Grand Theft Auto has managed to do it twice. The first slew of GTA games were top-down crime sandboxes that haven’t aged well, but managed to inspire games like Retro City Rampage. The far more well-known and…
