Transformers Devastation

by .

You may or may not know by now, but I am a huge fan of Transformers. Tied with Star Wars, it’s my favourite entertainment brand and my all-time top toy franchise. Specifically Generation One Transformers, which is defined roughly as the toyline and cartoon released in the mid-80s to early 90s. When Platinum announced they… Read more »

Mad Max

by .

If you’ve seen Mad Max: Fury Road this summer, I hope you agree with me that it’s an absolute tour de force of exploitation cinema. Beautifully shot, brilliantly presented and with just enough story to justify two of the biggest, baddest car chases in cinema history. The game however is sorely lacking that bombastic Mad… Read more »

Arkham Knight; this is a strange one to review. Depending on your format of choice results may vary, and vary wildly they will!

Yes there are good games, even great games but these are frequently enhanced versions of titles readily available on the last generation of consoles. As such, while the Wii U enjoys a renaissance with Mario Kart, Smash… Read more »

Assassin’s Creed Unity

by .

The release of Assassin’s Creed Unity generated a certain amount of polarised reactionism in and around the popular games media. A sizeable portion of the negative attention Ubisoft garnered was focused around the release of this game. I’ve played and reviewed the Assassin’s Creed franchise from the beginning, so it would be fair to say that AC is as… Read more »

Far Cry 4

by .

This should be the easiest review to write with just a few simple questions- It is humbling to admit when you’re wrong, and after having very little fun playing Far Cry 2, I purposely gave Far Cry 3 the swerve until a full year after it was released. That turned out to be a huge… Read more »
