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 »

The Arkham Knight Armour

Arkham Knight

by .

Arkham Knight; this is a strange one to review. Depending on your format of choice results may vary, and vary wildly they will! I do not want to bring up the PC issues, as they have been documented en masse by the hooting 1% who talk about games on the Internet, and who have positively… Read more »

Splatoon

by .

I’ve recently concocted a bit of a theory about Nintendo. As soon as Nintendo get onto something, it pretty much signifies that that thing in particular is over. Nintendo have historically taken the smarter path, letting other companies develop technology or methodology, then sweeping in later to refine said technology. This explains Ninty’s slow adoption… Read more »

Bloodborne

by .

There’s a very compelling argument that as yet, the PS4 and Xbox One lack a true must-have title. 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 »

Bayonnetta 2 review

Bayonnetta 2

by .

It’s cards on the table time. This reviewer never actually liked the original Bayonnetta and couldn’t understand why people adored it. Whilst undeniably stylish, it was saddled with an unlikeable main character, overt and pandering objectification of the female form and instant death QTEs which came from nowhere. In every way it was a ridiculously… Read more »

Watch Dogs

by .

If you read my Black Flag review last year you’ll see I ended the review with something of a positive postulation about the direction which Ubisoft Montreal are taking with their new developments. With Far Cry 4 footage slowly emerging online and the Assassin’s Creed franchise entering higher echelons you can’t blame me for my… Read more »

The bonfire in Dark Souls II

Dark Souls II

by .

Everyone remembers their first time.  For this reviewer it was a moment born of optimism and stupidity.  Sneaking up upon a huge blue monster that was minding its own business, a quick sword slash was countered by being grabbed and quite literally consumed, followed by the soon to be familiar message ‘You Died’. For just… Read more »
