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 »

Q1 Game Releases Preview

Where did 2014 go? While nowhere near as good as the fabled 2007, it was an acceptable year in terms of a good mix of innovative IPs and franchise follow-ups. With trepidation, it looks like 2015 may be slightly better. Here’s what game releases to look out for in Q1.   GTA V (PC) The… Read more »

Mario Kart 8

by .

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery then the Mario Kart series is practically blushing. So many derivative kart racers have vied for pole position but for the most part have stalled in the first lap. Oddly though, with Mario Kart 8 Nintendo seems to have become an imitator itself, clearly taking inspiration from… Read more »

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

With karting titles being trundled out in time for the festive period with woeful regularity and often with little effort or innovation present, it’s easy to miss genuinely good titles – especially if it’s the sequel that nobody demanded. Which is why it’s so surprising to find that Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed is a… Read more »

Carmageddon Funsize (iOS)

by .

Stainless’ mobile port of the original Carmageddon may not look as pretty as other games currently topping the charts on iOS but what it does bring is a genuinely entertaining, challenging and unique game to the platform. Older gamers will be drawn to a franchise they remember and younger gamers may get their first taste… Read more »

Test Drive 4 PlayStation review

Test Drive 4

by .

Test Drive 4 – What I believe to be one of the cheapest race games I’ve ever played. It is not cheap because it’s bad as I still have had a lot of fun with it. All the elements are fundamentally good; a brilliant line up of fast cars, good looking graphics for a PlayStation… Read more »

Trials Evolution

by .

The sequel to the much loved Trials HD has landed on Xbox Live Arcade with the full weight of expectancy and the release has shown to be exactly as the title suggests; an Evolution. Gone are the claustrophobic warehouses of the former; welcome to the open world baby! Seemingly endless landscapes are ready to play… Read more »

Mario Kart 7 [3DS]

by .

If there’s one thing that Nintendo seems to enjoy it’s going against convention.  After all, when Sony and Microsoft were trying to push the most bleeding edge technologies forward, Nintendo decided that what people really wanted to do was jump around and flail wildly in front of their televisions.  So at a time when most… Read more »
