splatoon wii u review

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 »

Q1 Game Releases Preview

by .

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 »

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 »

It’s very fashionable right now to have fluid,… Read more »

Call of Duty Advanced Warfare

by .

Another year, another Call of Duty title, and it’s about time that we really are getting something new. Hidden by the much smaller marketing budget, with no preview demos at the major expos and a press embargo on reviews until the midnight launch, Call of Duty Advanced Warfare seems to be very much a revamp… Read more »

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

by .

It may not be on the expected consoles, but another very welcome Borderlands game is just about released. This time around you are with Jack, not against, as you follow his ascent to Borderlands 2 antagonist. Rumoured and announced in quick succession in April this year  the game no longer takes place on Pandora but… Read more »

Guardians in Destiny Bungie game review

Destiny

by .

For all its hype, Destiny is far less innovative than you’d expect. Liberally taking a pinch of Mass Effect, a generous portion of Borderlands and a smattering of Dark Souls before mixing into the core Halo gameplay, it’s potentially a recipe for disaster. Surprisingly though, these ingredients work well together to form a surprisingly playable… Read more »

Bioshock Infinite Burial at Sea Episode 2 sees Elizabeth taking charge

Bioshock Infinite Burial at Sea Episode 2

by .

After Irrational Games’ latest DLC, Bioshock Infinite Burial at Sea Episode 1 left a pleasant by lacking taste in the mouth, all eyes were on this latest offering to take the downloadable series into the echelons on gaming, rather than interactive fiction. As series director Ken Levine’s last Bioshock project, Burial at Sea Episode 2… Read more »
