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 »

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 »

November Roundup

by .

Big releases in November was to the whole of 2014 as the metaphorical bus is to the old analogy. We’ve waited practically a year for an influx of major titles to be released and here comes a whole shed load of them at once. And much like the state of the public transport system here… 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 »

True to form in the next twelve weeks we have… Read more »

Gravity Rush

by .

It really looked as if Sony were going to make the same handheld mistakes as Nintendo – namely incremental updates or ports of existing titles. And whilst there’s nothing wrong with having new versions of Lumines or WipEout, the Vita is crying out for something to really show it off. Which makes it so surprising… Read more »

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time [N64]

by .

Assumptions will be made below, as if you haven’t played, let alone heard of Ocarina of Time, you must have stumbled onto a gaming website by accident. If so, welcome to you! There is earnestly nothing new to say about The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, no hyperbole that hasn’t been used over and… Read more »

Okami

by .

In the entertainment industry, critical acclaim and commercial success rarely go hand in hand.  Whilst this is arguably less true in the games industry, it nevertheless remains the case that an original title, no matter how good it is, will frequently be overlooked in favour of a recognised IP with a number after its title. … Read more »

Portal 2: Peer Review [DLC]

by .

Although big fan of the majority of Valve’s offerings, I’ve come to regard Portal 2 co-op under the guise of How to lose friends and alienate people. After a few months delay, the first of the promised free DLC packs is available as of October 4th and it is just as infuriating, maddening and rewarding… Read more »
