2004’s Resident Evil 4 was, and is still considered by many to be one of the best games ever made. It changed how action games played for a decade, effectively ended ‘Survival Horror’ and stapled Resident Evil as one of gaming’s most prized properties. Unfortunately the two games that followed RE4 failed to build upon the successes for Four, and the series was left to rot … Continue reading This Isn’t A Review: Resident Evil 7
As any self-respecting 20-something, I spent entirely too much time playing Roller Coaster Tycoon as a youth. Even today the franchise is the leader in the management sim genre, but for how much longer? There’s a new park in town, and its name is Planet Coaster. Planet Coaster is a giant sandbox that wants you, its player to go dive headfirst into using its extensive creation tools. It … Continue reading This Isn’t a Review: Planet Coaster
The original Shadow Warrior reboot was one of the surprises of 2013. The game was irrelevant, stupid, brash and a hell of a lot of fun. With its no holds barred take on first person shooting, and a general willingness to ‘fuck it’, I was excited about news of a sequel. Unfortunately, Shadow Warrior 2 slips up in ways I wasn’t expecting. I went into … Continue reading This Isn’t a Review: Shadow Warrior 2

F1 2016 is … Continue reading This Isn’t A Review: F1 2016
There’s a reason I don’t play many games online. I don’t like ruining other people’s fun, I don’t want to let the team down, I don’t want to be ‘that guy’ who drags the entire team into a loss based on my abject incompetence. So when Overwatch was announced I largely ignored it. It wasn’t for me. So why am I having such a blast playing … Continue reading This Isn’t a Review: Overwatch
The Division isn’t a particularly bad game. After a while you might begin to appreciate its sluggish shooting mechanic, you’ll maybe start to enjoy its bullet-spongy enemies, you might even like running around the gorgeous depiction of a ruined and broken New York City. Unfortunately for Ubisoft however, The Division is a game that’s a bore. In a world where it’s nearest competitor (Destiny) thrills with … Continue reading This Isn’t a Review: The Division
Two years after the then game-jam entry took the PC world by storm, SUPERHOT is back as a fully fledged video game, and guess what? I think it might be the best game I’ll play all year.
