A lot has happened over the past 14 months which has disrupted sporting events across the globe. Sports fans are slowly starting to get back into their viewing schedules and gaming companies are starting to release titles that cover the now-infamous 20/21 season. It has been two years since Milestone released their hit title MotoGP... Continue Reading →
The year is 2004. Teenage me had spent the last few years enthralled with games like Serious Sam, Quake, and Doom. They were far too entertaining. I needed more. I remember sitting down on a warm summer's evening to install the next chapter in my gaming adventures: "Painkiller". This high-octane slaughter-fest from developers "People Can... Continue Reading →
Admittedly, I've had multiple failed attempts at getting into skateboarding whilst growing up, me and my Star Wars themed board were never fit for the big leagues. Whilst I could never live up to the pros in real life, I fondly remember feeling like the man himself playing the Tony Hawk series back in the early 2000s, and now some 20 years later, they're back. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 is a complete remaster of the original two titles packed into one game with all of the original maps and game modes with some new additions for good measure. It's a mix of old world meets new with similar gameplay and design that feels like a blast to the past, draped in state of the art graphics thanks to the new next gen update. It brings a new lease of life to a cult classic of the PS2 era, and whether you're a seasoned veteran of the originals or new to the series, there's a whole lot of fun to be had.
I can safely say that for a long time my biggest childhood fantasy was to pilot an X-wing from Star Wars, ever since first watching the mesmerising battle for the Death Star I'd dreamt to be able to play a Star Wars space combat game, and some years later, EA answered the call. Star Wars: Squadrons is exactly that, a fully fledged space combat game which is the new addition to EA's growing arsenal of titles for the franchise. It offers fast paced combat and beautiful visuals that at times really do make you feel like you're right there in the cockpit and it is a truly amazing feeling, but a pretty lacklustre campaign and slow paced gameplay bring the experience down to earth.
A notable resident of Earth once wrote that "Nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes." Residents of Pandora have a similar expression: "Nothing can be said to be certain, except death and explosions...and blood, and betrayal, and psychos...and bike races, sand, skags, and sporks." It doesn't quite have the same ring... Continue Reading →
As exhausting as it is exciting, Nioh 2 just keeps you coming back for more. It's a worthy successor to the first game, building on the strong foundations that made the original game great. Level design, enemy variety, weapons, character customization—you name it, Team Ninja polished it to perfection.
If you are in any way familiar with ConcernedApe and his updates then you will already be aware that this man does not mess around when it comes to content patches. A Stardew Valley Patch usually contains so much content, bug fixes, and quality of life upgrades that you find yourself having to dedicate a... Continue Reading →
There are no restrictions on how you eliminate your prey - the means to their ends are left up to you.
Destruction AllStars is a brand new Playstation 5 Exclusive, free to download on Sony's PS Plus service. It's an exciting new vehicular combat game that boils down to a combination of Overwatch, Rocket League and Wreckfest packed into one colourful title. This template feels fresh and great fun to play, but it also raises questions of whether it will get very old very quickly, or if it will stand the test of time.
Days Gone is a post-apocalyptic open world game that merges two classic genres into one, the themes of zombie survival and action-adventure come together to provide an exciting, vastly interactive world with some truly thrilling moments. At times however, those highs are brought down by somewhat one dimensional characters and repetitive side missions.
