Developer: NetherRealm Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 14/04/2015 The Mortal Kombat series has such a rich and controversial history; so much, I’m very grateful that I got to witness it from its humble beginnings. Ever since I stepped up to a Mortal Kombat arcade cabinet with the iconic […]

Developer: Ohnoo Studios Platform(s): PC Exclusive Release: 04/03/2015 Point-and-click games used to feel like the tattered pop-up books in a library full of literary masterpieces, but they have come far since those days. With more basic controls that usually leave out combat, a point and […]

Developer: Gearbox Platform(s): PC Exclusive Release: 25/2/2015 Homeworld was one of those games that never lost its appeal with age. Even though I couldn’t play it on any modern computers, I could just look up old screenshots of it and instantly see why I loved […]

Developer: Colossal Order Platform(s): PC Exclusive Release: 10/03/2015 Growing up as a Warhammer obsessed teen, dreaming up cities with pristine infrastructure wasn’t my top priority.

Developer: Ninja Theory Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One Release: 10/03/2015 I was surprised by how awesome DmC: Devil May Cry was back in 2013. Having gone in with low expectations, I was absolutely blown away. Now, two years and one generation on, DmC Devil May Cry: […]

Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires

dynasty-warriors-8-empires_review-score

Developer: Koei Tecmo Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 29/02/2015 It could be argued that Dynasty Warriors has to perform one of the hardest balancing acts of any on-going gaming franchises today.
