Shovel Knight

review-score_shovel-knight

Platform(s): PC, Wii U & 3DS Release: 26/06/2014 I wasn’t really sure if I would enjoy this game. I’ve seen a few “8-bit” titles recently, and some of them turned out to be pretty good, I suppose? However, here was yet another one, and I […]

TWD-S02E04-REVIEW-SCORE

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 22/07/2014 The Walking Dead is a rare creature in that it so surreptitiously crawls under your skin, for which you will only notice once your salty tears are stinging the wound it left behind while killing cherished characters. I’ve never felt emotions […]

Fist of Awesome

Platform(s): PC & MAC Release: 04/07/2014 Have you ever wanted to punch a bear in the mouth? This is the burning question asked by the hilarious, and appropriately named, team at “I Fight Bears” and their debut game called “Fist of Awesome.” Founded through a […]

GRID: Autosport

grid-autosport-review-score

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 27/06/2014 There’s a certain elegance to the racing genre that’s not always visible to outsiders; that goes beyond the flashy cars and roaring engines. Perfectly timed overtaking manoeuvres and sticking to the optimum racing line sound a little dull, but in practice […]

Valiant Hearts: The Great War

valiant-hearts-review-score

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 26/06/2014 I honestly couldn’t tell you how many Nazi’s I’ve taken down via World War II based shooters, over the last two decades. Thousands upon thousands, I’m more than certain of it. And yet, with so many virtual casualties at my behest, […]

The Fall

Platform(s): PC, Mac & Linux Release: 30/05/2014 Steam sales are just the best, right? In fact, there are few things that I enjoy more than picking a random game that I’ve never heard of before, going in with absolutely no expectations whatsoever, and then proceeding […]

Richard & Alice

richard-alice_review-score

Platform(s): PC Exclusive Release: 06/06/2014 Richard & Alice is a game that I wouldn’t usually pickup as I’m generally very stuck in my gaming flavoured ways. I personally tend to look for the traditional fighters and third person adventure games, so, in truth, I rarely […]

Wolfenstein: The New Order

wolfenstein-the-new-order-review-score

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 20/05/2014 And here you thought you were done with killing Nazis. Well, think again. The WWII shooter genre went stale a few years ago, and even the Nazi zombie gimmick has become overplayed (refer to South Park: The Stick of Truth for […]

Watch_Dogs

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 27/05/2014 Oh, Watch Dogs. You elusive hound, you. You’ve teased me since 2012 with that deliciously hopeful E3 trailer, so rife with relevance and cultural understanding. Over time, you gestated in my mind as the game that couldn’t be messed up, the […]

Murdered: Soul Suspect

Murdered_Soul_Suspect_review_score

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 06/06/2014 Anything supernatural, mysterious, or slightly chilling never fails to spark my curiosity. When a game exhibits any of these qualities, however, I more often than not find myself playing with all the lights on, no volume, and with one eye closed. In […]
